The art of getting things 'done, so Jar as one is personally concerned, depends very much on system and perseverance. There is a homely proverb about the head saving the heels', which has a good deal of pith in it. You know how many needless steps may be taken in the course of a morning's baking, for instance. One cook thinks ox everything she will require—the spice, the sugar, tire butter, the pans, the salt, the sieve, the sundries—and arranges them all on .the table in an orderly manner before she begins her mixing and moulding. Another has her hands in tne dough and remembers that she has not adjusted the oven dampers properly. and that the lard is in the pantry, and the apples are in the barrel, and the milk is in its place. The housekeeper who has no method is obliged to take half a dozen steps for everyone which is taken by her -orderly friend.
