THE ORIGIN OF THE POLKA. [Newspaper Article] — St Arnaud Mercury — 14 March 1914

THE ORIGIN OF THE POLKA. The dance, which was once no fam ous, is of Bohemian origin. A peas. ant girl, servant to a citizen in Elbe kosteletz, a town three hour s distance roin Prague, was, on a Sunday, danc ing for her pastime, at the same time accompanying her steps with an air of her own fancy. The schoolmaster and organist, Joseph Neruda, having observed her movements, composed a suitable air. The dance was perform. ed for the first time in public at Elbe kosteletz, then at Prague, where it ob, tained the name of Polka; at Paris it became very popular, and finally found its way to London, Now York, and all the great, towns on both aides of the Atlantic. The most beautiful volume in the Congressional Library at Washington is a Bible which was transcribed by s monk in the sixteenth century. It could not be matched to-day in the best printing office in the world. The parclnhmnt is in perfect preservation. Eivery one of its thousand pages, is a study. The general lettering is is Ge...

WELLINGTON AND HIS FIDDLE. [Newspaper Article] — St Arnaud Mercury — 14 March 1914

WELLINGTON ANDI HIS FIDDLE, The Duke of Wellington played the violin as a subaltern, but giaRe it lup when he becamo a field oflicer, The reason for this renunciation i:; upplied by the following extract from a lhater written by Mrs, Stuart Mackenzie to the Duke of Sutherland in 1852: "Everyone knows that to the last the Duke was fond, and a fine judge, of music; in youth he was a performer o; the violin, that, giving up a great deal of time to it, he began to fear lest the hereditary taste should get the better of him, and in one day tie broke the spell, laid aside his violin, and never afterwards touched it. This circum. stance occurred during the time of his early attachment to my dear friend the Duchess, who has often repeated it to me with pride as an omen of what was to be expected from his great self-com m:nd and firmness of decision," It may be added that tho Duke of Wellington inherited his love of music from his father, Lord Mlornington, whl was a Doctor of Musio, and a co...

When the people of the Commonwealth turned their attention ooriouily to the matter of defence, they called Lord Kitchener to their aid and adopted hisa ohlme though it involved a very largo outlay. Lord Kitchenor'o ea timateo ha been (-xceedod, and it is more than doubt ful whether the onds at which his sohemo aimed have boon attained. Clearly Australia cannot do' fend the Northern Territory till there is a transcontinental line running from tho populated South to the practically unpnopled North, The Commiosionera appointed to inquire into the con struotion of the proposed railway put the coot of a broad gauge line at £7,000,000; of a 3ft Gin line at £5,000 000. Senator Millen is naturally alarmed by the financial outlook, but he is not an alarmist, and, whilst appealing to military experts to keep outlay within reasonable bounds, has not the elightest d...
