microscopical examination of t'ne piijier
from LI -Faij;i;;ne. preserved in the Aus

knovcu a "Papyrus Erzlierzoj; Itaiuer,"
urges that linen rays were used so far back
as the Kight h and Ninth centuries. The
fiber is chiefly linen; but there are also
traces of cotton, hemp and animal fibers
present. The manufacture of paper out
of rags is, then-fore, lie content!, an east
ern and not a German or Italian inveution,
as has hitherto been supposed.
Out of 5X) oriental and eastern sjeci
mens uot . single one was a raw cotton
paper. All those that were examined had
likewise been clayed like modern papers.
The material used for this purpose was
starch paste, manufactured from wheat,
and in some cases buckwheat. It appears
that animal substances were Dot employed
for claying before the Fourteenth or Fif
teenth century. Boston Transcript
