BIOGRAPHICAL SKETCH OF EVELYN
F. Weber Denton. In St. L.mia MiiRizlno.l
Evelyn Spyer, the only daughter of Dr.
and Mrs. Jos. Spyer of St. Louis, attained
the age of niue ou the twenty-seventh day
of August, 1873. Hemarbable about this
little child is the extraordinary talents with
which she is endowed. When but two
months old her parents removed to Hio
Janeiro, Brazil, where she learned the
Spanish language. At little less than six
years of agohe riturned to her native city
Sh Louis, and in a tew weeks time spoke
tho English language, as fluently as other
childretj 8f ht-r own years that had lived in
litis jountry nil their lives. From that
time dates the extraordinary development
of her wonderful faculties. She became fond
of reading, and unusual for one s. youug,
expressed a preference for the works of
Shakespeare, which amounted t; a passion.
H'jrrctuitive memory was even more won
derful; one or two readings sufficed to fix
in her mind every word as it appeared iu
print, and her unaided interpretation ex
pressed a clear and comprehensive idea of
the authors conception exhibited in her
rendition oj numerous selections in public,
the first of whieh took pimp in Kirkwood,
Mo., when she was a little over six years of
age. The occasion was a literary tntertaii)
meht. for'whirh Jtmit ho recited "Tho
Dying Alchemist." The effect which she
produced u;vm th.i atulier.co wss marvel
lous. She appeared upon the stage with
confidence and self-poss 's-don becoming one
a life-time in the dramatic profession, ami
her gestures, accompanied by appropriate
taciai expression, nnd a voiou ot superior
power aiding a brilliant interpretation,
electrified her hearers and astonis!i:;d them
beyond, in .-asure. Her personal attractions
are in accord with her mental endowments,
nnd contribute much to tho beauty and
grace of her acting. Her features are fault
l"ssly. sym-'tical, of a rare type and very
f.iir. A luxuriant growth of very light
brown hair falls gracefully over the shoul
ders and down the back ;nff irdi fig aeurtain
against which the clear cut profile of tin
fair fc:' stands out in happy r.dief. In di
rect, yet ever pleasing contrast tern large,
dark eyes, in which rest volumes of ex
pression, shaded by long lashes and
heavy, ih.vp black eye-brows, curved in
that exquisite line of beauty that claims the
admiration of the nrti:;t. There is an un
delinablc fascination about her face; the
keen yet merry glitter of her eyes, the
swe.-t, amiable expression of her mouth and
the bright animation of the entire face, en
hanced ley a naturally happy disposition,
are charms' rarely centered collectively in
one person. Thus, every attribute essential
to a great actress, is coml'ined in this little
girl. She has never received the slightest
instruction in elocution, and her proficiency
in tho art can onlv be attributed to i.d-
vanccd powers of reason and fineness of
perception invested in her by nature alone.
Her articulation is clear, penetrating and
distinct, and her delivery is vivid pictur
ing the scenes in the subject clearly nnd
comprehensively, holding the spectators
spell-bound and entranced, who almost im
agine they see tht! reality before them. In
fact, when thus eniruged she is oblivious of
all exterior things. She enters with great
spirit and enthusiasm in her work; forget
ting, for the time, that she is merely por
traying an tminiat 'tl scene, and that she is
not an iiciual participant therein.-
During th ) time years that have elapsed
since her lirst apperauce in pub ic she has
received many invitations to partake in en
tertainments i i (irmiintie character, and
having compli'il; proved herself on each
occasion, th" l-M.iing attraction and won
fresh prais-s I'i vi
:h press and people,
is wide spread. The

and that "powers ot personation promise tr

In addition to the other features of
precocity she is a polished conversational-'

and is as entertaining in the same, as moi
of the matured members of society. In a
recent conversation, within the hearing ot
the writer, she gavo her opinion,, which had
btfci solicited, upon different forms of liter
ature; enlarging upon the beauties of
thought nod sentiment expressed in tho
works of her favorite authors, while she ex
plained her non-preference for other writers.
Her imagination, also, is vivid, and she pos

suitable and pleasing language not, of

Sheciai.r.s that reading in the best edu
cator, and where a mind is c:ipnb!o of com
prehending that which is written, the
knowledge thereby is more readily ncquirvd
and retaiued. "Dull facts," she says, "ar
pleasant to no one, but connected with
pleasing incidents, they lose their diragree
able features. That is why I like histories',
novels. One obtains the knowledge in
merely reading a pretty story, which is both
pleasant and profitable."
As previously stated, she is passionately
fond ofreading Shakespeare's tragedies, am!
through the aid of her wonderful memory,
is enabled to recite long extracts from many
of them. She can repeat "King John" en-'
tire without the prompter's aid, as also the
bins in the characters of "Juliet" urn?
"Pauline." On several occasions she hu t
rendered the Potion scene of "Konieo ttm'
Juliet," with marked ability and surprising
correctness. Her repertoire of recitation
for thy entertainments in which ' she hsn
taken part during the past few months,
with the exception of those mentioned, con

the ever popular "Charge of tho Light Bri -gade,"
"The Polish Boy," "Sheridan'
Hide," "The Haven," "The Miser Fitly
Punished," "The Poet's Mind." etc., in l"l
of which she seemed perfect.
