Concerning the modern tendency townrd

matter is wo have not enough leisure cIiikh
Kople In this country to supixirt the Bhnkes
issirean or tho legitimate drama. This cult
ure leisure element may come In time, und
wo inny have an established theatre devoted
to the careful nud ulabornto production of
the plays of the great pool ami dramatist,
but Just at thu present moment the people
who patronize our theatres are engaged very
actively In money making. I say "peoplo,"
for thu women nro entering all branches of
business life now ns well a thu men. A man

They hnvo been ngnged In play serloun

some of thorn have had n little one-net trag

role. When evening coiuwi they want relnx
ntlon, a change of scene Iu tact, thuy wntit
to laugh, and to laugh nt something thnt car
ried them far away from the serious scciich
they have witnemod during tho day, for thero
Is not much fun or Jollity Iu money getting.
This iu my opinion I why farce nnd comedy
has taken such n foothold Iu our theatres nnd
why it prosper no,"
