Beadise Trick A Bound
It maybe promised that a Christmas
party should not be forced into merri
ment. That is, when some of the
jpiests evince an unwillingness to
"play" let them look on. It is not like
ly that anyone can witness the hilar
ity and downright fun the following
games afford without a longing to
participate in them.
Tho first strictly Christmas game
ever invented is appropriately enough
styled "Going to Jerusalem." The
players sit at first in two rows of
chairs placed closely back to back in
the middle of a room. A march is
played on the pianoforte, or some one
not in the game may sing or whistle.
As soon as the music begins, all rise
and march in line around the chairs.
"While they are marching, some
one who is not playing takes away
one chair from the end of the line.
The music stops suddenly and all who
can do so sit down. Of course one
player is left standing as one chair has
been taken away, and that player is
out of the game. The music begins
again and the game goes on, a new chair
being taken away each time until only
one player is left. lie has then "got to
Jerusalem." The rules of the game
are: (1) that no one must touch a chair
while marching on penalty of being
put out of the game; (2) that if two
players sit on tho same chair at once
the umpire shall decide which has the
riffht to ii, &ud. in case of doubt, may
order the players to march again, and,
(3) the person who removes the chair
shall act as umpire.
The "Knight of the Whistle" is the
name under which a far more amusing
game is known. The game is really a
trick. The victim of it is told that
the "game" consists in passing a
whistle around a circle of players, who
are seated, while one, standing in the
middle, is required to find it by its
Fjund as it is blown from time to timo.
Whoever "counts out" for the ganjo
must arrange that the player in the
middle is some one who does not know
the trick, which is played thus: The
whistle is fastened to one end of a
string about a foot and a half long, at
the other end of which is a bent pin.
The pin is hooked into the clothes of
the pla3er in the middle of the ring, so
that the whistle always hangs behind
him. It is blown by some one and the
seeker turns quickly to find it, thus
carrying it in front of some one else
who blows it again. The victim of the
trick is thus kept turning from side to
side till ho discovers tho deception.
The pin can be hooked into his clothes
without his noticing it by making him
kneel down and close his eyes and
then, after going through a mock cere
mony, declaring him a "knight of the
whistle" and striking him on the
back, while this is going on the whistle
can be attached to him unobserved.
The players should pretend to pass the
whistlo from one to the other to height
en tho illusion.
Bookbinder is another holiday time
diversion that looks simple and tame,
but can be made highly exciting. Any
number of persons sit in a circle, each
holding a book on the back of his
clinched fists. One -vho has been
chosen bookbinder and stands in the
middle of the circle, goes to any player
and seizing that player's book at
tempts to rap his knuckles, which the
holder of the book tries to avoid by
pulling back his hands quickly. If
the bookbinder succeed in this, the
player whose knuckles he raps changes
places with him; otherwise, he replaces
the book and tries to do the same with
some one else. The bookbinder may
pretend to seize a book without actual
ly doing so and if the holder pulls
away his hands so that the book falls,
he must take the leader's place as if
his knuckles had been rapptvL The
leader can make this game very excit
ing if he run quickly from one to
another, pretending to take up one
book and then seizing another, thua
keeping thcplayers constantly on the

than a Christmas game. It L played

each player a syllable ending in "i-h"

fclven 8lgnaT from the" leader; all the
company pronounce their syllables to
gether The effect is laughable, sound
ing exactly like a sneeze if properly
Resembling the whistling game In
that it has a victim but differing totally
from it in every other way, is a play
called mesmerism. The one "to be mes
merized, called the subject, who musl
be unacquainted with the trick, is told
to sit opposite the operator while the
other players merely look on. The
operator calls for two soup plates. By
previous arrangement with the others,
the bottom of one plate has been black
ened by holding it over a candle, and
this one has been given to the subject.
The latter is directed to fix his eyes
steadily on the operator's face and to
imitate every motion as exactly as
possible. The operator then dips his
fingers in the water in his plate, rubs
it on the bottom and then draws a line
on his face. The subject does the
same, except that as the bottom of his
plate is blackened he thus makes a
black mark on his face. As his eyes
are fixed on the operator's face, he does
not perceive that his finger tip is black.
When the operator has thus caused him
to decorate his face as much as he
chooses, he tells the subject that his
will must be very strong, as he finds it
impossible to place him under the mes
meric influence. The subject may then
be shown his face in a mirror.
Mind reading is both a game and an
experiment and played by any number
of persons, one of whom leaves the
room, while the others agree on some
simple thing for him to do. The player
without is then called in and one of the
company takes him by the hand, at the
same time thinking intently of the
thing agreed upon. He must not move
unless the first player moves. The
player who went out must keep his
mind quiet, trying to think of nothing
in particular, moving in any direction
he feels impelled to n:ove ani doing
whatever he feels impelled to do. The
player will very often do the cl.y
tiling he was required by the company
There is no general agreement as to
why this should be the case. It is
argued by some that the player's m'ad
is really inflenced by that of the one
who holds his hand. Others maintain
that the success of the experiment is
usually the result of chance. Again
it is alleged that the plaj-er who has
his mind bent upon the act in question

