EVERYONE has to think about rates at least twice a year, when he has to pay them.
But recently the almost universal rise in rates has induced people to think of them less charitably and considerably more often than before. It is obviously important that people should know what rates are, who pays them. who spends them, on what, and why. In her series of talks, arranged in conjunction with the National
Federation of Women's Institutes Mrs. Fisher will explain these different points, and in particular this afternoon she will point out what rates are, and how they differ from their almost equally unpleasing business partners, taxes.

Dear Everybody,
Yes, of course I shall be glad to see you at
Little Rhubarb Green on September 26, but you must excuse me if I am very busy when you arrive. I have already made arrangements for the redecoration of Folly Manor on new and startling lines, and the work is to begin on the 24th. Perhaps you may even be able to give me a hand. In any case, I hope you will mind the paint.
Sincerely yours,

FORESTRY is a science that long suffered
J- neglect in England, where deforestation was the rule. But its importance is now again fully recognized, and in this talk Sir Francis Acland (who, besides being a former Secretary to the Board of Agriculture, is a Forestry Commissioner) will describe what is being done to preserve Britain's wealth in wood and to restore something of what she has lost.
