The Baireuth Festival.
The Baireuth Festival theater was
' the dream of Richard Wagner's life.
That he was able to carry it to fulfill
ment was largely the result of the co
! operation and financial aid given by
the unfortunate King Ludwig 11. of
Bavaria. Wagner first conceived the
idea of his Festival theater in 1858,
but the foundation stone was not laid
at Beireuth until May 22, 1572. The
Festival theater was opened with the
Ring cycle in 1576. The festival then
! lasted from the 13th to the 17th of
■ August. Since the first performance
: of "Parsifal" in ISS2 there has been a
music festival at Beireuth almost every
year—New York Times.
Two of our presidents have delivered
farewell addresses. Under date of
Sept. 17, *1796, Washington issued a

was chiefly the work of Washington

were taken from a draft prepared by
Madison at Washington's request when
the latter had expected to retire at the
end of his first term. A farewell ad
dress was also issued, by President An
drew Jackson on March 3, 1537, the
last day of his official life.
