In the pile of eleven cards.

The performer now has ths lady count down to the seventh card, place It faoe down, and then has her toss the other tan cards high Into ths air for luck (at this moment switch the tissue ball for the on* prepared.), and than set the paper ball on top of the chosen card. Light a bit of flash paper to Imitate the lightning flash, and bring the trlok to a conclusion.

In the oanter of the duplicate napkin the outline of a oard is Made with the blue pencil and the 40 spots are put In with the red penoil. It is a good idea to Jot down the numbers 7 and 11 at the corners of the outline made by the spectator. You do this, and mention that these two numbers always 'rare marked down by the old witch when she wanted ths spirits to give her a sign. Nfcurally you have made up your duplicate to coincide with this, and the audience will be sure to remember such little details afterward s.

Other patter suggestions: Make special mention of the faot that the dlfferenoe between the numbers 7 and 11 is 4. And that the old wltoh believed four to be the luckiest number of all. Say that red and blue are the lucky colors. That the blood of a bat was used to write the red colors. That blue-berry juice was used by the wltoh for the blue colors. That the quill of a poroupine was used by the witch for writing. At the ooncluaIon give the girl the paper with the card outline upon it for a souvenir. Tell her, with clear conscience, that it will be her "good luck charm" for llfs.
