Two Minds With But a Single Thought -- December 11, 2017

Billboard, 22-December-1917
Julius and Agnes Zancig developed the best mentalist act in show business.  They worked together for 30 years, until Agnes died in 1916.  Julius remarried, but his second wife, Ada, didn't like appearing on stage, so Julius hired a man, called Henry in the act, who left after a short time to join the Army.  Julius hired David Bamberg, a member of the Okito family, who took the name Syko the Psychic.  Syko left in 1919 and Ada rejoined the act.
