Hot Boiled Beans And Bacon
This is a game for young children. Some small article is hidden in the room, while the little one who has to find it is sent outside. This finished, the players call out together: Hot Boiled Beans and Bacon; it's hidden and can be taken. The little one enters and begins to hunt about for the hidden article. When she comes near to its hiding place, the company tell her that she is getting hot; or, if she is not near it, she is told that she is cold. That she is very hot or very cold, will denote that she is very near of very far away from the object that is hidden; while if she is extremely near, she would be told that she was burning. In this way the hidden object can be found, and all the children can be interested in the game by being allowed to call out whether the little one is hot or cold.

This is a rough-and-tumble game for the boys, and must be played either outside, or in a large bare room. Sides are chosen, the big boys taking the small boys on their back, carrying them 'pick-a-back.' The one carrying the boy is called the horse, and the other the rider. The sides stand opposite each other and when a signal is given, they rush toward each other, the horses trying to knock down the opposing horses, and the riders trying to dismount each other. The game continues until a single horse and rider remain, and the side to which they belong wins the game.