help showing the others, by 'uncon
scious muscular movements, what Ls to
be done. It is generally found that
certain players succeed better when
they are leaders, and others when they
are led. Instead of merely taking
hands tho player who goes out often
holds the back of the other's hand
against his forehead. Sometimes the
one who goes out holds no one's hand
at all, but tho entire company think
very earnestlj' of what they have
agreed ho shall do.
So the round of fun is run. It rarely
happens that Christmas games are well
under way without all sorts of tricks
and plays arising out of them or being
suggested thereby. The real difficulty
usually lies in making a beginning.
Feats in Which the Holiday GueBta
The imminence of Christmas brings
with it mapifestations of that form of
3'outhful irrepressibility which impels
the small boy to stand on his head in
the parlor and defy his sisters and his
aunts to follow his example. Never is
feminine regret at lack of gymnastic
proficiency more poignant than when,
during a lull in the holiday-time mer
ry making, a loud shout arises and
"Can you do this?"
Some athletic contortion or othet
succeeds the query, absurdedly simple
in appearance, but which, upon experi
ment, proves utterly beyond the ca
pacities of anj-one present- Then
another guest is emboldened to exe
cute a feat, and the Christmas party
proceeds to improvise a gymnasium out
of the family parlor.
The gymnastics are, as a rule, easily
inaugurated. During a lull in the con
versation, ask one of the little boys or
girls to jplacc a book upon his or her

siderable practice. This is not exactly
a gymnastic performance, but it leads
off well enough. "With 'this object in
view, too, it may be well to get two
misses to stand up, incline their heads
sidewise until they touch. Then,
keeping their heads together, let them
walk about the room. This they will
do prettily and gracefully. Then have
two boys or two young men try the
same thing. Not only will the pair-of
males fail to keep their heads together,
but one will be almost certain to stag
ger or fall before he has gone many
Now if one of the young women will
sit as btraight as possible in a chair
and four youths grasp each a leg of the
chair firmly in one hand they cart not
only raise chair and girl readily from
the floor but carry the two about the
room. Then let an empty chair be
carried about by the same four in the
same manner and the effect will be
found very painful and fatiguing to
the arm. One explanation is that the
pleasure of carrying the young woman
about makes the difference, but the
fallacy of this theory will become at
once apparent by seating a heavy man
in the chair and bearing him around
tho room. The fatigue and pain will
vanish. It is easier to carry somt
thing than to go through the'motiona
of carrying nothing. There need be no
fear of danger in making this experi
ment. The most successful of home gym
nastics are performed with the aid of
chairs. Let three chairs be placed
couch-like side by side. If a boy will
lie rigidly on his back along the chairs
uui at a signal endeavor to turn
around without bending a leg or arm
(the arms to be held firmly to the sides
or in the pockets) it will be amusing to
note tho effect. In some cases tho
chairs will bo put out of position. , In
others the boy will fall to the floor. It
is very difficult to perform this feat
without disarranging the chairs.
Again let some one place the hands
upon the edge of a chair with the
legs together but extended slantingly
to the floor. Then try to push the
chair back and forth while maintain
ing bodily rigidity.
The most (graceful bodily acts are,
as is well known, performed when
some object like a cushion or pillow is
balanced on tho head. If one of the
j-oung ladies, for instance, tries to hold
a pillow on her head and drink somo
water while doing so, the movements
hhe will go through are among the
most graceful of which the human
body is capable. The feat is highly
difficult, although it may seem easy.
Another difficult thing of the same
order is for a girl to balance a pillow
on her head and then try to pick some
thing up from the floor without letting
the pillow fall.

