The Extinguish Then Relight



To draw two figures with crayon on a wall, one of which will light a taper and the other extinguish it, draw with crayon, two figures on the wall; any you please, such as a man's head and a woman's. At the mouth of one you put a little gunpowder, which you fasten on with mouth-glue; at the mouth of the other a bit of phosphorus, fastened in the same way. When you take a lighted taper near the mouth that has the gunpowder, the explosion extinguishes it; then taking it near the phosphorus while warm, it lights itself again.

 MAGIC MADE EASY
We couldn't find the author of this collection but it's a compilation of tricks so old and classical we are reasonably convinced no one will complain so long as we give due respect to the craft and the magicians who practice it.

Hundreds of Amazing Parlor Tricks!

We did not invent these tricks and claim only the credit for the restoration, formatting, and strategic derivatives.

To help protect against grifters and flimflams we recommend you learn as many as you can at a rate of one or two a day. Even if you don't practice each trick, read and understand how they work.
