Louis Homer (Tefl) and Geraldino Farrarw
New York, Deo. 6. Whil 'American
art anay lagr behind that of Europ In
some respects, foreign critics of Uncle
Sam and his people ar admitting that
at least two prima donnas who are
natives of tha United States Geral
Aine Farrar and Louise Homer have
few peers and no superiors among
the great prima dorenaa of other lan da
These two and another American wo
man, Olive Fremstad, ax the domi
natiog flgrures of the operatio season
which opened recently n New Tork.
Geraldina Farrar at thirty-one has
reached the very pinnacle of success;
and yet critics have noted that she has
(frown constantly in her parts and
they believe she will continue to do so
for another ten years. She was born
in the dull little Massachusetts town
nf Melrose in 1SS2; fifteen years later
went to Paris to study; made her de
but at the Royal Opera in Berlin as
Iarguerite when she was nineteen,
and returned- to America five years
later, afte she had established a Eu
ropean reputation and become the
avowed favorite of the Prussian capi
tal. In America Miss Farrar has met
with tremendous popular favor. She:
has a hold on the average American.)
mere is sometrung in ner personality,
in her beauty and enthusiasm 1 which
captivates the American who Is , pro
verbially bored by the art in which!
she exceiis. A critic has Baia-tr her
that "she is the only artist and eh
is always an artist one can think of
who might be able to hold through a
performance the howling throngs that
crowd tli league ball parks in Pitts -.burg,
St. Ixjuis, Chicago, New Tork
and this not by singing' 'The Last Rose
of Summer or 'The Suwanee River,
as earlier prima, donnas used to do."
lira. Louis Homer for thirteen
years has been th principal contralto
at the Metropolitan opera house, and
during that time no other contralto
has pleased the -critical audlenoes of
thi dty as sh has. Others have sur
passed her in single roles, but not one
has sung so many parts so well or
maintained so high a standard as she
ha. Today sh,ls in th very prime
f her power.
Mm. Homer Is a native of Pitts
burg and th daughter of a Presby
ter an minister. Before she was out
of her teens she went to Boston and
studied vole under "Whitney and har
mony under S&ney Homer, who later
became her husband. In less than four
years sh was singing In opera with
the greatest artists of th tun at
Covent Garden, London.
LITTLE 4 TALKS ON
COntmtid From First Page.)
the soap, th baby is lifted from the
water, dried Quickly with an old soft
towel and powdered. Th drying
should be don by patting not by hard
rubbing, and the creases be dried be
fore th talcum powder Is applied.
iYou will notice that I have not
spoken of washing out the baby's
mouth. . rootors seem to agree that
th practic is apt to cause thrush and
other affections of the mucus mem
bran. It is extremely easy to tear
the delicate lining of the mouth, and
Nature has provided a cleansing ele
ment in th saliva which gathers In
the baby's mouth.
Th healthy baby will soon learn to
enjoy "a bath properly given and show
eagrerness for it. The delicate baby
should b bathed under direction of a
physician. II may order a sponge
bath only, or an oil rub. Children suf
fering with any form of skin disease
should not be bathed unless the doc
tor orders It. Eczema and ring-worm
ar both aggravated by soap and
water bathing. .
But the healthy baby should have
his morning bath between his 6 o'clock
and 9 o'clock feeding. It sends him
off drowsy to his morning nap. When
the baby Is a year old, the hour of
bathing may ba changed to 5:30 in
preparation for his night's sleep. In
this way the child's entire being de
mands a bath, the sensation of cleanli
ness, and when he is able to bathe
himself h will do It as mechanically
and regularly as he removes his cloth
ing to retire.
Many mothers ask whether a baby
should have a cold sponge after the
warm bath. The word "baby" is elas
tic. A child under two years is not
strong enough for the application of
cold water. After two years, a sturdy
child can b gradually accustomed to
a cold shower or douche, by reducing
th temperature at which it runs from
the tap. But always the warm bath
should b given first for cleansing the
pores. The cold water serves merely
to stimulate circulation and ward off
Th most important habits of clean
liness are inculcated In a child by the
mother's own car of th baby's diap
ers. If th baby is kept dry and clean
from birth he will fret when he Is
wet and soiled. And from fretting over
discomfort from uncleanllness h will
grow Into habits of cleanliness. He
will learn regularity and self-control.
Th careless, untidy, mother has no
right to expect Nature to provide her
with a fine, healthy child. He may
be well proportioned and healthy when
he comes Into th world, but he will
soon lose strength and health if he- is
not kept clean. Badly rinsed clothing
causes eruptions, for th remains of
soap, sal soda and ly irritate the
baby's tender skin. Carelessly washed
diapers cause chafing and nervous af
fections. Eczema germs will find a
lodgment in inflamed, creases that
ought to b dimpled, pink folds of
healthy skin. A dirty or scaly scalp
itches, and Itching keeps th baby
awake, making him nervous and fret
ful. I know mothers who spend hours
sewing on lac and embroidering tiny
frocks, yet, who hurry through th pro
cess of bathing. This is a grave in
justice to th child. -

GIVE ME NOT" LOVE.
By Ethelwyn "Wether aid. v
Let m not b a slave.
Up stretched to crumbs or loaves
dropped from above;
It is not lov I crave.
It is th power to love.
Sh who gains lov gains what?
A treasure that sh may or may not
A flower, a flame, a blot,
A mem'ry under mould.
She who gives love gains all.
. Her love her kingdom is and jew
Her star, her flawless wall
Of strength when forts ar down.
Let me not b a slav
Upstretched to wlne or less flung
It is not loveI crave,
It Is the power to love.
