It will be necessary for two of the players to know how to play the
game. One is sent out of the room, and the other remains inside to
take a picture of one of the guests. This is done by holding up a
spoon or some polished surface to a player's face.

When the picture is taken, the one outside is called in, given the
spoon, told to look at it, and guess whose picture it is. In a short
time she has guessed correctly, to the amazement of the guests. She
leaves the room again, while another picture is taken, is called in,
and guesses that, and so on.

If any guest thinks he can do it, he may have a trial, but he may
fail. Finally it is discovered that the one who remained inside and
took the pictures sits in exactly the same position as the person
whose picture was taken. If his feet were crossed and his hands
folded, the leader will take that position. If another person is in
that position, the one who guesses waits until one makes a change, and
thus the name may be guessed.
