MacCameron worked In Uila atudlo on a
picture that he haa au tilted "Tha Peo

last year and which la coon to be
rlted In Chicago
The old man who poaed for ah can'
cral figure Is almost a helpless crip-
ml. MacCameron found him selling
Ksapaw in tha etreeta of Parla. Ha
jaould hardly move, wasted by dlaeaae
ssjad hunger, and It needed no physician
to tell that the man had not long to
live. MacCameron saw in hi face the
etuhllmlty that comes from suffering
gala read there the dignity of pain, and
ha aaw akao tha sure Indication of
ewaath. The old man became one of
(iCacCam iron's models, whloh mean

Just th faces he wanted. The men are
ne'er-do-wells, drunkards or psrbap

la well not to inquire too cloaely Into
her career. The atory of her aufferlng

the marks of refinement, for aha Is

made long and conscientious study of
light effects. He has given more atten
tion to the matter than any stsge

ducing exactly the effects of night. In
a screened-off portion of the studio the
models take their pose and the artist
by means of colored glaases obtains the
