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.
