' LA BRABANC. ONNE.' ' N. & Q.' has put on record a splendid version of ' La Mar- seillaise ' (ante, p. 64). Perhaps room ma\r also be found for the following fine transla- tion of the Belgian National Anthem which has been rescued from the perishable and not easily accessible columns of The Mid- Sussex Times:


The years of slavery are over :

Raised from the tomb, hear Belgium claim. The spoils that courage can recover,

Her banner, privilege,* and name. And in your hands, s-upreme and daring,

people who henceforth are free, Scroll on the ancient flag you're bearing,,

"The King, The Law, and Liberty."

On your untiringf march proceeding

From victory^ unto victory go ; The God of Belgium, always heeding,

On valour doth His grace bestow. Work on, and show your pastures owning:

Proof of your toil abundantly ; Let splendour ot your hearts be crowning,

" The King, The Law, and Liberty."

Brothers, our outspread arms inviting,

For us the too long discord ends ; Belgians, Batavians, truce to fighting,

The peoples who are free are friends. Stronger and firmer let us tether

The bonds of our fraternity, Proclaiming side by side together

" The King, TU Law, and Liberty."

Mother, to who > our love is owing,

Our hearts, our lives, to thee we give ; For thee, dear land, our blood is flowing ;

We swear thou shalt for ever live. Majestic, beauteous, dying never

In thine unconquered unity, For ever this thy boast, for ever,

" The King, The Law, and Liberty."



ELECTRO-PLATING AND ITS DISCOVERERS* The obituary notice of Sir John Bing- ham in The Daily Telegraph of the 19th of March recalls the origin of electro- plating. It states that Sir John waa " head of the firm of Walker & Hall, tha pioneers of the electro -plate industry.' Seventy years ago " Mr. Wright, a Sheffield surgeon, invented the method of depositing silver and gold indelibly on metal ware bj means of electricity." This was taken up by an artisan, George Walker, a man of " great technical and inventive ability," who went into partnership with Henry Hall, and together with him brought the invention to perfection. The Binghams- who succeeded to the control of the firm.
