Die Nebensonnen. (The Mock Suns.) He sees in the heavens a mirage-three suns where one should be. He once had three suns of hope, but now two are gone. Surely, it would be better if the last were to expire.

Among the composers who contributed to the heritage of dance music which is still held in affectionate regard, long after the dances for which they were composed have passed out of fashion, Johann Strauss holds undoubtedly the highest place.
It was one of his waltzes, probably the best known and best loved of them all, to which Mr.
