The Shrewd Financial Methods of the
Adelina Patti never suffered from
tho fmancial timidity of a jenny Lind.
Not only was she a supreme vocalist:
but. as Colonel Mapleson renarked.
"no one ever a.pproached her in the nrt
of obtaining from a nianager the
greatest l ;sible sum he could by any
possiblitty contrive to pay." But the
musical miracle was the spoiled dar
in-g of her day, and she never failed
to obtain exactly what she wanted
She was first engaged !n land.-u in
1,G1 by Mapleson to s!ng four nights
"on approval" and in case of uccess
to obtain 40 a week. This contract
was not fulfilled. however, for. Dein;
hard pressed financially. she had bor

her receipt proved practically a con

rareer so dazzling that its successive
steps are simply a series of increasing
banknotes. In Is72 she (bltailned in

$M.000 for paynent olf the last ten
perfornminces-Patti's favorite device.
She thus received abicat twenty times
what Mario and Grisi got.
Her private car incidentally cost
$O.000 and contained a silver bath
and gold keys to the doors. to say

among the poorer music lovers to buy

one orerstayed his time he paid for
the entire ticket. Some mathematicians
computed by dividing the number of
notes sung by the sum paid that In

for each note. This was found to h?

enter until the half hour is up.
This half hour is deducted from his
wages. but in addition he has also to
pay to the treasurer of the Lazy club
about 5 cents for coming late.
If he is late more than once or so
during a week everybody is aware of
the fact. and the second or-third time
