THE GAME OF MAIL.
Who knows auytliing now of the
game' of mail? It was once nt least
as popular as nnd probably more
fashionable than lawn tennis is to
day. The mail derived its name
from this pleasing sport, which was
""recommended because it gave plenty
of exercise, without interfering w ith
conversation. It is pretty generally
understood that mail was much like
croquet, a game lmost obsolete, but
played with balls and mallets, the
object being to hit the balls tluough
a scries of hoops. A little book,
Lauthicr's 'NouvpIIcs Eegics pour
loJcudc Mail" (Paris, 1722), was
sold at the Iicckfoith sales recently,
which contained the rules of mail
and very interesting pictures of the
game. The players were in cocked
hats and the dress of Wattcau's
time. .The mallet was longer than
most croquet mallets, and had a
suppler handle, while the head was
smaller nnd lighter. The ball ivas
smaller than a cricket ball, but not
so small as a golf ball. In driving
off the mallet was swung to tho full
extent, like a golf club; that is to
say, it was raised with a slow swing
over the left shoulder, and then
'brought down swiftly on the ball.
This action a "St. Andrew's
swing," can only bp acquired in
'youth, and the short, jerking stroke
of late learners was known at mail,
but not admired. The ball was
ultimately "putted'' (the attitude
was not so like that of golf as in the
"drive"),' not into a hole, but
through a hoop. Apparently, mail
was a far manlier game than cro
quet, but lacked the "lmzaids" and
"bunkers" and vicissitudes of golf.
She Tyas one of those old maids
with corkscrew cuils, from Con
nectcut, 'who came down South on a
mission, to either deliver tcmpeiance
lectures or collect mnteunl for a
book. This one was armed with a
lead pencil and a book, and being
struck by the venerable, Uncle Tom
like appearance of old Mosc, on
Austin avenue, frlie piocccded to ask
him questions, the autiwprs to which
Bhottook down. "I suppose you iyore
a slave before the war?" "Yps,
mum." "How dic&dful! how shock
ing! And to whom were you in
. bondage?" "To my ole marstor,"
".How shocking! How dreadful!
What a shamo ! Did you ever wear a
ehaiu?" "Yes, mum, I wbrc a chain
for four years. My ole mnister put
it on ino hisself," 'Oh my! how
brutal! Do you kuow who it was ro
mov'eel tho chain from your neck?"
'Ycn, fjjnm; de Federal sojers."
"How grand I How patriotic! You
aio grateful, X wupno,so; to those
noble boys in blue wno voniovod the
cruel chain from yoni't neck?" "No,
indeed, I isn't giateful to 'em,"
"Oli, my! How unapprcciativc !
How debased! Why are you not
grateful, my collorcd friend, to
thoso noble men who removed tho
galling chain fiom your neck?"
"Bekaso when does Yankee sojers
tuck off de gold chain my olo
maister -pnt on mo, dey toek off 'do
silver watch wid hit, and dey hasn't
I)rmif 'em back yit." Texas Sift'
