“ On Saturday and Monday evenings a grand performance of wonders and mysteries will be given [at Turner Hall]. Prof. Mantog, the wonder of the world, will swallow nine swords at one time, handle red hot bars of iron with his hands, drink molten lead, dance on red-hot plates, bite red-hot bars of iron, and pass himself through a twelve-inch hoop with a twenty-two inch blade down his throat. A bloodless man will pass knives, needles, and pins through his flesh, and have a 300 pound rock broken on his breast with a sledge. Rhoda, a body-less woman with her head suspended in the air, will be on exhibition. Don't fail to see them; it will be a good show. Admission as usual.” from Covington's Daily Commonwealth, September 16, 1882
