    The concert given in the hall of the Y. M. C. A. on Wednesday afternoon by the pupils of Mr. Herbert H. Rice, a well-known and talented musician, was highly successful. The attendance was very numerous, the audience being of such a character as to indicate that the labours of Mr. Rice are watched with the keenest interest by many of the leading members of the community. The instruments to which the pupils of Mr. Rice mainly devote their attention are the violin, the piano, and the flute. The principal violin numbers consisted of an "Intermezzo" (Gurlitt), a "Romance" (Dancla), a Sonata in F (Mozart), a duet for piano and violin, an Etude in G minor (David); and the principal piano solo was "Bolero" (Raff). The Sonata in F which is a rather long and trying piece, was well played by Miss Eva Richards (piano) and Miss Winifred Dibbs (violin). Master Clive Callaghan secured an encore for the excellence of his playing of the violin solo, "Impromptu." Miss E. Waller and Masters O'Callaghan and A. Caro (three children, none of whom are more than eight years of age) contributed the "Fairies' Wedding Waltz," and were deservedly encored. ...

Fortunate in the possession of three or four students or more than ordinary talent, Mr. Rice contrived to place a well-arranged, and in the event markedly effective, programme before his visitors. ...
    Amongst the young violinists nearly equal pride of place may be given to Miss Eastermorn Waller, whose good, free bowing, and generally accurate tone in De Beriot's "Scene de Ballet" (op. 100) won applause, and to Miss Sanger Evans, a somewhat more advanced pupil, who showed brilliant execution in De Beriot's "7th Concerto." ...

    The Y.M.C.A. Hall was crowded last night on the occasion of the annual concert of the pupils of Mr. Herbert H. Rice. The pupils evidenced the character of their training, and several of the items were rendered with brilliancy, while the numbers in which all the pupils appeared were deservedly applauded. The concert opened with a selection. "Gavotte Heimliche Liebe," in which 14 performers appeared with excellent effect. In the second part the pupils gave two other selections. A piano solo by Miss Irene Button, with Mr. H. A. Jaques second piano, Messrs. Evans, Thompson, Soutter, Messrs. Schmellitscheck and H. Rice violins, Horace Rice viola, and Straus 'cello, was an exceedingly fine performance. Miss Isabel Vivian and Miss Mabel Baxter, both showed evidence of power and careful tuition in their selections on the piano, and solos on the violin were given by Misses Alice Forsyth, Ada Soutter, Elsie Anderson, Mary a'Beckett, Eastermorn Waller, and Sanger Evans. In all cases the young ladies acquitted themselves with great credit to themselves and their master. The concert was in every way most successful.

    The opening of the new drill hall, Gladesville, was celebrated by a Grand Military Ball on Friday night, and the promoters had every reason to be gratified at the great success of the function which far exceeded anything of the kind held in the district for many a long day. The fine commodious hall was packed with a gay and brilliant assemblage, and the arrangements were carried out in a manner that gave unbounded satisfaction to all. The decorations, upon which much labor, skill, and taste had been expended, were of an expensive character—quite an undertaking in themselves. They could not have been more suitable for the occasion, and the general effect, when dancing to the excellent strains of O'Connor's string band [when it] was in full swing, was something to be remembered. Refreshments wore provided in a commodious marquee just outside the hall. ...

After these the gathering took the form of a "conversazione," when tea, coffee, and light refreshments were served, and the visitors moved about and chatted to their friends. Among those present we met Lady Barton, Mrs. Ronald Macintyre, Miss Maguire, Mr. Waller, Mrs. Hodgson, Mrs. D. J. Monk, Mrs. J. Marshall, Mrs. Langley, Mrs. Jenkins, Mrs. A.

Stage heroines and villainesses alike are partial to red tresses, which to-day are accepted as being vastly becoming.

