Neither a a Salome a nor a Elektra a can claim to have excited such world Wido in Terest As does the forthcoming production of or. Strauss a new opera a Der Rose Kavalier the Rose Cavaliera the Dresden Royal opera House on the 26th of this month. The reason of this special excitement is not difficult to for the situation is analogous to that of sir a Kinard a Ilgars a name being found attached to one of or. George Edward est a productions. The composer himself is alive to the curiosity Slown Towai Xis his comic opera and has taken some pains to feed the to me by beeping All important information respecting the work. Thanks however the Public skiers Berlin an Ltd Paris before readers of hitherto a secret a features of the music would by impossible in a Short article enumerated much less illustrated the Many and varied characteristics that make it so unlike anything that Strauss has Ever done before. Nevertheless a a Salome a and a a Elektra a theft selves to say nothing of the great orchestral tone poems that stand to his name give ample proof that Strauss could be As a a popular a and captivating As Leo fall Lehar and Oscar Straus if to Willied. In a a Der Rose Kavalier he has wished and the few extracts printed in this column will show How thoroughly he has for once thrown aside the of tragedy. Though in a Light vein there is nothing trivial about Tho workmanship and it is said that the vocalists have never been treated so unkindly by Strauss before and the orchestra have a no less difficult task than that set them in his More serious works. As the Story was related in these columns by our Berlin correspondent a few Days ago it will Only be necessary to retell those incidents a at give Rise to the chief musical features. The spirit of the Waltz pervades almost the whole opera and by this Means the composer has avoided echoing the Mozart Ian feeling of the text for it is the Valse and not the minuet that stands for modern Vienna and the modern View of old Vienna.

Of course the Young people fall in love at first sight and sign Alise their Mutual love in a duet Fig. 3in which they give expression to their feelings. From the a Standard of an important St Haa been towards linking up our secondary schools with the sea University by Stein. The he mastered a Fotene at their re out meeting decided to accept the invitation of Mcgill University Montreal to conduct its Entrance Examina Tina in this country. The occasion for this action or the headmasters conference already reported in the a a Standard of Empire a is the recognition that numbers of our Publio school boys Are intending to spend their life in Canada and Are anxious to have the advantage of Canadian training at Tho their school Days rather than at the end of their University your partly to doubt because they can obtain University education at a much cheaper rate but chiefly because of the great value of training under local conditions and among Tho Fitt with whom they afterwards will Hove to work. A further advantage will accrue to our secondary schools in effecting such an arrangement now that the headmasters conference in concert with the incorporated headmasters have established a Public schools emigration league to facilitate the passing of the boys to their various vocations in the Oversea states and their satisfactory settlement under the auspices of the leagues organisation in different parts of the Empire. Tie league has Given a Good account of itself during the first year of its life. Its Sei vices at present have been called for mainly in connection with the placing of Public school boys with selected Farmers in Canada who after a year of training Are to pass a further course of one year at the local agricultural colleges after which time they should have acquired sufficient experience to enable them to Estah Lish themselves on to Ioir own account. There can be no question As to the usefulness of such an organisation which can Only increase with time. The Outlook for general business during 1911 in Western Canada is very Bright indeed. The further settlement of farm lands by in Cream emigration is a foregone conclusion the completion of railway extensions already staked out will distribute much More Money in the current year than was spent during 1910, and there is every Prospect that More building and More factories will result from the further prosecution of of Ojo native a torts by Western Ooma unities in advertising their resource and opportunities. No year Ever dawned on this Canadian Dominion says the Toronto a a Globe a with brighter prospects than those of civil and no year Ever brought larger Opp it yet unities to the people of any country. Men like Strath Cona whose Knowle Fig is of the fullest Are Eer in their enthusiasm and convinced in their Lope for Canadas development. Experts in finance and Commerce have no fears except Tho wholesome fears of and which Prosperity always begets in thoughtful minds.

