FOLLOW THE TRAIL.

Send out a "hare," either walking or cycling, with a pocketful of corn, nutshells, or confetti, which he must drop here and there to give a trail for the patrol to follow. 

Or, with a piece of chalk, let him draw the patrol sign on walls, pavements, lamp-posts, and trees, and let the patrol hunt him by these marks. Patrols must wipe out all these marks as they pass them for the sake of tidiness and so as not to mislead them for another day's practice. 

The other road signs should also be used, such as closing up certain roads, and hiding a letter at some point, giving directions as to the next turn. 

The object of the " hare" in this game is to explain those behind the way he has gone as well as he can, and not to throw them off his trail as in "shadowing."
