"Winter's contrlliiitlon, It be-
Inff the first of n series of biographical
ketches of lluyer this most famous of
all American drnmatlo critics proposes to
write. The llrst volume Is devoted to an
account of the origin and present at
tainments of Mr. Tyrone. Tower. In his
jirefaco Mr. Winter ulvos u fairly clear
outllno of his purpose, setting forth!
"This booh contains the first of a scries
of sketches of 'llvcs of tho l'layers,'
which I have undertaken to write, with
the design of recording and commcmo
rating, chiefly, If not exclusively, tho
achievements of Important actors now
living. I havo chosen Tyrono Powers as
tho subject of tho first of theso projected
biographies because his life has been one
of exceptionally Interesting adventure,
In some respects as romantic as even
that of Edmund K'can nnd for tho still
more persuasive reason that tho ex
ample provided by his resolute Iwrsovor
unco against many and stalwart obsta
cles and his patient endurance of much
and grievous hardship tund disappoint
ment, has enlisted my sympathy as one
that Is worthy to be commended to re
spect and emulation. Imiulry and ob
servance relative to hfs career have
shown me that ho has continually
cherished a high Ideal of tho actor's art,
nnd sedulously wished and labored to do
fine things, to merit a IiIkIi runic to
dignify tho thenter, and to benefit so
ciety, and therefore, 1 believe him to be
one of tho actors of this trunsltlonal
J'trlod who especially deserve to be
cheered, encouraged and celebrated."
Further explanatory matter Is afforded
by tho preface, but this must sufficiently
tell the object of tho quest on which the
venerable critic has set out. The unJ
dertaklng Is noteworthy for several rea
sons. Klrst, Mr. Winter Is a writer of
charming stylo, of proved ability, und of
such rlpo Judgment, born of experience,
us to entitle his views of all that apper
tains to tho theater and Its peoplo to
the greatest of respect and admiration.
In his sketch of Tyrone Power, he has
not only given us a story of the life Of
the actor, his struggles and adventureM,
his successes and his aspiration, but he
has furnished u most Interesting corollary
of critical comment on other actors, some
very Illuminating facts that may have
been forgotten, and eomo or his own
opinions, always .Interesting, concerning
contemporary plays and tho efforts of
players and managers an well. For a
secondary cause of Intetest, wo may look
to the further volumes of tho series as
giving an Idea of whom Mr. Winter con
siders aa being Important among the liv
ing American players. Another, and
doubtless one that Mr. Winter gave no
thought whatever, Interesting feature Is
that the volume will tnuke very light the
task of the press agent for Mr. Power's
coming venture eg a 'producer of "Julius
Caesar," for all that lucky man may
want to use will be found tn the book,
Including the mistakes of William Faver
sham In his revival of tho play. l-t us
be cheered by the thought that Mr.
Power will not pernotuato these depar
tures when ho puts hjs offering before
the public. The book Is published by
Moffatt, Yard & Co.
Frank Carlos Griffith, who lias hen
"back with tho show." that Is the acting
manager on duty with the company, for
Mrs. Lrftngtry, Margaret Mather and .Mr
FUke, writes a little volume concernlnt
the latter. It Is biographical lit Its nu
ture, and tells a somewhat connonto-i
story of tho Ufa and achievements of our
forctnoat actress. It elves an lntlmitu
view of the aetress und something of thii
woman, and will be found of Interest be
cause of Its matter-of-fact way of telllnr;

"Camllle" Is probably the most widely
known In Madame Bernhardt' repertoire,
because In It Madame reaches all the
great heights' of which she U capable.
Victor Hugo wrote "Luerece Borgia '

the birth of Madame Bernhardt, yet he
