In this startling trick, the magician seemingly pushes a huge threaded needle through the body of an assistant, pulling the needle out the other side, followed by the thread. BXPLANATIONs Under the clothes of the victim is a pipe, extending around one side of his body from front to back. The needle, which is flexible, is inserted in the front end of the pipe, is carried around the body and emerges from the pipe in back. This operation is per formed so quickly that the audience does not notice that the needle and thread are momentarily shortened during the act. Souses: "Magic Stage Illusions and Scientific Diversions " by Albert A. Hopkins... Munn A Co. ' ir>r It’s fun to be fooled — ...it’s more fun to KNOW We like tricks...but we prefer to keep them out of business. Here’s one that’s interesting...The illusion that by some obscure magic cer tain cigarettes are "cooler" than others. the explanation: Coolness is deter mined by the speed of burning. Fresh cigarettes bum slowly. They’re cool. Parched, dry cigarettes bum fast. They’re hot. Camels are carefully wrapped in moisture-proof cellophane... in the fa mous, air-tight Humidor Pack. Camels are cool because they’re fresh. A cigarette blended from choice non irritating tobaccos also gives a cooler effect than one that is harsh and acrid. The finer the tobacco the less irritating it is, and therefore the “cooler.” It is a fact, well known by leaf tobacco experts, that Camels are made from finer, MORE EXPENSIVE tobaccos than any other popular brand. ^ This is why Camels are cool and mild, non-irritating—full of flavor. This is why Camels have given more pleasure to more people than any other cigarette ever made. It’s the tobacco that counts. Keep the famous welded Humidor Pack on your Camels. It assures you a fresh, cool smoke. _NO TRICKS ..JUST COSTLIER TOBACCOS.
