HOW JUGGLERS MAKE A FULL
GROWN MANGO TREE SPRING UP.
A Trick of Indian rerfonnera That Dai
Long ruxzlvd the World Explained for
the Firht Time How the Secret of the
Illusion Wua Discovered.
My readers will remember that some
mouths afro 1 appealed for information re
irpectine Indian jujrKlery, and especially
Jor details of the mnnner in which the cel
ebrated mango trick was performed. If I
may recapitulate the circumstances under
which my appeal was made, it may be
added that a discussion had arisen regard
ing the relations of science with what was
lield by many persons to be occult and in
explicable phenomena, including not only
the nsuscitatioi of buried fakirs, but the
participation" of tbeosophical bodies and
In the attitude of a scientific skeptic, I
maintained that it was unsafe to assume
the inexplicable theory of matters until we
had exhausted the probabilities which lie
at our doors, and I said the same thins
concerning a 'iiooin" iu ghosts and ghost
Hoeing. Most things come to those who
live loti enough to wait, and after the
receipt of many letters regarding Indian
jugglery I have at lat been favored with
what I venture to think is the true cxpln
nation of the mango trick. This trick coii
aists in the jn.'ler tiitixin"; a mango plant
to prow out of a pot containing earth,
amid which n mangoseed has been planted.
As far a I can discover, there exist vari
ous modilical ions of the trick, for some of
my correspondents declare that it is not a
mango which grows out of the pot, but
only a branch of some tree which the jug
gler has plucked oIT close by the scene of
lis operations. The typical trick, how
ever, shows a mango plant growing bit by
bit as the jticslcr performs, and I fhink we
have arrived nt the secret of the operation
My present correspondent writes to me
from the far of! Noumea, New Caledonia.
AN EXHIBITION OK THE THICK.
He is an old Anglo-Indian, writing with
l full experience of what ho has seen, and,
wthe sequel will show, speaking with the
authority of one who has been behind the
scenes. Me does not agree wit h the expla
nation of llerr Hermann, who said the
growing plant trick was performed through
the performer concealing the pot, with the
plant in it, under his robe.
In 1S5. my correspondent was on the
point of leaving Calcutta, when some na
tive jugglers came on board the steamship
to give n exhibition of their powers. The
surroundings were thus very favorable for
the performance of anything but a very
dexterous trick, and the mango exhibition
was given ou the bare deck. The performer
was utmost naked, so there was no oppor
tunity for the concealment of a flower pot
under a robe. He placed before him first
of all a small, flat, native wickcrwork
basket, such as snakes are carried in.
This was filled with earth. A mango seed
was then produced.
It was a very large one a point, this, of
importance in view of. what follows ana
was duly placed in the earth and covered
;ip. The earth was watered and the basket
; its turn concealed by a small cotton
doth. Then began the usual mutterings
and incantations, while the earth was again
vprinkled with water and stirred with the
fingers of the operator. ,fr,er a few min
utes' interval the juggler lifted the cloth
and showed to the spectators two small
mango leaves appearing above the surface
f the earth.
The basket was once more covered up,
the watering of the earth and the incanta
tions proceeded, and in a short time, when
WJ, was nunoTpd. 1i.TO fllRB.
seven or e ght inches high and bearing four
or five lea ves. was disclosed to view. After
another ii'terval a seedling mango appeared
at least thirteen inches high and bearing
seven or eight leaves. Here the perform
ance ended, my correspondent adding that
he did not see the fruit produced, although
in somecises, it is said, the jugglers under
take to bi ing the fruit itself into equally
6ECRET OF THE THICK.
Curiosity was rife, of course, regarding
the juggler's modus operandi, and my oor
responder ft, anxious to know how the trick
was performed, offered the juggler a good
round suia of money for the disclosure of
his secret After some hesitation the man
consented to reveal his art, stipulatingthat
his re vela lion should be conducted in a se
cluded sp it. A cabin on the ship wus of
fered and accepted as a suitable place, and
the juggl'-r and my correspondent retired
thereto. The basket was prepared as be
fore, and the mango seed was handed
around. It was, as before, a large one.
Oil its being returned to the juggler he
pressed oi,e end of the seed with his long
linger na 1, when the seed opened. Two
small le.-n es, those first seen in the deck
trick, were withdrawn from the seed, and
next in order came forth the stem with
fourleavis. Ultimately the full thirteen
inches of : he plant were manipulated out
of the seed before the eyes of the specta
tors. Tin seed was in fact a "hollow one,
and the young plant had been dexterously
folded wit hiu its compass. It is the art of
folding the plant inside the seed which
constiuiU s the essence of .the trick.
My correspondent added that he has re
peated tin trick since, and a simple ex
periment shows how ils conditions can be
realized. Most leaves can be so folded
that when liberated from pressure they
spring ba k to their original shape. The
folding, h iwever, must lie done in a special
and caref il manner. The upper surface
of the leaf must le folded on itself, and
that surface sKillfullv treated and watered
will scarcely show a crease on a superficial
The creising which the under surface
will show is of course concealed from the
spectator' -i view. If the fruit is produced
in the course of the trick, my correspondent
conjectuns, it also is contained in the liol
low seed. Itisnkelyto be a very small
mango, which is packed in a dry state, and
which, un ler the watering process, swells
out to coi siderable proportions. Dr. An

What are Krause's Headache Capsules?
To be brief will tell jou they are unlike
anjtbiiig prepared in America. A few
5ears since an acquaintance who for years
had been a headache sullerer, until his
system had been ruined, was advised to
po to the Carlsbad Springs, Germany, to
try the effects of the water. While the
waters were apparently a benefit, still
they were not a cure. While at the springs
be heard a great deal about the court
physician, Dr. Krause, who attewards
became famous the world over owing to
the Mackenzie controversy durinsr and
after the last illness of emperor William.
lie consulted Krause in regard to his
heacache, and to quote the doctors words:
'Here is a prescription which if taken
as I direct, will prevent or slop any kind
of headache, do matter what the cause.
You will find the frequency of the at
tacks will diminish aad by taking the
capsules when you feel the approach of a
Dead acne you will never nave another.
The patient was practically cured and
with his permission I prepare,' and sell
what I bave seen fit to call Krause's
Headache Capsules to headache victims.
