will drop it on the table for further use. This Is then done - but the card i3 forced.

HowT The fan is prepared. It is made of two thin cardboards which are stuck together only on the edges leaving a free space between A to B in Fig. 1. This forms a kind of pocket in which the oard to be forced (Fig.l,D) is inserted. These cardboards should be moulded outwards to bulge out a little so that after sticking they stay apart and do not hold the inserted oard which should move freely in the pocket thus formed. The illustrations are made to show how the performer himself sees his left hand holding the fan.

Fig. 1,C is the card dropped on the fan, but not selected by the audience, so the handle is twisted towards the left downwards and towards the audience who see the card falling to the ground, or floor. Continue until they say "stop" and this time you extend your thumb to the card "E" holding it as in Fig. 2. On turning the fan away from the audience the card "D" from the pocket will drop onto the table, the audience thinking it to be their own card as chosen.

Now the balance of the pack in the right hand is placed deliberately on the card "E" and all handed over to an assistant or laid aside on another table. The forced card is in full view where it has been dropped and everything has appeared moat fair.

The chosen (?) card is now exhibited and all people present are asked to concentrate upon it. Then the spectator with the frame stands up and shows that an image has been transmitted. You take the frame from him, giving him the card as a souvenir, take out the backing which you toss carelessly to the table, and then have a person remove the picture from the frame inside himself.
