MATTER THROUGH MATTER
From Quick Tricks, 1935.
This effect is currently marketed by David Roth. (PD)
The performer shows an empty bottle and inserts the cork. The bottle, which has a conspicious label on the outside, is now wrapped in a piece of newspaper. After tapping with the wand the performer unwraps the bottle. "Perhaps you are wondering what has happened,"<>"Well, if you examine the bottle closely you will see that the label has passed right inside the bottle!"
Obtain a quart, clear glass, bottle and with a little manipulation get a label stuck inside. With the aid of very little wax, stick a duplicate label on the outside, over the one inside the bottle. A sheet of newspaper with plenty of wax spread about the centre is also required; also a cork for the bottle.
Exhibit the bottle closely, but do not tell the spectators what you are going to do. Pick up the sheet of newspaper and as you wrap the bottle up in it, press the well-waxed piece on the label.
When you unwrap the bottle the label will adhere to the newspaper, which is thrown aside.
You can now pass the bottle for examination.
a little improvement in the effect would be to have the underside of the outside label
covered with newspaper. Then you could show the newspaper on both sides when you conclude
