THE CANDLE LANTERN


THE CANDLE LANTERN

The palouser is a very simple and efficient candle lantern well known to the miner and woodsman. It may be made of any good-sized tin can, but a lard pail, about 5 lb. size, works best.

Select a point in the side of the pail a little more than half way down and directly under one of the ears that holds the bail. Cut a slit whose length is a little greater than the diameter of a candle. Then cut another across it at right angles. This forms four points which may be bent inward. A candle thrust through the hole is prevented by these points from slipping out, and it may be pushed farther in as it burns off.

Loosen the bail from the side on which the hole has been punched. Squeeze the ends a little closer together and hook the loose end under the flange in the bottom of the pail. This forms a handle by which the pail may be carried on its side—and the lantern is complete.

The bottom of the pail forms a reflector and makes it ‘a real searchlight. Although the whole front is open, it will burn in almost any wind because there is no other opening to carry the draft past the flame. As to the spelling of the name, I am not sure, as I have never seen it in print. The great agricultural region of the state of Washington is known as the Palouse (pronounced paloos), and in the Northwest everything of a rural nature is supposed to have come from the Palouse region. It is, therefore, not improbable that the name originated there.
