THE Russian Anton Rubinstein, one of the greatest Pianists of last century, achieved fame also (at any rate, in his own country), as Conductor and Composer. He became Master of Music at the Imperial Russian Court, and established the St. Petersburg Conservatoire of Music, of which he was Principal for several years. For these services lie received a title of nobility. Successful world tours followed: after one American tour it is said lie was offered £25,000 to come back and give another fifty concerts, but his dread of the voyage prevailed, and he refused. His Fancy Dress Ball, some numbers from which are now to be played, was originally a set of twenty Pianoforte Duets.

FOR the last ten years Dr. Danson has been
Bishop of the enormous diocese that includes Borneo, the third biggest island in the world, where his flock comprises not only the scattered British population, but the immigrant Chinese and the Dyaks, who were head-hunters a generation or two' ago. It is about these last, in the domains of the white Rajahs-the famous Brookes of Sarawak-that lie will talk tonight. Before lie went to this diocese he worked for many years in Singapore, Java and the Malay States, and lie is the only Bishop who has been shipwrecked twice.

Appeal on behalf of The National Union of Limbless ex-Service Men, by Mr. ALEC L. REA
THE man mutilated in the war is in especial need of the advice and assistance of some organization with regard to such. matters as pensions, employment and housing accommodation. This Union was founded for these purposes, and its Employment Bureau, in particular, has done good service to many a limbless man.
Mr. Rea, who makes the appeal, is known not merely in Liverpool shipping circles, but to the theatre-going public ns chairman of Reandco, the play-producing company that has succeeded to the prestige that its parent Reandean so long enjoyed.
