Here This Evening
Now you see it, now you
don't, is or ought to be the slo
gan of the entertainment Wal
lace, the magician, gives ' in
Memorial Hall on August 25.
The wizard of a thousand
tricks is said to be able to whisk
realities from before the eyes
of his audience to the utter con
fusion of all understanding.
It is one thing to be able to
perform magical illusions and
another to put them over. Wal
lace's talk is gentle and enter
taining. He smiles and cracks
jokes while he is vvanishing;" a
lamp, or making a .wooden hand
talk, or finding a white rabbit
under the coat of some dignified
gentleman in the audience.
