Where It Gets Cold as the Devil and
They Have Blizzards Twice
a Week
Some Time During Cold Weather.
Dear Dad and Brother: I have made
a great discovery and as a last resort
I am turning to you both in a vain
effort to see if you can possibly bor borrow
row borrow $5000 for me in order that I may
further, my propaganda and thereby
become .extremely .wealthy. I have
discovered that if one breeds bed
bugs with lightning bugs that he can
get up intfhe dark and find the beg
bugs without turning dn the light and
getting cussed out and probably run
for a "shoot" before the commanding
officer the next morning for having
his lights burning after taps. Who
would have ever thought that I would
deriveso much benefit by going into
the Marine, Corps and becoming a
full-fledged "sea-going leather-neck."
But I feel that if I can make out and
get the thing started that, by such a
thing I will be declared enormously
great as one of the benefactors of
and the uplifting of the human race,
for have to roll from one's bed in
the cold dark hours of the night,
silently reach across to where one's
bayonet" hangs and pulling it from
the scabbard jump from your bed,
lighting the lantern quickly and make
a wild .dash under the mattress and
just as you are about to run the little
despoiler of beautiful sleep and
dreams through with your goodly
weepon have a sentry yell out, "Out
with the lights; what yuh tink dis
am," ind have to' turn away, blowing
out your light and shed bitter tears
of disappointment to think of the vic victory
tory victory and heroism to follow, that might
have been yours. The only difficulty
that I expect to experience will be the
fact that some of them may forget to
light their tail light at night, but I
propose to pass a strict ordinance to
that effect and have it enforced The
only drawback will be the funds.
We have just emerged from another
of those blizzards although it was not
as severe as the other. My tent stood
the strain of this one as I saw fit to
haul a piledriving machine down
there the other afternoon and sink a
few various and sundry tent flakes.
The only thing that has in the least
been disturbing to my peace of mind
is the mere fact that one of these so so-called
called so-called sea-going leather-necks went
and shoved a loaded magazine into
one of the machine guns while it was
in the company street and before he
could get the darn thing stopped shot
thirteen perfectly good holes in about
half of the tents in that particular
company and finally through the com com-panytmess
panytmess com-panytmess hall and then into the gulf.

though he did not touch anyone at
all, but it was just sheer luck that he
did "not for he might have killed half
of the company had they happened to
be in their tents for one of those bul bullets

out without even thinking about stopping. No
thanks we have no machine guns in
the Headquarters company.
By the way, I was chasing down
the field the other day myself, jab jabbing
bing jabbing imaginary kaisers with my bay bayonet
onet bayonet and leaping on hurdle after an another,
other, another, etc., when I made an effort to
take the high hurdle which is only
supposed to be taken with a light
marching pack and not the 80-pound,
heavy marching pack I had on, and
lo and behold I found when I arrived
at the heighth of my leap that I had
miscalculated about one inch more
effort. My toe caught the top, of the
hurdle and I proceeded to dig a

Use of" Civilians as Hostages and for
Screens Part of a Devlish
Ample proof that tihe march of the
German armies through Belgium
icas marked by massacres and cru cruelties
elties cruelties almost beyond belief is given
in a document made public by the
committee on public information.1
from which the following is taken:
The massacres in Belgium and
northern France were a part of the
German system of f rightfulness. An Another
other Another feature of this system was the
use of civilians as hostages and for
screens. v -. 1
In discussing the use of hostages the
German War Book (Kriegsbrauch 1m
LandkriegeKsays :
"By hostages are understood .those
persons who, as security or bail for
the fulfillment of treaties, promises, or
other claims, are taken or detained by
the opposing state or its army. Their
provision has been less usual in re recent
cent recent wars, as a result of which eome
professors of the law of nations have
wrongly decided that the taking of
hostages has disappeared .from the
practice of civilized nations. . .
v "A new application of Tiostage right
fwas practiced by the German staff in
!the war of 1870, when It compelled
leading citizens from (French towns
and villages tor accompany trains and
jlocomotives in order to protect the
railway communications which were
threatened by the people. Since the
lives of peaceable inhabitants, were,
(without any fault on. their part, there there-jby
jby there-jby exposed to grave danger; every
jwriter outside Germany has stigma stigmatized
tized stigmatized this measure as contrary to the
law of nations and as unjustified to towards
wards towards the inhabitants of the country."

Although their deeds in the Franco Franco-Prussian
Prussian Franco-Prussian war had been ; universally
condemned, as they themselves admit admitted,

'abandon such a useful measure xof

the forms were provided for such
acts In the next war. Both In Belgium
and In France the Germans have con constantly

says of the four Metro-Drew comed comedies
ies comedies in January:
"His First Love," another January
release of the' Metro-Drew comedies,

is a story based on a suggestion of

Bertie Badger Moyers. -This comedy,
which is scheduled to be shown on the
21st, deals with that question which

has been asked so often by wives of

their hubbies, "Am I the only women
you ever loved and asked to marry
you?" Of course, Henry answers,

'Tes, my darling," but he has his own

doubts of the truthfulness of the
statement.' In the eiid wifey convinces

him" that she believes him and then

he decidesito believe it himself.

The" World "gives a column and a

half on the notable opening of Rivoli,

New York's newest picture palace, in
which they say that the description in
