FOOT FOREMOST.—"Vanity Fair" reminds us that, after all, Britain has heroes as well as Japan, and asks whether Port Arthur has any finer story of reckless courage than this: A gunner of H.M.S. b "iiesolution was standing by his gun at the Battle of the Saints as the ship came abreast of the French i flagship. The gun was loaded and ready to lire, when a shot entered the port and took the gunner's leg off at the knee. Like lightning the man plucked his neckcloth from his neck and made a quick ligature above the stump. The next instant he seized his leg that was lying on the deck and thrust it into the muzzle of the gun, which went off two seconds later. My foot," shouted the gunner, drunk with patriotism. is the first to board the Ville de Paris." 1
