I hope she didn't fill an early grave. Once I got it in a baby bottle-yes. I mean one of those with the long-distance attachment. I sent out for it-they seem to think it was for an infant. "And, of course, this milk business runs on schedule time-once an hour. Why, I took my bottle to the theater with me, the day I went to see Billie Burke in 'The Mind-the-Paint-Girl' in New York, and drank it out of one of the little sanitary cups the boys pass around. "Some one asked me what I wanted for Christnmas, and I said a cow." "But don't you ever intend *to eat any motre?" queried the fellow mem ber of Miss Lee's company, who has been fairly mystified at all she had heard. "I don't think so," ,was the reply. "Then may I," resumed the other, "May I apply for position as your cook?" and the conversation was ended as the state m:anager announced "sec ond act."

RESUMES CAREER Miss Florenc(e Roc'kiwell, the new leadiling woman wilth Robert H. Man tel', has folund iagain an opportunity to r'(es1Umll hl'r Icareer as a classic a'c tress, for wivhitch she 'was severely trained when a mere child. Miss Rockwell in hir girlhood days re ceived so g,,o.I an education in Shakespearean roles In various com panies that Richard Mansfield chose 'her, though then scarcely out of her te'ens, as his leadiling woman, and she played leads with him the last year "he appeared in Shakespearean FLORENCE ROCKWELL dramas. After his revival of "Peter Gynt," Mr. Mansfield contemplated a return to the classic the next season, and was negotiating with Miss Rocl well to resume her place as his lead ing woman when death cut short his plans and her ambitions.

Are you troubled with the vague, haunting fear that perhaps he has learned to play poker and is wasting his time and his substance in the back room of a cheap saloon? Or that he has been lured away by the red lights?? You should worry! Your darling boy has not learned to p!ay poker. He is spending his evenings at the "movies," admiring those pretty girls in the p'cture, or others just like them, and wishing that he might form a more intimate acquaintance. The girls shown in the picture are all members of the same film conm pany, the Selig of Chicago. But the Selig people haven't a monopoly on beauty by any means. Perhaps there are a dozen other moving pic ture companies whose heroines are just as charming. So if your boy doesn't get home until real late at night you may take it for granted that he is making a round of the pic ture shows. The girls shown in the picture are "leading ladies" in their company. They have been the heroines in a vell plunged into modern roles for want of an opportunity to continue in the classics. Her career as a mod ernist. was interrupted by two en gagements in brief "all-star" revi vals of Shapespearean plays, but dur ing most of the time since 'Mans field's death she has had 'to content herself with roles of latter day in vention, in which, 'however much her tastes have inclined to the classics ape has won fame. Notable creations %. ý. *% Ub~ thousand dramatic episodes, and a million admirers in this and other lands have followed them in their romantic course. They are actresses of rare ability as well as beauty,; and you really can't blame your boy for admiring them. But there are other things besides pretty girls to admire at the "movies." of hers were the ,heroines in "The Round UIp" and The Nigger." Miss Rockwell gladly availed h:erself last summer of Mr. Mantell's offer to re turn to Shakespearean roles, and critics have noted in her the old fire of the Mansfield days, coupled with the ripened art that comes from ex perience. The attractions now current in New York at Shubert playhouses are "The There. are plenty of splendid plays that haven't a pretty girl in them. And then there are travel pictures and pic tures of current events. Why should your boy, who, after all, 'is a reasonably intelligent creature, waste his time and money in a saloon when he can get amusement like this for almost nothing?
