A piece of fairly soft white clothesline, about seven and a half feet long, is freely shown. The two ends are tied together in a knot to form a "mystic Hindu circle." A spectator is given a pair of scissors and is asked to cut the rope in the center opposite the knotted ends. The rope is cut and the cut ends are held far apart. To make sure that the rope has been cut, a piece is cut from each of the two ends. The two cut ends are placed together, part of the rope wrapped around the left hand, and a magic ring applied to the rope. The rope is then removed from left hand and shown to be completely restored again to the mystic circle, as in the beginning. Performer then states that perhaps there are a few in the audience who do not know how the mystery is done. He asks spectator to cut the rope again in the middle and to cut a piece again from one of the ends to make sure the rope is cut. The two ends are then tied together in a knot. Magician now holds rope with knots at opposite ends. He cuts off one of the knots, then passes his hands over the two ends and touches them with magic ring. Suddenly the rope is restored. Performer now unties knot at original ends of rope. Two spectators are asked to pull on rope to show it is whole, and then rope is thrown out to audience for examination.
