[ "Then c a m e tlhe great spectacles, introduced i n t o popularity by the ad vent of the Black Crook and* the Chi. cage World Fair productions, all hor. j d e r i n g a l o n g the same lines.

"The rivalry in the East coupled ·with the light in the west, increased the interest of the p u b l i c in this now style of sh-ow and within, a short time 'houses were opened all'over the country and souuded the death knell ·of all che 'Old forms of entertainment.

Pictures advanced very rapidly however and soon tile theatres were turned over to this form of cheap entertainment and many paid as such that had been failures for years. "But the tide has again turned Picture managers all over the country have been hedging for months hundreds of failures have been re. corded and thousands of small pic-tur-: houses are living from day to daj only through the patronage of a pub lie in some mstauces, attracted mere, ly through the cheap prices. This does not hold good in a great -man-' of the one night stands, where the competition is not so -great and enor. mous rentals have not absorbed all tho profits. "But the picture has done inuoh for spoken drama, educating the pub. lie along Maes heretofore \mknowr to the patrons of the cheap priced theatre and so apt have become theso pupils, few there are who will sit thru a poorly staged picture to say noth. in-g of spending au even-ing wafcchins a lot of ham -actors attempt the mod. ern drama. So has passed forever the cheap repertoire and these actors of the old school must find work in the cheap vaudeville houses o-r go back to the work from which they were so unfortunately attracted thru misconception o£ the requirements of an art so few have aken up with, honors."
