Made Her Debut
When Only Nine.
Mile. Gcnev's career reads almost like
a romance. She was Just sixteen when
the Intendant of tho Rojal Opera House
at Berlin engaged her as the premlero
dunseuse, to succeed Ualbo, who was at
that time one of the most celebrated
danecrs In tho world. That took place
not so many years ago, either, as Genee
Is still In her twenties. This gifted girl
wns born In Denmark, and made her
debut when she was nlno years of age.
In Clirlstlanla, Norway, and her success
wus food for gossip throughout Scan

food for conversation all oer tho Euro

Then followed the exciting experience

ONCE upon a time thero was a
Queen to whom tho stork
brought a little daughter.
Tho King, however, wanted
a llttlo son, and when the Queen saw
the llttlo girl sho was afraid to show it
to the King.
So sho took it to an old witch who
lived In a cave a long way inside u
mountain, and asked her to take care of i
her baby girl and bring It up to be a1
The witch was a very good witch, and
sho grew very fond of tho little girl.
She named her Stella and she taught
her to be a good girl as well as wise,
so that when Stella grew up she could
read tho fortunes of many people in the
Now, the Queen always visited the
witch once a year, for she loved her
baby and only gavo It up through fear
of doing her harm. When she saw how
beautiful Stella grew each year sho
tried to think of some way she could
hac her daughter near her and not
ha o tho King know It w as his daughter.
By and by the King grew old and he
was afraid tho stork would not bring
him a son, so he sent for a distant rela-
tlve who had a son and gave him a bag
of gold to let him adopt his Bon. Tho
relative consented and tho King mado
the son a Prince and his heir.
When tho Prince becamo a man the
King said to him one day: "I havo not
long to live and I want to see you set
tled In life before I die. Go out over
the country and find a wlfo who Is
suited to bo your Queen und ring her
So the Prince started out, but before
he left the castle the Queen said to him:
"Go to the mountain on the opnoslto
side of the woods from here and you
win nnd a cave, in this cave lives a
good witch and her daughter; tho
daughter can read our fate In the
stars; consult her; It may help you find
a wife "
The Queen thought If the Prince saw
the beautiful girl ho might fall In love
with her, so she hurried off to the cavo
herself b a shorter route, and took
with her a beautiful dress
"Put on this " sho told Stella; "the
Prince Is coming to ou to have his
fortune read In tho sturs. It Is fitting
that ou should be dressed properly to
recele him, but do not tell him I hao
Slellu promised she would not tell the
Prince of the Queen's visit, and then
she put on the dress. It was made of
sllcr and trimmed with gold lace, and
when Stella's hair fell over her shoul
ders In golden curls she was more beau
tiful than ever.
"He will surely fall In loe with her."
said the Queen, when she beheld her
daughter, but Stella did not know how
beautiful she was. because there was no
mirror In the cave, and sho hud never
been told of her beauty.
Bv and bv the Prince nnd hta .v-
ants came riding to the cave and called
tor tho witch and her daughter.
When ho beheld Stella he got off his
horse, and, taking oft his hat, he bent
low before her. "Can It be that you are j
the daughter of a witch?'" he asked
when they wero alone, "lou look more,
like the daughter of a King "
But Stella only blushed and hung her
head, she rcallv did not know what ho
meant, but to have a young and hand
some man speak to her was something
that had never happened before.
She found she was disappointed when
she began to read his fate, for the
stars told he he would marry a Klng'o
daughter and that he would not go far
to find her. The Prince had fallen In
