Amusing Card Tricks

When the cards are thus arranged, request a party to cut them.
This is only pretence; for you must take care dexterously to
replace the cut just as it was before. Let them be cut again,
and replace them as before. Your ruse will not be detected,
simply because nobody suspects the possibility of the thing.

Now take up the pack, and from the BOTTOM take the first four
cards; handing the remainder to a party, sitting before you,
saying--'I shall now call every card in succession from the top
of the pack in your hand.'

To do this, two things must be remembered; and there is no
difficulty in it. First, the numbers 6, 2, 10, 9, 3, king, &c.,
before given; and next the SUIT of those cards.

Now you know the NUMBERS by heart, and the SUIT is shown by the
four cards which you hold in your hand, fan-like, in the usual
way. If the first of the four cards be a club, the first card
you call will be the six of clubs; if the next be a heart, the
next card called will be the two of hearts, and so on throughout
the thirteen made up from every row, as before given, and the
suits of each card will be indicated successively by the suit of
each of your four indicator cards, thus, as the case may be,
clubs, hearts, diamonds, spades; clubs, hearts, diamonds, spades,
and so on.
