The Fugitive Apparitions

An illusionist is seen entering. He takes a lace curtain and holds it at arm length, when there gradually appears a beautiful girl in Spanish costume. This is an entirely new trick, for there is no black background and no sudden change just an indistinct fluttering. Placing two chairs, one each side of the setting, he puts a lace curtain over the back of each one and bids the girl sit in the one on the left. By pantomime he explains that he will seat himself in the chair on the right and […] he will change places with the girl. Watch as close as you will you cannot perceive the change, but change there is, for he is sitting in the chair on the left and the girl on the right. Then holding the girl across his knees he causes her to fade […] space. Placing a table at the side, he sits upon it in the position as if he had […] arms around some one. Then comes into view the girl. Taking her up in his arms, he throws he into the air. This film must be seen to be appreciated, as it is one of the most puzzling subjects that has ever been put on the market, and is very interesting as well as beautiful in the stage setting.
