  NationMaster - Encyclopedia: Sawing a woman in half
Sawing a woman in half is a generic name for a number of different stage magic tricks in which a person (traditionally a woman) is apparently sawn in half or divided into two.
Once the sawing is complete and the two halves of the box, after being pulled apart to heighten the illusion, are pushed back together, the substitution process is reversed; the first assistant’s feet are again extended through the lower end of the box, and she is able to emerge in one piece.
Unlike his original sawing illusion, however, the assistant is not enclosed in a box; rather, the sawing is performed in full view of the audience.

 Magic Secrets
The standard gag is where a woman climbs into a cabinet, with her legs protruding from one end and her head from the other.
The magician then 'saws' the cabinet in half (variation: uses large solid blades) and then separates the two halves, showing us indeed that the woman is completely cut in two, wheeling the two ends of the cabinet around the stage.
Also obviously, her body must be in the half of the cabinet where her head is. The box itself is cunningly designed to appear smaller than it really is. Use of colour, lighting and perspective make it harder for us, the audience, to judge just how big the props and sets are.

Whether he could equal Faulkner at the dialogue or not, he seems to have brought down the house with the tune in a way to outdo all competitors; and one anecdote after another connects him with it in the days of the glory pf Mississippi steamboats and when Colt's revolvers first came down the river.
