New Invention May Revolutionize
Moving Picture Business.
Demonstration Recently Made In Lon
don Seems to Prove That Long-Sought-For
Machine Has Made
Last week there was demonstrated
In London a new projector which will
In all probability revolutionize certain
departments of the moving picture
trade. The Vanascope, which 1b the
name of the new machine, is so con
structed that the continual flicker,
often so tiresome, is entirely eliminat
ed. The machine has no shutter, and
each picture, by means of rotary and
oscillating mirrors, Is allowed to fade
into the next, there being no mask
line. Another advantage claimed for
the new invention is that where an or
dinary projector throws upon the
screen a minimum of 16 pictures a sec
ond, the Vanascope only projects four.
By this means only 300 feet of film
Is required to do the work that now
requires a thousand, thus making the
cost of production considerably less.
The cost of lighting will also be con
siderably reduced, a saving of 25 per
cent amperage being possible. In
America orders for Vanascopes are
pouring In thick and fast, and so high
ly do the critics on thU side think of
it that it 1b expected that the machine
will shortly be installed in all the prin
cipal theaters In Great Britain and on
Epigrams of Veteran Player.
Thomas Santschl says that he has
been greatly helped in his career as a
picture actor by the wise advice of his
friend the late Kyrle Bellew. Some of
the beloved player's epigrams are as
"Affectation ie the chain that binds
the average actor to mediocrity."
"Stage tricks ' are fascinating
weapons with which to fight for public
approval, but they are boomerangs
rather than sure shot rifles."
"An actor of inferior native talent
will triumph over his clever colleagues
if he develops with more regard for art
"Never should an actor convey to
an audience the suggestion that he is
either looking at himself or listening
to his own voice with fondest apprecia
tion." "The actor should carefully discrim
inate between two attitudes conceit
and dignity the one is destructive,
the other constructive."
It would be an easy matter to name
some screen actors who would do well
to ponder the last two of these Bay
ings. Mountaineer Life In Films.
Another "Mary Pickford play" has
been released. "The Eagle'B Mate" Is

these primitive surroundings Ane
mone Breckenridge, a gentle, refined
young girl, accustomed to all that
wealth and culture can bestow, who
has been kidnaped by one of the
mountaineers, Is suddenly confronted
with life In its most brutal and sav
age form. At first she is appalled and
disgusted as she sees the souls of
men and women without the veneer
which comes from the influence of
civilization, but before long her ad
miration 1b won by the underlying
courage and heroism of the people
around her, and in time she struggles
with herself to adopt their standards

In Almost All Instance the One Who

Emphatically Claims to Bs
"Housekeeping develops the humor
ous Bide of married life to an extent
unguessed at by those who merely
board. In a boarding house or hotel
neither the husband nor the wife has
a chance to assert that the other Is
absolute master or mistress of the
joint establishment. What is It, by
the way, which makes humanity so
anxious to prove Itself badly off? The
contention for supremacy In suffer
ing always seen between two persons
who are , comparing woes or griev

" 'If ever there was a man who was
master of hiB own house, It is my hus

his own declaration of his position he
Is no whit behind the very chlefest
" 'My wife is the, cock of the walk

women who dominate are almost al

down-trodden and imposed upon. The
story of the man who was chased

under the four-post bed Illuminates

"One dares think after this that the
man who had been brought into such
subjection that he habitually spoke
of 'our hat' was probably a veritable
domestic tyrant and was clever
enough never to let his wife find it
"Although there Is a theory that
men have more sense of humor than
women, this may be questioned when
household conditions are considered.
Does a man laugh at his own discom
fiture as a woman does? How would
a man take the pleading of his wife
for something 'like father used to
make?' She has never tried it, but
his longing has become a byword.
What joy to the wife when he is hoist
by his own petard!

London Auto Accidents Few.
"Skillful motor driving is one of the

few, while in Chicago they are many.
This Is because of the stringent re

London and the absence of such re

"But," contended Mrs. Swastlck, "it

It is how she will look to the rest
of the people at the ball. But If a
