THE series of readings from the Old Testament, in which so many of the finest passages from the greatest prose book in the English language have been recited week by week, has now closed.
It will be resumed in the autumn, and in the meantime its place will be taken on Sunday afternoons by a series of readings from those great works that can most truly be called the foundations of English poetry. The series will start today with the early period, including William Langland , the author of ' Piers Plowman,' and Geoffrey Chaucer , of the immortal ' Canterbury Tales.'

Dr. DUGALD CHRISTIE : ' Medical Work in Mukden'
S.B. from Edinburgh
T0 hold the Imperial Order of the Double
Dragon and the Order of the Precious Star is in itself an indication that the foreigner so honoured has done great service to the Chinese; but when one hears that Dr. Dugald Christie is the only British subject to whom, during his lifetime, a public memorial has ever been erected by the Chinese, one realizes that his work must have been of a truly exceptional character. In this afternoon's talk Dr. Christie, who was formerly Superintendent of the Mukden Medical Mission and Principal of Mukden Medical College, will recount some of the achievements of modern medical science in tho historic land of Manchuria.

Appeal on behalf of the Clinic for Rheumatic Diseases, by Sir Thomas HORDER.
RHEUMATISM is well known to be a widespread complaint, but probably few people realize that it costs the country two millions a year in sick Taenefit, and over three million weeks of work. At a recent meeting held under the auspices of the British Red Cross Society it was decided to start a campaign to establish special clinics for the treatment of rheumatism, the first in London, followed by others in the centres of other thickly populated areas. The cost of the first will be £40,000 ; when founded, it will be self-supporting, and E18,000 has already been received. It is for help towards raising the remaining £22,000 that Sir Thomas Horder is to appeal tonight.
Contributions should bo addressed to Sir
Arthur Stanley , Rheumatic Clinic Fund, [address removed].
