  • Description

    Several entertaining tricks with ordinary household objects are demonstrated.

    i) How to balance a penny on the edge of a wine glass. C/U of woman's hands as she fixes two forks together by intermeshing their prongs. The penny is held in the teeth of the forks which is then balanced on the edge of the wine glass. ii) Twelve matches are arranged in 4 squares. C/U of the woman moving four matches to make three squares. (I presume that the preceding intertitle is missing.) iii) Taking six matches from fifteen to leave ten. Matches are arranged in a certain pattern whereby when six are taken away the word TEN remains.

    Note: flashframe intertitles.
