In The Beginning

Page 458

Before starting preparation applies to one card in the deck. It should be a prominent one, such as the Ace of Clubs or Spades, for such cards can be seen and instantly recognised at a good distance. This card is made a "short" one by trimming from each end a half moon. The cutting should start at i inch from each side and at its deepest point (center of the end) be not more than l/16th of an inch. Such a "short" card does not require tapping of the deck to shift a straight cut "short" to one end so that it may be found by riffling at the other end.

The other requisites will be mentioned as the separate effects are covered, and, after all is said and done, the necessary bits of preparations and adjuncts will be tabulated as a whole. Credits shall optimistically be attempted also.
