Gene Grant
Phantini's Contact by Gene Grant

There was something peculiar about Dora, who lived in the old mansion at the top of the hill. Some say she could communicate with the dead and make humans do things against their will.

Dr. Q's Want Ad Test

Claude Alexander Conlin
Dr. Q's Want Ad Test by Claude Alexander Conlin

Here's Alexander's own method of a stage mentalism feat that borders on genuine clairvoyance. You, too, can be "The Man Who Knows!"

A spectator selects a page of classified ads from among several in the newspaper and perhaps a hundred individual ads are cut out. Half a dozen spectators assist by folding the ads in half and placing them on a tray or table. From among the ads, thirteen are selected at random (a true free choice) and each is inserted into a standard drug or coin envelope and sealed. Note that the performer does not assist in the folding, inserting or sealing operation.

Once in a blue moon there comes an outstanding and fiendishly clever psychic routine, such as "The Astounding Prediction Reading" by Dr. A.

An ideal lesson and source book for obtaining information on acquiring show skills.

Audiences love show stunts, such as juggling, balance feats, acrobatic demonstrations, and the like. They appreciate the level of skill and dedication that these artists possess.

Because these acts are somewhat of a novelty, they fit in well with other entertainments, making an extravaganza that is a...

Dantes devoted his life to "sight reading" and is regarded as a most successful reader. If you want to devastate a total stranger by...

Now you, too, can present this award-winning silk routine in your show.

Here is a beautiful routine using two sets of three silk scarves that magically knot and unknot themselves "in sympathy" with each other ... even from across the stage. Best of all, you can do this with your own silks, as they contain no hidden pockets, sewn-together pairs, or similar fekes.

Edward Proudlock's Sympathetic Silks are a joy to behold, no less to the magician than to the uninitiated beholder. That it was a feature of Proudlock's act for 15 years is a testament as to its beauty and strength. Anyone who...

Blindfold Message Reading by Robert A. Nelson & B. W. McCarron

Arguably the most convincing - and simple - means of performing a sealed billet reading act.

There has always been a consistent demand for a good billet reading routine that can be presented under practically any circumstance, yet has sufficient effectiveness to accomplish its purpose. This method, we feel, meets these requirements most effectively. The means of presentation are varied and elastic. For instance, unprepared envelopes and slips of paper are passed to spectators to write their questions and name thereon. These are folded by any spectator and sealed within the envelopes. The...
