Iltrnutn Usits tfur Alia He Tells a Good Szory
And illustrates it by an Amazing Trick How
he took the Gambler in Etc.
Marvelously clever is Hermann the Pres
tidigitateur, who is now performing in this
city. He surpasses all his predecessors in the
mysterious art ; in that he requires scarcely
any machinery, or paraphernalia to aid him
in producing his truly wonderful illusions:
All seems to be fairly and squarely done with
no other assistance than his own matchless
skill. . Professor Hermann, does not even re
rmirf the siirrnu ndinrre of the stoe in order
to perform his incomprehensible feat.
Whether acting in public or in private, his
sleight of hand is equally surprising. It is
often thought that as "distance fends enchant
ment to the view," so the stage and the foot
lights are essential to the performance of the
Conjurer's tricks. Not so, however, is the
case with Hermann, as we had pretty good
reason to know yesterday, when the Alta
office was favored by a visit from the myste
rious, incomprehensible and withal exceed
ingly gentlemanly Professor. After having
been introduced to several gentlemen, he
politely asked them to take cigars. These
he at once began to produce in a way that
would seem to render him a dangerous oppo
nent in the cigar trade, if he should at any
time take it into his head to engage in tnat
branch of industry. Taking a partially
smoked cigar and holding it between the
thumb and a finger of the left hand he pro
ceeded with the thumb and finger of the right
to apparently slip out from the portion of the
smoked cigar as many whole ones as there
were gentlemen to be supplied. Indeed, so
rapid was the process of manufacture that
one too many was produced ere the fact was
discovered. The Professor simply slipped it
back again with perfect unconcern. It is not
our purpose to describe the many tricks he
performed, these may be witnessed each
evening upon payment of a moderate fee.
Mr. Hermann, however, tells : . .
A GOOD STORY,
Which deserves publication. Some years
ago he was traveling on a steamer up the
Mississippi. 1 lhere was a considerable crowd
on board, to all of whom, except a son of
baron Kotnscbuds, who happened to be
traveling at the time, Hermann was entirely
unknown. A professional gambler managed
to engage a number of the passengers in the
game of poker, and before the voyage was
ended, had succeeded in winning a large
sum of money. Mr. Hermann looking on,
soon detected that the play was not quite
fair. 1 bis led the Professor to make a re
mark which extracted from the gambler a
challenge to play, which was, of course, the
very thing Hermann wanted. The Captain
of the steamer, seeing that he was a stranger.
very kindly warned Mr. Hermann that he
was sure to lose his money. 44 Oh, never
mind," said the Professor ; 44 1 can afford to
lose a few dollars." Play was then com
menced. The deal fell to Mr. Hermann, and
he so managed the cards as to give the
gambler the four best cards in the pack the
four aces, beemg the value of the cards he
held, the gambler sought to draw his intended
victim on by degrees, and so did not name
too big a stake at first, but contended himself
by saying,44! will bet $10." To which Mr.
Hermann replied " I will bet $20." The gam
bler then named $50. Mr. Hermann, noth
ing daunted, rose his bet to $500, and so
each party went on increasing his stake be
yond the offer of the other until the gambler
exhausted his coin, which amounted to nearly
5,000, and then he put down his watch and
ewelry on the table, staking the whole on
the four cards he held, as well he might, see
ing that they were the best. The crowd
stood around looking at Hermann with all
the eyes they had, and wondering if he had
taken leave of his senses to go on increasing
the stake whilst playing with one of whom
he had already been warned.
The tofalamount of the stake being at last
settled. The gambler said : 44 1 claim
the money, sir, for four aces." 44 1 beg your
pardon," replied the cool Professor, 44 1 hold
the four aces. Show your cards, if you
please sir." The gambler threw his cards on
the table with a flourish of triumph, but to
his utter amazement, they turned out to be
four kings ! Mr. Hermann produced the four
aces, and of course claimed the money. The
gambler unavailingly asserted that he had
been cheated, and claimed that he had seen
the aces in hi3 own hand. The crowd would
hear nothing of the kind, and declared that
they had seen nothing unfair, as indeed they
hadn't. 1 he biter was bitten !
WHAT WAS DONE WITH THE MONEY.
The Professor then took pains to ascertain
how much each person had previously lost
and handed the amount to him. When he
had done that, he very generously gave the
cheating gambler his money all back, except
$60, which he told him he would spend in
champagne at this expense as the price ,of
the wholesome lesson he had taught him.
