NEW HAVEN MORNING JOURNAL AND COURIER. SATURDAY, AUGUST 17, 1907. PREPARATION ERA , INTHE THEATERS Story of the Failure of the Chicago Art Under taking. MANAGERS AT WORK. Gossip of the Green Room From All Along the Line. The fact that a group of million aires, headed by John Jacob Astor, William K. Vanderbilt, George Gould and others are now building in New York a theater to be conducted on lines similar to the state-endowed playhouses of Europe, renders of pe culiar Interest an article by Victor Mapes entitled "An Art Theater in Operation," published in the Theater Magazine for August. Mr. Mapes was director of the short-lived New Thea ter of Chicago, and he gives the rea sons for the failure of that enterprise. He says: The New Theater of Chicago, began Its career for the betterment of the drama last October, and closed Its doors at the end of February after a season of twenty weeks.- In a general way the method of its organization and the Ideas for which it stood were . similar to those adopted by nearly all the movements in this country or abroad for the "elevation of the stage'.' so-called. The New Theater exper ment was undertaken with all sincer ity and earnestness; It had the enthu siastic backing of a large number of prominent people in Chicago, and the management of its affairs was entrust ed to men of experience in the practi cal stage world. Fifteen plays were produced in all, ten long ones and five short ones, and these plays cov ered such a wide range and were so representative in various ways that the reception accorded them may be taken as an indication of the attitude to be expected of our theatergoing public toward the productions at any "subscription playhouse" or similar Institution wherever the experiment may next he tried. The New Theater stood for 1. The elimination of the "star" system. There was to be no "star" In the cast and no "featured" players. The com pany was to be formed xi as capable actors as could be procured, who were all to be on a basis of equality and ready to accept any part that might be assigned them. 2. There were to be no "long runs." Whatever the suc cess of any play the number of its performances was to be strictly limit ed, so that new productions might fol low one another at stated intervals. 3. As to the selection of plays the guld- rinclple was summed up suc cinctly In the words "plays worth while." No one cult or school was to dominate. The general effort would be to offer as wide a variety as possi ble of plays, new or old, that should interest intelligent people, without making them feel that they were wasting their time. 4. No pretentions were to be made in the way of elab orate scenery, costumes or accessories, the aim being merely to give each play an adequate, If modest, presentation as nearly correct as possible. What was the result? The total receipts at the box office of the theater from the sale of seats for "Elga" during its entire two weeks' run was $376. Each night during the run of "Elga" a large proportion of the thea ter's subsbrtbers Aid. not use the tickets which were in their possession and paid for. Nor did they give them away. The tickets were simply not used and the seats stayed empty. "The Great Galeoto," the next play in order of the trustees' prefer ence, in its two weeks' run played to a total of $851, exclusive of the sub scription seats. The high comedy from the French, "The Son-in-Law," played to about five times the receipts of "Elga." The English farcical comedy, "Engaged," played to still larger recipts, and the despised American play, "The Spoil ers," completely outclassed all the Others in the way of receipts. Includ ing subscriptions, its total went to between five and six thousand dollars. A point worthy of note in this con nection, moreover, is that on many nights during the run of "The Spoil ers" every subscription ticket was usedVnot one of the seats being left vacant The event proved, therefore, that the theatergoing public voted its pre ference, silently but none the less po sitively and eloquently, in exactly the reverse order of the leading trustees throughout the whole list. What the trustees admired most the public would not come to see, and what the trustees despised the theatergoers flocked to applaud. The running expenses of the New Theatre, all things included, averaged about $3,000 a week. This was divid ed up approximately as follows: Theater rent, Including lights, house force, etc., $11,000; salaries of com pany, etc., $1,500; advertising, $200; production expenses (average per week) $200; extras, $100; total, $3, 000.

