In Southern houses canceled thelr tlme,

r'theatros of the South were dark so
many nlghts thnt the people bocamo

the playhouses lntended closlng thelr
doors for good.
It was beyond the power of tho
house manngcrs to relleve tho sltua

along, or rather they were falllng to
recolvo the money whlch their patrons
were wllling and anxlous to pass over
to the bnx-ofTiee in exchange for seats
. to productlons whlch never came. lt
was a case of no show, no money, and
the theatrical manager had even
greater rcason for kicking than ihe pub

customed amuseraent, while he was
out just so many dollars and cents on

The slgnlflcance in connection wlth
the restoration of the party rate bv
the Seaboard ls that it will almost
certalnly result In farcing tho other
roads to come to terms wlth a simi

other systems will allow the Seaboard
to have a monopoly of thls buslness.

Miss Barrymoro in rclatlng her own
experlence. Says ahe:
"lt was after many sleepless nights,
much worry and many heart and head
aches that. I appearod before my first
starrlng audlence ln New York und
at tho Sdrrlck Theatre?thc audlence
that was to mako or mar my future
as -in actrcss. For months before tliat
'night I had almost starved myaelf, for
1 could not eat becauso of tho fcarful
anxlety over my appearance that con
stantly preyed on my nilnd. and tlio
play was that very 'Captain Jinks ln
whlch I was roccntly starrlng.
"To say that l waa cxtrcmely nervous
whon I stepped out on that Now York
stago for tho llrst tlme would bo put
tlng lt tnildly. I was simply paralyzcd
with fear. My volco refused to ro
spona to mv will. A great lump gath
ered ln my throat. 1 trombled. Instead
of glvlng mo courage, tho burst of
applauso that greeted my tirst entrance
only served to frighten mo stlll more,
for it meant, to mo. that a great doal
was expected of me by that,audlence.
There before me I saw tho eyos of some
l.-JOO people rlveted upon me, their
eiirs onger to catch my every word.
"Mlsglvlngs were flashlng through
my braln wlth the inexpllcable rapld
ity that characterlzes a dream. It may
be hard to believc, yet I truly wlahed
then that I was an obscuro typowriter
or shopglrl Instead of an actress!
"I was so nri.<Mous to learn the vcr
dict of tho critlcs that I dld not go to
bed at all that night, but juat waltcd
up for thc mornlng papera. Oh, my,
whnt a rellef it was to mo to got thoso
