NE evening in the early summer of

So it is a pretty big- business, pretty thor
oughly organized, quite t'niversal in its reach,
soap-bubbly in its univers~ulity.
The child of the p~oor, with a clay pipe and the

cloth, some benches for the spectators, an oper
ator at ten dollars a week, and a rented film, now
takes the place of a company of actors, stage
scenery, properties, lights and a properly
equip~ped building. And the poor boy gets as
much value for his nickel as the rich boy can get
for any number of dollar-s.
Yet, they imu into dangers that no soap-bubbles
can allure. Fire Is of these the most patent.

A Par1iit~n manufacturer offered $200.000 for
the right to mlako moving pictures of the Ober

lie went back to his studio, engaged a company
of very skillful actors, rehearsed them carefully
and reproduced the Passion Play, almost as well
as It\was originally dono, and the cost was about
a twentieth (if what he offered for the original.
This manufacturer had an eye on a new field
for the moving picture. While his imitation will,
perhaps, find a comparatively small market, it
cannot hope to reach the class that would have
purchased a guaranteed reproduction of the
Oberammergau play; viz., the churches.
