THE DRAMA AS SHOWN
IZSEAT PLATS TO BE PffO
famous Actors and Actresses to
Play the Parts in All but
Paris. May 5.
Verr <*a-'y one morning the writer, taking a
walk In the Bois <Se» Boulogne to breathe in the
Creel: aromas of the spring, saw -what at first
right Merged to be a uniquely- dramatic spec
tacle. An elegantly dressed damsel, accom
panied by a handsome poodle, was seated on a
beach under a chestnut tree in fresh leaf, read
!r^ a letter. A smart Parisian approached on
horseback, followed by a groom. The woman did
not perceive him until he was close by, and then
ah* ottered a scream. Ke quickly alighted from
his horse, which he rave to- the keeping of the
groom, and, springing toward the young woman,
he endeavored to snatch from her the letter -she
was reading. There was a momentary struggle;
then the dog, cleverly catching the letter which
was thrown to him by the young woman, dashed
off with it. plunged into the "lac inferleur."
which was Just opposite the spot where this ani
mated scene occurred. swam across and disap
peared in the thickest part of tha wood. •..«
The man followed him. splashing and wading
and half swimming in the shallow water of the
lake, but by the time he. too, was out of sight
he had rot caught up with the dog. The woman,
•who at first seemed to be overcome by excite
ment, gave a few brief instructions to the stolid
looking groom, who led away the horse, and
then she resumed her walk through the Bate
with a look of quiet contentment on her face.
Evidently the man on horseback who had been
•o urigallant as to try to snatch a letter from
her hAnds must have been her husband, and his
Jealous movement could only, be explained on
tie assumption that he- suspected the letter to
t-» from a lover. The admirably trained poodle
had been equal to the occasion, and was no
doubt dashing back to , the lover's apartment
xrttr. the compromising document in Its mouth.
In the. mean while a man with a cinematograph
•ppparatus had been registering every detail of
this scene, the actors In which were, In point of
fact, two of the best known artists of the
-RTAT. EIAUSM THIS
Here was only an incident in a complete play
to be reproduced by the cinematograph; but it
was evidence of the multiplicity of dramatic
♦•rects which the cinematograph Is expected to
place at the disposition of the. projected Theatre
da Cinematographe. For It 16 contended by the
promoters of this new theatre that they will be
able to represent drama in much greater detail
than has been hitherto possible on the ordinary
stage. Less therefore Trill be left to the imagina
tion of the spectators. A man is thrown, for
argument's sake, out of the window. Instead of
tie curtain falling upon his disappearance over
tIM balcony of the apartment the public will be
able to watch Ma flight to earth and hie col
lapse upon th* ground. The cinematograph will
centuple • •-«. potential of the modern drama in
the matter of realism.
The promoters of the Theatre dv Cinemato
graph* ax» the Brothers LafStte, and among
th«lr most enthusiastic backers are M. Pat-he,
i," practically has the monopoly of cinemato
frsphlc reproductions in France, and M. Le
Barsr. th- eminent comedian, who Is not only
financially interested hi the venture, tut will
bring to its aid his unique experience and.au

calse. MM. LaStte are actually engaged in
ftifnitiig a Joint stock company with a capita! of
$100,000. under the- name of "L* Film dArt"
Ytm Artistic Film"), the object of which la the
creation ef a theatre where entire plays, both
old and r.«" will be represented by cinemato
The main novelty of the scheme, is in the fact
that the performance* will not be restricted, as
has hitherto been the cause, to pantomime.
Though they will not be heard by the specta
tors, the artists will speak their roles. They
-pr-;- ; be mute, although represented on the dne
natopraphlc curtain as reciting or declaiming
verse ... prose. No attempt will b« made to call
la the services ■■' the phonograph. but the
Brothers LafStte. M. I» Bargy and the most
mm l French dramatists of to-day are con
y-red that by means of the cinematograph. If
tfce '•tails of the scene are «uf3clently elabo
rit*dL~rot only the play of the actors can be
—presented, but the illusion of the voice can
be to a certain Mure given so that the spec
t_m be * b]e to comprehend the entire text

With all these authors and artists the Brothers
LafStte have already drawn up firm contracts,
and the leading idea of the Cinematograph Thea
tre has certainly met with an enthusiastic re
ception in both literary and dramatic circles.
The Brothers L*ffltte's further ambition 1. to
become the world"? largest publishers of cine
matographic scenarios. Hitherto they have been
chiefly known as leaders in the advertisement
trade. They do not hesitate to declare that
their cinematographic representations of th*
masterpieces of French dramatic literature will
soon be Indispensable to all universities as the
standard editions of classics issued by such firms
as Hachette and Calmann-Levy. .
In the meanwhile all that is wanting to make
the Cinematograph Theatre as faithful a delinea
tor of the human drama a. the ordinary theatre
Is the application of color to the scenes. Until
the Inventor comes forward with a satisfactory
means of producing cinematographic representa
tions !n color only one tint will In general be
employed for the cinematographic scenarios,
namely bistre, the delicate brown of old engrav
ing's, but when poetry la being performed, as in
tha case of'M. Edmond Rostand's "Bols Sacre,"
a pale blue tint will be substituted.
It is at the Salle Charras that the rehearsals,
as It were, of thy Cinematograph Theatre are
i) m being carried on with feverish activity.
Here authors and artists meet every afternoon
and discuss ihe conditions needed for this new
form of dramatic art. It is here that the first
performances will be given, after which one of
the larger boulevard theatres will become the
home of the new enterprise if It prove, as 'suc
cessful as MM. L«iffltte expect. C. I. B.

ALCOHOL FROM PEAT.
Writing from Mannheim. Consul Saauiei M.
Shank says that the Lars* deposits nt peat IB
America which have- hitherto been of practically
no value may prove- to be of great worth it the
recent experiments of a Frencn chemist to .— —
tilling alcohol from peat prove to be practical, a*
now seems probable. He gives the- following ta
formatlon upon the prugress made:
The first industrial trials for manufacturing al
cohol from peat date from the year W». when
the Danish chemist Zetterlund bydrated and con
verted by means of sulphuric acid the celiulcsa
of the peat into a soluble carbohydrate, whics *a*
fermented by letting It stand. The vry small r«>
duction obtained In the beginning was increased by
dlff«T<?nt chemists. Including Lagerheim. Trea
tadlus and Eckardsstrom.
Important progress has been made In the las.
two years by Raynand by fermenting the carbo
hydrate sap 'by means or a special yeast, whicn
has hitherto been kept secret. A Copenhagen com
par.y has been founded, which already has two
experimental plants established, •■• in Denmark
and the other In France. The results obtained ■■"'
said to be so encouraffine that the erection of an
Industrial plant In the North of Germany Is tggni
nent. According to statements made by Professor
Ramsay, one ton of dry peat ia said to furalsa
about 162 litres tone litre equals 1.C5 quarts) pure
spirits and about *5 pounds of sulphate o; ammo
nia of 100 per cent.
The Danish company asserts that the wmifism;
urtns; costs of on« litre of alcohol of 97 per ce«*
are at most 11 pfennigs '2 cents), whereas the
cost of the proces of dist!l!!n< from potato** Ii
about S3 pfennigs to 42 pfennigs O cents to 1
