house or shed, IS inches long, fastened
stoutly all along one side against the outer
wall of a building, or perhaps against n
fence, though one objection to tho latter to
that tho line when stretched and hung
with wot clothes would pull upon the fence
and perhaps cause it to sag In time, A

handle is attnehed with u ratchet wheel.
In nutting up thu line, ono end of which is
tied to tho barrel, first unwind tho line and
pons it around each pole until all is in tho
position wanted. Slip the loop in tho end
over tho last polo, then go back to tho box,
turn the crank until nil the lino is straight
