In the world who saw In the wrong;

finger and overwrought nerves, not
upon their own faulty methods, but
upon the innocent sawing Itself T
Of course, there are some Woman who
ought not to sew at all. Their organism
Is so delicate that even a slight us of a
machine pedal Is Injurious, and sitting
for any length of time In one position,
or at any occupation. Is ruinous to their
nerves and digestions. Even these frail
slaters can greatly modify the tax on
their strength they go about their
necessary sewing properly.
Sometimes eyes whloh can, stand a
great amount of read taw or writing (be
cause of the relief afforded by the con
trast between the black and white) ar -Injured
by an apparent glare that OOane ,
from the color sameness of sewing ma
terials. Women with eyes of this sort
would better leave neadlea alone.
I have In mind two woman whoa
methods of sewing ar as widely at
variance as their personal appearance.
The first prepares for a day's sewing
by ridding herself of her dress and cor
sets, getting Into a kimono and literally
slumping down to her machln.
Lunch Una finds her flushed. tired,
and woefully untidy. She can t pos
sibly come down unless you will ex
cuse her negligee 8h hurries
through the meal, and back to her
work, refuse to ee any one, and
spends the day In tha same costume,
thoroughly convinced that It la Im
possible to sew and look present
able. When shs ews by hand, matters
are no better. With her the klmono
hablt has taken root, grown and blos
somed. She alts doubled up over her
work, and though ah Is still In her
early twenties, there Is a suggestion
(Just a suggestion, mind you, but It
will grow) of a curve about bar
shoulders, a contraction of her chest.
