Then ahe was transplanted to tho

In no time ahe could sing Freurh

scored an enormous hit.
Thla waa gratifying but It waa not

She wished to slug tho roles written

Jeuuease doreo would not compensate
her for loss of n genuine musical ca-

She first appeared In Naplos and tho

Her eyes woro shnilod by tho most
marvelous pair of eyolnshos that droop

Denver Hunters With Hounds In the
