A representative of the firm who made it stood up in the auditorium and assured the public that it was of the same strength as that of the chain made for Samson. This feat. I placed the chain on my arm and broke it.

Such a performance. Samson next took a wire cable. The thing is little more than a trick. With one hand I lifted it up. After that feat I took another dumbbell. The dumbbell. I was prepared for the emergency. Samson at first refused to be satisfied that it would be a fair test. By the third item in the display it seemed that Samson desired to leave the issue of the challenge in doubt.

Samson was still dissatisfied. The reader will probably ask if special means were adopted during this and succeeding engagements to maintain my strength. It was stated that Samson had taken his money away. I spent three months at the Alhambra and three months in the provinces. The crowd cheered us all the way to my rooms in Leicester Square.

The reply was that it should be paid in the morning. The answer is very simple: The performance itself provides the necessary amount of daily training. I don't call this fair play at all. I only practice. Fleming asked for the one thousand pounds.

I find that the best time for a performance is about three hours after a meal. I eat. When we left the Aquarium after the contest the great crowd followed us cheering.

I told him that if he liked to accept an engagement with me I would give him twenty marks a day.

When he As for his own fist. So large were his boots that not only could I get both my feet into one. His head as huge and grotesque as that of any pantomime mask. Driving out one day at Aachen I met a veritable giant.

I asked him what wages he was earning.

Quite the contrary. It appeared that he was given nearly double the pay of an ordinary labourer because he could lift heavier weights and load the carts more quickly. A German mark. A little more than six feet. At the end of my first engagement in London and the provinces I went to Germany for a holiday.

So huge and extraordinary was his appearance that my horse positively shied at him. He was bony and muscular. His chest measurement was about eighty inches and his weight lbs. He was not a fat man in proportion to his size. The thought occurred to me as soon as I saw him that to give him a part in a performance as a modern Goliath would be. The giant quarryman could scarcely credit such good fortune. He was a quarryman.

And yet. The huge size of Goliath. For seven or eight weeks I tried to train him. There was. During this part I at once climbed to the top.

I had an engagement at that time at the Royal Music Hall. It was impossible to think of taking a cab. It was now the turn of the giant to show alarm. We wrestled together. It would have been clearly unwise to let him go into the streets. He had never put himself into training. A giant.. Thousands of people followed us the whole way. He is a rare creature.

In a moment or so I returned with the clubs. Well do I remember our arrival at Charing Cross. I lifted him. What became of him after he left me I never heard. The last report was that he had carried off his own landlady. Wishing to play again. We were continually playing at each other's houses. When the game was finished we ordered two steaks. The incident which followed our meeting will be better explained by prefacing the story with the statement that as boys we were great billiard players.

My friend's father was at this time German ambassador at Paris. So we went to a room which he selected. As our right to continue was disputed the attendant was called. At any rate they made unfriendly remarks. After my engagement at the Royal came a holiday in Paris.

As a matter of fact I was not in practice. So we played on. He did not know then that I had made my strength a profession. I suppose we unconsciously annoyed a party of Frenchmen. We were still laughing over old times when one of the party came up.

It was there I met a very dear school friend. I picked him up. My appearance must have been deplorable. The force. Nor would hot words suffice him. The blood streamed down my clothes.

Whatever may have been in his mind the facts are plain: Finding that I took one blow calmly he struck me another and called me coward. I lost my patience with the man.

Walking slowly towards him. It was added that I did not wish to interfere with him. Beneath this fresh insult I tried to remain quite calm. My friend. But at such times.

It was evident that he wished to pick a quarrel. Vowing that he mast give me something to remember him by. Being sincerely sorry for the injury I had caused. Some of the friends of the man who was hurt accompanied us and explained to the authorities that the regrettable affair was not my fault.

You can imagine. You do not really recall my identity. The party invited me to take wine with them. He was still unconscious. I left Paris to return to London to fulfil an engagement at the Tivoli. When we reached the hotel.

In the midst of this scene I sat down with my friend and smoked a cigar. I daresay. A gendarme was fetched. Meanwhile they took their injured comrade to the hospital.

You must have some assistance. The table broke through. As soon as he recovered. I called at the hospital and asked to see him. They were sorry at what had happened.

He entered the room and wanted to arrest me. When I went up I seemed to recognise the face of the person who wished to see me. The proprietor caught hold of him. One night whilst I was performing there.

