' omesekers from all over tha United
? Tha west, which haa remained so long a
terra Incognita to most of the people who
dwell eatt of 'he Mississippi, haa suddenly
coma Into prominence aa a land of golden
opportunities and a large Influx of settlers
hns followed. An enormous amount of
money has already been expended by tha
government and by private enterprise to
make habitable many fertile valleys In
the west. New communities are springing
up in tha arid states and territories so
rapidly that It Is difficult to keep pace
with tha development. An especially In
teresting and cheering phase of the growth
of these communities is 'he splendid class
of clllaens who have established them
selves in tha new country. They are
largely tha young, vigorous and Intelligent
descendants of the pioneers of the Missis
sippi valley who have been crowded out
of the thickly settled agricultural districts
by reason of the growth in population and
the high price of farm lands. They repre
sent the ' best and most progressive citl
ii ns of the country, and their coming to
the wost predicates the upbuilding In an
incredibly short time of sgrlcultural com
munities which will be as nearly Ideal as
can be found anywhere In the world.
To neat the steadily Increasing demand
for homes on the land, the government is
extending Its Irrigation works . as rapidly
as the funds will permit. On a few of the
great projects there are farms remaining
which are open to homeseekers under the
liberal, terms of the reclamation act. For
the Information of a very large class of
homeseekers, a brief description of several
of these large projects Is appended.
Shoshone Projeot, Wyoming.
The lands in this projeot were opened to
settlement on May 22, 1909, and are rapidly
being taken up. About 100 farms are still
available. These farms, as a rule, are
level, requiring no expense for clearing.
They are near towns and within easy
distance of the railroad. In size they
range from forty to eighty acres depend
ing upon nearness to towns. The farms
have been platted in such a manner that
there are eight farm houses along each
mile of the main highways, thus contribut
ing to nelghborllness and eliminating
loneliness. In the brief period of four
months the country has taken on an ap
pearance of a suburban community. Here
is a region possessing ' an equable and
healthful climate, a fertile soil adapted
to a wide variety of crops, with coal and
oil In the near neighborhood and with ex
cellent transportation facilities. This
son's crops warrant the prediction that the
Shoshone region will become In a short
time one of the most prosperous farming
districts In the northwest
Huntley Project, Wyoming.
Situated In the southern part of Montana
In a part of the valley of the Yellowstone,
where irrigation has been practiced suc
cessfully for many years, the Huntley pro
ject offers many advantages and attrac
tions to the homeseeker and to all classes
of professional and business men and
mechanics. More than 300 families are now
established in homes on this project.
several thousand acres have been put In
crops, and the growth of the new towns Is
keening pace with the agricultural de
velopment. With two transcontinental
railroads traversing the entire valley, no
farm Is more than two and one-half miles
from a shipping station.
Agricultural experts predict that apples
aitd other hardy fruits will become im
portant wealth producers in this section,

haa been filed upon, there are oppor

by law. These lands are' held at such
reasonable prices that setttlers who de

projects and others which have been

The possibilities of producing a genuine

was called to Mr. Nevin's attention by
Walter McCltntock, whose history of the
folk lore and legends of the Blackfeet

Poia sets out and endures great hard
ships before he finally reaches the court of

