GENERAL GARFIELD AT MENTOR. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Weekly Chronicle — 7 May 1881

GENERAL GARFIELD AT MENTOR. rFrom the London World of Un-ch 9 1 At about an hour's journey from Cleve land, Ohio— 'the Railroad City,' upon ?which the fingers of the ubiquitous British capitalist were bud long ago — there lies a small township, of some two or three hundred souls, called Mentor. The rail road upon which it is situated is 'the Lake Shore and Michigan Southern,' one of the great arteries connecting the eastern seaboard with the Far West. Naturally enough, on such a thoroughfare, the tra veller meets a motley crowd of representa tives of every nation under heaven — hosts of Englishmen ; hordes of Northern peoples of the European Continent-, Scandinavians uncountable; great numbers of Germans; groups of Russians ; many Welsh, booked through for the Mormon territory ; hare and there a small parcel of Spaniards, Italians, or French, who have been tempted by the glowing reports of adventurous rela tives to emigrate to California.

ADELINA PATTI. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Weekly Chronicle — 7 May 1881

ADELINA PATH. (Fran London Truth, of February 21.] The Patti is Italian by descent, a Madri line by birth, a Yankee by nurture. She was born very nearly thirty-eight years ago, that is on the 9 th of April, 1843, re ceiving at her christening the euphonious names of Adelina Maria Ciorinda. Taken stan early age to America, she made her first appearance on the stage at New York in the winter of 1S59-C0, before she was Eeventeen. Her success was complete, for ?which she had to thank first her own genius, and secondly, the lovingly careful training of Maurice Strakosch, her brother-in-law. Of course she soon made up her mind to cross the Atlantic, for though Americans pay well, they are not exactly the kind ef people among -whom an artist uBually cares to dwell. She came to England in the Epring of 1861. Opera-goere still remember the 14th of May in that year, when Patti, as Amina in the ' SonnambubV 'first con fronted an English aadience. From that day her life has been one long series...

Sams years ago, when subscriptions were being col lected far the building of the cathedral, I was one of these who subscribed to the fund in the hope of seaing the building carried out, and that when visiting the city on Sundays I could go to a place of worship and take my £eat withutrt feeling that I was ccenpyinga seat for which nine one else was paying, although he might not be present at the time. On my first visit to the cathedral I walked in and took a eeat— a good one I willadmit. I had not been seated long before I was tapped on the shoulder by a gentleman in a black gown and requested to take a seat lower down, he saying at the same tke tbat that seat belonged to some one else.
