Whitaker , said that the tendency of theater-going , cardplay...

THE STAGE MANAGER [Newspaper Article] — Player — 22 December 1911
THE STAGE MANAGER Hated by the principals , detested by the chorus , sneered at by the ladies , cursed by the men , blamed if the _ production is a failure , never praised if it is a howling success , supposed to know everything and acused of knowing absolutely nothing , yet the STAGE MANAGER keeps on living and I have actually known two or three to have grown fat on this mode of life .

Twilight By Laurence Dunbar [Newspaper Article] — Player — 22 December 1911
Twilight By Laurence Dunbar When the evening shadows falling , Wrap all Nature in repose , And her creatures , daily animate , Drowsilv their eye-lids close ; When the winds that erstwhile boist rous Roamed free o er hill and plain , Now are hushed , and gently whispering , Soft seduce sweet sleep again ; When the leaves somnolent murmur . With its subtle influence , Falls upon the Soul , strife-harassed , Bringing Peace as recompense , Then s the time for those whod woo her To know Nature s lonliest mood , In the solemn contemplation Of her twilight solitude .
