Ixwk at th plan again and let us
imagine tbat a different kind of a
man ba tbe room. At 10:20 be
enter th door, follows route
marked N, and turn to tbe left and
place tbe lamp and bl stemwlnder
on tbe small table by th door.
Then, in two ateps, be rearbea the
other table, where eh takes from the
drawera fresh handkerchiefs, col
lar, etiSe and tie that he will need
in the morning. Two more steps
brings him before th chidonler for
whatever clothing he tbink b will
need to-morrow. H then walk
round the foot of th bed, leaving
tbe cloth ins on tbe foot ot tbe bed
and placing tbe amall thing in the
drawer ot th washitand In eaay
reach when standing before the
mirror In tbe morning.
Now for bed. Every piece of
clothing is bung on it book or
placed in closet or on the chair In a
certain regular order, so that It can
be taken up In tbe morning with
out a aingle lost mottoo.
As soon as it Is ligbt be begins

night before end taking up esch
piece In reverse order he wsshes
end dresse. crowing th room but

picks up bis watch lust as be goes
ont the door ot hi room. He is
glad to note that be ba plenty of
time to gel a breath of fresh air
out of doors, look at the mail and
perhaps help mother bring in
breakfast, and best of all. he has
a good half hour to himself before
tho day' work begins
Hi time he knew was worth more
In the morning than at night, and
he made a list of all tbe thing be
must use In the morning and then
arranged tb thing in th order in
which they would be uaed, begin
ning witb the towel and ending
with the wbiek broom. He then
"routed" tb room so tbat be could
enter the door, turn to tbe left and
pass the small table, tbe chiffonier
and the second table and then walk
round tbe foot or tbe bed to the
washitand and then walk to the
closet by tbe head ot the bed.
Tbia trip was continuous and
without single backward atep. It

he bad a place for everything along
