This fridge magnet pictures an 1890 playbill for a play, Blue Jeans, by Joseph Arthur (1848-1906).  One memorable scene involved an unconscious man on a belt in a sawmill moving ever closer toward a spinning blade! (Pictured in bottom right corner.)  Arthur's knack for devising sensational scenes made him a wealthy man.  At his death, twelve theater troops were on tour performing his plays.
