The routine described will be found a thoroughly practical one, and it is one with which the originator has had conspicuous success. All the moves have been given in detail, supplemented by numerous illustrations, and it is hoped that the reader will experience no difficulty in following the various descriptions.
The routine is outlined in two parts. The first part, for the purpose of analysis, has been divided into separate “sleights” – these are very varied, some being of short duration and others correspondingly longer. Although this has been done it may perhaps be pointed out that the sleights proceed naturally, one upon the other, with sufficient pause between for the spectators to be able easily to follow exactly the effects taking place. Thus it will be found that at the end of any particular sleight the performer is in the correct position to continue with the next.
