A CINEMA KING. HIS RISE TO SUCCESS. One of America's very latest mil- | lionaires is Mr. Siegmund Lubin, the film king. How many millions Mr. Lubin possesses no one seems to know. He himself is not sure, but one Miing is certain—every penny of liis huge. fortune has been made out of moving pictures. Twenty years or so ago Mr. Lubin went out to Ameri ca from Germany. He travelled steer age, and had just sufficient money to enable him to land. To-day he owns film "farms" covering hundreds of acres, has famous playwrights of many countries writing scenarios for his film plays, pays some of the fore most actors and actresses in the States colossal salaries to act for him, and turns out annually 70,000,000 feet (over 13,000 miles) of completed films, which are sent all over the world—even into China and the re mote wilds of Siberia. Seated in the hotel lounge the man who travelled steerage told the secret of his roman tic rise to success:— "It can be put in a sentence," he said. "The mov...

FROM VARIOUS SOURCES. [Newspaper Article] — Narracan Shire Advocate — 19 August 1914

FROM VARIOUS SOURCES, i It was at a popular vaudeville per-1 tormance. The celebrated necroman cer and professor of white, black and pink magic was doing wonders on the stage, and suddenly, after picking all | sorts of things out of solid lumps of furniture, he sailed down among the occupants of the' stalls, and began to lift miscellaneous goods and chattels, traps and ware out of their clothes. Presently he fastened on a bashful gentleman of some political eminence, ana pulled a rabbit out of the back of his coat. Not satisfied with his find, he extracted a clutch of chickens from his breast pocket, and pulled two small rabbits and a fowl from his vest. The next dive produced a guinea-pig, and later two white mice and a pigeon were taken from the left leg of the politician's pants. Then the wizard stood up and bowed to the applauding audience. But through the hand-clap ping one roaring voice thundered: "Go on, boss, you haven't finished with him yet. He's got a rat!" That produced ...