This was an upper front too that had once been filled with gold, but fresh decay having set in around that filling It had become necessary to fill the tooth again. This time, the dentist said, he thought he woujd fill it with porcelain. All the processes of making a porce lain Inlay are interesting. Having drill ed the cavity in the tooth to its re quired depth and shape, the dentist next proceeds to make a matrix or mould of it in gold foil, which he is enabled to do without breaking this delicate material by the use of. a bit of sponge between it and the crowding tool. So he crowds the gold foil down arcund within it everywhere to fit in to the cavity perfectly, and getting the depth all around the edge of the mould so exactly that the Inlay to be made in it, when set into place, will not on ly fit perfectly in the cavity, but fit Into It with its edges flush all around with the surrounding surface of the tooth. The mould thus made of the cavity In the tooth may look like the tiniest of tiny gold cups, or it may have some Irregular shape, according to the shape of the cavity, but whatever its shape, this mould of gold foil Is so slight and tfcln that a touch would crush It, and it seems indeed as if a breath would blow it away, as probably it would, and you may wonder how a solid piece of porcelain can ever be formed in a mould so frail and delicate; but It is all really very simple, as you will see. Now the dentist takes a small metal lic holder about the' size and shape of a very small clam shell, which ho fills with powdered asbestos mixed with water, and on top of this yield ing material, handling it gently with a pair of pliers, he sets the delicate little gold mould, with its closed end down, resting so on the surface of the moistened powdered asbestos. This holder has a Hp on one side of its edge, by which it can be lifted with a pair of pliers made for the purpose and serving thus as a handle for it. Lifting the little saucer now by this handle this operator rubs on the han dle very gently, as one might draw a fiddle bow very gently back and forth on the strings of a fiddle; a lead pen cil might do for this, but he Is likely to use some professional tool with a chased or engraved handle, whose Ir regularities will heighten the effect; and rubbing gently with this on the handle of the holder he communicates to it and to Its contents and to the little gold mould on top continuous, gentle vibrations which, slight as they ari, still cause the mould gradually to settle and embed itself in the semi fluid mass In the holder, and this with out in the slightest changing its shape. These1 vibrations are continued till the mould has settled to the required depth, and then the water is evapor ated from the asbestos, and there you have the little gold mould firmly im bedded in practically solid material anil ready for use. The .inlay will be made in the mould from a porcelain powder. Porcelain powders for dental use are made by the manufacturers of dental supplies In endless variety of shades, so that lit Is easily possible to get a powder whose finished product will match any tooth. Then dentist has a great assort ment Of teeth made from porcelain powders, these all named or numbered, and he matches up your tooth with one of these and uses for the Inlay the powder of the corresponding number. With the little gold mould all ready the operator .now mixes a sufficient quantity of the porcelain powder with alcohol to give him the material In a plastic form, while at the same time the alcohol will evaporate quickly. He wets also the asbestos In the mould holder, to keep that from absorbing the alcohol in the porcelain powder. And now with his porcelain In work able form he fills the mould with it, to make there the shape that is to be set into the tooth, and then he pro ceeds to fashion In the pdnstlc mater ial its outward part. This may be simply a slightly rounded surface, for an inlay that is to go into the flatter part of a tooth, or the Inlay may in clude an edge or corner of a tooth, or both; but whatever the outward part may be the operator so moulds and fashions it that it will continue and complete naturally the contour of the tooth Into which the Inlay Is to be set. With the modelling thus finished the inlay is ready for the final process, and now, with the holder, mould and all, it Is put Into a tiny electric oven, out of which after a suitable time it Is taken, baked Into a solid ' bit of porcelain, the Inlay completed. It Is set In place with cement; and so perfectly is porcelain inlaying now done, that except upon the closest in srec'lion it may be Impossible to tell In 'an inlaid tooth where the natural tooth ends and where. the inlay begins; a nice operation In modern dentistry. New York Sun. American Manufactures Abroad. It Is interesting to note that the manufactured goods exported from the United States during the last year exceeded three quarters of a billion dollars in value. This Is an enormous advance over the figures of even a de cade ago. - Sales of American agricultural pro ducts abroad are important as a means of maintaining national pros perity. But shipments of grain and meat are less valuable as factors . in this respect than shipments of goods made in American mills and factories. In the latter case they represent large sums paid in wages, which in turn go to siivmort multitudes of households In comfort, according to the American stnntlnrd of living. Not long ago it was the fashion to assume that the manufacturing indus tries of the United States must be practically restricted in their output to the creation of merchandise for home