Some of the newspapers speak of Randion as being a Hindoo conjurer. Such is not the case. Randion is a Hindoo born without arms or lower limbs, and is the latest freak to invade America. It would be a good idea for him to do magic tricks, some that require only the pulling of a string by concealed accomplices. Buchinger, in 1700, a German, also born that way, was advertised largely as a 'sleight of hand man.' -- Harry Houdini, from The Conjurer's Monthly Magazine, Vol. 1, Num 1. September 1906.
