DR. HANS VON BULOW. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News and Musical Times — 2 September 1889
DR. HANS VON BULOW. Hans von Btilow, one of tho most distin guished among contemporary musicians, was born 8th January, 1830, at Dresden. Ho studied under Wieck (the father of Madame Schumann), lSbormeiu, Hanptmann and subse quently Wagner and Liszt. It was as a pianist that ho first bocaine known to fame. His ox temivordpertoire includes music of all stylos and schools, and as a performer ho is almost un rivalled, more especially in classical composi tions. He possessos tho most astonishing memory, playing everything, even to tho longest concertos and sonatas without book. As a conduotor, Dr.' Hans von Billow is phenomen ally gifted, and in this capacity his remarkable memory enables him to direct performances of long and intricate works without reference to tho music. Ho is an able composer, principally for tho pianoforte and orchestra, and his editions of olassical works and studies are invaluable to students. DTH. HANS_VON_BULOW. DTH. HANS_VON_BULOW.
AGRICULTURE. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News and Musical Times — 2 September 1889
Tho weather has been of a very variable character during tho past month, few warm days have occurred, and tho temperature has generally boon unusually cold for the season, snow having fallen on tho Dividing Ranges so late as the 22nd. Showers woro frequent during the month, and, especially in the early part, were so heavy as to cause considerable delay in farm and garden operations. Wheat sowing was much delayed in places, and consequently the crops throughout the colony present an uneven appearance, those sown early having made a gross growth and become' too luxuriant. The ground having been kept in a state of saturation, farmers were prevented from turning sheep on to eat the orops down, and it is feared that unless the weather provos more favorable there is a likelihood of their being attacked by rust. The state of the ground having provonted work being done on the land, tho sowing season has been prolonged boyond tho timo usually considered the most appropriate) ; but on account...
THE USE OF MUSICAL SIGNS. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News and Musical Times — 2 September 1889
THE UHE OV MUSICAL SIGNS. Signs, as distinct from notes, indicating the method of musical performance', wero until Witliiri tlid last 30 yoars in gonoral use, but tiro frequently misunderstood by the prdBont genera tion of ainateurs, since it is now the oustoin to Write out passages clearly, in such a manner that their meaning Cannot be mistaken. Among these Higns thd appoggiatura may be first mentioned, which hi thd musio of Bach, Handel, Haydn and Mozart, and even in that of Boet liovon and Sohubort, plays so important apart. I'lio appoggiatura is what fr) tdniied a jjiaoo note, . closely resembling in appearance another, termed acdiacatura. The difference between them is sometimes expressed by the stem of the latter having a cross stroke, but this is no, infallible rule, and in the older compositions tho per former has to discover whioh grace to use ' from tho general character of the work. An example of this ambiguity is to be found in the well known Turkish Hondo by Mozart, fro...
MUSICIANS AND OTHERS. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News and Musical Times — 2 September 1889
MUSICIANS AND OTHESKSY ' Kyen casual readers of tins and contemporary daily papers must havo Had the. formation of tho Society 01 Musicians of Australasia brought under their' notioo. Almost. 'evory day since the initiation of iho society,' only a few weeks ago, announcements havo boon mado recognising the union with this body of many of the most dis- tinguishod social and musical porsonagos in Australia. T^vo reason for this rapid progross is as natural as , gratifying. The aims of tlib ,now'' . society may bo shortly sum marisbd as tho protection of tho intorests of tho musical profession, its purification from those who by inobmpetonoo sully its fair roputo, tho encouragement and development of talent among promising artists Who are too poor to pay for. tuition, ; and the aiding by medical attendance or pecuniary grants of all musicians who 'may be poor, siok or in trouble of any kind.

COMMERCIAL. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News and Musical Times — 2 September 1889
An improved general demand, and business m one or two.direotions begins to show signs of more activity.'- The feeling will doubtless be sensibly increased as the warm weather com mences. Already the importing houses are be ''ginning to open' their spring drapery goods, and in this direction a brisk trade is looked for shortly if the .season is by any moans favorable. The New Zealand Loan and Mercantile Agency Company Limited report the arrival into their warehouses of the' first instalment of the new clip, 19 bales marked Gumbardo, greasy merino, from near Charville, Queensland, having come forward. It shows good quality and length, and is in better condition than last year though somewhat more yolky. Further shipments of the clip are expected shortly. The growing importance of our horse trade is beginning to attract notice. At present shipments are as a rule confined to the Indian market, but with our improved transit appliances there is really no valid reason why those more distan...

And true it was, for in less time than it takes to tell the story the water rose and half filled the barque. Small spars began to fall ; and th...
