Wakes a Bit in OptM
From a simple little country girl.
Miss Minnie Schwartz, of Chadron, Ne
braska, has risen to a prominent part
in the "Prince of Pilsen." It is almost
like a fairy tale,, and something that
few Nebraska girls have ever done.
Miss Schwartz was born In Chadron
and until two or three years ago was
content to spend her time riding and
hunting about her father's ranch. She
did not have much time to think about
things that did not pertain to the
simple unaffected life about her, and
she had no opportunity to even sit in
front of the footlights, and be fascinat
ed with the music, the lights and the
flowers. Her father made business
trips to Omaha frequently, and some
times took his little girl with him.
On one occasion they attended the
theatre. 1 was when Alice Neilsen was
there in "The Singing Girl." The little
girl was charmed and carried the
memory of the opera and the tuneful
music home with he,r. She resolved
that she would learn to sing and
thought of a far distant day when she
would stand behind the footlights and
people would applaud her. Just an tiiey
had Miss Neltson. Any way she did
not ride any more; she deserted her
porjles, guns, and her dogs, and began
to study music. Then she Went to
Chicago to attend n musical college.
Her chance to sing came at last.
The "Prince of Pilsen" company was
being formed at the Studebnker and
she was given a place In the chorus.
She has been successful and the nttle
girl of the prairies has forgotten her
romping days, and is thinking serious
ly of a career.
In the "Prince of Pilsen" there is a
song In which a city is represented
by each girl. Miss Schwartz asked to
play Chicago. The manager of the
company tells of her intense interest In
her work and adds:
"When the parts were being cast a
girl who was raised on "a Nebraska
ranch usked to play Chicago.
"We gave It to her. and from the
first performance she has never
stopped building up her conception of
the part. The other girls, who are all
easterners, were content to sing their
stanzas well and to gracefully wear
the clothes the management furnished.
"But the little Nebraska woman ad
ded flrsjt a pair of gloves, then more
characteristic shoes. Each night she
Improved on the singing and often in
troduced original business until' her
one stanza became a really artistic
conception, which stood out distinctly
from the rest.
"This girl is typical of all western
Blade Well, old man, have you made
any progress In your married life?
Grasse I should say so. When I was
first married we quarreled for an hour
and spent two days In making up; now
we quarrel two days and make up In
an hour. Town Topics.
Tom Tes, I should call that- a real
love letter, hot from her heart. '
Charles But say, suppose it Is only
part of a cold plot to arouse the other
fellow's Jealousy? Town Topics.