    [From our Correspondent]
    A most enjoyable social took place at Abingdon on Friday evening last, the promoters being Misses L. Dunn and A. Shaw, and these ladies proved themselves to be charming hostesses. They were assisted by Messrs. T. W. Fuller and A. E. McBride, who left no stone unturned to make the function a decided success.
    The social was held in the large vestibule at Abingdon, kindly lent for the occasion by Mrs. W. A. Robinson. It was converted into an ideal ball-room by the lady promoters. The room was beautifully decorated with foliage and flowers, the walls presenting an emerald green appearance, the lighting effects blending with the various colors of the costumes worn by the ladies.
    There were about sixteen couples present, and dancing was continued with vigour from 8 p.m. till 3 a.m.. Mr. P. W. Leary made a very efficient M.C., and received the highest praise for his endeavours to make everyone enjoy themselves.
    The music before supper was supplied by Miss Waller (violin), sister to Mrs. W. A. Robinson, who is recuperating at Abingdon, ably assisted by Miss Buley, governess at Kimo (piano), and it was indeed a musical treat, as Miss Waller is considered one of the most accomplished lady violinists in this State. After supper violin music was supplied by Messrs. W. Higgins and Bert. Edwards.
    Before the company adjourned to supper, Mr. Leary, in a very complimentary speech, thanked Mrs. Robinson on behalf of those assembled for her extreme courtesy, Misses Waller and Buley for the great musical treat they had supplied, and the lady promoters. Mr. Graham, a visitor at Abingdon from Newcastle, in the absence of Mr. W. A. Robinson, in a neat speech, returned thanks, and assured the assemblage that Mrs. Robinson and the lady musicians were only too pleased to be able to contribute towards the evening's entertainment, and more so when they knew that their efforts were so highly appreciated.
    An excellent supper was served at about midnight. It reflected great credit on the lady promoters.
    Songs were contributed during the evening by Messrs. Bert. Edwards and W. Higgins, but the gem was the song, "Sweet Marie," by Miss Waller, with piano and violin accompaniment.
    I must offer an apology to the ladies for not being able to describe the various costumes worn, but I can say they were very becoming, and in some instances were extremely pretty.

    The Sydney Amateur Orchestral Society seems to he increasing in popularity, and many well-known folk are always to be found among its audiences. Indeed, the crush lately has been so great that it is almost impossible to distinguish one's friends or to single out any special personages in the closely arranged rows of seats. The concert last week was again a huge success, and the vocalist of the evening (Miss Elsie M'Cauley) sang in a smart frock of pale blue silk trimmed with touches of cream lace, and a corsage bouquet of sweet-scented violets. She was rewarded for her efforts with some beautiful flowers. We saw Mr. T. H. Kelly and Mus Veronica Mollison, Mrs. Theodor Boesen, Mr. Kelso-King and the Misses Kelso-King, Mrs. H. C. Dangar, Judge Heydon, Miss E. Waller, Dr. and Mrs. Macneil Simpson, Mr. and Mrs. Walter Marks, Mrs. Julius Caro, and Mr. J. St. Vincent Welch.

The final concert of the season on Saturday night was just as charming as those which preceded it. There were encores innumerable, and at the close of his last programmed number Herr Premyslav added no fewer than three encores. Mr. Andrew Black sang well, in spite of suffering from a bad throat. Miss Beattie, the talented pianist, looked girlish and charming in a simple gown of rose-pink Roman satin. She received a lovely posy of shaded red and pink roses.

    Why is it that Australian girls change their names when they are pursuing the laurels in Europe and England? Recently an Australian girl made a hit as a singer at the London Hippodrome as Osca Marah, and it took weeks for Australians to locate her as May Macaulay, of Balmain. Now a violinist has made a successful appearance at Vienna as "Mlle. Vivia de Varennes." She has finished her studies under the tuition of Sevcik at Prague. Mlle. has been identified as Miss Eastermorn Waller, of Sydney, a former pupil of Henri Staell. One would think that the Christian name of "Eastermorn" would be distinguishing mark enough for any "star," but obviously the lady preferred to be Vivia. Apropos of Henri Staell, he has so far recovered from an operation for appendicitis, which was performed at Lewisham private hospital some weeks ago, that he is announced to play at the Symphony concert In Sydney, on April 1.

