Milit,ry law requires that ten days

2,850 fighting men, according to
hilitary etimiates. Thlis is based on
n estimate of 16,0)00 men in General
hafter's original expedition and
but 10,00 in various expeditio
which have gone since then, making
in all 20,000 men. Against this,
however, must be deducted the cas

also tho muon1 confined to the hospital

23,000 men available today as the

The re-onforcements have gone

The most interesting part of the
