Richard Mansfield, Artist and Man.
In the death of Richard Mansfield the
American stage has suffered a distinct
loss. lie was the foremost player of his
day and had hie lived a few years longer
hue miust have been universxally recognized
as the greatest actor in te vorld. le
gracefully wore the mssantle of Booth and
Irving and his Indomitable energy cru-
cified hil to Isis art. It is as the artist
rather than the man that Mansfield will
bel judged by posterity aInd his place in
the teiple of famxe, therefore, is rea-
sonably secure.
Mansfield in no sense had a lovable
personality.   1le   was   so   thoroughly
wrapped tip in his art that hie forgot his
dity to others and Iapsed into a con-
ditioun of chronic misanthropy.    le al-
most totally lacked those traits which all
good iein and wxomxen adiire and which
render the iemiory of those possessing
tixeni, sweet and enduring. Ile was ty-
rxunnicxal, impetuous, overbearing, peev-
ish, often insliting, lie lacked judgment
when art was unconcerned, and only on
-xtreiiely rare occasions did lie realize
that othrs had foolings which lie was
hound to respoct.     It is fortunate per-
haps for   Mlanlsfieli's ilmemiory  that his
thlne artistic sense and noble achievements
liftedx liii fxar abolve lxis feilowvs, tot- in
admxiire genxixus Ii xxixN guxise, sin though
it bi selfish and repellant. Were lie to
be estimated as ordinary men are judgecd
his famxe, except to a few      of his iln-
timates, would be short-liveci indeed.
But art rises to planes which are be-
yonid    attack and Mansfield long had Gc-
l I  l,'  lopi  xxxiii'   if  Ill,,  ixaixiu-u 'i
ilide xilm petulant and h-iolly subimiergeil
lthe good peirsonal qualities lie possessed.
It is the privilege of genius to be ec-
.itric and   aunsxield was all the termi
limplid. 1i1 wxas a poxerlss player, how-
iver, and it is as such that the Aier-
Joan people dixplore his passing as al
irr  'xarile loss, and  will treasure his
imi-mory, even unto the third gencration.

A recent innovation, designed for the advantage of our advertisers, has
been instituted by THE SHOW WORLD. To advertisers desiring attractive
designs and "cuiling' copy, the advantages of this new departure must be
apparent. A practical demonstration may be gained from a glance at the
advertisement of the Chicago Film  Exchange, in the present ;ssue. This
was prepared by the art department of THE SHOW WORLD.
In addition to drawing designs, an innovation that stands alone in the
field of amusement journalism, the advertising department of THE SHOW
WORLD is ready at all times to prepare "ad" copy. It is the endeavor of
this publication to be always in the fore, to employ twentieth century meth-
ods, and take the initiative in all movements advantageous either to our
readers or advertisers.
