** THOUGHT READING BLINDFOLDED ”

Here is a trick which will, I think, prove a most puzzling

one. You will require a friend to do it with you. After

explaining that your two minds are tuned into one another—

that what your friend sees you can see, even if blindfolded—

invite anyone in 'he room to blindfold you so that it is

imporsible for you to see.

W hen this has been done, ask members of your audience

to place a halfpenny, a penny, a three-penny bit, a sixpence,

a shilling, a two shilling piece and a half-crown on the table.

Your confrere is seated at the table, and you are stand­

ing behind him with your fingers just touching his temples.

Invite any member of the audience to touch any coin— you

at once say which one it is.

S E C R E T : This is quite simple, as you have both

arranged that the halfpenny is one, the penny two, the three­

penny bit three, and so on. A s soon as the coin is touched,

your fiiend will press his upper and lower teeth together

the required number of times. This will not be noticed, but

will cause the temple to throb. I f you feel one throb you

know it is the halfpenny— two throbs, the penny, etc. Go

ahead and fool ’em.

“ A LITTLE JOKE WITH FIGURES”

Pass your friend a piece of paper and a pencil and

ask him to write down eleven thousand eleven hundred and

eleven Y ou will get some curious solutions to this puzzle,

bul, of course, the answer is

12 , 111 .

“ HOW TO TELL A LADY’S AGE ”
There is no need to use this trick with anyone over 80

years of age as all shyness as to age will have passed by then.

Needless to say, you do not tell the lady that the trick

is to ascertain her age. I f you did she might show you one

of her tricks when writing down the figures.

Just ask her to write down the number of the month

she was born in (January is one, February is two, March is

three, and so on), then request her to multiply that figure by

two, then add five, then multiply by 50, then add her age.

'Then to subtract 365 and afterwards to add 115. W hen

she gives you the answer the two figures on the right will be

her oge, and the remaining figure or figures will represent

the month in which she was born. For example, if the answer

is 1126, you will know at once that she was born in the

11th month (November) and is 26 years old. I f it is 321,

you will know she is 21 and was born in March.

“ A THOUGHT-READING CATCH ”

Take two small pieces of paper and pass one to a mem­

ber of the company and hold the other one so that when you

write on it, those near you cannot see what you are writing.

Ask the person who has the other piece of paper to

first write down any day of the week, and when he has

finished, ask him to think hard of the day he has written.

W hilst he is so doing you must pretend to be concen­

trating very hard, and then you write something on your

piece of.paper (taking care nobody sees what you write).

Now ask him to write any month of the year, then

think hard again— now to write in figures of any year, and

think harder than ever. Each time you write something on

your piece of paper.
