On the same principle as in the foregoing game, the following questions may be propounded and the an­swers given in by the names of cities of the United States:
1.  A young man and maiden planned a pleasant after­noon together. How and where did they go ?
2.  What caused her to fall from her wheel?
3.  What did they give her to restore consciousness?
4.  What surgical operation had to be performed ?
5.  Blaming the town for the accident, what did her father do ?
6.  What kind of a lawyer argued the case ?
7.  How did it end for all concerned?
8.  To whom were they grateful?
1. Wheeling; 2. Rutland; 3. Newport; 4. Lansing; 5. Sioux City; 6. Superior; 7. Concord; 8. Providence.
There are two ways in which this game is played. In one, somebody reads aloud a selection from an author who is conceded to write pure and good English, leaving out all the adjectives—Irving's "Bracebridge Hall" would be a good choice, since his pleasure in and appreciation of the people and things which he therein describes inspired many adjectives.
