the same name, is one of the most
prolific and successful writers of
iKioks and plays in the country, and

iv stcauv, up-inii work. At nrst a
civil engineer, then a practical miner
and then a assavcr. He spent the
earlier portion of his life in the west
among rugged men of marked char
acter, strong impressions were
made on Gunter's mind until he "felt
it in him" to write a plav. The play.
of course, was crude, and a conse
quent failure; but others followed:
until one that hapjened to suit Rich
ard Mansheld, "Prince Karl, made
the reputation of author and actor
alike. It was Mansfield's first succes.
It was Gunter's first as well. Soon
after Mr. Guntcr tried his hand at
writing a novel. Next came his "Mr.
Potter of Texas." It was taken up
more quicklv. and its author's name
was now established, and a second
sensational success was scored. Both
books were dramatized bv Gunter
with a success that is well known.
From a literary- standard. "Mr. Pot

cism, hut it is full of char
acter, dash, action, emphatic inci
dents and life, and fully deserves the
popular success it has enjoyed the
past two years since its original pro
