Name Address ON FISHING TACKLE think of it: Six men, six costly nets, three skiffs and two power boats to have $24.00 to divide up at the end of the week. It would a little more than pay their gasoline bills. These men ' have to pay their state, county and town taxes. Then it is proposed to put an extra tax on this tishing tackle. Why not put an extra tax on farm implements and carpenters tools, steam mills and all other classes of labor as well as these poor fishermen? All the others are better able to pay that extra tax than the fishermen. But a complaint is raised that so many of the little fish are destroyed. That is true.

A description of a novel "domestic cold storage plajit" is given in the Dayton Journal as follows: "This is nothing more nor Je than the extersion or inclosing of a window in the pantry, and besides four old shutters which the local carpenter supplied second-hand, had nothing more than one board at the bottom for a platform, one at the top for th roof, and two braces at either end to act as supports. 4The object of the extended win dow sill is to supply a cold storage space for the winter time Since the lower sash can be raided and lowered, it is possible to store fruits, vegeta bles, milk. etc.. during the fall, winter and spring months without the pur chase of ice. This scheme might alo be utilized during the summer months for similar purpose, although by most people an icebox would be con sidered essential. "When the lady of the house dovi her own work and thriftily avoids the purchase of ice during the greater portion of the year, and being at the same time desirous of keeping thing! cool, she is gnrally obliged to go out of doors, down two or more step and into a separate vault or box out side of the hous. The simple scheme shown herewith, however.- prevents climbin ' up and down slippery steps, and has been found eminently satis factory. ITy screen is tacked on the inside of the shutters so that the lower sh can tg kept open during hot weather, if so desired. Th ad vantages in brief are a saving of ie many steps are likewise rendered un necessary, the carpenter obtains a. job at a fair price in which he can us second-hand materials, and life is made easier for the houjewifr. i 4 r f i t i I -ft I" ' 5 . i 4 1 J e S ' ':.! r V 2 : - i v . . ... .
