Another retires to the Sanctuary i of her room and proceeds to turn Bureau drawers upside Down under pretence of straightening this is an unfailing Refuge for the troubled soul of woman. It is True that the spasm of Clearing up generally leaves her by the time the contents of the top drawer dumped in a hopeless Heap on the bed and that said contents Are often pitched Back indiscriminately when action arrives so that their last state is worse than their Glrst.

Another will drag herself to tier 1 desk and set to work on duty letters which have been accumulating for months. Woe unto the recipient., of epistles inscribed under these Circum stances they Are Likely to prove cheer less Reading. A fourth will attack some abstruse and Meu Nicholy Book which Only., heightens her gloom. And a fifth May be will retire into Solitude to meditate on her miseries and wish she were dead.