Laseelles to portray the empires in pictorial and dramatic Effort and to Uio Succes that had attended his previous work. Or. Laseelles in reply said that at the coming festival of Emp he a Vidd idea would be Given not Only of great Britain but of her pos, acros8 Tho seas and the love of their inhabitants for the Mother country. Bishop Welldon on Empire. Bishop Welldon at the Royal institution last night spoke to a Large audience on his impressions of Tho British Empire gained during Many years of travel. In wandering about the Empire he had to said Learned Tho lesson that the first article of True Imperial policy was to knit the colonies to the Mother country by every a missile tie. If he Wero a statesman and he had no desire to be one laughter a he Woodd sum up his policy in two articles of Faith bind the colonies to the Mother country and the latter to them and then bring the Empire As a whole to hear upon the other nations of the world. In regard to India the policy should be to Leep order at All costs and then subject to that essential condition give the natives As Large a share As was possible in the conduct of the affairs of their country. But at the same time he Felt that no greater political or religious mistake could be made by the government of India than the enforcement of a Western secular education system. He believed in the British Empire because it stood for Freedom Justice Progress and True and pure religion. Read made farms in Rhodesia. The question of organised agricultural settlements in Rhodesia is on the eve of solution and certain preliminary arrange Niento have been completed ensuring the establishment of ready made Homes for european att tiers. It is understood that some of the principal landowning companies in Southern Rhodesia will of operate in the formation of a go neral farming and pastoral concern which will subdivide and prepare several million acres for immigrants.

Settlers Are to obtain special facilities in Aid of emigration from Europe each plot allotted to them is to be fenced the Gro Imd broken suitable housing Azoona Madation provided and but Scimeni native labour Stock and seeds will be available to cover the initial be of Farmers. London tube extensions. Sir e. Elgar a concerto. The conspicuous features of the concert Given at Queens Hall yesterday afternoon were the performances of Beethoven a and sir Edward Elgar s violin concertos by or. Kreisler and the Queens Hall or Diestra under the direction of sir Edward Elgar. In both cases or. Kreisler As is his wont played with that fiery strength and crystalline clearness of touch and tone which always reflects his masterly control in such an admirable manner. Although in interpreting Beethoven a Woric the conductor perhaps lingered a Little needlessly Over the larghetto movement yet the skill with which he kept his forces under restraint and thus acquired the subdued tone so essential in orchestral accompany ing was wholly pleasing. To his own concerto which followed sir Edward allowed himself More Freedom with the result that the Solo instrument did not always stand out with the same distinction As in the former work nor was the profusion of colouring with Wahidi the composer has so richly adorned his music As easily to be distinguished As it has been on other occasions. Nevertheless As regards the expressive Reading Given by or. Kreisler and the orchestra of the andante and the cadenza nothing More could have been desired the other numbers included Mosart s andante from cassation a bears a Lullaby a and Saint Saenso so a introduction and Rondo Capriccio my a for violin and orchestra. It is prop aed to extend the a a two Penny tube a from its present Terminis at Wood Lane Shepherd in a Bush to Ealing Broadway a distance of four and a half Miles in order Ito bring the great Western. Railway company a main Lino into direct communication with the Central London railway and the entire a a tube a system. A Bim will be into Parji meat during the coming session. The Cost of the Extension is to be borne by the great Weston Rai Hray company and when the Extension is it Xii Pilate main Laie great Western trains will Call at Ealing Broadway which will thus become an in por Cuit Exchange. Hie a two Penny tube Exten sgt no Noah the Bank to Liverpool Street will be completed Early next year and this will eventually bring the great Neatam i Ito touch with the great Eastern railway. The palladium. Large audiences continue to attend the palladium where this week a notable addition to the programme is Loie fullers a a Les Petite for the space of a Quarter of an hour twelve children execute an exquisitely Attr Ive dance to an unpublished Ballet by Mozart. It is the first time that children Hare appeared in London in spontaneous natural dances and the novel spectacle presented by the Little Queens made a great impression upon the houses yesterday. The Young artists who appeared to enjoy themselves equally with the spectators were recalled again and again. Or.

To the editor of the sir a the formation of an original kind of Sparrow club at Stockbridge Hampshire appears to have Arou cd a considerable amount of interest. The truth is that Farmers have had pretty Well enough of his depredations while the Public generally Are i la on the Side of the Bird Bat the damage which he Doss to crop no is not half realised.
