A WATERPROOF MATCH SAFE
I suppose ail the readers of the Ourís Box have seen and heard of several dozens of water proof match-boxes, but for an in expensive home-made article mine should take the cake. The necessary apparatus consists of one empty brass shotgun shell, the smaller the gauge the better, and one ordinary cork stopper to fit the same. Take a handful of matches, place in the box and close with stopper, thus making a waterproof match-box. To prove this I filled the case with matches and left it in water for three and one-half hours, and at the end of this time the matches were perfectly dry.