consumption. The fallacy of that doctrine is becoming more appar ent with each succeeding year. This republic has not only entered the list of those nations which annually send f irth great volumes of manufactured goods; it has assumed a prominent place among them. And there Is abundant basis for the belief that if rational policies are pursued,' the progress already made in this direction is hardly more than the merest beginning. Philadelphia Bulletin. INDICATE FALL STYLES MIDSUMMER COSTUMES Descriptions of Some of the Choicest Creations of the Year. Midsummer costumes always show the daintiest, most atractive designs of the whole year, and this season Is no exception. At the beach and moun tain resorts, and even right here in the city, which is unusually well filled with visitors taking advantage of the cool weaklier, beautiful creations of linens, thin silks, mulls,' moussellnes, and batistes are in evidence. But the most Interesting point about them is that they show indications of the com ing fall styles. In the linen suits which are, some how, smarter than they ever have been or is it that 'the woman of 1907 wears her clothes with a more distinguished air? we have the most delightful ex amples of semi-tailored effects, and semi-tallortng H going to be the pre dominant feature of the modes of the too fast approaching season. The lat est suits, that Is, those which are be ing turned out at the last moment, are I two-thirds length, semi-fitted back, with just the merest suggestion of a j raised waist line It is no longer term- ed "Empire" and while its lines are J all very long and severe, there are fascinating fancy, touches added every- ' where braids put on In either simple ornate designs, applique figures, strap- pings, velvet in bindings, pipings, and it settings, and buttons. It will be "who -haa not' buttons" this year" this year. I The question over which everyone js cogitating is "are the Japanese effects to be retained? and the answer is", "Yes," in coatj and very dressy cos tumes. But, generally speaking all of the Oriental features which have dom inated us so completely the past sea sen, will be greatly modified and so merged into other designs as to be scarcely recdgnlblo as in a class by themselyes. The mandarin sleeve and the kimono will be preserved, the for mer as an undersleeve and the latter more as a sleeve cap for outer wraps, while the kimono effect Is furth'er sug gested in the Increased use of the stole effects, of which many variations will be seen. Even with the long sleeve end by the time we are well into the fall season a short sleevd coat will ap pear wholly out of date the upper part I.; frequently draped over the shoulder, plainly suggesting the kimono sleeve; and another equally marked Inference nay be gleaned from the full shoulder arm, tapering' toward the wrist. One of the recent importations was a mouse-colored linen of real Irish weave. The skirt was fashioned with a seam down the center of a wide box plait and te rest of the material In box plaits of half the width, meeting epch other around the skirt to the back which had the wlde-seamed plait like the front, the opening being .under neath. The only trimming was a single row of narrow linen braid, ending in a conventional figure of the box plait. The coat was given a box front, which was finished with a shaped collar of sitched linen ,from which shoulder tabs were cut in one with the sleeves, and also from which branched long stole ends, attached and used as outside facing for the front edges. At the underarm seams a box plait was let in, and the fronts and backs, nicely mar.hlne-stitched, overlapped them, decorated with three pearl but tons caught through loops of braid. Tho sleeves show real novelty. Their general outline is a small leg-o'-mut- ton but, while the top of the sleeve is straight, it Is caught In three deep tucks which graduate abruptly to mere points at the sides, which gives an ef fect of gathers underneath. From the elbow, or, perhaps, Just below it, the sleeve is quite close-fitting. The shap ed piece around the neck is decorated with groups of buttons and loops, and three others finish the front. The fact that velvet will be an important fac tor this fall si demonstrated in Its use already in combination with summer fabrics, especially in tailored gar ments, and tho strange part of it all is that the combination does not strike one as Incongruous. A Newport woman, who has the nrme of being always correctly dress ed, has a stunning linen suit which she sometimes wears for traveling. The skirt is rather above angle length, is slde-plalted with a very narrow front panel, and boasts no decoration whatever except two rows of machine stitching. Topping it is a four-button cutaway, bound all around with the narrowest possible piping of brown vel vet, the suit color being of the nat ural linen shade. The neck 1s cut to a deep point and finished with a narrow shawl collar of velvet, and the side seams are outlined with velvet, the line continuing down the front and around the bottom three Inches above the low er edge. The sleeves are Tather full at. the armsides, the fullness being brought into plaits, but they taper abruptly and form the close-fitting waist of the other model. It is not, however, alone the tailored costumes that hint to us of fall in novations. Some of the airiest crea tions are most plainly indicative, al though, in the matter of sleeves, they are no criterion,, as they one and all remain comfortably short that Is to say, In this country. Parisian women have already returned to the long va riety. That the sleeveless waist Is to bd one of the popularities