that ts left after a tour of Inspection
when the valedictory echoes, of New
Yeur Kvo had died away and when
strangers wore still coming In from
tlmn to tlmo uiul demanding Indignant
ly to be told why Old Susquehanna ryo
was no longer available. Patrons nnd
proprietors of tho saloons still had the
air of hnrdly believing that It could be
true. They stood about a If waiting
for some one lo snap his fingers and
awaken them from thn bad dream. '
There Is an atmosphere of sudden

years ns it wouiu on 10 sumo mp vn
Winkle returning hither for tho first

hene all tho time have seen the saloon
go through a gradual process 01 evolu
tion, from the time when everything
went until tho present day era. and
have observed that it wes a process of
steady restriction inae mauo me sa
loons more and nion orderly and unex
citing right up to the ultimate change
that took place January 1.
Fifteen years ago tho local restric
tions on saloons were hardly worth
mentioning. Ao long as a saloon did
not sta;o,too many homicide in a short
space of tlmo It could operate unmo
lested. Then, about the time gambling
became a felony successive city admin
istrations began to make rules govern
ing the conduct of drtnklnr places.
They made them close at 3 in the morn
ing, and there were proloivred searches
for keys that had never been1 used.
Then tho curtained wlnerooms and the
"ladles' entrances" went, and the elec
tric pianos ami some of the slot ma
chines. High license came along and
the number of saloons dwindled. Sun

tight after some resistance.
Free lunches, condemned on sanitary
grounds, disappeared, again after
some resistance. Screen anf1 opaque
windows wero removed, so that any
one could get from the sidewalk a com
prehensive view of any calnon Inter
ior. Closing- time became 12-SO. Tho re
tirement of demon rum in favor of car
bonated flir was more radical than any
of the other moves, but It was after
all only a logical outcome.
Thus It haa come to pass that one
may stand tn front of an identical bar
where not long ago It was an Insult to
ask for anvthtng less potent than n,

HAIR GETS THICK,
Actress Explains How
She Keeps Her Youth
i ir .
"The good looks of an actress are
without question one of the most Im
portant Items In her assets, or,' as one
might say, her stock In trode," siys
Wllda Bennett, whose personal attract
iveness adda no little charm to "The
Only Girl," The Henry Blossom-Victor
Herbert musical comedy, the attraction
at the Belasco Theater next week.
"It is the duty of every actress to
guard her looks most sedulously, for as
long as she is young and charming she
need have no fear that her popularity
win wane. In the case' of tho ordinary
woman, she Is only called upon to take
more or less caro of her good looks
or what modicum of beauty nature has
endowed her with and Jf she lapses in
her enthusiastic attention to skin, hair,
eyes, and figure, the result is not fatally
serious she can go on and enjoy life
Just the same, and perhaps when she
has more time, take up her massage,
her exercise, her treatments, and phys
ical culture again.
"Work, like acting, sets lines In the
face that If not carefully combated,
would soon add years to one's appear
ance. "The actress then is forced to give
many hours of her 'leisure' time, when
not on the stage; to the conservation
of her beauty. She also must devote
some of the time to the preservation of
her health; and fencing lessons, horse
back exercise or long walks in the
suburbs often take up a portion of her
day. 8bJ J also compelled to keep up
her dancln. 'or her music by taking
lessons outside of her regular work.
It is also necessary that a certain
amount of her time be given over to
"After this fitful day. there remains
Ilttlo tlmo for writing the many neces
sary notes, or for enjoying tho -nn-panlonshlp
of friends. Yet the uctress
keeps her youth and her attractiveness
longer than women In any other walk
of life even the woman who has plenty
of money nnd nothing to do but to take
care of herself. Why Is this?
"What mysterious charm if youth
dees tho actress possess: what access to
the eternal Fountain of Youth? specu
lates the discouraged ordinary woman,
who begins to grow old at thlrty-rtvo
that sho can sway hearts and act the
part of a dobutante successfully when
other women of her own generation
attend the play 'with their grand
daughters? "The actress, for one thing Is always
in the atmospherq of youth.
"Tho actress, being a part of the
drama, has even before and around her
the influence of beauty and of charm
upon the sterner sex. The sex Instinct
and the relations of men and women
toward each other form the chief in
terest of almost every play woman's
charm, woman's fascination, her little
tricks of cajolery and magnetism, and
man's surrender thereto ull these aro
paramount Influences in the drama. Is
It not reasonable to suppose then, that
the woman dwelling and working in
such an atmosphere never forgets the
youth In herself."
