Magician lights a cigarette which he drops into the highly polished metal ashtray that he holds in his hand. Now, he reaches up into thin air and magically produces another lit cigarette. He even goes in the audience and produces cigarettes from strange places such as coat pockets, a girl's hair, pocketbooks, etc. All cigarettes are placed in the metal ashtray. But wait, at the end of the act, the metal ashtray is empty.
