fortunes will permit, the prizes are awarded and supper is served.
Place four or five small tables about the room—• arranged as for the usual progressive game. The players may be paired by each drawing half of a quotation— which, reunited, determines their partnership at the beginning of the game—as, for instance, one finds this appropriate question, "How happy could I be with either?" on the paper that falls to his lot; so he must seek for "Were t'other dear charmer away." The young women need not wait to be sought, but may be as active in looking for their mates as if Leap-Year privileges were permanently conceded. As the players take their seats—four at each table—one set finds a list of questions, written upon four cards, and a blank card for each person, whereon to record the answers. For example, at the first table the cards ask:
1.  Who wrote
"I remember, I remember The house where I was born"?
2.  Who,
"I love it, I love it, and who shall dare To chide me for loving that old arm-chair ?"
3.  Who is the author of
"Mary, Mary, quite contrary How does your garden grow?"
4.  And who of
"Man wants but little here below Nor wants that little long"?
5.  Who wrote
"'Twas the night before Xmas"?