is shown in many of the fetching lawn and linen ccstumes. In all of these costumes the plainest suggestion Is the tendency toward more simplicity, and fashion Is very wary in luring us on In this direction, because she intends we shall pay more attention to fabrics this coming fall, and velvets, rich cloths, and even p!ushe3 will be predominant, with trimmings Telegated to secondary posi tion. Even Cow frills and furbelows are In their zenith on flimsy warm weather frocks; they are eo crossed and bound with bands of lace or em broidery or even with a tailored bands of the gown material as to have a cer tain new appearance of simplicity that t the uninlnitlated Is as baffling as it is 'ascinating. It may be a little far fetched, but it almost seems as though the very laces themselves were being designed to accentuate this tendency foi nearly all of them show a combin ation of light filmy design, balanced with a heavier, and we have exquisite examples of Irish and 'Mechlin or Ven Ise, filet with Irish, Venise with gui pure, and so on. While we are touching upon laces there is to be a strong return to metallic designs, us ually in combination. Another Indica tion of advanced simplicity Is shown in the neckwear. Instead of the fanci ful, often garish jabots and cascaded effects, which, if not adopted among exclusive women, have at least been dangled before our eyes In the shops for the past seasons, there are these same ideas modified into trig, smart little accessories, In which we are all sure to find delight in wearing. The long Marie Antoinette ruffle has been turned into a shaped band, embroider ed down the center and bordered at either side with the same narrow plaiting but bound at either side with a very tiny band of lace or braid. This is attached to the stock underneath a straight bow of silk or ribbon. Another suggestion that we must deplore Is the dropping of the skirt to ankle length. Practically, the very short skirt was adopted only by the New York girl. Outside the city and its environments the style did not gain much ground. Still, it was not only extremely comfortable to know that there was no chance of one's skirt trailing the dust, but It was tre mendously youthful and becoming to those whose figures permitted of this style. However, Parisians persist in going in. for style regardless of com fort, and Americans have not yet ar rived at the point whijre they dare be too self-assertive, although from many indications they seem to be "arriving." For all costumes of anything like formal occasions the skirts of the coming season will be long and often en train. So far nothing has been found quite to take the place of )tho plaited skirt, bvtt quite as many circu lar designs are noticed, and the two and three-piece circular will be a great favorite for nearly all kinds of materials. This, too, is shown in the gowns of the present. Even filmy lawns and batistes without number are fashioned on circular lines, but as they are always made to sweep tho floor, the tendency toward sagging, which is the chief impediment to the beauty of all circular skirts, is obvi ated. A very charming frock of white batiste, checked off in hairline satin stripes and dotted with small pule blue figures, was constructed on cir cular lines with tho fronts cut on the bias and a seam down the center. In stead of being plaited at the back, it was gathered, ' thus showing another touch of seml-tallorlng. This skirt was quite plain, turned up in a four- inch hem at Wp b6ttom, with, just over the front seam, three tiny but terfly bows In blue velvet ribbon. The bodice showed the same treatment, and was worn with a gnlmpo of em broidered batiste. It is all very well to be cool and comfortably gowned under August suns when one has the whole category of colors and materials from which to select, but to the woman In. mourn ing it is quite, another and n most perplexing matter. The heavy swath lngs of crepe have entirely disappear ed from the corrected fashion list. Indeed, for a time it appeared that all outward semblance of mourning had been eliminated but latterly there Is a return to symbolic raiment. Crepe is used sparingly and judici ously and there are many dull black cloths and silks that may be utilized in place of them. Crepe unostenta tiously used and properly applied is artistic but only the cfiever modiste knows how to bring this about. Flat bands, long straight pieces, which give simple effects, are always in bet ter taste than small inseitings or puf fings, which seem out of place, too evi dently an attempt at decoration. The voilings which make the most accept able gowns may be of the sheerest weave, as thin as the finest lawn. A smart costume recently imported had the skirt close fitting around the hips, a seam down the front, and a three- inch band of crepe arourM the bot tom. The bodice was entirely of crepe, which was of the smooth weave ad had a ilttle pointed vest of the voile toped with! a smalV yoke of the crepe. The three-quarter sleeves were full at the elbow, with the fullness brought into plaits, stitched at the lower portion, and finished with bands of voile. There are very many wash materi als that are not inappropriate for wear in scorching weather, and, al though one recoils somewhat at the combination of crepe and batiste, many of the most exclusive of French creations are showing It, and at least it has the merit of comfort. Usually the crepe appears only as pipings, but an occasional creation shows crepe in more conspicuous decoration. Black bastiste with the dullest possible fin ish, which made up a Newport cos tume for morning wear, had a plain gored