32                             IDEAL HOME LIFE
Rollo, rioting uproariously, rushed rashly round the rough roof.
By chance Charles changed the cheap chamber stairs.
James, the jailer, judged John, the joker, justly.
Selfish Silas, with short, shrill shrieks, shouts ashore saucily.
Seated on shore, she sees ships with shining sails on the shim-• mering sea.
Through the thin cloth the thief thrusts thorns.
Theophilus Thistle, the successful thistle sifter, sifted a sieve full of unsifted thistles. If Theophilus Thistle, the suc­cessful thistle sifter, sifted a sieve full of unsifted thistles, where is the sieve full of unsifted thistles that Theophilus Thistle, the successful thistle sifter, sifted?
Four or more of the players stand in front of the rest, who are seated. Each player who is standing is given the name of some city so that those who are seated may know what city each one represents. Those seated close their eyes or, better, turn about and look the other way. The ones standing then re-arrange their line so that each player has a new position. Those seated now open their eyes and (one at a time) are asked to name what city each one represents. This will serve as a test of observation and memory.
Instead of names of cities, the names of countries, lakes, rivers, or other names in geography may be used. Names in history, names of authors, titles of books, names of birds, and of other objects in nature study or other branches are also available. However, only one class of names should be used at a time.
Prince of Paris
A leader is chosen, who stands before the rest of the play­ers and says, "The Prince of Paris has lost his hat. Did you find it, Number three, sir?" Number Three is to jump to his feet and say, "What, sir ? I, sir ?" The leader answers, "Yes-sir! you, sir."
