N° one is better qualified to discuss the subject of family allowances than
Miss Eleanor Hathbone , whoso recent book, ' Tho Disinherited Family,' did so much to bring the question before the public. To base wages on a supposed family of man, wife and threo children means, on Miss Rathbone's showing, that a family wage ia going to many wage-earners with no family obligations, and that those with large families get too little for their needs. Professor MacGregor will discuss tho pros and cons of this problem with Miss Rathbouo.

Louis PECSKAI (Violin)
Conducted by B. WALTON O'DONNELL ,
THE Overture begins with the oliin notes of Oberon's horn, twice repeated,with a soft fairylike theme on the strings responding to it. All the first section is fairy music of the daintiest order, and then, with a sudden crash, we are transported to the rush of the mortal world. The first part of the quick section which follows comes to an end with an echo of the horn, and a reminder of the fairy music, and then there is a very lively theme played first by clarinet and afterwards by violins. The next important tune is that of the great air sung by the heroine Rezial, telling of her love for the knight Sir Huon, and another vigorous passage suggests the chivalry and glittering pomp of the Court of Charlemagne,
