The Way Mme. Alboni - Frustrated
: Scheme to Hiss Her. -
"Once upon a time, when Mme. Air
boni was at Trieste," writes Henry . C..
Lahee In "Famous Singers of "Today,"
"she was Informed of the existence of
a plot to hiss her off the stage. .' Hav
ing ascertained the names of her de-j
tractors and -wfyere they were to be
found, "she donned male - attire, -to '
Which, her short hair and robust fig
ure helped to complete her disguise,
and went to the cafe at which the
conspirators met. - Here she f ound
them in full consultation,' and, taking
a seat at a table, she listened to their
conversation for a time. After awhile
she addressed the leader, saying: 'I
hear that you intend to-play a trick :
upon some one. I am very fond of a
little practical joke myself and should
be glad if you would allow me to join
you on this occasion.' . " " .
" 'With pleasure, was the reply. 'We
intend to hiss an opera singer off the
stage this evening.
" 'Indeed! And of what is she"
guilty?' . - -
" 'Oh, nothing, except that, being ah.
Italian, she has sung In Munich and
Vienna to German audiences, and we
think she ought to receive some casti-gation-
for her unpatriotic conduct'
" 'I agree with you, and now please
tell me what -I am to do.'
" 'Take this whistle,' said the leader.
At a signal to' be given at the conclu
sion of the air sung by Rosina the
noise will begin, and you will have to
" 'I shall be very glad to do so,' said
the singer and put the whistle in her
- "In the evening the house was pack-ed-r-every
seat was occupied and the
audience warmly applauded the open
ing numbers of the opera. In "due
course Mme. Alboni appeared, and at
the-point at which she was about to
address her, tutor a few of the con
spirators began to make a disturbance,
not waiting for the signal. . 7-
"Without showing any concern Mme.
Alboni walked down to the footlights,
and, holding tip the whistle, which
was hung to her neck by a ribbon, she
exclaimed: 'Gentlemen, are you not a
little before your time? I thought we
were not to commence whistling until.
I had sung the air.'
'Por a moment a deathly stillness
prevailed; then suddenly , the house,
broke into thunders of applause, which
was led by the conspirators them
selves.". " '- ;

A GRATEFUL PATIENT.
The Coin That Was Measured by a
-. Famous Surgeon. -Dr.
GrenfeU an old London hospital
pupil, in a . sketch of Sir, Frederick
Treves in the Pall Mall Gazette tells
the story of a tiny sovereign gold
piece given by a grateful patient to
the famous surgeon, and guaraea Dy.
him as a- priceless treasure. A sailor
from Norway had been operated on by
Sir Frederick in hospital. :. His life had
been saved, and he had gone his way.
Late one evening - a timid knock
brought Sir. Frederick himself at that
unusual hour to his door In Wimpola
street. A tall," gaunt sailor In thread
bare attire asked if this was where
'Mr. Treves lives." At his earnest re
quest, though somewhat under protest,
he was allowed to enter. He at.pnce
proceeded to get out Jackknife, and
from the lining of the belt of his trou
sers he cut out a small gold piece and
offered it to Sir Frederick. On his re
fusal to accept It the: man was so hurt
that Sir Frederick listened to his story,
and an interesting one It was.
The : man ,had on leaving hospital
sought a berth at the London docks,
but, being a stranger, had been unable
to get oheHe, had got out of money
and had gone hungry day after day,
though he knew that he. had sewed up
In his waistband by his wife in Nor
way the piece of gold In question. ' He
had got so pulled down by bad living
that he at last decided he must spend
the money, but that very day he suc
ceeded in getting a berth; on a ship,
and his advance had given the food he
stood so sorely in need of. He had
promptly tramped all the way to Wim
pole street,.vand his .bearing .was such
that " Sir ; Frederick found himself
"bowing Into the darkness, holding the
gold piece in his -hand and .with an
overwhelming sense - of - inferiority
strongly impressed on his mind. '
A Modest Art Student.
An art student In Berlin wrote to a
brewing concern- in Bohemia, offering
to paint for the brewers "pictures suit
able for advertising purposes artistic,
appropriate, attractive and cheap." He"
went on to say: "Sir John Millals was
not above taking 40,000 marks from a
soapmaker for one of his paintings to
be used as an advertisement. Nor did
he hesitate to offer other pictures for
the same purpose at the same price.
Why should not I, who owe my tailor
and who fears to look my landlady in
the face, not do the same? Stay! I
shall do better. Am willing to take
less than 40,000 marks for my best
work." v -:
Slow and Sure. -
"How Is my son getting along?"
asked, a parent of the headmaster of
"He's slow and sure," was the re
sponse. - ' . -
"That's satisfactory r - -
"Not so," rejoined the master. "By
It I mean that he is slow to learn and
sure to forget." London Telegraph.
