' Daffodils in April,
Purple Flags in May,
Sweet peas like butterflies
Upon a summer day.
Brown leaves in autumn,
Green leaves in spring,
And berries in the winter
When the carol-singers sing.

FRUHLINGSGLAUBE. In Spring all seems gay. One forgets past sadness and future cares.
In Die junge Nonne there is a picture of a storm, in which tho novice recalls her tempestuous life when love raged in her heart, and her soul was dark. Now all is peace, for she has found heavenly consolation.
Lachen und Weinen-laughter and sorrow, love brings both. Bliss at dawn, tears at evening-who knows why ?
The lesson of Die Sterne is that man must aspire-must keep his eyes on high and fine things, if he is to find true happiness.
THIS evening Dr. Waterhouse reaches, in his survey of Religion, the study of Religion as Law. He points out the strength and the weaknesses of the state religion of Rome, and proceeds to discuss religion as the expression of Divine Law. This theory is exemplified to a great extent in the Old Testament, and also in some degree in the system of Islam. Under both systems the idea is emphasized of the identity of Religion with submission.
There are more than 5 million programme listings in Genome. This is a
