To Perform

When door is closed assistant turns with his side to front. Fig. 13. In this manner he can avoid the metal bars going through the cabinet. The body is much narrower from the side than the front. Bars are thrust in routine order through the holes from back to front and front to back. If you have another, so much the better, as one can stand on one side and the other on the other side. After a few bars have been pushed into cabinet up through central portion, apparently driving through upper body, the cabinet is turned with side to audience so audience can see bars entering one

side and going out the other. Assistant inside box can help direct the bars.

The cabinet is brought forward. Door is opened. Assistant enters cabinet and stands facing audience, Figure 12. In entering he should step in backwards and not allow himself to turn with his side to cabinet. He can have his side turned to audience away from cabinet but not in front of same. You must create the idea that performer practically fills the cabinet. There must be no side comparison. Performer himself must also be careful of this.

The door is closed and held tight by means of catch on side of box and on door. Door can be hooked. Just

something so that door will not accidentally open.

After all bars are in cabinet, revolve the cabinet.

Then remove the bars as speedily as possible. When bars are removed, assistant inside turns with body facing front door as in Fig. 12. The door is opened, Fig. 12, and assistant steps from box unharmed. Close door, move cabinet back out of way.

Practice will enable you to pierce the box with bars very rapidly, which is essential so as not to slow down the illusion.

A girl assistant with tights and trunk with fancy upper garment can be used instead of male assistant if desired, in which case, cabinet can be built even smaller, depending on the size of the girl.
