SRPSKOG KRALJA SRPSKI ROD.

(The Serbian National Hymn: Translated by Elizabeth Christitch.) God of Justice! Thou Who saved us When in deepest bondage cast, Hear Thy Serbian children's voices, Be our help as in the past. With Thy mighty hand sustain us, Still our rugged pathway trace: God, our Hope! protect and cherish Serbian crown and Serbian race! Bind in closest links our kindred, Teach tho lovo that will not fail, May the loathed fiend of discord Never in our ranks prevail. Let tho golden fruits of union Our young tree of freedom grace; God, our Master! guide and prosper Serbian crown and. Serbian race! tordl avert from us Thy vengeance, Thunder of Thy dreaded ire; Bless each Serbian town and hamlet, Mountain, meadow, hearth, and spire. Whan our host goes forth to battle, Death or victory to embrace— God of armies! be our leader I Strengthen then tho Serbian race! On our sepulchre of ages Breaks the resurrection morn, From the slough of direst slavery Serbia anew is born. Through five hundred yeare of durance We have knelt before Thy face, All our kin, 0 God! deliver I i Thus entreats |&9 Sexbi&a xacfe

A WOUNDED SCOT'S HEROISM. A typical instance of soldiers' heroism in battlo and stoicism in suffering was related to mo by a soldier of the —th Hussars. After tlie marvellous charge of the Highlanders on the German heavy guns near Hanbourdin on the 17th October the Hussar was sent with a messago to tho base. On the way he encountered a Seaforth Highlander going in the same direction. Something in the man's set face prompted the question "Are you hurt?" '* Aye, a sma' matter," was the reply. A small matter, truly; the man's arm was shattered from shoulder to elbow. "Are you going to sick bay?" said the cavalryman. "It's a mile and a-half away. Get on my gee." "No, no," said the. Scot; " I'll just walk. You'll find many worse hit than me." —'TimesV correspondent. On the North Ground on Saturday, at the conclusion of their weekly fixture, the members of the Christian Brothers' third grade team made a presentation to Mr A. J. Foley, who left on Monday morning with tho reinforcements for Trentham. Mr E. \\ r . Spain, in making the presentation, referred in eulogistic terms to the high esteem in which Mr Foley was held by hn follow members, and to his many excellent qualities. While they all regretted his departure, they could not but recognise his patriotic action in joining at so critical a period, and they trusted that his absence would not be a lengthy one, and that he would return at no "distant date to receive the hearty welcome which would await him. Mr Foley spoke feelingly in reply, thanking the "members for tlteir useful presents. He could assure them they would occupy no small space in his thoughts while absent, and concluded expressing his appreciation of the cordial relations that bad always existed between himself and his fellow members.
