MARCHING THRU FLANDERS

perhaps, owing to pur ancestral home
having been near the line of the said
march, we can't help wincing at the
words. However, the following, writ
ten, by David Decker, a 14-year-old
Chicago boy, will do for all Americans
Bring the good old bugle boys,
Well sincr another sone:
Sing it with the spirit
That will start the world along;
Sing.it as we used to sing it,
Fifty million strong,
While we are marching through Flan Flanders.
ders. Flanders. Chorus
We're over here to win;
Above the battle's din
May be heard the chorus
From Paris to Berlin,
While, we are marching through
How the peasants shouted
When they heard that joyful sound
Of Uncle. Sam's soldiers,
Marching all around;
How the German autocrat
Well trample, on the ground
While we are marching, in, Flanders.
Yes and there are allied men-
Who weep with joyful tears
When they see those honored flags
They know will wave for years,
Hardly can they be restrained
From breaking forth in cheers
While we are marching in: Flanders.
"Pershing's dashing Yankee boys
Will never reach our coast,"
So the saucy Germans said,
And 'twas a handsome boast;
Had they not forgot, alas,
To reckon with the host
While we are marching on Flanders. ;
So well make a thoroughfare
For old democracy,
Five hundred ,miles in latitude,
-Eight hundred from the lee;
Tyrants flee1 before us,

While we are marching in Flanders.

WHERE WILD fOWL BREED
Yukon River and the Lakes of That
Hyperborean Region Favored
Spot of Many Birds.
Until the acquisition of Alaska by
the United States It was a wonder
where certain wild fowl went when
they migrated from temperate climes
on the approach of summer as well as
snowbirds and other small species of
the feathered tribe. It was after afterward
ward afterward found, observes a writer In the
Kansas City Journal, that their hab habitat
itat habitat in summer was the waters of
Alaska the Yukon river and the lakes
of that hyperborean region.
People wonder where the wild fowl
come from. They see the sandhill
crane, the wild goose heron and other
fowl every spring and fall pursue
their unwearied way, but like the wind,
they do not know whence they come
or whither they go.
Up on Golovine bay, on the north
side of Norton sound, Is the breeding
place of these fowls. All the birds
in creation, seemingly, go to that coun country
try country to breed. Geese, ducks, swans
and thousands upon thousands of sand sandhill
hill sandhill cranes are swarming there all the
time. They lay their eggs in the blue blue-stem
stem blue-stem grass In the lowlands.
Myriads of robins and swallows are
there, as well as millions of magnifi magnificent
cent magnificent grouse, wearing red combs and
feather moccasins. This grouse turns
as white as snow In winter.
You can kill dozens of teal ducks
or grouse as fat as butter balls in a
few moments. The wild fowl and
bears live on salmon berries and
huckleberries, with which the hills are
