UNDERGROUND LONDON, -4----- A CITY BENEATH A CITY. There are few corners of the earthi where the wonders of the world's ca pital are not known-700 square miles, an area three times as largo as: the county of Middlesex, and which: counts its citizens approximately to. twice as many millions as there are in the whole continent of Australia. Its palatial bnildings, its'stately streets; through which its rich tide of traffic rolls, its wealth and splendour, aud. its treasures of long-dead centuries; are an open book to the world. "Could we imagine," Mr. Charles, Knight writes in his "London,'" "that this great capital of capitals; should, ever be what Babyloro is-its; very site forgotten--one could not.but: almost envy the' delighe with, whichi the antiquaries of future time wouldl bear of some discovery of' a London: below the soil still remaining..

SOLDIER'S MEMORIAL SER- VICE AT SCRUBBY CREEK. AN IMPRESSIVE GATHERING. THE PATRIOTISM OF SCRUBBY CREEK. A congregation which completely filled the building assembled in the Scrubby Creek School House on Sunday evening, the 10th inst., to honour the memory of Private Alex- ander Woods (better known locally as Gingles, on account of his foster parents), who gave his life for the Empire, having been killed in France on the 3rd May, 1917. The pulpit, desk and table were draped in black, surmounted by the Union Jack, and vases of white flowers were placed at intervals. The Rev. Douglas Bruce conducted the service, which was most impressive. The rev. gentleman gave an appropriate sermon on the words, St. Luke 9.24, " Whosoever will save   his life, shall lose it, but whosoever will lose his life for my sake, shall save it." In the course of his remarks he said—This is one of the most important statements of Jesus. All of the state- ments of Jesus are of the greatest importan...

MY EXPERIENCES AT THE FRONT. BY CORPORAL E. A. HUIBBAnD, (CONTINUED). We were billettl in the town of Flessells, for a fortnight, and during that time we were by no means idle. \Vo were told we had come out of the line for a spell, blt I do not think there was much spell about it. Certainly we were able to tibtaoi our night's sleep in comfort, and were out of sound of the roaring of the guns, but from moorning till evening we had very little time to our. selves during the day. It was nothing but drill from morn till night, and after the training we had spent inl Egypt, no wonder to us thle work was monotonouous. It was while staying at Flessells that the i9th Battalion was inspected by General Sir Douglas Ilnig. The Ilattnlion was drawn upon parade oni one of thesurloundingllelde and while in review older the men were inspected by. the famous British General and his staff ; and at the conclusion a march past brought the afternoon to a close.
