I KILLED IN BATTLE, In regular battles the proportion of loss, ainone men and horses is quite close, and in band"to-hand combats of cavalry, as well as in sharp artillery engagements, for every man killed or woundea there is also a dumb warrior entitled to a place beside him on the roll of honour. The Light Brigadt at Balaclava rode in 660 (not 600) strong, and lost 288 men, but of the 660 horses 360 were shot down by the Russian guns. In the fierce charges of the German Uhlans and Cuirassiers at Vionville, Mars- la-Tour, in 1870, 1,400 men and 1,600 horses were killed and wounded. In the first artillery contest on the same field, 730 men and over 1,000 horses fell around the guns.
