A battle reminiscent of Thermopy
lae was fought at Hart's River, South
Africa, 17 years ago today, March 31,
l:io;. when a small body of Canadian
troops were entirely surrounded bv
ISoers. hundreds in number. and
fought valiantly and stubbornly until
every man was either killed or
wounded. Two month after that im-i.-.ortal
engagement the terms of peace
J'ere signed in Pretoria, and the
Dominion soldiers, covered with glory,
came sailing home to receive the
plaudits of their admiring country
men. During the South African war
224 brave sons of the Dominion laid
down their lives for the empire, and
hundreds of others were -wounded, all
of which sounds almost insignificant
when compared with the thousands
of Canadians who have died in this
war and the tens of thousands who
have been wounded and maimed.

TURKS NOW HAVE
PLENTY GF FOOD
Constantinople, March 29 (Cor
respondence of The Associated Press)
- Contrary to reports Turkey is well
supplied with food, and, while prices
are unusually high, they are much
lower than those prevailing in tho
Balkan states and in some other
countries of Europe.
The following list of current prices
which the consumer is called upon
to pay shows the actual condition:
Flour 26 cents pound; potatoes 11
cents; beans 20 cents; meat 50 cents,
and eggs 90 cents a dozen.
- Vegetables of all Kinds are not only
abundant but relatively cheap. Cloth
ing and shoes also may be had, but
generally the prices charged are so
high as to take them far beyond the
purses of the poor. Hotel rates are
lower than in most European cities;
and the service is as good as could
bo expected in a country Just emerg
ing from a long war.
In order that foodstuffs may be
placed within rang of the poor, the

down other prices as far as the actual
necessities are concerned. The work
of the Americans is attracting wide
attention and much interest.
Drugs, and in fact all medicines,
are very scarce and expensive. Most
large centers in Turkey and Asia
Minor need medical assistance.
The care of a million or more des
titute Armenian, Syrian and Greek
refugees in the Caucasus and through
out Asia Minor presents a most ser-
' ious prr.bjem. It is estimated that
there are in these countries no less
thah half a million fatherless chil
dren whose condition demands imme

taking up the task, but is finding that
