Then Immediately after being used the lnstruinent was placed under a cloth, and tbe llghts were turned on for a few moments to en able the critics to write down the votes. All the violins were played by two muslclans of high standing. nnd the composltions were wrltten especi? ally for the test. The two vlollnists tried to bring out the best in each violin, and the result. decided by tbe votes, was intercsting.
