can artist. The Joy of heating bar ma?
jestic voice, it Is true. Is shared by
bctfl Europe and this country. Nor
Is she American by birth or in her
beginnings. As a girl of seventeen,
she won recognition In Dresden witti
the familiar "Brindisi" from "Lucretia
Borgia" and renown In later years at
Hamburg, Balreuth. Berlin and \*>n
don before she ever came to Amer?
Mme. Schumann-Heinle seems to be?
long to tRls country because she is
rearing her children as Americans, ani
is doing her best to become one her?
self. It Is this fact that places her
I In a class by herself. It colors and
: dominates everything that can be
said of her.
There Is another point that must
j always be remembered in drawing the
I picture of this famous contralto. The
singer is all she seems to be?a big
hearted, ger.lal. generous artist and
mother. These two things count for
more than anything else in telling of
Mme. Schumann-Heink outside of the
opera house and concert rooms. All
her friends talk as If she lives for
her art and her home.
The singer's home is called Villa
Fides. It Is at Singac, N. J.. on the
Little Kails Turnpike, eight miles from
Patersoa. The house stands on a
slope and Is surrounded by seventy
five acres of land. The rubble founda?
tions and the porch are covered with
Vina*. Beyond sire gardens and a
j stable with six horses, a garage with
two automobiles, five dogs, fowls and
la donkey. In the house the large low
studded rooms are decorated with suits
'of mail. Indian curios and photographs,
autograph letters and testimonials from
KrOsts and princes.
Here the great singer spends every
moment she oan spare, playing the
role of a model German-American
housewife, with her linen chest and
cooking, her gardens and live stock.
Above all else. "Madame," as they call
her, is like Cornelia of the Roman
fable. Her chief treasures are her
eight children. The two younger ones,
Goorge Washington Schumann-Heink
and Marie Teresa Schumann-Heink. are
as much Americans as the nag that
flies on the lawn every day In thi
year. It Is the spell of this home
and these children that drew the home?
sick mother from Lincoln. Neb., one
day a few years ago. She made the
Journey of 1.500 miles, and took a
night ride over eight miles of coun?
try roads to surprise the sleeping
youngsters with her kisses and het
arms about their necks, and a few
hours later left to fulfill an engage-1
ment in St- Paul. Minn., thirty-sis
A prominent writer said recently:
"American audiences are In love with
the singer. Mme. Schumann-Heink, as
she is so thoroughly democratic and,
so kind-hearted: she is 95 per cent
heart. Hence, her concert tour la a
aeries of cvations." ,
Few musical, operatic and histrionic
stars of Continental Europe ever]
learn that language so as to speak
really good English, no matter howj
frequent their lucrative professional
tours of England and America mayj
be. Two brilliant exceptions to this
general rule are the actress Mme. Nazi-i
mova. and the greatest of all contraltol
singers. Mme. Schumann-Heink. Of!
the latter, the critic Of the Evening
Mall said: I
"The great prlma donna Justified her
claim to being an American citizen by'
her remarkable diction and pronuncia?
tion in the group of songs by Amerl-I
can composers which she sang wi?h
evident zest and Infinite beauty.* She
was In splendid form and the luscious
quality and exquisite beauty Justified
the great enthusiasm."
