Tho ttld and New Method of Making moves
Rock Isi,am. Aug. 14. The early
process of making gloves differed
greatly from that practiced at the
present time. The gloves were then
cut from skins-witha common shears.
The patterns were made of paste
board or shingles, and werelaid upon
the leather and traced with sharp
pointed pieces of lead, called "plum
mets." The gloves were rough and
primitive in style and workmanship,
but well adapted to the times. Later
on, when the industry began to give
promise of a prosperous future, many
families became engaged in it the
men cutting the gloves and the wives
and daughters stitching them, usu
ally placing one mitten on the seat
beneath them and sitting upon it
while plying the needle on its mate.
This method partiatly served the pur
pose of "laying off" table, straight
ening the mitten out, and having a
tendency to make it soft and flexible.
The modern glove industry that
is to say, the manufacture of gloves
by the methods now in vogue
dates from 1835, when great im
provements in shape resulted from
the introduction of dies, of new
shapes and proportions, the inven
tion of Xavier Jouvin, of Grenoble,
France. Priorto Jouvin's time, in
the manufacture of fine French
gloves, the required shapes were
marked out by patterns, as was
the custom in this country,
a method that was slow and
inexact. The coarser English gloves
were cut by "punchers," or dies of
false proportions, which soon gave
way to the superior "system Jow
vin." In 1876 the French and Ger
man machines were introduced in the
United States, thus making the
American manufactures equal with
those in Europe. Yours,
