Louis Kohn, chairman executive com
mittee. A PUBLIC PERFORMANCE.
Feat of Mind
Carnaveaux. the mind reader, who
travels with Pauline, the hypnotist,
who begins an engagement at Har
per's theatre tonight, gave a public
exhibition today just before noon,
driving while blindfolded a carriage
over a route designated by a commit
tee, locating a key to a postotuee vox
that had been placed in the Palace
cigar store and going to the postoffice,
picking out and opening a vox, getting
a letter and delivering it to The Argus
office, in accordance with the address
on the envelope.
Without commenting on tne merits
or demerits of tbe feat, at which many
doubtless look pessimistically, it was
indeed a neat, novel and exciting per
formance. The committee that ac
companied Carnaveaux was composed
of Dr. J. De Silva. City Attorney J.
K. Scott, Ed Kreis, S. S. Hull and
representatives of the press. The
committee agreed on a route from the
theatre up Second to Twentieth, south
to Third, west to Seventeenth, north
to Second, ea9t to the I'alace cigar
store, west to the postoflice and
east to The Augls onice. vr.
De Silva and Mr. Scott sat in
tbe sat with the mind reader,
who stood up and drove the horses
wildly through the streets. Around
his head he had strapped a band with
a nickel-plate attachment that pressed
to his temples. Leading from this
band was a wire with two hand-holds,
which were held by the gentlemen on
tbe seat with Carnaveaux. In this
way he was guided. He did not make
a single mistake. He turned on
Nineteenth street because those on
the seat with him saw that there
would be a collision if Second avenue
was followed further. "Without say
ing a word they agreed on Nineteenth
street and Carnaveaux went that way.
He collided with Fay Harper's rie in
front of McCabe's store, wrenching
the axle, knocking down the horse
and scratching the body of the car
riage he was driving.
Dr. De Silva pronounced it a won
derfurperformance. Carnaveaux was
almost exhausted. He said it was
a great mental strain. He only gives
one exhibition a week.
