The whole all'uir was a mystery which could have but ;i human solution. She made light of the romantic story concerning Louis do Palco logue, and believed, with a feminine in stinct for the obvious, that vulgar flirta tion had been the impulse of Faber's journey. All this hurt her pride, but could not be the just subject of com plaint. Tenaciously she clung to the idea that she might yet use this master intellect for the schemes which had lifted her fath er and herself from the slough of monot ony to a little place in the story of the world. This very accident, this revela tion of a man's wcakndbs, might be a precious opportunity, however deeply her vanity suffered. It' she succeeded, her triumph must be the greater; if she failed ? . But failure was a word which Silvester refused to add to her vocabulary. So she went over the 'Wanderer' to tell her fath...
PLENTY OF MUSIC. RUSSIAN MILITARY BANDS. [Newspaper Article] — Western Age — 23 December 1914
PLENTY OF MUSIC. RUSSIAN MILITARY BANDS. One feature of the Russian army which from time to time has been brought to the attention of the world is the unusual size and number of bands In the military forces of the Czar. Tho Russian soldier has more martial music than any other soldier In the world. There Is no regiment In the Russian ser vice without its own band, and at posts where not a regiment, but only a battalion, is quartered, that battalion has Its band. And these Russian military bands arc big and Impressive musical organisations. Within each Is a brass band and an orchestra of 1 string and wood Instruments, with, ot course, the necessary touch of brass and sheepskin. Tho result Is that, while these military bands play primarily military music, they also adapt themselves to the performance of such music aB we hear at a symphony concert. The average Russian army band, or or chestra, has from 40 to 60 musicians, and the orchestras of certain guard regiments contain 60. There ...
