The cocoon, enn lie sent to these
places ntul sold, or the silk reeled at
a small co,t. In the mciMlmc rcclcrs
will he trained who will impart the
necessary knowledge to others.
Kaw silk is divided into three classes,
"organinc." "tram," and "(loss." "Or
ipnzinc" is well twisted and is the
choicest; "tram," made from inferior
cocoons, is but slightly twisted j "(loss,"
is made from loose silk, carded and
spun like cotton. The persons reeling
silk arc generally women, one of whom
sits or stands before each basin of
which she has entire charge. The
basin 11 made of tin or copper, heated
by a charcoal or oil fire, In large
establishments the water is heated by
The cocoons arc plunged in llic
water when it is near the boiling point,
and arc moved about so that the gum
which fastens the threads is thoroughly
softened. They arc then stirred or
beaten with a small bunch of birch
twigs with split ends, or with pieces of
broom corn tied in a bunch, to which
the ends of the threads will attach
themselves. The teeler will then shake
the cocoons till each one hangs by a
single thread. She now takes up
five or more threads, according to
the quality ol the silk wanted, unites
them, and nuts the combined strand
through a little n'ass eye, or large glass
bead, fastened on one side ol the reel
frame. She then forms a similar strand
and puts it through another eye on the

brought together, twisted several times,
separated above the twist and put
throuch two other glass eyes or
wire loops through which they run, one
to eacli end oi me reel, wmen is Kepi
revolving, in a .steady, rapid manner,
and to which is given a side-way
motion which crosses and re-crosses the
silk in such a manner that it will not
stick or ularc. The uniformity of the
thread depends entirely on the skill of
the recler, who must attach a new
thread as soon as one breaks or a
cocoon uives out. This is called
noutisliiim the silk and is done by dcx
terously attaching the new thread to
the combined strand to which it im
mediately adheres. In this much
judgment must be used, for as the silk
on a cocoon gets lighter and finer as
it near, the end, the uniformity of the
strand docs not entirely depend on the
number of individual threads forming
it. When the silk comes off the cocoon
in bunches the water is too hot ; when
it unwinds with difficulty it is too cold,
and it must be regulated as the opcratoi
sees it necessary. This is the operation
of reeling j but before the skeins as
they come from the reel are ready foi
the manufacturer, they must be passed
through a cleanser a clasp lined with
cloth which catches any loose silk or
other matter adhering to it. It is further
cleansed by being passed through four
similar cleansers, twisted about five
hundred times to the yard doubled,
and again twisted four hundred
times to the yard. It is finally
run on reels about one and a half
feet in diameter, then taken off and
twisted in knots or hanks in a peculiar
manner. Through all these operations
the oscillating motion is continued, to
produce the crossing of the strands. In
the end it will be seen that it takes five
or more of the simple threads spun by
the worm to compose the staple thread.
The loose "flock" silk, together with all
that cannot be reeled, is soaked in
water for three days, boiled in clear lye
for half an hour, washed in rain-water,
and when dry is carded and spun.
New silk reels arc being introduced
for family use which arc cheap, yet
perform the necessary work. In using
these simplified, improved reels, the
cleansing, doubling and twisting opera
tions may be depensed with. It is not
necessary to explain the mode of twist
ing, etc, to make up into sewing and
other silks, as that is a simple operation
well known to nil the farmers' wives in
the country. What the women and
children of this country "did well" one
hundred years ago and over, can cer
tainly be done now, with even a home
made reel, spinning-wheel, etc.
r.STIMA'11'. OK 1'RODUCiKG COCOONS.
The following is a fair estimate of
producing'cocoons, for two adults, or a
man and wife :
Average number of curs per ounce,
forty thousand. Average number of
Ircsl. cocoons per pound, three hun
dred. Average reduction in weight for
choked cocoons, sixty-six per cent
Maximum amount of fresh cocoons from
one ounce of eggs, one hundred and
thirty to one hundred and forty pounds.
Allowing for deaths in rearing twenty
six per cent, being a large estimate
wc thus get, as the product of an ounce
of eggs, one hundred pounds of fresh,
or thirty-three pounds of choked
cocoons. The adults can take chamc
of the issue of from two to thtec ounces
of eggs, which will produce four hun
dred pounds of fresh, or one hundred
and thirty-three pounds of choked
The capital invested in food for the
worms is not included in these esti
mates, nor is the fust cost of the ounce
of eggs deducted. The silk grower
should raise his own "seed," and the
time required for this purpose is more
than compensated for, by the time
saved in feeding during the first and
second ages of the worms, when the
whole time of two adults is not required
as it is subsequently.
