C) eople show an unreserved interest in this m effect - it looks unique. Then, too, it is in that class of "visible" card magic which enjoys a popularity with the layman.

The magus shuffles a deck of cards, divides it into halves, and turns one half face up. The two halves are inter-shuffled and the deck then given to someone who further mixes the face-ups with the face-downs to his heart's content.

The trickster takes back the deck and spreads it for a selection of a face-down card, for, as he says, "I otherwise would see what card you might take and know its identity." The spectator notes his card, returns it to the deck, and all of the pasteboards are given out for a further shuffle.

The magician takes back the deck, places it
