Tliis ia tlio question I nra con.stirntly asked by ambitious young women with sonio voice and talent wliich tlioy lon^ to air in public. You must bo a workman at your trado befoi'O you can bo an artist in your art," is my invariablo answer. On tlio operatic, as on tho dramatic stage, most young women expect to shoot like rockets straight to tho zenith of the ."ilcy of siiocoDs. They expect to take a faw lessons in vooati7..ition, hurry off to tho dressmalcer'.s, get some handsome gowns.ruali botoro tlio footlights and blossom out luxuriantly as Leonora or Maroruerito. Tiioy cannot bu niado to realize tho fact tliat a long and arduous course of preparation, involving weary years of study and practice, aro absolutely essential to that worthy aohiovemeut, without wlvioli they cannot win oven an ephemeral triumph, nor would they bo willing to undorgo tho labor and hardsliip required. Tlicy are also ignorant of that other groat fact tliat financial success upon the stage is by no means v/liolly deponuenl upon morit, but is largely a matter of opportunity and oircumstanoos. To attain perfection in singing, as in almost ovorythiug else, one should begin at a very early .ige, and it is of tlio utmost importance that her lirst instruction should be tho voiY best obtainable. Above all, she sliould iio thorouglily andcorrotly grounded in tlio rudiments of her art. 'J.'liis can only bo done by one irho is a complota master of vocal training, It is a common and very Berious error to thinlc thatanferior teachers aro good onougli for a beginner. First impressions aro always tho most lasting, and bad habits and mannerisms of vocalization acauirod at the outset can never be overcome. Many a promising young singer ia completely ruined in this way by having for her lirst instructor a wholly incompetent person. Si^ch teachers begin at the wrong end. Tlieir one idea socnis to be to tencli their pupils' to sinif songs or operatic arias, whereas tho pupil sliould first uo taught the rudiments of inusic. Her voice Bhould then bo ooi'ofully and .iudiciously developed- and particularly its weak points streiigth-oned - by suitable vocal oxerolso. That done she should repder hersoU' tlioroughly familiar with tho works of the great mas-;erB, not by having thom drummed into her lybor teacher as a parrot learns to say 'Pretty Folly," but by industriously studying tliom liersolf; by seeking diligently and patiouUy for the composer's meaning, sing-mg each douiitful passage over and over again, in every vfirlety oj; iutorpretalien, and striving most earnestly to satisfy herself, .os to wliicii is tho � i� Btarinony with tho true Kiiirit of tho composition. Wlien at last she ha.s arrived at what .seems asatisfactory conclusion slio should listen to various renditions of the same worlc by skilled artists, comparing their interpretation erf it witli lior's, .ind comparing tho arguments in favor of eaoli. Tho chief aim of every voc;il instructor should bu to develop and strongilicn his pupil's voice, to impart to her a correct technique, and to enable her to sing any composition at sight. How mucli, or rather how littlo, of such instruction do most young women who aspire to ho singer.'* recoivj? I h.avo said that to be a great singer one must begin young. I sang on the stage from my Bovehtli to my eleventh year, and carried on juy doll when I made my first ap-iioarauco in pnlilio at tlio former age, singing "Ah! non giunge"-the liiialo of tho tliird act of "Iy,i Bonnambula"~in a concert at Niblo's Garden, New York, on Doe. 3, 18E1. ful not to take cold, and oapecially not to sing after she has done so. When going out for a walk or drive in damp or cold weather she must have her throat well protected. For this purpose a sillc scarf is best. A handicerchief held over the mouth Is a wise precaution to prevent tho cold, damp air from reaching the lai-ynx. Tho feet and legs should be woll protected with overshoes and leggings. There are two vulnerable points which ffllTost I*ooplo EutU-oly WoBloot to guard. I mean tho little opening through which each ear receives soimd. Physicians toll us thatthoreis directconneotion,known as tho ouBtachian tube, bot"vvoou the oar and tlio tlu'oat, and cold air. entering the ear may thus readily affect the larynx. To pre^ vent this it is woll for a singer to keep her oars stull'od with small pieces of cotton when out of doors in cold weather. Singers aro often severely blamed for "disapiiointing tho publio," and it is a popular notion that they aro never really Indisposed when it is announced that tliey are, and that they only protend to bo for some sinister purpose. Tiiis is a Kroat mistake. Singers aro quite as mortal and quite as subjeet to all tho ills that flesh is heir to as otlier people, and when a groat singer, suffering from a severe cold and hoarseness, must choose between "disappointing the publio" and ponnanontly injuring her voice, can she be expected tfi hesitate in choosing the former alternative? As I look bade over my many years of life on tho operatic stage, reminiscences crowd thick and fast upon