OR the light thai lay In
Clapatra's eyes Antony tossed away his share of the threefold world, and if the Greek historians are to be believed. Helen of Troy kept men fighting by land and sea for ten long years. That these women were beautiful the world must believe. It has no better au thority for the fact than that upon which it bases the tradition that Julius Caesar had red hair and that immortal Homer was blind. But today, when beauty's secrets can be learned out of a book with almost the same precision as biscuit making, when newspapers publish the pictures of professional beauties in every corner of the globe and every country and every race has innumer able candidates for the prize, Lina Cavalieri, the cafe singer of a dozen years ago, the prima donna of to day, can be called "the most beau tiful woman in the world" with no voice raised against her title. The career of this extraordinary woman whose beauty has dazzled two con tinents and whose conquests have grown until she classifies them by nationalities, would have a place in mythology with Venus and Minerva had she lived in the heroic age. Poets would have sung her conquests and kings would have bled and died (but mostly vicariously) for her smile. But La Cavalieri does not live In an heroic age. She lives in an extreme ly practical and business-like one, and instead of having kings for her vassals, has more wisely chosen mil lionaires. With these bound to her chariot wheels by the kind of shackles men will wear when pierced by love's poison-sweet dart she has held a con tinuous triumphant progress through Europe for ten years, and the world has become so used to the spectacle that not much notice is taken except when one of her slaves falls on the road and the chariot rolls over him, and he is left behind with the dust of it in his eyes and his broken ropes of flowers and tinsel dangling round his neck. Such a one is the beautiful Una's latest fancy, her husband of a few months, Robert Winthrop Chanler, member of an aristocratic and wealthy New York family, - relative of the Astors and one time sheriff of Dutchess county. A Flower Girl's Fate. Natalina Cavalieri was born in Rome, the daughter of a Janitor. Her teens overtook her bare kneed,' sell ing flowers on the Piazza Colonna. Even then a wild uncultuied Italian beauty looked out of her big black eyes through a tangle of raven hair- a picturesque daughter of her race and calling. Even then Lina had a voice, and it charmed many a trav eler who stopped to buy a flower out of her basket without exactly having any present necessity for flowers. Lina had a little convent breeding and was not a bit afraid of the world, and she found it but a step from sell ing flowers on the Piazza to singing nights to the gay crowds that thronged the cafes. There were plen ty of admirers there to tell her she had a voice, plenty more to tell her she was beautiful. It is a question, perhaps, to which the budding beauty gave the most ear, at any rate her tri umphs both as a singer and a beauty have known no check from that hour. From Rome Cavalieri drifted to Milan and . Vienna, singing In the cafes, in music halls and in vaudeville theaters, and one morning Paris wake up to find her the reigning sensation at the Folies Bergere, where her sing ing and dancing opened a new world before her a world which must have been a revelation to the flower girl of the Piazza Colonna, but of which she .was not slow to take full advan tage. Rue de la Paix gowns, jewels, carriages and a fine house became Cavalieri as naturally as her glossy black hair. The dressmakers quickly found their creations looked better on her supple figure than in their shop windows, and there is no bet ter advertisement for a Paris dress maker than to have his gowns ad mired from the boxes where enrap tured audiences applaud a reigning favorite. Her First Step to Power. It was in Paris that' Cavalieri made her first great conquest and one that had a far-reaching effect on her sub sequent career. Prince Alexander Bariatinskl, a younger son of a noble Russian house, fell a victim to her beauty and lent his rubles and his influence to push her fortunes with the operatic managers. But for the prince perhaps Lina never would have risen higher than the Folies Bergere, for, after all, she was a better dancer than singer at that time, and a more successful beauty than either a sing er or dancer. But upon the advice of the prince she quit the bright lights of the theaters and cafes and settled down to a few years of hard study, and when she again made her appear ance before the public in Lisbon this time it was on the operatic stage and as a dangerous . rival of all the then accepted song birds of Europe. Voice culture was not all Cavalieri had learned in her retirement. The Russian prince had been teaching her lessons in love as well. Whether Lina really had learned them or whether she acted from an impulse of gratitude is not certain, but any way she married the prince and they lived happily almost a year. " Cavalieri, Professional Beauty. From Lisbon the newly-acclaimed ) CAVALIERI IN HER DRAWING ROOM. J diva began a triumphant tour that led her to Rome, to Vienna, to St. Petersburg and to London. Every where she went new triumphs await ed her, new suitors pursued her and fresh streams of wealth poured in upon her. And Lina is thrifty. She melled Russian and English gold into good French houses and lands, . de pending upon her admirers to furnish the diamonds that are a necessary part of any stage beauty's equipment. And these were not lacking. Her jewels are valued at half a million dollars, and she has a change of diamond necklaces for every gown in her wardrobe. Robert Winthrop Chanler had made one matrimonial venture when he met and fell in love with the beauti ful Italian. In 1893 he married , Miss Julia Chamberlain of New York. Her sister. Miss Alice