After publishing the first eight issues of volume one monthly, there was a lapse of twenty-eight months. March, 1898, the ninth issue of volume one was published.
During this time three issues were published with a change in the name. They were numbered as if they belonged in the same volume of "Mahatma." Two of these issues were called "The Vaudeville" and the other was called "Artist Era." "Vaudeville" was intended as a weekly and the first two came out during the month of November, 1895. An official Society of American Magicians column began in July, 1902 and starting with the September, 1902 issue, it became its official organ.
- Vol. 1, N° 1, March 1895 to Vol. 9, N° 8, feb. 1906.
