A ESTHETIC apprecifition is partly natural and partly acquired, and in this course Miss Berry will help to train up natural artistic taste by describing and explaining good pictures of things familiar to all children-animals and birds. In the last three talks of the term she will deal with famous paintings of St. George and the Dragon-one of the most generously-painted subjects in classical art.

THIS evening's talk is the first of a series to be given by Dr. Waterhouse, who is Lecturer in Psychology and the Philosophy of Religion at the Wesleyan College, Richmond. He is also a member of the Senate of London University. Tonight he will discuss the true definition of religion ; the inferences that can be drawn from its most primitive forms ; the question whether religion was one of the original natural instincts of mankind, and the fascinating differences between early religions and the magic-tradition common among all primitive peoples.
