propataire;iehd, g.f. There are two games m 
Uist called by this name. 

1. Agume like quoits or pitchers. Two 
ì&Tse stones or props are set up on end at a 
distance from eaeh other of about 20 yards. 
The number of players varies from two to six. 
1! more than two play, they may do so singrly 
or in picked sides. 'l'he only articles needed 
are the props and two flat pieces of stone, as 
nearly balanced as possible, wherewith to 
toss. The ^ame goes by pomts, a certam 
number. usually 21. beina: agreedon as gnnte. 
The pointing or scoring, which la not reckon- 
ed in the same wav auy where else, is as foU- 
ows in Uist. Tbree points if you kuock the 
prop down fairly, one point if that pitcher hes 
nearer the prop than any other, one pomt if 
your other pitcher lies nearer than any of your 
opponent's. Thus, if your two qnoits be near- 
er the prop than your opponent's two, you 
have two points ; if ouly one is nearer then 
you have only one point. In the ease of two 
players, both stand at the same prop and 
at the opposite prop endeavourmg to hit iB 
or lie as near to it as possible. In the case 
of sides (say, two on eaoh side) one raember 
of each side takes the stones, while the other 
two stand at theoppositeprop, and toss each 
his two quoits to the best of his ability. 
These are then in turn tossed towards them 
again by those at the other end, the game 
counting, as usual, in points. ^ . ^^ 

propataireachd(2\or leagail shaighdear (fel- 
lin«' »-he soldier.) Game played on the same 
principle as skittles. There are two equal si- 
des of any number, usuaUy about seven, and 
each player has a prop, which he stìcks in the 
Itround just enough to make it stand. Each 
player Ls provided with two stones for throw- 
ing at the props, The side wbich wins fehe 
toss then starts to knock as many as possible 
of their opponents' props down in this way. 
The first man in the row throws his two quoits 
trving to knock as many down as he can ; his 
nèighbour foUows, and so on, tiU aU the row 
have thrown their quoits. If they knock 
down aU the opposing props, the game is 
theirs ; if not, their opponents start m exact- 
ly the same way to knock theirs down. If

Druidism. Martin says tbat Seonaidk is the 
name of a water-spirit which the inhabitants 
of Lewis used to-propitiate by a cup of ale in 
the following manner. They came to the 
church of St. Mulway, each man carrying his 
own proYÌsions. Every family gave a pock of 
malt, and the whole was brewed into ale. 
Oue of thtìir number was chosen to wade into 
the sea up to his waist, carrying in his hand 
a cup fiUed with ale. When he reached a 
properdepth, he stood and cried aloud "Seon- 
aidh, I give thee this cup of ale, hoping thafc 
thou wilt be so good as to send us plenty of 
seaware for enricbing our ground daring the 


coming year." He then tbrew the ale into 
the sea. This ceremony was performed in the 
night-time. On his coming to land, they all 
repaired to church, where there was acandlo 
burning on the altar. There they stood still 
for a time, when,on a signal given, the candle 
was put out, and straightway they adjourned 
to the fields where the nigbt was spent 
mirthfully over the ale. Nexc morning they 
returned to their respective homes, in the be- 
lief that they had insured a plentif ul crop for 
the next season.

sbios rathad Chataibh, doun the way of Suth- 
erland, is the usual way of speaking of the 
parc of Surherlaud on the Moray Firtb. These 
meanings of sios and suas are now perpetuated

In Sutherland, it is invariably " tha a'

In all parts, the use of sios and suas is regu- 
lated by the direction in whicb the water 
flows, tbus, it is customary to say, " a' dol 
suas gu ceinn an Ioch,"or " suas do 'n eag-

Bpeilean, s.m. Uist game corresponding to tbe 
game of " cat and bat." The nece«sarie3 for 
the game are the Speil or Cat, the Driver or 
Bat, and the Ball of worated or hair. Two 
sides of equal uumbers are picked, one side 
taking the first of the batting and the other 
of.tbe fielding, as they win or lose the tosi. 

A hole is made in the ground with the heel, 
and one end of the Speil (a small piece of 
wood) is put into it. The ball rests in the hole 
on tbe inner eud of the speil. The first batter 
strikes tbe end which protrudes with the dri- 
ver, thus sending the ball into the air. While 
the ball is in tbe air, he sinites it witb all his 
power, tbe object being to drive it as far as 
possibie from tbe hole. If auy of the oppos- 
ing side catch it before it touches the ground 
the striker is out, but if no catcb is made the 
first fitìlder to reach tbe ball gives a bowl 
(faireag) to tbe batsmau. Tbe iatter ai?ain 
tirives the ball as far as possible, and if a 
catch be made be is out. If,however,no catch 
be made, the first player.of tbe opposing side 
to reach the ball, throws tbe ball into, or as 
near as be cau, tbe hole. This is called" pìc- 
eadh." If it goes into the bole the player is 
out. If not, he measures the length of the 
ball from the hole by means of tbe bat. If it 
is not one bat's length he is out, if it is one or 
more, he plays on until be is out, when an- 
other member of bis side comes in in his place. 
Tbis coutinues tiU one aide counts 100, or is 
bU out, when the opposite side comes in. If 
neither side reacbes the set number of points, 
whicbever scores tbe highest is said to be the 
winner. Tbis game is fairly popular .stili and 
is oTie of tbe bealthiest and best of Uist games

spidean, s.m. Game which resembles closely 
the common game of *' pitch and toss," the 
difference being that buttons are always used 
in place of coms. A small stick is set up as a 
" spid," and a linedrawn at a distance of a- 
bout 10 feeb. At this line the players take 
their stand. The game is open to any number 
of players— in fact,the moreplayers the better 
the game.~ Each player tosses his button 
at the spid, his object being to come as near it 
as possible. He whose button lies nearest tho 
sjt^'x/ gathers.the other buttons in his hands, 
shakes them, and tìnally tosses them in the 
air. AII which fall face downwards he gath- 
ers and keeps ; the remainder are lifted by the 
player whose button lay second, and thrown 
by liira, those falling face upwards being in 
turii ciaimed by him. This continues till tha 
buttons have all been gaiued, che first man of- 
ten gebting a second throw if the buttons last 
so !<>ng. The players all bake their stand a- 
grviii ou the liae, the last tosser of the former 
tinie beiiig the fìrst to play this tiine.and con- 
tinue throwing bill they have lost all their 
buttons, or are other*vise forctìd to ilcsist. 

Should the ;>pid be hib fairly by any man 
excepb tho first, all buttons, no matter how 
near, must be lifted and re-t08sed. The ad- 
vantages in beiug first man consist in the fol- 
lowing. The tìrst player may, if he choose, re- 
claim his toss by saying, " Cha luigh mi " (I 
sball uot lie,) but if his toss be good enough, 
he says " Luighidh mi," (I wiU lie,) thus com- 
pelliiig all who follow to "lie," no matter how 
poor their attempt may be. If , howeyer, the 




firat player savs "Cha lnigh m'," those follow- 
ìny caii all siy the same. lill s ich cime as 
Bomeone remirks •' Luighidh mi," afcer which 
they are all forced to " lie." Anotner advan- 
tat;e the fìrst man hasis.thatthougrti he strike 
the spid fair he can yet "lie." ^Stili popu- 
lar, this was one of the moat cherished game? 
of the young Gael of former times, and many 
were the severe thrasbing's meted out to them 
for its sake. A boy departed to school with 
perhap'* 30 buttons on a string and returned 
home with none, yea, without one on his 
clothes, which were held m piace by pieces of 
wood or strins—Uist Games in Cdtic RfVieiv,
