THIS book is intended for boys who
' want the latest ideas for making

The author has planned the suggestions
on an economical basis, providing for the
use Of the things at hand, and many of
the things which can be bought cheaply.
Mr. Hall’s books have won the confi-
dence of parents, who realize that in
giving them to their boys they are pro~
viding wholesome occupations which will
encourage self-reliance and resourceful-
ness, and discourage tendencies to be extravagant.

Outdoor and indoor pastimes have been given equal attention, and
much Of the work is closely allied to the studies of the modern grammar
and high schools, as will be seen by a glance at the following list Of
subjects, which are only a few among those discussed in the 500 pages of
