From verso of card: "Prepare by sewing a ring in the corner of a handkerchief. Borrow from your audience a ring. Pass a stick through it, and cover with the handkerchief. Under cover of the handkerchief, pretend to slide the ring from the stick into your hand. Let your audience feel the ring through the folds of the cambric. (Of course, they really feel the prepared ring.) Now ask two spectators to hold the ends of the stick; whip away handkerchief, and the ring is on the stick."
