A GUESSING CONTEST
A game that requires but simple preparations and that rarely fails to amuse is a guessing-match. Arrayed upon a table and duly numbered are several articles of familiar use, and to the players are given cards with numbered lines and pencils attached whereon to write their guesses respecting certain details of these objects. The leader has, of course, previously ascertained the correct answers, which are written upon his or her card:
By way of suggestion, the following questions may be asked:
What is the height of a man's silk hat ?
How many seeds in an apple or orange ?
What is the weight of an egg?
How many peanuts in a pint ?
