NOT PARTICULAR TO A SHADE. -Fishmonger: "Oysters, sir? Well, they're rather out," you see; unless you like blue points? "—Customer: Blue or green, It's all one to me. I'm colour blind !"—Funny Folks. GOOD OLD AGE,-At Lerwick, last week, the deaths were recorded of three very old women, at the ages of 94, 99, and 100. The centenarian was Mrs. Coutts, of Arcus, who was born in Shetland, and came to the town of Lerwick when she was only two years old. Although feeble in body of late years, her mental faculties kept wonderfully clear to the end.. THE VIOLIN.-Of all musical instruments, the violin is the most enduring. Pianos wear out, wind instru- ments get battered and old fashioned, the pipes of organs become scattered and the original construction is lost sight of, all kinds of novelties are introduced into flutes, but the sturdy violin stands on its own merits. Age and use only improve it, and, instead of new ones commanding the highest prices, as in the case with other instruments, it is the violins of the few Italians makers of the last three centuries that command fabulous sums. It is impossible to handle an old violin without a feeling of veneration, when i one reflects on the number of people who have pro- bably played on it, the weary hours it has beguiled, ( the source of enjoyment it has been, and how well it ] has been loved. <
