Do not keep the cruel secret from me
We are sticking to the Da range
now. There's something about the
name of the place that fascinates me.
The name of it contains a mighty
good start on what I feel like saying
whenever I think about this whole
Manchurian mess. Most of these
passes weren't presented by the pas
senger whose name is written on the
back of them, so we took them up
and collected fare. But from the
way those nasty Japs with their stab
'knives and guns are slashing away
at us we can't tell how soon these
same passes will be in the hands of
the scalpers. That's a pretty good
railroad gag for a man in my fix to
get off, isn't it, Nick?
You've probably been seeing in the
dispatches that General Peterhof hasp
been playing smash with the Japs.
He captured a lot of prisoners and
did some other pretty valuable execu
tion a day or so ago. There's a
pretty,good story connected with that
effective work of his:
In spite of all our hard luck and
lickings we're still jovial, a regular
set of kidders. Were it not for my
native modesty, I might say that I
am regarde'd in Mukden as the vil
lage cut-up. So when the baby was
born at Peterhof all the fellows be
gan twitting Peterhof about his name.
Among other things they called him
was "the human nursery." For
some reason, this one name was like
a red flag to a bull, and whenever it
was handed to Pete there was trou
ble. A lot of the officers had been
joshing him the morning of that bat
tle, and he was getting ready to fight
four of them at once when the sentry
brought in the alarm and he had to
get busy. If the Japs had known
what a humor Pete was in they would
never have tackled him that morning.
They got what was intended for the
officers who had been doing the kid
ding. I've detailed the men in re
lays of five to go and yell "Human
nursery" in front of Pete's tent every
morning. If this irritation keeps
up we may yet lick the Japs.
