It has been their good foitune to have been selected from the nurses that, have come out from Canada. It Is the nearest any woman may get to the batthllne. They toil unremittingly with heart, and. body. Their reward is long trains of evacuated soldiers ftoinp to "I'dighty" with a chance for their lives. Vladivostok.
