Effect: From Emerson & West. Seven ancient playing cards are shown to be six black spot cards and one King of Diamonds. The proprietor of a game of chance at an old traveling country fair divides the seven cards into two groups and asks the spectators to wager as to which group contains the Diamond. An elderly Gypsy woman, having wagered and lost, placed a curse upon the man and his game. When next he attempts to operate his game it is found that all the cards are winners! The cards are fanned to show all the faces are Diamond Kings and all the backs are normal!
