I tory m i the sea Wall the i i Grade raising and x t the opera class % will make gales ton the South a 1 largest Best City a and port. I i f a z i established 1879galveston. Texas. Saturday feb. 8. 1 908 vol. Xxx. No. 29 for parlor maqician8. Good trick with which to Start you slight of hand travelling Penny is a Good trick to begin with. Drill two very Small holes i Obj together through the Center of a Penny past through them a piece of. Flesh coloured silk some three inches in length and fasten the ends neatly and securely pass the Loop thus formed a around the left thumb. Borrow a Penny which May be marked by the owner for from any one in the audience. Pretend to pass tills into the left hand but really Palm it in the right at the same time a howling the prepared Coin to the left. Close the left Palm toward the audience and at the same to me swing the prepared Coin with a Jerk of the thumb on to the Back of the hand. Then open the hand the Penny has vanished. The borrowed Coin hidden in the right hand can. Then be discovered in any place desired the pocket of its owner or the hair of some unsuspecting Young lady in t the audience. Quot haying commenced borrowing you May continue by asking the loan of a watch. Taking up a Square piece of paper from Yorior table you Roll it into the shape of a Cornucopia and ask one of the audience to put the watch inside. Request him to feel the paper to make sure the watch is within. Then tap the Cornucopia with the Wand and unfolding it in full View Stow that the watch has completely disappeared. The Sheet of paper used is really double forming a Flat bag. In the Jat nac cd carefully Stow a tame Rabbit and put on the tray. At the Bottom of the Cylinder Lay a Are of paper and shavings something very Light and having asked the assembled company to watch you make a Welsh Rarebit and expatriate upon your proficiency As a Cook putting Tho necessary ingredients for a Rarebit into the tray press the lid Down and place the Saucepan Over the lighted Are which at once goes out. You continue your remarks for a to. Ment presumably while the Rarebit la cooking and then lift the Saucepan from the Cylinder taking off. The lid which of course carries the tray with it. Out hops the live Rabbit twitch. Ing his Long ears and blinking at the spectators much to the amazement of the same. Trick with toothpick. A Quot v How the bags Are made. When the Cornucopia is formed its Mouth must be the Mouth of the bag a a single thickness of paper being on one Side a and two thicknesses. On the other that when the watch is apparently placed in the Coriou amp Opla it is really placed Between the two sheets of papa which Are securely gummed at the three other. Tildes except for a Small opening in one Corner. A a shows the open aide of the bag cd the smaller Mouth. The Plain Aldo is the one chiefly seen by the audience but if Well made in Dart coloured paper the Mouth Side can safely be shown. In the diagrams of course the openings in the double paper Are exaggerated to make the1 formation explicit. In the actual paper bag the edges do not perceptibly separate and the whole must appear Asa single Sheet. After showing the apparently empty paper in turning to throw it away let the watch slip out through cd and Palm it or slip it in a convenient pocket assuring the owner that it will rematch Waltze later on. If you Are at All Apt at Metal work a Moat effective finale for your Little entertainment can be arranged. Got a deep Saucepan and fit the top of it with a tray a half Noh perhaps in depth constructed that when the lid is pressed Down tiny wire clamps grip the tray and the two can be lifted a Oft together. You also want a Plain tin Cylinder just big enough to fit the Saucepan. How it can be made to drop Coin in bottle. Bend a wooden toothpick in the Middle which will of course almost break it through the two parts being held together by an Uncertain Section. Now place it at an acute Angle across the toothpick bottle and Coin. Mutli of an empty bottle with a Nickel on top. Ask the spectators How they would set about causing the Coin to fall into the bottle without either touching or breathing on the Bent Stacta or Nickel. They will beat about for a solution of the problem but Are hardly Likely to discover it without assistance. Yet though hard to discover it is by no Means difficult to do. Dip your Finger in a Glass of water an a holding it above the Angle of the Bent Wood allow a Tew drops to fall upon the broken part. Swollen by the moisture the fibres of the Wood will tend to straighten themselves and Little by Little you will see the angl6 of the stick growing larger and larger until no longer supporting the Coin the latter will fall into the magical experiments. A cutting Board. One which will serve for Mother and the children. This cutting Board can be made by any Bright boy Handy with tools from a strip of half Inch Pine 36 Inthea Long and 23 inches wide.
