Lillian Klma is an Knj;lisli woman b

born in Loudon Sept. l:t, isiis, mid appeartd
on thuHtime for Hie first time, at an early

when sho came to America, w heru shore,

Klmn was, in sss, married to Francis J.
frilly, a Philadelphia lawyer.

The union was not a happy one, and in
1W Miss Klmn scoured a divorce from her
husband. She had at the time left the
KtiWi temporarily and entered the National
Conservatory of Music for the purpose of
ciiltivBtinu her voice for urand oera. She
had intended to remain in t he conservatory
for several years longer than she did, but
wns unable to withstand the temptation of
a very MatterinK offer held out to her by
(ins Williams to create the prima donua
role of Annie Condor In his new play,
' April Fool."
She is once more In New York assldu.
Piisly pursuing her musical studies and
duriiiK the cominx summer will probably
accept an offer which has lieen made to her
by a prominent manager to become the
prima donna of a large comic opera com
pany which will be organized to give the
old favorites on an elaborate scale. Strange
to say, Miss Klma does not like the stage
and w ould leave it if she could afford to do
so. She is a great Btiidentand reads when
ever she Is not studying. She lias a high
fcoprano voice of great flexibility and power.
Miss Klma pleads guilty to being what
Jie falls a "phonograph crank," and she
has a magnillcent instrument in her room
which she uses In the testing of her voice
and also as a source of amusement. Miss
Klmslms a strong but pretty face and
lioauufully rounded figure. She uasnochil
dren, and this, she confesses, is the great
est regret of her life. Lfcr LAWN.
