SYMPATHETIC SILKS

This is something that lovers of silk tricks cannot afford to miss.  It is an effect that appeals to the ladies in the audience particularly.  Showing three pairs of silks, each pair a different colour, the magician openly counts them one at a time, passing them from hand to hand to show there is no deception.  He then takes one of each colour and lays the three silks on a chair, the other three he ties together, and places on another chair.  He makes the magic pass, and In sympathy with those tied — THE FIRST THREE SILKS ARE PICKED UP AND SHOWN TIED TOGETHER -END TO END.  These are untied and placed aside.  Again the magic passes are made, and again the same effect - FOR THOSE HE OPENLY TIED TOGETHER ARE NOW FOUND TO HAVE DROPPED APART!  They are picked up singly.  The final effects are nothing short of miraculous.  The three single silks are picked up and tied in a bunch - when the other three are found in a similar bunch.
The performer unties all and shows six single separate silks - and for his finale throws the whole lot into the air.  Wonder of wonders - THEY ALL COME DOWN TOGETHER - TIED IN ONE LARGE BUNCH!  This is breathtaking magic.  Full illustrated routine and everything necessary.

PRICE £47.00 PLUS £3.00 POST AND PACKING


 


Telling the story of a magician’s washing day, the performer gets two children to help him.  The magic washing is tied on the line.  There is a whole lot of business with the tying of several more knots to keep the hankies secure.  However, in spite of all precautions, when the magician commands, THE HANKIES ALL FALL OFF THE CENTRE OF THE LINE WITH THE KNOTS IN THEM STILL TIED!!  Strange as it may seem, the knots in the rope all vanish!  Very easy to do.  A REAL STAGE TRICK.

MYSTERY OF THE FIFTH CARD
SCALBERT

The Medium sits with her back to the audience.  She asks you to deal ANY five cards, face down, from your own well shuffled pack.  She asks you to give them to the assistant so that he may make a mental impression of them.  She then asks the assistant to show a second pack to the audience.  These are arranged in suit order for convenience.  This pack is handed to her by you.  Next she asks you to mix the five cards you dealt and place one of them aside WITHOUT SHOWING IT TO ANYBODY.  The other four cards are handed to the Medium WITHOUT ANYONE SEEING THE FACES OF THEM.  NO ONE CAN KNOW WHICH CARD HAS BEEN CHOSEN.  The Medium looks over the four cards, lays them aside, and from the full pack, takes one card which is placed face down on the table.  You place your chosen card alongside.  Slowly the cards are turned over and the Medium has chosen the duplicate of your card.  THE ASSISTANT DOES NOT SPEAK AND MAKES NO SIGNALS. HE CAN GO OUT OF THE ROOM BEFORE THE CARD IS CHOSEN

COIN PAIL

Coins from the air!  Coins from a spectators coat, from his nose, his hair, everywhere!  Coins by the handful.  That is the effect you give with this magnificent piece of equipment, every part made to perfection by a craftsman in our own factory.   The bucket, in fact, does all the work for you.  The two handles each contain up to 16 coins which are delivered one at a time into the hand.  In the base of the bucket there are five loads, each of up to 20 coins.  This makes a total of up to 132 coins.  The bucket will take most large British and foreign coins, also palming coins.  The body of the bucket is seamless spun and measures 8” high and is almost 12” across the handles.  Highly polished and plated.  A real investment and a prop to last a lifetime.  No routine is included.

THE SILVER SCEPTRE

This is a really entertaining effect which can be used for adults or children with the audience close to you.  A silver rod is shown and is rubbed with a silk (not supplied), the Sceptre is pushed right down into the silk within the closed fist and suddenly it begins to rise up out of the silk handkerchief.  This is repeated and then the Sceptre is pushed inside and examined bag. Slowly and mysteriously, the rod rises until it is completely out of the bag.  It is repeated but this time the bag is held sideways and still the rod slowly pushes its way out.  Finally the rod is placed into the bag and turned upside down - the bag suddenly shoots right up into the air and the rod is shown to be free from any attachments and the bag can be examined.  The apparatus is completely self-contained and is easy to perform.  The routine can be varied to suit your own personality.There are no attachments to your hands or body or the bag.  The rod can be shown freely right close-up at any time during the routine without fear of detection.  The routine supplied is that originated by the late George Blake who devised this trick.

