Special uincuntieineiit. bince Union City is not to be fa vored with a Lyceum Course this winter, the music lovers of this city and neighboring cities will doubtless desire to take advantage of an ap- portunity which is very rare. Skovgaard, the Danish violinist, will appear at the High School Audi torlum on January 25, rendering selections from the old masters Skovgaard's fame extends throughout Europe as well as America and he has appeared at Copenhagen, Berlin and Christiana. Among those who have enjoyed his music are King Christian of Denmark, King Oscar of Sweden and King Hakon of Norway. The history of the violin which Mr. Skovgaard plays is very interest ing. He purchased it from a London dealer for $13,000.00. Upon it is, plainly lettered: "Antonius Stradi- varius, Anno 1712." The dealer had bought it from a Spanish museum j where it had remained for genera tions untouched. With the instru ment went the romantic tale of its origin how in Cremona, through love of one of Stradivarius' best pu pils for a girl violinist, an instrument that the maker particularly prized had been stolen for the girl. When it was returned to its maker he re fused ever to part with it, and it wa3 not until after his death that his son sold it to a collector, who, in his turn, sold it to the Spanish museum, where the instrument descended from father to son in many generations. Those who fail to hear this re markable violinist will doubtless re gret their unwise decision. , "Opportunity knocks but once at each man's door."
