HAVE A SYSTEM IN MENDING
Will Save Much Time and Trouble,
and Garments Will Be In Order
There is nothing on earth like sys
tem, and nowhero do you realize this
more than In matters of dress. Tho
tiny bole In your stocking that you
might have mended in two minutes
grows Into an undarnable "run," the
rip under the arm in your new blouse
extends alarmingly; nothing that must
be mended stays "where it is put."
The remedy for all this is a regular
mending day or a regular mending
evening If you are a business woman.
As soon as a garment needs mending
If it be only a button or a hook that
must bo replaced, put it aside unless
It is so necessary that you must at
tend to the trouble at once, and when
mending day rolls around do the re
quired sewing. You will bo surprised
to find how much lighter your work
becomes when you can thus catch
rents and tears at their start Instead
of at their disastrous finish. Tho oth
er point to remember is to always
have your sewing implements where
you can get them and In perfect order.
Do not wait until the very moment
for mending to find that you are out
of white thread or that your needles
are rusty. When a thing needs re
pairing, repair it; when it needs re
placing, replace it. It might even be
well to have a "preparation" day to
antedate the mending one.

"When the right time camo, and Net
hcraiah's heart was burning witli sor
row and desire, lie found "opportuni
ties concealed in apparent hindrances."
It was dangerous to Bhow sorrow in
the presence of the king. Kven a mod
ern autocrat like Ixnila XIV. expected
everybody's face to shine if ho did but
appear, and how much more an Artax-eries?-
What, wear a sorrowful face
when he was presiding over Joy and
Rnyety, gild'ng them with his pres
ence? Jf he had ordered tliio melan
choly visage away to prison or death,
It would havo been Justified by prece
dent. A gloomy face might mean dis
affection against the king. The light
of his favor ought to be enough to
drive all sadness away.
Nehemiah had hitherto been able
to keep a smiling face when before
the king; but one day at a Buperb
banquet, when tho queen was din
ing with her husband, nmid gold plate,
gorgeous silk dresses of every hue,
marble pillars, fountains, music, lights,
sultanas, courtiers resplendent as the
sun, and all worshiping their sun Ar
taxerxes. smiling when lie smiled, his
sorrow shone through tils face in
eplte of himself, so that the king no
ticed It and said:
"Why is thy countenance sad, see
ing thou art not'sick? this is nothing
elso but sorrow of heart." Then he
was very Eore afraid, and said unto the
king, "Let the king live for ever: why
should not my countenance be sad,
when tho city, the place of my fa
thers' sepulchres, lieth waste, and the
pates thereof are consumed of fire?
If it plsase the king and if thy serv
ant have found favor in thy sight, that
thou wouldcct send me unto Judah,
unto the city of my fathers' sepulchres,
that I may build it."
The kind was pleased to prant his
request, made him the Tlrshatha, or
governor of Judea, "royal agent" or
"plenipotentiary," with full powers.
He traveled to Judea in state, with a
military guard of cavalry, and with let
ters to the rulers o fche neighboring
provinces to give him whatever lie
needed for his work.
Nehemiah was very wise. Ho lay
quiet for three days, doing nothing, but
learning everything. lie showed no
credentials, he proposed no plans, he
told no one what he hoped to do. His
first business was to learn the whole
situation, the feelings of the people,
who would oppose, and who would
help, how ablo the people were, what
obstacles must bo overcome.
Nehemiah met tho rulers, nobles,
priests and people, and told them of
his purpose In coming, how he had
learned of their need, how he had
wept and fasted and prayed, and how
God had heard bis prayer and caused
the great emperor to favor hla plans,
give him permission to come, and au
thority, with orders for the surround
ing rulers to give the needed help. Ha
told them of his midnight Investiga
tions. Tho business side of religion should
bo done as Nehemiah did it in the
most skillful end ideal business man
ner. Nehemiah had a layman's good
sense in religion. Walls were neces
sary to the safety of the city. They
were also necessary to true religion.
The division of labor, tho noblo com
petition, the Interest in llieir work that
kept them from taking time to even
put off their clothes, the giving each
his own work, and over against his
own house, the union of watching and
praying and working, tho working to
gether of old and young, rich and poor,
form a real master-stroke of genius."
The wall was parceled out among 44
working parties. It was liko the re
building of the Valla of Athens after
the invasion of Xerxes, like the build
ing of the walls of Edinburgh after the
battle of Flodden. This plan made each
ono more earnest and faithful as he
saw what others were doing. It ani
mated the work with a noble emula
tion, and a personal pride. See how
fast my work goes on! See how well
my piece is done! Now, my sons, gird
up your tunic, or ItephalaU the son
of Hur will get ahead of us. True
emulation is to do better than we
have done; to seek, not to get beyond
others, but to rise to the best possl.
bla for us; and to be Inspired to this
by seeing what others have done.
