The defense here rested its case. Colonel

The Banda Itossa, which plays In this
city this afternoon and evening at the
Opera House, is a body of musicians
brought together in 1S83 at San Severo,
a town in southern Italy, distinguished
by that intensity of devotion to music |
which made the country the home of the
art for so many years and In two years*
time gave the first concert, March 14th, ,
n 1SS5, the birthday of King Humbert.
3 Later the direction was placed in the
n hands of Slgnor Eugenio Sorrentlno, of i
1 the ltoyal Conservatory of Naples, and
it was not long before the fame of the
a Banda Itossa was spread far beyond the
confines of San Severo, and when at
r the Columbus celebration in Genoa, In
d 1SUL\ sixty-four bands entered into a
competition for a gold medal and banner,
it was Banda Rossa that carried '
(j off the prizes. Since, the band has
II ! played during the season of 1836 In Ger,

- J and Italy has always been the land of
41 song, and with a leader who feels with
his men, yet makes their pulses keep
time with his own, they can till their
music with fire without destroying the ?

tjicse reasons the larger part of their
