spictive eliaracler. and simply prelini
limrv i tint ilUi'innIoti wldeb will in
evltjd)lv arisiias to the future use of
Uritis.li goat's iiair. Tlie origin of the
goat's hair f.ir clothlhg Is lost in the
olisUtrittts of dim antiquity, but it is
well known thai is was among tho
first, if not absoln'ely the first, sub
stance used in the manufacture of hu
man clothing. It has been wdl said
respecting tlie ancient and Yrldely
extended ue of goat's linir for clothing
that our rude forefathers in the valliy
of tho Euphrates, the Jews ami
Egyptians, the wild hunters of the
mountains fastness of Asia Minor, the
aboriginal inhabitants of tho New
World, tho Celts in Ireland and
Northern tin rone, hid discovered the.
method of making aititleinl coverings
from the tkeces of the goat. It ' was
of this material the gorgeous curtains
for '.he tabernacle in thonlainsofSinia
were woven; It was with goat's, hair
that Saul of Tamils made those tents by
tho sale of which lie mainly supported
himself during his arduous missionary
journeys at the dawn of Christianity,
"and it is from the down that grows be
neath tho rougher outer covering of the
slit-goat that those splendid specimens
of color, texture, and delicacy of work
manshipthe cashmere shawls are
produced. Tho two main classes of
goods into which tho the hair of the
goal Is woven are cashuiero and mo
hair, and the history of their manufac
ture forms interesting chapters in tlie
romance of t rade. I n recent times the
French held for many yearn tho su
premacy in tho manufacture of cash
uiero and mohair, but tho entorpriio
and ingenuity of Hnglisl'moit, tiy tho
introduction of tho alpaca, and by
the extended ine of mohair, reared an
Industry at Uradtord, Yorkshire,
which outrivalled the looms of France.
Hut tlie llekle goddess Unit ruk-s tho
Kingdom of fashion hcems to have de
creed that alpaca shall fur the time at
.'least bo banished from her realm, and
many Bradford manufacturers are
turning their looms to tho production
of cashmere. This material is, of
course, the outcome of tho manipula
tion of imported hair, and leaves tho
utilization of native goat's hair un
touched. .Still there is no reason to
doubt tint In an age distinguished above
all preceding uuca for inventive Indus
try, tho hair of tho unlive goat will be
co'me an important material for the
production ot ihuconrbor kinds of tex
tile goods, now made of shoddy and
.. iiumgo, for the clothing of tho nidus
! trial population. The various move-
nients unit will bo made in this direc
tion will be iiitore.itlug records in the
future not far distant.