mo. I can readily go hack in memory to my first appearance when a child of seven years. I can even remember the dross I wore-a white silk with but littlo trimming. Since that time I have sung in many 'climes, have made many de,ar friends in many lands, and have received many most gratifying tributes of approbation from audiences of many na-tioualitioa. Of .all those tributes I remember with special ploasiu'e one that I received in Naples in 1S78. On the last night of ray engagement the w.arm-heai'ted, generous Neapolitans literally covered the stage with flowers. Not only was I nresonted with large and beautitnl floral designs, bxit small bunches of flgwors and even single ones wore rained upon'me in a perfect shower. At first I tried to personally receive all tho elaborate designs that were handed up over the footlights, but the task soon beoarae an impo.ssible ono. Tho leader of tho orcliestra was almost entombed in tiowers, and the front of the stage was a perfect bank of tliem. Finally the stage hands had to clear away the loose flowers with rakes, A great compliment was paid mo once in St. Petersburg by the late Tliomas Winans, tho famous raiUiounaire of Baltimore, who amassed such an immense fovtuive by railroad building in Russia. "When I sang for tlie lirst time in tlio Russian cap tal, Mr. Winans paid .?100t) for tho first choice of boices, saying that the only sinpring that ho had any taste for or eared to hear was mine. A Kussian friend told him that ho could have gone to Paris and back Aiitl KoarcK nito Sliier thoro a dozen times for the great sum he Iiad paid to attend only one of my perform-anocs. Mr. Winans replied tliat he w.anted to hoar mo then, and would gladly pay his .?1000 rather than wait till I should sing in Paris. I think I may .iustly claim to have suug to audiences representing larger sums of money than any other artist now living. During my first engagement with Mr. Abhov, I sang to .?12,350 at ono ooiicort in Boston at tlio Mechanics' Inslftute. During nt if You Must Ilavc TJiCiii, let Thcra Bo like Those Described Below.

Haven't you oyer been through such an oxporionco yourself? Haven't you known what it is at lecture, or concert, or theatre, to sit behind some tall man, or some woman with towering and spreading head gear? Don't you remember how cross you got, and how your entire enjoyment for the evening was destroyed because you could not see what you had paid your money and come to see? How often- one sees from tho vantage growid of a front row in tho gallery a dozen people made uncomfortable and angry by ono tall bonnat in tlio front row. No. 1 in the seat behind this high crime and misdemeanor, after vainly trying to crane his nock seas to overlook it, twists himself in his seat so as to look to one side the obstruction. No. 2 behind No. 1, after failing in an effort to look over, twists himself so as to get a glimpse of the and ntptures-I mean Ovonini which I looked over at the 6sta__________ a charming little Frenchwoman on Boy Iston St. yesterday.

On Nov. 1.M, 1850. when I was 15 years of age, 1 nnule my debut in opera at tho Acado-ihy of Music in New York, sin'riug tlio title role in "Lucia di Lainmennoor." It is tliouglit by some tiiixt it is injurious to the voice to develop it .at so early an age., but 1 do not think so, provided due f' is taken not to .strain or overtask it. To sing ill the open air, to sing too loudly or Io sing notes that are too high aro ruiuoiiM to tlio growing voice, and sliould be moat oaretuDy a\o:dod. I am far from being tlio only Instanoo of a great siiigor wiio made lier debut in cliildliood. Albitni was a nim-i) child wlion she snug difflc.ult arias at concerts, and she nuioo her oporatio debut before completing her lEth yeai-. Tlio yomiB' wouiiiii who is ambitions to beconio a really great singer docs woll to go abroad to study. Ono of tho best singing; teachers in all the world is Mmo. of Paris, the vocal trainer of Gerstor and 'i'rebelU. There are also some excollont teachers in Milan. In siniring, as in everything else, practice makes perfect. Tiiose who wish to h(i great singors must practice untiringly. Hard work is tile principal factor of all artistic succes.i. Genius and voice count for little without it. Young women r.-ith operatic aspirations come to my performances, and, alter i hoy have tieard me. exclaim; "How easily Mine. Ptttti sings. It is no trouble to be a great prima donna if thogift for it is born in one." All, they do not know of the iveary years I spent in study and praotioo of the Most Arduuim i:lxaractei*r and at an age, too, when other girls were thinking only of dolls and bon bons. I toll you there is no royal road to becoming a groat singer. Having developed a voice, tho next thing of imiiortuaoe is to nrestrveit. There is nothing that will spoil it or wear it out auicker than a use v,-liich, by br'ing exoesa-ive, becomes ahunn, twice a v.eek, or tlin.o limos at iiiostr, if the sliigcu- be in pcrhxit health, is quito asoi'ti'ii as due sliould in opera if slif Iil .M-lal StCHurl'!. .SU'Sif uiiii line liA.N.UfS.

