SQUARE HEAD. TURNED HEAD.
The above cuts represent the genuine Boston Star Lath Hatchet. It is the only make and style of Hatchet that a professional lather will use. Lathers claim that they can do as much work in one day with one of these hatchets as in two with the ordinary style. There are many imitations, but the genuine are stamped with the Star and name.

HAMMERS AND MALLETS.
AS TO QUALITY — Believing as we do that a Nail Hammer is one of the most important of tools, we handle no cheap, or even medium grade, hammers. We have sold the D. Maydole brand of hammers for nearly thirty years, and are disposed to give them the first place. We have also sold thousands of hammers of other makes, and are aware of the fact that there are lots of good hammers made outside of the Maydole factory, but we are firmly convinced that Maydole makes more first-class hammers to the dozen than any other maker on earth.
AS TO HANDLES —All Handles in these Hammers are made of first-class second growth hickory. In our judgment, nothing is equal to a good piece of hickory for a hammer handle. We have tried applewood, cocobola and rosewood, and, while all three of these woods look pretty, they don't amount to much for service.
AS TO WEIGHT.—The weights given are of Hammers without handles. The hammers themselves vary but little in weight; handles are apt to vary a little.
These Hatchets are a good shape ; thinner bit than the older styles.
