Patterns and Possibility.
One day two women who were driving

a decided discrepancy in the size of the
trouser legs, thd ships of Uh coat

beholders had ever een.

"And where do you get your pat

any, and t!n-n only on rar occasions

sculptor hip-, the imii hle he keeps the
model constantly iu sight: no stroke
of the painters brush is made without ,
consulting his r-k-t h, the author: every
word is written with his outline in his
mind. If you cut a garment, you pin
