Pull the ball through the top of "A," showing the one palmed, and pass it into "C," which raise showing the three balls. Replace "C," by the side of the balls, secretly Introducing under it the one from the palm. This leaves three balls lying openly on the table while, unbeknown to the spectators, there is still one under each cup.

9.- COMBINATION PASS WITH SIX BALLS (1)- Starting with a ball concealed under each cup and one in front of each on the table. Take up the center ball and pass it invisibly Into "B." Raise

"B" with the right hand (to show the ball) and place It over "A," secretly introducing the palmed ball between the two. Take up another ball and pass It between "A" and "B," raising the latter to show the ball and secretly Introducing the one palmed. Repeat the pass with another ball, raise "B," showing the two already there, and again secretly inserting the third. Repeat with the remaining ball, then raise "B" showing three.

Drop "B" over "C," secretly introducing the palmed ball between them. Remove the three balls from "A" and place on table; take one of them and pass It Into "A," raise the cup (to show the ball) and place It over "B," secretly introducing the ball from palm, three balls still in view on the table; vanish these by one or other of the methods already described, then unstack the cups, finding a ball beneath each.

10.- COMBINATION PASS WITH SIX BALLS (2)- Proceed exactly as in the first half of Pass No.9 above,i.e., up to the moment of discovering the three balls on the top of "A."

Replace "B" over the three balls on "A;" draw one through the top of "B," (the one palmed) and pass it through "C," raising the cup, showing the one there all along and secretly introducing the palmed ball. Command another ball to pass from between "A" and "B," downwards into "A"; lift the two cups and pick up the ball. Pass this into "C," raising the latter, showing the two already there, and again secretly Inserting the ball from the palm. Command the third ball to pass from between "A" and "B" into "C," raising the latter, showing the three balls and replacing the cup on the top of the other two. Now execute the "Galloping Post" (sleight 8) to prove the cups empty, finally replacing them on the table In line A-B-C, the three duplicate balls being under "B."

11.- PASSING THE THREE BALLS UNDER CENTER CUP, SECRETLY LEAVING A BALL UNDER EACH.- Seem to place one of the visible balls in the left hand (palming it in the right), throwing it thence under "B." Take up another in the left hand, which seems to transfer it to the right hand, palming it in transit, that already palmed in the right hand being shown. Seem to throw the ball from the right hand into "B," palming it. There is now a ball palmed in each hand. The two end cups are here raised, one in each hand, accompanied with the remark,"The balls are passing through the middle cup, these two are empty"; replace the two cups, secretly introducing under each a ball.

Take up the remaining ball and pass it into "B," which then raise, showing the three; replace the cup by the side of the three balls, secretly Introducing under it the one from the palm. This leaves a ball under each cup.

12.- PASS TO DISPOSE OP TWO BALLS.- Starting with a ball under and one on the top of each cup. Take up the ball from "C" and pass it into that cup, raising the latter, showing the duplicate ball, and meanwhile disposing of the one from the palm. Repeat with the ball from "B." Repeat with the ball from "A," but instead of disposing of It, secretly insert it beneath the cup when returning the latter to the table. There are now three balls on the table and one under "A," I.e., as when performing with three balls and one duplicate.

13.- CHANGING THE COLOR OP THE BALLS UNDER THE CUPS.- Pass No.12 leaves three balls on the table, and one (a black one) under "A." The performer now, by sleight of hand or otherwise, changes two of the visible black balls to Red and White respectively, placing the Red in front of "A," the white in front of "B," and the black in front of "C." Taking up the red ball, he makes believe to pass it through "A," forthwith raising "B" with the remark "Nothing under this cup," and secretly introducing the red ball beneath It. The white ball Is then apparently passed through "B." after which "C" is raised with the remark, "And nothing under this one"; cup replaced over the white ball. Black ball is now apparently passed through "C," being dropped into pocket or on to servante. There is now apparently, a -

Red under "A." White under "B." Black under "C." Balls are commanded to change places; cups raised, showing -

Black under "A." Red under "B." White under "C."

