American Amusement Enter -prise in Far Distant Countries [Newspaper Article] — Player — 22 December 1911
American Amusement Enterprise in Far Distant Countries Vic Hugo , Who Pulls Long Wires from Cedar Rapids , la ., Talks of Foreign Tours Six years ago Vic Hugo was the chief orator of the side-show annex to the Barnum &amp; Bailey show , with but little idea of ever reaching the high position he now holds . He had taken care of the money he made and when an opportunity arrived to make a good investment he did so in the city of Cedar Rapids , Iowa , where he opened a vaudeville theater .

STOPS PANIC QUICKLY [Newspaper Article] — Player — 22 December 1911
STOPS PANIC QUICKLY Manager George A . McDermott , of Keith s Union Square theater , assisted by Herbert Keise , a black face monologue artist , stopped a panic in that house on Sunday night , Dec . 17 . While a reel of pictures were being shown and the house was in total darkness Mr . McDermott noticed a thin wreath of smoke coming through the floor . He at once ordered all house lights to be turned on and that the actor should go on the stage . This was done and as the audience saw the smoke curling upwards , they became restive . A short speech by the manager in which he asked the audience to quietly disperse , followed by Mr . Keise breaking into a monologue , prevented any excitement . In fact most of the audience remained seated . The fire , which was in one of the dressing rooms , was quickly extinguished by the department . The loss will not amount to $ 300 .

IN LONDON TOWN [Newspaper Article] — Player — 22 December 1911
IN LONDON TOWN By O . H . KURTZ , 50 Walcot Square , London , S . E . The Empire is spending $ 15 , 000 on important stage improvements , the chief innovation being three stage bridges like those at Drury Lane , by which solid sets of scenery can be raised and lowered at will . The present lighting system , though fine , will be strengthened very materially . The direction informs me that Mr . Pelissicr , though doing eight shows a week at the Apollo , nevertheless spends several hours a day rehearsing his latest good things for the Empire Christmas season . The main burlesque skit is The Palodiceum , a take-off on music hall ways and eccentricities . There will be a funny sketch in broken French to thrust in good-natured way at the Bernhardt and Rejane engagements . Ventriloquism will get it , with apologies to Mr . Arthur Prince . There will also be wild animal turns , untamed beasts of the jungle , as well as trained seals , with Pelissier s crowd playing the barking and juggling...

AN OLD STORY PROVEN [Newspaper Article] — Player — 22 December 1911
AN OLD STORY PROVEN The old story that none of us are so mighty and strong that we cannot be worried and frightened by something small has been forcibly illustrated in New York this week . For many weeks Jewel , an elephant in _ Central Park has been showing her vicious temper . She attempted to kill a keeper and Bill Snyder , the head elephant man , had placed her in chains to try and subdue her rage . This only made her worse and for days none could go near the pen where she was confined . One morning when Mr . Snyder went to look at the huge beast he found her with her big body almost flattened against the bars and quivering with excitement . She showed by her eyes that she was frightened . Glancing at the floor he was surprised to see two small mice , eating a piece of bread and the reason for the fright of the elephant was apparent . Although the elephant had but to make one movement , or give one snort , to send the small animals scampering she was too frightened to move . It ...
