Madame Nordlca waa. placed under the
care of. a physician, who remained In con
stant attendance up her until April 1,
when she sailed for Batavla. It , was
against the advice of her-physicians that
she made the trip.
Arriving here, the singer seemed very
, ill,- but recovered somewhat after a stay
of three- weeks. The Improvement, how-
.ever, -was only temporary.
It was the Intention of Madame Nordica
J when she came here to sail for Genoa,
, where she was to meet her husband,
George W. Young, a, New York banker.
She already" had taken passage for the
voyage when the relapse occurred.
Lillian Nordlca. was an American singer
of world-wide fame. Her admirers
ranged from the .men pf the, .Bow.ery" sec
tion of New York, where she had sung
at mission meetings, to the most critical
boxholders of -grand opera -houses In all
of the world's great musical centers, The
HJUrity of her voice, employed In many
tongues, had delighted hundreds at, thou

and they made up a ' notable American
contribution to the operatic world'. A

greatgrandfather on a hill Just outside
the village' of Farmlngton. 'Me., was
Nordlca's blrthplsce. in J8S9. Her true
name was Lillian Norton. She changed
It tb the Italian, Nordica, twenty years
later when she began to study In Italy
for an operatic career. ,
After her graduation from the New
England Conservatory of Music at Bos
ton, and successful singing- or the leading
roles in several of the oratorios given, by
tho Haendel and Haydn society, she went
to Europe, In 1878. as a soloist with, GJ1
more's band. She clung tenaciously to
classical music, and was well received
by great audlencesin-tha Crystal Palace,
tondon, and the Trpcadero, 'Pari. She
decided to rernaln In ,Europ, and attempt,
an operatic career. She went, to Milan
and became a pupil of Uargiovanni, and
within six months she Had mastered ten
Debnt at Drescla.
Her debut in ppera was at Breaela, n

8t. Petersburg she appeared for trial be
fore Ambrose Thomas and the lm
pressarlo, Vancorbell, who engaged her
for .the Grand Opera, house ,ln Paris. Her
first appearance" there. In .1882. as Mar
guerite In "Faust," was a triumph- The
critics observed her American accent, but
said It, gave piquancy to her tone, and
her acting was lauded as equal' to her
She returned to . America and. toured
this country with great success. - in the
succeeding years -she appeared in opera
or concert n almost every city of mu
sical culture In the world. Her -repertoire
included more than fifty operas.
Her success with Wagnerian roles be
came the pinnacle of her fame. At Bay
reuth In 1891 she appeared as Elsa In
"Lohengrin" and she Is, perhaps, best
remembered In that part. She received
decorations of various sorts abroad, and
gifts without number from friends at
home. The stockholders of the Metro
politan opera house presented her with
a diamond tiara.
Her matrimonial ventures numbered
threo. She wss first married in 1833 to

later found, nothing was ever heard or
seen of him.

FLOUTING THE COLD PLUNGE
Cherished Institution Is a
for All bnt Robnat
And now we have one of the most
cherished of Anglo-Saxon myths the cold
plunge attacked by Dr. Morgan aMcWhln
nle 'in tho Medical Journal. It is, he
says, too great a . strain on the nervous
system. The late David G. Phillips, who
was always preaching something in every
thing that he wrote, attacked the cold
bath on this ground and on the ground
'that It was not a bath but a dissipation.
'He characteristically declared that if on
never bathed in blood-warm water, .''he
was as dirty as an Englishman." Unques
tionably to those of robust constitution n
cold plunge is a "bracer," a dissipation,
as Phillip said, and if the constitution is
or remains so that the plunge ' can : be'
taken without harm it stands for full
value in that line of indulgences. But it
Is only at the expense of any constitution,
the doctor says. It does not add' to life
and strength and is simply an added trial
to both Just as exposure to untoward con
ditions In other things Is. In other words,
It s an Indulgence In an -jxtreme tonic,
and its, good effects are only resultant su
long as the constitution of those that in
dulge can stand It. The whole tendency,
be It said of Dr. McWhlnnlo's argument.
Is In line with a growing belief that tonic
effects of any kind are to be looked to
carefully with a View to after1 results.
There Is always a reaction from whatever
extreme of remedy or temporary relief
be applied. The question Is whether the
patient or person using them can better
take the tonic effects and recover from
these later, or whether ho Is In condition!
to recover frbm his affliction as It stands
and so not have to recover later from the
tonic. For the bath It Is pretty plain
that the coldness of the water Is for tonic
effect. It souses the hody and reduces
the temperature with, a shock. A robust
constitution recovers from the shock and
there Is a pleasant exhilaration as a con
sequence. So there Is from a great many
ether Indulgences. Is a shock of any kind
such as these a wise way of preserving
health and strength? It is no way at all.
according to the doctor's argument. It Is
a shock, a tonic, and nothing more, and
It Is at the expense of vitality. Indianap
