First consideration should be the type of material used in the tent body. Cotton is recom- mended where unusual moisture conditions prevail. Cotton weighs more than nylon and other synthetic materials, but breathes better and is more waterproof. Nylon fabric is so tight that it doesn't breathe, and it has a tendency to leak at the seams. Other important construc- tion features are the stitching, and reinforcing of the fabric at stress points. Best stitching is 7 to 10 per inch, and definitely not less than five. Many times terns used for boat camping will beset up on gravel along streams and lake shores. This calls for sturdy metal or plastic pegs which will with- stand being driven into the rocks. A tent with a sewn-in plastic floor prevents ground moisture from being drawn into air mat. treues and sleepiq bags. Also, be sure that the tent poles are aluminum or fiber- glass, and that they fit together without binding. Perhaps the most important consideration is the amount of ventilation the tent will pro- vide. Buy one which has ample door and window openings with screens to keep out insects.

"Yes," answered Brian, thoughtfully, "and he'll go to Heaven the first time he falls in." ,i i I/:! ii, i,i , , ,!
