Hungary, the land whose history is so rich in adventure and romance, still remains, even in these post-war days, one of the most picturesque countries in Europe. A Hungarian wedding is a ceremony full of music and colour, and Major Dudley Heathcote, who has lived for years in Central Europe, is well fitted to describe it to denizens in our drabber, if more prosperous, Western world.

IN the first of this series of talks on the Capitals of Europe, Mr. E. V. Lucas described Paris, and in the second Mr. Stephen Gwynn discoursed of Dublin. Mr. George Young knows his subject equally well. A diplomat by profession, he was in Berlin as correspondent to the Daily News from January to July, 1919—that eventful period just after the fall of the Hohenzollerns, when some of the most important happenings since the War were taking place.
