Davenport’s Pencil Mystery

Several coloured wood pencils are given for examination. Behind the performers back, one is placed in a small plastic tube and the cap screwed on. Bringing the tube to the front, the performer divines the colour of the selected pencil. The trick may be repeated once everything, including the tube, have been examined. Complete with instructions.
