O. Box 567 BEAD THE ADVERTISER WORLD'S NEWS DAILY JOSEPH PULITZER. The .Father of the Modern Type of Journalism. People who have nothing but criti cism for a paper like the New York World can hear "the other side" In an artiele in The Broadway Magazine by Mr. Hartley Davis, who is plainly a warm admirer of The World and its creator, Joseph Pulitzer. Mr. Davis declares Mr. Pulitzer to have had mo tives beyond criticism in his news paper attacks, never to have fought in a questionable cause, or supported an unworthy candidate, and to have advocated with intense conviction every movement that was for the bet terment of his community or country. Mr. Davis says in part: For years and years Mr. Pulitzer was scornfully referred to as an ad venturer, and the charge was true, in its fair sense, because he adventured in fields that no other journalist had even dreamed of entering. It gives an insight into the courage of the man, his belief in his work, to remember that, when his future and fortune seemed absolutely assured in St. Louis, he risked everything by buying the New York World and starting in to make it a real news paper. Every penny that was risked was his own. The money has been re turned a thousand fold, but he lost more than wealth; for his success cost him his eyesight and his health. His affliction makes it necessary for him to have a large personal staff. No man keeps more closely in touch with what is going on in the world and all the information must come to him by word of mouth. He can not read; he can not distinguish the faces of those about him. He can only listen and think. Of his homes he likes Bar Harbor best and often remains there long af ter the winter snow is on the ground. The bracing air is what appeals to him most, that and the quiet. In summer-time he rises early and, if the weather be fine, he breakfasts on his own private veranda with his physician and companion, who tells him the important events in the day's news. Then comes an exhausting busi ness session' with his private secre tary, which usually lasts two hours. Then, becoming weary and ' needing the air and sunshine, which he can feel if not see, he goes forth to drive, or to ride in an electric launch, ever 1 bidding the boatman to head into the breeze. He draws deep breaths and gives himself up to relaxation for per haps ten minutes. Then be is ready to work with his newspaper secretary, who has been going over the news papers since early morning, digesting not only The World, but its contem poraries. Sometimes he has a visitor from the office, maybe the chief edi torial writer, or the managing editor, or a reporter. This session usually lasts about two hours, and then Mr. Pultizer is ready for luncheon with the family. If the newspaper secretary or visitor from the office, is new, feeling somewhat abashed by the score of people at table and being in the presence of his em ployer and is therefore inclined to ob serve the childish injunction about be ing seen rather than heard. Mr. Pulit zer will probably turn to him and say: "Why don't you talk? I like people about me who talk a great deal, who laugh and are cheerful. I like them to chatter even if they can't be wise or witty. It is the cry of a man who lives in perpetual twilight. It will be many years before Joseph Pulitzer's place in history i3 firmly fixt. Just as he has grown bigger and stronger during his lifetime, so one believes, will his fame grow In the future. ' He came of the people; he will be of the people until he. dies. He has a love for liberty, for equality, as pas sionately savage as the oppression he endured in his youth. He is one of the few human beings who is proof against the adversities of riches. Neither wealth nor years have made him timid or conservative. He is keep ing up the good flght now as vigor ously as ever. When Mr. Pulitzer has been criti cized for the relentless, inhumanly cruel fights he has carried on in his newspaper, people have overlooked the fact that the attacks upon individuals 1 were mere incidents in the battles he has waged against the privilege of caste and class, against crookedness in public office. His bitterest assail ants were those who thought that their riches or their standing in the community should make them im mune from newspaper publicity. His reply has always been unanswerable: "Anything that can not stand the white light of publicity deserves no consideration." No man ever had so clear and comprehensive an idea of the power of publicity as he; no man ever used the weapon so effectively, nor in some ways, so impersonally, since he has never used his newspaper to carry on a personal fight, nor be- j trayed and delivered over his vast power to serve muiviuuui seunsn enu. THREE PLAYS OH THIS WEEK'S REPERTOIRE This week promises to be a busy one at the Orpheum Theater, as Manager Cooley has announced the presenta tion of three excellent plays. With two of themthe company fs already familiar, so that there will not be more than the usual amount of work for the actors. Tomorrow and Tues day night, "When Her Soul Speaks," a version of "The New Magdalen," and one of the strongest emotional dramas written in recent years, will be play ed. In this play Miss Gladys Kings bury has greater scope for displaying her talent than in any play so far pre sented here. The scenes of the play are laid in London and South Africa, he second act being concerned with the Boer war. "When Women Love," the bill for the Wednesday matinee and evening and Thursday night performances, is a pretty domestic play with an unusual ly strong comedy element. At the end of the week melodrama again pre vails, "The Black Flag" being as good a play of the kind as could be pre sented. It will be played first on Fri day night. Monday, February 3, will be "Can ton Night," the members of the local military degree of the Odd Fellows having arranged to sell tickets and share in the receipts, besides attend- j ing the show .in a body. For this I performance Manager Cooley will pre- sent "Other People's Money," a very funny farce. TO AMUSE THE CHILDREN1. Patience Have you tried diabolo yet?

Skilled Artists Hired for Young Folks' Entertainment. - The important position which chil dren hold in the chem- th-ngrj to day is strikingly shown by the in creasing number of professional en tertainers who make a specialty of catering to their enjoyment. Now adays when the little miss ofthe fashionable world gives a pa.y she does not expect her guests to be con tent with old-fashioned gaims, grab bags and Ice cream. Her mj'.fcer is sure :y engage some artist to amuse them for a half hour or mor, just as the grown folk are amused in their drawing rooms after dinner. A favorite entertainer of this kinJ" is. one who appears among the chil dren disguised as an old Southern mammy, with a red bandanna on .ler head, and who tells them comic stories of "Brer Rabbit" and "Brer Fox," in termingling these with darky songs,, which she sings to the accompaniment of a banjo. Another children's ententainer is a little girl, not as old as many of her admiring audience. She arrives at a fashionable home dressed as a fairy, wlth gauzy wings, a wand and a star in her hair. Her specialty is telling fairy, tales and acting them all out as she talks. Between each two tales she gives a sprightly fairy song or dance. There are other children, too young to go on the regular stage, who earn." quite a little money for their parents doing regular song and dance acts at the entertainments of wealthy chil dren. Some of these bring a number of costumes, which they change in the parlor behind screens for different acts. "No," said the mother of one of these, when asked "If she was on the watch for particularly beautiful chil dren's songs and verses to add to the repertory of her little daughter. "No, children today are thoroughly up te date. The songs they enjoy best are the popular ones which everybody is singing and of which they know the words. They love to join in the chorus. "My daughter recites 'Little Orphan Annie' and several' other poems by Eugene Field, but it is only the older children who can really appreciate these. Short bits of verse which tell a story very clearly, comic dialogues and stories are the best to mingle with the song and dance acts. Children are just like grown people they want something which will make them . 'laugh." i 7
