AMERICAN AUDIENC63 Hen ami Women aud Their Bifect Upon l'nlillc Meetlnwu. American audiences are strangely alike lu some things and strangely dis similar iu others. A good committee will take as much pains In the ar rangement of its audience as of Its speakers. An audience seated without crowding is seldom enthusiastic. Nei ther is an audience whose hands are occupied with bundles or umbrellas, an audience largely composed of women or an audience In a cold room. The easiest audiences to address, the most responsive and inspiring, are those composed of men crowded aud packed together and warm. Women naturally do not applaud or cheer. They are by Instinct more self restrained In the public expression of their emotions than men. Every public speaker is complimented by their pres ence, knowing that their quiet word at home Is oftentimes more effective in results than the most enthusiastic shouting on the street corners by the other sex. In a public meeting, how ever, the audience gets its cue from those nearest the speaker. I remember well two audiences, l>oth from the same social class, both crowded, both in large theaters and both largely at tended by women. One happened to be In Colorado, one In Massachusetts. In one meeting the orchestra was re served for womeu. In the other meet ing the men hud the orchestra and the women had the lower gallery and all the boxes. In both cases the audiences were entirely friendly to the speakers. The second meeting was marked by wild enthusiasm, the first one by re spectful attention. In the second case the mass of men in the orchestra urged on the speakers by continued applause. In the first case the men In the galler ies who started to applaud were checked because between them and the speakers was a mass of absolutely silent femininity In the orchestra. I do not say that one meeting was less ef fective than the other, but the differ ence in the strain on the speaker was marked.?From "The Spellbinder," by Colonel Curtis Guild, Jr., in Kcrib ner's.

Actors?Nellie Cox, artist; May Lowell, stenographer. Nellie?Thus are my sins visited upon me. Did you ever see such an ugly, inartistic collar as this orange thing ?with the red freckles? May?No; unless it 1s the purple tie in your other hand. But the blue and the yellow collars are both pretty. Nellie?Neither harmonizes with my blue shirt waist and my complexion. May?How did you happen to receive 60 many collars? Did you ask for them? Nellie?Ask for them? Hardly. 1 never wear anything except linen col lars. As I said, however, it is my own fault. Last year my aunt sent me an expensive but hideous collar which 1 Immediately donated to a church rum mage sale? May?Then wrote your aunt that it was just what you wanted. Nellie?My conscience would not al low me to do that. I tilled up four | pages, however, on the one redeeming feature of that collar. I spoke of the I texture of the silk and dwelt on Its wonderful richness. May?I should have thought your aunt would have seen through that. I "bhs ought to bee you now." When n girl "goes into raptures over some detail of a gown I know she does not like the thing as a whole. Nellie?My aunt's education has been neglected, for she doesn't know that. Let mo read you her letter: My, Dcnr Child?There was so much pathos in your note of thanks last year I could see hfrw you loved and longed for the beautiful, and 1 know that I am not making a mistake In" sending you one I more pretty thing to go with you all through the year. I have told your east ern cousins how you enjoyed, the collar I gave you last* Christmas, and they are going to send you some. We have hired a poor seamstress to qaako them, so I I have added pleasure to my own lite in | holding out a helping hand to two de pendent women. May?She must- have a sense of hu mor if she calls you dependent. -She ought to see you now. . Nellie?I'll have to waste 10 cents postage In writing letters of thanks, and 1 have already paid 20 cents extra for postage on the packages. 1 could have treated myself to a good maga zine or a box of chocolates for that amount. May?Last year I learned that an aunt was going to give me a year's subscription to a Journal which de votes its pages to telling girls how to treat their employers and how to dress I on $50 a year. 1 get all, that kind of I thing 1 wish without reading about it, so 1 took pains to criticise the paper before her and at the same time dis played my worn gloves? Nellie?And she gave you a pair of gloves? Lucky girl! May?I thought she would, but she sent me a housekeeping magazine and i wrote telling me that I ought to learn to cook, as if a business girl has half a chance. She said that 1 might not like the magazine at first, but would become attached to it in timfc. I he came detached. Nellie?What do you mean? May?I sold It for 00 cents on the dollar, ^rent to the theater and wrote j 9UQtle that I had derived more picas ore from her present than from any other she had ever sent me. Nellie?Total depravity I ; May?No; only good business man agement. I suggest that you sell your misfit presents. Nellie?I'll do It. 1 know a girl who likes fussy things, especially if she thinks shg.'is getting them cheap. 1 will tellthe collars are too elabo rate for mljr'frialn clothes, but will Just suit hers.*.; I" am certain that she will take them, so 1 will Invite you to the theater for uext Saturday.
