It Is in the form of letters ad- | dressed to an ambitious young friend I who had been inoculated with the vi- j rus, who scorned the sign's counsel, In these days of frantic effort to break into the theatrical profession, a word of advice ex cathedra will be la and who has amply fulfilled the proph esy of horrible mediocrity. It Is prop er to here mention the fact that this is the first time these words of Mr. Booth have appeared In print: Th© First Letter. "Friend Blank—'A little bird whis pered to me' that you contemplated se rious designs against my disreputable profession, and as its chamoian I pro test most vehemently—like a Dutch uncle—against any such proceeding!

I as your friend an ! well wisher feel it to be my duty to squelch you with a wet blanket, to quench If possible your dramatic ardor with my sincere advice. To enter into details aad give you all the wnys and wherefores would be tedious and of little value, for every enthusiast has an offset for every adverse argument. But let me hope that you will be gulded by the simple 'don't do if of one whose experience of theatrical . j . . . . drudgery dates from early boyhood and take In good part his opinion that you are not naturally adapted to the actor's art. and 'tis too late to begin with any likelihood of success. To be a mere boot-jack among the riff-raff Of bummers that make up the rank and file of the corps dramatique is a dog's fate, and a mangy, yaller dog at that! Don't do it! in capitals and the largest type. Love it as you will—at a distance, across the fiery boundary of the footlights—no nearer—and it may always be a source of enjoyment to you; but as a disappointed, 'crushed tragedian' you would curse It as the cause of your unhappiness. The thea ter is over-full of disappointed heroes who In almost any other pursuit would have achieved some show of satisfac tion, which tbe subordinate actor never knows. "Now, my boy, direct your mind at once into a different channel, and re gard the theater merely as an occasion al relaxation from practical business strain, and one of these days you'll thank me for my interference. "I hope to Ree you and say good bye in person before I sail for Europe, June 30, by the Gallia. 1 shall act here (at Booth's) In April. Let me know when you wish to see the play. Kind regards to your parents. Sincerely yours, Edwin Booth." The Second Letter. "Dear Miss Blank—Beg your brother not to waBte his money In so silly a Tenture and to have nothing whatever to do with the parties named In the advertisement you sent. Adventurers and speculators are at tbe best vision aries. They can accomplish nothing for the 'art of acting.' Rubbish! The ! !

The function of art is to do, not to cre ate. What is it in the works of gen ius that fills the heart with awe and beauty? Whether we look upon the masterpieces of Raphael or upon that i fretted architecture which Michael 1 Angelo piled up in the dome of St. Peter's, whether we listen to the s id ; ° ""^t or to the tempestu ch ^ d ? ^Bner-lt is strangely elt ' U is because their great arche types exist.
