Boys nncl girls, niul even grown-ups,
have learned tliat there. Is fun at kite
flying from early spring until late fall.
One thing that has helped them to
learn this is the (lying qualities of the
box kite. Everybody who cares for
outdoor fuu should know how this Is
made. Here aro directions that any
one can easily follow:
The four corner posts should be
about two and one-half feet long, and
as light and slender as you can whittle
them. Four Inches from each end of
each piece Is cut a little notch for the
braces to rest In. The four braces are
whittled down the same size as the
posts, and are about twenty Inches
long. Each end of each brace Is
nntf'hod fn flf Avni* Hia nnof 'fl'" A -1.

in the end of n lu ace and the notch In a
post come together. Now take two
strips of thin, strong paper, five feet
long and nine Inches wide. Fold over
each edge as if ror a half-Inch hem,

some one holds up the four posts, sot
the braces in place and tie light cords
around tlie whole frame right nt the
ends. There; the frame Is up. Now
draw the paper snug around it, just
inside the cords and paste the ends together.
When the paste is dry, take
off the cords. The bridle should bo
three feet long, and tied tightly at
each end to two posts, eight Inches
from their ends. In the middle of the
bridle tie the kite line.
After you learn how to make a kite
of this size, von will wilnv ?
