Jllstory Society of Delaware front Friends'
School to the old pumping station at CoM
Spring Park will be begun. Shortly there

the Water Commissioners in granting the
society the use of the building that the

Only those who know the value of the
collection can appreciate the action of the
Hoard of Water Commissioners and the
Willingness of the Natural History Society

years, contributions having been sent by
the foremost scientific men of the State,

those most Interested In the society and
other men of his standing have given It
the high status It now enjoys not only

It is the purpose of the society to engage
an attendant for the building and to take
the proper safeguards for the care of the
collection. The proximity of the pumping
station to the High School will probab y

tion was made sometime ago of the re

of Water Commissioners.
OF ITALIAN OPERA
i lLEOHCAVALLÖI u
llugglero Leoncavallo, the famous
Composer, whose opera, "I Pagllaccl,"
ha« been a favorite with music lovers
since its first presentation in 1*92. was
born in Naples, March 8, 1858. X.eon
cavallo ranks with Puccini and Mas
eagni as a master of the modren Itai
lan school of music, although, accord
ing to some critics, tils work gives
evidence of German Influence. Besides
•T Pagilacci," his other operas, especi
ally "La Boheme" and "Zaza," have
been well received. In 1906 Leoncavallo
vtelted America and conducted per
formances of some of his own works.
