This game is also called Roll Ball and Nigger Baby, and is played by
children all over the civilized world. A number of depressions are
hollowed in the ground corresponding to the number of players and a
hole is chosen by each one. A rubber ball is then rolled toward the
holes, and if it lodges in one of them the boy who has claimed that
hole must run in and pick up the ball while the rest scatter. He then
attempts to hit one of the other players with the ball. If he succeeds
a small stone called a "baby" is placed in the hole belonging to the
boy struck. Otherwise the thrower is penalized with a "baby." When any
boy has five babies he must stand against the wall and be a free
target for the rest to throw the ball at.
