There are two Christmas plays for children which are staged with unfailing regularity every Christmas, and have been for some years-Peter Pan and Where the Rainbow Ends. Some of the success, at least of the latter play, is due to the very charming music which Roger Quilter wrote for it and which, in the form of a suite, is well-known on the concert platform. The titles of the excerpts from the incidental music from which this suite is taken show pretty well what kind of play it is, such as ' Rainbow Land ', ' 'Will o' the Wisp ', ' Fairy Frolic", and ' Goblin Forest
Quilter combines with his own special talent a gift of writing for children in a manner that they themselves understand and find particularly pleasing. His very popular ' Children's Overture ', which is full of tunes that appeal to children, testifies to this gift.

An Appeal on behalf of SCOTLAND'S GARDEN SCHEME organised by the Queen's Institute of District Nursing, Scottish Branch, in aid of District Nursing in Scotland
By The Countess of MINTO
In the spring of 1931 it was decided to follow the example of England, Wales, and Ireland and inaugurate a Gardens Scheme for Scotland. In response to the efforts of the organisers, the Scottish Gardens Scheme has been taken up with great enthusiasm. Each year between 500 and 600 owners open their gardens to the public on the payment of an admission charge of 6d. or is., with the result that in each of the past three years the gross proceeds have amounted to over £5,000.
Among the gardens which the public may visit are those of His Majesty the King at Balmoral Castle, which are opened on two days in each week for several months every season. The proceeds are divided between the Queen's Institute and District Nursing Services in the Counties. The Headquarters' share of this money is again subdivided between the pension fund for Scottish Queen's Nurses and the General Funds of the Queen's Institute which provides their training. The Scheme is operated in the offices of the Queen's Institute in Edinburgh, but the details of the organisation in each county are carried out by a County Organiser, assisted in many cases by a Treasurer and a small Committee.
