NURSE CAVELL I NATIONAL -MEMORIAL I SERVICE IMPRESSIVE SCENES AT ST. PAUL'S CATHEDRAL QUEEN ALEXANDRA PRESENT The memorial service to the late Miss Edith Cavell, held on Friday in St. Paul's Cathedral, London, was a remarkable de- monstration and tribute to one whose fate has aroused the deepest emotions of the resentment and horror among civilised peoples. A heavy pall of fog hung over the city and the suburbs in the early hours, but notwithstanding these adverse conditions crowds began to arrive before eight o'clock, and within a couple of hours long queues had gathered on the steps at the western doors. Besides the general public awaiting ad- j I mission "here were members of the ser- vices, nurses in uniform, and represenia- fives of the Women's Volunteer Jieserv\3» Khaki and naval dress was prominent, but the great majority of persons of both sexes were in deep mourning. The doors were thrown open at ten o'clock, and the free seats of the great building speedily filled. In its long history, the great national Cathedral has been the scene of many great functions, both of thanksgiving and of mourning for departed servants of the State, but on Friday morning it was im- possible to gaze on the faces of the vast congregation without realising that they were gathered together to give expression lo an intimate and personal sorrow. A Wonderful Gathering. Filling the nave from the dome to the western entrances, and closely massed in the north and south transept, the waiting congregation sat or kn(-,It-for hundreds occupied themselves -in private devotion. They were representative of every social grado of his Majesty's subjects, and of many professions and callings. There were large deputations from hos- pitals and institutions, and the nursing profession, to which the martyred woman belonged, was in strong force. There were to be seen here and there small groups of wounded men of our own Imperial Services, and other mourners wearing the uniform of the Allied troops. The official rlres gave touches of colour, but the prevailing tone, »*i"t:ecially of the general public, was black. The members of the Cathedral staff were for some time occupied in conducting ticket-holders to the seats, stretelung right and left near the entrance to the sanctuary. Here in an open reserved space below the ohoir was stationed [ the Band of the 1st Life Guards. The in- j strumentalists, who had discarded their scarlet full dress for service uniform, ap- propriately opened their programme with Schubert's Grande Marche Heroique," to the very effective arrangempnt of Mr. George Miller. This was followed by the minor tones of the Killed in Action lament from Somervill's Symphony in T). After these opening selections came j Vprdi's H Joan of Arc" overture, and a particularly impressive rendering of Mas.<;(>neU's Angelus." Miss Cavell's Sister. Mrs. Cavell, the venerable mother of Nurse Cavell, was. owing to her condition of health, unable to he present, but a seat had been reserved for her, and it was left unoccupied. She was rppresented by a. daughter, Mrs. Wainwright. Their Majesties the King and Queen were represented hy Mr. E. W. Walling- ton. Earl Howe attended on behalf of Queen Alexandra. The Premier was accompanied by Mrs. A lcl-Li i th. Lord Robert Cecil and Sir Horace Eumbold were from the Foreign Office, and also seated under the dome were the Secretary of State for the Home Office, the President of the Local Govern- ment Board, the Postmaster-General, and the President of the Board of Education. ?ir A. Keogh attended as representing the fWrefarv of tnte for War. The chfln-I cenor of the Exchequer and the Financial Secretary to the Treasury were unavoid- ably absent, but Mrs. McKenna and Mrs. Montagu occupied the seats allotted to these members of the Ministry, Lord Mayor's Procession. Ten minutes before the hour, as the last strains of Massenet's Angehis died the Lord Mayor's procession ap- moached. The great assemblage stood gvllile tho official representatives of the lit.. slowly traversed the nave from the western front. The party wore their scar let robes of office, and the mace was iiorne in front of Alderman Sir Vessey Strong, who was present as deputy chief magistrate owing to the absence of the Lord Mayor through indisposition.

ALLIED TROOPS IN I SERBIAi
ALLIED TROOPS IN I SERBIA. I ￼ British Supporting the' French. I FALL OF PIROT DENIED. i I The enemies of Serbia are closing in upon) her from thegjporth and cast. The Bul-I garian-3 new hold a line from Zaitchar, through Kniashevatz, to a height north, of Pirot. The threat to Nish from this advance js plain. Kniashevatz is less than 20 direct miles from Nish. There is, how- ever, no through railway communica- tion between them, as the line has never been completed. From the north the Austro-Germans are advancing on a wide front, which runs, at present, slightly south-east from Valievo and then swings in a broad curve north-east almost to the Danube at Kladovo. Here it joins hands with the right wing of the Bulgarian-. Through the gap that still exists between the lines of the allied enemies, roughly from Zait- char to Kraguievatz, the Serbian re- treat is being carried into the interior. Another serious factor in the Serbian situation ib the invasion of the north- western frontier. Here the Monte- negrins are fighting the battle of Ser- bia. They now admit that the enemy has forced the passage of the Drina east of Vishograd. The enemy's objec- tive here is plainly the railhead at Ushitza, about 20 miles from the point where he has crossed the Drina. In the south the Bulgarian attack down the valley of the Valdar seems at least to have been arrested. The Serbians are said to have retaken Uskub, and there are reports of a French advance from Krivolak which threatens the Bulgarian's hold on Ishtip. NEWS OF THE ALLIED FORCES. Paris, Friday.—M. Rutin writes in tue Echo de Paris": We can deny on the most trustworthy authority, that the town of I'irot has been taken by assault by ;). J^filgarians, as is announced in telegrams of German origin. Pirot is still in the hands of the Serbians, and the Government is still at Nish, which will be warmly defended. The French troops which were landed, of whom we have good news, and who are entrenched in the region of Krivolak- Sfrumnitza, are a bout to receive on their right and left the support of the British contingents landed at SaJonika. BULGARIANS ANNIHILATED.

The height of Drenova Glava, 25 kilo- metres north-west of Pirot, has been occu- pied. Kniashevatz is 22 miles south of Zait- char and 25 miles. north-east of Nish. Both towns are on the Timok river. Pirot, 38 miles south-east of Nish. is on the River Nisava. and Drenova Glava height is about 25 miles from Nish. Bulgarians Claim Pirot. Amsterdam, Thursday (received Fri- day).— A telegram from Sofia, via Berlin, states that after long and sanguinary fighting the Bulgarians have captured the fortress of Pirot.
