PRINCE BISMARCK ON MUSIC. Bismarck confesses that he has neither an ear nor a sense of music. He never could learn the piano like his schoolmates, and as for reading music, the effort generally resulted in tears. He learnt the Greek alphabet in half an hour but when it came to crochets and quavers, minims and semi-breves,his naturally good memory failed him, and he found it impossible to carry the dis- tinctions in his head. A good Barbary organ is his favourite instrument as for concerts or operas, they were always a weariness of the flesh to him.
