Mr. Jose, the well known contra tenor, Is one of the most successful ballad singers In the world. Twenty-nine years ago. In Corn- wall, Eng., young Jose's voice was first heard. Even la his early childhood he was set down as one who. In the figurative language of that day, was "bom with a bird In bis throat" The wonderful quality of his vocal resources was an Inheritance from his father, Benor Blcardo Jose, a Spanish tenor, who was fa- mous all over Europe. At the age of six Ulchard was considered the most remarkable chorister In the boy choir in the village church, and his powers grew with his years, until by tbe time he reached the age of ten he became the wonder of the village In which be lived. When be was twelve years old bis father died, leaving a family of seven chil- dren, of which Richard was the oldest. The problem of existence was a hard one for the widow, and so, when Richard's uncle, a stock broker of Virginia City, Nev., suggested that If she would send tbe lad to America he might be able to give him a start In tbe world, she sorrowlngly agreed, and the boy started alone on bis long journey. Tbe voy- age was made In a raging Winter sea, and culminated In a wreck off the Newfoundland coast, from which he, with others on board, escaped in boats. Upon reaching Virginia City, traveling part of the way by stage, his uncle met him, only to leave him three days later. Thus cast upon his own resources, he finally secured a position In a church choir, which brought him a couple of dollars n week. At tbe age of fourteen he was in- duced to go to Carson City, Nev., to slog, but after a snort time this position failed him. He then concluded be would like to be a blacksmith, and went to Reno, Nev., and se- cured a place as apprentice to a blacksmith of that place. In three years be learned the trade, and from that time be was able to make three dollars a day at the forge. He was six years at Reno, engaged In this heavy but healthful work, during which time he managed to go to night school the greater part jf tbe time. All this while, too, he was cultivating his voice. Finally a San Fran- cisco man heard him sing, and Induced him to go to San Francisco, where he had suc- cess from the start He was given an.en- gagement with Reed's Minstrels at $12 a week, and took so well at the opening that his salary was raised to $26 on the follow- ing week, and within a month he was en- gaged by Burch & Cotton to tour California with their minstrel company, at $50 per week. Four months later he waa sent for by Lew Dockstader, and engaged at a salary of $75 per week. Since that time the success of Mr. Jose 1b well known, and few, If any, of the ballad singers command a salary equal to bis. «.» VIRGINIA.
