.A Little Gossip About Some of the
Eminent Song-Birds Who
CHARMED OUR CITIZENS LONG AGO.
The Tisits of Parepa-Eosa, Christine Xilsson'
and the Pattis.
HOW WACHTEL ELECTRIFIED THE TOM

Adam would be an old man now if lie
were living. And being old, he would
never hare done telling us how much better
the apples were in his young days than any
apples that are raised now. The ejes of old
age become long-sighted, bat the far-away
things they look upon are the things that
I am not old. Far otherwise. Bat there
is jost frost enough upon my head to set me
thinking very pleasantly of the time when
the weather was all summer sunshine, and
when never a raven croaked among all the
birds thataang to us.
How many of those song-birds there were;
snd how the music they made echoes among
the notes of to-day, causing many of them to
seem but feeble enough twitterings Some re
jcent events have called up more than the
usual number of recollections connected
'with old-time musical experiences in Pitts
, burg, and a disposition to gossip about them
has been provoked.
An event of signal importance occurred
when old Masonic Hall was still the place
where Pittsburg's best and choicest thronged
"to hear music and oratory. Here, not so
1 very long after the war had ended, came
Jlsdam Pare pa to reveal to us how much
of heaven's music a woman can carry in her
Only a little blowing of trumpets herald
ed her coming. She was so far unknown
that many mnsic-lovers debated among
themselves whether it would be worth
' while to go and hear her. That question
was never asked again. The first golden
notes she uttered assured us (hat one of the
- world s greatest sincere hud come among
us; and lone before the last note had sound
ed Parepa was a Pittsburg favorite. And
that meant a great deal. Uot only were
the people her admirers; they were her
iriends. For a more lovable, womanly
woman is rarely seen, ou the stage or ott it,
than was Parepa.
THEY LAUGHED "WITH HER.
Kot one in the audience appreciated more
keenly than she the funny possibilitiesofawk
wardness created by her immense size. Bnt
she never was awkward. When little Carl
P.osa, who was the violinist of the troupe,
led her upon the stage in answer to a recall,
the audience tried not to langh at the absurd
nwctacle. But Parepa realized the ab
surdity as fully as any of themjand she sent
far down upon her diminutive escort such
a smile of good-natured appreciation that
everybody laughed with her. Mobody ever
lanehed at her.
Later, when she sang here in opera, the
same genial spirit of appreciative humor
saved many a scene from the wreck of ridi
cule. Nothing could be much funnier than
the attempt of Susannah to personate the
Countess in "The Marriage of Figaro",
when Parepa was Susannah and sweet
voiced little Bose Thersee was the Countess.
But the ponderous maid appreciated the fun
bo richly that the audience only enjoyed her
appreciation or it
She married her little escort of that first
evening, and was known thenceforth as
Hadam Parepa-Eosa. Theirs was a happy
married life, but it ended far too soon.
These many years Parepa has been only a
memory. Bnt who of us would exchange
that memory for much gold? There may
have been singers who gave us better art,
"bnt has there bea one who gave us better
Hot in Masonic Hall, but in Library
Hall, where the Bijou Theater now is, was
Christine Nilsson heard in her first Amer
ican season. Those who were young then
will remember that first concert night when
they are old. The exquisite art, the bril
liant execution, the melodious sweetness and
the pretty audacities of the splendid Swede
were not things to forget And when she
gave the mad scene from "Hamlet," which
was introduced as a concert number, she
produced at least one impression that would
not readily depart. To see Ophelia raving
melodiously in a gown of scarlet silk, and
tearing her hair with such methodical mad
ness that not a diamond in the multitude of
gems which crowned her was disturbed, was
something to remember indeed. But it was
only afterward that it seemed incongruous.
Christine Xilsson could have made stranger
things than that seem consistent and har
monious while her audience listened to her.
XILSSON'S GREATEST TRIUMPH.
