ufacture the umbrella has been' so
far advanced as to have, its cover;
On, but this before it has been oth
erwise ' finished and fitted with its
handle, it may need to be steamed.
It is of course essential that the
cover shbuloj fit everywhere with I
drumhead-like smoothness, ..but as
it comes now from the coverers. it
may be that the curtain, that part
of the covet that is down in the
'widest part of the panels,.Jbetw.een j
the ends" of the-ribs, is loose and
full. Ifc is the work of ' the; steamer
to take out that fullness.
; The steamer sits on a table with
a- pile5 of ' umbrellas 1 near on one
side. In -front of him at a little dis
tance is what looks als .much as any
thing like a ' big galvanized iron
watering-pot with a long spout and
with the . reiguTation ' ? " Bunflower
sprinkler top at the" end except that
this tip is larger. At";tHe end of its
long spout 'this tip . is brought up
to a point convenient for the oper
ator, and" throujlr its many perfo
rations' there is : constantly emerg
ing a rrentle lit'tle haze of steam. " .
The steamer picks up an, umhrel
la, opens it, turns it's handle: to 'the
front a::d theriv holding it .so, steam-'

ly but steadily with the' curtain part.
, of the cloth panels 'held over the !
steam. By this process the fullness
is taken up and the cloth in every
panel al around shrunk to perfect
smoothness. ' :
Before the umbrejja g'oes.through
the next process in its 'niariuf actiyrp;
and finishing it is rolled for greater
convenience . in handling. The
steamers do this rolling. A sjteamer'
will steam umbrellas for an hour or

will roll the umbrellas- he has.
