THIS is the first of a series of talks-arranged in consultation with the Women's Institute authorities- designed to give English people semo idea of rural life and agricultural organization in other parts of the world. Mrs. Alexander has travelled much in Jugo-Slavia, particularly off the beaten track.
PROFESSOR LEIPER, who has been nominated by the Ministry of Agriculture to give this talk, is an authority on the recondite subjects of Helminthology, Parasitology and Protozoology-which, being translated, means that he knows all about the various unpleasant organisms that grow in and feed on living creatures. Amongst many other professional distinctions, he is a member of the Agricultural Research Council, and has accompanied several research expeditions to the tropics under the auspices of the Colonial Office.

Sonata in E (Op. 10!)), First and Second Movements
THE quiet cheerfulness of the opening of the FIRST MOVEMENT strikes a note cf freshness and delight. A first tune of a singing character is very soon followed by a slow theme, in serious vein. Tliese changes of mood, with new matter, and the re-presentation of the themes, with modifications, make up a Movement of the purest charm.
Tho SECOND MOVEMENT (Very quick) runs a lively course, full of energy and a certain urgency.
THIS talk opens an exceptionally interesting series, of which the first part will be given this session, and the second in the autumn. These first six talks will deal with the development of mind and character in the child, treating of such matters as work and overwork, the influence of parents, brothers and sisters and friends, the nervous child and the problem child. The autumn session will deal with the adolescent.
All the three speakers who will take part in the series -Professor Burt, Dr. H. Crichton-Miller and Dr. W. A. Potts—are very prominent figures in the psychological world. Professor Burt, who gives the first two talks, is perhaps the greatest living expert on educational psychology, of which he is Professor at London University. He is Psychologist to the London County Council, and his book, ' The Young Delinquent,' is a standard work on child psychology.

Quintet in C
THIS must have been one of the last works
Schubert wrote, for it belongs to the year in which he died-1828, when he was only in his thirty-second year. The inclusion of two 'Cellos among the five instruments gives great richness and solidity of tone, and the management of the dialogue between the five is a delight in itself.
By ' L. du G. ' of Punch
