Pick up handkerchief and glass with right hand, and at same time pick up iron weight with left hand and place it in your left trouser's pocket. This move will not be noticed for the leaning of the body makes such a movement appear natural. Also you are using MISDIRECTION— directing the attention of the audience to the handkerchief and glass. Figure 40, next page.
Have table set as in Figure 39. FORCE cards you desire selected as above. Have them returned to pack. Place pack on the prepared cards already on table.
Proceed to wipe glass as before and place it on table. Pick up the deck and place it in glass, faces of cards toward audience.
Now stand far enough away from table to make thread taut. Move your body slightly and the pull on the string will cause the first threaded card to rise. You may make a movement of your hands toward cards to cover your body movement, or gesture with right hand and push left hand against thread. Figure 41.
This is a popular method when magician carries an assistant with him. In this case, thread is passed through the staple on back of table and then to floor where it is passed through a second staple. Figure 42.
Thread is then stretched across stage to wings where an assistant holds it and causes cards to rise. Figure 43.
IN PERFORMING THESE RISING CARD EXPERIMENTS, REMEMBER NATURALNESS IN YOUR MOVES. THERE MUST BE NO SUGGESTION OF PULLING.
