Export business is tiding the Fairmont

ways in doing so. Curtis Bay shipments
on Friday set a new daily clip
when 336 carloads of coal were sent to

shipment that ever went to Curtis Bay.
On Thursday there were 295 carloads
sent there, which had up until Friday
beeii the highest tonnage shipped there

Curtis Bay shipments all week having

I more than 200 carloads were sent
there. The total carloads sent to Curtis
Bay tiuring the first five days of

tons. The Indications are that with
today's loading the total for the week
will run well above the 1,600 car mark.
Friday's shipments to Curtis Bay

Famous Prima Donna Pass- (
es Away Suddenly This (
Morning. J
(By Associated Press)
LONDON, Sept. 27.?Adelina Patti, i
the prima donna, died, this morning at <
| her home in South Wales. ?
Mmme. Adellna Patti reigned for 40 1
f years as qneen of Bingers. i
Her marvelous voice thrilled the J
greatest ooiitejnporaries ot her day.
The elder Dumas, ,the French "dramatist,
&ce said to tier: 1
to listen to your singing; but if I were e
a bird j.',wouid die of ehvy." 1
"She had toiies so beautiful," said 1
one'eminent musical critic, "that they J
seemed to gush spontaneously from
the very fountain-spring of vocal i
youth." i- |
Mme. Patti inherited her talent. j
"I am a child of the stage," she had
said, "being born during an operatic
season at Madrid, Spain, in 1843. My c
father, Salvatore Patti, a Sicilian, was a
'a good tenor singer. My mother, a
Roman, became a famous artist as t
SHgnora Barili ?the name of her first j
husband." j
Dwindling finances sent the Patti e
family to New York when Adelina, g
whose birth name was Adela Juana
Maria Patti, wasa baby. When she -j
was seven years old, her parents sud- J
denly became destitute.
"In the emergency," the singer said,
"my mother considered that I had extraordinary
vocal talent, and hit upon
the idea of bringing me out in concert.
And so I sang and soon won *
bread for the family." *
The child made her debut at Tripler, 1
Hall, in New York, singing arias from ^
the "Barber," in 1850. She was the J
Juvenile prodigy of the day, and nearly '
ruined her voice by bverwork. She ap- ?
Tipnrpd strain at the atre of 13. After a
tour through * the West Indies, she 1
withdrew to prepare for a greater ca- i
At the age of 16 she appeared In the
Academy ot Music, New Tork, In her
first opera role, "Lucia di Lammermoor."
Her wonderful soprano roused
the audience to the wildest enthusiasm,
and her tame swept -the country.
At this time she was earning $100
a week.
She repeated her conquest as Amina
in "La Sonnambula" In Covent Garden,
London, in 1861. Her salary had '
increased to $760 a month.
It wis the beginning of a dazzling
conqquest of all Europe. Royalty entertained
her and courted her favors.
The populace besieged her hotels and theatres.
Men in all stations of life
wooed her, but she brushed them aside
with a laugh and trill; She finally
capitulated at the age of 25' to Henri,
Marquis de Caux, equerry to Napoleon
III. They separated after a few years,
Mme. Patti. finally securlnga divorce
in 1885 to.marry Slgnor Ernesto Nico- llnl,
an Italian tenor singer.
Her first American tour began in
1881?her last in 1908.

The many friends of 5ev. C. B. t
Goodwin in this city will be glad to e
learn that he will be returned as pas- (

This decision has been reached at 0

owing to the insistent demand that
he be returned here. It Is not proba
