And they are eo easy. . Sot Instance. vhj_ did so many. of you stumble over pictures Nos. 6. 7, 8 and 9. They were quite as simple as the three that were revealed to you. Ae an example, picture No. 6 showed a sportsman telling- a fish story to a boy who was ashing on the bank of a. stream. It was a very remarkable fish story, and the man was telling It with all the en thusiasm at his command. Now what do we ordinarily say about people who tell remarkable lish stories. Well, there you have the name of the musical instrument THE SUNDAY CALL. represented in picture No. I. A LYRE. PictTrre No. 7 was even more easy o> solution^ A child had dropped her* doll into a stream of water and-. was almost in despair over the sad accident. That, how ever, was not the chief subject of Interest MOWyCHli^REN, YOUNG AND OLD-ATTENTION, EVEBYBODY! At last you are to be gjven th<j opportunity of your life. There isn't one among you, boy or girl— or man or woman, for that matter^wnV'does not know something about games. Well, listen carefully now: This is the SIXTH SET in Vthe THIRD SERIES of the SUNDAY CALL'S great puzzle contests, and each of these ten picture£>epresents the name of a popular sport' of to-day. Isn't that splendid? Just what you have been waitijjg for, of course. H However/let r» give you a little assistance. Look at picture No. 6. What do you make of ltf Lit tle bit hard, is itP Oh, not so very difficult if you will think a while. What country do the people come from who talk liice the man in the picture? Is it Germany, or Austria, or Sweden, or BussiaP No, for none of those names even remotely suggest a game of any sort, do they? Perhaps it is Poland. Well, what do they call a native of Poland— a Pole, don't they? Ah, that's a good starter, isn't it? Well, what is this Pole talking about— a crave, a sepulcher, or is it a vault? Ah, there you have the name of the sport— POLE-VAULT. Easy after all, wasn't itP The next picture— No. 7— shouldn't bother you at all, for the most prominent thing in it is the man's mustache, which, as you see, is very curling. Well, there's your answer— CURLING. Perhaps that is a sport you who may have lived all your life in sunny California know very little about, but if you will' read up about the sports of snow and ice countries you will find CUBLING a very interesting game. Now, just one more: Let us take the last picture— No. 10. It is so easy that it almost seems needless to tell you what it is. There is a Chinaman. What is he doing? Taking a BEST, eh? And what is his name on the sign there? LING. Just add the two words together and you have BEST LING. Spelled properly WBESTLING. With these threo examples, see if you can guess the rest.

Cal. many blunders with picture No. 9 as you did. To be sure, there was nothing in the picture but a tall obelisk, with a lot of fancy markihps on the sides, from top to bottom, but those fancy markings all spoke eloquently of the name of the musi cal instrument you desire to solve. mor« especially as the Instrument itself is a particular favorite in the country that thinks obelisks are not only decorative but historically useful, which they are.
