Is there a name for this trick? I saw a guy, DANTE, in New Orleans do this...cut open an orange and take out some money. What's this trick called?

Bill in the lemon. Jean Hugard wrote a small book on magic with paper money that describes some of these effects. I would think one of the Tarbell volumes as well.

The Hugard book describes an orange being cut and a lemon inside, the lemon is cut and
an egg is inside, then the egg is broken and a walnut is inside, which is then wiped off, cracked and a signed bill is produced.

Kind of messy, so paper towels and a garbage bag might be a big part of the effect too.

Never did it. Have done the bill to lemon lots.

Retired it for the bill to lifesavers.
(Smaller to carry and no mess.)
You can get the Hugard book from Daytona for about $4.

Hey Ellen!

I thought you were a magic fan! I hope you're not here trying to figure out all of our secrets Smile

I love your site by the way! 'Ol Harry needed a number one fan to keep us all updated. We see far to little of the big guy lately. That seems to happen a lot when they move to the Big Easy. Life becomes far to enjoyable to want to do anything else but just take it all in.

I hope all is well.

Best,

Dan-
