Fill a cup with peanuts, two of which are blackened with ink on one


The guests play one at a time. No. 1 sits down by a table, empties the

cup of peanuts in a pile on it and is given a hatpin with which she

spears the peanuts one at a time without disturbing the pile, and

places them back in the cup. A few minutes is allowed each player;

when the time is up, the peanuts in the cup are counted, the blackened

ones count ten apiece and the plain ones, one.

Tally is kept for each player and a suitable prize is given to the one

who succeeded in securing the largest score.
