It is a small place which the captors assert was re cently operated in and raided by Nor thern troops. It certainly looks like it, since there are only a few houses with roofs on them. There is no food in this district, which accounts for the raids on our food by the bandits. We are quartered in shacks which a self-respecting pig woculd scorn. Most of our captors wear pigtailh and are a dirty lot. We marched seven miles on Mon ~day up the valley over the 0ivide and down another divide to this place. It is a beautiful valley, but there are veryv few people owing to the constant and frequent raids. There are poppies in cultivat...

It is a matter of mood whether a datcer does well or not, and. he must have a highly-developed musical comprehen rlon. As for women dancers, fDeig pretty and dancing cleve...

Kisses and Kisses LONDON, July 29. [Newspaper Article] — News — 2 August 1923
Kisses and Kisses LONDON, July 29. After concluding her speech at the "No more war" demonstration in Hyde Park today, Maxdemoiselle Laurist, re presenting France, approached Fraulien Stcinitz, who represented Germany, and embraced and kissed her. The audience, who were deeply moved, applauded 'igorously. There's the kiss we call platonic, And the one that's just laconic; Th:ere's the kiss we give our dearest oenonies; While tile kiss of love or passion Is of quite another fashion, 'Tis the one the general public rarely sees. There's the morning peck of Bertle, When he says good-bye to Gertio, As she sees him off to business at the door; There's the kiss we give unhealthy, Otd relations who are wealthy, With a murmured prayer there won't be many more. There's the sticky kiss of Sonny, Who's been eating bread and honey, There's the chaste salurte bestowed on Miadame's hand. These are just a few examples, Just, a casual set of samples, But the latest kiss is one that beats the band. At...
