THE effect is that a card is selected, replaced in the pack and the pack wrapped in a handkerchief. This is then gently shaken and the card penetrates it. After the pack with the reversed chosen card is returned to you, lay it face up on your right palm with the narrow ends inwards. Throw the handkerchief over the pack with the left hand and at the same time draw the pack forward towards the right finger-tips, stripping the reversed card nearly all the way out of the pack and gripping its wide edge between the root of the thumb and the tip of the little finger. Reach under the handkerchief from the front and bring out the pack, leaving the handkerchief face up and just over the card under the handkerchief. Fold the front part over towards the right wrist, then fold the sides down and under the right hand so that the card below is overlapped and held securely in place. With the right hand then take the folded ends of the handkerchief and hold it so that the pack hangs down, front to the spectators. Have the card named and a gentle shaking up and down will cause the card to work its way out of the folds with all the appearance of coming through the fabric.
