Lastly, the surefire final word on the page. Here you cannot go wrong as it is one word only. Tell him to look once more at the last word then to close the book and lay it on the floor. Tell him to concentrate on this word ONLY—nothing more. Write it on your slate and hand the slate to him saying, "1 have written one word on that slate, I want you to turn it round and show it to the audience, but before you do so—don't look—will you please call out loud the word you thought of! He calls out "revolutionary" turns the slate and all see the word "Revolutionary" written baldly across your slate Another miracle is done! • *