Affairs are complicated by occasional movomonts on the part of tho wearer of tho tall hat, who throws the whole row into confusion and makes now adjustments of position necessary. There's no more reason why a woman should wear her hat at concert or theatre than for a man to do so. In tatit, there is far loss reason, for the long hair of tho woman protects her head from possible danger of taking cold; while men, poor things, with short hair and often with none at all, are really placed in anconifoi'lab o if not dangerous positions, by sitting with uncovered heads amidst the draughts which always prevail in a largo hall or theatre. "Oh! it's all very well for people who live in the city," grumbles some onb, "and who g� to thcati'O or concert in a carriage. But one can't oomo in from tho .suburb.s on a steam train or tho street oai','i barelieaded, and it's lonsonse to talk. We must wear hats or lonuets; and then if we take them oft after we get there goodness knows what a condition our linir wi,ll he in, after being mussed liy our lialsl" Nonsense, my doarl Don't toll me yon are not clever enotigli to got around or climb over or crawl under a little difhculty like that, for 1 know better. In the first placo you can take off your hat or bonnet if you please, for there are dresS' mg-rooms in ail tho best theatre and concert rooms now, into which you can stop for a few momorts to settle your puffs and tluff UP your crimps and bangs. You can leave your Init there, moreover with yom- rubbers and extra wrap, and tbei; go to your seat unencumbered by a lap fuk ot things to hold, and witli your eonsoienco tree of offence towards your neighbors. Suppose yon do live in the suburbs and have to catcli tho late train. Everything but the opor.a, perhaps, lots out early enough tor you to spend five minutes or less in (retting and donning your wraps, and yet be m season. But suppose you do not wish to tako even this small auiomit ot trouble. Tliea have a large (farment, au ulster, wrap or shawl ovou, which covers your costume and keeps you wiirm, yet may bo thrown oft easily and spread over tho backot your chair with out trouble. And for your head, make s. large light hood of some sort, which will cover your head warmly, witiiout mussing your liair, aud may be taken off at tho tlieatre aud stulfed, without injury, into tho pocket of your wrap. After tho effect has sunk into one's very soul, as it wore, Madame returns, and perhaps makes a suggestion as to a possible oiiango, or else pronounces it to be simply perfect aa it is. And you buy it, oh I bless you, yes I You can't lielp buying it, even if it takes all your spending money for six months, as very likely it will. The favorite shapes are tho tiny littleflat toques, not much larger than your hand, ad the Greek iillet ahapo. One of these dainty confections was a littlo � toque which had a crown of goldthread net in very large and coarse mesh, showing the lining of pala blue crape beneath. A folded band of turquoise blue velvet amTouuded this, and on each side of this was laid flat a largo quill in an openwork gold pattern studded with turquoises. At phe baolt: of the toque wore two upstanding loops of the gold net, a loon or two with ends of velvet, and throe finy ostrich tips in the same shade of blue. Into this Itnot of trimming at the back were thrust two gold hatpins, which had large �pon->vork Beads with a turquoise sot m ther side. I 'Twas a porfeot poem, my dear, boimd in bl^ieandgoldl nother pretty affair had no crown, hut uu.y a brim composed of a thick wreath of p.ala pink forget-me-nots and a folded band of pink velvet, with throe tiny pink ostrich tipa !it the back, one of them falling gracefully over the hair. Vfith this, us in the case ol other bonnets at this establishment, there was a collarette of ostrioli feathers to match in palest pink, tied with long pink ribbons. A littlo flat toque made of shirred, up-Btanding folds ot pink velvet, had two tiny "baby otters," so called, about the brim, and the usual cluster of throe ostrich tips, oallod the Prince of Wales feathers, at the hack.
