IN THE SPRING will be the- great text of a life and death strugcio on the Western front. In the everyday walks of life, it is the spring time that brings ill health. One of the chief reasons why the run-down man 'finds himself in a bad slate of health in March or April, is because he has spent nearly all his hours (or the pa>t four or ; live mouths penned up within the walls cf house, factory or oilier. It is tlie rea- , ton for our diminished resistance - ;i;at . is. lack of out-door life, coupled with perhaps over-eating, lack of good exer- : cise, insufficient sleep, and constipation. In other words, we keep feeding the furnace with food but do not take out j the "clinkers." and our firo does not burn | brightly. Always keep the live* active. Thero is nothing better for health than ' taking an occasional mild laxative, per- 1 haps once a week ; such a one as you ] ' ou-.'-airieil or Ciirn:.-:ii sash girdle is i-.'j'.ured o:: fflii!!' sou .silk dresses lor sr.-insr. and it U almost uniformly Womiiir- rhid girUtV is a feature of the frock shown in the sketch. .This dress Is made with a fitted underneath bodice lining, the durpiice timp'Ty and glrd'.e being" si cured underneath the arm.

"There are no tricks at the close of the. performance to in ner singing. She could easily resort harness themselves to a prima donna's carriage and take her back to her residence in triumphal procession. Xothing like it has been experienced in a decade, and for its equivalent music lovers, .with long memories have gone back through the triumphant first appearances of Tetrazzini and Sem-biich to the anciut times when Jenny I.ind from Sweden and Adeiini Patti from Yonkers gathered laurels in a .Xew Ycrk which did not then have the relative importance in the operatic world which it now holds. Rut more important that the personal achievement of the prima donna who had reigned for two years in Chicago, but of whose ability to win Xew York thero was no certainty until she actually won it. is the possibility, which 10 some musicians seems a very-strong probability, that her triumph is indicative of a forthcoming change in the whole trend of operatic pro- � gress and a material widening of the possibilities of the musical drama. For the triumph of GalliCurci, in the opinion of musicians who know the opera public as well as it can be known, .was due primarily to tlfe fact that she sang amazingly well things 'hat. people like to hear. The operas of the early nineteenth century Italian school( florid, not to say lurid, in their soprano ectasies. were gradually passing out of favor with a public which had been educated by the. �iramatic operas of recent years to demand something of more substance I ban is offered by works which stake everything on the vocal gymnastics of the prirno donna. Yet, after GalliCurci won Xew York in "Dinorah," an opera which had been generally re garded as hopeless before a 191S audience, there has grown up a feeling in some musical quarters that she has shown the existence of a demand for a type of music which was passing into disuse, partly because of the inadequate quality of the operas which to jugglery, but she doesn't. There has been no such singer since Melba, twenty years ago: we have no voice like it. She has a special gift, and by using it at t�e bidding of an intellectual and beautiful musical intelligence she has brought it almost to perfection. She knows, doubtless, what sho is still working for. to what she still aspires; but to me she seems as nearly perfect as possible. i * "I don't, say she could sing the Queen of the Night one day and Brunnhilde the next; hut why should she? What she presents to the hearer is unequalled. In an audience such as that which heard her debut in New York there .were many groups, to some of which one quality would appeal and to some another. But she had the qualities to win them all. "There is something so personal in her singing. We can all admire the vocal agility that she must bring to her roles, but the most amazing thing about her voice is a limpid, luscious even quality that reminds me of nothing so much as the heart of a pansy. Calve had a liquid velvetiness like hers. And Gallt-Curcl can put her heart in her voice. The st^me quality runs through her whole range, which I suppose must be two and a half octaves-a capacity for importing mellowness all through, from the highest to the lowest, which I have never heard in any other singer. The whole first act of 'Dinorah' showed that very exceptional characteristic which we call the ballad quality; and then she has the frills and all the rest. "And there is something peculiarly appealing about her personally. There i� no effort, no striving. It Is a beautiful thing brought to people who can appreciate it. "Mr. Tellegen and I heard her in Chicago, in her first season, when I was singing with the Chicago company. We read of her triumphal de- generation of singers had died away.! think that, she could galvanize into! laturc under which she appears. Sho That kind of music was passing, it I life such an opera as 'Dinorah'! " .sang in Italy, where Thorner first met appeared, but it was because there! As to Galli-Curci's career before she. .her at Catania five years ago; in Spain, was no interpreter who was adequate, came here, Xew York may be pardon-1 and in South America before coming Now we have a great gift supplement-1 ed for thinking that it doesn't matter, to this country. t t 1 I Enjoy your Victrola THIS ST.

There'* a wealth of Irish music that only the Victrola can bring into your home-and with the convenient terms of payment we offer you, you cannot afford to further deny yourself the enjoyments of this wonderful instrument. Come in and hear the Victrola-hear some of the following Irish melodies t r V embodied it, partly because of the but, and I thought: 'Can it be possible I've been in this company tifteen days and didn't know such a person existed?' So we went to hear her second performance and were transfixed; -we ; didn't think It could be true, but we ' went again and found it was. She has too many beautiful characteristics to lie appreciated fully at the first hear- increasing rarity of great singers of the type required for its execution. And the opinion that Galli-Curci is a great singer is almost unanimous. "A great musician with a voice of wonderful quality,"' was the phrase used by William Thorner. through ! whom she obtained the Chicago en j gagement that gave her the start to ing. I have all her records on the Victrola and play them by the hour. "I was so excited about her debut here! I didn't think there was any doubt as to her success, for I knew her quality, and I knew the New York audiences as the kindest In the world but 1 was as excited as If she were my the distinction. 'There is something-in her voice like the heart of a pansy." was the more poetic description given by Gerald ine Farrar, who .was one of the mo--:| ardent G-alb>Curci enthusiasts before the Chicago star camo to New- York, and wh,o stood up in her seat! own sister, for, of course, the appear- I..  \.. ,i.:,.i _____.,,,.i . 1. _ ---i .. -.----- ,..,, ----1,_, r._ -1. r*r\ *ti1e In the, third row to lead the applause for Galli-Curci in "Dinorah." In a type of singing where spectacular tricks to catch a not over critical audience are possible, musicians assert that Galli-Curci has won her audiences by a performance in which ance was an ordeal. So when this tremendous, genuine enthusiasm broke out after "Dinorah," It wae as it wings had parted and showed her la all her glory.
