SERVIANS MONUMENTS. I Servia is becoming a country of monu- ments. Among the peasants a custom pre- vails of honouring relatives slain in battle by the erection of a block of wood, in which is rudely carved a bas-relief of the departed. These monuments are erected near the soldier's home, when it is impos- sible to place them on the field where he fell. As the Servian heroes are now falling in the enemy's territory the monuments are necessarily raised in their homes, and very few farms are to be found to-dav in which at least one of these crude carvings is not to be seen. They are usually painted in vivid reds and blues. Above the head of the wooden figure is an inscription giving I the soldier's name.
