thea THE STAGE DOOR TENDER [Newspaper Article] — Player — 22 December 1911
thea THE STAGE DOOR TENDER He is the one man around a - ter who knows everything about you . You can bulldoze the stage manager , bluff the people in the company , make even the owner of the show think you are wealthy , talented or beautiful , but the grizzled veteran at the back door can see through all of your veneer and know whether you are four-flushing or not . And the reason is that he has been through life and has seen countless thousands just like you . And at his menial station you give him a chance to see your true nature because you do not think it is worth while trying to fool him . And did you ever think that many of the men who take care of your notes , look after your laundry , and perform little services for you , were at one time ambitious professionals , with the same high hopes and aims that you now have ? Well it s a fact .
NEGLECTED PHOTOGRAPHS [Newspaper Article] — Player — 22 December 1911
NEGLECTED PHOTOGRAPHS BY BARRY AND E LLA GRAY . Permit me to refer to the lack of attention displayed by many of our present-day managers , in restoring to the artists their sets of photos , which are sent in for lobby display . Many of the artists spend $$ to furnish the houses with good photos , and the managers should appreciate that fact and return them in as good condition as possible . Recently , while playing a theater in Iowa , we noticed , in the Prop Room , a pile of photos , covered with dust ; many of the packages had never been opened , and the entire lot had been sent in by artists , whose dates , no doubt , had been shifted , and who , perhaps , had written for their photos , sent stamps , and never received them . These photos do no one any good , and represent money to the artist . Personally , we have several sets out , under the same conditions , that we can t get back , although we have written , several times , and sent stamps . We have noticed , in the fronts o...

Lord George Sanger An Appreciation [Newspaper Article] — Player — 22 December 1911
Lord George Sanger An Appreciation By O . H . Kurtz . LONDON , Dec . 2 . —The murder of poor Lord George Sanger , a grand-hearted and picturesque character , perhaps the only man in the world who could claim to have been seventy years a showman , has bitterly wrung all our hearts this week as a deed most black and tragic . Under sheets of white , both Sanger and his assassin have been lying dead in one mortuary , and today a searching inquest starts which will try to discover some motive for the dark and dreadful deed . Mr . Sangers career was remarkable , and proves that the showman s genius may , like that of the painter , writer or inventor , blossom in strange places . His early career is lost in the mists of obscurity , but we know he came of no old circus family like Hengler , Cooke or Adams . The child of plain people with no tent traditions whatever , he was still a born Bohemian , dowered with the showman s gift , and as fish take to water , drifted by native instinct to th...

From Circus to Stage Along a Rocky Road [Newspaper Article] — Player — 22 December 1911
From Circus to Stage Along a Rocky Road By Art Adair . Beginnings in the show business are always at the bottom of the ladder and I started that way . Like a large percentage of my fellow laborers in the show business I received my first lessons in the circus business while I was at school . All the scholars played circus and I vied with the rest of them in turning flips , walking on my hands , etc . Coming of a musical family I practiced at odd moments until I became known as one of the best second-fiddlers in my native town . I also could toot a little on a horn , and my brother and I pursued our musical education , but without any definite ideas as to how we would utilize the same . Then I was taken with a bad cough and our . family doctor advised my parents that an outdoor life might save my life . This was the thing that pushed me into the circus business . • My brother and I got a job with R . M . Weldons Grand Hippodrome and Menagerie , both of us being engaged to play in the...

The following seasons with that show were pleasant ones . Wc organized all sorts of clubs and social organizations . Several incidents of my subsequent tours with that circus stand out prominently . I had been elected treasurer of a fund which was to be spent for fire-works , to be shot off after the performance on the Fourth of July . On that morning I sent two performers down-town with $ 215 to buy fire-works , and late in the afternoon they came back , not with firecrackers , but with a large and juicy load of fire-water . That night I shot off a few bum Roman candles and then took to the woods , to escape the wrath of the subscribers . The following season the different clubs with the show had a series of good times . We had platform dances nearly every night before the train would p...

! The Understudy Speaks 1 By C . P . McDonald • j Night after night upon the stage I In mimic battle hed engage \ i And , crushed and bleeding , lead his men f Into the jaws of death again , I While cheers of victory would ring i Out clear and loud from wing to wing ; j To him the spoils of conquest came , I To him the glory and the name . i And then before the curtain he f Would come with all due modesty . J For kind applause he never lacked—f But they had never seen ME act ! • j Give me the chance to do his turn , &gt; That s all for which I ever yearn ; i I m not conceited when I say j Id send him back to old Broadway ¦ Shorn of his reputation .
