Magic tricks are demonstrated then their secrets are revealed.
Magic tricks. Introductory intertitle reads: "Men, they say, were deceivers ever...anyhow, this one is - so watch closely. He's a Conjuror."
C/U of a magician in a black suit with waistcoat and bow tie. He performs various tricks. Making a handkerchief disappear and reappear. He ties two handkerchiefs together then they miraculously come untied. We see the tricks in C/U - we are shown how they are done. (The Magic Circle would not be pleased!) We see how he manages to pull the knot apart as it has not been tied as tightly as it seemed.
