"On their swords the red rust
On their graves the red roses
Like old hate turned to dust
On their swords the red rust
While love blooms as it must;
So this day dawn discloses
On their swords the red rust
On their grave the red roses.

Last year the list of those who slept in Olathe cemetery was published and we present it again this year.  It has grown since then it will be seen.  This list save one name was handed the writer [sic] by the late Col. Marquis, a short time ago, he saying that the Grand Army Post desired that it be again published.  We remarked, "Colonel, we will publish it in connection with the Decoration Day services and will keep the list until then and if any changes occur, please to let us know."  "I will," he remarked, little thinking that his honored name would be the ony change in the list.  He had written the names of Mr. William Martin, T. J. Hadley and A. Bowen at the bottom of this list and asked us to place the names where they belonged in alphabetical order.  We do so with his own name, which has so recently been added to this long list of heroic dead.  Following are the names of those whose graves are in the local cemetery and are so affectionately remembered on the sacred day:
