The big tent kept the people dry and the rain slid off its top and sides Jike water on a duck's back. The only change in the pvoigram was the substitution of Haiold Febei- of the English Navy League in place of Perey Alien. The iatter's slides had not arrived in this country and Mr. Febei- t'ook his place. The musical nait of the proeram by the three Italians styled tfte Vene- ! tion Serenaders greatly pleased the large apudience.

The Italian melodies were given with i niuch feeling and expression. Mr. Febei- is an Englishman who, a;; a representative of the Navy Lea- gue did much investigating for his I gvt?vmft beth -befoi and during. the war. He was in Berlin when war ' was declared and had been warned; out of Helgoland because the Ger mans suspected he was getting infor mation about that-hoavily-fortified is land. He said he had chosen as his subject "The Secrets of the Sea." and while he was not allowed to teli Ihem ali thére were some things he could talk about now that the oreat war was over. Mr. Febei- then showed an inter csting collection of sea scenes, in cluding battleships, submarinos, dir- igibles, destroyers and Atlantic hn- ers. As the views were thrown on J the screen Mr. Feber described the. subjects, incidentally paying high tributesi to the various branches of the naval service ffom the stoker up to the Admiral. The speaker showed how the British naw played an im portant part in winning the war, backed up bv the other ships of the Allies, and hqw the German fleet, one of the most powerful in the world, was kept away from the English coast and kept bottled up on the German coast.