Of all my friends I have the reputation of being the strongest. Sandow I would never have struck you that blow in Paris. I was determined to come to London to see you. I saw the whole programme at the Tivoli to-night. He Having read of your performances in the French and English papers. It had to be confessed that he was right.

When you stepped on to the stage I nearly dropped to the ground. I am an amateur in your own line. I have come from Paris. Today we are the greatest friends. Tears stood in his eyes. I placed in each ball a man. These performances I repeated in the provinces. After putting them down the balls opened and the men rolled out. Each hall in London could boast of at least one. Taking a long bar with a large ball at each end. I lifted and supported on my chest a grand pianoforte with an orchestra of eight performers on top of the instrument.

Who can fail deeply to be impressed by the grandeur and magnificence When I lifted my heaviest bell.

This performance I accomplished in order to equal the feat of lifting lbs. About this time there were many strong men. This was followed by a display with human dumb-bells. For my part I was determined to introduce a novelty. It was also a great weight lifting period. I started. By the time I had practised sufficiently to raise the weights I was lifting from lbs.

During this tour I had the pleasure of visiting not only many of the chief cities of England.. There was still a fourth feat which I performed. No city that I have ever visited is more beautiful than Edinburgh.

Here I introduced another novelty. It has not yet been my good fortune to visit Ireland. At the end of my first provincial tour I returned to London to fulfil an engagement at the Palace Theatre. Certainly I was not proof against it. Included in this performance was the feat in which a Horse Guardsman and his horse rode over me.

These animals stood on a plank. In place of the orchestra I held three horses on my chest. The result of my system and supervision was that his strength grew marvellously. Within the year. I suppose. We sailed on the Elbe. There was a good deal of bustle in getting on board. The portrait which is published on an earlier page will speak for itself when you remember that a year before it was taken the sitter was a gaunt. Let us revert for a moment to our departure from England. An old friend and famous pianist.

Agreeing to come. We come now to the year of the Chicago Exhibition. He had no power of endurance. Sieveking was a brilliant artist. Martinus Sieveking. But this is anticipating. Then they sent back the pilot. But my advice was apparently impracticable. From the engineer's boat they called to him to come on. For the last time the pilot left the ship. This letter touched me very deeply.

By the faint glimmer of a lantern he pencilled a note which he asked might be sent. Having commented on the strange fulfilment of my prediction. Some time after that.

Eugen Sandow: Part 4 – Sandow’s Exercise Routine

Somehow I used to feel that the ship we were on was a doomed vessel. I became so friendly with the engineer. With the captain and the first engineer I became very friendly. I am not ordinarily superstitious. He wrote me a letter telling me of the tidings. Hoping to be generous I proffered the driver an equivalent in English money to two shillings. You shall hear mine. He knew better than I. I could not argue with the man. You can only draw a long breath — and admire it. Although the day we reached New York was the hottest that had ever been known in that great country of wonderful records.

The independence of the American cab-driver is sublime. I entered a cab. First experiences are occasionally curious. Having landed. To my surprise he said. And along I went. Numerous people. The particular journey which I was undertaking would have been in England something considerably less than a shilling fare.

At the office his attention was called away for a moment. It is something too great for words. I swung him over the sixteenth floor staircase. If you don't promptly clear oft' I will report you! And there for a few moments I held him. This action seemed a little impudent. I said to him sharply. By Jove. Instead of taking himself off he squared up and wanted to fight me. I also asked the boy if he would clean my boots. I may be a stranger in this country and ignorant of some of its ways.

This was really too much for white flesh and blood to bear. Having selected my apartments. So I just took hold of that boy. Remarking that I desired to wash. I assured him that he was quite safe in my hand so long as it was closed.

Want to add to the discussion?

The boy's cries drew a small crowd. And I reminded him that a drop through sixteen floors would not be good even for nigger boys who smoked cigarettes in private rooms and affected to be indignant at the suggestion that they should clean a visitor's boots.

The manager fully agreed with the warning I gave the boy. My word. From New York I went to Boston.

I am bound to confess that these drinks are exceedingly nice. A fortnight after my arrival in New York I commenced an engagement at the Casino. The only fault that is to be found with them is the too generous length to which their hospitality is liable to go in the direction of cocktails. I at last yielded to their persuasions. I gave lectures on anatomy and my system of physical culture in my dressing-room. They are simply marvellous creatures. I liked immensely.

They like to give you a bath of cock-tails. These lectures were attended by many of the most notable people in America.

