There are three senses in the skin-the temperature sense, the pain sense, and the sense of touch. The temperature sense tells us whether heat is coming into or going out of our body. Pain gives us warning of injury. Touch, however, gives us much more information. When an object touches the skin, this sense tells us its size, helps to tell its shape, and lets us know whether it is rough or smooth, soft or hard.

March (The Queen of Sheba) Gounod Saint-Saens wrote two symphonic poems based on episodes from the life of Hercules-' Hercules's Youth ' and ' Omphale's Spinning-Wheel '. The former describes the choice which was put before the hero in his adolescent days ; on the one hand idleness and soft pleasures, on the other struggles and trials of endurance, at the end of which there shone through the flames of a funeral pyre the reward of immortality. Hercules scorned the offer of dalliance, choosing the harder way ; even without the aid of words Saint-Saens's music leaves us in no doubt of his destiny.
On January 5 listeners were introduced to this delightful and imaginary music-hall, and watched, as it were, the performance at the second house. They will remember that Ralph Truman and Horace Percival sat in the stalls, and described the turns before they came on. So good was the show that they agreed before leaving that they would come again on January 27-tonight-the second house.
They will see, and listeners will hear: Bertha Willmott , singer of robust pantomime choruses ; Claude Hulbert and Enid Trevor , that happily married couple who quarrel only for the benefit of listeners ; Neil McKay , well-known Scottish comedian ; Ella Shields , creator of ' Burlington Bertie'; and, last but not least, ' Parade of Ragtime', a pot-pourri of broken rhythm, featuring Peter Bernard (original singer in this country of ' Alexander's Ragtime Band '), the Dalton Sisters (girls all three), the Three Admirals (all men), Arthur Sandford at the piano, and Reginald Foort at the BBC Theatre Organ.
Such is the Palace of Varieties, devised by Bryan Michie and presented by Ernest Longstaffe. John Weaver will conduct the BBC Variety Orchestra, seated in the imaginary orchestra-pit.

When the Croydon Philharmonic Society was founded in 1914 by Alan Kirby , its present conductor, it numbered sixty members. During the War its activities were suspended, but started again in 1919. Now it has one hundred and sixty members.
The Choir has specialised in Elgar's oratorios, and in 1933 Elgar conducted it at Croydon in a performance of The Apostles. In 1935 an Elgar Festival was organised and the profits were devoted to endowing a bed for musicians at the Croydon General Hospital. The Choir's last appearance in Queen's Hall was in 1935, when it gave a performance of Verdi's Requiem under Dr. Boult, and in March next Mr. Kirby will conduct a performance of The Apostles at Queen's Hall.
