The Berry triplets bobbed up on
the New York stage when the new
Montgomery and Stone company was
being organized. At the first rehear

were minus on stage experience, but
they had a JimPatten corner on good,
looks and curls and "Aggers.'

They began passing up the other
chorus beauties for a Berry, and
there never being more than three in
a set of triplets you may well
imagine the scramble for a Berry.
Of course, always there is a whole
sidewalkful of handy supper buyers
ready to do the "picking."
But take a Blant at the picture of
these Berrys. If you had to pick the
prettiest Berry of .the set, which
would it be? - And if you had to do
your picking in competition with a

Motion-picture kiddles are the hap
piest and brightest little pieces of
humanity one could ever wish to see.
Nor have they lost the charm of
childishness for as soon as thgiy cease
to be children, they cease to 'be use
ful. The child movie star is petted and
made mucih of, but kept sharply to
the realisation that he has his own
place and work for their elders and
employers mtfst enter into a conspir

spoiled. Naturalness in the movies
means "success," nd children are
above all others most likely to be
without mannerism and affectation.
There are few film plays in which
it is not found an advantage to cast
a child for some, minor part The
child's appeal to the heart of the pub
lic is swift and many plays have met
success instead of failure because of
a child's acting.
Children find good work, pleasant
environment and short hours fn the
picture-producing places of America

ings for their families in the busi
ness. They earn at least $5 a day and
quite a few receive a $10 gold piece
for every day's work.
' The children have ample opportun
ity to go to school and plenty of leis
ure for play and exercise so it is no
wonder the moving picture makers
are able to get a plentiful supply of
youthful talent. "
The three children pictured above
are wonderful examples of child
beauty in the movies. Baby Wade is
probably the most brilliant and tal
ented child actress in the business
and has captured the hearts of mil
lions: of- people who have seen her on
the screen. You surely have seen.
