SUNDAY MAGAZINE FOR JULY 5. 1908
THE GAME OF DIABOLO
By George E. Walsh
DIABOLO has become so popu
lar ii Paris that the Champs
£l\>ee was made almost impass
able thereby, and the authorities
had to prohibit the flying spindl< s
in the TinHeries Gardens. The
sport spread over the rest of Eu
rope, and of arse reached this
country. Upward of a million of
the bobi 'ins were imp< irted or made
in this country for the holiday
trade, and in anticipation of a
n-,ore general outbreak of the game
in the spring preparations were
made by the factories to turn out
millions' of the sets to meet the
popular demand.
Yankee shrewdness has already
devised many variations of the
game. Under the name of " avil<
a similar game is now being played.
I >!...!•< lo is not a new game, as some
snppo c but was originally brought
from China, where it may ■ • ■••■
l.een played for centuries. In the
Orient variations on the game may
be found, and some of these varia
tions have now been taken up and
improved upon in our own country.
How It Is Played
AS most readers know, dia
"^ bolo i- played with two
sticks and a bobbin. The
sticks are attached by a stout
string on the end, and the bobbin
■■■- twirled up and down on the
string, and then hurled into the
air by suddenly bringing the string
taut.' The bobbin must be math
ematically correct for this purpose.
The game is played out of doors by
throwing it back and forth over a
tennis net and catching the spin
ning bobbin on the taut string.
Tournaments an conducted in
France, and already official
high scores are recorded.
Common sjx-ols can be con
verted into bobbins by sawing
off the ends and gluing th«
together, or, if a groove is care
fully made round the middle
for "the string, the ordinary
large spool will answer. The bob
bins made for the game, however,
give the best results, and they are
so cheap that anyone can get them,
and then make the sticks and
strings.
One variation of this game is to
take two bobbins and attach them
together with a stick as shown in
Fig. i. A space is left between the
bobbins to accommodate an ordi
nary paper pinwheel (Fig. 2). This
can be cut out of any stiff paper or
The Mysterious Mr. Home
an<l of the most baffling of Home's feats, his levi
tations.elongations, and the like, of which it has
been possible to give onlythe barest outline here.
For the rest, bearing in mind the fate of other
dealers in turning tables and dancing chairs, he
may fairly be regarded in the light Browning re
garded him, that is to say as an exceptionally
able conjurer who enjoyed the singular Rood
fortune of never being found out. It must be
remembered that not once was there applied to
him the test that is now recognized as abso
lutely indispensable in the investigation of
mediums who. like Hoi are specialists in the
production of '■physical" phenomena. This
test is the demand that the phenomena in ques
tion be produced under conditions doingaway
with the necessity for constant observation of
the medium himself.
Even Sir William Crookes, who appreciated
to the full the extreme fallibility of the human
eye and the ease witii which the most careful
observer may be deceived by a clever pn -
tidigitator. failed to apply ..... Home,
and by so failing laid himself open on the one
hand to deception and on the other to the
flood of criticism let loose by his scientific
colleagues. N..r must it be forgotten that for
the most part Home's manifestations occurred
in the presence of men and women who. if not
spiritualists •. had implicit confidence
in his good faith and could by no stretch of the
imagination be called trained investigators.
Indeed, it seems safe to say that had present
day methods >,{ inquiry been employed, as
they are employed by the experts of the 'Society
for Psychical Research, Home, so far at any
rate as concerned the great bulk of his phe
nomena, would quickly have been placed in
the same gallery as Madam Hlavatsky, I. v apia
I'aladmo, and those other wonder workers
whom the society has discredited.
Nut Easy to Cry Fraud
TN' the matter of the levitations and elonga
1 lions, however, it is not so easy to raise the
try of sheer fraud. Here the only rational ex
planation, short of supposing that Home
•ivailed himself if not of the aid of "spirits" at
teast of the aid of some unknown physical
force, seems to be, as was id, the exercise of
hypnotic power. The accounts given by Lord
Dui.raveii, Lord Crawford, and Sir \Vilham

the two t" i bins run through it-
To •use this double bobbin the

\Y"> n the double bobbin is twirled

movements. The bobbin will at

md then turn upside down and

porting power of the pinwheel wfl]
ften carry the bobbins several
hundred feet before they return
it the ground.
A slight breeze gives a veritable
lirship effect to the flying instm
niTit. Two rubber Kind-- such as
ised for umbrellas must be fas
tened to the inserting -ti< k t<
keep the pinwheel fr<.m getting
aught in the two bobbins.
The Chinese Used a Parachute
"PHI-: Chinese used a primitive
sort of parachute with th«
bobbins. Tin- parachute, made oi
rather rice paper, was closec
.mil wrapped carefully round one
md of the Dobbin. When hurled in
to the air the t" < <r< <■ < ■! tbe m« it i< >n
and the air releases !':.<■ para
chute, and when the weight oi
the bobbin begins to pulldown
ward the parachute opens an«
supports the descending weight
as seen in Fig. 3. Frequentlj
in China the parachute arrange
ment would hold the bobbin in
the air for five minutes, ami on
a holiday it was not unusual U
see the air literally full of thest
tiny parachutes, carrying their
small burdens along. They wen
made of different colored papers,
md the effect was somewhat fas
cinating.
An American variation in tin
diabolo game i- the construc
tion of a I" bbin with a s mal]
whistle concealed in one end.
When the bobbin is thrown
into the .iir, the wind blows
the whistle and produces a
shrill sound which dies out
gradually to a low murmur as
the instrument descends. As
these bobbins can be hurled to
great di tanoe in the air, the
whistling of half .. dozen of them
may easily resemble miniature
fireworks as they hurtle upward.
The whistling diabolo bobbin may
in time be Followed by the har
monica and trumpet bobbin, and
the air will thus reproduce noises
that will nv.il the hurdygurdies of
, ity streets.

The safety, comfort and con
venience of the Mar/in solid top,
closed -in breech and side ejec
tion features are combined with
the quick, easy manipulation of
the popular sliding fore-end or
"pump" action in the new Model
20 fl7ar£/t rifle.
In rapid firing— the real test
of a repeater — the mar/in solid
top is always a protection and
prevents smoke and gases blow
ing back; the ejected shell is
never thrown into your face or
eyes, and never interferes with
the aim; the fat forearm fits your
hand and helps quick operation.
It~handles the short, long and
long-rifle cartridges without
change in adjustment, and the
deep Ballard rifling guarantees
the accuracy, making it the finest
little rifle in the world for target
shooting and for all small game
up to 150 or 200 yards.
