It is a good plan to get out all of
last season's garments, and see just
what can be repaired and re
modeled for future use, and to
make a list of every new garment
to be made for each member of the
iniiy. The next thing is to make
vcr, or do whatever is necessary

The Appropriate Hymn.
At a Baptist convention in La
Grange some years ago the preach
er who delivered the convention
sermon read from manuscript. He
used small sheets of paper, and as
he read one he laid it aside on the
pulpit As the sermon was long (and
many leaves) the minister in con
cluding, said: "We will close the
service by the choir selecting some
appropriate hymn." And that choir
by association of ideas perhaps,
unconsciously sang, "Leaves, nothing
