THE ART OF ACTING. ; ?« 1 » HSk IS IT DECLINING? V J Just how far the stage is universal and, on the other hand, how far the expression of human emotion and pas Bion is conditioned by race-training and national life, is discussed by the fam ous Italian actor, Tommaso Salvini, In a long, analytical article which appears in a recent number of the "Suddeutsche Monatshrifte" (Munich). No matter how highly educated an audience may be, says Slgnor Salvlnl, it will "only with difficulty be seized in its Inner most heart by a passlorf foreign to Its mode of living." FRENCH, GERMAN, AND ENGLISH ACTORS; In general, according to Slgnor Sal vini, French actors are true In the art of acting "only within a certain sphere; If that sphere is overstepped-I.e., if a certain passion becomes dramatic, seri ous, and violent-they assume a decla matory manner which we Italians con sider as being In bad taste." "Of course, I concede exceptions. As far as we are concerned, We are, while in general not espec...
