NOTES ABOUT EGYPT. The claiming of Egypt as n British Protectorate means that 3G3,1S1 srj. mill's arc added to tho British Em liiro, ami u population of upwards of 11.000,000 comes directly under our ;Uig. Tho cultivatoil nnil sottlod area of Egypt, however, only coverB just over 12,000 square miles. Moslems number over 10,000,000, or just over '.Hi per cent, of the popula tion; Christians, ft per cent, ltut a small percentage of the natives can read or write—only eiglity-tivo in every thousand males, and threo In every thousand females. The term "protectorate" means that while Egypt will have a native ruler and a native Government, we shall make ourselves responsible for the protection of tier Interests.

FROM THE FIRING LINE. "Good-bye, You FcMowbI" It Is with a brave, cheery word and a calm, clear courage that our re serve gunners take the places of their comrades who havo been shot down at the guns, knowing full well that they In turn can scarcely hope to stir vlve. llero la u typical Instance: Thirty gunners of a Brit hill Held bat tery had just been killed and wound ed.