THE PRESIDENT'S LADY

A novel Turn It Round effect for your kids shows that has such a strong climax you will find yourself using it in your adult shows too!  Magician tells how he won a silver cup - at this stage, you can personalise and topicalise the effect - it can be a cup for your prowess as a golfer, a swimmer, an athlete, a magician! - you were awarded the silver cup but wish it had been the gold one you had won.  Unfortunately too, on the way home in the bus, you put the cup on the seat beside you and when a big, fat lady got on, she sat on it! - so it’s squashed and as flat as a pancake!  The flat silver cup is shown; it is 9 inches high X 7 1/2 inches across. You say that the cup was presented to you by the President's lady or you can say you received it from the hands of the duchess ... again you can topicalise, The Duchess of Bideford, ‘The Duchess of Muddicombe Manor" or what-have-you.  It’s very nice but not what you wanted and you were very disappointed.  There is plenty of scope for patter here as you describe the lady, using any of the old wife, mother-in-law or landlady jokes.  The cup is momentarily covered by a 24 inch silk or cloth - when uncovered, it has changed from a silver one to a bright yellow golden one.  “Yah, you turned it round."  The cup is covered and reverts back to the silver one once again. "You cheated.”   “Oh no, I didn’t".  “Oh yes, you did". etc.
The cup is gold again and the silk is removed.  "Turn it around, turn it around, what’s on the other side?"  Suddenly the cup is turned over and flipped around, when it changes - there is no Silver cup but now there stands a figure in flesh, black, white, yellow, green and red of the President’s lady (or the duchess), attired in her ball gown, just as she was when she presented the cup to you!  A sure laugh finish, different to anything else you have and easy to perform.
This is one of those lovely tricks that takes up no room in the case, but which plays quite a little time in the show. A trick which you can perform in your hands and one which gets maximum audience reaction.

DIRECT VISION BLINDFOLD

We have been asked many times for a simple but effective blindfold and we believe this is the answer.  Everything can be examined.  First two small bags of cotton wool are placed one over each eye, then the blindfold itself is placed over the top of these and tied behind your head.  It is obviously impossible for the performer to have any kind of vision whatsoever, but yet is able to conduct tests which prove he must have SIGHTLESS VISION.  It is even possible to perform the famous BLINDFOLD DRIVE in a car through various objects without hitting any. You can tell what has been written on a blackboard, find a chosen card etc., etc.  You receive the blindfold, the two bags of cotton wool and full instructions.

GUINEA PIG BOX
LLOYD

As used by Harry Anderson of ‘Night Court' fame.  One of the highlights of his night club act, now available to the magic fraternity. Hilariously funny, mystifyingly magical.
EFFECT: The performer enters carrying a cage containing his favourite pet, a cute Guinea Pig (yes Martha, It’s really alive!) Performer begins to relate a tragic story, something he would NEVER allow to happen to him.  ‘A friend renting a small room in a boarding house was told he could have NO alcohol and NO PETS!  Little did the landlady know that he kept a cute little furry animal like this (magician shows his guinea pig) in a cage next to his bed.  Rooms in this town were very hard to get AND expensive, so the friend would be out in the street if his secret got out.  One day as luck would have it, the landlady was tossing out some trash and noticed a used box of Guinea Pig Nibbles!  She set out to search every room for the violator, and soon came to the friend’s room.  In a panic he removed his pet from the cage and wrapped him in a sheet of news paper (performer wraps his pet in like manner).  After a thorough search the landlady noticed the bundle in his hands and demanded to see the contents.  ‘Cotton Candy’ was the friend’s reply. Not convinced, the old woman wanted proof.  Hesitantly, he picked at the paper, tearing a small hole in it and exposing a patch of white fur ... ‘See just cotton candy’ was his remark.  She wanted more proof!  Plucking at the fur he removed a patch and began to eat It!!!  ‘Eat more’, the old crow screeched, ‘or you're out in the Street’.  Frantically the man began picking at the paper, pulling more and more fur, until he realized he had completely consumed his pet!  Needless to say, the landlady was convinced.’
COMPLETELY SELF-CONTAINED. WORK AWAY FROM TABLES. ETC. NO BODY LOADS ... USE YOUR OWN GUINEA PIG.  GUINEA PIG IS NOT HARMED IN ANY WAY.
DOVE WORKERS TAKE NOTE:  A DOVE MAY BE SUBSTITUTED FOR THE GUINEA PIG - INSTRUCTIONS INCLUDED.

