SPLITTING WOOD. ; A correspondent writes : — ' Seeing/a boy trying- his best to split a section of' wood, which would not yield to his axe, I showed him an old method, by which the readily split it. He struck ' fair and square' many times in the same place, jbut did not twist his helve at the' moment of striking the 'wood. .The fseotfefc hi 'splitting is simply to « flop ' the. axe, thus, making use of the -poll of the axe as a' lever the moment it enters. While this method seems to be pretty generally known to experienced woodsmen, there are many Bottlers jrho kuow nothing of it, whatever ; frequently striking a. dpgen times, where one1, well direotcil blow! with a ' twist of the wriit' would readily part tfce Btiek.'
