Employing ordinary cards, apparently remove several at random, though the cards selected are spot cards, with ODD values or odd numbers of pips or spots, such as an Ace, Trey, Five, Seven and Nine of C'lubs, Hearts and Spades. The Seven of Diamonds, as we'll as the Six of Clubs, Hearts and Spades. Arrange all of the cards with the pips pointing one way. All Spades, Clubs and Hearts up, or down as the case may be. For instance the Seven of Hearts is easily distinguished by the five pips on one end of the card pointing one way, and two pointing the other way. Shuffle and hold the cards fanwise in your hand, and allow spectator to take one card. While they look at the selected card, turn slightly sidewise, and unbeknown to them, turn your cards end for end. Almost invariably they will replace the card in the deck in the same position as it was withdrawn. Shuffle cards, and look through the cards - you need only find the one card with the pips facing in the opposite direction.
