vincible obstacle. The best linguists on earth, the Russians and Hollanders, speak French perfectly, German fairly well, and English in a most distressing manner. Even in this hemisphere south of the Rio Grande English is practically unknown, whereas ninety per cent of the educated classes speak French as fluently as they do their native Spanish or Portuguese."

John Morley, when editor of the "Pall Mall Gazette," had for an assistant another distinguished journalist, W. T. Stead. Morley, according to a recently published book, had the scholar's predilection for experts, while Stead questioned their availability in journalism. "Suppose you had to have an article on sun-spots," said Morley, "would you get an astronomer to write it who knows everything about the subject, or a journalist who knows nothing?" "The journalist, most assuredly," Stead replied; "if you get an astronomer to write the article he will write it for astronomers, and use terms which your readers will not understand. The net effect will be that your reader will not learn what you want him to." "But." queried Morley, "is that not setting ignorance to instruct ignorance?" "By no means. It is setting a man who is intelligent to tap the brains of a specialist, and then to serve up his knowledge so that it can be understood by the ordinary reader." Apparently the debate ended here.

An advertisement in a New York newspaper is contributed by a reader who thinks it is as remarkable as any in the "agony" column of the London "Times:"

Wanted.-Well-known poet will exchange manuscript of unpublished volume of verse for use of sparsely furnished cottage for Summer. Address Poet,

"A man went into a store and bought a pair of shoes for $10, and gave the storekeeper a $50 bill in payment. The shoe man went to the butcher to change the bill, returned and gave his customer $40 in change. Later the butcher found that the $50 bill was a counterfeit and the shoe dealer refunded him $50 in good money. What was the shoe man's loss?"

So writes a subscriber, little knowing. apparently, that he has stated a problem that has taxed the powers of the ablest minds for generations. From a chapbook of the Middle Ages we extract this


"Thys wycked swindleer made his eschape with the shoes and £8 ($40) in goode monnaie. The merchaunt kepte £2 ($10). Later hee had to coughe up ye £2 ($10) with £8 ($40) of his owne cashe to ye butchyr. So hee loses £8 ($40) and ye shoes. N. B. If ye shoes coste hym £1 ($5) to make, hys loss is onlye £9 ($45)."

films are received on the other side of the globe.

America's Sweetheart also would not be satisfied with her far-away audience. These queer Peruvians, Chileans, and half a dozen of other recently movieinfected nationalities of South America, all of them are blind to the charms of your Mary.

It is not so much the fault of the players as the film-makers. What is consid

ered "sure fire" in the States does not work there, below the Great Belt. Happy endings leave the audience dissatisfied. The inevitable embrace in the last reel is not seldom met with an open sneer.

Strange creature is the South American. No less than half a dozen murders (on the screen) can satisfy him. Suicides are even more in vogue. And if you want to please his heart thoroughly, kill the hero and make the heroine fade away, mourning him! He is just like a Russian, in this respect.

One of the pictures most popular in South America was "Hijas Perdidas" (Perished Daughters), a melodramatic German production, with a brokenhearted parent in the last scene. He discovers his son lured into a bad house kept by his own daughter! This is meant as a punishment for the sins of his early youth.

There is a nice dying scene, besides, and several love's illusions smashed. Also a couple of ruined girls. Lot of unpunished villains. Tragic ending. The public was delighted.

I am not going to analyze thoroughly the whys of such attitude. It was formed partly because of the Latin craving for stark realism; its tragic stories serve as a consolation for these people whose living conditions are often beggarlike. There is a kind of perverse cheerfulness in the thought that others have to suffer also.

North American optimism is seldom met with among those somber halfSpaniards. Indian blood, freely mixed with the Latin for centuries, probably has something to do with their fatalistic outlook on life. Whatever are the reasons, one is clear: the public below the equator wants tragedies. And the bloodier the better.

This is written partly for the benefit of the film manufacturers; they may some day come to reason and abandon shipping to the far South the "sunny" American dramas. But, aside from this charitable purpose, I strive to remind American readers, actors, and photoplaywriters that the taste of the masses is not standardized the world over. So, in order to gain either world-wide market or world-wide fame, they should season their Extra Sweet Syrup Productions with the bitter spice of pessimism which the public likes immensely-below the equator.

Already it has been praised by John Clair Minot in The Boston Herald, W. Orton Tewson in The Philadelphia Public Ledger, as well as by Mr. Cooper in The New York Herald-flayed by Heywood Broun in The New York World, and by Burton Rascoe in The New York Tribune-both praised and flayed by Katharine Fullerton Gerould in The New York Times, and by Edwin Francis Edgett in The Boston Transcript.

Mr. Cooper is right. The early reviews prove his statement. "This Freedom" will be more widely, more heatedly discussed than "If Winter Comes"-which means that you MUST read it.

As the special correspondent of The Outlook in the Russo-Japanese War; in Cuba, in the Spanish War times; in Martinique after the great volcanic erup2 Nation; and in other countries, Mr. Kennan has done some of the most notable special correspondence work in the history of this journal. He had for a great many years the pleasure of a peculiarly intimate friendship with Alexander Graham Bell. In this article he is perhaps the first to write about Dr. Bell with hardly a mention of the telephone. The article will be found, we are sure, to be the more interesting in that it is per...sonal and reminiscent rather than scientific in its character.

Many articles have been written about conspicuous men whose careers are notable successes by reason of their wealth or professional. positions, but every town has another type-the average successful American who has done his duty to his family and his community and has reached a position of trust and honor in the minds of his neighbors which cannot be measured in the usual terms of success. It is this type of American which will be depicted for the first time in a series to which the three noted writers mentioned above have contributed. To begin
