Cut string restored.
[Diagram] 1. [Diagram] 2.
Tie ends of a piece of string.
Give double twist as 1. Bering
loops together as 2. Cover juncture
with left thumb L: right thumb
at R. Let someone cut at C through
both parts. There ought then ap-
parently to be 2 pieces of string.
But you carry the left thumb to
mouth, suck out the little cut loop,
& pretend to join with your teeth.
You then draw out the long piece
& otherwise dispose of the short.
(An ancient schoolboy trick.)
