The Wandering Handkerchief

This experiment permits of good SHOWMANSHIP. It is worked under seemingly impossible conditions with a member from the audience watching you closely. And yet it is easy to do and very effective.


A spectator comes up from the audience to assist performer. Magician turns both trousers' pockets inside out and shows them empty. Spectator also feels in pockets to make sure there is no mechanical arrangements in them. Slowly Magician places a red silk in his right pocket, then reaches into his left pocket and brings out the same silk. Both pockets are again shown empty and performer's hands are shown to conceal nothing. Silk is replaced in left pocket and is again pulled out of right pocket. Once more red silk is replaced in right pocket and appears in left. Assistant is now requested to tie a knot in the silk. It is placed in pocket. A moment later it is withdrawn, and it has untied itself—the knot is gone. Finally red silk is placed in pocket again and is pulled out by spectator. This time it has mysteriously turned to blue. Pockets are still empty.
