MADAME MELBA, the famous Australian cantatrice, who is just 34 years of age, is a comparatively new singer, having only made her debut at Brussels in October, 1887. Very lowly was the way she started in Melbourne. When she wished to enter upon a singing career, her father somewhat unreasonably opposed. The plucky girl, however, engaged a hall, and proceeded to invite all her friends, and when her father heard of the affair he was so angry that he proceeded to dissuade all the friends from going, and so uphold the parental authority. The result was, when the singer made her first public bow,'she found herself before an audience numbering-two t Now that she receives E40,000 for a South American tour of a few months, Madame Melba can afford to smile as she recalls these times of struggling. Her father's name is Mitchell.
