A group in front of the old log cabin, characteristic of life in the South. An old granny is spinning cotton with a spinning wheel, an old darky is telling stories to the pickaninnies and "Laughing Ben" stands by to do his part. A very interesting subject.

"Laughing Ben" (1901) as Camera
This is the most amusing character in the "Old Plantation," a negro over eighty years of age, whose one occupation seemed to be laughing. The picture shows just his head and shoulders and "Laughing Ben" is laughing his heartiest. It is a hit wherever shown.

A Cold Water Cure (1900) as Camera
The angry wife has placed a large tub under the bed and is filling it with water, as the scene opens. She covers it with a bedspread to conceal it. Soon her husband comes in much the worse for drink. He throws his hat and coat on a chair, and is about to sit on the bed to take off his shoes, but sits down into the tub of water instead. He gets up soaked, and his wife makes things worse by beating him with a broom.

The Art of "Making Up" (1900) as Camera
Kathryn Osterman, the well-known vaudeville comedienne, in a complete exposition of the methods of "making-up" the face for the stage. She shows the penciling of the eye-brows, blackening the eye lashes, rouging the lips, applying the grease paint and so forth. The work is done in a very dainty and interesting way. Only the head and shoulders of the subject are shown; the figure thus being very large.

The Champion Beer Drinker (1900) as Camera
A laughable scene, made by repeating the action of drinking several glasses of beer, so that it appears as if the champion beer drinker had actually put away 30 glasses in rapid succession. After this seemingly impossible feat, the man turns into a keg of beer.

The Clown and the See-Saw Fairies (1900) as Camera
An unsually interesting trick picture. Two girls are on a see-saw, having a good time, when the clown suddenly removes the support beneath the board. To his surprise the girls keep on see-sawing and the board does not fall, but remains in the air, without any visible means of support.
386.
"A Gone Goose" (1900) as Camera
A photographer is engaged in making a picture of the prize goose for a farmer, who has just come in from the fair. The goose is perched on a table. While the farmer and the photographer have their heads under the cloth a tramp Jew comes in, covers the lens with his hat, and steals the goose. When the farmer discovers the goose is gone, he is furious and wrecks the camera.

Living Pictures (1900) as Camera
This is one of a series of admirable living pictures, posed by competent artists, and faithfully representing well-known art masterpieces. At the opening of each picture, curtains are thrown aside by two pages, the picture remains for a short interval in complete repose, and the curtains are drawn. In other words, these living pictures are shown exactly as in first-class vaudeville theatres, and were prepared with equal care. "Departure for Sabaoth," by B. Monvel. "Psyche at the Wall," by Thurman.

After Dark in Central Park (1900) as Camera
At the opening of this picture, a couple are seen in dim outlines, spooning on a park bench. In comes a policeman, armed with a dark-lantern, which he suddenly flashes on the couple. They cease their love-making, in great confusion, and the policeman walks on, but as soon as he is out of sight, the couple commence billing and cooing again. This picture is particularly interesting because of the photographic effect of the sudden flashing of a dark lantern on the couple. It is very cleverly worked out, and the picture has made a big hit wherever it has been shown.
415.
Alligator Bait (1900) as Camera
This is a decidedly unique and interesting picture. A little colored baby is tied to a post on a tropical shore. A huge 'gator comes out of the water, and is about to devour the little kid, when a hunter appears and shoots the reptile.
416.
Eccentricities of an Adirondack Canoe (1900) as Camera
This scene is laid on the dock of a summer cottage on the Fulton Chain in the Adirondacks. Two young ladies have already embarked in an Adirondack canoe; but the fleshy young man, who is to take them out rowing, makes a misstep, overturning the canoe and throwing the ladies into the water, from which they are rescued with considerable difficulty.
