Notes: Printed by hand verso: The darkness was only momentary. On the instant almost a dull red glow kindled itself from the depths of the bowl, illumined luridly the dense masses of smoke which still welled up from it. Behind them I caught a glimpse of the conjurer's face smiling evilly, inscrutably, his eyes glittering in the red glow, his finger-tips sweeping round and round in the fumes. Then,---I missed the exact moment -- he disappeared.
