BECOMING STYLES, LOVELY BICII MATERIALS, VERPECTLY TAILORED 1'liIGED AN EXTENSIVE KANGJl OF THE VERY BEST THINGS SHOWN IX THE EASTERN CENTRES. at Sydney. Early In 19H a Sydney music warehouse ordered n number of pianos from a prominent maker In Hermany. The instruments were for by Iho firm In July of the same year, and despalchcd for ship- ment to Australia. The boat carry-1 ing Ihcm of 'course, wna of Cleiman ownership- Just about the lime of the declaration ot between England and Germany ihe vessel was sailing down the easlern coasl of Africa. She was one of England's first navy prizes, anil was Interned in a harbor ot Portuguese East Africa.' When Portugal declared war on Germany, the former coun- try courteously took charge of the shin's cargo, and rcsblpped It lo lls[ .consignees. i When Ike cargo was at' Sydney anil delivery taken of the German pianos last week Ihc ilis- i covery was mado. I on Ihc noles behind Ihe fall-board 'of of Ihe pianos a piece of white paper was found, on which was wrlllcn in Ink: lly the time Ihls reaches you, England -will be at war with Gcr-, many, and you will havo to ac- knowledge tho Kaiser as your ruler. She will first attack France, then Ilussia. anil In five year's lime the United Slates. That Ihe paper'and Ihe wrllltiE on I is of r.erman origin Is, It is staled .ty a prominent member of the firm. Indisputable- From the lime when the pianos left the hands of inanufaclurers up .1111 lhat when they were opened In Sydney It Is certain that they wer6 nol In any way tampered with. They were cased securely as thousands of other pianos of Ihc same r.ame from Ihc. same maker which were ordered during pasl and pre-war years by the Sydney company, and sold IhroiiRhmil the. Commonwealth. II is calculated lhat this now that Germany was Ihc aggressor In tiic European war was written early In Juno of 1911, two months prior to the outbreak of hoalllilles. When It Is considered Ilial Iho factory of the piano manufacturers In this case la situated In Ihe heart of Ihc Ulack Foresl, In Uie Interior of Germany, It Is obvious that pracllcally nil Ger- mans Vnew of the wsr Ions liefort 11 wea officially declared.
