It is a question of fact whether or not tho damage was done through your negligent driving, and wo certainly would advise you to repudi ate any liability.

Supposa you ar© working a very ela borate pattern of lac©/ to trim an afternoon teacloth. You will find it the- best plan to complete all tho crochet Srst and then moire tne cloth to fit it. [f you make th© cloth first you may Bnd that, owing to the largo number of rows in the pattern, it is impossible t-5 make the edging fit the cloth. There fore havo all your crochet complete — edging, insertion, corners, etc. — and then shrink it. You can do this by placing it first in hot water and thon in cold ; but if tho work ia at all soiled, it is best to boil and bleach it. Shred some pure soap into a stew pan and cover with water.

Tile great causeway of Khufu' was 1,000 yards long and GOft. wide, looked on by Herodotus as comparable with the pyramid itself. Where a rock base, or blocks, could nut ue ubi'u xui u nuuuuii cross sleepers were laid down. , Where ail ordinary road crossed tho desert, all stones were swept to the sides, leaving a clear space 50 subits (85ft.) wide ; sometimes waymarks were put up at each 1,000 and 12,000 cubits (one-third of a mile and four miles).
