We Will Show You How!
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" is 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 sup-,
ply 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. Be
ing right on the spot, and knowing at all times just what
sort of plots are wanted by the producers, 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 se
crets of success.
We are selling photoplays written by peo
ple who "never before wrote for publication."
Perhaps we can do the same for you. I you can think of only
one good idea every week, and will write it out as directed by us.

to throw after the bride. These
may be bought from the florist, or
can be fashioned from tissue paper.
A pretty idea is to use petals of the

be heaped on a big salver and pass

Treatment of Carrier Diseases.
The treatment of disease carriers
from the view point of Preventive
Medicine is two-fold, first, their iso
lation; second, their cure. When
disease carriers are isolated from
normal people, they cease to spread
the disease in question. The nor
mal people then have no means of
coming in contact with the infec
tion. This may be illustrated by
the work done in some of the large
State Hospitals where formerly ty
phoid fever was present a great por
tion of the year. All of the patients
were examined and the typhoid car
riers detected and put in a ward so
tbat they no longer came in contact
with the normal patients. Typhoid
fever then ceased to develop.
This is a conclusive demonstration
of the danger of typhoid carriers
in the community and the possibili
ty of preventing typhoid fever by
isolation of the typhoid carriers.
Naturally in a community the ty
phoid carriers, even when detected,
cannot be isolated. The question is
what should be done with them.
There are two ways of dealing with
them so that they may not be a
menace to society. First, teach
them how to protect well people
from coming in contact with infect
ed matter arising from their sys
tems; second, treat them with the
purpose of freeing them from dis
ease germs so that they again be
come normal people.

The Identification Complete.
In his New York speech before
the Southern society. Governor Wil
son, speaking of panics, said: "The
machinery is in existance by which
the thing can be deliberately done.
Frankly, I don't believe there is any
man living who dares to use ma
chinery for that purpose. If he
does. I promise him, not for myself,
but for my fellow countrymen, a
gibbet as high as Hainan's."
He doesn't mention any naine3
but several prominent financiers
were seen to dodge when they read
it. The identification is as complete
as it was in the case of the poker
player, a one eyed man. who was
suspected of cheating. Another
man at the table stood it as long as
he could and then courteously re
monstrated: "I do not mean to be
peronal, but if the man who has
been cheating cheats any more I'll
shoot bis other eye out." -Bryan's
