If there is a kitchen porch to your house, it will be easiest to build the toy elevator to rjin from the ground up to that porch, as illustrated in Fig. 1; and if you live in an upper story of an apartment building, your ele vator can be made to run to a much greater height, which, of course, will be a great deal more fun. save considerable work to use porch, because for one thing you will not have to build an upper platfcrm to stand upon to reach the elevator cat when it runs to the top. and the supports for the elevator cables and | guides can be fastened directly to one of the porch posts. Figure 2 shows a large detail of the I supports for the elevator cables and guides. Cross strips A. B and C J gh0 uld be 18 or 20 inches long, about By A.

At a distance of about 1 inch from one end of strips A and B, screw a Bcrew-eye Into one edge, and 8 Inches from I these eyes screw a second screw-eye (D, Fig. 2). Screw-eyes with %-inch eyes are large enough. A dozen of I these can be bought at the hardware j store for 5 cents. The elevator guides are fastened to them. Besides the screw-eyes you must have two clothes ner C per In 1 1 I A line pulleys. These will cost & cents each. Screw one pulley ln|o the edge of strip B, half-way between the two screw-eyes D (E, Fig. 2), the other Into an edge of strip C at the same distance from the end that you have placed the pulley In strip B (F, Fig. 2 ). Nall strip A to the porch post as close to the ground as you can get it, strip B to the same face of the same post, about 10 inches above the porch railing, and strip C to the opposite face of the post at the same height as strip B. Nail these strips securely so they will be firm. If you cannot find a small box In the house out of which to make the ele j I vator car, go to thp grocery store and I E.

If you for have placed screw-eyes D 8 Inches apart, as directed, the width of the fe- b ox should be a trifle less than this measurement. Of course, you can «pace screw-eyes D further apart than xhla if the - box you obtain Is more | than S Inches wide. Figure 3 shows how the box is made Into a car. Screw two screw-eyes into each side of tbe box, one over the other, as shown at G, for the ele ad- vator guides to run through, otb~ ! -.to the exact center of the top of the box (H), to tie the hoisting | cable to, and screw aaotber into the exact center of the bottom of the box to tie the lowering cable to.
