MR. SIMPSON, who is associated with the National Federation of Rambling Clubs, is an old hand at the game, and should be able to tell would-be ramblers about a great many rules and regulations with which they ought to be familiar if they do not want to land themselves, quite inadvertently, in awkward situations. His talk should also be of great interest to the general listener.

VON Suppe 's name is best remembered in this country by his Overture Poet and Peasant. It is one of the most popular light Overtures in existence. In the course of his busy life ho composed, according to one authority, 165 light pieces for the stage, as well as bigger and more important works, including two Grand Operas, a Mass, and a Requiem, and that list takes no account of such early work as another Mass which was performed when he was only fifteen.
A number of his light operas were given in London towards the end of last century, but it is now almost solely by such shorter pieces as this bright and melodious Overture that we know him.
