French Composer,
is Dead in Algiers
Author of "Proserpine"' and
Other Musieal Successes
Could Play Piano With
Skill at the Age of Five
ALGIERS, Africa, Dec. 1? (By The
Associated Press). ?- Camille Saint
'7!"M, the French composer, died here
suddenly this morn nig.
Of Camille Saint-Snens tha famous
Wagner said sume forty years apro:
"Ho la the greatest living French com?
poser." Ho was the man of whom
Liszt also once said: "I and Saint
saena are the only two men left in
Europe who know how to play the
piano." Saint-Saena was everywhero
icknowledged as one of the greatest
musician? of his time and his career,
overlapped three generations of music
Making his premier public appear?
ance as a pianist in Paris two years
before the French Revolution of 1848,
he lived to experience the tragedies
of the grout European war, into which
his country was plunged in 1914, an.!.
though then eighty, he was still in
lession of Buch vigorous energy
that he undertook a mission ,ac o i
the seas as the Kreuch governmei
representative at. the Panama-Pacific
Exposition in San Francisco in 1915,
and also to deliver a scries of lectures
in America as the "First Delegate to
the Franco-American Commission for
the Devalopment of Political, Economie,
Literary and Artistic Relations."
The early life of the great composer
vas that ?.^' a "wonder-child." Born :
October 8, 1835, in Paris, it is said he
aus hardly out of his nurse's arms be?
fore he developed a passionate interest
in sounds. At two and a half years he
played the piano; he played with taste
and skill at five. He studied under Be
: and Halevy, devoting himself to
piano, organ and theory to such pur?
pose that he became a prize winner in
the Conservatoire.
Bis ?est. symphony was written and
performed when he was seventeen wit]
success by the Soci?t? de Sainte Cecilie,
lie became organist of the Church of -
St, Merri in 1853, and organist of the
Madeleine in 18.r>8. He did some teach ?
ing also, but gave most of his time to
his beloved occupation of compoainc-.
His facility in that direction was the
; of many stories. There are few .
erasures on his manuscripts. He pur
ideas down rapidly on paper, chatting
sometimes the while, and he needed no
piano t.) assist him. He wrote his
opera, "Prosperine," without having an
instrument in reach.
M. Saint-Saens's most celebrated
musieal compositions are, with the date
of their publications: "Les Noces .1='
Prom?thee," 1867; "La Princesse
Jaune," 1872; "Le Timbre d'Ardent,''
1877; "Samson et Delila," 1877;
"Etienne Mercel," 1879; "Rouet
d'Omphale," "Dan?e- Macabre," Jeun?
esse d'Hercule," .Symphonies en nii, en
la, et en ut, "Henry VIII," 1883;
"Ascanio," 1890; "Phryne," 1893;
'Ch?urs d'Antigone," 1893; "Javotte,"
L896; "Dejanire," 1898; "Les Barbi ces,"
1901; "Parysatis," 1902; "Helene,"
1903; "L'Ancestre," 1906, and many
concertos, sonatas and quintets,
It was on his visit here in 1906 that
Saint-baens announced that he would
quit the concert stage, after sixty
years of hard work.

The North American Review: "A wholesome astringent quality
in these memoirs, an absence of the usuai sentiment, a complete
freedom from solemnity of any kind, and with all these
admirable traits a genuine untheoretic appreciation of sound
character and of good work, make the book one of those few
valuable contributions which the real man of the world occa?
sionally makes to popular education . . . Mr. Ford's virile
and entertaining book is not only a thing of delight for tlit old
and middle-aged, but a work of edification for the young."
Char Ses Wiilis Thompson writes: "Mr. Ford is not classifiable
. . . He has known all actors, authors, politicians, soldiers.,
prize fighters, mechanicians of thought. He has studied them as
impartially as Balzac . . . Out of Torty-cdd' years of this
he has woven an engrossing book of reminiscences the lucidest
sharpest that has come out in many a day."?Philadelphia Public
The Chicago Trlbimc: "The kind (of book) you take up idly at
midnight and the next thing you know the clock is striking four."
Hey wood Broun says: "It contains as much interesting reminis?
cence of old New York as 'The Age of Innocence,' 'Not So L.;ng
Ago' and 'Little Old New York' combined."
Erander Matthews: "Jim Ford knows more sides of this many