Tbeclimaxof her triumph was when she
eang, in prettily oroKen .English, "Xiie Old
Folks At Home." If Stephen C. Foster
bad eTer seen, with the bodily eve, the
Suwannee river I doubt if he would have
written that song; for the stream is not one
to get homesick lor. Bnt he did write the
ballad, and Pittsburg loved it and was
proud or it And when this great singer
sitlg it with tender pathos she had her au
dience at her feet, and raised a glad commo
tion ot applause which must have thrilled
even her heart with triumphant pleasure.
In later year, while crossing the North
ern part of Florida, I happened in a railroad
car :n which all the other passengers were
members of a minstrel troupe, passing from
Tallahassee to Jacksonville. As the train
crept upon the bridge across the Suwannee
river every one of those men, by a common
impulse, began to sing; and ttie song they
Bang was "The Old Folks At Home." They
sang it perfectly, and I, listening then to
the song in the place Foster had written
.nbont, thought of that other time when I
had heard it sung in the place where Foster
had written it And to this dav I nm nnt
qnite snre but I liked the minstrel rendering
Annie Louise Cary, if memory is not in
fault, was heard here for the first time with
Xilsson; and the singer from Maine fairly
divided the honors with the singer from
Sweden. Her triumphs were genuine and
well-won. Is there any contralto like her
A PITTSBURG FAVORITE.
,Long before any of these singers were
heard in Pittsburg, Caroline Bichings was
t 'Reestablished favorite here. English opera
' 'owes to her a debt which should insure a
jjionnment to her memory; perpetuating,
' o"t the pitiful tragedy of her death, bnt the
really noble achievements of her life. No
monument is needed, however, to recall to
members of this generation the delights
afforded by the "Bichings" Quartet"
Caroline Bichings, Mrs. Seguin, Castle and
Campbell those are names to conjure with,
even now. Nobody who heard them in he
old days, forgets how delightfully they gave
ns "Martha," and "Maritana," and "Fra
Diavolo and "The Bohemian Girl."
But the adopted daughter of Peter Bich
ings was bereft of the support of her old al
lies. Mrs. Seguin, Castle and Campbell
went over to Parepa Eosa when she organ
ised an English Opera Com pan r, and the
zLt i it.!. .. r i !i! l't. 3 ,
piucnj iuuc nuiuau juiuiHim recraitea ner
little army anew. I do not recall who were
her contralto and her tenor, bat Henri Dray
ion,, a phenomenal baritone, appeared in
'CsniDbeirs old place.
,A week, splendidlymemorable in the mu
sical annals of Pittsburg, came to pass in
the opening season of the tuneful war that
ensued. Both the rival organizations ap
peared here at the same time. The Bich
ings troupe sang at the Opera House; the
other, I believe, at Library Hall, or was it
the Academy of Music? Never before did
Pittsburg experience a week of srfth music
madness as at that time. Managers declared
that no other city in the country would give
to opera companies such eager and enthu
siastic support as the Smoky City gave these
two "com nanies that week. Both houses
were packed to the last inch of standing!
room every alght It ww a musical cam
paign, and party feeling ran high.
On the same night of the week both com
panies gave the old favorite "Martha."
And on that nightmany people bought seats
in both houses, remaining a part of the
evening at one place and then going lo the
other, that there might be a better opportu
nity to judge between the rivals. It was
said that there was an almost complete ex
change or audiences between the two houses
that night Those were times worth remem
-THE TWO PATTIS.
Carlotta Patti, too, awoke enthusiasm
here when she first appeared. There were
times afterward when she was heard at a dis
advantage so far as her audiences were
concerned. But at her best she was one to
rave about "With a voice of marvelous
brilliancy and sweetness, capable of higher
notes than any other singer; with a per
fection of execution almost unrivalled, and
with the best of artistic methods, it needed
only that she should be freed fromher lame
ness to become at least the dangerous rival
of her sister. But Carlotta was lade to
such a degree that it was painful to see her
move across the stage. So Adelina reigned
n nnppn. and holds the ecenter stllL
But Carlotta would be a queen, too, and
she refused to sing in an English provincial
town where she had been announced as "the
sister of the great Adeline Patti." She felt
herself to be the great Carlotta Patti, who
would have made the family name im
mortal if the more fortunate sister had never
been heard of.
