Considerable nmusement was excited
in musical and society circles at Pitts
burg, by tho three morning papers ap
pearing with extravagant eeoniuins of
the vocalization of Annie lionise (Jury,
of Mapleson's company, in "II Trova
tore," on tho previous evening. Tho
critics fairly gushed over her singing,
and were horrified when they ascertain
ed that, owing to a Midden attack of
illness, Miss Cary had been unable to
appear, and that her part had been
filled by one of the chorus slivers.

tho purpose of locating her (laughter
Cora, in a school, anr arranging for
the future care of a littlo Mexican irirl
whom she had jn charge. Mrs. Ray
has a history, which, if published, would
read like a romance. She has dug in

houses, took in wadiing from the Lead-
vine miners, ami is to-day in possession
of a fortune that, pays her an income of

A reporter paid her a call as she sat
in a central palace car waiting for the
train to .jtart. He found her occupy
ing a seat, facing her daughter Cora,
and around her war, piled numerous
bundles of 1 11 '"'aire. She pvoressml
herx lt as glad to grant an interview,
and pleasantly said: "Sit, down there
by Cora and I will talk with you." Cora
is a handsome girl of about 17 summers,
and as she assented to the proposition
the reporter did not deliberate, but
readily took a seat by tier hjde.
Mrs. Ray coininenred by saying, with
a hearty laugh: " Now I'm'norgoing

and she went to Leavenworth, Kan.,
from thence to Denver, and finally in

ried a miner named Frank Ray, but he
died soon after.
She told how in Leadville she braved
the dangers and storms of winter be

Her career has been a peculiarly
eventful and exciting one, and one that
would bear a more extended notice than

a daily paper. She grew eloquent as

eyes sparkled as she said:
