THIS is the sixth of Professor Elliot Smith 's talks, and he has now advanced to the comparison between such slow and clumsy creatures as the lobster and the crab, with their series of complicated limbs and appendages, and the graceful, swift-moving fish. This difference, however, depends less upon the shape of the creature than upon the efficiency of its nervous system, and in particular of the labyrinth, or statoeyst, of which he spoke last week.
Sung by DALE SMITH
SCHUMANN'S happy marriage, at the agj of thirty, seems to have been a wonderful incentive to composition.
In one form, especially in song, he poured out his emotions. Over a hundred songs were composed in that first year of married life. Among them was this cycle of sixteen songs, entitled The Poet's Love (Dichterliebe, in German).
The words are by Heine, the poet who, forbidden to live in his native land, spent some time in London, and ended his days in France, in bodily suffering.
The story first traces the growth of love in the heart of the poet. Suddenly comes his sorrow. His loved one is lost to him.
He seeks to escape, in solititude, his sad recollections, but the image of the lost one is ever poignantly before him.
Finally, resigned to the fading of his dreams, he would put away his memories and bury in a mighty coffin all his sorrow and love, intermingled.
To-night we are to have half of the cycle--tho first nine songs.

A NYONE who attended the famous Halle Concerts at Manchester for thirty-five consecutive seasons must have constantly heard one man at the organ throughout the whole period. This was C. H. Fogg , who was Organist to the Halle Society during all those years, and was. in fact, one of the best-known practising musicians in the North.
His son is Eric Fogg , born in February, 1903.
Hy 1920, Eric Fogg could already claim a very considerable output of music, and in that year he conducted a Ballet of his at a Queen's
Hall ' Prom. '
In the last seven years he has simplified his style, and has already published a great deal of music which. in the opinions of many, not. merely shows promise, but gives us "actual achievement.
To-night we are to hear representative works by this Composer, in the performance of which we have the advantage of his co-operation. ORCHESTRA
