DIFFERENT WAYS TO

There is such a great variety c
fabrics on the market now, and mos
of us understand so little about ho'
they are made, that it is hard to kno
which ones will give the best valu
for the money. Our grandfather
used to buy pure virgin wool, but ne'
processes have been devised whic
utilize shoddy along with the wool i
such a way that the goods are som<

than the old kinds. Linen has gon

A microscopre is the most accurat
means of dlistinguishing cotton an
linen threads. Cotten fibers, unde

ends of the cotton threads are more

fibers are twist et in every direction.
ui The sound of earing linen is shrill,

Anotheif'simple test is to light the}
s threads with a match, blow out the
r flame and examine the burnt ends.
The cotton threads will have blunt
ends, while the linen will be pointed.

loss in weight, large additions of var
ious substances which do not change
the looks, feel, or structure of the silk,
are often made. If no larger an
amount than that of the weight of.
the gum boiled off is added, it is con
sidered legitimate; but much silk is
piade which has as high as from three we
to four times as much mineral mat- -
ter added to it as its original weight. t
This makes the silk brittle, and weak,
so that it wears out quickly. It is
easy to determine heavily-weighted
material by burning a small sample.
Pure silk burns rapidly, smells like
wool and produces a small amount of
brittle curled-up ash. Material which
is heavily weighted will have an ash
which is stiff and which often holds
the shape of the sample.
Cotton is frequently mixed with
silk. Such goods sold as mixtures
have many uses. It is easy to de
tect cotton in silk by the microscope
as the fibers of silk are rounl and
smooth, while the cotton fibers are
ribbon-like and fuzzy.
