FROM the hygienic point of view, the Port of London must present one of the greatest problems in the world. Into it come ships from all over the globe, bringing with them men of all nationalities, and the possibility of infection with any of the terrible diseases known to mankind, particularly the plagues of the East-cholera, typhoid, Yellow Jack. To prevent these diseases from being brought ashore is a work that demands all the ingenuity of medical science, and how it is accomplished Dr. C. F. White , Medical Officer of the Port of London, will explain in this evening's talk.

THE Rhapsody, founded on tunes which may well be actual Breton folk songs, is in two distinct movements, of which the second undergoes a good many changes of speed and rhythm. The first begins in an easy-going pastoral way with a tune for one clarinet alone, a happy, ambling tune. Other instruments join until the whole orchestra is busily engaged, but the first tune really forms the basis of the whole movement. The second begins very simply with a tune on the strings and from it the whole of the first section is built up; Then thero is a brief return to the speed and something of the melody of tho first movement, and it and the simple tune from the beginning of the second alternate one with the other for a time. The end ii formed by the pastoral tune from the beginning ; it fades away very softly at the close.
