THE sight of an earwig usually inspires aversion tempered by fear, and its name is certainly against it from the start; but it possesses a large and very beautiful pair of wings, which it never seems to use, and various other redeeming qualities tvhich Mr. Fitch Daglish will describe in his talk this afternoon, in which he will deal also with some of the Myriapoda, or many-legged.

(Pianoforte)
DAVID WISE , TATE GILDER and GERALD DINGLEY
(With Pianoforte Accompaniment)
THE Movements of the Concerto are as follows :
FIRST MOVEMENT.-The interest of this lies in a happily bustling tune, taken up in alternation by the two Violin parts. Sometimes one Solo Violin starts a Tune which is then taken up (almost iti Fugue style) by the other.
Note especially the opening Tune; this is important. It often recurs, and may bo looked upon as the Main Tune of the Movement.
SECOND MOVEMENT.—This is a very expressive Movement, and has become famous. Wo have, in fact, a Violin Duet, with a quiet accompaniment.
THIRD MOVEMENT.—In spirit, style, and construction this is so like the First Movement as to call for little description.
The Solo Violins begin in imitation at a mere beat's distance, and keep up a vigorous and cheerful motion all through.
I sigh'd andpin'd ; There's nothing so fatal as woman; Fled is my love; 'Tis death alone can give me ease; I'll mount to yon blue cœlum ; I'll sail upon the dog-star; If thou wilt give me back my love.
