An amusement for children on a train, or at home when it is raining,
is the following, and it will help to while away the time.

If there are several children, choose sides and appoint one to keep
the count for his side. Each side sits by a different window and
watches the passers-by. Every man counts 1; every women 2; baby 3;
animal 5; white horse 10; black cat 50.

As a child sees someone passing, he calls out the number for his side;
if a woman, he says 2; if a man and woman together, it will be 3, and
so on.

If the children are looking upon the same street the side that calls
its number out first adds it to its score. It is more exciting if the
different sides have different streets to look out on.

If on a train, one side sits on the right and the other on the left,
and when an object is seen, they call out right, 5, or left, as the
case may be, for the mother, or older person to put down on the score

The side which succeeds in reaching 100 first is the winning side. If
the trip is long, 500 can be the limit.
