I Violins and their Maker.
I ij (Continued from pego 5)
I i hlbltod In tho city of Genoa, and tho
lf equally Tvc'll known "King Joseph.''
" I Guarnerlua sought and obtained a
I tono differing from thai of any of his
I 'prwlecessors, partaking of tho quail
I t'tles of both Stradlvarius and Magglnl,
I ' having tho rich, brilliant, telling prop
I crtlcs of tho ono and tho plaintive,
I melancholy tones of tho other. Tho
I violins of Joseph Guarnerius have al
I ways been In high favor among con-
cert players; Faganini, VIeuxtemps,
B Leonard and many others of tho past,
H as well as Wilhclmj, Ysaye, Kubellk,
I Sltt and Herman of tho present day.
I The violin with tho magic legend or
M -label, reading: "Joseph Guarnerius,
H fecit Cromonao anno 1737," is proba
I bly tho most widely known of all tho
H Violins made in Cremona. It Is known
H hs tho "King Joseph." Its fame rests
H pn its remarkable tone, beauty of
H, Wood; Yarnlsh and workmanship, and
Hj on its perfect state of preservation, n
H Is without' doubt the best specimen of
H tho work of Joseph Guarnerius in ex
R Istencc. It has maintained its proud
Hi position as "King" from tho time it
J was brought from Italy Into England'
H by tho ominont collector, Mr. James
H Godjng, of London, over half a century
J ago. It was mado when Guarnerius
H was at his best, and without question
H ho regarded it as his chef-d'oeuvre,
f When ono compares it with other vio
J illns of his mako, and goes into the
J (details of tone, workmanship and var
BJI 'nlsh, only then can ho realize how lm
J measurably superior it is in every
HJ way. The tono is of tho most com
HJ manding character, the Guarnerius
HJ tono timbre being doubly pronounced,
HJ and for richness, solidity and power li
HJ' 'is undoubtedly, as for years It has
HJ' been regarded, tho king of all Guarno
HJ' Hub violins. Its form and coloring are
HJ perfect, tho graining of the wood tho
HJ' clioice of a wholo forest, and its var
HJj nlsh the crowning triumph of its male
HJ er's art. This king of Instruments is
HJj now ownod-by Mr. H. o. Havemoyer,
HJ- of Now York, and tho price paid was
HJ twelve thousand dollars.
HJ1 A fine- violin Is an expensive luxury.
HJ1 So much respect does a truo artist pay
Hjl to a master maker that he feels ho
HJ must bo able to "play up" to tho de-
HJ 'manda of thd Instrument before he
HJ' would presume to think of having It
HJ for his very own. Thero is a "soul"
HJ hidden in every violin made by tho old
HJ Cremoneso master hands, and every
HJ artist knows ho must bo able to draw
HJ that soul out of It, or tho violin cannot
HJ by any artistic right bejong to him.

HJ The Unselfish Woman.
HJ When all accounts are neatly bal-
HJ anced and the book about to be closed
HJ what will be tho standing of the un-
HJ selfish womannot tho unselfish worn-
HJi an ot'small letters, but tho capitalized
HH one Js led to wonder if, after all, tho
Hfl crown of glory which she confidently
HI' expects ' 'will be adjusted upon her
HH locks. One wonders if when unselfish
H mothers sit up at night training their
HI daughters in ways of vanity and use-
HI '-lossness by sewing wearily upon
HI things the girls should sew for them-
HH "selves. Ono wonders if when unsel-
HH fish wives trot patiently about plck-
HH lng up after careless husbands. Ono
HH wonders It when unselfish sweethearts
HH first tolerate tho neglect or Indlffer-
HH enco of over-sure lovers, when unsel-
HH fish friends train their acquaintances
HH Into expecting fag sorvlce from all
HH the world. Unselfishness is a virtue,
HH but a dangerous one to cultivate
HJ among persons to take favors as their
HH ducp, and to regard kindness as noth-
HJ Hug out of the ordinary. Exchange.
