## Amusing Card Tricks

Proceed by next beginning with the row next to the one from which
you took the last card or the king, and take the eight; from the
next row take the four; from the next the ace; from the next the
knave. These cards make up 13. Therefore say, 8 and 4 are 12
and 1 are 13--knave.

>From the next row to that whence you took the knave, take the
seven; from the next row take the five; from the next the queen.
These cards make up 12. Thus, 7 and 5 are 12--queen.

It thus appears that you have taken up thirteen cards consisting
of the four suits, successively taken and being arranged as
follows:--6, 2, 10, 9, 3, king; 8, 4, 1, knave; 7, 5, queen.

Proceed in like manner with the remainder of the cards, beginning
with the row next to that from which you took the queen, and take
the six, then from the next row the two, and so on as before,
making up another batch of 13 cards.

Repeat the process for a third batch, and finish with the
remainder for the fourth--always remembering to take the card
from the next row in succession continually; in other words, only
one card must be taken from each row at a time.
