IT was Mr. Clifford Collinson , listeners will remember, who opened
. this romantic series of talks on buried treasure. Tonight he is to tell us the exciting story of tho treasure that lies buried on the Ladrono Islands—sometimes known as ' Tho Islands of Thieves' or ' Tho Islands of a Thousand Sails.' Secrecy, as we aU know, is a very proper attitude when buried treasure is under consideration, and wo are not going to spoil Mr. Collinson's story for him (or for you) by giving it away beforehand—except, perhaps, to say that the Ladrono Islands lie just north of the Equator, that. about a hundred years ago a British naval officer stole a Spanish treasure ship, that ho hid tho booty on the volcanic Pagan Island (one of tho Ladrone Group), and that he was caught by tho Spaniards. From all of which anyono can see that Mr. ColliMon has a very pretty talo up his sleeve for you.

Conducted by B. WALTON O'DONNELL
THE drama by the Norwegian poet Bjornson, Sigurd Jorsalfar, is a tale of Norway in the time of the Crusades. Sigurd and his brother Eystein, sons of the great Harald, are fierce rivals, each roigning over part of Norway. At the end of the play they become reconciled and dedicate themselves jointly to the service of their country.
Grieg wrote incidental music for the production of the play, afterwards recasting several of the movements in the form of a very effective Suite, second in popularity only to the two Suites from his music to Ibsen's Peer Gynt. The names of the three movements in this Selection make it clear to what part of the story they belong, and are vividly picturesque in the way we expect from Grieg.
