Fun for the children is in store when they play this game. All stand

in a circle, not too near each other. One player stands in the center,

holding a rope, or stout cord, at the end of which is attached a

weight of some kind.

At the word "ready" the one in the center whirls the cord rapidly

around near the floor. The players, to prevent it from touching their

feet, hop over it as it approaches them.

In a short time every one is hopping and a lively time ensues. The one

whose feet were touched takes the center place and endeavors to hit

some other player's feet.
