"Oh, dear!" she sighed, "do look at theso cuffs; Is there any method on earth by which 'boughten' shirt-waist cuffs and collar may be ironed smooth? I took tho offending garment, and dampening tho cuff again in cold starch, took It to the board and laid tho cuff wrong side up on it. I did not attempt to pull the wrinkles from tho right side, but selecting an iron good and hot but not hot enough to scorch. I ran It over tho wrong sldo of tho cuff and then lifted it for inspection. 'Why, there isn't a wrinklo in It!" exclaimed my friend; "how did you do It?" It Is simply reasoned. You have not noticed that in 'boughten' gar ments tho cloth runs ono way on tho right and tho other way on tho wrong side: For Instance, if tho material is striped, it will have the stripes running up and down on tho outside of tho cuff, if thtso run lengthwise of tho goods; on tho insido or wrong side of tho cuff, you will find them running straight ways; that Is, the stripes running tho lengthways of tho cuff. This seems all wrong to tho ordinary scamstross, as wo aro taught to think that collar and cuff making is one of tho most particu lar arts, and that every piece of lining and outsido must run tho same way. 'row, I think that theso aro mado this way on purpose to Iron smoothly, instead of simply to save cloth In mak ing. Tho outside running cro88wise,a3 it does of the goods, will naturally acorn a little fuller than the wrong sido and if you begin by Ironing the right ido first, you will bo apt to get wrink les that no amount of pulling can ever efface, whereas, If you take tho wrong side, tho natural roll of tho cuff on tho outsido will tako all this seem ing fullness up and there will not bo a vcstlgo of a wrinkle.
