New fields for the application of the motion picture to education are being opened so rapidly that it is not surprising that the possibilities of this new develop ment should seem almost limitless.- Every subject, in fact, is being reconsidered with special reference to its possibilities for exploitation in this form; literature is not willing to allow that it is behind science, and perhaps philosophy will soon emulate J geography. There is no danger that the j educational value of the "movies" will be j neglected: the present peril seems to be i rather in a too indiscriminate application ! of a highly valuable instrument. It is j time, in short, to fit this new invention into the general scheme of education, and thinking up uses to which it might be put is only a first step. When it has been shown that a thing can be done, it still remains to show that it is desirable to do it, and to determine this several consid erations must be kept in sight. It is not enough, for example, to show that a given subject can be made much pleasanter and easier by putting instruc tion into cinematographic form, for the pleasantest and easiest kind or" instruc tion is not always the best. Nor is it suffi cient to show that the pupil can see and j comprehend at a glance in the pictures what he could only make out with long and painful effort in any other way. This is to confuse the acquisition of a particu lar idea or bit of knowledge with mental training. That the motion pictures can be made to give mental training of a val uable sort may readily be granted. A skilled teacher would find them very valu able indeed not only for training the fac ulty for observation but in getting the pupil to reflect ujpon what he has seen I and to endeavor to interpret the pictures. ' This danger is that in the fascination of the passing show this opportunity for discipline and mental stimulus may be passed by. Sometimes Lunkheadedness. From the Boston Transcript.

(Copyright, 1914, by W. Werner.) The purple and gold and crimson of autumn foliage is cheerful enough when the sun glitters on it. But when the first gray rains of October turn it into limp, wet ugliness cheerful ness is as far removed from the land scape as from a muddy popcorn bail. Leona Graham kicked petulantly at the soaked masses of fallen leaves as she cut through the patch of scrub wood that lay between the north end of the small town and the shabby lit tle house that was home to her, her five brothe.rs ranging in age from seven to twenty-one. and her shiftless, clever, hopeful, hopelessly Impractical old father. it depended on the weather and Leona's humor which ad jectives she thought of. Her mother had been dead six years. Leona was eighteen and discouraged. It had been hard and nerve-racking to cook and wash and sew for the bovs. .She disconsolately wishfd that some of thorn at least had been girls. Then she rould have managed to get along or to get away into the world. She might have gone to high school longer than four months. Those four months nad been in Leona's fifteenth year, and she had quit tempestuously. High school, it seemed. had been more' a matter of clothes, primping, snubs., snobs and chic coiffures than of the lessons she had foolishly supposed. Today as she came out of th<? cor ner grocery store, her arms loaded, a group of high-school girls stood on the corner laughing with a crowd of joung fellows. None of them spoke, altnough she had spent the four months in the name classrooms. She passed them silently. r*rcsently one of the girls hurried past her and met a tall, well dressed young fellow. In her impetuous rush she knocked a parcel from l.eona's hold. The apol ogy that she called back was so very careless as to be no apology at all. "Mr. Vanny." the girl called, gayly, to the tall young fellow who had smil ingly halted at sight of her. "I've coaxed Edith to make a fourth at our table tonight. And if you don't take a fair share of the prizes " They strolled away, chatting and laughing. Mr. Vannv raised his hat to I^eona and she bowed stiffly. Th<n she took a tighter hold upon her par cels. turned to the short cut through the scrub wood and kicked petulantly at the sodden leaves. It was, of course, nothing to her that Jim Vanny. a new arrival in the town, should be walking with Clara Jennings, from whose father's store Leona was carry ing those groceries. Clara had sat opposite Leona at high school, but she never showed any sign that she re membered. Young Mr. Vanny, who was in either the advertising or solic iting business?Leona didn't exactly know which?had been out one even ing to the shabby house to see her father. They had talked about pat ents and weird plumbing devices and freak washing machines?all the im practicable things that her imprac tical father wasted his days dream ing over. Bertram, the oldest of the boys, had lounged in sullenly about y o'clock. Leona put away her basket of mending to get his supper and try to coax him into a good humor. Ber tram tried hard to work. He was an amateur plumber, locksmith and er rand chap in general to the town. Leona, coaxing, learned that he had been unable to repair a broken pipe for an old lady in the time laid down by her. So she had paid him only half what she had promised. "Doggone her!" he muttered. "Dog gone everything?doggone rnysei Leona had looked from the small , AMUSEMENTS.

