A MODERN BOY. SOME CHARACTERISTICS. [Newspaper Article] — Cowra Free Press — 28 January 1911

MODERN BOY. T y ... SOME CHARACTERISTICS. (By "SakI," in the "Dally Mall.") "It would be rather nice if you would put Clovls up for another six days while I go up north to the MacGregora," said Mrs Sangrail sleepily across the break fast table. It was her Invariable plan to speak In a sleepy, comfortable voice whenever she was unusually keen about I anything; it put people off their guard, and they frequently fell in with her wishes beforn they realised that she was really asking for anything. Lady ; Bastable, however, was not so easily taken unawares; possibly she knew that voice and what it betokened-at any rate, she knew Clovls. She frowned at a piece of toast and ate It very slowly, as though she wished to convey the Impression that the pro cess hurt her more than it hurt the toast; but no extension of hospitality on Clovls's behalf rose to her lips. "It would be a great convenience to me," pursued Mrs Sangrail, abandoning the careless tone, "I particularly don't want to take hi...

JINGLE MUSIC. NEW YORK ENSLAVED. [Newspaper Article] — Cowra Free Press — 28 January 1911

JINGLE MUSIC. NEW YORK ENSLAVED. (By J. W. T. Mason In the " Daily Express.") New York Is rag-time crazy. The Jingle-tingle melody that has bepn de veloped from the negro banjo music, played as accompaniment to the buck ^ dancing of the blacks, has emerged from ! Its colored environment, and Is now a I white rag. For many years rag time has i been popular In America, 6'ut the rag , songs have related negro incidents. Now, for the first time, the negro rags have t disappeared, and their place is taken by . the rag of the dominating race. | Wherever one goes there is rag music. , Everything is interpreted by rag time. I The Jews, the Italians, the Irish, all the nationalities in cosmopolitan New York ihave their own rag songs. The street organs play them, children whistle them, and the musical comedies teem with them. A New York musical play without a rag song these days couldn't make a hilt. At the theatres where there Is straight drama the orchestras ' perpetrate rag time between th...
