Opera Dating From 1600.
"Eurydire" was the first Italian opera
ever performed In public, and the
work excited an extraordinary amount'
of attention. The score was first published
in Florence In 1600 and was
dedicated to Marie de Medici, and it
was printed in lflOS In Venire, a copy
of the latter being well preserved in
the library of the British museum.
Both Legs Guilty.
Charles had formed the habit of running
off to the neighbors and even to
the nearby stores. As a punishment
for this his mother one day tied him to
the library table, lying one end of the
rope to his leg. the other to the table.
Watching the proceeding with Interest,
he remarked: "Tie th? nover leg, too,
ninmniB. they hof runiied away."

The name North river was given to
the Hudson in contradistinction to the
Delaware, that was the south boundary
of the Dutch colony, regardless of their
positions toward the cities of New
York and Philadelphia?which, asj
"cities." were then hnhes In arms.
