This game is known to every one by name and yet its simple rules are

often forgotten. A couple of dozen bean bags are made in two colours

of muslin. The players stand in two lines opposite each other and

evenly divided. At the end of the line is a clothes basket. The bags

are placed on two chairs at the opposite end of the line and next to

the two captains. At a signal the captains select a bag and pass it to

the next player, who passes it along until finally it is dropped into

the basket. When all the bags are passed they are then taken out and

passed rapidly back to the starting point. The side whose bags have

gone up and down the line first scores a point. If a bag is dropped in

transit it must be passed back to the captain, who starts it again.

Five points usually constitute a game.
