THE WITCH OF THE PUMPKIN
As the scene opens a tremendous jack-o'-lantern Pumpkin is seen resting atop a
corn stalk pedestal and enclosed within a low lattice type fence. A girl enters the pumpkin via the top. Her face remains visible through the open front of the Jack-o'-lantern. The lid is placed on and
pumpkin brought forward. When the top is removed, instead of the girl we find her familiar in the form of a black cat, the girl having completely vanished. This illusion has tremendous possibilities in a
theme number or style revue. The cat and the witch may be furnished by Owen at extra cost.
THE DECAPITATED PRINCESS
We present another attractive specimen of that particular type of illusion
which is applicable to "set" show requirements. It consists of an elaborate chair of the "throne" type, across the arms of which rest two ordinary swords. In the center, and resting upon
the blades of the sword, is a person's head. No doubt can exist but that the head is alive. This is one of the most perplexing of all optical deceptions, and one that is suited for use at very close
quarters. Constructed in the incomparable Owen manner.