boys and men. Stand erect, tho feet

alternately to the left and right, as
suming the position shown in the cut.
This is not merely a highly healthful
excreise, but a difficult and laughable
In another cut is seen a trick that
looks very easy, but it is most difficult
as will bo found upon trial. The handa
are placed on tho hips with the legs
straight. Tho head is first moved for
ward and backward, then the trunk is
moved the same way quietly and gent
ly. The shoulders must not be put out
.Now stand' as straight ns possible
with hands at the sides. Then extend
tho right hand downwards to the right
foot without bending the right knee.
The other leg and arm may be moved
at will. This will be an easy thing for
perhaps one person in tho whole com
pany. The others will find it impos
sible. A unique amusement is to kick the
empty air. It will be found on trial im
possible for a man to give a genuine
kick at nothing. To provo this ob
serve the difference when a pillow or
cushion is kicked.
If some one will lie flat on the floor
and grasp the hands of two or more
persons and remain rigid while he Ls
pulled to his feet it will bo found that
an apparently easy thing is very diffi
cult. Now let a grown person assume
the sameO-dtion and, remaining rigid,
be lifted upwards, bodily, by tho
shoulders. The task is remarkably
easy, provided the rigid position be
maintained and the recumbent individ
ual is not tall.
A wonder in gravitation is the rais

with tho hands of several children or
adults. Let one guest stand upright

Alkali Ike'r ot Affair.
There are few women in the far
western districts of America, and there
fore the male population are bachelors
of necessity. The other day a ranch
man known as Alkali Ike rode up to
the open door of a cottage, and, with
out dismounting, 6aid: "IIow are you,
Widder McNabb? Nice weather we're
havin'. Will you be my wife, Mrs. Mc
Nabb?" "What do you mean?" expos
tulated the indignant Mrs. McNabb.
"I'm not a widow. Where's Jim?"
Alkali Ike looked athis watch. "Let's
see," he said, "half-past four. The re
form committee started for the pine
forest with Jim at fivo minutes to
three. They probably gave him ten
minutes before slinging him up to a
tree bough. If there wasn't any hitch
in the programme Jim's been hanging
about eight minutes. Wish you'd givo
me an answer as soon rs possible, wid
der, for the chairman of the committee
was going to start for hero to ask you
to be his wife as soon as he could put
on a clean collar. Took it to the tree
in his pocket, and if he didn't lose his
collar button down his back he's just
about a quarter of a mile from here
now." The widow's answer is not re
corded. London Telegram.

A Queer Instrument L'xed During the An
nual Orcrllow of the Nile.
During the time of the periodical in
undation of the valley of the Nile a
queer recording instrument, known as
the "nilometer," is liourlj and daily
consulted by a sluggish Eg3ptian offi
cer, who, to judgo from his motions
and actions, cares but very little if the
river keeps its bed or overflows the
whole northern half of the African
continent. Hut, as it is the only labor
he is forced to perform, and as his bread
and cheese usually depend upon proper
execution of the duties assigned, the
record is taken with scrupulous accu
racy. This queer and ancient "ther
mometer of, the Nile" (it dates back to
S45 A. D.) is situated at the end of tho
island of Rhoda. It is simply an im
mense upright octagonal pillar stand
ing in a woll-like chamber, surrounded
on four sides with strong walls pro
vided with arched openings which al
low the rising waters free access to the
nilometer. The recording pillar is
covered throughout its length and on
all of its eight sides with cubits and
digits nicely divided, painted with
great precision, much resembling sec
tions of a gigantic checker-board.
There is a huge staircase leading from
Lahore down io the bottom of the cis
tern, in which the nilometer f-tands,

immense number of times the instru
ment has been consulted.
A Chlae Ta I.eicrnd.
There is a jjtranrre Chinese lecend
concerning the tea plant- Accordingto
the story, there once lived a very pious
hermit who pasHid the greater part of
his time in prayer and vigils. lie was,
however, unable to keep awake as long
as he wished, and oftn found his eyes
closing while he was in the rery midst
of his devotions. This naturally an
noyed him. and one day in e, fit of
wrath against this weakness of the
flesh, w hich he seemed unable to over
come, he cut off the offending eyelids
and cast them upon the ground. lint
his action had been observed by a god,
who immediately caused a tea shrub to
spring up from the ppot where the eye
lids had fallen. It is in reference to
this, according to the legend, that the
leaves of the tea plant are f-haped like
eyelids, fringed with lashes, and pos
sess tnc power of warding off sleep.
