A total blast! The performer shows a small stick of dynamite explaining that when the dynamite is shaken up, it will either explode or its molecular structure will randomly transform itself into another form of matter altogether. The dynamite is placed into a brass, explosion-proof cylinder. After the lid is secured, the cylinder is violently shaken for a few seconds. It is handed to a spectator for inspection. When he opens it, he finds that the dynamite has vanished and had left behind nothing but a puffy little silk, or ashes, or confetti, or …use your imagination!
