A novelty at picture entertainments will be introduced at His Majesty's tonight and Saturday night, in the person of Reggiardo, the Australian "Cinquevalli." It is explained that this is not a picture, but the man ohimse-lf, who will introduce most of the juggling feats of the world's great master. The London "Era" of January 12 says: "The strange and startling entertainment furnished by Reggiardo is watched with a mixture of astonishment and apprehension, yet it is evident from the ease with which this accomplished juggler performs his work that 'his achievements cause him no physical inconvenience, still less injury. When the watch is heard ticking in this gentleman's interor, and the electrc light glows inside his chest._ the climax of this extraordinary exhibition is complete and the' plaudits are lonp and enthusiastic." The ancient art of sword-swallowing is practised by the juggler, who offers a reward of £100 to any person discovering the secret swim's that cause the swords to double up. These swords will be handed round" for examination.
