There is an oxprc-ion current that tlio na

vidaais would be, ix?rhai)s, going too far, but
thcro may bo something ill tho soap question
when applied to laundry work that trill bo
of interest without being personal. The
growth of improvements in methods of
laundrying during the last twenty yean? has
Ijocii marked. Indeed, it is the opinion of
somo that the real laundry work proper dates
iVom about ten years ago. Supposing all uro
familLir at least by observation, if not by
esprience with tho washday appliances of
the kitchen, let m lake a loon :nto or.e of
theoe modern laundries, and tco what a
:narked change thcro is in methods, if not in
On entering tho wash room a sense of scmi
suffocation comes to the uowcomcr, da. to tho
groat change in tho atmosphero from tho
dryer air without, though this soon passes
away. The clothes as they corao in soiled aro
taken from the packages, carefully marked
ard then Krparatcd and put to whirling in
immen; wood-lined cylinders, which aro
kept revolving first in ono direction, then in
another. Those cylinders arc supplied with
soap, and tho clothes are eleanod by tlio
movement back and forth. From xia of
these cylinders tha clothes ar changed to a
similar o:i full of foaming wap suds, and
then to the wringer, or more prop-irly, 'ex
tractor' This consists of a hollow vat or
tub or metal, tho sides of which are punc
tured with holos, the whole being on a pivot
and I'li.eed ias-ido of another tub or case.
Tho " et clothes are dumtvd into tiiu re
ceptacle and iz i; set to whirling at tho rata
cf 1,200 revolutions a minute. The centrifugal
power thus generated stndj tho water flying
out of ta3 clothe: and nicely fits them for th-j
drj ing process. This lattor consists of long
J;ars on rollers, which are filled ith clothes
and run into a place supplied with many
scam ceils that give rapid and thorough dry
ing. When tho watei has disappeared, out
corno tho garments and they begin their iion
in j journey. The smaller ai tides, like hand
le nlucfs, are put iKtvreeu cloth covered
cylinders all tho machinery practically be
ing run by steam an 1 tho collars and cuffs
are subjected to high polisliiug pressure. Tho
starching id done m a cylmdor similar in con
struction to tho waMrv3, though smaller.
Tlio shirt fronts and wba man doesn't liko
afiilnmg one whether its wa or not? aro
not subjected to the old fashioned, hz'id-iron-lng
process, but aro stretched upon ailat iron
about two feet long by one wide, slightly
beveled and covered with cloth, and then, by
aid of a lever, tho shirt is raided up on tho
iron until it reaches and is run over by a
low ly i evolving cylinder, heated by gas on
its mside. The result is a Ijeouliful gloss.
Care has to lx) takon, however, to keep
everything moving just right, as the roller
is kept no hot it would oabdy burn tho shirt
front if left upon it any length of time. Tho
cellars como out cf tho cj'lindcrs jiolished
properly and then, hi case it is a'turndown,"'
a ivat littlo machine runs a moistened roller
along where the bend is to be, and thus if
proper care is c.-eroised, tho collar is lciit to
j,hapo mid is not cracked. Starch and prjxr
aro two supplies much ud, and tho form' r
comes in by the barrel lots, while tho paper
comes by the car load, and goes out in rmall