"WAS NOTHING TO J HER. counted on that pxtra dollar for a pair of shoes he might, not have been alto gether philosophically sensible. Not that Leon a used these words. That had been in August, when pur ' pie asters and yellow golden-rod flanked the roadway. Now it was Oc tober and the golden-rod had dribbled its yellowness to the gray ground. Leona wished there was never any i rain, tfiat there was no winter on the I way, that her father was different.. Not that she wanted him different, only she could imagine life being different, if he were a smart grocer, for instance. She wished that the four months had been four years: that the sole of her right shoe was not wearing out; that she could go to card parties and that Bert could get steady work. Bert was good about giving her a share of all the : money he could pick up. She wished } Ralph, the seven-year-old, had a new ; overcoat and didn't have that cough: j that she had a red hat like Clara and | the prospect of getting a prize; she | wished?oh. well, what was the use of - wishing? One might as well kick dead. ; wet leaves. There was as much profit I in the one as the other. Leona wished drearily that she wasn't Leona Graham at all. She quickened her steps as she turned into the lane leading to her home. Bert was sitting in the home mad*- wicker rocker on the porch. She detected dejection in the droop of his shabby shoulders. Leona felt sorrier for J.ert than she did for herself or the other boys. He, too, found life a I perplexity and a burden. j "I got some wienerwursts for sup ; per." she called, gayly. Those deli j cacies were Bert's favorite in the meat I line. It was a gloomy mood that frank - - AMUSEMENTS. I. ~ ~~ furters couldn't enliven. He looked up at her curiously. remarking. careless'>'. "ijave you?" And then ho resumed his meditation. She went into the kitchen. It had been as clean as old floor and walls could be when she left. Now it was as untidy and upset as a bov aged seven who liked to whittle and a boy aged eleven who liked to carve could make it. Leona sighed, opened her i mouth to scold, and then sighed and forbore. Boys were boys. She would have been cross oftener. but she always remembered that if her mother hrtd lived they might have been different, and she was pretty sure that her mother would have overlooked much that they did. So she bustled around, setting the table and frying potatoes, talking as cheerfully as she could, out side the skies had tiling down another gray shower that splashed drearily against the small square windows and dripped down the withered vines that the wind whipped at the side of the porch. Leona's cheerful talK stopped as it always, did when she remembered how coldly the rain must seep into the grave across the fields where h?>r mother lay quietly. It was impossible to realize that no rain could sadden her. Bert rose, emptied his pipe and came Inside. "Nasty evening," lie observed, absently. Her father folded an old pamphlet that he was reading and held his hands over the cook stove to warm | them. "A miserable night," he said, carelessly. Weather didn't bother him much. Leona frowned a little. Why j couldn't they keep still? She had a I panicky notion that in another mo ment she would cry. She was tired or I else she had got her feet wet when I she cut through the woods and was j taking cold. She felt miserable. She wondered what dress Clara would | wear to the card party that evening. One Sunday evening Clara had passed the shabby house while out walking. She had worn a pale blue crepe. Leona sometimes al'owed herself to dream of a pale blue crepe. Both she and Clara had pale yellow hair. Leona wondered how it would feel to have AMUSEMENTS.

Then she noticed in' surprise that Bert was tidying- the sitting room; picking up shavings, whittiings, papers and a clutter of pine cones that the younger boys had carried in for rainy day recreation. She looked wonderingly at him. "Van ny is coming after supper." he ex plained as he met her glance. "Mr. Vanny! Oh. l wish he wouldn't!" Then she bit her lips. "Why did she say that? Bert, however, was not observant. He answered, unconcernedly, "Why. don't you like him?" And, without waiting for her reply, went on: "You'd better learn, then, 'cause he'll b?' out here a-plenty. He and 1 are going into business together. I'm to do the work and he will drum up the work. I don't know why .you don't like him. he thinks you are all ritrht.'' "In business. Bert?" Leona's cheeks were red. Her eyes snapped. "Why? then " "Why. then," gruffly, "you can get some decent clothes. Maybe you think I'm a fool, but I ain't. And I've seen more'n you think.

Although the ghost is no longer the main feature and attraction of stage representation, as it was fifty or sixty years ago, it is still an important char acter, said the manager of a theater the other day. In very small theaters, where stage mechanics are conspicuous by their absence, ghosts are often as solid and unrealistic as they were in the days of John Kemble and Mrs. Jor dan. and it is not unusual for the ghost of Hamlet's father to he attired in a suit of real armor. One such "apparition'"- tripped tip while coming on to the stage, and, falling down with a very metallic thud, rolled slowly to AMUSEMENTS. I ward the footlights, causing: a pitite to I shriek out. "Old iron!" j The spooks that haunt the T.ond??n stages today are fairly "realistic." and when Sir Herbert Tree produced "Mae I heth" at His Majesty's Theater the I other year h? gave his audience ghosts i which were really vaporous and un earthly. gliding, transparent, myste rious. Macbeth wilted in terror at the appearance of Bawiuo's spook, and every one decrared that the entrance and general "get-up" of this member of the spirit world was the most in genious and impressive ever seen at a ! theater. I think it was Charles Kean who first resorted to illusion to make a stage ghost a little transparent. When he produced "Macbeth" at the old I'rin cess Theater he manufactured a con | trivance which allowed l.anquo's ghost to appear through a transparent col I umn. Later on. when Mrs. Ann Radcliffe s "Romance of the Forest" was staged ."it Covent Garden Theater, those responsible for its production arranged that the spook in the piece should be seen by the audience through a gauxe ?>f bluish-gray color, so that the too-corporeal effect ? a live actor might be removed. I'oll* t, the clown, "celebrated for his eating <>: carrots in the pantomimes." was th ? shade, and he wore a close-fitting sui; of gray material, sewn together in the form of armor, and in this he floated at ross the stage like a shadow behind a sheet of gauze, much to the delight of the spec tators. When the old playhouse In Drury Lane opened, in 1794, with a perform ance of "Macbeth," Banquo's ghost was omitted. Although Mr. Kemble's acting was fine enough to make the audience almost believe that they really did see the ghost, the people were not satisfied until the system tbev hail been used to was readopted. and Banquo's shade allowed to trot bodily across the boards. In those days theatergoers would have a specter, notwithstanding that the specter was a "super," in a white sheet with a streak of red paint on his brew, who thrust himself through a trapdoor or rose from behind a cardboard tomb when a blow was struck upon a tin can and a spoonful of blue fire ignited in the wings. Reflecting mirrors and the cinemato graph are coming in general use at the theaters, and with them it has been found possible to manufacture ghosts capable of striking terror into the hearts of all followers of the occult.
