I Short Giografiny cf the World's
Among those remarkably gifted

who died at Nice on May '27, 18 10,
holds a foremost place in history.

Fiiblnne musical trift, whs almost

While Nicole had the best violin
teacher to be found in Italy, his
skill was duo to his own genius. One

they conld teach him nothing, and

At nine years ho wrote n ponnta
and nt n concert made the audience
fairly wild with enthusiasm over his
laving. At thirteen ho itarted on
his first professional tour and in tho
following four years was pretty
nearly ruined. Money poured into
his hands, and ho learned to gam
ble. When he was seventeen there
eame a day when he had lost every
thing but his Stradivanus Tiolin
and 3 francs. lie played with the
ran'es nnd won a hundred. Then ho
decided never again to gamble, and
ho kept his word.
This life of constant excitement
and excess had ruined his health
and nerves. A wealthy titled wom
an took him into her favor and kept
him for three years on an estate fIio
had in Tuscanv. She would not al

better enjoyed the guitar.
In the (linet, simple life of the

well, and when ho was twenty be
went bad; to (lenoa and began bis
real rr.isieal life. The next year he
miido his second professional tour,
and this ended in his being made di
rector of music at the court or tho
Princess Klizu I'.acciochi. sister of
Napoleon Iionaparte, at I.tieca.
In person I'aganini was peculiar.
lie was exceedingly thin and had a
strange, awkward walk. His face
was long, his eyes deep and dark,
and he wore his hair long, almost to
He was thirty when he left tho
ruscan court, and from that time
be kept free from all such obliga
tions. He plaved when and where
he bad a fancy to appear, and all
Europe was at his feet.

ties took him to Germany, France
and England he made bitter com
nlaints in reirard to climate and
methods of living. In Italy any
accommodation suited him. His
health U'gan to fail seriously after

success in all the great cities he re
turned to Italy and spent some
years in the enjoyment of several
estates he had bought, for he was
now very rich.
In the municipal building at
Genoa is carefully preserved Paga

Mrs. P. with a lady friend whose
abilities as a scandal monger and

Few people have any idea of the
amount of labor expended in the

cowhide being too thick for tho reg

The "split" hide is well softened
with tubbin and then passed to the
cutter, who cuts out the various
sections, which, sewed together,
make a perfectly round ball. The
bladder is made of Para rubber.
This is inflated by machinery, and
the ball is then laced up. Finally
it passes through tho hands of the
shaper, who pats down any inequali