only son. The scar is effaced, and Pola
is seen coming down the Wolf Train, as

SINGERS' CAINS AND LOSSES
Fortunes Quickly Earned and at
ARTISTS WHO KEPT THEIR MONEY
Speculation and Great Expenditures
Reasons Why Operatic Careers
Often End In Poverty Cafe
( the Aetors.
NEW YORK. Oct t-Mme. Melba's re
ported loss of fortune Is attributed to the
great expense of her way of living rather
than to speculation, the usual means by
which operatic savings disappear. She had
a house In Park Lane, London, which she
built without regard to cost, and a homi
In Paris. In reoent years she has assocl
ated with the titled aristocracy of Eng
land, and that costs money even in the
case of a famous prima donna.
Then she has not sung so frenquently as
In former years, although her expenses
conttuued to Increase, notably after the
marriage of her son to the daughter of an
English general, a marriage that soon
ended In the divorce courts. How much
Mme. Melba's expenditures on the BrltlBh
aristocracy helped her was shown by the
alacrity with which society established
her rival at Covent Garden.
It has always been said that Alfred
Rothschild, who did the same for Adeline
Paul, had Invested Mme. Melba's earnings
for her In the most advantageous way.
Her father, a contractor in Melbourne, Is
rich, so Mme. Melba will never know want
Her career was different from that of most
singers In that she' never knew poverty.
Mme. pattl is perhaps the richest of the
singers, although Christine Nllsson, who
sold her Boston real estate several years
ago and Invested the proceeds In Sweden,
has an ample fortune. It was surnrlslno:
to learn years ago that Edouard da
Reszkc, who received more than twice as
much as any other basso during the au
premacy of his brother, was so much in
need of money that he had begun to teach
in London. It was not unusual for Ed
ouard de Reszke to sing five times a week
at the Metropolitan, and as he never re
ceivea less man ivw nis earnings were
large. He used to threaten Mr. Urau with
lawyers when that astute manager tried
to limit his appearance to a normal num
Now he has been In financial difficulties
In spite of his economical way of life in
New York, while Pol Plancon, the other
baeBO of the company during the Grau
days, Is a man of sufficient wealth to live
with comfort in France for the rest of his
days. He was a bachelor, while Edouard
de Reszke was the father of five daugh
ters. M. de Reszke lost money In un
fortunate business speculation and In
the attempt to farm In Poland.
It was during the Russo-Japanese
war that his misfortunes in this particu
lar began. His best servants were drafted
for the army and his best horses taken
without compensation by the Russian
government which Is none too consld
erate of its Polish subjects. The result
was that he had to go to London to teach
after Oscar Hammersteln cancelled his
tentative contract with the Manhattan.
Jean de Reszke might have had little
or nothing when he retired, aa keeping up
a racing stable and entertaining Russian
grand dukes are expensive pastimes.
He came out all right however, as his
wife has some fortune, and for ten months
of the year he earns 1250 a day teaching,
Mme. Lehmann, who Is said to have
willed all her fortune to the Society for
the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals In
Berlin, made her substantial fortune here,
although she haa not been in this country
for seven years. She must earn between
$10,000 and $15,000 a year by her appear
ances In Germany. After she came to
sing In this country . her success at the
Metropolitan led her to break hsr contract
with the Royal opera house In Berlin,
She lost nothing by being expelled from
the opera houses In the Cartel Vereln,
however, for her earnings In America
during one season exceeded what she
could have made In ten years at the Royal
opera house in Berlin.
She saved her money, Invested In real
estate, never speculated, and has always
lived with the greatest simplicity. So
she can well afford to give all the pro
ceeds of her concerts nowadaya to charity
This is her practice nowadays.
Emma Calve got, ahead of her relatives
by buying a fat annuity, so she will not
be one of the prtma donnas to be eaten
alive by her poor relatives. Lilll Lehmann

Mme. Nordica did not get Into the list
of high priced prima donnas until much
later than many other singers. During
the later years of her career her earnings
Mme. Gadskl's four years outside the
operatlo barriers must have decreased her
earnings, although she Is a popular singer
In concert and there were never any
signs that she felt it necessary to de
or ease the number of her automobiles or
the hospitality of her home. Olive Frem
stad's earnings practically began when ahe
came to the Metropolitan opera house, an
her contract there made by Helnrlch Con
ried called for forty representations at
$1,000 each. This was one of the Conreld
contracts that it was found impossible to
carry out so Miss Premstad consented
to take half the number of her guaran
teed appearances In concert, end it is not
probable that she lost anything through
Mme. Sembrlch, who has had a long
career and was at the top of the ladde
from the start laid the foundation of her
fortune when Henry E. Abbey paid her
$150,000 and her expenses during her first
tour of this country. Since that time sh
haa been one of the highest paid of th
prima donnas and has sung every season
but one. She has Invested her money and
Is the 'principal owner of a factory In
Germany that turns out thousands of pos
tal cards and other prints that are ex
ported to all parts of the world.
Emma Eatnes repaid the money ad
vanced for her musical education, and
stayed off the stage altogether for several
seasons, but she had been so well paid
for the two or three seasons preceding her
retirement that she will always be beyond
the need of singing again unless she want
to. And she declares she does not want to.
It is not the singers who receive th
highest salaries, haggle and scrap with the
managers over every penny and squeeze
out the last drop that end with the largest
amount of money. Sofia Bcalchl. the con
tralto, was never one of the high priced
singers of the opera house, but she man

