Ristori’« Plea.
I met one day last week an old lady
who told me this story of Ristori, of
whom she spoke in terms of most de­
voted friendship. The story has never,
she told me, been printed before:
Mme. Ristori was playing in the oity
of Madrid in the Royal Theater. She
had carried the audience away in the
act by her great power, the curtain had
fallen on the first act, and unusually
long applause occurred. No one could
understand her absence. The time
came and passed when she should have
resumed play. What was the meaning
of her absonceP As she was passing
from the stage, in the wings, stood a
poor woman, who caught her I"*
“Madame," she said, “do you
that bell now tolling P"
“That bell tolls for tbs death o4 aty '
husband; he will dis at sunrise to-mor-'
row. Won’t you," shs implored the
woman, “plead for meP The Queen !
sits in the box yonder."
The great tragedy queen went to the
Royal box and begged for the life of I
that man—a man that she had no par
ticular interest in, but simply because i
he was going to die. Mme. Ristori
pleaded so well with the Queen that i
with a pencil she wrote his reprieve
and he was saved. Meantime the truth
had crept out among the audience, and
when the curtain rose
ross again ths whole,
audience sprang to their feet. Tears |
ran like rain. Hats and handkerchiefs
were waved. Shout after shout went I
up from ths multitude—not for the
regie queen, but for the woman infln-
.tely greater—the.woman that pleaded
for a life, and not in vain."'

Ella Wheeler-Wilcox. the author of
"Poems of Passion,” has a fair ecm-
plexion and hazel eyes. It is said that
the poetess took her first dancing les­
sons at a village near her home, when
she was 8 years old. She became a
terpsiehorean devotee, and, when not
composing, often gayly tippet! the light
fantastic, like some fabled faun, hum­
ming a tune to suit the motion. Years
afterward she was at a reception given
in her honor, and danced with such
grace that a reporter described her not.
only as“the poetry of motion, but poetry
in motion.” Her iirst attempt at compos­
ing was at the age of 8 years. A lot of
old-fashioned Howers grew about her
uoine. On the blank page of old let­
ters she found she wrote a story d< scrib­
ing the jealousy of Mr. Hollyhock be­
cause Miss Dahlia danced with Mr.
Nasturtium and Miss Fouro’eloek hung
her head in a sulky manner because
Mr. Bachelorbutton did not waits with
her. Ella’s mother noticed her absorb­
ing occupation,and when the little story
was read, she foresaw the literary fu­
ture of her child. But poetry, success,
adulation, and even marriage have not
robbed her of the love for dancing, and
her grace in that accomplishment keeps
pace with her literary progress. She
wrb in New York the other day reading
Erocif for her forthcoming novel, "Miu
loulee.” She said: "I am not as im­
pervious to criticism now as I was be­
fore I was married. Since I was mar­
ried many cruel and bitter things ap­
peared in print about my husband and
myself. Why, a woman who professed
to be my friend wrote to an Indian­
apolis paper that she saw my husband,
and described him as a man devoid of
any emotion. She wound up the letter
bv saying that he had exhausted all
pleasures, and at last concluded to niar-
ry a poetess just for the novelty. These
are mild stories compared to some. If
all couples were as happily married as
we the world would be filled only with
sweetness and light.”
