L/S's of an illusionist (his first name is John). He holds up a handkerchief with a skull and crossbones on it. He then slowly turns it around and with a sudden quick movement shakes his hand to reveal another. He then demonstrates how the trick is done which involves having the second hanky tucked up inside the lower part of his jacket. He then goes onto explain another trick which involves a sugar cube and engraving a friend's initials onto it.
