STRENUOUS WALL SCALING BY SOLDIERS.

by assldnons drilling. There are times in battle when efficiency In this feat is
highly useful, as in the onee of the allied armies storming the ancient walks of
Peking a few years ago. An American soldier from Iowa was the first man
over the walla. The human ladder arrangement, one man climbing up over
the shoulders of another, and ao on. Is among the thrills of the service.
