Mr. Albert S. Partner has received
his llrst shipment of asbestos which
will bc used in making asbestos yarn
at tho Comeros? Mill, having ree >lved
M ti pounds by express Wednesday.
Mr. Farmer states that he will re
ceive a ton within thu next few days
and after that will receive the mater

These llrst shipments are to be used
in practice. The making of asbestos
yam ls something new to the forces
employed here and of course a few
experiments will have to bc made
For thu past few days Mr. Farmer
has been busy having the machinery
in the mill changed. Although there
will be several addition in tho way of
machinery, for the most part there
will be changes. One of 'he main
changes will be that of the card wire.
The lormer ones used in the manu
facture of ordinary yarn are not suit
ed to spinning out the asbestos fibre
and therefore new onea will be put
Thc crude asbestos Is being ship
ped here from the Thedford Mines ii;
the province of Quebec, Canada. It
la unlik.? any found in this country
and is of a very tine qualify. It comes
it small blocks and baa thc appear
ance of stone and is almost as heavy
as the ordinary Hint rock. When
crushed t? 1B asbestos makes an ex
tremely flue fibre. When one of the
libres ls put under a microscope ii
ls seen that it has a perfectly smooth
and glazy surface. It is : o smooth
in fact that the libre has to be treated
with a chemical in order to make thc
little ?trands rough enough to hold
together when they are being made
Mr. Farmer expects to have every
thing roudy to start the manufacture
of tho asbestos yarn within the next
few weeks. Ho already has a con
tract for enough orders to warrant
tho running of thc machinery for six
months. Th? yarn ia strictly a war
product but orders already placed
warrants Mr. Farmer in making the
chango In tho machinery.
It ls not known yet just exactly
what UBC tho yarn is to be put to,
but it is thought that it will be used
to wrap the exterior of the chambers
ot rapid firing gns. When the cham
bers get hot, thoy can be removed and
another put lt, In this way allowing
tho guns to be of much more Berrico.'
