Doll Hunt (or Girls.
Little girls never have enough dol
llei, and realizing this (act gave a
clever mother the keynote for the
party which eshe gave her nix-year-old
daughter. There were twelve guceta
and they were told that scattered over
the lawn, bidden behind bushes and
all throughout the downntnlrn and the
porches, they were to bunt for dolls,
paper dolls, clothespin dolls, china
dolls and black and white ones; such
a merry time, and each little hunter
was given a dainty box In which to
put the spoils. Fifteen or twenty min-
utes was allowed for this exciting
pastime, then a trumpet was blown
and all the children came on the
porch to have their dollies counted.
Each one kept what she had and the
one who had the most was given a
pretty but Inexpensive doll as a re-
ward and then right in the middle of
the afternoon the refreshments were
served, consisting of gingerbread
dolls, with white frosting, buttons and
trimming, and Ice cream frozen In
shape of baby dolls. At half after five
goodbys were Bald. The party began
at three. Lemonade was served under
• big umbrella on the lawn.
"Number" Blind Man’s Buff.
Here Is a new version of the old
favorite “BUndman’s Ruff" and It Is
endorsed by the children as being a
good thing. A large circle is formed
by the players, with the "blind man"
In th center. Each person is given a
number, the numbers being in rota-
tion. The blind tnan stands perfect-
ly still in his position In the center
and does not move around. From this
place he calls out two numbers and
the persons thus designated must
change places. In doing so the blind
tnan endeavors to catch one of them.
Every little while the words “One
Hundred ’ aro called by the leader and
every one must chango places and in
this grand mlxup some one must be
caught. If not successful, the blind
man must continue until he has a vic-
tim, who then takes the place in the
center. This Is a fine outdoor game.
A Game of “Consequences."
A copy of a very interesting little
game has been sent me, aud It reminds
me of what we called "Consequences”
when—well, I am not not going to say
"when I was young," for I am never
going to grow old. There are thirty-
five sheets or slips of paper in a set,
«o the pastime Is arranged for a large
number of players, or the hostess
may distribute as many as her party
requires, and the rest are good for
another time. I give a specimen copy
of questions, with the answers. Each
person fills In the answer to one
question and then passes the slip on
to the nextdoor neighbor, who replies
to the next query. When the slip Is
full all are to be returned to the hos
tess, who will read the answers aloud,
giving the name of the one who
writes the last answer as the "au-
thor." You see the possibilities may
be grave or serious and there Is con-
siderable educational value attached
to It If the questions are taken In
earnest, and they could be used by a
teacher with her pupils to get an ex-
pression of each one’s preferences, by
having one person answer all the
questions and turn In the slips to her
You see there Is always somo good
In "Confessions,” and this scheme
may add to a dosing Hchool party.

Bresnahan Praises Men Who Can
Deliver When Needed.
Substitute Catcher (or Chicago Cubs
Praises Frank 8cnui»a; Outfielder,
and Heine Zimmerman, Slug-
ging Third Baseman.
In baseball there are two kinds ot!
nerve, according to Roger Bresuahan,
substitute Cub catcher. One is pos-
sessed by the type of player who bul-
lies meu on the field, has a weak
heart when he Is asked to go to the
plate in the ninth inning with a man
on third and drive home the run that
will win the game. The other Is the
player who refrains from pugilistic
tactics, but has a heart of steel, takes
a viselike grip on the bat and grits
bis teeth when the responsibility of
scoring a run Is put up to him.
Bresnahan declares the first la the
easiest to beat In a game and the sec-
ond Is the fellow who makes compe-
| tltion keen all the time.
Bob Beecher, left fielder of the Cln-
i clnnatl team, struck Bresnahan last
year In the Jaw, after a game of ball,
because the fielder struck out In a
pinch when a long fly or a single1
meant a victory. It was while dis-
cussing this episode that Bresnahan
defined the two kinds of nerve In

than any spectacular play Ty has
made in recent years.
It is the first time that Cobb can
be justly accused of pulling a rank bit
of "boneheadedness," and Ty got out
of the fix because of the surprise and
momentary mental lapse of John
