[La Flamme merveilleuse]


The Mysterious Fire

A juggler enters upon the scene, picks up a skull, throws it into the air, catches it in his hands, where it is transformed into a handkerchief. The handkerchief, after being twirled about a wand, is changed to a napkin, and afterward to a tablecloth. Out of the table cloth comes a servant. The servant brings a low table upon which the juggler throws some magic powder. The powder takes fire and blazes up into a large flame, in the midst of which appears a beautiful female. The flame dies away, the lady descends to show that she is alive. She mounts the table again. The juggler leaves the room. The servant falls in love with the lady and proposes marriage, but she fades from view. The juggler reenters and head over heals disappears from the top of the chair. The servant rushes toward the chair, juggler reappears coming out from under the table, seizes the servant and, throwing him to the floor, reduces him to smoke. He disposes of the chair in like manner and dances off.

The Mystical Flame

(A very amusing subject. The appearance in the fire and the dissolution of a living being are fascinating tricks.)

A juggler enters upon the scene, picks up a skull, throws it into the air, catches it in his hands, where it is transformed into a handkerchief. The handkerchief, after being twirled about a wand, is changed to a napkin, and afterward to a tablecloth. Out of the tablecloth comes a servant. The servant brings a low table upon which the juggler throws some magic powder. The powder takes fire and blazes up into a large flame in the midst of which appears a lovely lady. The flame dies away. The juggler has the lady descend in order to show that she is quite alive, then he orders her to mount upon the table again. The juggler goes out. The servant falls in love with the lady and makes her a proposal of marriage; but she dissolves little by little into space and disappears as she came. The juggler reenters and disappears head over heels from the top of a chair. The servant rushes toward the chair, the juggler reappears, coming out from under the table; he seizes the servant, and, after throwing him to the floor, reduces him to smoke. He does the same with the chair, and then goes avay, dancing.
