CINQUE VALLES RETIREMENT
There has just taken place at Melbourne an event of interest to lovers of entertainment. all over the world—the retirement of Paul Oinquevalh from the stage. This king of jugglers save that his farewell performance' in Melbourne was the last that he will give. Ho admits to a feeling of- much regret. ‘T am beginning to realise now,” said he on the night of his last turn, “ that I am leaving ray two best friends—my work and my audience. But it is better that I should leave them than that they should leave me.” Cinquevalli tells us* that he started the showman's life as a gymnast. At St. Petersburg (we have to say Petrcgrad now) he fell 80ft through another man missing his grip, and was for nine months in the hospital until all sorts of bones broken. Then he became a juggler. Everybody knows how great he became as juggler. He has started for London, but says it is very likely that he will come back to settle down in Australia. Cinquevalli has looked after his earnings as well as his health.