At the famous M.A.E.S. Convention, it was awarded the “BEST TRICK OF THE CONVENTION” Prize.  Quite honestly you can do so many routines with various articles, I hardly know which one to describe ... the effects possible with the “Thought Train Principle” are unlimited. For a start I will describe a wonderful card effect ... it has been described by American critics as a “Miracle of Modern Mentalism”.  But ... I want to emphasise ... that articles, other than playing cards, may be used in different routines.  This is not “just another card trick”.
EFFECT: A lady and gentleman are invited to assist.  The lady is given a small notice board to hold, and the gentleman is requested to think of any card in the pack.  On the face of the card (the identity of which is known to everyone) the magician writes a message, as he “reads the gentleman’s mind”.  This card is placed openly in an empty envelope, which is, in turn, pinned (by means of a drawing pin) to the “notice board” held by the lady.  There it remains in full view ... and the “Message Card” is never again touched by the Magician.  The gentleman now names his mentally selected card.  It is removed from the pack and openly dropped into the pinned envelope, along with the message card ... spectator himself now removes the two cards from the envelope, remember, he does this himself, Magician touches nothing!  The gentleman hands his card to the lady, who names it aloud and shows it to the audience.  The gentleman then reads the message card which says ... “The selected card is - of -”.  That turns out to be the card just named by the lady!
The above is a magnificent routine for platform, Stage or Cabaret ... A further routine is given which is especially suited for close-up, Private or Press performances.  In this the “notice board’ is omitted ... the complete test appears impromptu.
Another great routine described in the instructions, and for which materials are provided, is called ... “Design Projection”.  Several members of the audience draw designs on small cards, which are collected, dropped into an envelope and tacked on to the board.  Any person removes one of the cards ... concentrates on it ... and believe it or not ... performer can draw the selected design on a board or slate or describe it in any way desired!  Other ideas are given in which Names of Famous People are used ... numbers of notes ... etc. ... etc.  In fact ... just as we stated before ... the possibilities are unlimited.  Easy to Do - Absolutely no Sleight of Hand - Mechanical in Working. Complete with all apparatus necessary to work this effect.

SENSATIONAL HYPNOTIC RIGID TEST

Here is a great test that offers conclusive proof of the existence of genuine hypnotism in the minds of thousands.  It will brand you as a great hypnotist. Using a subject weighing less than 100 lbs., performer places subject under hypnotic control(?); then causes the subject’s muscles to become rigid, so that the body is as strong and unyielding as steel.  The hypnotised subject is then placed across two chairs, the ankles resting on one, and the shoulders on the other chair, nothing else supporting the body.  And while in this state, three full grown men stand upon the body which is suspended across the chairs.  OR a large rock may be placed on the stomach, and broken by the blow of a heavy sledge-hammer!  OR, place a 100-pound anvil on the subject’s unsupported stomach, and allow two powerful men to play the “Anvil Chorus” (accompanied by the orchestra), swinging twin sledge-hammers on the anvil with all their might.  This spectacle, the resultant sound effects and music will lift your audience right out of their seats!
And you can post a challenge of £100.00 reward to any one who can duplicate the feat should any spectator accuse you of fakery, and we explain why and how he cannot win the challenge, if you know the “tricks of the trade.”   Here is a complete stage illusion - running time eight to twelve minutes, requires no apparatus.  Ordinary stage properties used.  A sensation on any program.  Excellent out-of-doors attraction.  No secret apparatus whatsoever is used, and assistant can be taught the method and secret in five minutes’ time.  Committee or audience may completely surround the subject at all times.  A great demonstration for television, radio, or by direct arrangement while playing theatres, with demonstration across the street in store window.  The Challenge Hypnotic Rigid Test is a tremendous publicity stunt - wherever you are working! Complete A to Z dope on this great pseudo-hypnotic test.

