Ings all over tho world It speedily progressed frjom
Interest in placos and things to curiosity rogardlng
tho actual appoaranco of tho peoplo regarding whoso
doings tho tapers had much to say. It wab not
enough that tho newspapers should print as n coun
terfeit presentment of this or that public man a
carefully posed bust portrait, touched up to show tho
oubject oh ho wanted to appear rathor than as
ho actually did appear. Newspaper roadors with
a thirst for accurato Information camo to demand
pictures that would show tho subjects ns they
actually uppoarod. Moreover, they wanted not a
commonplnco bust photo, but a full-length pic
turo that would represent Us object as ho would
appear to ono who met him on tho street and
with a hint as to his distinctive characteristics
ob to dress, otc. From this demand was born tho
personal "snnp shot."
Nowadays tho snapshot is to a largo extent
displacing tho stereotyped vlsago in tho publlo
prints. Almost everybody who nchlovos famo
or notoriety must must ncods fall victims to tho
sharpshooters of tho camera. Tho snap-shottor is
no rospecter of persons or callings so long as "hu
man Interest" is present, nnd everybody, from
preachers to pugilists and from statesmen to
suffragists, is tho quarry of tho camera scout at
ono tlmo or another. Somo of tho peoplo who aro
snap-shotted manifestly relish it; a great number
nccopt it ns a matter of cour30 and a minority
wriggle and cquirm and gven fight at sight of
a camera. Conspicuous among tho lattor aro
Hnrry Lohr, tho Nowport society pot of monkoy
dinner famo, and J. Pierpont Morgan, tho finan
cier. It must bo admitted that tho father of
trusts does not mnko a protty picturo whon taken
unawares and ho evidently renllzca this, for ho Is
usually guarded by several private dotoctlvcs
whon ho appears in public and carries a cano
which ho Is quick to uso on any offondlng cainora
that ho can reach.
Publlo ofllclals, headed by tho president of tho
United States, aro usually tho most satisfactory
subjects for Biiap-shots because, whatever may
bo their natural inclination In tho mntter, they
quickly learn to submit gracofully to this sort
of attention. A leading statesman or army or
navy ofllclal who realizes that at public functions
ho is llablo to bo contlnunliy In tho camera eyo
Is likely to Instinctively avoid thoso awkward
attitudes and facial grimaces that somotlmcs spoil
things In tho case of a celebrity who Is now to
tho gamo and solf-consclous in consequonco. From
tho standpoint of tho snap-shottcrs perhaps tho
most satisfactory subjects In this country are tho
diplomats at Washington that is, tho alien ofll
clals who aro stationed at our seat of government
as tho ambassadors or ministers of foreign pow
ers. For ono thing, theso titled forelgnora nro
possessed of gorgeous uniforms that show up
well in unconventional pictures, and thon again
thoy aro accustomed to being constantly on dress
Tho snnp-Bhottor must "quick on tho trigger"
and ho cultivates ability in this direction almost
as earnostly as tho gun fighter of tho west did
in tho old days. Tho nowspapor snap-shots aro
mado by means of special cameras mado specially
for tho purposo, and costing as much aa $250
nploco. Only a fraction of a second is roqulred,
of courso, to mako a snap-shot, onco tho Ions is
focused upon a colobrlty In a desired position, but
tho uncertainty Ilea In tho fact that tho colobrlty
Is seldom actually posing for his picturo. Moro
than likely ho may not roallzo that ho Is being
caught by the camera or mayhap may bo trying

sonable certainty tho futuro moves of his subject
No other American of tho day is so much pho

Is by no means an easy fiubject for good picturos.
It is not that ho objects to tho operation; 'Indeed,
ho seems to utterly ignoro tho cameras that aro
polntod at him a dozen times a day. But tho
colonol is ono of tho most activo nnd sudden ot
men, and tho snnp-shottcr must bo on tho alert
overy mlnuto of tho timo or ho loses tho golden
opportunity to catch tho ox-prcsldont nt tho "psy
chological moment." This was admirably lllus-
"In theso days of specialists you can't Just

nmong London's fashlonablo "men-about-town."
In remarking about tho provalenco of facial hlr
outo adornments, a prominent hairdresser said:
"Ono would not havo thought that tho coming
of King Gcorgo to tho throno would havo mado
much difference to tho fashion of current hair
dressing, In view of tho fact that his father woro
a beard for so many years, but I can ansuro you
It has, and a very great dlfforonco nt that.
"In nil probability tho presont fashion of tho
point beard is duo in a great moasuro to so young
a man affecting ono. I havo been told that thero
was a groat rago for boards among 'men-about-town
when King Edward first grow a board many
years ago,
"In my opinion tho averago Englishman Is
trcmondously Imitattvo. Tho etylo of beard
King Georgo wears la appropriately named tho
torpodo' In tho navy, and omco tho king's no
cooslon many of tho youngor mon In tho oorvloo
havo started to grow them."
tho western towns seethed to hnvo much moro solf
importnnco than common sense. In Denvor two
of tho camera mon wero left bohlnd whon tho
colonel and his party went to tho auditorium and
arrived to find that building packed to tho doors
and surrounded by a ring of mounted pollco. To
ono of theso thoy appealed In vain. "But wo nro
bupposed to bo with Mr. Roosovolt's party," said
ono of thorn finally. "Well," wns tho chilly ro
eponso, "If you nro supposed to bo with them, why
aren't you?" And tho ofllccr's horso scornfully
switched his tnll in their faces.
It wns in Denver, too, that ono of tho most
nmuslng scenes of tho trip was witnessed. Tho
Press club gavo a "chuck-wagon" luncheon to tho
colonol In n park. "Here," Bnld tho camera mon,
"Is our chanco for somo good stuff." So thoy put
in fresh 111ms or plates and hustled out thero by
tho dozen. Tho colonel, in tho midst of a throng
of self-invited Colorado deputy sheriffs, Btood nt
tho rough board tablo and evory tlmo ho reached
for u bit of meat or put n morsel of food Into his
mouth thero wns n perfect fusillade of clicks from
tho cameras that surrounded him. Tho photog
raphers wero ranged in n triplo ring nhout tho
chuck wagon, thoso with littlo cameras in front,
stooping low; next, tho men with tho lnrgor hand
cameras, and In tho ronr tho local artists, who
had big machines on high tripods. It was In truth
a comical sight, but tho colonol did not seem to
mind It a bit, and went on eating nnd talking with I
tho utmost enthusiasm.
Tho visit to Choyonuc, of course, gavo tho snap
ohottcrs their best chances for plcturosquo views,
for thero tho colonel could bo cnught almost any
timo slinking hands with tho cowboys, cowgirls ami
gaudily painted Indians, or applauding tho work
of tho broncho-hustors.
Thero la a Chicago nowspapor man who onco
had tho unique expcrlenco of being tho only person

Tho monarch In question was Mataafn, who had
been elected king of Snmoa by a majority of tho
inhabitants of thoso delectable Islands In 1808, Ills