Chamberlain, be came .the wife of Lewis Stuyvesant Chanler, Robert's brother. Robert's married life was not happy and a divorce took place three years ago. Even less fortunate has been the ex perience, matrimonial and otherwise, of John Armstrong Chanler, another brother. -The Story of Another Chanler. John Armstrong Chanler, or Chal- oner, as he chooses now to call hlm- self, was a wealthy young; New York lawyer with a Virginia estate in Albe marle county, when he met. in the late '80s, Amelie Rives. Their homes, "Merry Mills" and "Castlo Hill." were contiguous and the meeting bad come about through riding over the country roads. She was the daughter of a noted Virginia family. Her father was a rather celebrated engineer in the Civil war and his father had been thrice minister to France. From her earliest 'teens Miss Rives had been writing verse, short stories and a nov elette or two had come from her desk. But the world had given her little more than passing attention until one morning there appeared a little red book bearing across Its front cover the somewhat singular title, "The Quick or the Dead." Society gasped. It was the original best seller. No one ever really knew how many copies of that startling book were sold, and the chief magnet of it all was the fact that it had been written by a girl of twenty-two years, reared in the somewhat straight atmosphere of an old Virginia house, and having, presumably, no first hand infomation on the fetid world of which her book told. And the hero of the thing was Chanler. She even describes Jack Deering. "There was the same curling, brown hair above the square, strong-modeled forehead, the determined Jut of the nose, the pleasing unevenness in the crowded white teeth, the fine Jaw, which had that curve from ear to tip, like the prow of a cutter." Then the Marriage. Then, only a few weeks after the publication of this sensational novel, came the announcement of the mar riage of Chanler and Miss Rives. They went abroad and established a fund for sending chosen American art students to the European schools. Both were Interested In painting. Miss Rives even having at one time painted the portrait of a nude woman with herself as model. She was the most talked-of woman In the country and her book went right on selling year after year. " Soon she added "Herod and Marlamne" to her list of writings. At Intervals came one or two other novels, and in 1895 there appeared her dramatic poem, "Selene." In 1895 Amelie Rives Chanler and John Armstrong Chanler came to a crossroads of life and set out on devious ways. There was nothing In any way notable about the parting save the personalities and their great repute. An Exile at Home. And two years later began the romantic-tragic motif of John Arm strong Chanler's life. He was a de votee of the occult, studied closely the psychic, which has since come into trances, in which his face was said to assume a resemblance to the death mask of Napoleon, and believed himself able to write automatically while in such states of aberrance. Chanler had hunted brigands in Mex ico, traveled about the world in quest of excitement, and what may be more to the point, had a fortune of one and a half millions. His family wasn't partial to his vagaries and had his sanity attacked. By means which Chanler has always since de nounced as fraudulent the other brothers, one of the most active be ing Robert Chanler, had him sent to Bloomington asylum, where he spent four years. His rensational escape from this madhouse and the subse quent search for him in every part of the world are matters very generally remembered. Half a dozen times bodies were found and recognized as that of Chanler, the escaped mono maniac. Answering all these things Chanler appeared in a Virginia court one day and had himself declared sane. The courts of South Carolina subsequent ly tried his case and approved the Judgment of Virginia. Thus Chanler lives today on his Albemarle county estate, declared sane by two states and at liberty to go anywhere in the country save to New York, where his status still is that of an escaped luna tic and where his family waits to have him cast back Into a madman's cell. Not only have the courts of these states held him possessed of normal ity, but his neighbors consider him more than sane and he is a really popular man in his strange exile. Let the City Man Try. , It has been decided in stirring de bate by the Pomona Grange of Kent county, Rhode Island, that the city man had better rstay where he is and not try to come back to the farm. It is unfortunate that the dispatches from Rhode Island omit to mention why the city man would do better in the city than on the farm. Somehow, it appears to us up in Massachusetts as if the city man was Just the sort of man for the farm. The farmer hasnt as a rule got much money out of the soil In New England. Why not let the city feller see what he can do? As soon as he overcomes his aversion to overalls he ought to get along well. He Got His Answer.

His First Lesson m Economy. "When I was a very small boy and a dime looked pretty big to me, I met John H. Farley who had always been my good friend on the street one June day," says Frank Harris. " 'Frank,' he said, the Fourth of July is coming soon. You'll want some change then. Let me be your banker until then and you'll have some money for firecrackers, torpe does, lemonade and peanuts.' - "t emptied my pockets into his hand and every day thereafter until the Fourth I turned over to him my small earnings. When the day of days came around I had a fund that enabled me to celebrate in proper style, while many of my - playmates were flat broke. It was my first lesson in thrift, and It was a good one. Hundreds of Cleveland people would be glad today to testify to the fact that when John H. Farley was a friend of a man or a boy he was a friend indeed." Cleve land Leader.
