Fifteen years ago I resided for the
winter in southern Albania. My two
maias ana I uvea in a small cottage
not far from the village of Scutari, near
the Adriatic sea During my stay there
I had some very interesting experiences
witn two Albanians ot the lower class.
which resulted in the discovery and
training of one of the greatest singers
of today.
It was my habit to walk to Scutari
and back early every morning before
breakfast. I always went alone for I
was not the least afraid. One morning
during quite a heavy rainstorm I
sought refuge in what I thought was
a deserted shack. It was very dark and
1 could not see any of my surroundings.
Then the rain lessened and to my sur
prise I became aware that something
was near me. I put out my hand to
feel it. The something snored once
quite loudly and rolled over. Then It
sat up. I perceived it was a very old
"P-p-pardon," I gasped. "I didn't
know you were here. I mean, I thought
I was alone."
The old man Just stared. I recreated
my apology more loudly and rose to
go. To my horror the man stood up
"I really must be going," I assured
him firmly.
My host gazed at me. He was openly
suspicious. I remembered I had been
speaking English. I knew enough Al
banian to converse with a native, so I
repeated all that I had said in Albanian
explaining my presence. The wrinkled

a broad smile. He told me his name
was Zeolane and asked me to come
again. I started to leave but Zeolane
laid an old. dirty, gnarled hand on
mine and detained me. I did not want
to seem rude so I paused.
The Man luuthed shrilly, sending the
chills up and down my spine and cried
in nis queer, cracked voice. Bokannia:
Bokannia, my child, come hither!"
1 heard the sweet voice ot a little
child mid out ot a heap of animal skins
crawled a little girl.
"Good morning, grandfather," she
She ran to the old man. Then, see
ing me, she drew back, frightened. She
was a beautiful child. Her long, black
hair fell over her shoulders In pretty
waves. Her black eyes were large and
full of expression. Instead of the swar
thy skin, characteristic of the Aluan-
lans, sne had a lovely pink-and-wnite
complexion that contrasted charmingly
with her dark hair and eyes.
"Good morning. Bokannia" I said
and patted her curls reassuringly.
she smiled shyly and as 1 went out
the door of the little, thatched-roofed,
one-roomed cottage, she waved good
bye. The storm had passed by and I turn
ed my steps homeward as it was too
late to continue my hike to Scutari.
After breakfast I tried to interest my
self in a good magazine from the States,
out i kept imnking or tne sweet voice
of the pretty little child, Bokannia. I
had heard that one who had such a
musical voice was sure to be a lovely
singer. I determined to have Bokannia
sing for me.
The next morning I went again to
the home of Zeolane. The child was
standing in the door-way, digging her
bare toes into the soft mud before the
door-step. I believe she was watching
for me, for wnen she saw me her eye3
lit up joyously and she ran to meet me.
She slipped her hand in mine and walk
ed by my side to the door. There we
stopped. Bokannia ran into the house
and I saw she was instructing Zeolane
to prepare breakfast for three. Soon
the girl came out of the hut with a
pail of water and a large scrubbing
brush. Laughingly she bade me move
away from the doors
small Droom she swept and then scrub
bed the step. After it was dry I seated
myself on it and pulled Bokannia down
oy II le. ,
"Bokannia," I said kindly, "Would
you like to sine for me?" I felt verv
sure that she was accustomed to sing
ing iur ner granaiatner.
"Yea" she said ana smiled.
Then without any sign of her former
shyness she began crooning a beautiful
song. I could nut understand the words
but the tones were clear and sweet.
She had a wonderful voice. I had never
neara tnythlng like it. When she had
finished Zeolane called us in to break
fast of black bread and porridge. I
could not help thinking of my good
breakfast that I was missing but de
cided it was worth it all to have heard
Bokannia sing.
I ate hastily and then said, "Mr. Zeo
lane, may I take Bokannia home with
me? I'll bring her back tomorrow
The old man consented but I could
see it cost him an effort. I took her
home and had great fun in dressing
lier up in dainty frocks of my own han
diwork. My maids and I were greatly
pleased with the effect. I washed, comb
ed, and brushed her beautiful hair and
gave her a general bathing. To their
delight she consented to sing for the
maids. They agree with me that Bok
annia had a wonderful voice.
If the giri could have training I was
sure the girl would make a name for
herself In the operatic world. Then the
idea came to me. I had plenty of money.
1 wouia give this gin a musical educa
tion at Berlin.
I was right in my belief that Bok
annia could be a great singer if given
the opportunity. Tonight, after fifteen
years Bokannia Is making her American
debut in "Aida" with the Metropolitan
Opera Company. I am patiently await
ing the passing hours 'til the curtain
t Ises. Far across the ocean old Zeolane
is still able to be joyous with Bokauiua
over her success.
