1--A piece of red tissue paper about twelve inches square is examined and rolled into a ball. This is given to a spectator to hold. Performer now asks several members of the audience to write any numbers of three digits each on a card. Another spectator is requested to add these and call out the total. Performer then says he will transfer this number to the ball of tissue paper. The ball is unrolled and there is found the number called out.
2--A piece of examined paper is placed in an empty envelope by a member of the audience. The envelope is sealed and given to a spectator to hold. Performer takes a card and writes on it numbers called out by several spectators. These are added together. Envelope is torn open and the numbers of the sum are found to be cut out of the paper.
3--Two envelopes are shown empty. On one is written the word Bank. Performer borrows a dollar bill, telling owner to remember number on it, and puts bill in the envelope marked Bank. He gives this envelope to a spectator to hold. Magician writes a check for a dollar, places it in the other envelope, and gives this to another spectator. Performer shows how rapid banking can be done and checks cashed without bothering anyone. The two envelopes are opened and the check and the bill are found to have changed places.
