To Make A Cone Or Pyramid Move Upon A Table Without Springs Or Any Other Artificial Means
Roll up a piece of paper, or another light substance, and put a lady-beetle or some such small insect privately under it; then as the insect will endeavour to free itself from its captivity it will move the
cone towards the edge of the table, and as soon as it comes there it will immediately return, for fear of falling; and by thus moving to and fro, will occasion much sport to those who are unacquainted with the cause.Be sure to match the colours of the material to the insect or you may give away the game prematurely.
