lu the use of all edge tools. If you
would avoid cracks and splitting, be
patient and do not attempt to remove
wood too rapidly, i.ltli.nigh the toola
should be always kept with perfectly
sharp edges. There ls BUM?I marking

attention to the ends, us these are
visible through the side strips. In or?
der to Ht around tlie four corners of
the uprights, tho four corners of these
must he not.'hcd out. Those uprights,
after having bam cut to length,
smoothly finished and the corners
rubbed down very lightly with sand
paper, should have the lo.atlon of the
shelves marked ..n them and then
have tho huies bored for the screws.
From half Inch wood cut out four
?rackets of such a length as to flt

Place the brackets in position and
secure them by glue and ii small wire
nail nt two of the comers. In attach?
ing the side strips use mills with large
ornamental heads in the desired llnish
To conceal the hoads of tile screws in

iu as close to the screws as possible
and directly above them, if preferred
wooden huttons may be set over tho
head of each screw mid held hy moans
of glue. In order to hang tlMM
shelves a small hole should be liored
in the upper ends of oa.h of the ba. k

Eggs should be graded aud the small
