Sir J. ARTHUR THOMSON , LL.D.: ' Mendel (1822-1884)-One of the Founders of the Science of Heredity '
GREG OR MENDEL is one of the most important scientific innovators to whom only belated justice has been done ; so his name comes aptly into a series in which Sir J. Arthur Thomson seeks to give the pioneers of science their rightful place. A contemporary of Darwin, Mendel carried out researches in the nature of heredity that many years later caused considerable modification in the theory of evolution based on Darwin's teaching. Mendel lived and died an unknown monk in Moravia. For eight years he studied the results of hybridization, or ' crossing,' among peas, and by linking botany with mathematics, established startling and original principles regarding the transmission and recurrence of exact characteristics. Ho published his results in 1865, but they remained unknown until twenty years after his death. Subsequent research on the same lines brought Mendel's discoveries to light: his principles were elevated into the Mendelian law of heredity, and as he had prophesied, ' his time had come.'

ASTRA DESMOND (Contralto)
THE action of this ballet roughly follows that of the nursery rhyme. The king enters with the queen, his daughter.
As soon as they are seated, the king's pipe is brought in with elaborate pomp.
Then the cook enters with a huge bowl, followed by assistants carrying ladles, and alter the king has drained it, the fiddlers enter. The first fiddler plays a. morris dance (' Go and 'list for a sailor), and capers to it; the second, a romantic young man, then plays a folk-tune (' The bold young farmer '), which so bores the king that he goes to sleep—though the queen is better pleased with the handsome fellow. The third fiddler plays grotesquely, but the king is delighted, and awards him the prize. All the courtiers join in a general dance which lasts until the king leads them all out into the banqueting hall-all except the romantic fiddler, who is left alone. But the queen has not forgotten him, and, returning alone, throws him a flower. He, however, indifferent to her advances, goes off playing, and leaves the ruffled queen with nothing to do but to return to the banquet.
