ACOSTA, Stat, Ag.M JACKSONVILLE, FLORIDA ijhe Ready Ration for Dairy Cow American Ambassador Puts Wheels In Motion and Her Blackmailer Is Sent to Prison Puccini Planned an Opera for Her. New York. "If there was lack of artistic temperament in the original composition of Miss Dorothea Alastalr MViVnne, her experiences as a profes sional singer in Italy would have made good the defect, for she so im pressed the great Puccini that, at his instance, she made her operatic debut as Mimi, In his "La Boheme," carry ing through the part with success when she' was In the first stages of typhoid fever; she fell under official suspicion as a spy in Taranto, where there is an Italian naval station; she underwent a siege of blackmail that resulted In sending two oppressors to prison, and she became the betrothed of a young noble, who was killed In the war.

It was re ported that Puccini Intended to write an opera for her, but the war ab sorbed him in other affairs. Something of a Psychic Miss McVane Is something Of psychic.
