This magician's stage name might be a play on the name of Harry Bouton (Blackstone) who came into prominence circa 1918, although the illusions advertised on this poster do not approach Blackstone's. A few of the B&H tricks: Sword Swallower; Rising and Falling Ball; The Spirit Dove Box; The Hindoo Clock Dial; The Chinese Linking Rings; Mysto Mind-reading; etc.
