EVER WAS I MADE SO CON
I eious of the pathos of human life as
on Saturday afternoon. I have seen
friends die. I have stood in a court
room and witnessed a man, afterward
proven innocent, convicted of an infamous
crime-watched his agony of mind, his
complete surrender to the merciless injus
tice of fate. I once held the hand of a
young girl, mortally hurt in a railroad
accident, as she whispered with her last
breath a loving message to be carried to her
affianced husband-she dying alone among
strangers. It had always seemed to me
that nothing more pathetic ever could cross
the line of my life. But I was mistaken.
On Saturday I went to the Metropolitan
opera house to meet a friend who was at
tending the matinee. I arrived just as the
grand finale of "Die Meistelsineer" was
being given.
As I passed into the foyer it was utterly
deserted. Everybody about the place 'hid
crowded to the doors leading into the
auditorium to hear the concluding effort of
the musical lion of the hour, Jean de
Rieszke. Tue applause broke forth as I en
tered the building. It was tremendous.
The great struoture literally quivered. The
sir was charged with the magnetism of ap
reciation. I involuntarily stood still as
CbiMPA.Nit.
no does when the indescribable sensation
f an earthquake is first experienced. Then
took a step.
Out the corrider to the right came a
ort, heavy man with a companion. He
asgssticulatinf savagely. His usually florid
0o was livid. Hiseyes glared in all diree
one, and he literally rushed to the street,
the open air. I did not hear a word, I
dn't need to. The face told its
own story. Not hatred or dislike o0
the artist's work, or criticism of the comrn
pany, but remorse! Remorse to have lived
so long, perhaps. How 'out of place sym
pathy would have been: but I'd have liked
to have tendered it then and there to the
idol of the opera goers ifteen years ago, tc
the earnest, honest, faithful man who hur
ried away to lose himself in the crowd or
Broadway-to Italo Campanini.
Every man and woman who remembers
the great tenor at his best, and who had
stood at my side would have felt equally
sad. Personally, I have witnessed his tri
umphs in all parts of the world. I remem
ber his appearance in the Opera Real at
Madrid as Jose, when the final scene in
Carmen was given as never presented else
where. The parade in front of the gate of
the Plaza de Toros was real. Fasquelo,
the bravest espado of all Spain, was on the
stage out of special compliment to the
geeat tenor, with the Toledo rapier in his
firm right hand that had slain a hundred
La Manchan bulls. It was a great specta
cle and lengthened the night's function by
half an hour.
Let me see if I can give the reader a pio
ture of the scene. In the real fight the
procession of the combatants takes place
in the arena. With that single change the
,incidents followed each other just as they
did at the great ampitheater at the gate
os Alcala. It is no exaggeration to say that
every man in that narade was known
thfonughout the kingdom. First were the
officers of the police of the capital, dressed
in ancient Spanish costume. Then the
picadores, mounted, as they should be, on
horses with "the off eye" bandaged. Next
came the chulos, or combatants on foot,
arrayed like Figaro with their soarlet
shawls. Then the banderillos, with their
short, barbed spears. Finally, the mata
dors. or killers, and, after just an interval,
the great Fasquelo-the most fearless bull
fighter of the century. Even King Alfonso.
in whose honor all this pageant had been
organized, returned the salute of the
trim little man who stood facing him
rather than the audience in the center of
the stage. Nobody can understand the
popular enthusiam for the royal toreadore
who has never lived in Spain. The Esca
millo of the night entered without attract
ing much attention and passed behind the
curtain. Then from the left Campanini,
as Jose, darted upon the stage. The si
lence 6f the Escurial fell upon the house!
It is no exaggeration to say that the splen
did pageant that preceded was utterly
blotted from the mind of every person
present.
Campanini scored the hit of the night by
his wonderful ability as an actor quite as
much as by his voice. The king, who had
saluted Fasquolo, the pride of the penin
sula and entitled to wear his hat in the
presence of his ruler like a grandee of
hpain, rose to his feet, clapped his hands
and applauded like any other enthusiast.
After the opera 1 saw the great tenor at the
cafe Fornos, and he was apparentlv indif
ferent to the transcendant honors that had
been showered avon him.
But, it was different when I saw him last.
IHe would hlave given the rest of his life for
a riepitition of such a scene. The oxper
ionces of kings In exile. ex-presidents of
our republic and ad age tonori must be filled
with regrets and griefs.
Cumpanini was a genorous follow while
his prosverity lasted. Not that he throw
mIloney away, or gave it to his friends, but
he encouraged young singors, boulght ilum
self a pretty country place near lPadua,
wlhre he entertained guests inl truly hos
pitable fashion andh lived well, but never
extravagantly. His chief mlistake was thi
lilrnality with which he dispoutend his
voice. lHe was always willing to sing for
any charity; he was obliging to the verge
of ,enerosity with his nullllagera, 'Tien and
again he has voluntoered to sing when his ace
enciates or the second tenor wron 'iundispos
ed." I wits present at the opera tihe t.ight
G(rstor's voice failed her, The opera wats
"la Sontambuln." The utmost confusion
followed after the poor prima dlonlea was
led oil the the slage in tears. Colontul
Mapleson announced that the money wouhl
be refunded at the box; but (lnttul)enilli,
who was in the foyer with his" wife, at notce
volunteered to sing in "II Trovature."
After a delay of half an hour the certain
rose and the opera was given to the entire
satisfaction of the vast audience. The night
was saved, but for that service he posi
tively declined to receive a dollar, 'This is
only one of many instances of similar
character, all of which redound to the glory
of Campanini, but prevented the growth of
his bank account for protection against the
rainy season of his life that has now set in.
In the commercial world it is quite the
expectation to encounter reverses. Oftener
than otherwise they are prepared for. I do
not mean in any discreditable sense, but as
a matter of strict prudence and business
forethought. Few merchants amass for
tunes without placing some of their money
where it cannot be swept away by sudden
disaster. But the profligacy of professional
men and women in general is notorious.
How few people on the stage save money,
or leave fortunes behind them. Joseph
Jefferson is the only instance of a theatri
cal economist the t this generation can re
call; Patti has saved money, but she is
spending a fortune every year on her Welsh
castle. Barrett died poor; jolly Billy Flor
ence left 100,000 "plunks" out of the 1,000,000
that he earned with The Mighty Dollar."
Lester Wallack was saved from disaster in
his last days. by a noble outburst of
sentiment on the part of the profession,
the publio and the press. Indeed, thememn
orable testimonial was suggested by John
Russell Young in the Herald. But nothing
in Lester Wallack's conduct toward the
newspapers during his later days war
ranted any such thoughtfulness;
The sadness of poor little Marie Aimee's
last days is quite unknown in this country,
where she had so many devoted admirers.
I recollect distinctly her first appearance
in New York under the opera bouffe regime
of Jim Fisk. Her success was immediate.
We had heard Tosti, but Aiwaee's vivacity
and suggestiveness was a revelation. Not

