A DOMESTIC SCENE IN SARDINIA Many of the people of.the island are victims of abject poverty, but their condition is not due to lack of industry. The styles never change among the women, who wear the native costume; so it repays the seam stress, the weaver, and the embroidery expert to make garments that will last a lifetime, and can then be handed down as heirlooms for rising generations.

One would think the man had stepped from his place inapageant oftheMiddle Ages instead of being garbed inthis customary costume forfeast days.
