& 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
“The stage is the actor’s religion and

hi addition to being an excellent story
of the stage, full of movement, tension,
and "good situations,” a double love story
forms ias Miss Sager’s folk might say')
a “special added attraction.”
Says tlie doctor, when Anne asks him
why he doesn't come to New York and
become a famous practitioner: "It’s
just us good sport to cure a man in an
old farmhouse as it would be in a Fifth
avenue palace, you know.”
Said Anne: "To bo obscure, mediocre,
lost in the crowd—that'* horrible! 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

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 judges themselves
could not agree as to the order of merit
of these four .novels.
The story lias to do with the time when
the girl Ellen—the heroine—is In Canada
r . ■
Author of “Anne Actress"
and she opened a letter entrusted to her—
and started a train of circumstances that
made two strong men enemies and rival!
for her love.
Ellen leaves college eager to reform
the world. She is the incarnation of ard
ent. visionary. lovable youth, uncon
sciously a little hard. "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? The world will always have
its Augean stable and there will always
be prudes to fill It. and it will never be
absolutely cleansed.”

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.

praise enough to be sure.

Radium at Home
From the Philadelphia Ledger
With radium selling at $t 80,000 a
gram, and one gram the largest quan
tity for which an order can be taken,
it will require many freight cars to
transport the entire ouput of the plant
at Sellersville. Pa., to the market. yet
it is Interesting to know that we have
at our dors an establishment which is

000,000. Dr. Kelly has estimated that
theer are now from 156 to 20 grams
In the entire world. A thousand tons
of ore In the Paradox valley. Col.,
mines of the new "Radium Institute"
yielded sev*n grams. Though the life
uf radium is approximately 2000 years,
the enormouF number of victims ol
cancer mattes it imperative to increase
tho meager available supply, if there is
any hope of using it on a largo scale
;is a therapeutic agent. 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. In other words, the deaths
due to this dread malady number
about 47,000 a year.
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. This
important development Is in conform
ity with tlie tradition which in the
early days of our country established
