The children's toboggan slide is quite
an institution in a certain nursery. It is
an old ironing board, a good wide one,
and when its end is tipped up on a chair
it furnishes all kinds of amusement to

The other day the children discovered a
now joy in the ironing hoard. They pluc
ed it Hat upon the floor. Then they smug
gled a piece of soap from the bathroom
and soaped the board well from end to
end. It made n famous slide.
The three boys and the girl, who is the
wildest boy of the four, gave themselves
plenty of room to run, and the board was
long enough to make a good slide.
One after the other then ran. The
chase grew exciting. Finally Alice, tak
ing her turn, cam with a rush down the
hall and across the hoard. The impetus
was too much. Her heels flew up, and
she came down hard, very hard.
She gathered hersidf together with a
bewildered look on her face. Then she
stood up slowly.

A HOMEMADE HILL.
now Two Boys mid Their Father
Made a Fine Coasting Ground.
While Tom and Billy lived in New
England they found plenty of hills to
slide upon—nice, level hills, as Billy said,
looking buck to the delightful slides
longingly. lliliy always said "level"
when he meant "smooth." But all about 1
the new home the land was hardly hro- i
kin by even a rippling undulation. The ;
"hills" were really and truly very nice i
The sled runners would have grown i
rusty if the boys' father had not had au
inspiration, which the three very speedi- |
ly put into tangible shape. With u few !
sticks of joist, some strips of board for
stays and a few short planks they put up
such a framework as is shown in Fig. J.
There was no making of mortises or ten
ons. The posts were set in their proper
positions right in the snow, and strips of
board were then nailed from one to an
other, as shown. The "stringers" were
laid right on top of the posts and nailed
there. Then the planks were laid across
the two Ihut were inclined and over the '
level stringers at. the top. Afterward a
rail was nailed about the whole, as j
shown in Fig. 2, and the first snowstorm |
completed the work. Ilere was a "hill" i
made to order, and fine sliding it afford
ed. especially after a snowstorm that left !
a fine, hnrd crust. Down the incline the |
sleds would dash with force enough to j
carry them far out upon the level, and on j
this "hill" one did not have to keep
watching out for teams that always will
appear at the foot of country or village
coasting stretches just as a boy and his
sled are "unlimbering" for action at the i
This coast that Tom and Billy's father i
built for them—with the boys' help, as 1 i
have said—was eight feet high, with an
incline of IS feet in length. TJp and
down one side were steps, each made by
two hits of board nailed to the planking,
as shown. When these were covered
with snow they still afforded the foun
dations for steps that were quickly made
over them in the snow, the steps occupy
ing hut 15 inches of space in the coast's
six feet of width. The sketches are giv

en with the idea that perhaps other boys 1
and other boys' fathers may feel inclined ;
to give nature a lift too. Such a coast- i
ing course is easily, quickly and cheaply !
built and can be taken down when the
snow is gone. It affords sliding not only
whore hills are wanting, but where there
is so much travel as to make coasting in
the highway dangerous or where—and
this is specially important—there is likely
to be company in the coasting that is nei

. It is said that France is trying to buy
! 100,000 square miles of land from
Brazil. The Monroe doctrine declares
that the western hemisphere is no lon
ger open to colonization by European
powers. The colonies which they al
ready held they could retain without
infringing the Monroe doctrine, though
they have since lost most of them.
But they cannot, consistently with the
established policy of this country, ac
quire new colonies or add to those they
had before. The traditional policy of
this country, therefore, would not per
mit France to acquire from Brazil
a colony twice as large as England and
half as large as France. If this were
once permitted, the Monroe doctrine
would no longer be respected by other
European powers.—Louisville Courier-
