Going To Jerusalem

A row of chairs, facing alternately different ways, is placed through

the centre of the room--a chair for every player except one.

Some one at the piano plays a lively air, first fast, then slow, very

loud, then low--while the children march around the chairs without

touching them, keeping time with the music. When the music suddenly

stops, all rush for a seat. A chair must be taken away each time the

marching recommences--until but two chairs remain, when the excitement

becomes intense. The one who at the moment that the music ceases has the

good fortune to seat himself or herself in the one chair remaining wins

the game and perhaps a prize.