As to Adelina Patti, she belongs to the
present as much as to the past, and is not a
subject for reminiscence; although I remem
ber the time of her first appearance in New
Xork, and more years have come and gone
since then thau she would care to count, I
suspect And alter her appearance the
critics scolded her for taking liberties with
her music, and gave her much good advice,
which itis to behopedsheprofitedby. Then.as
now, the past was better than the present;
and Mali bran and Grisi and many more
were casting their shadows upon Adelina
Does anybody now remember Brignoli?
Surely no swetter tenor than he ever thrilled
the smoky air of Pittsburg. In listening to
him one almost forgot that there was any
other kind of melody thau the melody of
his delicious voice. He sang "O Summer
Night," and a winter night seemed impossi
ble. He sang "Good-by, Sweetheart!
Good-by' and who could remember that
the singer had a wife who was none too
happy? He lost his good looks; he became
fat and was not pleasant to look upon; bnt
still his voice maintained its spell, and he
charmed people almost as of old. But not
for long. He became less and less of a real
ity, and then less and less of a memory; and
now there is a whole generation of concert
goers who know nothing whatever about
And Theodore Hableman. He was another
tenor who made Pittsburg captive in days
gone by. He was handsome enongh to make
an evening fairly satisfactory if he had bnt
stood upon the stage without opening his
mouth. But it was no part of his business
to keep his mouth closed. He could sing in
the most ravishing manner, and be could
act well, beside. So, with his handsome
face and figure, his delightful voice and his
dramatic ability, he was very near to being
the ideal operatic tenor. To see and hear
him in "Fra Diavolo" was
SOMETHING TO REMEMBER,
Bnt it was in "La Dame Blanche" that
Pittsburgers seemed to like him best, be
cause in that he sang "Bobin Adair." One
felt, in hearing that song, that nobody else
ought ever to try to sing it. And it may be
doubted if anybody else ever did sing it
quite so perfectly as Hableman sang it
Tnen there was that man with a skyrocket
in his throat Wachtel the man who seemed
to have no top at all to his voice. He came
here heralded by the New York papers as
"the steamwhistle of the gods," and he took
the town by storm the first night He ap
peared here first in "II Trovatore," and be
fore the audience had caught a glimpse of
him he had electrified everybody in the
house. In the serenade behind the scenes he
leaped far aloft with a single clear, piercing
hum; niucu 0CCWCU in uavc wiuga, y rrrga it
soared. No previous Mdnrico had addressed
Leonora in that way and from such a height
The audience caught its breath and broke
into tumultuous applause; and the tuneful
ex-coachman had achieved success before his
hearers had looked upon him.
Bat it was not as Manrico that he created
most enthusiasm. It was as the Postillion
of Lonjumeau, cracking his whip in miracu
lous fashion in perfect time with the rollick
ing, dashing retrain he sang. That was a
mingling of melody and mechanical skill
which captivated everybody.
A man who had been crowned king over
all these, but whose crown had long since
been jostled off by cruel time, came here in
the vain hope of regaining something of bis
former kingly state. Broken in fortune by
some unmerciful disaster, the great Mario
came forth from the seclusion where he had
dwelt among splendid memories, and des
perately strove to win some provision for
his last years. In his prime wealth had
come at his faintest call, and it was hard if
he must now call in vain for bread. But he
heard no echo of the former plaudits from
the audiences he tried to sing for. It was
beyond measure pitiful to hear the poor old
man striving in vain with cracked voice to
make people realize that Mario, one of the
greatest tenors of the world, was singing for
them. It is not a pleasant recollection.
Perhaps, after all. Pittsburg has gained
more enjoyment, taking one year with an
other, from the musical talent at home
within its borders than from the occasional
visits of world-famous singers. Music is at
home here, and -appreciation of it is the
normal state of mind. But it was only with
professional singers that this gossip pro
posed to deal. James C. Puhdy.

