VERDI'S OWN MEMORIAL. The British Consul at Milan states that the famous composer Verdi at the time of bis death, which occurred there last January, had all but completed a large and handsome building, situated on the out- skirts of the city, destined to receive gratuitouly 100 decayed musical artistes, 60 males and 40 females. When quite finished and fitted up, the building will have cost about E18,000, and the founder has pro- vided an endowment of E4000 a year to keep it up. The cost of maintenance is calculated at £40 per inmate. The age for admission is fixed at 65, and the institution is to be called The House of Rest for Musicians."
