THE author of this talk has every qualification J- for speaking on such a subject, as ho is himself leaving England within a few days to become Professor of English Literature at Singapore. He was previously Warden of Chancellor's Hall, Edgbaston, and during that period he became well known to the Birmingham listening public, particularly for his sporting narratives.

IN his concluding talk, Professor Swinnerton will deal with the great lesson of evolution as study of the fossils reveals it. As the few notes of a piano suffice to produce endless variety in music, so tho few threads of serial change that the parts of an animal's body represent suffice to produce the ever-changing panorama of animal life.

HERMAN MELVILLE'S novel, which Mr.
Wilkinson will describe in the last of his series of talks, was published in 1851, but it is only within the last six years that it has become, recognized to be not merely a vivid narrative of whaling, but one of the great stories of the English language, and a supreme epic of the sea.
