It is my conviction thai the greatest

has not the sacied love of the artistic

said: 'Wo cannot rIvo out more than

l'adoiowskl's opera had been re
ported but meiiRrely by Amcilcans. but
the few who have been so fortunate
as to hear it, found li decidedly Inter
esting. The first act, with the gypsy
music and dnnces, Is full of life, color
and "go." The dances are every bit
as bewlU'liIng as the dance element Is
In "Carmen." In the next act comes
a delicious touch of tenderness in the
cradle song, t'nsslonale declamation,
supported by an orchesli.tilon as full,
suggestive nnrt vigorous as "Wagner's

"Wo have seen Paderewskl's orchestra

In "Manru" he hat realized the
dream of modern opera, and produced
a work conceived in motifs and orches

This Is what Italy. France und Ger

Is so much talk about genius, but the
only genius worth having Is this love
for the gieat and beautiful, coupled
with undying perseverance and labor.
"Then you think everybody cannot
learn to sing'.'"
"Certainly not; even those persons en
dowed with really wonderful voices aie
often-limes failures. While I do not
underrate the value of a good, natural
voice, yet T think little or It unless It Is
coupled with temperament and a cer
tain elevation of mind. Voice develop
ment and character building ought to
go hand In hand. Mediocre voices veiy
often reveal unexpected possibilities,
because of tho development of strong
chaiacterand deep mentality. In my
opinion, every pupil in singing should
have a degiee of general culture. 1
shall never forgot Marchesl's llrst
question to me, when she asked per

her what two nru to the acrago per

the history of this section, as well an
of the nation. Uf people wen- Impov
erished and sulfered Impartially, as
both the Unionists and Confedetates
held sway. Tho country surrounding
Knoxvllle hud served as a chesslioaid,
where in turn the antagonistic forces
played their opposing patts. The de
vastation and desolation was univer

befuie had been one of pleasing land

mountains, wan blasted by the touch
of ilorce contending armies, Hut 1'hoe-nlx-lllu',

tho center of the great valley of Kast
Tennessee, on the direct line from the
mountain sap on the south, to tho low

and most excellent lallroad connections
in eveiy dlioctlon. It la built, upon
gently sloping hills, In the center of one
of the ilncst agricultural and glazing
countries In the country; also one of
the best tinibeieil regions In America
and one of the i idlest mineral regions,
surtounded on all sides by mineral
springs -a hose medicinal waters are
sought arter every year by thousand1
from other states of the union. It is
located In a most healthful purt of th"
valleys, and in ovety point Is one of i
the moHt favored spots in mo mountain-shielded
valley, .whose salubrious
cllmato luiH made It famous through
out tho world.

Xestlea among the loftiest peaks of
the Southern Appalachian chain of
mountains, "where the blue hills blend
with the azure heaven, where the white
clouds aie born" In the so-called "Land
of the Sky," Is one of the most popular
or, America's health resorts, whose
fame Is only second to that of Ashe
ville. From the early part of this
century, it has been known as a south
ern wateilng place, but until 1S00, It
was not made available as a resort
throughout the year. The Mountain
Paik hotel and now bath bouses weie
then built, and the resources of the
pioperty developed. The property com
prises nearly 4,000 acres.'and few places
In this country today, offer such at
tractions as a health and ronmntle
pleasure resort. We found It an Ideal
place for icst, or recuperation, after a
tour of four thousand miles in the low
lands and prairies or "Southland." The
scenery about Hot Springs Is unsur
passed In beauty and rugged grandeur
and pleturesqueness. These mountains
are famous for the beautiful pictures
they atford. This region may be truly
called "The Switzerland of America."
The springs are numerous and flow
from the ground at temperatures
ranging from 9tS to 110 degrees. Over
some of them bath houses have been
erected and the natural thermal water
fio.w.i Into largo marble pools, each
nine feet long, hy six feet wide and
five feet deep, so the bather gets all
tho benefit of the natural heat and the
mineral and gaseous qualities of ths
water the usual temperature pre
scribed by physicians. There are six
teen separate pools, all lined and floored
with polished marble. These bathing
facilities are unexcelled. These waters
are especially efficacious In cases ot
stubborn rheumatism, or gout, kidney
and liver troubles: also wonderful In
cases of nervous troubles and Insom
nia. Tho analysis shows tho water to ,
