Demon Marble Mystery

The performer shows three different coloured marbles and asks for one to be chosen, without him seeing which one. This is given to him behind his back and he immediately calls out the colour of the marble. This can be repeated. A Davenport adverisement for the trick is also illustrated here. Whoever wrote the advertisement has a way with words. The final sentence is: ‘If you had eyes in your fingertips you could hardly better this brilliant and suble idea.’
