EARLY June is a time of pause in the herbaceous border-a raggedness will creep into the beat-regulated gardens. Mrs. Joad's advice is aimed to tell you how to avoid that raggedness, and how to maintain a good phalanx of flowers well on into August and September.
SO far, these talks have analyzed the material at our disposal for the compilation and writing of the history of international relations. The present talk, being the conclusion and summary of the series, takes a special instance in the European history of the nineteenth century with a view to studying how we should set to work' to put together such an historical account. The instance taken, as a critical point in nineteenth century history, is the Congress of Berlin in 1878, and the test to be applied is Disrae!i's claim that ho came back from Berlin bringing ' peace with honour.'

LOVE IN A VILLAGE originally appeared as a Comic Opera in three Acts, at Covent Garden Theatre in 1762. The music was partly composed by the great Dr. Ame and partly compiled by him from music which was then in vogue, and the piece enjoyed a real success.
At that time rivalry between Covent Garden and Drury Lane was very keen ; contemporary records show that Arne's Opera was so popular that only on the nights when Garrick himself
. appeared at Drury Lane, was there anv audience there. No other attraction could prevail against the charm and humour of this light-hearted work.
When Sir Nigel Playfair revived the Opera and produced it at the Lyric, Hammersmith, in 1928, the munie was recast, and additional numbers composed, by Mr. Alfred Reynolds, the Musical Director there, a musician to whom many of the Lyric's productions owed a good deal of their popularity. To a thorough knowledge of the theatre and stage-craft, Mr. Reynolds unites a happy knack of genuine, natural, melody and a thorough craftsmanship in music. A good deal of his work is already familiar to listeners, and he has an assured place of his own among composers of the present day, as well as a strong hold on the affections of all who appreciate fresh and wholesome art with nothing sombre nor troublesome in its make-up.