FLAMES TO CANE

It is very difficult to find the right opening trick - something which will create excitement and instant audience interest.  Flames to Cane is the answer.  Made completely from metal this apparatus is a really professional outfit.  In the past some dealers have sold just the torch so that you could fasten it to your own appearing cane.  Many magicians found that this was not satisfactory since the torch was not held on properly and moved about before release.  We supply the COMPLETE UNIT READY TO WORK.  A metal appearing cane with the specially constructed torch bonded to the cane.  The wick is replaceable and uses thick magician’s rope - available from us or any other dealer.
Imagine walking on to the stage with a burning torch - make out that you are going to place it into your mouth - smile at your audience and instantly the lit torch has vanished and you are holding a metal walking cane.  If you work with an assistant try this for a sensational opening.  Both walk out with burning torches, turn and look at each other, throw the burning torches towards each other. ... WHAM ... in mid air the torches change to walking canes which you both catch.

RESISTANCE SECRETS

SERIES OF FOUR, PLUS BONUS EFFECT.
The presentation of a series of scientific baffling effects that appear contrary to all NATURAL LAWS.  Deemed impossible by those who have never witnessed the phenomena; regarded unreal by those who have seen it.  The effect is that of a strange mental influence exerted over the strongest, weakening them at will.  Un-describable, yet real!

(1) Man or woman stands on one foot and places across outstretched hands and challenges any number (yes, any number) of men, women and children to push against this broom - and push her off her balance.  Nor does she employ any great physical energy in successfully resisting this superior force, a mere girl combating the combined effort of 20 or more men.
(2) Performer states that strongest man cannot lift her against her will, and a trial proves assertion.  However, when she so “wills,” the lifting is easy.  A tremendous sensation and the feature attraction of many shows the world over. The “Non-Liftable Girl” is the greatest of Resistance Secrets.
(3) Performer places the tips of the two forefingers together, holding same about
six inches in front of the chin, requesting any spectator to grasp the wrists and pull the fingers (which merely touch each other) apart.  As utterly simple as it may seem, this is impossible without the performer’s consent.  A “vest pocket” edition and extremely effective.
(4) Performer places palms against broom handle of ordinary broom held in vertical position and requests any spectator to push the
broom down so the lower end touches the floor.  This Is found impossible to do, as they cannot move it down one inch, yet the performer simply supports it with open palms.
The above resistance effects can be accomplished by anyone possessing the true secret. Absolutely no apparatus is employed in this super-sensation.  May be per formed without previous experience, only a few minutes practice required.  Excellent for a feature attraction, ballyhoo and high-class entertainment.  Untold possibilities when presented as “Mental Force”, “Mind Over Matter,” “Hypnotism,” etc.
Complete methods, manuscript form, the five effects
FREE! To anyone that purchases the above series of four Resistance Secrets, we will send FREE of extra charge the amazing effect described
below.
THE ABNORMAL LIFT
A puzzling experiment, to which no intelligent solution has ever been offered.  Two persons insert one finger under knee, other under arm pit of some party seated and lift them several inches clear of the chair they are sitting on.  As good as it sounds and fine in conjunction with Resistance Secrets.

THE SPIRIT NUT

Known as the ‘Brema Nut’ this precision apparatus can be used in many different ways.
A brass nut is shown and a spectator threads a length of cord right through the nut and can even tie a knot around it if desired.

FLAMING THUMB TIP

This is the ideal accessory to be used with candle routines.  It’s a special thumb tip which will aid the magician to transfer a flame from a candle to the hand.  It is also a most useful gimmick to use prior to vanishing one of Fantasio’s lighted candles.  The candle collapses, its flame automatically goes out and is transferred onto the special ‘Flaming Thumb Tip’ so that from the audience’s view, the lighted candle still appears to be there right until the last moment.  One minute the lighted candle is apparently seen, the next, it’s gone!
The special thumb tip can also be used as a gag item combined with flash paper, wool or string.  A great gag is to light the fingers from a cigarette lighter and then to light the cigarette itself.

