Cock Fighting





This is a most amusing game, and although only two boys can play at it

at one time they will keep the rest of the company in roars of laughter.

The two who are to represent the "cocks" having been chosen, they are

both seated upon the floor.



Each boy has his wrists tied together with a handkerchief, and his legs

secured just above the ankles with another handkerchief; his arms are

then passed over his knees, and a broomstick is pushed over one arm,

under both knees, and out again on the other side over the other arm.

The "cocks" are now considered ready for fighting, and are carried into

the center of the room, and placed opposite each other with their toes

just touching. The fun now commences.



Each "cock" tries with the aid of his toes to turn his opponent over on

his back or side.



The one who can succeed in doing this first wins the game.



It often happens that both "cocks" turn over at the same time, when the

fight commences again.
