Sharing The Art of Magic


Some day, however, we hope that even the man in the street will have learned the fact that so-called “secrets” are, to the magician, little more than are, to the actor, the wigs, grease-paints and other “make- ups” with which he prepares himself for appearance before the public. The art of the magician, like that of the actor, depends upon matters far higher than mere appliances and processes.
