64. To Pack Music

An excellent place in which to pack away sheets of
music that are not in constant use is a large box fitted with a hinged

cover and upholstered in cretonne, after the manner of shirtwaist boxes so

much in vogue. Such a box is kept in the hallway of a small flat, where

room is at a premium. The music cabinet was full to overflowing and there

was no closet shelf that could be utilized, as so often happens in an

ordinary house. An unused shirtwaist box was suggested and has been found

to answer every purpose, besides providing an extra seat when such a seat

was desirable. The box seems to fit in as an article of furnishing and the

reason for its being there would never be asked.