THE SENSATIONAL PULSE CONTROL

The performer displays his “hypnotic” power by stopping his own pulse on command!  A sensational demonstration that may be used for an exhibition at interviews with the press, prospective sponsors of your show, etc.  An ideal trick for ballyhoo purposes.  Can be fitted into any type of program and is especially useful because it can be performed at a moment’s notice under any conditions.
Physicians or nurses can examine the performer’s pulse at any time.  They will find that it beats normally except when he wills it to stop.  Then they can not find the pulse at all - it has stopped!  At the performer’s command, it starts again.  The medical profession will be at a loss to explain this phenomenon.  But you can do it immediately once you know the secret.  It’s just a trick, after all, but boy - what a trick!  Complete details supplied.

AMAZING MEMORY FEAT

This extraordinary demonstration of super-memory always excites comment whenever it is shown.  It was a favourite of the late Rupert Howard.  Those well-known professionals, Horace and Betty King, have scored outstanding successes with this method.
A very simple but extremely Effective System whereby any ordinary Individual is enabled to memorise one at a time of a series of everyday articles as called out by members of the audience.  These are written down in turn by a spectator who keeps a record of articles and its number.
When about thirty have been listed the performer commences at the first and slowly calls out the NAME OF EACH ARTICLE and Its number.
Spectators can then call any number and performer names the article.  Each one is checked by spectator with the list.  Finally, and this seems to be the most stupendous feat of all, the performer calls out the entire list In REVERSE.
The whole effect is based on the system of mnemonics, which is the association of Ideas.  The code is fully illustrated and we guarantee anyone can do this simple miracle.  It always gains great admiration and is equally effective for drawing room or stage. Quite easy.

NOT-A-KNOT ROPE

A knot is shown tied in the middle of a length of rope.  The performer states that it is a sliding knot and proceeds to prove the point by sliding it down the rope to one end, then slides it down to the other end.  He states that it was all just an illusion and suddenly it is seen that the knot has completely VANISHED without trace and the rope is thrown out for examination.  There have been several sliding rope tricks in recent years, some of which have been very expensive, however this one is simple to perform very strong in effect, can be examined without giving away a thing and the price is right.

THE EXCELSIOR ROPE TIE

Used by the Great Huber.
One of the best Rope Ties ever.  Each wrist is tied with a stout cord.  After this the performer crosses his arms while the ends of the cord are passed around and securely tied at his back, thus making it impossible for him to bring his hands together.  He next sits down on a chair and the ends of the cords are securely fastened to the top of the chair.  Other cords are then tied around the knees and ankles.  A screen is then placed in front of the performer, who now producers all the usual manifestations and who also conjures a borrowed ring on the cords at his back. Immediate inspection allowed and everything found secure.

VANISHING MARTINI BOTTLE

A sophisticated effect for cabaret or stage.
A really spectacular new effect, the Vanishing Bottle of Martini is visual, magical and colourful.  Without any pulls or tables, the bottle dematerialises.  You show the full size bottle from which you can pour a drink.  A thin tube only half the height of the bottle is lowered over it where it can be seen above and below.  A silk draped over and whisked away, the tube is now empty (remember it was only half the size of the bottle anyway).  The bottle has completely vanished.  You can if you wish vary the presentation by producing a huge fountain of silks from the tube, or even a dove.  Truly a quite astounding effect. Yes, it can even be done close up.  Price includes the Martini bottle and tube.

UNEQUAL-EQUAL ROPE
(PROFESSOR'S NIGHTMARE)

To patter about a student's efforts to disprove a teacher’s theory about mathematic the performer shows three lengths of rope.  One is short, one is medium in length, and one is long.  Holding three ends in one hand and the other ends in the other hand, the performer visibly stretches the ropes until they are all the same length!
The ropes are counted singly to show that there are actually three pieces of the same length.  Then you prove that maybe things are not quite what they seem. The pieces are shown again separately AND THEY ARE ONCE AGAIN UNEQUAL.  Here is a trick that gives scope either for straight or comedy presentation. The patter presentation described with the routine is by courtesy of Gene Gordon.  The trick can be done at any time during your act as there is no setting up.  Nothing added or taken away, and the ropes can be examined.  Ropes, patter, presentation and routine supplied complete WITH SPECIALLY WOVEN COLOURED ROPE.

