All but one of the players, form a ring standing about two feet apart.

Then by some "counting out" rhyme some one is made "it." He then

takes his place in the centre of the circle, holding a piece of stout

string on the end of which is tied a small weight or a book. He whirls

the string about and tries to strike the feet or ankles of some one in

the circle, who must hop quickly as the string comes near him. If he

fails to "hop over" he becomes "it."
