So far the after arrangements are some

In answer to the ever-recurrent query
concerning the salaries of opera singers,
Hilary' Bell writes: "Singers will not tell
the terms on which they are engaged, for
ev&ry one of them firmly believes that
his or her art is worth double the money.
Nor Is the impressarlo a talkative man.
Therefore, the writer refuses to be put
on oath about figures that can
not be authoritatively proven. The
salaries of this season. however,
are about as follows: Mme. Calve,
$1500 a performance: Mme. Som
brich. $1200; Mme. Eames. $1000; Mme
Nordica. $00 (possibly $1000); Mile, de Lus
san. $300: Mme. Ternlna, $1000; Mme. Ad
ams, $CO0; Mme. Strong. $250; Mme. dc
Vere. $250; M. Alvarez, $1000; M. Saleza,
$S00; M. Van Dyck. $SO0; M. Sallgnac. $400;
Horr Dippel. $500; "M. Edouard, $CO0; M.
Pol. $500; Signer Campanari, $300; Hear
Van Rooy. $500; Mme. Mantelli. $200; Mme.
Brema, $200; Mile. Bauermelster, $100:
Mile. Olitzka. $100; Signor Manclnelll (con
ductor). $250; Heir Paur, $150; Signor Bc
vlgnani, $100. The absence of M. Jean has
not diminished receipts at the box office,
but it has relieved the pay-roll of $1500 to
$2500 a night, for the Polish tenor had a
percentage of the receipts as well as a
salary. With the exception of Calve, there
is no remarkably high-priced singer In
the company this year. The chief singers
are engaged for various periods and guar
anteed so many performances during
their engagement Thus, if a prima don
na signs a contract to remain with the
company for, say. three months, an article
in her contract gives her, say, 12 perform
ances. She Is paid by the performance,
and receives the same amount for singing
a small role as for a great one.

he has toiled to obtain some of his best

him to distinguish all chords; a practical

Mr. W. H. Lawton, of Chicago, recent
ly lectured on "The Voice Registers." He
made the statement that the success of
the old ItaJIan masters was achieved
through proceeding on the basis that there
are five registers in the voice. Mr. Law
ton declared that he has worked out tho
problem, scientifically and vocally, proving
that five registers do exist in the normal
voice, instead of three, as generally sup
posed, and that ho is able to detect with
accuracy the division of these several reg
isters. It is the lack of knowledge about
the voice registers, Mr. Lawton maintains,
that is responsible for all the confusion
that exists regarding voice teaching. It
is held by him to be the most important
point of all. and the one least understood
by the average teacher.

ANTON SCHOTTS SUCCESS.
Mucins "With G&dskl and DUpham 1b
Anton Schott, who is singing In concert
with Gadski and BIspham, In San Fran
cisco, has carried the audiences by storm
with his magnificent singing. He expects
to return to Portland by next week.
A San Francisco musician describes his
success as follows: "He simply walked off
with all the honors. He was without ques
tion the great artist of the occasion.
BIspham, with his beautiful voice and
stylo, could not compare with him in dra
matic power. In 'Tannhauser' he rose
to the occasion nobly when he .sang his
descriptions of love, hurling his con
temptuous phrases at Wolfram; and when
he sang the 'Erzahlung' without moving
a muscle, and jet acting the whole thing
out with superb dramatic effect, the
house fairly yelled their bravos, and it
was some time before Mr. Damrosch could
be heard. Mr. BIspham and Madame
Gadski applauded, too, as hard as they
could. I was told that Mr. Damrosch, in
talking to some men at the club, said
that Schott was the greatest "Wagnerian
tenor that had ever lived."

FOUR. ARTICLES OF FOOD THAT
AIIE FORBIDDEN SINGERS.
No One Cnn Have a Svrcet Voice and
a Sour Stomach Sins
I verily believe that all this musclo ex
ercls for singing is humbug, said Gadski
the other day in the Philadelphia Press.
A young woman may develop her neck
as much as sho wants, but if during -that
time she has not learned to place her tones
correctly, she will get more tired with a
strong throat than she would with a weak
I heard of a young woman who was
studying singing in a great city, and sho
would go through this muscle exercise
many times a day, and yet I found sho
never walked, she did not take the flno
fresh air, cooked her own meals and lived
on almost nothing. She said that she did
not have time to eat much, and that sho
was not hungry, anyway.
Now, nothing could have been more
senseless than that. No one can succeed
In any profession on an empty stomach.
Now about diet I do not believe much
more in this than I do In the muscle ex
ercise. It is another thing that has been run
Into the ground. I do not want to be fool
ish and appear to say that a woman- who
wants to use her voice well can eat any-
thing at any time. That would" be not
only silly in regard to singing, but In re
gard to everything else. Our stomachs
are very Intelligent parts of our bodies.
I sometimes think they are much more
intelligent than the hearts. If we treat
them like machines, they punish us. If
we treat them with sympathy and Intelli
gence, they flourish and reward us.
And so, when a person wants to do
anything well in which the nerves play
an Important part, the stomach should be
No woman wants to eat things that will
give her indigestion, because she cannot
have a sweet voice and a sour stomach.
Above all things most earnestly she
should depend upon wholesome food and
not liquid stimulants to keep her voice In
good trim. No drug or no alcohol has a
good effect on a singer. It may stimulate
her to bravado for a little while, but its
action on the heart will tell quickly.
Do Not Eat Nuts.
If you wish me to be explicit about cer
tain foods, as what to cat and what not
to eat before singing, I. know of only four
things which I strictly refuse. Do not eat
pork or mutton or nuts or candies. Oh,
especially do not cat nuts. Never touch
nuts if you can do without them, if you
want to sing well; emphatically, never
touch a nut for hours before singing.
Because of indigestion? No, it Is not
that It Is because the little husks and
bits of nut will lodge In your throat Just
as they lodge In your teeth.
There is no use saying you can wash it
down, for you can't
No liquid will promise you the completo
washing away of a little 6kin that will
lodge somewhere In the membranes. You
will think your throat Is clear, when In
the midst of one of your worst arias up
your throat will come the little bit of husk
and get on "your palate and choke you.
I promised to advise you about your
practice. Remember this: That if you do
not use your voice every day or so- you
become like one of our Korps student",
who, if he keeps out of practice with, his
schlagen, may be a great duelist in theory,
but ho will come off with his face much
slashed. One must keep In practice with
anything to be a master of that thing.
If you are taking your singing seriously
and are to make a great profession out of
it. then your hours for practice will be set
down for you by your master. But if you
are to remain an amateur with a fine
voice, then after you leave your master
you should practice every day. I do
not mean. Just sing. Not to amuse your
self with ballads, but to practice your
scales and your breath, so that when you
are called upon to sing you will not have
to say: "I am so hoarse because I have not
practiced for so long"; or to clear your
throat several times and say: "I am afraid
my throat is a little husky, for I have not
used it for so long." Fifteen or 30 minutes
with your voice each day will keep It in a
flexible condition. If you cannot play
your own accompaniment it is not really
necessary that you should have any.
Standing by the side of your piano and
striking your chords as you need them,
sing without music It is far better to
practice standing than sitting.
I hope very earnestly that what I have
said may have been of Interest to you. I
lovo to talk of my profession, for J think
it is one of the greatest and I should so
love to convince all of you that even a
sweet, little voice can be made mucto of.
and by practice, humility and & desiro to