MANY-CUT ROPE MYSTERY

An unprepared length of rope is doubled, coiled and folded over several times.  With a pair of scissors, you proceed to cut of bunches of the rope wholesale, leaving a number of ends.  Again and again you cut until it seems there will be nothing but short pieces left.  Suddenly you throw down these remnants and they all join together as if by magic, the rope being fully restored when tossed out to a spectator.  Full instructions and a length of rope so you can perform it straight away.  Nothing to add or get rid of at the end.  Very easy to work.

TWO PIECES ARE ALWAYS DIFFERENT LENGTHS ... finally they join together.

A six foot length of rope is tied into a series of loops, forming a series of links in a chain.  The performer places an end loop over each hand explaining that this rope chain was a sort of handcuff to protect the wearer from evil spirits.  The performer holds one end of the chain with his left hand whilst the right hand picks up the scissors and cuts each loop, leaving four knots in the rope.  The knots are trimmed and the rope is wrapped around the left hand.  Upon unwinding the rope it is found to be RESTORED IN ONE PIECE.  The trick is very easy to do, requires no preparation and is always ready.  Illustrated instructions are supplied complete with a length of rope.  Remember the rope is not substituted, no adhesives, wires or clips or fekes of any kind.

RAINBOW RIOT

Here is something different in rope magic, combining colour with clever magic.  The ropes supplied are hand made and the effect is  suitable for silent or patter presentation.
The performer shows a multi-coloured rope, woven in five bright colours.  It is coloured yellow, red, white, green and pink.  The performer picks up the rope and coils it round his empty hand.  When the rope is uncoiled it is found to be knotted.  A yellow knot is on the yellow section, a red knot on the red section, a white knot on the white section, a green knot on the green section and a pink knot on the pink section.  APPLAUSE CUE NUMBER ONE.
The performer passes his hand over the rope and all the knots magically change.  The pink knot is now on the yellow section, the yellow knot on the red section, a white knot on the green section, a red knot on the white section and a green knot on the pink part.  APPLAUSE CUE NUMBER TWO.
The rope is once more coiled around the hand and is tossed out to the audience revealing all the knots have now vanished and the spectator can examine a rope that will not give a clue as to how the magic happened.  APPLAUSE CUE NUMBER THREE.  The effect is easy to learn and comes complete with full routine and everything you need.

SWALLOWING RAZOR BLADE TRICK

This startling and bizarre illusion never fails to obtain loud applause and audience attention.  This method is one of the best and easiest.  It can be presented any time, anywhere.  A number of razor blades are proved to be sharp by cutting a piece of card.  They are placed one by one onto the tongue and ‘swallowed’.  A cotton reel is shown and a length of thread is snapped off and placed into the mouth along with the razor blades.  The performer takes a quick drink and then reaching into his mouth he withdraws the end of the thread and to gasps of astonishment, the razor blades are seen to be threaded on it at regular intervals. The mouth can now be shown empty.  Please note that NO RAZOR BLADES ARE LOADED INTO THE MOUTH FROM THE GLASS OF WATER.

COURT OUT

The performer shows an envelope which he states contains the 4 Kings.  He says that one of the Kings has been taken from another deck of jumbo cards and it has a different coloured back.  He says that he has reversed this card amongst the other three Kings.  A spectator is now invited to name any one of the four Kings.  THIS IS A COMPLETELY FREE CHOICE - NO FORCE OF ANY KIND IS USED.
When the spectator names his choice, the envelope is opened and the four Kings are removed and fanned.  It is seen that ONE KING ONLY has it’s face to the audience and it is THE VERY CHOSEN KING.  The back of the King is now shown and it has a DIFFERENT COLOURED BACK TO THE OTHER THREE CARDS.

