6 a club of magic

6 a club of magic to a spectator to write down the number and also initial it. Before taking it back, pick up a pack of cigarettes, one of which has been faked with a duplicate bill and resealed. Open, or allow someone to break the seal, and remove the prepared cigarette. Hold it while someone initials the tobacco end and place in the mouth. Now take the bill back and use the slit envelope into which it is placed. The bill goes to the left trouser pocket as you take out the match and light the cigarette and then the envelope. Finally, the cigarette is checked for mark, broken open and the bill handed to the MAN WHO MARKED THE CIGARETTE to call off the number and the first person says it is correct. At this point pick up a tray of three lemons, one of which has another duplicate inside. Have another spectator take any two of the lemons and if he leaves the right one behind tell him to keep them as souvenirs and to hold the tray with other lemon on it. If he takes the right lemon among the two tell him to hand you one and if he hands you the right one toss it to someone to hold high in the air. If he keeps the right one, let him hold it high.

Vanish the bill again to suit yourself but in a different manner. I suggest the same cigarette pull used in the Dixie vanish preceding this. The bill when folded and rolled can be jammed right in on top of the cigarette already there.

Now take the lemon, cut it open and find the bill. THE MAN WHO HELD THE LEMON CALLS THE NUMBER AND AGAIN THE FIRST MAN CHECKS IT AS CORRECT.

For the last vanish have fastened to your inside coat pocket the regulation wallet for the now common "Card in Wallet" effect. Hold the folded bill (not folded as small as before though) in left hand and cover it with your pocket handkerchief. The handkerchief has been faked by sewing into the hem a folded paper to resemble the feel of a bill.

The left fingers, going up under the handkerchief in the right hand, carry up the faked corner which spectator holds. You first take hold of (apparently) the bill through the handkerchief with the right fingers on the outside and as you hand it to the spectator to grasp, the left hand, with the bill, goes to the pocket and brings out the wallet. Snap the rubber band around it to show it quite secure, and place it in the spectator's
