"Oudini week at the Orpheum." That item is enough to fill the house to the doors at every performance and if the noted handcuff wonder gets the houses that he got all last week in Boston the New Orpheum will not be able to hold the large audiences. This man is perhaps one of the world's greatest wonders, and the acts which he will do are nothing more than marvellous. He does things that to all appear to be an uncertainty. His first act will be at 8 o'clock this evening when he will be handcuffed, chained and shackled by anybody in the audience. He will then get out of the chains, etc., in a most simple manner but at the. same time in such a way that it will mystify all. He will give another performance at 9 o'clock when he will repeat the same act. The next entertainment by him will be at 3 o'clock Tuesday afternoon when he will be put in a mail bag which will be locked with one of the famous Corbin locks. This is a big attraction for the theatre and while it was at a big cost to get him here the management are only trying to get the best entertainment available.—Haverhill Gazette, Feb. 10, 1908.
"Oudini." Were you one of the many at the theatre last evening? If you were, you were certainly repaid for going, as all seemed to have a smile, but at the same time a mysterious look as to the way that he got out of the casket. Now, tonight he has some other big feats, and the kind that will j>lease you, make you happy and send you home perplexed. Just take a stroll to the cozy theatre and see him get out of a box. You have seen him do other things, but this is the best one of all. Do you want to assist in putting him in it? Well, you can if you so desire, and then you can make sure he won't get out. Remember, there are only two more nights of the GREAT OUDINI.— Haverhill Gazette, Feb. 14, 1908.
"Oudini!" Has he got you guesssing? Well, you don't know what you are missing if you don't see this man. He is the wonder of the age. It was great to see him get out of the tank last night. And he let some of the fellows in the audience rivet on the lid! That didn't cut any ice. He got out just the same. It took him some time, but he proved that he is there with the goods. And say. Did you see Henry Lemieux last night after "Oudini" got out of his handcuffs? Somebody said that he jumped the town he felt so bad after all the talk he has made about "Oudini" not being able to get out of them. Didn't the audience enjoy it? Well, I guess they did, the way that they applauded him. But tonight is the event of the week. He is going to be put in a casket and the lid is going to be rivited on. Now, you can help if you desire, and then see how you will feel when he comes out and shakes hands with you. Nuf sed.—Haverhill Gazette, Feb. 12, 1908.
"Oudini!" Tell the truth now—don't you think this man is a wonder? He certainly has them all beat. "Bill" Denoncour has got the blues today,—"Oudini" got out of his handcuffs in two minutes last night,—it was a treat for the packed house to be sure. They locked him up in a cell at the police station last night,—They said he never would get out,—It was cell No. 2, one of the best at the station,—He came out and shook hands with the fellows in 26 minutes—what do you know about that? Well, come up tonight and see him get out of the big boiler tank,—He will be riveted in,—You can do the riveting if you desire,—Then wait and see him come out,—that is what counts, and they all leave with the same remark: "He's a wonder." Henry Lemieux says that his handcuffs will halt "Oudini," tonight. Come and see if they do.—Haverhill Gazette, Feb. 12, 1908.
"Oudini." Have you seen him? No? Well, if you haven't, drop around tonight and be prepared for the surprise of your life. Talk about your stunts. He puts John L. in the shade. All the cops in this burg were fooled by the little fellow at the theatre around the corner. He had 'em all guessing. Take her down this evening, but keep this pipe under your lid—"Oudini" has the berries. You should have seen him escaping from the big box last night. Nothing to it. Go on the stage if you want to, you can fix him in—then keep your weather optic peeled— he'll get out. Now, you wise ones, get next; grasp this chance and step in.—Haverhill Gazette, Feb. 15, 1908.
Just gaze upon these features, the most noted man in the world! The great handcuff king, "Oudini," the man who has set the folks of Haverhill talking. The only man who ever got out of a locked cell at the local police station. Come up tonight and see him get out of a casket. No locks in this—it will be screwed in and stamps put over the tops in order to seal them. You can assist if you desire. He has fooled thousands. See if he can fool you. Another surprise for you tomorrow night. Come up and see him get out of a box. You can tie it up in as many knots as you desire. Nevertheless he will get out and you will never even have an idea as to what a wonder he is until you come and see him.—Haverhill Record, Feb. 13, 1908.
"Oudini" the handcuff wonder will be at the theatre all this week. Come and see how easy he gets out of the handcuffs and shackles tonight at 8.30. He will get out of a mail bag at 3.00, 8.00 and 9.00 o'clock tomorrow.—Haverhill Gazette, Feb. 10, 1908.
"Oudini" the man who performed to the biggest crowd in the history of the theatre last night, will get out of a mail bag this evening, after being chained and shackled. He will also get out of a pair of Patrolman Denoncour's handcuffs—Bill says he can't. Come up and see him. Henry Lemieux says that he has a pair he can't get out of—"Oudini" says he will Wednesday night at 8.30. There are all sorts of challenges coming in at the box office— Have you one? If so send it in. Remember the time—3.30 p. m., 8.00 p. m. and 9.00 p. m.—Haverhill Gazette, Feb. 11, 1908.
