THE WAY TO MOW.—This is the way to mow, as described by Mr. Hilaire Belloc in "Hills and the Sea". You must regard the scythe as a pendulum that swings, not as a knife that cuts. A good mower puts no more strength into his stroke than into his lifting. Again, stand up to your work. The bad mower, eager and full of pain, leans forward'and tries to force the scythe through the grass. The good mower, serene and able, stands as nearly straight as the shape of the scythe will let him, and follows up every stroke closely, mov- ing his left foot forward. Then. also let every stroke get well away. Mowing is a thing of ample gestures, like drawing a cartoon.
