Not only was she a supreme vocalist,

est possible sura be could by an pos-

Fical miracle was the spoiled darling
of her day, and File nev r lailed to
obtain exactly what she wanted, says
the Pooltnian. She was first eng iged
in London in If G1 by Mnpleson to
sing four nights "on approval," and
in case of success, fo obtain $1.00 a
week. This contract was never ful-
filled, however, for, being hard
pressed financially, sho bad borrowed
$250 from a rival manager, and her
receipt proved practically a contract. ■
This was the beginning of a career so
dazzling that its smvx-ive steps are
simply a series of iiic: easing bank
notes. In 1872 she obtained in Lon-
don 200 guineas a ni0 it, since she in-
fisted on having more than Christine
Nllsson, who was receiving $1,000.

"this is i retty hot weather to be ask-
ing quest ion:-, b it 1 would like it if
somebody world tell me the origin of
the phrase 'in appie pie orjer.' mean-
ing. a;, you know, that the thing or
place so characterized is in the very
slickest and trimmest sort of shape,
homely, perhaps, but attractive and
wholesome. It originated In New j
England, no doubt; this use of pie as j
a basis of comparison seems clearly
to in licate that; but how did apple
pie come thus to be set up as the
symbol of superior excellence?
"I suppose it was partly because of
apple pie's priority of invention, for 1
imagine it will be conceded that apple
was the first pie; but I suppose that
its ccntinued use in this manner hav
been due to the apple pie's unbrokenly
continued pre-eminence in all good pie j
quaiitie . It could not have hen long 1
after the invt: tion of apple pie be 1
f ire pumpkin pie was introduced, and
mince is certainly an old time pie. and
so Ilkev a-e is cranberry; and 'in apple
i ie order' certainly could not at once
have become so firmly intrenched
among the contemporaneous native
New England forms cf speech as to
preclude the possibility of its being
supplanted by 'in pumpkin pie order.'
or in n,i;;"e p<e order,' if the.-e not
ni'.teh liked productit lis of Pibrim ia-
genuttv had either of then displaced
apple pie from the highest pinnacle
of popular esteem.
"But neither of them ever did. which
shows to my mind Jncide it ally m t
only the clearheadedness and corr vt
taste of those sagacious early in veil
tors of pie but as " eli the pcrsnicuity
ef their- succeeding generations. 'In
apple pie order' stiil stand", as indeed
it should; for of all pies apple pie Is
lvi I mbtedly ti e best, and if we are
to have a pie figure lo- denote excel
, 1 ''tee that pie should be a pale pie.
"As it is made in Not.' England

been i de ready for eating.
"For this pie. the rea! apple pie of

Mellowed Into Condition, Wood
Then Perfect for Producing
"O-Ran pipes," says a \v> U-known i
builder, "are made of the be white!
pine and the older and better sea- j
soned the wood, the better the qual-
ity of tone given out by the pipe.
"In fi rainiiv and Eng and, w hen an
old pahMc building, such as a chinch, |
town nail, or large structure ca any |
kind is to be taken clown, there is al-
ways an organ builder haunting the
place to find out of what wood th •
roof end iloor beams are made, and
if he discovers that they are of white
pine, he is ready to pay almosi .ir.y
reasonable price for them, provided,
of course, they are in good condition,
without knots or nail holts. 1!" knows
that many of these churches and oth
er buildings were erected 400 or non
years ago, and that through 40 or f>0
decades, the wood bad been slowly
drying and hardening until it has
reached a condition which, from the
organ builders' point of view, is per-
fection. Then he takes the old bonus
home to his factory, covering them
in transit with tarpaulins, cuts them
into boards of the desired si'.e and
makes his pipes with perfect couli-
d^nce that the organ he is building
! will be a musical success.
"Most of the old organs of Europe,
that is organs built from 100 to 300
yea«f ago. have a mellowness of tone
that distinguishes them troni modern
instruments, and although the ski'l o,
the toner is now lessening the di'
lerence between these new pipe and
those that have been seasoned ' .
use, there is still a difference t •*
the old organs and the new ,n in
there is between vio'ius mule , •.
and those Cremona instrumer ti::"
have mellowed with time.
"American oigan builders sp a.', m.
time looking lor old beams, 1
do keep their lumber sen <■ • ed ,
drying under shelter for kc , years
before they use it and then ; lid on
the toner to make up the difference."
