THE CENTURY NOT !
TO BE PUBLISHED I IN ENGLISH FIELD President of Publication, Announces Intention of Suspending • LADY WARWICK TO WRITE FOR FILMS Will Also Permit Motion Picture Con cern to Use Warwick Castle and Her Own Estate at Easton By HAYDEN CHURCH London. Oet. 4.—(Spec*al.)—It is re ported that W. W. Ellsworth, president of the Century company, who has just sailed for America, made arrangements while here to stop the publication of the Century as an English magazine after January 1, next, as It Is more convenient and economical to buy only the American serial rights of the work of some of the big English authors with whom the Century has deals pending for future work. This leaves Harpers and Srlbners as the only American magazines separately published here and catering for English sales. There is. to bo sure, an English World's Work, but it now' has prac tically no connection w ith the American periodicals of that name. On the other hand, the English editors are buying more and more of the contents of the American magazines for republtcation here, and the work of many American writers who ordinarily would not find a foothold here is becoming known to English readers. Although American editors still come to England for a large proportion of the highest quality of fiction, it looks as if the Amer can story tellers in all but the lop rank were getting the upper hand here as rapidly as the American playwright of the same grade. Princess Troubetzkoy, best Known as Amelie IUves, is not so well known in England as In America, but her new novel, *‘\Yorld s End’’ is to appear ser ially here as well as In the United States by arrangement w*th “The Weekly Budget,’’ and will probably be brought out by an English publisher next spring. Meanwhile the princess cousin, HalPe Ermine IUves. who has not hitherto made much impression on English readers, is gaining a foothold with her "Valiants of Virginia,” which is geting some first class rate review’s Lord Douglas’ Book Evidently there is going to be a com motion over Lord Alfred Douglas’ forthcoming book to be entitled "Oscar Wilde and Myself.” Ronald Ross. Wilde’s literary executor, is doing his best to prevent its publication, knowing that Lord Alfred has no groat affection for him, and will probably make a bit ter attack on him. It is reported that the book is now finished and is being revised under legal advice to make sun that it is free from libels, and that it will be published this autumn. Lord j Alfred ha* announced that he proposes to make a spirited defense of his rep utation. No one who read “Elizabeth and Her German Garden” will have forgotten the April and May babies who figured in that delightful book, and the Countess von Arnheim’s readers may be sur prised to learn that these have now arrived at their tw enties and are study ing at Girton, the English Vassar. A sweet girl graduate tells me that they are fair-faired, clever without be ing brilliant, and altogether "nice little things” really called after the months in which they were born. Their mother, the now widowed Countess von Arn heim, does not encourage them to be luxurious or extravagant, and, aided and abetted by her, they always spend their long vacations In somo original manner—tramping, caravaning, or camping out. a ouccessiui auuioi j That phenomenally successful lady, Mrs. Florence Barclay, though she had to go to America to be “discovered,’' has now no end of honor in her own country and is, in. fact, one of the favored few’ among authors whose books are invariably reviewed on the day of their publication. Truth to tell, however. Mrs. Barclay's latest story, ‘The Broken Halo.” has had only a sorry reception at the bauds of the English critics, most of whom, in fact, demand who it can be that read Mrs. Barclay’s novels? Says the "bookwhack er” of the Daily News: If it were not for its probable enormous sales, it Would be the easiest to sav nothing about this kind of writing. Yet what is read so widely must have some good quality in it. though, frankly, we can not discover it." The all-conquering ‘‘movies*’ are now making a conquest of the literary mem bers of the British peerage. The Marchioness of Townshend has been turning out film dramas for some time, and now the Countess of Warwick an nounces that she has made an arrange ment with a British moving picture firm to do likewise. The countess de clares that her chief objects in doing are to educate the masses and to “give the British films and impetus in the competition for supremacy with foreign films.” but the fact remains that the Warwicks are in extremely low water financially, a meeting of the earl’s cred itors having followed the sale of hia town houses, so one suspects that L s. d. has weighed to some extent writh her ladyship. It appears, moreover, that got only has the countess.—who once became known the world over as the Bubbling Brooke—contracted to write dramas for the aforementioned house, but has placed at their disposal War wick castle and its historic environs and her own estate at Easton, Essex, which boasts many thousands of acres of deer-park, gardens and woodland, to afford a .setting for the filming of her plots. First Play Sensational “l have written my first play in e highly sensational vein.” said Lady Warwick in an interview yesterday. “It is called ‘The Great Pearl Affair,’ and, therefore, is extremely topical. But in time I hope t° prove that things of a far higher character can be filmed. “I have listened to Mr. H. G. Wells’ view’s on the future of the cinema as an instructional medium, and it is in this di rection that I hope to lift my wrork to a more elevated plane. “I have decidede to do several things in the field of historical drama. There is much history that is practically un known in the W’arwick archives, and I have two incidents now in mind that will form admirable subjects for dra matic treatment. “They concern Piers Gaveston and Isabel, one of the daughters of the king-maker who married the Duke of of Malmsey, and they will have War of malmsey, and they will have War- i wick cast!'- as a sotting."
