reesetee commented on the word thread will not burn
From verso of card: "Suspend a ring (not too heavy) from the end of a piece of thread. Tell your audience that you will burn the thread without allowing the ring to fall. METHOD.--Prepare a saline solution by soaking one tablespoonful of common salt in an equal quantity of water. Soak the thread in this solution and allow it to dry. This has the effect of holding the burnt thread together."
