This, according to the Chicago Saturday Blade, is Carolyn S.P. of New Platz, near Poughkeppsie, N.Y., who threw a red rose to Pte. Snelling, of the 18th Battalion as his corps left here for France. Pte. Snelling returned wounded, and announced that he has brought the red rose back to the girl who threw it. A dozen have claimed to have been in on Cupid’s battery, including a new arrival from Chicago.
