lluw to Make a Frog Klti".
Is a il".i:.'int sensation to feel
sternly pull of a good kite upon
siiiiig.and watch its jiinccf ul move
ments as it sways from side to side,
ever mounting higher and liifthn as
if impaiieiit to free Itself and soar
away anions the clouds. The pleasure
Is, however, greatly enhanced by the
knowledge that the object Hying so like
a bird through the air is a kite of
your own manufacture. An odd look
ing one is the frog kite.
It is not worth-while to build ens less
than two feet high. Let us suppose
that tne particular frog we are about

to make is to be just that height; in
this case the leg sticks must each be
two feet long, and as you will want
them to bend at the knees, these points
should be made considerably thinner
than the other parts of the sticks. The

peir.t eight Inches from the top drive
a pin through all three slicks, carefully
clamping it upon the other side, where
the point protrudes. For Hie body
take a piece of Hun rittan two feet
live inches in length, bend it Into Hie
form of a circle, allowing the ends to
overlap an inch or two that they may
be lirmly bound together with thread
by winding it around the joint. The
circle will lu about eight inches In
diameter. Take the three sticks which
you previously pinned together and
lay them on the floor, spreading them
apart in the form of an irregular star,
in such a manner that the top of the
spine will be just half way between
the tops of the leg sticks anil about
five inches from each; when you have
proceeded thus far place I he rattan
circle over the other sticks. The hirer
section of the sticks should be Iho cen
tre of the circle. Wit li pins and thread
fasten the frame together in this posi
tion. The lower limbs will be spread
w:de apart; they must be carefully
drawn closer together and held imposi
tion by a string tied near the termina
tion of each leg stick. Cross sticks for
the hands and feet may now be added,
and the frame for the head made of
rattan and tied firmly to the circle
which forms the body. Then Iho
strings are to be put on as shown by
th dotted lines in Figure 1.
This kite should be covered with
green ti.-:sue paper. A few clever
marks of the paint brush will give it
the appearance of Figure 2. The breast
and tail bands should be arranged in
the same manner as it is upon the com
mon hexagonal or coffin shaped kite,
with which all American boys are fa-
who were concerned in the execution of
miliar; but for fear some reader may
not quite understand. I will try to
tell exactly how to do it. First, punch
small holes through the paper, one
upon each side of the leg sticks just
above the bottom or feet, and one upon
each side of the arm stick at the shoul
ders. Run one end of the breastband
through the holes at the bottom of the
left limb and tie it fast to the leg stick;
tie the other end at the right shoulder.
Take another string of the same length
as the first and fasten one end in the
same manner at the bottom of the riglu
leg, pass the string up, crossing the
first band, and tie the end at the left
shouider. Attach your kite string to
the breastband where the two strings
intersect in such a manner that you
can slide the kite string up or down
until it is properly adjusted. For the
tailband, tie a sting to the leg stick
at the bottom of the breast baud, and
let it. hang slack from one leg to the
other. Attach the tail to the centre of
this string. New York Tribune.
