The magician or prestidigitatoi
makes use of the latest discoveries in
the varied branches of science. He
does not claim to perform anything
supernatural, and the spectator knows
that all the performances rest upon
The attractions now offered are sc
varied that mere sleight-of-hand per
formances and conjurers tricks have
through many repetitions lost their,
charm for the public. An innovation
which makes possible some surprising
effects has been introduced under the
mysterious term of "Black Art."
In this production the walls, floors
and ceiling of the stage are draped en
tirely in black velvet. Not a spot of
color shows as the curtain rises. The
only light that shines upon the somber
scene comes from the auditorium,
THEY SEE STAXDCtG BEFORE THEM Tit
which as usual is illuminated. Sud
denly and mysteriously the magician
makes his appearance; whence he
comes from no one can understand
Mis dress consists of a robe of whitt
silk in the eastern style held togethei
by a golden belt. Open sleeves allow
the movements of the arms to be seen:
a richly embroidered turban and white
leather sandals complete his costume.
With crossed arms he salaams to the
audience; suddenly he discovers that
his magic wand is missing, without
which the promised wonders of the
evening cannot be produced. "Spirits,"
he calls, "bring me my magic wand!"
And into his extended upraised hand ii
appears as mysteriously as was his own
coming. Suddenly two small tables
are seen standing at each side of the
stage. Then he commands his spirits
to send him two vases, which appear at
once, one on each table. The pestidig
itator shows that they are empty, and
then requests the loan of a watch for a
,few minutes. The watch is handed
him. It is dropped into the vase on his
(left, which is raised and turned toward
the audience; the watch is plainly seen i
. .. m, .-.....,
in it. The vase is returned to the
table. The conjurer moves across the
stage to the other vase, thrusts his hand !
mxo it anu uraws iortn tne watcn,
which ho hands to the owner, with
thanks. How it came there is natural
ly the question of all.
Again he shows that the vases art
empty. "Now, ladies and gentlemen,'
he says, "permit me to offer you some
refreshments. I propose to produce
coffee and cake. From this vase, into
which 1 am pouring peas," suiting the
i action to the word, "I shall bring forth I

appurtenances cream, sugar, spoons,
cups and saucers and the prestidigi

tator pours steaming coffee fron
the vase in which peas had been sc.
liberally emptied. "My attendant i
already overladen, " he remarks.
"Spirits, another attendant." In the
same mysterious manner and just as
noiselessly a second waiter stands at
his side, and on his tray are heaped
dainty cakes that were quickly pro
duced from the vase that held the
beans; the servants pass among tho
audience offering the refreshments,
which are pronounced delicious. While
the favored few among the spectators
are enjoying the lunch, prepared and
served in so novel a manner, the ma
gician dryly remarks: "I am usually a
neat cook, but this time an accident
has occurred forwhich I mustbegyour
pardon." Exclamations of disgust in
terrupt him, for he has brought forth
from the vase which served the pur
pose of a coffee urn a handful of rats, 1
uium w mi a iiuiuk motion are seen to
vanish in the air. Into the other vase
he also thrusts his hand and brings
forth white mice, which follow the
course of their colored brethren.
But the prestidigitator's ambition is
not yet satisfied: his blood-thirstines3 j
is unappeased. Not content with mur
der he must needs commit suicide.
With the terse remark that "what oc- j
curs to one may happen to another,
he raises his hand to his turban nhils
he bows his acknowledgment of their j

which the little one distributes among
These startling effects are all due to
optical illusion. The stage, it will be
remembered, is entirely draped in
black, and only lighted from the front,
the back 'being in deep shadows.
Therein lies the secret. The magician,
his servants and the children all wear
white, which shows their figures in
!wld relief. The vases and the tables
are also of a light color.
Throughout the entire performance
attendants, invisible to the spectators,,
move freely about the stage. Thev
i arc dressed from head to foot in black
velvet: even the eyes are covered with
a very fine black material which pre
vents their luster being noticed by
the audience. If there were any lights
on the stage these figures would oi
course be visible, but as it is their out
lines are lost asjainst the dark back-

necessary that one of the black-robed
assistants place the vasesand tables in
position and at the proper moment
deftly remove the black coverings,
causing them to appear suddenly.
After the magician has placed the
watch in the vase at his right one of
his invisible attendants removes ;t
passes noiselessl- across the stage and
deposits it in the other vase from
which a few seconds later the magician
draws it forth.
The coffee trick is similar. After the
vases have been shown to be empty the
attendant quickly places a black cylin
der in each, the peas and beans falling
into these and not into the vases them-

moved and replaced by others-contain-
ing coffee and cake, all previously kept
in readiness. After the coffee has
been served an assistant removes the
cylinders from the vases and substi
tutes others containing rats and mice.
When these small animals so nvyste
riously vanish they have simply been
dexterously covered with black velvet
by the invisible assistants.
The instantaneous appearance of per
sons upon the stage is perhaps the
most surprising incident of the enter
tainment. But they have been there

The child is returned to the basket in
the same manner, wrapped in black
I velvet, which is dexterously removed
t iby the attendant as he lays her down.
The next scene, in which the presti
digitator is decapitated, admits of an
equally simple explanation. A"double,"
who is attired in a costume identical
.with the magician's own, has moved
to his side. His head is- covered with
black velvet and a cloak of the same
material is worn. At the moment this
falls from his shoulders a similar one
is wrapped about the performer, and
his face is also covered, while he crosses
the stage to a small table before which
he kneels, thrusts his head through a
convenient aperture therein and dis
cards the mask.
The optical illusions upon which
these exhibitions depend must, in order
to be successful, be aided or supple
mented by very skillful work on the
part of the prestidigitator and his as
sistants. The latter must bo extreme
ly careful not to come between the
lights and the performers, or the vases,
tables, etc. Even an outstretched
hand would be detected and the delu
sion consequently exposed. It is es
sential that tho attendants always
keep themselves either behind or at the
side of the white figures. Care should
also be taken that the performers and
all paraphernalia be kept well back
upon the stage, that the passing to and
fro of the assistants can, so to speak, be
merged into the shadowy background.
