matronly voice called out, "Oh,

Tall as a Grecian goddess, with
limbs muirvollously long and as nn
vellously proportioned, and a smamll
head poised upon a slender nieck,
dark grey eys--"Irish eyes"-and
dark brown hair, a complexion as
clear as alabaster, and a small, ripe,
red mouth, Mary Anderson has such
delicate features that slheappuars even
more lovelyiat a close in spection than

MISS ANDERsON'S HISTORY.
"My age ?" said Mary Anderson,
.mdinugly. 'I am just nineteen, and,
although all the critics speak about
my Kentucky style and height, I
was born in California. I never

tinned, in response to an exclamna
tion of surpriso, "because tihe Cali

since, and so have they. "Seo !"
she cried, running over the letters

Miss Ander~son, after a moment's

"You know the rest of the story,"
resumed Miss Anderson when she
had recovered her gravity, "of my!

and I hate ionev. Ilamiilton (thats
Dr. Griffin) attends to all that.

gone on. But I turned up1) the

Mary Anderson presented such a
superb spectacle as she ldid when,
fliiging aloft her splendid arm, she
ended her anecdoto with a voico
full of suppressed passion and

EXPERIENCES IN NEW YORK.
"You see I had only been on the
stage three years," said Miss An
derson, "when Mr. Fiske oll'ered mec

now I fully appreciate all that was
done for me, and I am as grateful
for it--well, lBrother Fiske knows
all about that. What I was going
to say is that in Nowv York, for the
first time, some critics began to
find fault with me, and it opoened
my eyes to the real art of my pro0
fession. People told me that the
critics only criticised me because it
was their duty to find fault and
pick flawvs; but I knowv better. MyI
sense told me that they woero very
often right and I was very of teln

had been acting becauso-I liked to
act, because something ini 1me made

much about acting as an ari't, a
profession, a life study. I could
p~lay a part and guy all the time.
(You know what 'guy' is ?) But I
can't do that any more. You news..
paper people gave me a new idea;
I went to Europe withl it; I mixed
over there with real artListics, real

nearly a year I have had one word

head, haunting me day and night,
