[Entered at the Postoffice at Alexandria, Virginia, OS
Alexander HermatiD, tho magician, en
tertained a parly with an amusing conver
f-ntiuii in n New York hotel recently. The
irrepressible reporter was, of course, on
hand, and in reply to some observations
from :be iatler toe professor replied : "Peo?
ple like to see marvellous things. As a
rule they don't care how they are mystified,
how the handkerchief is put into the egg, or
how any one of tho numerous tricks is per?
formed. They are simply content to be
humbugged, as Mr. Circus Barnum says, as
long as they are well fooled.1' ,
To the query, "Is your skill in feats of
legerdemain mainly the result of educa?
tion'/'' the. pre.-:(liti^ilutor answered: "No
sir. My success is duo to tho fact that 1
was built, that way. It is my inheritance
from tho unknown. I have perfected my
manipulation by practice, but tbe initiai
motive comes from my heredity. My skill
is not confined to my sleight-of-hand per?
formances in public. I have psychological
or mesmeric powers which I do not display,
because there has been ho much humbug iu
that iiue. (liveu the proper subject, I can
cause him tc fall to tho lloor without touch?
ing his body. While I don't profess to be
able to explain these phenomena, still I am
p sessed of the power to execute them."
Daring tbe evening the Professor handed
around cigarettes. When the magician
reached his open palm toward the reporter,
upon which lay two of the little tobacco
stulled cylinders, the cigarettes magically
melted into one. As the scribe lit a cigar
ettee tbe Professor plucked another from
the heart of the Jack rose in his buttonhole
and presented it to him.
"As I am rather pleased with your man?
ner and conversation," said the Professor,
"allow me to present you with a slight tes?
timonial of my regard," taking a magnifi?
cent diamond riug from his linger and plac?
ing it on the linger of his visitor. The ring
litto<l like the skin on the eel, and the lucky
scribe bad already begun to congratulate
himself on his pood luck wheu?presto,
weto, change ! and the ring was gone. Bis
mullah ! the ring was picked out of the visi?
tor's pocket by tbe deft lingers of his occult
jags, and it went through a series of open
sesame changes, appearing suddenly upon
tho llocr, sbootiug iris tinted rays from its
diamond eyes, and again tho ring llew out
from between the Professor's choker and
"I will show you one of my best tricks.
'Johnny, get. a bottle of wine and some gob?
lets." Johnny returned with the wine and
goblets. The Professor poured wine into
three goblets until they were full to the
brim. "You will observe, gentlemen, that I
will take this -^lass of wine and throw it into
the air. glass and wine '.roth, and that it will
Tho glass which ;he Professor held was of
the ordinary size used for serving wine. Tho
glass was SO full of the liquid that the Pro?
fessor handled it with care lest he should
spill it. The. Profeesor stepped to tho mid?
dle of the room, holding the wine at
arm's leDgth. He gently lowered tho
glass, and then tossed it into tho the air. Af?
ter iL left the magician's hand tbe glass and
wine disappeared, leaving no trace behind
but a few scattered drops upon the lloor.
Slipping across the room, tho wonder-work?
er look t he glass of wine from tho vest pock?
et of his visitor. After the exclamation of
surprise had subsided, tho Professor said: "I
performed that trick once in Berlin, in 1807.
I atteuded a banquet given by the French
Minister. Bismarck sat on my left, and
wheu I tiirew the wine and glass into the
air I took it out of Bismarck's pocket. When
Bismarck told Emperor William what I had
done he sent me un order to use the Impe?
rial Opera House during my stay in the city
without rent. The Sultan of Turkey was
equally kind to me. We were on board his
yacht and he a^ked me if I could do a trick
with his watch, which was a most beautiful
instrument, studded wiih precious stones,
and probably worth $2,000. After every?
body on board had admired tho watch I de?
liberately threw it overboard. The Sultau
hardly knew how to takesuoh an apparent?
ly flagrant act. It was no joke to throw so
valuable a watch into the sea. 'Your Maj
esty,' said I. 'will you send for a line and
baited hook ?' He did so, and in a few mo
merits the sailor drew on board a large fish.
When I cut the fish open out dropped the
Sultan's watch. Ho was so much pleased
that he presented me with ?2,500 in gold."
The Professor next took a piece of cigar?
ette paper from his pocket. Ho tore the
paper into shreds and handed it to his vis?
itor rolled up into a little ball. "Unroll the
paner carefully," said ho. The visitor did
so, and lo andbehold ! the paper was intact
and had evidently never been torn. This
was evidently the case, but, confound the
luck ! how did ho do it ?
"I never explain how ,1 do my tricks,"
said the Professor. "If I should attempt to
explain them probably only a few out of my
audience would understand the explanation.
I do occasionally partly explain how I do
some tricks, but I usually leave the lookers
on much more mystified than they were be?
fore. It would not be right for me to give
tbe secrets of the craft away. A great many
of the tricks performed by me are also per?
formed by c:h?.-r men, and it would beau in?
justice on my part to destroy their stock in
trade. Besides, anything new in this line of
business is hard to get, aud is jealously pre?
served when discovered."
"Your skill must be an unfailing source of
amusement to you when traveling, is it not'?"
I "Decidedly so. Recently I was goiog to
New York from Boston in n pr.iace car.
When tho conductor fame around to colled
his tickets the passengers were unable to find
them. Pockets were turned inside out,
satchels wore ransacked,and the cushions of
tho seats were turned ovpr. hut no tickets
; could he found. At last I s:-.id to i he copduc
; tor : 'What i? the difficulty, sir?' 'The pas
[ sender? have lost 'heir tickets,' he replied.
! 'You have the tickets, sir,' said I. 'It Is to
j he honed that, yon are not trying to defraud
I the passengers!' He grew- as red in the
j face as a pot of red painl and replied, 'If
I you intend to tetlect on my honesty, sir. I'll
knock your two<eyes imo one.' There is no
occasion for you to lose your temper,' said
I. 'If you will take off your cap you will
lind the ticket- inside the lining.' Sure
I enough, the tickets were where I had indi?
cated. He apologize! to me, and I after
. ward learned mat. be went into the oaggage
j car and examined the tickets with a micro
I scone to be certain that tht-v were not coun
I "I bad quite a laughable ntlu'r with tbe
j colored porter of the same 'rai:;. He asked
? me for my ticket, and whet! I told him that
I he already had it and puiled it oul of bis
j vest pocket bis eve.- almost forsook tbbir
! sockets. Ho evidently thought I was in
I league wit h Satan.''
Among the iucideuts which he related
was one in regard to an episode in the Bur?
nett Hotel, in Cincinnati. Some o?o n-ked
him to play r. joke on the but her connected
I with the hotel. After the barber had lath
' ered and shaved one side of bis face the
beard miraculously grew out again. The
barber shaved !iim t wice, and still thoro
was as heavy a beard as when be began.
The barber threw down his razor und left
the shop in a hurry. The incident had such
a serious effect upon the barber that it was
thought he would have to be-sent to a luna?
