292 The Book of Woodcraft FAR^SIGHT, OR SPOT-THE-itABBIT Take two six-inch squares of stifl white pasteboard or whitened wood. On each of these draw an outline Rabbit, one an exact duplicate of the other. Make twenty round black wafers or spots, each half an inch across. Let one player stick a few of these on one Rabbit-board and set it & irn.hn xi ••#•«• up in full light. The other, beginning at 100 yards, draws near till he can see the spots well enough to reproduce the pattern on the other which he carries. If he can do it at 75 yards he has wonderful eyes. Down even to 70 (done 3 times out of 5) he counts high honor; from 70 to 60 counts honor. Below that does not count at all. HOME STAR OR POLE STAR Each competitor is given a long, straight stick, in day- time, and told to lay it due north and south. In doing this he may guide himself by sun, moss, or anything he can find Jn nature — anything, indeed, except a compass. The direction is checked by a good compass corrected for the locality. The one who comes nearest wins.
