Figure Internationally-famous theater star Has headlined every principal theater in the English-speaking world A lecture demonstration that is as entertaining as it is amazing An outstanding platform attraction HARRY KAHNE The Incomparable Mentalist REDPATH HARRY KAHNE America's Supreme Mentalist in an Amazing Lecture-Demonstration HARRY KAHNE, whose remarkable mental abilities have astonished and puzzled psychologists everywhere, has been a headline attraction in every principal theater in the English speaking world. Ripley has featured a dozen or more of Kahne's demonstrations in his Believe It Or Not cartoons. Kahne is truly a man with a multiple mind. Kahne also has shown much ability as a motion picture producer. Kahne a Mental Giant and a Great Showman Redpath is glad to announce that HARRY KAHNE is to give his entire time to the lecture platform, presenting a great mental lecture-demonstration, using many blackboards. As a matter of fact, Mr. Kahne carries a big trailer of paraphernalia with him and requires an assistant to put on his lecture-demonstration. Mr. Kahne, in addition to his remarkable mental ability, possesses keen wit and a most pleasing personality, all of which help to make his program stand out as something very extraordinary. He does not depend on trickery to do his mental demonstrations. He just does them and seemingly accomplishes the impossible with all the assurance of a country school teacher doing a sum for a primary class. Does Six Things at One Time How many different things can the average person do at once? Caesar could do three. Mentalists have tried to do four. Harry Kahne is doing six and more. His lecture program will include many difficult and unusual demonstrations in concentration that will hold any audience spell-bound. A Few of the 1001 Raves from Kahne's Scrap Book Washington Herald Harry Kahne is History's greatest mentalist. Chicago Tribune Harry Kahne reminds you of that famous saying, What Wonders God Hath Wrought. Kansas City Times If Kahne lives long enough he will create a worldwide reputation for himself. Portland Telegram A miracle act is that presented by Harry Kahne. L. A. Examiner He makes the Yogis appear like numbskulls. Denver Express He surpasses all others so as to leave them absolutely out of the running. Providence News Harry Kahne, who has amazed audiences in all parts of the United States, Canada and Europe, is a modest person, but admits that even as a child he was considered to have an abnormal mentality. His accomplishments in so-called triple concentration have given Ripley more than a dozen ideas for his Believe It or Not cartoons. The Sydney Morning Herald — Australia Is there any limit to the human mind? Really Mr. Kahne has to be followed in his demonstrations on the stage to get a full appreciation of his powers—mysterious and marvelous. N. Y. Daily News Ninety-six Percent. NOTE—At that time the highest percentage given any act. The London Daily Chronicle The correct way to describe Mr. Harry Kahne, an American who has the uncanny faculty of doing a half dozen things at once, and doing them well is—The Man with Six Brains. Cleveland News Take all the other mentalists you have seen, multiply them by ten and you have something approaching Harry Kahne. Birmingham News Harry Kahne demonstrates and proves that he possesses the greatest brain of all times. Editorial—Oregon Journal, Portland Exercising no fewer than six mental processes at the same time, is the extraordinary exploit of Harry Kahne. The test is performed in full view of the audience and under conditions that leave absolutely no room for doubt. It is a case of one mind carrying on contemperaneously work that ordinarily six minds would perform, and in some instances, excel keen minds at that. He talks to his audience, answering difficult questions and giving off keen repartee while reading a newspaper and writing upside down on a blackboard, carrying on difficult arithmetic calculations and doing other mental stunts—the whole presenting a marvelous mental performance. The wonder is whether he is an isolated development or the forerunner of a mental system of which many people will become votaries, and in which the mind will advance to greater heights of development. If this one mind has schooled itself to do the work of six, are there not other fields of mental achievement that may yet startle the world? Printed in U. S. A.