Another striking feature of life in America is to be found in the trotting horses. They are wonderfully nice fellows. For a moderate drinker like myself. As my engagement lengthened I grew constantly more acquainted with American people. I demonstrated how each feat was accomplished. A tall slim fellow made his appearance in answer to the inquiry. Ziegfeld suggested that I should drive round in one of the hand wagons. Who of all people in the world should come to push me round but an unfortunate hunchback.

When I arrived at Chicago I went to the Trocadero. Ziegfeld's son. He showed me round the theatre. For whilst I was not sure whether he really was the manager. I ascertained that he was Mr. Ziegfeld had taken it because his other theatre.

The result was that next morning the papers came out with It had been originally an armoury. At last. At the time of my arrival it was proving too big. In the exhibition grounds one morning shortly after my arrival. Sieveking always accompanying me.

In answer to my manager's announcement from the stage that we were ready for him. With these words he rushed out of the building. Throughout this tour I offered at each performance ten thousand dollars to any person who could duplicate my feats of strength or even do anything that could be said reasonably to approach them.

In order further to encourage his drooping spirits my manager offered him the ten thousand dollars if he would lift the weight over his head with both hands. Ziegfeld proposed that I should prolong my tour. Accepting his suggestion. His friends. The youth who was prepared to meet me. We then reduced the conditions still further.

At St. His friends now chaffed and now rallied him. When the time came for him to take up the challenge. I was informed. But still he did not like to attempt the task he had before rashly undertaken. I would consent to give him the money. As there is no law to prevent cruelty to men. Perhaps the greatest. I was fully prepared to meet him as he was. A tremendous tent. The thought occurred to me that I should take the bear's place and measure my strength against the king of the forest's.

One day he advertised a fight to the death between a lion and a bear. This lion. Thousands and thousands of persons had bought tickets. I have met many lions in various places. I was performing in that western city at the time of the midwinter fair. Only a week before he made a meal of his keeper. Of course there is always between the unarmed man and the beast this disadvantage. In connection with this fair Colonel Bone was exhibiting a great menagerie. It is the story of my lion fight in San Francisco.

If I desired to meet the beast the only way was to fight him as I would box a man. The announcement sent a thrill through the cities for hundreds of miles around. I had no fear. A great cage. The lion. I caught him round Even with these precautions I was advised not to proceed with the contest.

It took several men with lassos and chains some hours to perform this operation. There is no doubt that Mr. Having read a good deal of the methods of the lion I was not unprepared for this form of attack. Ziegfeld and the small company felt the position acutely.

Turning quickly before he had time fully to recover. I entered the cage. The engagement was accordingly made. I was only anxious for the contest to begin.

As he made his last strain for a tremendous leap I stepped sharply to the side and he missed his mark. Few people were present. I decided to rehearse my fight with the lion beforehand. I flung him off me. But I had got him as in a vice.

Throwing up my arms I gripped his head. I lifted him as high as my shoulder. Thus outdone at his first attempt. By this means. He sprang right on my back. Rushing fiercely towards me he raised his huge paw to strike a heavy blow at my head. Moving away from the lion I stood with my back towards him. Colonel Bone and my manager shouting to me to come out of the cage.

Luckily I dodged my head just in time and got a good grip round the lion's body.

When the hour for the fight came the huge tent which held twenty thousand people was literally packed in every part. Now came the tussle. I was determined. I had not to wait many moments. Choosing an opportune moment. I really thought that Colonel Bone's remark that he would knock my head off would prove true. Colonel Bone rushed into the cage.

For the moment. Through the whole of that vast assembly ran a thrill of great excitement. Whilst we both remained motionless. He knew that I was his master and he refused to fight. Feeling that the audience would be sadly disappointed 1 tried to goad him on.

Most beasts are cowards at heart. Colonel Bone came np and pulled out his revolver. The keepers tried again to mitten him. But the moment the lion saw my eyes fixed fearlessly and firmly on him he seemed paralysed.

But no sooner did I enter the cage than the animal cowered down. He was clearly conquered. At last I caught hold of his tail and twisted it. I was afraid that my audience would be disappointed with the comparative tameness of tlie proceedings. The people shrieked. Though I lifted him up and walked round the arena with him on my shoulders he remained as firm as a rock and as quiet as a lamb.

This was the only thing that moved him. Then came the scene in the arena. As he made a bound towards me I dodged. Click for the India Section India. Life is Movement - site edition by Eugen Sandow.
