Thanks to their heroic devotion, eighty
five ot the llttlo ones aro safe. One ot

year-old babe that died ln the arms of
tho mother suporlor, as she strove In vain
to carry it to safety. Tho other sisters
lost their lives because they did not leave
their posts until the children had been led
Theirs was a heroism that stands forth
like a shining light from the pages of tho
day's news. Theirs was a martyrdom ot
love and devotion which must cause a
husy nation to pause a moment ln Its

no ecstasy of battle led them on to die
In a triumphant cause. They saw their
