TA Wonderful Success.
HE Charm of Maude Adams' acting 13 her personality as balHins tc
analysis as a perfume. Delicacy, grace, sweetness, sympathy and sen
sitiveness seem naturally to blend into the effect she desires to produce, and
one surrenders to her acting as to a spell, without trying to spoil it by seek
ing to know the secret of her power.
She was born in Salt Lake City, Utah, in 1872, -where her father, whose
name "was Kiskadden, was in business and her mother an actress in a local
stock company. Her first appearance on the stage was an impromptu affair
so hurriedly arranged that she did not study a line and did not even
rehearse the part. It was when she was nine months old, when the baby
who was to appear in "The Lost Child" grew rebellious and went on a strike
at the last moment, so Maude was taken from her little cradle and carried,
on the stage, where in a few minutes she sweetly crowed her way into the
hearts of the audience. Three years later she played "Little Schneider" to
J. K. Emmet's "Fritz" and has tender memories of this large-hearted lover
At San Francisco, where her girlhood was spent after the death of her
father, she went to school till at fifteen she joined her mother's company at
tho Alcazar theatre. A large repertoire and a small company forced her to
rapid changes of roles, quick study and to sweep the circle of the emotions.
She made fair success in "The Paymaster," "Men and Women." "All the
Comforts of Home" and "A Midnight Bell"; but not until 1892, a3 John
Drew's leading lady In "The Masked Ball," did she make her preat hit. Her
tlrsy scene in that play was a part perilously near the danger line, but om
that her,geniu3 made delicate, dainty and deliciously funny, never crossing
for an instant the Rubicon of vulgarity.
As Babbie in "The Little Minister" Miss' Adams' charming madcap wavs
with her clever innocence, captivated her audiences; in Juliet her gentle,
sympathetic girl-like portrayal of the character, with its natural youthfulncc3
and simplicity, followed none of the stage traditions, yet it was Intensely
real and human with a wondrous undercurrent of reserved strer.gth.
Mis3 Adams has quiet tastes, delighting in her home, her books, and
her flowers. Her soft, sympathetic -voice, her genius and her sterling charac
ter that expresses itself In all her work, have been the basis of her success

Then she let out a screech of Joy, for
suddenly the panting chug of a heavy
car smote the distance. Her troubles
were at an end! Never an autoist so
mean as to refuse aid to a stranded
brother or sister.
The approaching rumble bespoke the
large car of her hopes, and she hastily
assumed, her mer-t attractive manner

many miles she was from her destina
tlon or her home she had no idea
mattered little whether it was one or
a thousand,, she was Rrchored to stay
as far as the machine was concerned.
She bad set out with more haste
than discretion and had left undone
tbiug.s that should have been done ln
preparation for so long a run; also she
had neglected to take along other
things that should have been taken in
case of the emergency which was sure
to present itself.
Emergency without recourse is never
pleasant. Janet felt it almost tragic.
It portended the failure of her under
taking. Intended to impress and sub
due her family and some others. Was
it to end iu this silly little fiasco?
She set her teeth with determination
and went down the road to recon
noiter. Nothing in sight either way.
She climbed a large rock pile at the
roadside and gazed long and intently
iu the direction of her destination, as
if to materialize in the near distance
the factory village whence she had
meant to speed away on the prosaic
but reliable railway.
She finally persuaded herself that
she perceived spires and "chimneys
upon the blank horizon aud with more
determination returned to the car,
gathered up her suit ense, lunch box,
raincoat and umbrella and set out to
finish the Journey with her small, fash
ionably shod feet.
Panting under her load, Bhe eventu
ally reached the rock pile, rested her
remonstrating, aching little person a
half hour and meekly, with great dis
gust, plodded back to the runabout as
to a city of refuge.
- When she packed so large a part of
her personal belongings she had not
considered the possibility of trans
porting it by main strength, like a hod
carrier. She could abandon the treacherous
car, but not her plumage. One cannot
make a creditable entrance into a
strange country .without suitable
adornment, and she felt that her fu
ture largely depended upon the im
pression her unknown relatives receiv
ed of her at meeting.
Therefore she resigned herself to
await the passing of a good Samari
tan, hoping devoutly he would be pos
sessed of a large touring car and tow
her Into port.
This was entirely a matter of
chance, though, with the probabilities
against it, as she had purposely chosen
an unfrequented way to avoid the
auto party she had deserted.
' She kicked her heels and reflected
upon her position with anger and self
pity. Bob would go, of course, ln his
bl? new machine, and equally, of
course,, be. vtoijldjro for her-HUe could
continually flinging them at each other
It ! in the most barefaced manner.
Her fattier had come home beaming
the night before and informed her that
Bob would Ik? on hand, as he had
taken pains to explain that she (Janet)
was expecting him, as usual, the re
fusal being a mere bit of feminine
ocjuotry. ind her mother had laugh
ingly added that she bad met the
young fellow that afternoon looking
very despos:dej;t and had cheered him
up by re-narking that Janet never
meant )nl' she saidnr.d would be dis-appclr-.tcd
if he failed to come for her.
And, to crown all. Bob's mother had
ru;i in and assured her as if she de
mancVd . rxi-h assurance that Bob
would be around early, ns she had re
minded bhn that Janet expected him
to ta!:c her, as usual.
"As ur-nal!' " Jane quoted vindic
tively. "The peer fellow couldn't get
ild of ine If he tried, as I am sure be
has sometimes!" She was not at all
sure of this. "They'd push us to the
very altar without a word from either

So he bad tried to foist her upon an

stolen away early. "I am not In the
