Many Ways to Break Your Neck That Performers Have Devised [Newspaper Article] — Player — 22 December 1911
Many Ways to Break Your Neck That Performers Have Devised W HERE are the thrillers of yesterday ? Has . the business of inventing cunning ways to break ones neck played out ? The question is suggested by the noticeable change which has come over the amusement business in America , particularly in the circus branch , within the past few seasons . If one will recall , each new circus season used to bring some new sensational feature—some feature which was intended to thrill an audience , to make the heart of each individual member of it stop for an instant from terror and the fear of a serious accident to the performer who had elected to flirt with death for the doubtful pleasure of the public . The past few seasons in the United States have been notable in that no new thrillers , as they are commonly called , have been offered . It will also be recalled that in the old days the majority of these sensational exhibitions were the invention of Europeans . As a consequence , one is const...

THE PLAYER S SECOND BIRTHDAY By WALTER K . HILL I &lt; B The Player was first issued on Dec . 10 , 1909 . &lt; I For the purpose of combining the Christmas spirit with the Anniversary feature , the publication date of the commemorative edition was this year fixed as Dec . 22 . &lt; B The paper in your hands represents the careful product of skillful newspaper writers , professional friends and well wishers who have either been asked to contribute or have submitted their favors voluntarily . &lt; R There has been no attempt made to produce more than a neatly compiled , carefully edited and generally interesting publication .

Many Ways to Break Your Neck [Newspaper Article] — Player — 22 December 1911
Many Ways to Break Your Neck ( . Continued from page 19 . ) A feat , performed by the cyclist Marok , might be called looping without a loop . The track resembles the first section used by the human arrow , but the upward curve is longer and forms an arc of a circle . At the foot of the incline and the commencement of the curve the bicycle is caught b y a wire suspended from the center of this circle . The machine , therefore , after traversing the curved path , describes the remainder of the circle in the air . Meanwhile the curved path is replaced by a level one terminating in an ascent , which receives and stops the cyclist when he returns to earth and casts off the wire . In another ingenious and terrifying variation of the human arrow , the bicycle is replaced by a four-wheeled car , which is stopped abruptly by a buffer at the end of the upward curve , while the rider is hurled through space to a trapeze some distance away , and SO feet higher . Failure to catch the trapeze me...
Music in Medicine [Newspaper Article] — Player — 22 December 1911
Music in Medicine By Dr . Max Thorek [ Ed . Note . —Dr . Max Thorek is the official W . R . A . U . and A . A . A . physician in Chicago and enjoys an acquaintance among theatrical people which is second to scarcely any other physician in the United States . He is President and Surgeon-in-Chief of the American hospital and a consultant at the Cook County Hospital , Chicago , and in addition has held other offices which have recognized his standing in the profession of medicine and surgery . ] , IN ancient times the disciples of Aesculapius endeavored to effect cures to a great extent by herbs , incantations , obscure methods of empiricism and the like . In the mediaeval period , the leech , the cupping glass , plasters and mercurialization were the favorite methods resorted to . In this modern age , these crude methods have been displaced with accurate scientific observations , modern methods of diagnosis , and the great undreamed of progress in the fields of both medicine and surge...

The Psychology of Song Boosting [Newspaper Article] — Player — 22 December 1911
The Psychology of Song Boosting By BEN BORNSTEIN General Professional Manager for the Harry Von Tiber Music Publishing Co . TO HAVE the greatest songs in the world and to convince vocalists that you have such songs are two separate and not at all analogous propositions . Your songs may be better than are the other fellows , but it s up to you to make the singer believe it . There Ben Bomstein never was a professional song booster who , if he were at all conscientious , did not believe in the manifest superiority of the wares he had for popularization . And , by the same token , he has not the least hesitancy in ¦ telling his auditor so . That is the greatest asset a professional manager can acquire—absolute and non-com-batable confidence in the publications on which he is instructed to work . A professional manager must be an analyzer—if I may so express myself —of humanity . He must know , the next minute after he has introduced himself to a singing performer , the temperament of t...
The Benefits of Music in Medicine ( continued from page 24 ) [Newspaper Article] — Player — 22 December 1911
The Benefits of Music in Medicine ( continued from page 24 ) upon animals at Lincoln park of that city , has made extensive experiments along that line . Different kinds of music were played by him on a violin in the front of the cages of various animals . He carefully noted the effects with the following results : Soft music seemed to have a pacifying and soothing effect upon birds and quadrupeds ; rough , discordant intonations , on the other hand , evidently exercised the opposite effect , the animals displayed restlessness and nervous agitation . Spirited airs had an exhilarating influence and increased the nervous stimulation in a very decided manner . It is interesting to note his striking experience with the jaguar . Classic music did not at all appeal to his sense of taste . While this was played he would become furious and leaped from side to side of his cage and snapped his teeth and uttering sounds of malcontentment , and forcibly lashed his tail . However , as soon as th...
A Few Moments with Buffalo Bill [Newspaper Article] — Player — 22 December 1911
A Few Moments with Buffalo Bill By c . p . MCDONALD ABOUT two months ago—on November 1 to be exact—at Richmond , Va . ^ Col . William F . Cody , or Colonel Cody , or , better still , Buffalo Bill , whom all the world knows and loves , retired , for perhaps the dozenth time , from public life . But this time the Colonel is genuinely emphatic in his declaration that never again will he shoot glass and mud balls and chase the painted redskin in mimic warfare in a tented arena . Why does the Colonel take this step and deprive the present generation of old and young hero worshipers of at least one last sight of his sturdy figure upon his beautiful charger ? Ah , it isnt age , be sure of that ; for although the years have rolled on in their merciless grind , they have been good to the Colonel , and today he is younger than he was way back there in the 60 s when he earned his sobriquet by killing , in less than eighteen months , 4 , 280 bison , thus furnishing meat to the laborers who were...
