Is Anthropology Worth While ?
MR. TORDAY has studied the fascinating subject of anthropology-fascinating becauseit does so much to throw light on the dark places in our knowledge of our own kind-in the most interesting way. He has lived for years in the African Congo, observing mankind in the raw, and the results of his observations have been embodied in his ' Causeries Congolaises,' and many other valuable books.

Interpreted by SOLOMON Fourth Ballad
IN this, the last of the 'Ballads,' the feeling of listening to a romantic tale is overborne by the piece's melancholy. One might conceive it as a brooding upon the past. with a note of tenderness creeping in after the first wistful thought has been expressed. Its passionate close is extremely characteristic of Chopin.