used up a Isrgs part of her earnings for

ome similar Indebtedness last winter, and

robably the largest outlay that the
great singers have Is for their personal
costumes, and there are few of them that
do not have big bills with the Paris dress
makers. Slgnor Caruso's earnings are enormous
since he sings with the Metropolitan Opera
company, and his contract calls for ap
proximately $100,000 every year. Yet he has
recently complained bitterly of the large
amount he was compelled to disburse on
his family and his more remote relatives.
It Is a characteristlo of the high priced
singers to be always waiting for the time
when they have paid all their outstanding
obligations and are going to start in to
save money. Somehow this time never
seems to arrive until after their voices
have begun to go and they are compelled
to crowd all the available possible engage
ments Into the short time left to them.
Contraltos never receive as much as
the sopranos, but both Mmes. Homer and
Schumann-Helnk have lived prudently
enough to save their money. Invest It In
real estate and buy homes In which they
are rearing their families. Another singer
who has accumulated a comfortable for
tune Is Slgnor Scottl, who has not only
been prudent In his expenditures, but well
advised In his Investments.
Andreas Dippei never had a salary like
Caruso's, but he was always very well
paid and had put aside a comfortable
fortune by the time he stepped Into a
salary of $.X),000 a year as conductor of
the Metropolitan. ,
Angelo Malsinl, the great Italian tenor.
who came Into European Importance first
In 1876, when he created Rhadames In the
production of Verdi's "Aida" In Paris,
went back to St. Petersburg to sing two
years ago, although he was well over 60.
The reason was the entire loss of his large
fortune, which he had Intrusted to a friend
for Investment only to see It fade away
within a few months. Italo Campaninl,
who earned a fortune here, lost It in
unsuccessful operatic speculation, largely
through his production of "Othello" here,
and Stegmund Mlerzurnskl, who died the
other day In Paris, spent all his money In
his way of living and was all but penniless
when his voice suddenly failed him. Yet
for a while he was the highest paid tenor
Emello di Marchl had almost the same
experience and for the years from 1803 to
1900 received enormous sums in South
America and Spain, where he sang with
Hercla Darclee. He got $2,000 a night when
he was here with Colonel Mapleson in 1896.
Nowadays, however, he is singing In ob
scure companies at an obscure salary.
Francesco Tamagno probably left a for
tune, as his compensation had been largo
the world over and his economies were
remarkable. He had his brother for a
valet, used to try to sell the two orchestra
seats that went to him by his contracts
on the nights he sang, and was threatened
with suit by a hotel for the damage he
did to the bathroom when he cooked
macaroni there. He never lost any of his
money through extravagant living.
The actress of an older generation seem
to have been much more fortunate In their
investments than some of those who suc
ceeded them. Maggie Mitchell has lived
for more than twenty years In retirement
on the fortune she made and kept while
an actress. Lett a Crabtree Is Just as rich,
and Henrietta Chapman, who died on her
New Jersey farm the other day, had kept
Mrs. Barney Williams, who died In her
home on the upper West Side a few years
ago, left the fortune that belonged to her
and her husband. Mary Anderson had
when she retired from the stage to marry
rich New Yorker most of the thousands
she had earned during her career.
Fanny Davenport used to be - accounted
the richest of American actresses, but she
left nothing. Richard Mansfield's fortune
was much less than It was supposed to be.
