Aesop's Fables by  J. H. Stickney




MAN who had traveled in foreign parts bragged, on his return home, of the great feats he had performed in different places. In Rhodes, for instance, he had taken so extraordinary a leap that no man could approach it; and, he said, he had witnesses there to prove that it was so.

"It is quite possible," said one who heard him boasting of it, "but just suppose this to be Rhodes, and try the leap again."
