If you have ideas if you can THINK we will show you the '
secrets of this fascinating new profession. Positively no experience
or literary excellence necessary. No "flowery language" wanted. "
The demand for photoplays is practically unlimited. The big film
manufacturers are "moving heaven and earth" 'in their attempts to
get enough good plots to supply the ever increasing demand. ' They
are offering $100 and more for single scenarios, or written ideas. ;
Nearly all the big film companies, the buyers of photoplays, are
located in or near NEW YORK CITY. Being right on the spot, and
' knowing at all times just what sort of plots are wanted by the pro
ducers, our SALES DEPARTMENT has a tremendous advantage
over agencies situated in distant cities.
We have received many letters from the big film manufacturers, ,
such as VITAGRAPH, EDISON, ESSANAY, LUBIN, SOLAX, IMP,
REX, RELIANCE, CHAMPION, COMET, MELIES, ETC., urging
us to send photoplays to them. We want more writers and we'll
gladly teach you the secrets of success.
We are selling photoplays written by people who "never '
before wrote a line for publication,"
Perhaps we can do the same for you. If you can think of only
one good idea every week, and will write it out as directed by us, and
it sells for only $25, a low figure,

There are days for idle dreaming
Wheu'the world is void and still
And the morrows promise tenure
Of the yielding, placid will;
When the present holds no shadows
And the past is vague and far;
When the heart forgets its brusings
And the wounds betray no scar.
There are idle days unnumbered
When the vision is enthralled,
When the hearing lists to voices
That in former days have called
And renewed in timely musings
To repeat in phrase and tone
What must come to waken power
In the realm of dreams alone.
There are idle days and moments
When an inspiration flares,
In ambition's name to quicken
Thoughts that haunt us unawares,
And they pass beyond the yearning
To fulfillment and the end; ,
Had one idle moment faltered
Time could not its loss amend.

refused to discuss the matter or
