Millions Spent on Music.
If expenditure of money Is any test,
America can certainly claim the credit
of being a musical country. Accord-
ing to an estimate compiled some time
ago by an expert, the United States
spends no less than £120,000,000
music every year. This Is three times
as much ns the same country spends
on Its army and navy; while "inuslcul
Germany," it is pointed out, spends ten
times as much on its army and navy
as on Its music.
In the American total, church music
accounts for 210,000,000 a year. The
sale of pianos reaches £37,000,000, of
organs £2,000,000, of gramophones and
records £18,000,000, and of sheet mush
and music books £2,100,000.
