Today -100: October 24, 1912: Of nephews, and worships and kisses


Rebel General Félix Díaz, nephew of the former president-for-life of Mexico, is captured by government troops. He was depending on rather more of the Vera Cruz troops coming over to his side than actually did.

NYT Index Typo of the Day -100: “Turkish Battleship to Refit to Meet Greek Worships.”

Headline of the Day -100 (LA Times): “Girl Kisses Gov. Wilson and Calls It Politics.”