As markets arc now open for the
purpose of purchasing cocoons in this
country, there will be no need of ship
ping them to Kuropc. The prices
here vary, and 1 will give the present
price on application of those wishing to
sell, and w ill also give address of pur
chasers at the proper season.
pRonrs or silk culture.
Three acres of ground planted in
cotton require ten months work with
mule and plow. These three acres
would probably produce the farmer one
hundred dollars oer and above expen
ses. Say the farmer has three acres
planted in mulberry trees one acre
in full production ; say after three or
four years from cuttings, should feed
worms from at least four ounces of eggs.
This should produce three hundred
ana twenty pounds or dried cocoons.
Throw off the twenty pounds and say,
in round numbers, three hundred
pounds at the average price, one dollar
per pound, it would bring $300 to the
acre, which multiplied by three would
oe equal to $900 instead 01 Sto real
ucd m cotton by the planter, This
crop could be made in six weeks' time
by the labor of the usually non-producers
in the family.
As the price of cocoons varies from
season to season, and depends on the
quality of the silk, solidity of the
cocoon, etc., which in turn depends on
the eggs purchased to start with, the
care and attention paid to feeding,
temperature, cleanliness, etc., it will be
best to quote ruling prices at this time,
which arc from 75 cents to $1,15 per
pound for iJiokcd cocoons. Fresh
ones can very seldom be sold. J'ggs
raised in this country (United States)
arc generally free from disease.
As in Liking the lowest estimate,
three hundred cocoons, half male and
half female, will give one ounce, or
forty thousand eggs, it will be seen that
this branch of the business is profitable.
Whole choked cocoons at 75 cents to
$1.15 per pound, and pierced coeoous
and Hock silk nt 75 tents to $1,00 per
pound, will add to the profit, so that in
the whole, silk-raising will give a very
good return for the small expense and
the labor and care involved. It will
add to the income of thousands of
families in the United States by giving
light and easy employment for a few
months each year to the aged, the
young, and particularly to the women
of the family who have no other profi
table employment fur their spare time.
"minis 10 ItmiNNI.US."
There is but little danger of silk
worm eggs hatching during the fall of
the year, until after the first frost, when
it i3 advisable to have them put away
for the winter. Although freezing the
egg "does not kill the worm," yet it is
better to provide against it, by keeping
them in a room without fire, or a closet
where the temperature may average
through the winter from 30 to 40,
or in fact where water does not freeze.
till spring. As warm weather approaches,'
before the leaves make their apcar
aucc, remove them to a colder place,
being careful to avoid as much as pos
sible, dampness. When brought out to
hatch (which must be done gradually),
if the eggs arc loose, spread them
evenly over the bottoms of shallow'
pasteboard boxes ; if laid on papers,
they may be spread out smoothly on
tables or on the trays. When the
worms make their appearance, place on
them young, tender leaves, which will
soon become covered with the little
worms, lift these carefully into the trays,
on which have spread smooth, white
paper. Continue the use of paper in
the trays for about two weeks, when it
may be replaced with mosquito netting,
This netting may be used as a founda
tion in the trays till spinning time.
From this time, changing the worms
may be done by placing twigs or
branches (on which are fresh leaves) on
the trays, on top of the old food The
worms will soon cover these, when they
may be lifted off and put on clean trays.
This obviates the use of netting for
changing after the second week. For
further "hints,"' I refer to the "Cavallo
system," published elsewhere in my
Manual. Thirty-nine thousand silk
worms, proceeding from one ounce of
eggs, can feed the first day, and lie
easily in a "space of nbout twenty inches
square. Thermometers arc indispensa
ble to those raising silk worms. If eggs
arc ordered late in the season, they
must be unpacked immediately on re
ceiving them, and the box containing
them placed 111 a tin box and suspended
from a joist in a cool cellar, or in some
cold, dry place where they may have
plenty ot air, but no rays or retlcction
of the sun. If some of the worms
hatch prematurely, as will often occur,
remove them to a warm room (75 deg.
to 80 deg.), and feed on tender "let
tuce" or "dandelion" leaves. These,
though not silk producers, will keep the
worms alive, and they can be fed on
the proper food when it makes its ap
pearance. 1 he mulberry trees set out for
silk worm food should be planted about
eight feet aart each way.
One person can raise worms from l
