Supposing a woodebopper iu the

for a yacht. He knows that he must
find a tree which is straight for ?'??

very t**oubleeome to climb trees and
measure them with a tn|ie measure,
so he, without knowing tt. uses prac?
tical trigonometry. He measui
00 feet in a straight line from ti
and then he cuts a pole which, when
upright in the ground, Is exactly as tall
as himself. This he plants in the
earth his own Icngtl
