STARTLING DRAMA IN REAL LIFE IN A CHICAGO PICTURE THEATER [Newspaper Article] — Player — 15 December 1911
STARTLING DRAMA IN REAL LIFE IN A CHICAGO PICTURE THEATER CHICAGO , Dec 12 . —The patrons of the Lyric theater , a small community moving picture house located at West Madison street and Harlem avenue , were treated to a bit of drama last Thursday night so realistic that none of them cared to applaud . The Lyric is owned and operated by Charles O . Harding , a theatrical agent , with offices at 118 North La Salle street . Mrs . Harding acts in the capacity of ticket agent . She had issued pasteboard to an audience which filled the house to capacity . This audience , congenial and good-humored at first , grew restless as the minutes ticked on and no pictures were thrown on the curtain . For almost half an hour they waited patiently , and then some one , with a catcall , gave the signal for loud protestation on the part of everybody . The single usher employed in the theater vainly tried to pacify them by explaining that the films had not yet arrived , but that Harding was then on his...
CLIMBER SUES PARK [Newspaper Article] — Player — 15 December 1911
CLIMBER SUES PARK BUFFALO , N . Y ., Dec . 11 . —Last week Lionel Legare , who does a spiral ascension act , secured a verdict against the Buffalo &amp; Fort Erie Excursion Co . for $ 31 . 25 . Legare had been engaged during the season of 1910 to do an ascension , in a sealed globe , up a tower . The company contended that the paper of the athlete showed that he went up a tower over eighty feet high while in reality he only went up about thirty feet . It was shown , however , that the actual distance traversed was over 80 feet although the tower was only up in _ the air thirty feet . The verdict was given against the company because they allowed the ascensionist to give one performance without objecting .

wonder of the world on retreating from a cold audience could drop a shilling down the crack and hear mechanical buffers thundering sweet applause from the region of the frescoed gods , taking bows as long as his shillings lasted . The amusement writer , William Gray , a former press agent and thoroughly posted man , puts in print this week a small item which will interest American ring folk , being literally true as applied to some tent shows this way . Here it is : Circuses generally travel by road , and all the performers are called upon to help in the erection and dismantling of the show . The Slum Angel , the Hicks-Terriss pro ? duction at the Coliseum this week , shows a London hard luck hole , with children in rags and tags , and Miss Terriss as the high bred lady who gives them an . airing and outing , while a Hicksian eccentric peer so admires her goodness that he marries her . Ere this curtain fall culmination , much comedy is worked in . Oscar Hammerstein s great unknowns ...