MASTER CHALLENGE ESCAPE FROM 75 FEET OF ROPE

This is the master feat of the rope manipulator’s art and is presented as a sensational challenge feature or as a grand climax with which to close the entertainment.  A committee of spectators is invited upon the stage and permitted to tie the performer in any way their imagination dictates with a piece of rope from 50 to 75 feet in length. The committee sets to work with a will and proceeds to bind him until his entire body is practically covered with rope.  The audience always seems to take a keen interest in this tying and frequently stands up in the aisles to offer suggestions, so that there is not a dry moment during the time consumed in tying.  Of course the performer releases himself and generally in much less time than was required to tie him.
Never before has a full and satisfactory explanation, or have detailed instructions for working this release been given in any publication, or any set of instructions sold.  The feat is presented by only a very few so that it is by no means overworked.

LUCKY LOOPS

Here is a baffling rope routine, with an off-beat climax.
Effect: Performer shows a length of rope coiled in his hands.  He ties the ends of the rope together.  When he pulls the rope from his hand five more knots magically appeared along the rope.
For the climax performer unties the last knot and the piece of rope comes off as a separate loop.  This is repeated with the other four knots and four more rope loops are magically formed.  He finally unties the knot at the ends of the rope, and this length of rope also transforms into a loop.

JUMBO OUT OF THIS UNIVERSE

One of the finest card tricks of all times is ‘Paul Curry’s Out Of This World, where a spectator magically separates an ordinary deck of playing cards into heaps of red and black cards, without seeing their faces.
Out Of This Universe is a larger Jumbo Card size version of the same effect, designed for a larger audience, and suitable for platform or even stage use.  It uses fewer cards, and is therefore snappier and shorter in presentation, making it more suitable as an item in your professional act.  The working principal is entirely different to the original, making this a mechanical effect almost self working to perform.
Effect: Performer displays a dozen Jumbo Cards, six of which are red, and six black.  The cards are shuffled and one red and one black card pulled out and placed face up on the table, (or resting faces to audience on a stand or against two glass tumblers, depending on your performing conditions.)
The other ten cards are shuffled.  A spectator is now asked to guess whether a card is red or black as it is held back towards him.  The card is placed face down (back facing spectators) on the appropriate red or black face out “leader” card.  This is repeated with all the other cards, so that there are two heaps of six cards each.  The cards are now turned to face the spectator, who has successfully separated the red and black cards without seeing their faces, by his “mental powers”.
With a little presentation effort and suitable patter relating to the powers of the mind, this is an incredible effect.

MULTIPLYING BOTTLES

A trick used by the ‘greats’ in magic.  A favourite trick of the late Tommy Cooper and many others.  Two tubes stand on the table.  One tube is lifted to reveal a bottle.  The other tube is lifted to reveal a glass.  The performer now commences to cover the bottle and glass and commands them to change places.  Which they do time after time.  Suddenly the performer appears to be confused and discovers an extra bottle.  He places it to one side and carries on with the routine.  But once again he finds an extra bottle.  This is placed to one side.  The routine begins again and of course another extra bottle is found, then another and another until a total of EIGHT BOTTLES have appeared from nowhere.  At this point the performer calls ‘TIME AND GOODNIGHT’ and makes his exit.  The trick is quite easy to perform and has a tremendous effect on the audience.  The bottles used are the popular Martini style bottles and the two metal tubes are nicely decorated with a dragon design.
The Multiplying Bottles has become one of the classics of magic and is a strong stage filling climax to any magic act.

GIANT DRAWER BOX

Here at last is a production prop which will take a very large load indeed including a large rabbit.  A nicely decorated box is shown completely empty. Holes at the side of the box enable the audience to see into the outer cover when the drawer is the drawer is closed and a magic pass made over the box.  When the drawer is opened it now contains a live rabbit or a load of silks, a cake or three doves or even a crocodile.  The Drawer Box virtually works itself.  The size of the box is 12 inches long x 7 inches high x 8 inches wide and the actual load chamber is almost the size of the box itself.  An added feature of this box is that when the load has been produced the drawer can be completely removed from the box.  This is very useful if you are producing a live rabbit as the rabbit can be carried into the audience in the actual drawer itself if required.  We feel sure you will enjoy working this versatile prop and will find many uses for it.