Mr. Waller married the widow of the late Dr. Hester, and was a partner in the firm of Moore and Waller, stock and station agents. This firm, I think, formed the nucleus of the big business now controlled by Dalgety and Co. Ltd. On the formation of the Sydney Harbour Trust, Sir Wm. Lyne appointed Mr. T. F. Waller as one of the commissioners. Mrs. Wallace Robinson, of Abington Station, near Gundagai, is a daughter of the late Mr. Waller, also Mrs. Scott Skirving, of Sydney.

    Grim war and its horrors have been brought all too closely to the Waller family of this city. A cable a day or so ago tells Mr. Frank WaIIer, of Dalton House, that his sister, Miss Eastermorn Waller was one of the victims of the attack on Paris recently by the Barbarians, with that long-range gun. She was one of Australia's promising artists, and was in Germany at the time that the Kaiser decided he wanted to be king of the earth. In the muddle Miss Waller, with others, found herself virtually a prisoner in Kaiserland. Two years later she contrived to get to Paris, where she remained, taking up her study of the Strad and the Cremona, till this tragic happening sought her out. She was father's beloved girl, and the one little grain of comfort is to be found in the fact that he will never know of her death, dying himself a few months since. His was a familiar figure on the Sydney Stock Exchange. A bereaved brother can tell no more for the present than what a curt cable conveys.

She was one of Australia's promising artists, and was in Germany at the time that the Kaiser decided he wanted to be king of the earth. In the muddle Miss Waller, with others, found herself virtually a prisoner in Kaiserland. Two years later she contrived to get to Paris, where she remained, taking up her study of the violin till this tragic happening sought her out.

    Grim war and its horrors have (says the Sydney "Sun") been brought all too closely to the Waller family, of Sydney. A cable a few days ago told Mr. Frank Waller, of "Dalton House," Sydney, that his sister, Miss Eastermorn Waller, was one of the victims of the attack on Paris recently by the Germans, with that long-range gun. She was one of Australia's promising artists, and was in Germany at the time that the Kaiser decided he wanted to be king of the earth. In the muddle, Miss Waller, with others, found herself virtually a prisoner in Kaiserland. Two years later she contrived to get to Paris, where she remained; taking up her study of the Strad and the Cremona, till this tragic happening sought her out. She was her father's loved girl, and the one little grain of comfort is to be found in the fact that he will never know of her death, dying himself a few months since.

    Miss Eastermorn Waller, a well known Hobart girl, passed away with tragic suddenness last month in Paris. She was killed by a lump of lead from the Jules Verne gun, with which the Huns have been shelling the Franch capital at intervals since the beginning of the 1918 offensive. Miss Waller, who was a good musician, was playing in an orchestra in Paris when she met her death. Mrs. Scott Skirving, wife of the Sydney specialist, now at the front, is a sister of the deceased. One Scott Skirving son, an army medico, made the supreme sacrifice in France over two years ago.

    When the long range German gun boomed over Paris, a well-known Sydney girl was one of its victims. Dainty, golden-haired Eastermorn Waller was studying the violin in Germany when the Kaiser decided he wanted to own the earth. With some friends Miss Waller reached Paris and has been there ever since. A brief cable told the news to a heart-broken brother, Mr. Frank Waller, and nothing more. Mrs. Scot Skirving—a sister—had left our shores a short time before with her popular husband, who has gone again to perform some of his wonderful surgery for “the boys.”

The unusual name called forth many humorous but good-natured remarks from her school fellows, but perhaps the wittiest comment was made by her schoolteacher: “How fortunate she wasn’t born thirty-six hours sooner. She might have been called Good Friday Afternoon!”
