VOLUME, xxxxm_h BIRMINGHAM, ALABAMA, SUNDAY, MARCH 8, 1914 SPORTING SECTION XUMBKK OOKSHELE _'xmr -— '1 “ANNE, ACTRESS.’’ iy Juliet G. Sager. Frederick A. Stokes & Co., Publishers, New York. fh "Anne, Actress.” Juliet G. Sager has written a very unusual story, which has a gripping sort of interest and philos ophy ail through it. and which is never dull for a single moment. Two totally different philosophies of life are vltualized in the story—one being that of the country doctor, James Wal lace, and his unselfish devotion, while the other is exemplified in the woman 1 erself—Anne, the neurotic, the brilliant, the over-ambitioup. and who is saved from destruction, only through her lov* for her daughter. Much has been said o? the perils con fronting the inexperienced young girl <oming to New York to go on the stage, but ‘Anne, Actress,” chows for the first time the dangers in the path of the young dramatist. How the experienced actress can campaign for a role she likes by pulling wool over the eyes of the im pressionable playwright, and what hin drances to his success stage rivalries may produce, are interestingly shown by Miss Pager's novel. All aspiring dramatists— and weary managers would say that in cludes everybody— should read it. Miss Sager has had experience on the stage from touring the country in “one night stands” to playing big roles in the large cities. Although she lias now re tired from the boards, she considers the acting profession one of the most fasci nating open to women, In spite of all its disillusions and liscouragements. She believes, however, that no girl should rush into it without first thoroughly arm ing herself with information and train ing, as the question of whether it is suit able as a profession can be decided only by careful consideration of each indi vidual case. The book abounds in rare humor and •pigramatic diction among other bright examples being some statements as fol lows: “The stage is the actor’s religion and SORE, TIRED FEET “TIZ” for puffed-up, aching sweaty, calloused feet and corns I i Good-bye sore feet, burning feet, ■wollen feet, sweaty feet, smelling feet, tired feet. i Good-bye corns, callouses, bunions • nd raw spots.

It teems to me that I couldn’t die. leaving no mark at all upon the world. And I shan't! 1 won’t*” It is not until Anne sees her philosophy work out in her daughter Elsie that her horizon broadens. Elsie is a study in he redity. With her mother’s view of life, and inheriting also her mother's beauty, cleverness and ambition, upon which has been crossed the selfishness and knavish ness of her father, she Is the embodiment of individualism carried to its extreme. A MODERN EYE” By May Edington. Frederick A. Stokes & Co., Publishers, New York. "A Modern Eve” by May Edington is one of the four best novels submitted for a prize of JL1000 ($6000) offered by its English publishers for the best manu script of the year.

"The youngest ac tor-manager-playwright in London” and a determined, self-made newspaper own er struggle against each other to wake her. and win her away from the cause to which she has resolved to devote heart and soul. The background of Ellen's father and mother, the firebrand clergyman preach ing to an apathetic English village with the light of spiritual battle In his eye, and the frail, gray, tender woman who smilingly lets her daughter go away out of her life, is an exquisite picture of married lovers. They are like a breath from a still garden In Ellen's struggle to find herself. There ere other real people, too—Jane with the plain face and tfie sad and frivolous heart; Tngram with his narrow eyes, narrow mind and use ful map of life, and Rose the governess with soft eyes, who disturbs his plans for success. But Ellen is the point of the book. El len, born fighter like her father, with her intellect kindled against the wrongs o# the world, reckoning without her heart —and it is a big *one. She is a real girl, whom one cannot forget. The author is a very clever woman and delivers some very bright sayings on questions of the day. Recently she had this to say about dress; "Prudery, as it seems to me. Is an at tiibute of one of the most unpleasant types of rnind in existence, and modern women's dress is at the moment raising a great outcry from Prudery. Need any one mind? There are to many human pigs In the world, in most respectable positions, and they cannot give them selves any bodily satisfaction which would impeach those respectable posi tions. But they can and do, satisfy them selves by attributing deliberate indecency and sensuality to perfectly innocent con ceptions. and then talking about them In the guise of wouTd-he reformers. They are able to enj*>y the indecent words roll ing in their mouths in the guise of hypo critical and decorous accusation. Ts there anything more indecorous .than excessive decorum?

'MARK TIDIV By Clarence B. Kelland. Ill up* rated by \V. \V. Clarke. Harper Brothers, Pub lishers. New York. Whenever a book is published that has the slightest resemblance to anything as popular as "Tom Sawyer." there is an instant demand for it. and Clarence B. Kelland may be paid In bis story of "Mark Tidd." to have written- u sort of pres.mt-day "Tom Sawyer,” which is praise enough to be sure. A group of small boys who are full of 1 ranks and practical jokes and a pench ant for getting into mischief and then getting out. as most small boys do. is the gist of the story, and it is very clev erly told in the small boy vernacular by one of them.

Philadelphia’s death rate from this cause la 87.2 per 100,000, as compared with 111.2 for Bos ton and 122.8 for Albanv. The average rate for the whole country Is 75 per 100,090.

With the organisation of the on* - million-doliar corporation by Mr. Du Pont, this region is becoming the cen ter of the world’s radium industry.
