From an Indian Lodge (from Op.
51) ; Hungarian (from Op. 39); From a Log Cabin (from Op. 62) ; Polonaise (Op. 46, No. 12)
THE first piece is one of the Wood-land Sketches. MacDowell was interested in the music of tho
American Indians, and in this piece we may find a suggestion of one of their songs, punctuated by drum beats.
The Hungarian piece is one of t welve Studies from which we heard another example on Tuesday (the Shadow Dance). Tonight's study is for dash, speed, and ' virtuoso playing.'
In the lines prefixed to the third piece MacDowell describes the log cabin in the woods where he loved to compose :—
A house of dreams untold,
It looks out over the whispering tree-tops And faces the setting sun.
The Polonaise, the last of Twelve Virtuoso
Studies, is a stirring piece of good salon music, obviously influenced by Chopin.

The first day's play in the SURREY versus HAMPSHIRE Match at the Oval, described by Mr. P. F. WARNER
THE first cricket match of the season began at the Oval to-day, when Surrey met
Hampshire in the County Championship. The opening of the season at the Oval is always an event for Surrey's supporters, whose number is legion and whose enthusiasm is unbounded, and for London's cricket fans generally. This evening all of them who could not enjoy the match from under the shadow of the historic gas-works will be able to hear it described by one of the most famous of living cricketers, who is also one of the most expert critics of the game. Mr.
P. F. Warner's playing career ended only a few years ago. and in the course of it he won a world-wide reputation as a batsman and captain. Besides captaining Middlesex for many years, he led M.C.C. teams in South Africa and in Australia, where his teams won the Ashes in 1903-4 and 1911-12.
