It is begun by passing to each gentleman a card and to the ladies small pieces of paper, which should be numbered. Those who discover the same number on ,helf card and paper are (partners for ,he game. Each couple must think of a question, sensible or-ridiculous, historical or in regard to the weather, to be written on the cards, after which the cards are to be gathered together, and the leader reads each in turn, givj ing a few moments for the partners to consider the subject and write the answer, which should be read aloud in turn. This is where the fun of the game begins, as many of the answers are exceedingly queer. Those having a correct answer mark their card 10, a wrong answer 0, and if the answer is anywhere near right it is counted 5.
