Only 4 mental effects are explained by Grant in this old manuscript but they are really strong ones.
Read carefully the effects:
- Watch Reading Test: Any three people take ordinary watches to a far corner and set them at any hour, minute and second desired, then seal them in small boxes. These are hung or placed anyplace and you can tell the exact hour, minute and second on each one.
- Card & Boards Test: Any number of sealed decks that have never been opened are given to committee. They select any deck, break seals and shuffle same and remove any ten cards and seal them nailing between two boards and you are able to name the ten cards…A great effect.
- Bill & Glass of Water: Several drinking glasses, unprepared…They select any one and pour water in same and taste it. They select anyone to take out a bill and seal it in a heavy brown manila envelope… such as a pay envelope. Now anyone gazes in the glass of water and is able to give the serial numbers on the bill. The glass is again examined. Important: it is the spectator itself that seal and retrieve the bill in the envelope.
- $ 500 Letter Reading Test – Grant says "This I can truly say is the best mental test idea I have ever developed. The last word in mystery and test has proven it so…"
For every effect Grant gives alternative handlings, variations and tips. A great manuscript.

I have always been a fan of UF Grant. This little manuscript is a steal for the price. There are some good ideas looking to be updated and fine tuned. All four routines are good but my favorites are the watch routine and the bill divination.
