Every one who visited the Actors'

is sweet as music, who presided over

It was a triumph of womanly beauty
l Laura Schtrmer-Mapleson. She had
ilready captured the hearts of the muslc
lovlng world with her singing, and she
received all the homage paid to her like
i centle aueen.
Laura Schlrmer was born In Bos
ton When still only a little girl
she became known us a phenomenal
planlste. At the age of soven years she
made her professional debut In this city
it Chlckerlng Hall, plating several dlfll
clt piano bolos and singing some of the
Mngs of Schubert and .Mendelssohn. A
little later her mother took her to
Europe, where she became the pupil of
the masters in 'turn, studying singing,
harmony and pianoforte playing.
Iteturnlng to her native land, Miss
Schlrmer made a pronounced success at
Hoion s Globe Theatte In Auber's "I,es
Dlamants de la Couronne." After a
fries of concerts In Boston, New ork
anrl Philadelphia, she again went abroad,
and after studying In Milan, made her
debut at l'isa, Feb. H, 188), as Lucia,
with complete success
In Mllau she met and was married to
Arthur Hyron, a well-known tenor. She
aftervv arils sang her way to the hearts
of the people In the leading cities of Ger
many, Italy and Hussla. She sang be
fore the crowned heads of these coun
tries, and In Turkey she enslaved Sultnn
Abdul Hamld II.. and Was appointed
court Blnger to tho Imperial Ottoman
Court at a fabulous salary.
This all came about through the mis
fortune that befell her and her husband.
The Impressarlo who had engaged them
became bankrupt, and the Sultan, who
had heard of the great beauty of the
' Boston girl and her artistic successes,
commanded her to appear and entertain
t his court. Ily his orders she was com-
relied to sing and to dance. The climax
,i as reached when, after having sung
and waltzed herself out of breath, she
given a piece of music and told by
the Grand Vlzer to sing It In Turkish.
She had fortunately learned enough
Jf the languugc, to be able to obey, and
he Sultan was beside himself with de
light He ordered that she be paid 10,000
