Sept. 6. 1915 —As had been decided
in family council of the Romanoffs,
with the scheming Rasputin making
the suggestion, the Czar himself be
came commander-in-chief of the Rus
sian armies. His able uncle, Grand
Duke Nicholas, was transferred to a
command in the Caucasus.
The announcement was greeted
with approval by the Russian public
at large, for they thought, "The
Czar will get things done, he will
throw out the bureaucrats who are
responsible for the defeats,” but from
a practical standpoint the ezrar could
•iot have made a greater mistake. He
had nut himself on the spot. He had
nlayed directly into the hands of the
pro-Germans, for they knew that he
was utterly without military ability;
while outside of Russia the military
skill of the Grand Duke Nicholas was
everywhere conceded. He was to
give further evidence of it later.
Certainly the tremendous reverses
‘he Russians had suffered could not
be attributed to the Grand Duke. In

fact, his sagacity had made an ord
erly retreat of what could easily have
been a disordered flight and had
thwarted the German hopes of enve
loping the main Russian armies and
crushing the Russian defense.
There can be little doubt now that
when the weak-willed Czar took per
sonal command of the Russian arm
ies, he sealed the fate of his dynasty.
You’re in error if you suppose.
That Stardivari has never been ex
celled as a violin-maker because of
some miraculous secret now lost.
The same varnish, wood, technique,
etc., were used hv other violin-makers
of his day, with the same excellent
results. The fame surrounding his
name is largely due to an Italian
Tarisio, who was neither a violin
maker nor a musician, who accident
ly became a collector of old-violins
and particularly of those made by
Stradivari. When he had cornered
the market in the latter, he encour
aged the idea that a ’Strad” was the
finest instrument in the world, and
he sold his stock at handsome profits.
This encouraged other dealers to
have “Strads” counterfeited, and the
expose of this fraud only served to
further the idea that Stradivari vio
lins were “tops”.
Great violinists of Stradivari’s time
regarded the German-made Strainer
violins as better!
So don’t get excited if you find an
old violin in your attic labeled Strad
ivarius, It might be worth $3.
