THINGS ONE HEARS NOWADAYS "YynEN my sewing machine gets cranky," . said a woman who makes many of her clothes, "I humor It almost as I .would a cross child. In the first place, 1 make up my mind to turn my attention to hand sewing, for a cranky machine stays cranky some times for a day or so. After folding up and putting away all I have ready for stitching r give the machine a thorough cleaning inside and out; then I oil It, loosen tho tension, take oft tlie bolt and shut it up to get over the sulks. When you think it over It Is only a matter of Justice and gratltudo that a machine should bo humored oc casionally and given a rest and an oil bath and left to enjoy the peace of dis use for a day or two, When oiling a machine I run It quite fast between the doses, so that tho oil will be work ed Into the Joints, so to speak, and the last uose I make a very generous one, spreading newspapers on tho floor all round the stand to catch the drip, With machine oil I always mix a llttlo kerosene. That keeps the other oil from clogging," H n Bays a man who has recently dis covered that his better half has taken advantage of the concealing grace of a tunlo drapery to have two real and welcome pockets Inserted In the under portion of the skirt on sev6ral of her fall frocks: "The return of the prodigal, the re turn from Elba, are as nothing to the latest return of the pocket to women The affairs mentioned have created some slight stir In the world, but this threatens to create a revolution. In future a conversation with a woman friend will not Include picking op her jmuKci nanuKcrcruef at least three times. When one takes out one's wife sho will not cry out at every turn. 'Oh, dear, where Is triy bag? I must havo droppod it In tho cab or the shop.' Those who wish to keep womenvdown should novcr have nllowed pockets to th"en. Properly considered, the pos session of a pocket Is a greater stride on tho path of Independence than tho wlnninr of tho vote." H .
