Columbia, April 1S.-One of the
celebrities of English musie ha!!Is 1and
I'a1iopeani var iety theatres is in Co
lumnbia. She is E'lla Williams, a nio
gro woman, whose ieighit is seven
and one-half feet and whose weight
is 350 pounds. She created a mild
commotion when she waulked utp Main
street, yesterday morning.
Ella is probably the largest woman
in the world. She said yesterday that
she had heard of only one woman In
the show business whose height was
anywhere iear her seven and one
half feet. Ella has undoubtedly
travelled more than any othcr ne
grss ever born in 'South Carolina. She
has made three trips all over Eit
rope, tours through Australia, New
Zealand, South America and other
countries. She is known profession
ally as Arboma and Is "headlitned" by
managers of European theatres.
The giant negress has returned
from England because the war broke
ut) her tours of the "'alls." She said
yesterday that she was going to open
a dress making sho) on Geravis street
"to pass away the time" utntil the
war ended and she could go to Europe
"I was born near Cross 11111 in
Laurens county," said Ella yester
(lay. "None of my sisters or broth
ers are unusually large. For years
every time a show man saw me he
would want me to sign a contract, but
I never could make up my nind to
leave Columbia. Finally in the fall
of 1896 while I was cooking for a
prominent family in Columbia, Man
ager F. C. Bostock got me to sign up
for a tour. Ile took me to Now York
and sent me to England. I worked
in the theatres over there until 1897
when I came back to 'Colunbita. I
went to 'Europe again in 1898 and
stayed until 1899. Then I returned to
Europe in 1900 and have been there
in the British colonies and In 'South
AmIcricn for the last i years. I will
never, stay away from Coluam bia and
1y' peoople as long as thbat again."
In the EItropean Iheatres E'lla sings

tmoimlar In France and i'ligland. Then
