T" Greenville Times p-"-zzn SATTJBDAY, JULY 9, XS87. run Ustle w tie Suayi Tallfj. Mr. Slo&son, Bays the Chicago Herald, describes the Ttti castle as situated upoo a picturesque craz, near the base of two maguin cent mountains, in the Swansea Valley in South Wales. The bail- ding was originally two stones, sort of cast Ic.with turrets,bot since Patti bought it fast additions hava been made. Three couserfatonea bare been added, and two elegant billiard rooms erected by way of L'a to the original structure. The two latter communicate by two doors, between which is an orches trion which cost 1150,000. It was built in Geneva, Switzerland, and plays over 100 operas and has facil itieafor addiut 100 more. This wonderful orchestrion ia inlaid with bronzes, and is not only beau Uful to look upon, bat its melody fills the castle as with the music of an orchestra of sixty pieces. Tatti'a billiard parlor, in the northern wiug of the castle, is pro bably the most beautiful billiard parlor iu the world. A rich parti tiou divides the parlor into tw apartuieuts. In one is an Euglish pocket billiard table as big as the old fashioned American table, and in the other is an American table, The latter is a marvel of costly workmanship. It is made of an tifjue oak, richly inlaid with ivory and silver and bronze plaque Soft carpets cover the floor, ex peusive paintings hang upon the. . .u. M-.M iresvucu cemng is a gallery for a string orchestra. A grand piano stands in one cor ner of the gallery. The collection of cues in the billiard parlor ia a remarkable one. It contains sticks that were presented to the diva and Kicolini by many admirers. Among them is one from President Diaz of Mexico, others from Vlg naux, riot aud youug Jacob Bcbae for and Joseph Dion, Tattl's tutor. There are also four of different de signs that Slosson himself present ed to Fettl. Mr. Slosson describes the con servatories, the billiard rooms, the alous, the sleeping apartments, the dining and breakfast rooms, the parlors and other apartuieuts as the "finest In the world." One of these conservatories is full of little cascades and singing birds, aud the atmosphere is laden with the mingled perfumes of many kinds of flowers. In this conser vatory the diva enjoyed many an evening promenado with her Amer ican guest. The castle looks down upou one of the prettiest sights the globe can boast. At the base of the mouutalu is a gently decll niug sward, through which runs a trout stream, whose zlg-zng course extends along the mountain's base for thirty-one miles. Deyond this, and upon the diva's Immense cs tate, there is a salmon stream which in its mcaudcrlngs measures thirty Ave miles. All the saloons, billiard rooms 4ud conservatories of the castle are lighted by electricity, while boudoirs and private apartments are lighted by gas manufactured on the premises. There are, says Mr. Blosson, ninety servants con nocted with the oastle, over whom a Qerraau named Wllhelin Heck presides as premier of the estate. He has authority even over Nico liul, the husband of the world's aoug bird, and kuows no superior at the castle except Patti herself. Within and without the castle, says Mr. Slossou, all is a sea of fruits, flowers and foliage. The area of the estate is one of mag nifloeut parka. In her home Patti Is a queen and her husband is a dissolute sot. She entertains her guests regardless of him, while he entertains them, or rather his guosts, after a most sottish style. lie has one sort of wine for him self and another, a less costly brand, for them. lie appears to be madly but sullenly jealous of her all the while. She is a lady of brains and force of character, keeping her own accounts, man aging personally her own affairs, and directing all matters of onsl ness on the estate. lie is a weak sister, with only enongh brains to comprobend the fact that others ao look upon him. Ilence his an congenial temperament Patti maintains sixteen horses at the castle and lives In a round of regal pleasure, in which Nlcolinl often fails to participate. Slosson, during his two weeks' stay, was a particular favorite of ratti. Of all the cnesta at the castle while he was there he was, be says, the favorite. His apart ments were the choicest iu the cas tle, bis seat in the conservatory dining apartment was nearest the d most elaborately dec orated with bouquets and best served with wines. And when he finally tore himself away from the regal hospitality and affectionate regard of the song bird be did so with the assurance that after her South American trip next year, she would return to America ouce more, although having already bid it a third or fourth "farewell." "The fact is," says Mr. Slossou, "that Nicolini was so insanely jeal ousofme that I concluded to avoid (rouble by cutting short my delightful visit." Boston Herald. 3i:rjii Paciis Ewiy Ccapiry.