skirt with a deep, shaped band around the bottom. The waist was laid in three deep tucks at the should ers, stitched across with a square of fine-ribbed crepe, the edges of which were piped with the batiste, and thus formed epaulets, the batiste being cut out from underneath. Rising from the belt are three pointed tabs of the crepe, each one edged with the batiste oplnted at the ends, and finished with a tiny cloth-covered button. The sleeves were similarly decorated. Another material that has found fa vor for mourning costumes is a Swiss muslin dotted with crepe. It is cool and dainty looking In spite of its sombre aspect, and, having the crepe on its surface, may be effectively trim med with bands of plain material. Lace is generally tabooed, but nets are permissible and offer a wide range of decorative possiblitles In the fingers of a clever dressmaker. Crepe fig ures may be apliqued to them and narrow holds of crepe may be run through tfcuu to form' bands. The long veil is, of course, quite out but the fad for the draped veil In ; colors makes possible many ' Interest ing modes of using It in black as In signia of mourning over the beautiful straws and braids that are used for I hats for this purpose. A very strik ing little hat was noticed recently. The narrow, rolling brim was caught up at me lert side, close to the rath er high crown, with a large rosette of crepe and from this a square veil was draped carelessly, being thrown over the hat and caught once at the oppo site side with a dull jet pin, and again at the side back, from which the two corners hung to the waist.

American cities of the first class have been engaged in a campaign against the smoke nuisance for the past five years, with a result that is little short of marvelous. They have achieved their point to a degree that makes the smokeless city of the near future an assured fact. Smoke Is an unnecessary curse of national prosperi ty. Formerly it was considered a badge of great prosperity to have forests of tall chimneys belching forth clouds of sulphurous smoke. Tho factory which did not thus proclaim its activity was looked upon as a losing investment. Orders were slack and business lagging. A strange revolution has been silently worked through the activity of those engaged in suppressing the smoke nuls- i ance. They have demonstrated their I earnestness in pushing the campaign, and science has come to their aid. ; The steam engineer has recognized the hopelessness of his case and has pro ceeded to devise methods to suppress the smoke without limiting the capaci ty of the plants. The result is that i ! smoke is now considered poor economy. It Indicates imperfect combustion and a waste of fuel which should be avoid ed. The smokeless factory town is the most prosperous community. For decides our factories and manu facturing plants have been pouring up their chimneys in the form of: smoke and unburnt coal dust about 85 per cent, of their fuel. This extravagant consumption of coal told 'heavily on the cost of manufacturing. The soft bituminous coals filled the air' with clouds of sulphurous smoke which ruin ed 'clothes, furniture and valuable stock, and clogged the delicate lungs and nasal and throat passages of all who breathed it. Physicians in recent years are agreed that the weakening effect of breathing an excess of .soot lias been very great in the past, and that the spread of pneumonia and tuberculosis has been partly due to this nuisance. In some cities the smoke fog has been so dense that the average health has been affected through the clouding of the heavens and the con sequent shutting out of the bright sun shine. Many factories engaged in mak ing delicate laces, curtains, linens, silks rand other costly fabrics have been forced to find Isolated locations away from smoke-producing plants. The dls e.greeableness of having smoke and soot distributed In the living-rooms of the heme is so great that in many cities vvludows had to toe, tightly closed dur ing the, greater part of the day. Alto gether the smoke nuisance has cost millions of dollars and produced much iil-health and irritable nerves. But greait as this Indirect loss to property is, the direct loss through the waste of fuel heat carried up the chimney with the belching smoke Is even greater. Engineering economics to-day declare that rthe loss Is useless. It ies simply a problem of burning smoke properly. The efficiency of steam plants has been Increased from 10 to 20 per cent, through the proper burn ing of coal. The number of devices in vented for preventing smoke loss is so great to-day thrtit it is more a problem with manufacturers to make a choice out of many than to find any at all. These devices are chiefly found In Im proved mechanical stokers, which give automatic and uniform action, so' that sudden changes In the draft cannot send up great clouds of smoke; in im proved furnaces with down- drafts of air which carry the distilled gases of the fuel down through the coal when In an incandescent condition, and not up through thd chimney; in Improved air flues, bridge walls, and grate-bars, new kinds of corking-arches, and dead plates where the coal Is warmed and partly coked before being spread over the grate surfate. Smoke-preventing devices are being used by the' large plants voluntarily. The campaign against the smoke nui sance does not aff eat them. From an economical point of view they are do ing away with belching chimneys. They know too well that great clouds of drifting smoke indicate poor economy of peratin thrugh imperfect combus tion. The smokeless stack is an Indica tion of careful firing and perfect com bination.

