Some of them are working for art s sake—more of them are working for bread and meat s sake . In many a home each night a mother , a wife , a sister , watch the dying embers , wondering whether the fantasies of fate are getting it over for their loved ones .

More than one hundred millions of dollars is in vested in the United States of America in theatrical enterprises .

vn Little Press Agent —But Be a Real Press Agent A recent issue of Collier s has a most interesting article on the press agent . The writer calls attention to the fact that the practice of procuring free publicity in the newspapers , originated by the good-natured class of amusement men who delight to have themselves called liars , has spread to all walks of life .
