Lacrosse, a Canadian game, originally derived (though in a much ruder form) from the Indians. It is played with a crosse, a stick about 6 feet long, curved at one end like a bishop's crozier (whence the name), and an indiarubber ball from 8 to 9 inches round. The game was introduced into England in 1867.
