The stage is all set for target practice. The magician
lifts his bow and aims an arrow at the bull's-eye. His
lovely assistant then steps in front of the target and
he shoots the arrow apparently through her- and it
fixes itself in the very center of the bull's-eye ! And
she smiles through it all while the audience gasps.
The arrow which the marksman "shoots through" his
assistant simply folds up into the crossbow ' The
arrow which is actually embedded in the target is shot
by the girl herself from a belt concealed under her
dress. She releases a little spring, the arrow unfolds,
and shoots straight into the bull's-eye ! It is all done in
a flash! So quickly the eye cannot delect the girl's
movements! To heighten the impression that the ar
row has gone right through, the girl releases a ribbon
from the front of her dress the continuation, appar
ently, of the ribbon attached to the arrow in the target.

May we learn with deep contrition
That we are reaping what we've sown.
Star of Hope, may Thy fadeless light
Shine on our people, restless still.
Remove the darkness of the night
Incline them now to do Thy will.
Star of Hope, sinful doubts remove.
Let us all know that Thou art near.
That Thou art guiding from above,
And fill us now with Thy good cheer.
Star of Hope, in tenderness look
On us who've wandered far astray.
Incline us all to heed Thy book
And front our idols turn away.
Star of Hope, our sins we confess
And humbly bow before Thy throne.
Have pity Lord in our distress,
For we are reaping what we've sown.
Star of Hope, we look now lo Thee,
For Thou alone dost have the power
To rescue from a troubled sea.