The Kind Needed, Not by the Horse, But by the Owner. I wonder if any one can give a rea sonable excuse for watering horses as soon as they have finished a meal or just before going out for a drive, says a writer In Suburban Life. In the first place, the oats are washed out of' the stomach into the intestinal can als, where they cannot be digested and must be an active Irritant, and, In tho second, a fjtomach full of water makes a horse dull and loggy. A lit tle at a time and that often is a good rule in watering stock. Did you see that warning signal which nature threw out the other day as you Btopped your horse for a mo ment? As soon as it halted one fore foot was thrown forward- because something was wrong and there was pain. If you hadv examined the animal you might have found some heat about the cbroriet , or, Bome sensitiveness along the muscles of the pastern or about the ankle.. Your friend says "call a veterinary and have him nerv ed." ' A better way is to stop using for a few days, remove the shoes, and let the horse stand on peat moss u an earth floor is not to be had. Of course the grain ration must be great ly reduced and bran mashes suosti tuted. Then' see If the heels have been cut so low as to strain the muscles of the leg, or the toes left long to insure more stride, or the foot is not proper. lv balanced. "No foot no horse," is an old adace. Why not take away those cribs and let vour horse feed from the floor? It will require more time for It to consume a meal, but that is surely no objection and the animals digestion will be improved. How about that horBe whfch is so ravenous for grain? Did you ever try one of those cribs with cups to prevent bolting of the grain, or nave vou experimented by scattering the oats along one side of the stall floor so they must be eaten siowiy t Any device which necessitates twice the time usually consumed in putting away a ration of grain will materially aid the appearance, service ana con dition of a horse. Do you stay with your horse while he Is being shod? How then do you know that he is being kindly treated? I saw a good smith strike a horse over the head the other day with his rasp and the marks of that blow will re main for weeks. Many valuable animals have been permanently Injured by such blows given under Impulse, the result of vexatious switching of tail or strug gling. No sane man will allow the connecting hoof structure between the wall of the foot and tho frog to be cut away simply to give a more pleasing appearance. By this one makes certain contrac tion of the heels,' with all its attend ant permanent Ills. This tissue is the natural hoof expander and as such must be closely guarded. Did you ever have your foot fitted to a shoe, or do you Insist on having shoes fitted to your feet? Why, then allow a blacksmith to fit your horse's foot to the hot shoe by burning the hoof until there Is equal bearing? To be sure there may be no evid ence of pain, but the searing of the hoof structure with a hot Iron never will be permitted by a humane man. That the operation Injures the foot, makes contraction more likely and unbalances the adjustment of parts cannot but be admitted. One of the most successful stage drivers of the old time told me, years ago that a horse would last a third longer and do better service If Its har ness fitted In every part and I think he was right Take a look the next time you drive out and see if the horse Is the right distance from the carriage to Insure the minimum of force In moving same and yet not hit; if the collar fits; the breastplate or holdback is not too high or low or the saddle too rar rorwara.
