If only  the soil of South Africa could voice the deeds performed  upon it, hosv many Victoria Crosses "would have been  found to have been earned by Canada's sons!

Under the withering fire, the man whose mount is unharmed  halts, and, risking everything, waits to get his comrade safely  mounted behind him and carry him back to the Canadian  lines. It is a desperate deed, and one often performed but  seldom noticed. When, however, such an act is seen, the  reward dear to soldiers' hearts above every other is the  result.

It has been pointed out as a curious  fact .that the'letter "M" in almost all  known languages ��������� English, French"1,  Latin, Spanish, Greek', nebrew, Chinese and the others���������Is to be found in  the word which stands for mother or  nurse. Perhaps this is owing to its  representing a sound svhich exists in  every spoken speech and has the same  pronunciation in them all. It is also  exceedingly easy to utter and is one of  the first sounds that children make,  aud it therefore naturally enters into  the appellation given to the' nursing  parent m the first cries of recognition  and affection. There"is no doubt at all  that "ma" and the other baby names  for mother originated directly from the  child.
