It requires two players who understand this game, a leader and his
accomplice. The accomplice leaves the room, while the leader and the
rest remain inside. The leader asks the players what hour they will
choose for the accomplice to guess. One will say: "Four o'clock." The
assistant is called in and he questions the leader, saying: "Well,
what time is it?" The leader answers thus: "Don't you know?"; next,
"Doubtless, dancing time." The assistant immediately answers "Four
o'clock," to the amazement of the company.

The key is that each hour, from 1 to 12 o'clock has been named
according to the letters of the alphabet in rotation, from A to K, The
leader, in answering, must be very careful to begin each answer with
the letter indicating the chosen hour; thus in the above the assistant
noticed that each answer began with "d," and "d" being the fourth
letter, four o'clock was the time chosen. Only the exact hours must be
chosen. As the different players think they understand the game, they
may take the assistant's place, and many ludicrous mistakes will be
the result until the game has been explained to all.

Next: IT.
