Edward E. Rose and ipritten by Ulss
?Virginia Brooks, Is now in the bands

form for the holiday trade.
"Little Lost Sister" is a vivid ex
pose of the methods used by the un
scrupulous band of vampires In their
nefarious business, portraying tbe
snares laid for the unwary girls to
force them into a disreputable life,
and bring dishonor into the family cir
According to a published report of
a Joint committee from three Chicago
women'B clubs, the girl of the short
skirt, wide plump, childish eyes and
competent manner, has been put under
the sociological microscope.
The result of Ihe committee's inves
tigation was to ascertain what be
comes of tbe untrained girl who leaves
school at fourteen, with tbe intention
of going to work.
In their lengthy report they agree:
That of the Ave thousand -women
Chicago's slum district claims each

trained girls who leave school at four
That such children are a public men

girls who are said to (all Into vlco
each year," said the report, "a large
number are the girls who have he
come despairing and hopeless In hunt
ing for work, or have been led astray
when Idle, by the gayety and glamor
of the streets and dance balls.
'The work of caring for these girls
by securing them wofk Is to prevent
kthem from going astray.
'The compulsory law of Illinois re
quires that all children from the ages
of seven to fourteen years, shall bo
in school. It further requires that
children between the ages of fourteen
and sixteen shall be either in school
or at work. None realize the diffi
culties and dangers which the children
are obliged to go through ,in seeking
for work. These are, of course,.more,
formidable In the case of the girl than
in .that of the boy.
"ThiB is a period in the lives of them
all when they most need direction.
Eager and bewildered they become the
prey of unscrupulous employment
agencies or still worse persons."
Miss Anno E. Davis, of Chicago, a
trained Investigator, was employed by
