TIT FOR TAT.





Plan to have an even number of guests invited, half ladies and half

gentlemen.



Provide thick boards for each lady, also a hammer and paper of tacks,

and for the men, plain hats (untrimmed) and material for trimming,

also a paper of pins.



When all the guests arrive set them to work. The ladies have to

hammer as many tacks in straight, in their boards as they can, during

the allotted time, while the men trim their hats, choosing their

material from that which is provided. When the time (which may be as

long or as short as you wish) is up, the men put on their respective

hats and pass before the ladies for inspection; the one having the

best trimmed one receives a prize.



The men inspect the work of the ladies, and the one who has hammered

the most tacks into her board "straight," receives a prize.