spoke of the dead singer as "auntie," but

wouldn't clear rp the mystery, and a neigh.

positively refused to do so. The best
opinion obtainable was that the girl was s
waif that Aimee had adopted in times of
prosperity; but during the three years of
the mistress' illness the child had fared lit
tle better than a slavey.
The funeral service was brief as that of a
pauper's. In a few minutes the little pro
cession wended its way to the cemetery,
and we two Americans found ourselves
among less than, a dozen mourners. Al
bert Wolff was there, .1I remember, and fit
my heart this act of his atoned for many
of the vicious things said of him in his
lattel years. After the grave was sealed
op and the few flowers that had been
brought to the place of burial carefully be
stowed, my companion made a final effort
to ascertaint the fate of the lonely child.
She said she was goint back to the house
she had left, and with this indefinite re
ply wehad to be satisfied. Aimee's effects
were hardly worth enumerating. A few
thousand dollars would cover their value.
She had had her fling, poor girl, and
paid dearly for it in her last days.

From a letter written by Mrs. Ada E.
Hurd, of Groton, S. D., we quote: "Was
taken with a bad cold, which settled on my
lungs, cough set in and finally terminated
in consumption. Four doctors gave me up,
saying I could live but a short time. I gave
myself up to my Savior, determined if I
could not stay with my friends on earth I
would meet my absent ones above. My
husband advised tme to get Dr. King's New

NOT DEAD.
Remarkable Experience
of John Turk, a Pio
neer of Helena.
89 Doses Taken at Once Did
Not Kill, but Succeeded
in Curing Him.
tJohn Turk, Cascade, Montana, took 39
doses of a so-called "San Francisco Quack's
Medicine," at once, and was not killed,
as promised by rival doctors. In Septem
ber, 1889, he called on Dr. A. C. Stoddart,
visiting physician for Dr. Liebig & Co.,
Liebig World Dispensary, San Francisco
and Butte City, who had offices for two
weeks at the Merchants Hotel, Helena.
Mr. Turk had suffered for years with
Rheumatism, Impurity of Blood and effects
of mercurial Salivation. He had four of
the best physicians in Montana attend him,
and they failed to relieve him. Dr. Stod
dart exantined him, sent his prescriptions
to Liebig Dispensary, San Franoisco, to Lie
prepared. Alter Dr. Stoddart left, Mr.
Turk met the local doctors and told them
what he had done. They laughed at him,
and acid "that San Francisco quack would
kill him." He was so frightened that when
the medicine from San 'Francisco came he
put the bottle upon a shelf at his house,
707 Park stset, Helena, and it stood neg
lected until December (nearly three
months) while Mr. Turk suffered day and
night, had not slept half an hour at a time
in years. Being in gieat agony late lu
)eoemnbur, at miduight. his eye caIught
sight of the so-called "Quack's?" mcdi
cine; ('TIlE Qi'AC(K lirPP'Ns 'ti) IITYriE THE

himself with the "Quack's' medicine, as
he was told by former attt:nding doctors it
would kill him, so he swallowed half a
