London, March 8, ?A tall and beauti?

oevry time the happy beauty went by.
By the time the train with the Lusi

into the station the crowd had become
Interested in the 'mysterious happiness
of the woman, whose dramatic manner?
isms ied to the belief that she was more
than a star?perhaps a planet?of the
stage. And this surmise was truo. for
the woman was Mine. Emma Barnes.
The few who recognized her spread
the news, and soon the station was In
that state which-would be called "agog"
i if the word were permissible.
The whistle of the approaching train
I brought the beauty to a slop. Sho

form Her dramatic, and expressive
hands sought each other In a clasp of
emotional suspense. The passengers
j were getting out of the coaches and
heing swallowed up by little groups of
welcoming friends.
Suddenly the diva, who was now tho
j focal point of every eye, as if she had
beep under a spotlight, tittered a cry?
not a little, foolish, insignificant cry,
but a real, welling, musical, grand
opera cry, guaranteed to carry to the
farthest gallery.
A tall, handsome man had just
stepped to the platform from one of
the coaches. It was Lmijlo do GOgdrza,
the baritone. That cry was for him.
They (lew at each other. Ills baggage
dropped from his hands. He opened
his capacious arms. Her arms were
around his neck. He embraced her.
