6o Woodcraft Manual for Boys "What did you see there?" He answers, "I saw a lion." The neighbor then turns to his right-hand neighbor and says, "I went to the Menagerie." The same question is then asked, "What did you see there?" The second player must then re- peat the answer of the first, "I saw a Uon," adding to it an ani- mal of his own, "and a monkey." The game goes on in Mii*^ way, each player putting the same question and answer of his neighbor and adding the name of another animal. "Pack the Trimk" may be played in a similar manner.

The player then re- turns and the game commences. The other players sing or hum or one plays the piano. When the player who is "it" nears his destination (in this case the centre of the room) the music grows louder and he can tell that he is on the right track. If he hesitates or goes in the wrong direction the music continues soft and low. Having at last reached the proper spot, the player proceeds to try out all sorts of stunts, until, guided by the tone of the music, he hits upon the right action (reciting
