349. For Closing Windows

A piece of bamboo, an old blind roller, or any
strong smoothly rounded stick about three feet long, with a small flat

piece of wood about the same thickness, twelve inches long and covered

with flannel, nailed across the ends, makes an admirable and useful

article for closing top windows without either going outside or standing

on a stool or a chair to reach, or straining one's self with the weight to

be raised upward.
