d'Annunzio, but cannot be indulged in without losing the extraordinary limpidity of the Italian style, a limpidity which in English can only be replaced by restrained dignity, so different is the genius of the two languages. This fact will be revealed to our competitors by further study, and if that is continued we anticipate that in a short time a similar competition would have a far more satisfactory

response.

To those who have searched in vain for the geographical location of the pleasant town of Assedio, we would commend the rules for the use of capitals in Italian writing. Many have been deluded by the resemblance between legionario and legionary, and have failed to realize that, in a tongue derived so nearly from the Latin, it is quite natural that the earlier and special use has been continued, whereas in English it has remained only as an exotic growth.

The mistake into which some of the writers have fallen, of changing the tense of the indirect paragraphs accompanying d'Annunzio's speech is singularly infelicitous. We hope that "Praha," in saying that the Romans held their councils in the Arena, has merely been the victim of a typewriting error, but when the same competitor refers to Nino Bixio as Ninus Bixius, we think it must have been from a confusion of thoughts attuned to the same era and an ignorance of the heroes of Garibaldi's Thousand. " Ebo," on the other hand, is commended for the trouble taken in adding the excellent notes in explanation of the orator's allusions.

[ocr errors]

We thank "Miltonensis for his kind and appreciative letter; we are glad to know that these competitions are a real help to both students and teachers. The poor response to the August Italian Competition will explain to him why we so rarely set passages in the languages less usually studied in this country.

A Prize of Two Guineas is offered for a translation into English verse of the following poem by Francis Jammes :

LA SALLE À MANGER.

Il y a une armoire à peine luisante

qui a entendu les voix de mes grand'tantes, qui a entendu la voix de mon grand père, qui a entendu la voix de mon père.

A ces souvenirs l'armoire est fidèle.

On a tort de croire qu'elle ne sait que se taire, car je cause avec elle.

Il y a aussi un coucou en bois.

Je ne sais pourquoi il n'a plus de voix. Je ne veux pas le lui demander. Peut-être bien qu'elle est cassée, la voix qui était dans son ressort, tout bonnement comme celle des morts.

Il y a aussi un vieux buffet

qui sent la cire, la confiture,

la viande, le pain et les poires mûres. C'est un serviteur fidèle qui sait

qu'il ne doit rien nous voler.

Il est venu chez moi bien des hommes et des femmes qui n'ont pas cru à ces petites âmes.

Et je souris que l'on me pense seul vivant quand un visiteur me dit en entrant:

-comment allez-vous, monsieur Jammes ?

Initials, or a nom de guerre, must be adopted by ALL competitors, but the prize-winners, and the competitors awarded the second place, will be required to send real names for publication if necessary.

No competitor will be awarded a prize more than ONCE during a given year, though the name of the competitor gaining first place will be published each month.

All entries must reach the Office by the first post on September 13, addressed PRIZE EDITOR," The Journal of Education and School World, 3 Ludgate Broadway, London, E.C. 4.
