The green-finches, too; they desert us when their domestic duties for the season are ended, and reappear in small flocks in the autumn. Where do these birds go in the interval? 'We know that many species seek a quiet retreat during the moult, but none require four or five months to re cover nlumaere.

Their Majesties the* King -and Queen saw their first talking picture last February when they visited the New Victoria Cinema, London, for a special Royal gala matinee of the Gaumont-British 'picture, 'The Good .Companions.' This picture is based on the world-famous J. B. Priestley novel of the same name, a novel which; both the King and Queen had read. The story is accredited as being probably the finest modern English story yet written, 'and the film version comes to His Majesty's Theatre next Saturday, when all our readers will have the oppox'tu nity of seeing the film that created such a good impiession of talking pictures on their Majesties.
