'MOTHER' TO ALL ARTIST WINS HEARTS BY BE ING NATURAL HER CHILDREN OF MORE CON. CERN THAN SUCCESS Diva's Life a Refutation of old State. ment That Stags Career is a Bar to Domes. ticity SHIRLEY A. OLYMPIUS H the millions who have paid homage to "Mother" Schumann-Heink—or is it ""Grandmother?"—for her vocal ac complishments had heard a little friendly chat of an hour and a half which took place In her parlor at the Alexandria last night, they would be resinging her praises, for they would have got a glimpse of a new sort of diva—a mother, all naturalness, all love,' all sympathy. Some; writer, In his haste and Igno rance, once said that stage life was the bar to home life. He said they mixed no better than oil and water. He didn't happen to know "Mother" Schu mann-Heinle. She haa given the world an example of maternal devotion coupled with artistic greatness which might serve well for the guidance of ;:!! mother.", a!! artists. It may be betraying a confidence, but it will be an enlightenment to a great many persons to know that Mme. Bchumann-Helnk has six stalwart . two beautiful and dutiful daugh ters and five grandchildren. Each of her progeny is more to her than the greatest operatic success, and .has been since the time before Dame For tune waved the magic wand, making the namo Schumunn-Heink ring round the world and tilling the Schu mann-Heink purse. Thoughtful and Solicitous The dramatic and music editors will have much to say about Schumann lli'ink before another week is done. They may have words of praise or criticism for her efforts, but they will not be able to write one word except laudation for "Mother" Schumann- Helnk. When you enter Mmo. Schuraann- Hclnk's presence you become one of her Children for the time being. She is Just as anxious about you, if you happen to have a slight cold, as though you were her own flesh and blood. She will even order medicine for you, feel your pulse, ask you to let her see your tongue, and do all the other hundred and one things a thoughtful, loving mother does far her indisposed child. And she does not say or do these things, because she is trying to make an im pression which may lead to a little pub licity. She is not that sort. Mme. Schumann-Heink is a mother, a friend, before she- is a public character. When she put out her hand and grasped mine with the firmness of do light, and in her deepest, half-English, half-German, throaty tones said "I'm ■lad to see you again," I knew she wan. It had been some years since she and I met casually, but she had not forgotten. She made me feel as much at home as though we had parted only the day be fore: and that pur friendship had been one of a lifetime instead of the passing acquaintance of newspaper work and public life. It.'is the naturalness of greatness, the good nature of real motherhood and the love of life in every phase that; makes Sehumann-Heink one of the most delightful friends of a life time. She never conceals anything. She speaks her mind with the direct ness of a child and always has some thing to say worth hearing. It is just Acid Dyspepsia Nervous People Are Frequent Sufferers from Too Much ' Hydrochloric Acid in ! the Stomach A Trial Package of Stuart's Dyspepsia Tab lets Sent Free "Sour stomach," or acid dyspepsia, is a form of indigestion In which en tirely too much hydrochloric acid Is secreted by the stomach. A sour taste in the mouth is the most common symptom of acid dyspepsia; and the saliva, which is normally alkaline, is found, when tested, to be changed to acid, or just, the opposite of what it sholld be. and Ist a state of the. secre tion which causes rapid and extensive destruction of the teeth. Everything eaten turns more or less sour in the stomach, but sweets and acid fruits are far worse in this re spect than other foods, if the eructa. linn of liquids from tho stomach oc curs, they have such an extremely sour taste as to set the teeth on edge. Hydrochloric acid is an important constituent in the gastric Juice, but when too much of It is, secreted, it does positive harm to the mucous lining of the stomach; and when acid dyspepsia Is long continued it often sets up chronic gastritis, gastric ulcer and other serious diseases. The premature loss of all the teeth has been caused by acid saliva, which was dependent upon the excessively acid condition of the stomach. STUART'S DYSPEPSIA TABLETS, besides furnishing pure, aseptic pepsin to the stomach to dilute, the excess of hydrochloric acid, and to digest pro tcids and albuminous foods very thor oughly, also contain bismuth' subnt trato and calcium carbonate, which are antagonistic to the acid, and therefore neutralize, the effect of the excessive amount of acid in ' the stomach, and the continued use of these tablets will change the perverted condition of the secretions to a normal state. If you are suffering from "hyper clilor-hydria," as physicians term it, or in other words acid dyspepsia, and experience a sour taste in the mouth, with acid eructations or heartburn, be gin at once the use of Stuart's Dys pepsia Tablets, using one or two after each meal, or as may be required, and the same quantity at retiring time, for if the trouble is allowed to run on It may cause serious organic changes In the Stomach. There are cases on rec ord where the lining of the stomach has been completely eaten away through perverted action of the secre tions. Stuart's Dyspepsia Tablets have been tried In all forms of indigestion and dyspepsia with unfailing success, so that no matter which form you may be suffering from, the quickest way to bring about a cure is through the use of these powerful stomach tablets. ; v Secure from your druggist a fifty cent box and 8c cured of acid dys pepsia, or whatever form of indiges tion you may, be suffering.

