Have tip in left pocket. Get tip onto left thumb and conceal as in Position A above. Borrow a piece of lighted cigarette as in effect described before.

Manipulate thumb tip to Position D. Casually show left hand. Hold the cigarette with thumb and forefinger of right hand.

Get tip onto thumb again—Position A. Bring thumb up and point hand towards audience, end of thumb foremost. This convinces audience that hand is empty.

Close hand quickly, bending thumb and getting tip to Position D again. Withdraw thumb. To audience it looks as though empty hand was closed.

Drop cigarette into left hand, tucking it in with right thumb. This puts fire of cigarette out and allows you to remove tip on right thumb.

Show right hand empty, tip of thumb pointed toward audience. Reach into vest pocket for the Magic Sand, leaving tip in pocket. Sprinkle imaginary sand over left hand.

Open left hand slowly—the cigarette has vanished.

Study the first effect, MYSTERY OF THE BURNING CIGARETTE, and model your presentation of this second effect upon that, using the same patter where appropriate.
