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
