Plate XXXVI. The Exercises of the Youth
Their youth are trained in running, and a prize is offered for him who can run longest without stopping; and they frequently practice with the bow. They also play a game of ball, as follows: in the middle of an open space is set up a tree some eight or nine fathoms high, with a square frame woven of twigs on the top; this is to be hit with the ball, and he who strikes it first gets a prize. They are also fond of amusing themselves with hunting and fishing.