EXTRA PASSES WITH THREE BALLS AND A DUPLICATE. (Jinx 43-page 293)

10.- TO PASS A BALL UNDER EACH CUP.- At the close of the Multiplication Pass (No.9-page 293) when a number of balls are supposed to be In a hat, there Is also, unknown to the audience, a ball under each cup.

Pretend to take one out of the hat, showing the palmed ball, when then seem to pass into "A." Pretend to take another ball from the hat (the same one, of course), and pass it into "B." ®ien place a ball on the top of each cup.

11.- TO DRAW TWO BALLS THROUGH THE SAME CUP. Following on the last pass and announcing that he will employ only two balls, the performer takes up the one from "C." in the right hand, and pretends to return it to the hat, really palming it. He then takes up the ball from "B" in the left hand, at the same time and with the right hand, he places "C" over "B," introducing the palmed ball between the two cups.

Take the ball from "A" in the right hand, and, showing the two, remark, "Here you see two balls." Pretend to place both under "A," palming one. Pretend to draw one out through the top of the oup, showing the one from the palm and placing it on top of the other two cups. Raise "A" and remark, "That leaves only one." Seem to replace the ball under "A," palming it. Again seem to draw the ball through the cup, showing the palmed ball and turning over the cup that it may be seen to be empty. Pretend to return the ball to the hat, palming it. This pass, which apparently leaves one ball only in play, the one on the top of the two cups, is specially arranged as a prelude to the next.

12.- TO »UiJiS iHE SAitE BALL PASS SUCCESSIVELY THROUGH THE THREE CUPS.- Take the visible ball in the left hand and remark, "I shall not show you a very pretty and interesting triok with this one ball." Place the odd cup over the other two, introducing the palmed ball under it. Pass the visible ball through the top cup, lift the same to show the ball already there, then replace it on the table with the palmed ball under it. Continue, "I take this same ball (the one on the top of the two cups) and pass It through the next cup." Repeat the operation, replacing "B" on the table with the palmed ball under it. Once more say, "I take the ball again and throw it through the remaining cup." Again repeat the operation, finally replacing "C" on the table with the palmed ball under it. The above, apparently, leaves one ball only in play. This could be proved, if desired, by dropping the balls on to the servante or into a pocket, instead of secretly placing them one under each cup.

13.- TO PASS THE BALLS THROUGH TWO CUPS. Raise "C" with the right hand, taking up the ball in the left. Cover "C" with "B,w introducing the palmed ball between them. Tourniquet from left and seem to throw the ball between the two cups» Raise "B" with the left hand, showing the ball already there and secretly Introducing the second. Take up the ball from the table and pass It between the two cups; raise "B," showing two and secretly introducing the third. Raise "A" in the left hand and openly take up the ball in the right. Place "A" over the other two, then pass the ball through the two upper cups, then lift both together, showing the three balls. Replace the two cups over the three balls.

14.- TO DRAW OUT THREE BALIS THROUGH TWO CUPS.- Following the last pass. Seem to draw a ball through the two upper cups, reproducing that palmed at the finger tips and pretending to put it in your pocket, palming it. Repeat with the second and third balls, finally leaving the ball in the pocket. Take up the three cups together in the left hand, then, with the right hand, separate them quickly as in the "Galloping Post," placing all three in line on the table, the balls remaining tinder center one.

15.- TO PASS THREE BALIS THROUGH A CUP AT ONE STROKE.- Remove three balls from the pocket, apparently the three drawn through the cups in the last pass, and place all on the top of "B," which cover with "A." Command the ball3 to pass through the lower cup, then lift both together, in the left hand, showing the three duplicates, yuickly replace "B" on the table over the other three balls.

Again place the three balls on the top of "B," covering them with the other two cups. Command them to pass downwards as before, then raise all three cups in the left hand, showing the three balls on the table. Conclude with the "Galloping Post" to prove the cups empty.

Vanish the three visible balls (you may seem to pass them upwards through the table, leaving them on the servante or In a pocket), then once more discover them under, between, or one In each of the cups, as already described.
