Fire Kindlers

To make very nice fire kindlers take Resin, any

quantity, and melt it, putting in for each pound being used two or

three ounces or Tallow, and when all is hot stir in Pine Sawdust to

make very thick, and while very hot spread it out about one inch thick,

upon boards which have fine Sawdust sprinkled upon them to prevent it

from sticking. When cold break up into lumps about an inch square. But

if for sale take a thin board and press upon it while yet warm, to lay

it off into inch squares. This makes it break regularly, if you press

the crease sufficiently deep. Grease the marked board to prevent it
