An Unique Annual Concert Held In
Every midsummer day a unique con
cert is given In Copenhagen, Denmark,
such as the whole world cannot show
the like of. There are kept in Copen
hagen museum a number of ancient
Scandinavian horns, more than 3,000
years old, called "Lauren." Of this
collection 14 aro in good condition.
They have an elegant shape, and tho
flat metal plates at the mouthpiece
show good technical perfection and a
dcvcloped taste for art They are ot
different pieces fitted together. They
were found buried in moorland, and
their good preservation- is believed to
bo due to the turfy water. They are
of very thin metal and generally seven
feet long. They were always found
in pairs, the one in tunc with tho
other. A few years ago it was found
out by Dr. Hammcrich that they could
still be blown or played upon. Their
tones resemble those of the tenor horn,
and they have a soft but powerful
sound. Some aro tuned in C and K
sharp, others in D, E or G, and these
tones form an accord, but no "scala."
The midsummer concrt is held as fol
lows: On d balcony in the court of the
princely palace in which is kept tho
northern museum two members of the
royal "Capella" blow tunes on two ot
these primeval horns. An enormous
crowd tills tho court, the streets, tho
marble bridge and the neighboring
square, as far as it is possible to hear
the sounds. Music.

"One of the most amusing incidents
of travel that I know," said the trav
eler sitting on the piazza of the Sum
mer hotel, "occurred to a man I used
to know in New Jersey. He was a
minister named Harry. He is not liv
ing now. Ho was makinr a tour
abroad, and his knowledge of any
language besides his own was limited.
On one occasion, leaving his hotel in
Paris for a ramble alone, ho framed
for himself a little sentence in French
which would enable him to get back
to his hotel in case lie should be losu
It was school French, but he had no
doubt it would answer the purpose.
Naturally he did lose himself, and
brought his little sentence of inquiry
to the foro for use. He thought, how
ever, that it would be well to select a.
man who appeared to be endoned.
with some patience and amiability to
try his French upon. He waited some
time, selected his man, and propounded.
to him his problem. The stranger
looked at him a moment Then he
clapped him on the shoulder. "Harry,
old boy," he said, "you don't talk
French a bit better than you did at
college 12 years ago." X. Y. Times.

An extraordinary btory is current in
London concerning Sir Edmund Ver

from parliament dismissed from the
royal navy, in which he held the rank
of post captain, and sentenced to a
year's imprisonment with hard labor
for a particularly gross offense in con
nection with tho abduction of a young
girl. Sir Edmund, who is regarded by
his friends and relatives as having a
screw loose In his head, has built for
himself a minlatuve prison with cells,
exercise grounds, and even a treadmill,
in the park of ids county seat, Claydon
park, and every dav ho spends an hour
or so working the treadmill or nicking

His people havo been unable until now
to ascertain whether he does this as a
species of self-imposed penance or
whether it is merely for the sake of
amusement Sir Edmund. I may add,
