MME. CALVE AND HER PROTEGE
Fortunate of 14-Tear-Old Edna Daren, of
Los Anreles. CaL
There are some things better than
to be born with a silver spoon in one's
mouth. One of these is to be born
with a great gift and then, just at
the right moment, to have a fairy
In this story Edna Darch, of Los
Angeles, is the good little girl and
Calve capricious, captivating, quick
pulsed Calve is the fairy godmother,
The Darches are poor, but Edna
has a voice, and Mme. Calve has prom
ised to see that she has a future. In
other words. Calve is to do for the
child what her parents would gladly
du for her if they could have her
voice trained by the best masters and
fit her for the operatic stage. More
than this. Calve herself will take her
for a time under her own tuition.
And it has all hnpjenel so suddenly
and unexpectedly that Edna Darch
feels as though she were afraid to
open her eyes wide lest she find she
ha.s been asleep and it was only a
She knows how that feels, for she
tried it once just the night "before
she sang for Calve. She had dreamed
that Xordica heard her sing and hftd
taken her away to Europe and made
her a great artist. .lust as she was
singing, with all the world at her
feet, she woke up.
Do you believe in dreams?" asked
her -older sister when Edna told her
of the beautiful dream.
"Xo. But I wish they came true.
Even then, unknown to the child, a
letter had been 'written to Calve ask
ing her to hear Edna sing.
Xot that Ednas teacher hoped for
anything more than a word of praise
that might be used to advertise a
benefit concert which it was pro
posed to give in January to help a lit
tle with the exjense of music lessons.

itors, and that she should take time
to listen to an aspiring child singer
was almost a vain hoje. But Edna
had a teacher who knew that her pu
pil was a genius and for more than a
venr her one wish had been that the
child should sing for a truly great
Something in the letter struck a
chord in Calve's warm heart. She
consented and on the very day of

Edna Darch. in a plain little eottm
frock, with a voice that faltered just
the least with excitement, sang for
the great song goddess, the unrecog
nized fairy godmother.
"Beautiful, ravishing, magnificent.
whispered the artist- ns the child
sang. It took but one look from the
deep, wonderful eyes of the diva to
tell the child that all was well, that
the soul of the other understood.
After the song there were more
hugs and kisses and more adjectives.
And then all in a moment Calve
made her plans. She must take Edna
with her, tench her, have her study
and hear other great artists and
have pretty frocks and furs out
simple, mind you. for la petite. And
then Paris, and then the work!.
Xo wonder the child blinked hard
and pinched herself to make sure she
was really awake.
Edna Darch has always loved music
always lived for it.
When a baby, tied in her little ruck-
ng chair and left to amuse herself.
she sang and sang, rolling her eyes
far back and rocking vigorously to
help make the high notes come.
Her mother had the love of music
and an ear for it without the knowl-
dge of it, and her father had a voice.
Edna's gift was a natural one, and
when she wan old enough until par
ents meant that she should have the
best help they could give her.
But' the best is not to be had for
he Ienst money and it was not until
a family friend came to the rescue
with nn open purse that Edna could
have instruction worthy of her art.
For a jenr or two she studied only
for piano, but that other longing
would not cease. Still she must sing,
stretching her voice from its highest
o its lowest pitch.
Then, when she was nearly l, sne
began to study voice culture wun
Miss Elizabeth Carrick. There were
no more wild, unstudied bursts of

In those days Edna was restless
and unhappy, but she obeyed her
eacher. Yet the music must out and
the child would shut herself ' away in
room and whistle until her over
burdened soul found relief.
When she went back to her lessons
again her tones were rounder, fuller,
more mature. But now she must not
go higher than E, with an occasional

Xot -only must Edna thank Miss
Carrick for her first training, but for
this great opportunity that has come
to her. Had the teacher. known less
of the value of Edna's voice she might
still be working hard to play and sing
for- a recital which at most would
bring her but $25. It was really Miss
Carrick who discovered this em
burylonic artist. A year ago she had
the child sing for Damrosch and the
great interpreter of Wagner praised
And now before leaving the home
where she had worked so hard for her
art Edna is busy and happy as a bird.
