The stage is set three times during his offering, but each time a drop is lowered in “one” and Crane works in that space while his apparatus is being arranged. No paraphernalia is moved except behind the lowered curtain.
a woman is made to disappear from the cabinet and a small pickaninny produced in her place. The trunk is lined with five sheets of plate glass and remains in sight of the audience during the entire time of the trick.
It is neatly dressed and presented with good showmanship. Crane has originality and a talent for working out new effects. He already possesses an offering of merit, notwithstanding its newness, and should carry it to a place among the best.