ALL NOTES ELIZABETH WAGGONER Tin-: exhibition of the Architectural league of the Pacific coast is daily attracting hundreds of visitors, and the attendance promises to go (ar beyond that at San Francisco, where the exhibit was shown some two months ago. This exhibition covers a large snare of thP fourth floor of the Ham burger building and is admirably ar ranged to .show to advantage the many phases of the art of home building, decorating and furnishing. On enter- Ing the gallery through the ornamental gateway, itself a part of the exhibit, one of the first things to attract the attention at the far end of the main aisle Is the striking reproduction In plaster of a group from Alexander Stir ling Calder's decoration for the new Throop institute. At closer range im many see smaller reproductions, show ing the entire scheme of these sculp tural decorations and photographs as well. Nearby is the gallery containing what cannot but prove one of the greatest attractions of this or any other exhibition, a splendid collection of drawings and photographs of some of the great mural decorations of Edwin Howard Blashfleld. -*- Among these we find details from the great dome of the congressional library, many wonderfully beautiful figures from the great decorative com position, "Wisconsin," and similar fig ures from the mural decorations of the Minnesota state capitol, the state capitol of lowa, the Bank of Pittsburg, tho ballroom of the Waldorf-Astoria, the courthouses at Baltimore and at Wilkesbarre, the New York appellate court and tho College of the City of New York, covering some of the most famous mural decorations that have been executed in America. We find among these drawings, so exquisite in draftsmanship, the well-known "An gel with the Flaming Sword" and many others familiar through repro ductions. A series of drawings made to illustrate "The Masques of Cupid" are executed in a spirit all their own, with a charming delicacy. Thia col lection was not hung until late In the week, and is sure to induce repeated visits. Another striking feature of the ex hibition may be found in the gre^t cartoons for stained glass windows ex hibited by makers of art glass. Both McKay & Co. and the Los Angeles Art Glass company show some beau tiful designs and powerful cartoons, as well as stained glass windows ef fectively installed. The beautiful rugs shown by the Iran company are a de light whenever the oye falls on them, and imposing garden seats and stately urns add greatly to the general effec tiveness of the arrangement. Beau tifully carved furniture also contrib utes to the beauty of the scene, and in the various galleries there are dis played examples of art tiles, cameo cement and all that pertains to deco ration, interior and exterior. One gallery worthy of a special visit is' that devoted to the etchings and original drawings of Joseph Pennell. We expect exquisite beauty here and step up to what seem at first sight sketches of some old cathedral town, but on closer view we recognize the lines of our own skyscrapers, and we see that naturalness which has made her the idol of the "gallery gods." She sings to them with as much fervor as sho does to the occupants of a par quet or of the boxes. One hardly expects to hear from the lips of an opera star such words as "The painted-faced women are. the curse of a life," or "Why does he not ask his mother to help him." Yet "Mother" Schumann-Heink uttered those phrases when she referred briefly to the story of a young man In trouble. It is in college towns that Schumann- Heink is known best and appreciated most. Take for instance Ann Arbor, Mich., where the state university is located. Five thousand students, the majority of them young men, attend Ann Arbor. There are not half a dozen men in Ann Arbor who do not know "Mother" Schumann-Heink. She sings to the college students as she would to her own family, and they love her for it. Money is tho last thing in the world to appeal to Schumann-Heink. Her home and her family come first. Im agine Schumann-Heink riding In an ordinary Pullman, eating her meals at a Harvey house while the train waits just long enough for her to snatch a few bites and wasli them down with a cup of throat-burning coffee! it would be more natural to picture her an rid ing in a private ear or looking dis dainfully upon the hurrying, jostlins, passengers as they rushed for food. Her account of her trip from Albu querque to Los Angeles was so filled with laughter that the room rang when she bad completed her tale. She had had more fun while rushing for meals than in a month before. It isn't penury which makes