The secret of a magic trick is shown to the viewer by the conjuror Percy Rossiter.
"Here's a little trick" said Mr Percy Rossiter, the Conjuror, "to try on your friends at the next party.." M/S of Mr Rossiter - a magician - who has very exaggerated eyebrows and a Charlie Chaplin style moustache. He holds out his hands and does a trick involving two handkerchiefs. He makes them disappear. He pretends that they have flown away and that he then catches them again. "And now just to show you how easily you can do it yourselves - when you get home. (using only a hollow ball and a piece of fine flesh-coloured thread.)" C/U of magicians hands to show how the trick was done.
