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.
