JUDGE LOBRE ILL- MeFARLAND, Jan. 23.— Judge El.... ....... _____ _____ ______ ...._ _______ by her husband, Anthony Teresl, and j nier E. Lobre Is very ill at his homo their son Edward, 11 years of aga. Interment services wero held at Santa Clara. Upon their return trip they visited with Mr. Alexander's sister, Mrs. Mary DeSerpa, at Salinas. qn Harlow avenue with tho flu. He was stricken very suddenly while at his office Saturday night. Ho was taken to his home, where ho Is recovering. ILlUSIONl This very old illusion was invented by Indian fakirs. The secret was unearthed in 1849 by the great magician, Robert-Houdin. At that time, ether bad just been discovered, and little was known, about it. Houdin claimed that he had discovered that this new anesthetic could make people light as air. To prove it, he caused the subject to rise into the air and float apparently suspended. He pasSed a hoop around the body to show there were no wires or supports. IXPLANATIONt There are many, many explanations for this old trick. One is that the girl wears a concealed harness, which ends in a socket between her shoulder blades. This is attached to a piston below the stage. The piston is pushed up from below, causing her to rise in the air. The piston is invisible, because it is covered with mirrors which reflect surrounding draperies, similar to the background. The magician can pass the hoop over her body because it is cut in one place. It can be pulled apart for a second when it passes the piston. It's fun to be fooled ... it's more fun to KNOW SOURCE: "Modern Magic" by Professor Hoffmann, Gtorge Routledge & Sons. .'^ Another "magic show" is cigarette advertising. One of its greatest tricks is the illusion that cigarettes can be made miraculously, "MILD" through manufacturing methods. THI EXPLANATION* All popular cigarettes today are made in modern sanitary factories with up-to-date machinery. All are heat treated—some more intensively than others, because raw, inferior tobaccos require Copytllbt, 1(98, B. 1. Biyiwldi Tobacco Compuy more intensive treatment than choice, ripe tobaccos. The real difference comes iii the tobaccos that arc used. The better the -tobacco, the milder it is. !S|^^P* I' I* a fact, well known by B*^^ loaf tobacco experts, that Camels are made from finer, MORE EXPENSIVi tobacco* than any other popular brand. This is why Camels are so mild. This is why Camels have given more pleasure to more people than any other cigarette ever made. It's the secret of Camels'rich "bouquet" ...their cool flavor... their-non-irritating mildness. All the natural, ripe goodness of Camel's tobacco is kept fresh for you by the famous air-tight, welded Humidor Pack. Don't remove it.
