THERE is a little worldly good advice in the -L song which Momus sings, in Bach's jolly Cantata about the contest of song between Phoebus and Pan. Tho original words set by Bach have been replaced, in the new version, by a stanza which might be adopted by advertisers. It. begins : ' Oh, yes, just so, you must your trumpet blow,' and ends with the reflection This life's a motley show.'

Played by the LONDON RADIO
A DOMESTIC comedy of life in a small village, wherein the shrewd shopkeeper shows that the diplomacy which brought him commercial success, proves of little avail when applied to the gentler art of courtship.
Cast :
IN Ezekiel Megg 's sitting-room, a bare, cheerless apartment, giving an impression of extreme poverty, a very small fire is burning. At the back of the room, which is lighted by one candle, there is a glazed partition through which his shop can be seen. Meggs, a small, wizened man of about forty, is sitting at the table casting up figures in a ledger.