Sehu mann-Heink travel like the rest of the world. It is a desire to be simple, un affected and real. She may well afford a private ear, but she prefers to do like tho rest of the world. She says sho is only an Instrument of the Al mighty for .spreading happiness, and she would betray her trust if she "put on airs." When she explained something about her children shu became all mother. She told of one son who Is connected with the ships that ply between New York and the West Indies, about a daughter who lives in Germany, about two sons who are on the stage with the "Three Twins" company, about another who works for the Mutual Life Insurance company, and about her youngest child, a daughter of 14 years. With the mention of each one she be came more and more the mother. She pointed with pride to the fact that her sons on the stage were singing "bits," but would soon be doing some thing worth while, and she laughed with delight when she said her son in New York had recently received a raise from $10 a week to $12. There is not much make-believe in a woman who will talk of her children the way "Mother" Schumann-Heink does. There is no make-believe In a ,tnother, and Ernestine Schumann- Ilelnk is mother before, while and after she is singer. Her mother love Is Irresistible and draws everyone to her. CEMENT COMPANIES MERGED TRENTON, N. J., Jan. 22.—Articles were filed with the secretary of state here today merging the Cement Man ufacturing company into the Alpha. Portland Cement company, which has works at Warren, N. J. The new Alpha comp have an authorized cap ital of $10,000,000. LOS ANGELES HERALD: SUNDAY MORNING. ,lAM ARY 23, 1910. through another's eyei the artistic: pos sibilities of the matei 'al In the world about us. In a delightful little sketch of "Chinatown" we find a welcome touch of "local color," and another original drawing shows an entrancing bit of skyline. These are some of the distinctive features, aside from what we naturally expect in an architectural show, the line after line of photographs and drawings of some of the greatest archi tectural achievements of this country. The she-Ing made is a wonderful one and a delight to the chance visitor as well as the trained architect. Some of these architectural renderings are veritable works of art, notably those by Arthur R. Kelly of Los Angeles, some beautiful pencil sketches of archi tectural subjects by Vernon Howe Bailey of New York and an admirably suggested bit of staircase from the Villa d'Estes, by D. A. Gregg of Bos ton. A number of "pencH sketches by .W. A. Sharp, made at Harper's Ferry, have an especial charm, and a small water color, "Venice," by Arthur R. Kelly, might grace any art gallery. Another Venetian scene by Elmer Grey shows an interesting view of the grand staircase of the doge's palace. < -*- The January number of the Fine Arts Journal contains an interesting article by Everett Maxwell on the art of El bridge A. Burbank, accompanied by several illustrations never before pub lished, as well as a number of Mr. Bur bank's well known Indian portraits. This is the first of a series of six arti cles by Mr. Maxwell which are to be published In this journal, and all will deal with the art and artists of the southwest. -*- There is one painting in the exhibi tion of William C. Montgomerle, now being held at the Steckel gallery, that alone will repay a visitor for a pilgrim age to this quiet place, where pictures may be seen at their best. This is a scene of Venice by night, rather a large canvas, and still it contains very little, while telling so simply the story of the beauty of Venice. The composition is unusual, and also the color, for the handling of such a range of blues with out bringing a feeling of coldness to the canvas makes It an interesting piece of painting. Mr. Montgomerle seems especially to delight in painting noc turnes, and another of these, hung di rectly opposite the entrance to the gal lery, is one of the most pleasing of the canvases shown. This exhibition has come here under the auspices of the. Los Angeles Archi tectural club, under the special direc tion of M. A. Vlnson, who has exer cised great care in his selection, and it offers the public an unusual oppor tunity during the remaining days of this month. P. Carl Smith will hold an exhibition of Dutch paintings at the Kanst art gallery from January 'H to February 5. Mr. Smith spends his summers in Hol land, and the paintings shown are scenes on the shore of the Zuyder Zee. The catalogue indicates that most of the paintings shown are genre sub jects, and the exhibition promises to be a most interesting one.
