In Science, Frank Delia Torre an
nounces his rediscovery of tho famous
Venetlnn varnish, which has been the
despair of violin makers for nearly
200 years. Shortly after the dlscov
ory of America tho gondolas of Ven
ice were regularly conted with n trans
parent, lustrous, orange-red varnish.
This flamo colored material made
everything beautiful upon which It was
painted. After tho Venetian city fath
ers decreed that all gondolas must bo
black tho wonderful varnish was turn
ed over to the violin makers. Somo
Italian furnlturo of the seventonnth
century still extant Is conted with It.
When the violin makers had used nn
the supply on tho Inst Cremonns, no
more wns to l had. Investigation
led Mr. Torre to concludo that tho raw
materials of this varnish must havo
come from Africa, and he believes that
ho has at Inst found a gum varnish
ldentlcnl with that used by tho Cro-
mona makers. It looks llko tho old
varnish nnd seems to have tho same
wonderful effect on violins covered by
it.
