BRITON AND TURK.
A Surprise, a Fair Fight and the Way
the Battle Ended.
There 1» a story of Gallipoli that
deals with a tight in the open and ex
hibits the "unspeakable” Turk as u fair
and worthy enemy. This Is the story:
A young English officer, doing ob
servation work nlonc, was suddenly
confronted by a Turkish officer, simi
larly engaged. The Turk was as sur
prised as the Briton, tint came for
ward, revolver in hand. The English
man had no revolver. He stood his
ground. Ids lisnds in the large pockets

Swing that his adversary was un
armed, the Turk, much to the surprise
o f the Briton, threw down bis gnu and
put up bis lists in approved prize ring
The Englishman put himself
ou guard, and the next moment the
Turk flung himself upon him. and the
pair began to tight desperately.
The men were about the same age,
the same weight and had equal knowl
edge o f the art of boxlug. They
fought without stopping for about ten
minutes. By ttint time each was fair
ly exhausted, and they paused for n
brief rest, only to continue their little
private accounting when they had
found their breath. Round after round
the tight went on. while out lu the
gulf o f Saros the ships tired auto
matically. and back o f each of them
the field artillery thundered
teemed to be able to get any declaim
advantage over the other, and at last
Turk and Englishman rolled over ou
the ground and laughed and laughed.
Just then the Englishman's band
touched something. It was the Turk's
pistol. He picked It up and handed it
to his enemy. The two young men
shook hands, and each returned to his
own lines.—New York Cost
