Lighted Candles

Continued from Page 113).

The candles for the final reproduction are lying on the servante and the silks are placed on the table in an accessable position to them. When the silks are finally picked up, the hand aiso grasps the candles which are concealed by the silks until the appropriate moment. If, as advised only two candles are used, the reproduction candles can consist of two half-shells 'hinged' together with stout tape glued securely to each shell. The gap between the two candles needs to be about f" to ¥' so that the first and second finger of the right hand can hold them conveniently. The tape "hinge" should be on the lower sections of the two shells.

The two half-shells are picked up as one and concealed in this way until the moment for their reproduction. The thumb then makes a sweeping movement towards the second finger, grasps the haif-shell nearest to it, and draws it back to the extended position. You now have what appear to be two candles, one between the first and second finger, and the other between the first finger and the thumb.

If two half-shells are used, the silks can be dispensed with as a means to reproduction of the candles. Simply palm the closed shells and, with a sweeping movement, produce the candles from the air.

The GOLDEN SPIDER

A New Exclusive Children's Trick. AT LAST A TRICK FOR THE VERY YOUNG.

All performers doing Children's Shows know how difficult it is to get something that will be easy enough for the very youngest to follow yet sufficiently intriguing for those a little older. Well here it is, a pretty trick, charming in conception, with a realistic story and a surprise finish.

.It's really beaut.fully made too, and you can actually do it as soon as you receive it.

A large frame (approx. 13" sq.) which is The Spider's House, is shown all round, and sitting in the centre of his invisible web ,s the Golden Spider. (Photo 1.) The Spider is taken and placed on the palm of the hand for he w II never move when the light is on him. He is very clever and well trained, as the ch Idren will see

You now place him back in his house and cover it with a screen. Then a box with balls of differently coloured wools is shown and the children have to shout RED . . . VERY LOUDLY. (This can be repeated). Eventually he finds it and gets to work, and the performer gives a runn ng commentary of what is happening behind the screen! At last you remove the screen.

THERE IN THE FRAME IS A RED SPIDER'S WEB, WITH THE GOLDEN SPIDER SITTING IN THE MIDDLE OF IT ! (Photo 3).

THE RED BALL OF WOOL HAS VANISHED ! !

Fascinating story with full patter. Mechanical Action . . . cannot fa'l Very pretty. Beautifully made. The children love it.

Complete in every detail and ready to work at once PRICE

Size about 13 inches square.
