Diva's Life a Refutation of old State.
ment That Stags Career is a
Bar to Domes.
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-
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.
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
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

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
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.
TRENTON, N. J., Jan. 22.—Articles
were filed with the secretary of state

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

This is the first of a series of six arti
cles by Mr. Maxwell which are to be

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.
