Another easily made and very comfortable camp -is the "brush shanty," as it is usually called in Northern Pennsylvania. The frame for such a shanty is a cross pole resting on two crotches about six feet high, and enough straight poles to make a foundation for the thatch. The poles are laid about six inches apart, one end on the ground, the other on the cross pole, and at a pretty sharp angle. The thatch is made of the fan-like boughs cut from a thrifty young hemlock, and are to be laid bottom upward and feather end down. Commence to lay them from the ground, and work up to the cross pole, shingling them carefully as you go. If the thatch be laid a foot in thickness, and well done, the shanty will stand a pretty heavy rain —better than the average bark roof, which is only rain-proof in dry weather.
