Excerpt from Sleights The performer standing two or three feet from his spectators (or even among them) plainly exhibits each card on both sides and has his hands thoroughly examined, there being no rings on his fingers. The cards are then placed on his right palm and arranged in the form of a star, as in illustration No. 1. Turning the hand over, the cards cling to the hand as if magnetized, as in illustration No. 2. The perform'er walks down through the spectators, freely per mitting persons to examine the cards and hand while the cards are clinging to the hand, and allows them to pass their hands over the cards to prove that hairs, threads, etc., are not present. The performer then removes the cards and again exhibits his hands and the cards, showing each card separately on both sides.
