kind Peter Paul wai apparently Im
patient. So far as the lueient writer known
the famouy painter never tialned down
his Ideal of feminine beauty but unce, j
anil that wa when he drew the outline
of Mary MaKdalen In the "Dement from
the Cross." The eminent nrtlM seems
to have discovered ut that moment some
vague apprehension that other people
would rind n fat .Mutrdalen lacking In
the power of conviction. For stmllur
reasons It would be quite Impossible to j
conceive a iai Cleopatra.
The Cleopatra women are never fat.
The serpent of old Nile was nurely not
a boa. constrictor. She was somethltiK
small and sinuous and cllnKlnif. like her
own fatal asp. Helen of Troy may have
been a bit heavier, because an fur lis one
can discover she belonged to the placid,
receptive type of woman: She- did
nothing, she thought nothing. She Just
at by the marge of the sweet blue
.Hgcan, and men made fools of them
selves because of her bovine beauty.
She caused 11 very Njr disturbance In
Asia Minor, but she was not an active,
agent In the affair.
Cleopatra, on the other hand, was al- 1
ways In the centie of the tne. She ,
was beloved of two Romans In her time,
one great and one tunnll. The lilK one
loved lier a." he pleaded and dispensed
with lier when .she seemed l.kely to in.
terfero. with IiIh plans. The little one
perished in the chains of his (utile pas
sion. He carried the woman down with
him. to be sure, but In her death she'
towered above him. even ns he did In
her life. ,
The Alexandrian Thais certainly could
not have been fat. The thliiK Is out of
the question. Athanael would never
have given her a second thought If she
had revealed herself ns n vampire welsh
ing ISO pounds. Vnmplres cannot welsh
so much. One misht ramble on thus for
aevernl columns, flitting from Ninon to
Adellna I'.itti and never once recalling
a hewltehor of the human raco who
made the earth tremble beneath an ele
So Sir. Amiito was tight when he de
clared that the stage was no plnce for
a fat pel son. Only the realm of farce
,ia open to a fat man, while as for a
woman the simulation of youth Is
barred from her the moment she loses
the flovserllke slenderness of her figure.
Now what a number of times we opera
goers me forced to dtaden our imagina
tions or actually to close our eyes! If
wo care at all for an illusion, and some
of us Hie fooMsh enough to do so, we
must not look at many of the singers.
We must heni them. They are not like
little children, who should be seen and
not heard; iult the reverse.
' Mr. Amato bewailed the fact that a
(at singer could create, no illusion.
Alas, that the too solid flesh would
melt! True Indeed It Is that when a
Butter Hu measures 40 around tho bust
or a Girl palpably weighs over ISO, Illu
sion hides Its head anil leaves only Idle
regret In full sway.
There seems to be no remedy, or at
least one would suppose that thero were
none. The present writer once asked
a very plump prima donna why sho did
not do something to get rid of the su
perfluity. Her answer was to the ef
fect that the thing was not practicable.
"Wo cannot take exercise In all sorts
e weather as other people can, because
we catch cold. Our work takes a good
deal out nf -us and wo become very
hungry, especially ns wo havn to sing
without eating. The result Is that' when
the opera Is over wo havo very vig
orous appetites, and so we take on flesh
'in splto of ourselves,"
It does reem hard, does it not? Hut
there are, sceptics who (all to bo con
vinced by this particular line or argu
ment. In the first place most of the
opera singers clothe themselves too
heavily and thereby Invite colds to come
and eaten tncm. tr tney would cease
to wrap themselves up In heavy coats,
and moat of all stop swathing their
throats In protective (urs or scarfs,,
they would be less susceptible.
A (or going out, the surest way to
, keep In good condition Is to forget that
there Is such a prohibition on outdoor,
xercbe aa weather. The singer should
Areee (or the weather and then go out
aaA take a -brisk walk In It. Further
BMP, thero ore plenty of fine Indoor
exercise which are best taken with the
wlndowa thrown wide open.
Fresh air and exercise ran thus ba
had at the same tlmt. Almost any
teacher of physical culture can ahes
too stout person how to reduce flesh
not only without Injury but with great
benefit to the general health. The
meana aomctlmea employed by alngere
Every one on the auge wishes or
ought to wish to look young. Any one

she looke old enough to be Its mother
or not. The one thing which Is sure to
make her look too mature la (at.
So Mr. Atniito Is rlht. "Nobody
loves 11 (at man." A (at woman has
even a poorer chance. Oh. (or a dream

"LVr Koseuknvnller," the new opera
of Richard Strauss, is to be produced
at the Metropolitan Opera House on
Tuesday evening. This work evoked a
vast amount of discussion when It was
levelled In Oermany, tun there Is room
for doubt that It will arouse n tumult
of comment here That, however. Is a
matter whlrh will better be considered
after the first performance. At this
time nil that l necessary W a word of

The best possible preparation for en
joyment of the work Is a reading of the
libretto. The story Is rather (lalllc
Hum Teutonic, for it revels In situations
which are usually described as risky.
In thoso days such tlilnga are accepted
aa matters of course and the liberal
display of beds will probably shock
none but the very delicate.
The principal ihumor of tho drama
arises from tho dlscomftturo of a pom

They break up the effect which tha

they disturb the minority who know
perhaps eomcthlng about what la going

Some musical performers have tried
tho experiment of giving their concerts
In smalt theatres. Usually they do not
confess to the truth. They tell us that
they chouse these auditoriums because
they ure better suited to the sort o(
music which la to be given. Undoubt
edly In some cases this Is true. Hut
one artist took the trouble the other
day to write to the recorders o( the
dally press and tell them that his con
cert was going to take place In a
theatre solely because he did not wish
to have to distribute (ree tickets. Us
believed tlmt tho entertainment whldh
he had to offer would Interest enough
persons to malio an audience In a
email theatre- and not enough to maka
one for a large hall,
Now in tho amuuement world the
deadhead Is a firmly established Insti
tution. Tlvs theatrical managers long
ago laid down tho principle that no play
could bo made a success without an au
dience. The presence of a few persona
scattered through ainudltorlum creates
a chill atmosphere which no dramatlo
eloquence can overcome. Furthermore
a few peraons ulways behave as if they
were afraid to make a noise lit a thea
tre and equally in a concert room. In
the course of a short time a Quaker
meeting seems to be In progress and
the play or the song recital goes gently
Therefore It may be by no meant a
bad Ideu to give certain concerts In
small places, because If the artist can
atll the whole S00 or 400 seata, there la
general warmth, and no one la afraid
to applaud. Happiness reigns supreme
and tha newspaper chroniclers depart
with their fountain pens already drip
ping tha words "great success," What
an Inspiring expression! Think how
noble it looks when quoted the follow
ing week In the out of town papers!
On the other hand and here la the
sharp point If the concert giver can
sell only 75 or 100 seats he may aa well
give hla entertainment In a large hall,
All It up with deadheads and appear to
have a auccaaa. At any rate thla la the
point of view of some musical managers
