Excelsior !



[Excelsior !]

Excelsior !

A juggler takes a handkerchief from his servant’s mouth. Out of this handkerchief he extracts a large aquarium. The servant asks for some water to fill it up and the juggler catches hold of his arm and uses it as a pump. Water comes out of his servant’s mouth. Water and fish soon evaporate in smoke, the bowl is transformed into a lobster, which in turn becomes a pretty lady, dressed as a clown. The juggler then changes the girl into two, transforms them into small flags and disappears wrapping himself in the stuff.
