It is interesting to note that such
a well known figure as Arnold Ben--
nett was one of those responsible for
bringing the play into proniinence,
and in a delightful introduction. dr.
Bennett gives an account of the "pre-
miere" of the piece at this theater in
Iammersmith, a suburb of London.
And speaking of this famous Eng-
lish critic, it may be apropos here to
say a word concerning the newest play
from his pen: "Sacred and Profane
Love," which made its debut.to Amer-
ican audiences in New York last
month, with Miss Elsie Ferguson in
the leading feminine role of Carlotta.
Play of Modern Life
It is notably a play of modern life,
built about the spell which Emilio
Diaz, a fictive world's famous pianist
casts upon Carlotta Peel, a young
English girl, during a recital at which
he plays Chopin. One may question
the possibility of a call as impelling
as that which Carlotta feels drawing
her to the pianist, but he cannot but
admire the nicety with which the au-
thor treats his theme.
Carlotta easily dominates the play
at all' times and Mr. Bennett has
drawn her with exquisite delicacy and
consistency throughout. One sees a
touching pathos in her lonely life,
governed always by her "sacred love"
for the absent Diaz, whom she has seen
but once, and a gripping heroism in
her decision to reject Tspenlove, the
"profane" lover to' go back to the
pianist, who, after an. illness has tak-
en to drug and becomes a morpho-
Her decision touches one of the high
lights of the play, and when the cli-
max comes as Diaz is found, almost a-
hopeless addict to morphine who at-
tempts to kill her when she approach-
es him, the reader is touched by Car-
lotta's great faith in her ability to
cure him of his vice.

By Bruce Millar
Few indeed are the authors today
who can write of their contemporaries
biographies which read like romances;
few indeed are they who can crowd
twenty-five years of American history,
politics, and prophecy in a scant 300
pages, maintain the average reader's
attention and interest throughout, and
not assume the style of the text-book
Yet Professor William H. Hobbs in
his book, "Leonard Wood," published
March 6 by G. P. Putnams' Sons, has.
ilone just this.
Sirong Style -
From its ringing dedication, which
is an indictment of all Americans who
refused to be shown the light, to the
last quotation of some of the General's
most recent speeches, there is a certain
toughness of style not common to
biographers, that satisfies an Ameri-
can's desires for forceful directness.
Professor Hobbs' book is not merely
the story of one great man: It is the
narrative of an era which produced
stupenduous problems,-and of the
men who coped with them. Mainly,
however, it is the story of one of these,
who, because he was first-class man,
attacked and accomplished some of the
hardest tasks the .nation set before
horn, but was hampered, and nagged,
and blocked, by little third and fourth-
rate men who happened to be his nom-
inal superiors.
Life of Wood
In these brief pages we see Leonard
Wood as a medical student at Harvard
tutoring his way through sbhool; .as a
contract surgeon in; the Geronimo cam-
paign, of -which he' was lat~e; put in
charge; as the renovator of Santiago,
the city which "could be smelled ten
miles at sea"; as the builder of the
Cuban republic where 70 per cent of
the citizens were illiterate; as the suc-
cessful administrator of that "Hell's
Half Acre of the ,East,"-the Moro
Province; and again as the shelved
Chief of Staff, trainer of two crack
divisions, thorough soldier and gentle-
man, whose motto in spite of adver-
sity has always been: "Do things, but
don't talk about them."

3 Days Only, Starting TOMORROW
Founded on the Great Stage Success by Augustus Thomas







They called him "traitor," and he gloried in the shame. His cronies were those who sneered when
the flag went by. His soldier son, giving his life for Union, left him only a message of scorn. Hi wife,
the love of his youth, turned from him as from a thing unclean, and died without saying goodbye. The lads
in the street reviled him--cheered when he went to prison. But one day this "traitor" received a letter bear-
ing the mark of the White House and scrawled by a big rough hand:-

I alone know
thing worth while.

what you did and what you endured. I cannot reward you. Man cannot reward any-
I send you the flag that flew at Vicksburg. Some time I hope'to shake your hand.

That was all his reward-all he wished.

The Inspiring,, wondefful end l

When Lionel Barrymore played "The Copper-
head" on the stage, women and men alike wept like
children-rose from their seas and cheered. Now
the patrons of this theatre will see this same great
drama-enacted by a cast of thousands-with Barry-
more in the title role!
