Diamond Suit, #1 is Ace; #2 is Two of Diamonds, etc. finishing with #13 which is the King of Diamonds.

Club Suit, #14 is the Ace of Clubs; #15 is the Two of Clubs, etc. finishing with #26, which is the King of Clubs.

Heart Suit, #40 is.the Ace of Hearts; #41 is the Two of Hearts, etc. finishing with #52 which is the King of Hearts.

Performer explains this simple order of cards, by relating that when cards were first invented the four suits represented the four seasons of the year. Diamonds (Rose) being Spring, Clubs (Trefoil) the Summer, Spades (Acorn) the Fall, and Hearts (Cup) the Winter. (This ;;,;: crue~in fact, as in Spain this nomenclature still is used). Spectator A, is invited to take sheet of paper (table 1)

while performer retires to further end of the room. From this point he dictates to A, who is provided with paper and pencil what he desires him to do.

He requests A to think of a card and then find it in table #1 in his possession. The number preceding the card is to be put down and multiplied by 33. To this he is told to add the number of the month in which he was born. To this add 7 x 7, or as the performer states the 7 days to the week are influenced by 7 principle planets. These two numbers multiplied make 49 which kindly add to the sum already obtained.

. Next borrowing someone's watch, he tells A to add to the total, the number of minutes or seconds indicated by the watch, and having owner of watch verify same. To the result thus obtained is added A's birthday; that is the day of the month, the number of the month of which he was born, and finally the number of his birth card, which has been told before the experiment. For this purpose A is told to look for his birth card in the Table #.1 and put down the tabulated number.

This having been done, A is requested to divide the total by 52, (the number of weeks in the year). The quotient obtained is to be disregarded, only the remainder to be kept and marked R, so that when Performer has occasion to refer to R later on, the spectator will know what is meant. To R, the gentleman is told to add the hundreds of the year,which for a few years to come will be 19. The result obtained is to be divided by 4 (Four seasons of the year). To the quotient thereby obtained R is to be added. The result of this addition is to be divided by 5 (the number of one's senses).

This will result in a quotient which say is 8 and a remainder, which we suppose is 3. A is requested to take the third card in sign 8 of the Zodiac, and to his utmost astonishment, the spectator finds it to be the very card of which he thought. If a number of persons say 12, each have a different birthday, birth-month, birth-card and thought-card, participate in the experiment and at the end of it, each person finds his card at the place, where the final quotient and remainder indicates, the result will be dumbfounding, especially if they are people above so called ordinary intelligence.

As previously mentioned the pack of cards used is pre-arranged and false shuffled and the single cuts have in no way interfered with the pre-arrangement of the deck as shown in Table 2, which Table now follows:


The Nine of Clubs (face downwards) is the top card of the pack.
