AN INTERVIEW WITH AN ARTISTE.
Florence St. John, m London Mnt .-. in
harden. Herself to The New York Sua.
Miss Florence 8t. John, the English singer,
does not like it because her managers won't
let what she speaks be printed as she says it.
But Miss St. John for once got the start ot
her managers. She was interviewed by a
reporter of The New York Stm and, strange
to say, got in her sentiments exactly as she
made them. "They all ask me if I like
America better than England," the said to
The Sun scribe.
"And. of course, I say I do not, for, though
1 may learn to love
much, England is
my home. But the
next day doeau't
the paper say that
I love America
best, aud when 1
ask my manager to
explain that he
says, 'Ob, that's all
right. You don't
want to offend any
body, you know,
and they thought
it best for you to
put it that way.
You must be care
ful what you say.'
But why must I be
careful, and why
FLORC.NCB ST. JOHN.
.an't I aay that I love my home best?"
Now isn't this too bad.
Tlicu the interviewer asked hor: "What
predominant American characteristics do
Whereupon she said something which, if it
.lidn't make th American woman's ears burn,
they must be Shade of Are brick ;
"Oh, curiosity and hurry more than any
thing else. Why, they are regular Paul Prys,
all of them. 1 am introduced to a lady, and
he looks me all over from my feet up, and
when she has fluisbed she knows just how old
I am, aud What 1 have on, and bow much it
cost, and all that. The other day I stood for
a moment looking at some pictures of Mrs
Keudal in a window, and a lady recognize 1
tne, went back to tell her two friends behind
her, mid then they all three stood and dis
cussed my costume in a sufficiently loud tone
for mo to hear."
And this about their dress:
"They told me American woman were such
good dressers, but I have faded as yet to see
the well dressed American lady, for directly
they are handsomely dressed they are simply
French women. There seems to be no Amer
ican style of dress; everything comes from
Paris. You could quickly detect an English
woman in Paris, but an American would
scarcely be distinguished from the French
women. Tbey are so dreadfully frightened
of unbending, and they live so much ou what
other people may think of them, that tbey
freece up such a Bohemian as I am until I
am not myself.
"The other day I was introduced to one,
and she took me all in with that sweeping
glance of hers my eyes, my teeth, my hair,
my very soul and after a long time she said
she would like to know my thoughts, and I
almost laughed in her face."
Perhaps the lady to whom she refers may
take a little comfort tn knowing those
thoughts if she happens to peruse this article.
"There's just oue thing more I notice, and
that u the little slow drawl in speech. Now
thc-y call mo S-a-i-n-t John. What's the use
in being all the morning in saying a name.
Run it all together aud call me "Sinjin" aud
be done with it aud ready for something
else. Why, when they ask me a question I've
got it ail answered in my mind, and have
forgotten what it was before tbey finish it. "
The Americau naturally wouders how
Englishmen pronounce St. John the Evange
list and St. John the Baptist. Do they call
them Sinjin the Evangelist and Sinjin the
But here is a novelty, indeed. The pro
verbial stupidity of an Englishman tn catch
ing the meaning of a joke seems to exist
everywhere except in England. What must
be Brother Jonathan's dullness if he is behind
his cousin in this respect?
"You are very much alower to catch a Joke
than the English, and laugh much less heart
ily. I can always count one, two, three after
a joke before any one laughs, and if the fun
ia a little broad the ladies look all around to
see if any one is going to smile, aud by that
time the men are laughing, so, under cover ot
It, they titter a little. The play on wortis and
puns do not seem to amuse tbem at all, and I
have to wait so long for the laugh after I
sing, 'Don't follow me where I live; that is a
thing 1 cant forgive,' that I wish for ham
mers to pound it Into their heads with. Then
the applause is so much leas spontaneous
and hearty that I dont know an encore when
1 get one, and have to be sent on by some one
else. I fancy the Americans consider us as
sort of interlopers, and dont like us very well
anyway. I feel their lack of sympathy very
Miss 8injin, you are giving your English
sisters away. It seems that they laugh openly
with the men at the "broad" parts. That
isn't nice of them at all. It's very naughty.
Miss tit. John's imputations upon the
American youth are, principally, that he
crowds and stares at ner "They seem to
have cheek etiuugn for anything," she says.
"Our Johnnies aren't quite so awfully
proper in dress aa your dudes. Occasionally
you will see one with his overcoat on his
shoulder and looking as if he were alive. We
call 'em Dresden china tissue Daner when
they get so very fine and look as if they'd
blow over if any one breathed, but, poor
things, their heeds are just the same empty.
I sing a little sweet hit of Gounod's music.
and they glower at me and try to swallow
the knobs of their sticks, and then tbey say :
'Oh, come, now, Sinjin, sing something jolly
something like "Will vou be mv Holly
hock f"' Oh, their poor brains, their uoor
"Did you bring your little bov with you?"

"No; he wouldn't come. He is in London
with his grandmother. I don't see what the
nursery has to do with 'Faust Up to Date.'
Here I want to pose us a voung and innocent
damsel, and they keep draiceine the noor
baby in, and worst of all say he is 4 months
old, which is rather embarrassing, as I
haven't lived with my husband for eighteen
mouths, and the child is 4 years old."
V ho can wonder that the poor woman pre
fers her Euglish home, where the "Dresdeu
China" young men call her Bin j in, though
they do glower and try to swallow the knobs
of their sticks, and call for "Will You Be
Mine, My Hollyhock," to a land where they