ber 27. General Gardner, special , agent,
and D. M. "Wood, the new agent for the
Ponca, Pawnee, Otae and Tonkawa tribes of
Indians,passed through Otae en route to the
Pawnee agency, with $21,500 in hard money
and scrip, with which to pay the Pawnees
their annuity mouey. The train was quite
imposing, with the Indian policemen, three
abreast, riding ahead to clear the road of
lurking banditti. If they had. only had
camels instead of the independent Govern
ment mules, and horses of Pharaoh's lean
kind, we might have thought we were in
Egypt, when Jacob and his family made a
final visit to Joseph. One of the horses
dropped dead on the journey. The poor
thing died in the harness, either from over
driving or exhaustion caused by ill usage on
previous occasions. But it was in good
hands when it passed away to its haven of
rest, and the matter can be easily "fixed up"
with Uncle Sam, whereas, if a subordinate
had been so unfortunate an investigation
would have been necessary. General Heath,
an ex-rebel general, who was an inspector
during the last administration, killed two
horses during a flying trip through this part
of- the country. He received a telegram to
report as quickly as possible at two certain
points. He reported, but horseflesh and
Government money paid the penalty.
General Gardner is only a special agent
now, bat wants his old place as inspector.
He will have that or nothing, he says. He
is the best inspector in the Indian service.
He is rather rough and uncouth in his man
ner, but frank, honest and outspoken. He
is no respecterof persons; dealingout justice
without regard to party, friends or any in
fluence they may possess. Not so with some
others who" seem to have sympathetic ears
for all the ladies' troubles and trials, and
who will allow themselves to be buttonholed
by them, magnify trivial affairs into moan
tains, give verdict accordingly, thereby
causing great disturbance sometimes.
One of these nice, pliable inspectors
who agrees with you in everything, then
agrees with your adversary in the same man
ner; one of these "yes, yes" men in speaking
of the qualifications of an Indian school su
perintendent said: "Shouldn't he have a
sweet, amiable disposition?" "Certainly
he should, but accompanied by grit"
There is such a thing as
A corps of disinterested, lazy employes
will not improve the sweet, amiable dispo
sition of an interested, zealous, energetic
superintendent He will occasionally dis
play the indignation of a Moses. And if
there is one place above another to try
men's souls, and women's, too, it is
to be in an Indian school and be interested
and see such a neglect and shirking of work
by some of the employes. The governing of
the Indian children very often is but a drop
in the bucket compared with the control
ling of the employes. But this is only the
case where there is a lack of interest and
real love for the elevation of this people.
The Pawnees have 1376,000 for the sale of
their lands in Nebraska invested in United
States bonds and in other securities, on
which they receive annually S per cent in
terest Then they have $14,000 accrued
interest, besides $10,000 appropriated r by
Congress. The. tribe is decreasing fast: In
1885 there were 1,380; to-day tbey number
but 762. At this rate, unless they soon be
come civilized sufficient to take their lands
in severalty and attend to the disbursement
of their own money, the conscience fund in
the United States Treasury will be largely
The $21,500 they received will be equally
divided, the babies receiving as much as
their fathers and mothers. The trains of
Pawnee wagons en route to Arkansas City
will join the innumerable caravans of dis
gusted boomers, and the road will be kept
dusty and (he school children's necks
stretched to see the sights as they pass,
equal to a circus almost The trader's
store will reap some oi the harvests of the
$21,500, but the greater part of it will be
deposited with the Arkansas City mer
chants, who will be very accommodating
with "John" and his dusky wife and babies.

LITTLE INDIAN TOPEES.
At the close of the recitation the question
was asked how many in the room had tasted
whisky or alcohol? Seventeen boys and five
irls raised their hands. "How many have
een drunk?" was asked. Five boys raised
their hands. The question seemed to weigh
upon their minds, for as I passed through
the dining room several hours later one of
the large girls called to me and told me very
confidentially that little Katie Carson was
drunk the same time John De Boin "was.
The children are not to blame. It is given
to them by their parents, and their parents
are not wholly to blame, it is sold to them in
a prohibition town by mean white men. The
root of the trouble lies'at the door of this
civilization we are offering to them. "We
