All of the miniitere, eiceot Hon Mar- tin Burrell, who at the-Torahto hibition, are in town The next few weeks, promises to be a period 6f ex-" ceptfonai activity in. eies. As intimated a aum- ber of important questions are to oe protection. Occa- sionally, there is one that has to do with relief work. Such' is thc'present invention. Thc work of the Hod Cross and hos- pital attendants has become so haz- ardous, and their immunity from at- tack while engaged in rescue work, has become so uncertain, that some more material physical protection has been considered necessary. To meet these conditions a bullet prooi stretcher" cover has been in- vented in England. It appears to meet the conditions perfectly, it con- sists of a long metal shield- closed and arched at the top, and high enough to enable the attendants to stand erect within; At the front, end the shield is rounded and eloped backward to deflect bullets and two) sight openings or eye holes are pro-j vided through .which the attendants may locate the wounded. The sides are completely enclosed and the stretcher itsell-forms .the bottom. A vertical cross section would show the shield as U-shaped. It is mounted on four wheels. By this means, the stretcher bearers may locate a wounded soldier without danger to him stretch- er and wheel him to a place ol safs- ty. This seems in many ways a val- invention. Division. Both battalions will go to front as complete units. AUTUMN Copenhagen.
