THE Navy of Nelson's day was a very interesting institution, and there was much that is strange to modern ideas in the life that was lived between those wooden walls. This afternoon Miss Rhoda Power will describe life in Nelson's flagship as it appeared to a midshipman of 1805.

Ballad No. I in D minor (' Edward '), Op. 10
Waltzes from Op, 39
THE first of the four Ballads that make up
Brahms' Op. 10 is described as .' After the Scottish ballad Edward '-the words of which the composer later set as one of his Ballads and Romances (Op. 75). This ancient tale, the spirit of which is caught in the piece we are to hear, is found in Percy's Reliques. It is » dialogue between a mother and her son. He comes in with reddened sword, and she anxiously . asks what is the meaning of it. He says first that he has killed his steed. Pressed, he declares that he has killed his father. In the mother's heart fear and horror grow. He says ho will' ' fare over the sea,' leaving his wife and children for ever. ' And what will ye leave to your ain mither, dear ? ' she tremblingly asks. In anger and despair, the son cries out,' The ourso of hell frao me shall ye bear ! '—for ' sic counsels ye gave to me.'

given time. It should be viewed in this context and with the
understanding that it reflects the attitudes and standards of its time
- not those of today.
