THE New Year, when the shops are selling off their surplus Christinas stock, is a great time for tho bargain-hunters, and competent observers have assured us that every woman is a bargain-hunter at heart.

After Mme. Aino Kallas, Lion Feuchtwanger and Karel Capek, Theodore Komisarjevsky takes his turn to tell us how we and our country impress a foreigner. He cannot claim to be a stranger, for he has been hero long enough to become recognized as one of the foremost producers working in the London theatre. Amongst many productions for which ho has been responsible may be mentioned The Cherry Orchard at the Lyric, Hammersmith, and Paul I, at the Court Theatre. In these two cases he showed us how Russian plays of two very different types should be produced-for he was himself a. friend of Chekov, and one of the most prominent personalities in the Russian theatre before the Revolution came.
