' Four Views ' —
The Rev. Canon C. L. Broun
This is the second of a series of four talks on an event that had profound and lasting repercussions on Scottish ecclesiastical and political history. The first speaker approached his subject from the point of view of the theological historian. Today the Rev. Canon Broun of St. Mary's Cathedral, Edinburgh, will discuss the Covenant as a member of the Episcopal Church.

An old woman looks back
More memories of a Ferm Deemie
Of this series Edith Anne Robert son writes: ' By a kitchen fireside I heard the beginnings of these old tales and gathered them together as best I could, in the hope that they might hold some echoes of a fast fading dialect and a fast fading condition of life.'
The original teller of the stories is an old lady who entered farm service at eleven years of age, and has preserved in her retentive mind a vivid gallery of pictures of the people and scenes of long ago. The general title of the series is taken from a phrase that occurred in the very first story of all.
Mrs. Robertson, who is the wife
. of Professor J. A. Robertson of Aberdeen, is already well known as the authoress of a life of St. Francis Xavier and of several volumes of poetry.
A ' Ferm Deemie ' is a serving girl (literally ' little dame ') of a farm. The roughness of the work that she had to do in all weathers would appal some girls of today, yet life had its joys as well as its sorrows, and it certainly did not fail to develop the character as well as the muscles.

An appeal on behalf of THE WESTERN INFIRMARY OF
GLASGOW by Sir GEORGE MITCHELL , LL.D.
The Western Infirmary of Glasgow treats not only thousands of patients from Glasgow and district, but affords ready and willing aid to patients from all parts of Scotland, including the Highlands and Islands.
Last year 13,465 indoor and 52,447 outdoor patients were treated. The expenditure on treatment was £131,931 and exceeded the total income by £22,510.
Naturally, those concerned are looking anxiously at the position, not only because of the deficit, but because funds are urgently required to meet heavy capital expenditure.
Contributions will be gratefully acknowledged, and should be addressed to [address removed].
