THE LEAP AT RHODES
A CERTAIN man who visited
foreign lands could talk of little
when he returned to his home
except the wonderful adventures
he had met with and the great
deeds he had done abroad.
One of the f eats he told about
was a leap he had made in a city
called Rhodes. That leap was
so great, he said, that no other
man could leap anywhere near
the distance. A great many persons in Rhodes had seen him do
it and would prove that what he
told was true.
"No need of witnesses," said
one of the hearers. "Suppose
this city is Rhodes. Now show
us how far you can jump."
Deeds count, not boasting words.