THE TRICK REPEATED.
After telling the story, the Professor illus
trated it by repeating the trick m the Alta
office in presence of some thirty gentlemen
A new pack of cards was sent for and the four
aces were selected bv a gentlemen (Mr. J. H
P. Wentworth) who was told to place them
on his knee and hold them tight so as not to
. m I i i t i . i
lose tnem. inisaonene was 101a to snow
faces of the cards, when to the amazement
f every one the four aces turned out to be
four kings. Mr. Hermann did not during
the whole time touch the cards. How the
trick was done remains a mystery to every
one who saw it Verily the Professor is, as
his agent advertises him, an unsurpassable
- . . a Stl-
delineator and interpreter of refined illusion,

the President, is a very able lawyer and de

schools of the Cumberland valley. A very
plain, jet black, white chokered man stepped
up on the speaker's stand, and called the
benate to their devotions. A more simple.
beautiful and appropriate prayer I have never
heard than Chaplain Adams offered for his
dubious flock, and stricken commonwealth.
The House is nearly two-thirds negroes.
who were once slaves, and every possible
shade is to be found. There are half a dozen
members who would readily pass for pure
whites, but were South Carolina slaves only
a few years ago. Mr. Thompson, a Philadel
phia Quaker, and an onshoot of the bureau,
is the ablest white man on the floor, and one
of the most vigilant and faithful members in
either branch. Close to him sit General
Dennis, and Mr. Jenkins, two of the able po
litical leaders of the House. In the front row
is the patriarch of the Legislature an old
native white preacher, his head bleached by
the lrosts of more than 70 winters. On each
side of the Speaker sits a bright mulatto clerk,
and close by is Mr. Etter, the reporter. In
the gallery sits the first negro in South Caro
lina, with his sprightly quadroon wife by his
side. Mr. Cardozo, the Secretary of State,
is a robust, full-faced mulatto, and everything
about him indicates the highest culture. His
father and master was an officer of customs
in Charleston, and gave him a complete edu
cation in Scotland. He was regularly or
dained as a minister, and was pastor of a
New England congregation for some years
before the war. General Howard has urged
him to accept a professorship in the Lincoln
University, but he wisely prefers to serve his
long oppressed race in South Carolina. He
is highly respected by all classes, and exerts
a most salutary influence in all matters per
taining to the interest of the blacks. If he
desired to fill the executive chair of his State,
or a seat in Congress, either would be con
ceded to him without a serious struggle ; but
for the present he is content to continue as
secretary of state. It is not lmprooabie,
however, that on the 4th of March, 1871, Mr.
Cardozo, once the slave of South Carolina,
may appear at the bar of tne United States
Senate to qualify as the representative of the
chivalry in the first legislative tribunal of the
nation. - ., , - - . '
The speaker vacated the chair, and a
stout, finely-formed negro took his place4
and presided very gracefully. He is Mr.
Whipple, of Charleston, a Michigan waif,
that came with the war, and lodged when
the army was disbanded. His face is round,
full, and well drawn. If covered with a
white skin and flaxen hair, his features would
be called more than ordinarily good. He is
the Patrick Henry of the House, as an orator,
but his want of culture mars the beauty of
his sentences. Mr. Elliott, a Massachusetts
negro of full blood, is, perhaps, the ablest
disputant and parliamentary leader on the
colored side of the House. I saw him lead
in a desperate struggle of two days, in sup
port of a bill that was fought desperately by
filibustering, and he managed it with great
skill until he covered his efforts with success.
Captain Small, the hero of the Planter
during the war, is also a member. - He is a
stout, burly mulatto, and his face indicates
considerable intelligence, and great decision
ofDurDOse. Pervis is a neat, slender mulatto,.
and hails from Philadelphia, where his father
is well known as one of the most successful
financial princes of his race. The son is
the Beau Brummel of the House dresses
very tastefully, and parts hist soft, waving
hair, in the middle. He is an active and
influential member, and speaks well. De
Large is a dumpy little quadroon, a fluent
but not very forcible talker, and has a passion
for the floor. He was a steward in the rebel
army during the war. Cook, of Greenville,
is a very genteel mulatto, and a quiet but
efficient member. He is the son of his
former master, and long struggled to free
hImelffrom bondage." He saved $1,500,
by sixpences and shillings earned after labor
hours, and offered it in vain for his liberty.
Finally rebellion brought emancipation, and
his savings gave him a comfortable home.
