A Bagful Of Tricks
Magic is all about a tricks. Tender heart boys always fail to understand this trick and considered it to be real. Let us find out how this trick takes away a little boysí heart in Magician party.
By the time every lad had lost his shirt at least a couple of times, the boys were ready for another trick. Gray appeared with three paper rings of identical size which hung over his left arm. "These," he said, "are magic Hindu rings. As you see they are all the same size but I will cut them in such a way that one will become two rings, another will be one long ring, and the third will make two linking rings."
He then took the first ring from his arm and cut around the ring as near the center as possible. This made two complete rings: all very simple and easy to understand.
The second ring he removed from his arm and cut exactly as he did the first, but it made one long ring. The boys began to sit up and take notice.
The last ring he cut exactly in the same way as the others, but it turned out to be a ring within a ring. Immediately the boys were clamoring to be in on the know-how, so Gray explained.
Using an ordinary funny paper so as to have bright-colored rings, he cut three strips four inches wide the full length of the longest way of the newspaper. He then pasted the two ends of one strip together the flat way that is, when the ends were pasted together it made a plain circle or ring. This is the ring that makes two plain rings when cut.
For the second ring the one that turns into one long ring when cut make one turn in the paper before pasting the ends together flat wise.
For the third ring the one that makes a ring within a ring make a double twist in the paper before pasting together. When Gray hung these rings over his arm the twists in the paper were not noticeable.
Before the evening was over each lad present had not only tried all the stunts the boys had prepared but had shown at least a trick or two of his own.
Tales of tricks and mystery continued as the boys sat around the table consuming huge squares of gingerbread with mounds of whipped cream. On the top side of each marshmallow, dropped into a cup of hot cocoa, was a face outlined with melted chocolate. Immediately each lad named his marshmallow for his best pal; John, Tom, or what has you. The departing boys claimed this party was "A bagful of tricks."
Perhaps, a magicianís party has always been a favorite party among all the parties. Its takes them to a new fantasy world.
