-The original of the trick in which a spectator tries and fails to place a paper clip onto the center card of a glued array of cards while it is face down was devised by G. W. Hunter: It was marketed as "Wrong Again!"​ by Will Goldston, who touted it in Goldston'​s //Magazine of Magic//, Vol. 4No. 5, October ​1916, p. 69. His ad for it appeared in the Sept. 1916 issue of //​[[http://​askalexander.org/​display/​38784/​The+Magic+wand+and+magical+review/​43|The Magic Wand]]//, Vol. 7No. 1, p. 35. Joe Stuthard marketed an improved version called "​Klip-Trick Monte" in April 1950 (see ads in //​[[http://​askalexander.org/​display/​36705/​Genii/​40|Genii]]//,​ Vol. 14No. 8, back cover; //​[[http://​askalexander.org/​display/​37495/​Linking+Ring/​176|The Linking Ring]]//, Vol. 30No. 2, back cover). Stuthard changed Hunter'​s glued fan of cards to a glued straight row of cards. The target card in the center was a loose half card that was stolen away in the second phase to create a vanish. Further details on the methods are given in //Prolix//, No. 9, 2012, p. 588.+The original of the trick in which a spectator tries and fails to place a paper clip onto the center card of a glued array of cards while it is face down was devised by G.
