, The extreme antiquity of the arts
nf mfnnin? and w earl us is not more
remarkable than the slowness of their
i derelopinent into their present condl-
tion. We cannot fix a date for their
I primitive origin, but it is certain that
'they retained the greater part of their
i primitive character . until the begin
ning of the . eighteenth century. Then,
aa from the earliest days, wool, like
J all other textile materials- was spun
..entirely by hand. ' -1
The most primitive method of spin
ning was by means of the distaff and
spinole. It is said .nowadays that any
thing which has two ends can be in
corporated into a woolen thread and
cloth. But for the. purposes 6f the
primitive Bpinner the fiber , to be spun
must have ; had sufficient length to
enable it to be manipulated, drawn .out
J and twisted by the fingers of the spin
, ner; and even so the manual dexter
ity whereby fibers tx6V more than a
few inches in length-Hne longest cot
ton fiber, that of the best Sea Island
cotton, is unaer two inches long into
a continuous "and uniform thread
many miles" in' length Isone;of the
most wondrous manuesiauons oi pri
mitive human ingenuity.". The spindle
was a round stick of wood about si
foot or. less In length according to
the material to be handled tapering
to either end, to which the extremity
of the yarn to be spun is attached. It
was surrounded near its center, by a
perforated disk or whorl made of clay,
stone, wood or other suitable matei
lal It said that a ; potato . or - other
tuber , was ' sometimes used for the
purpose Its -function being to give
steadiness and momentum to the spin
ale in its rotation. The distaff was a
longer stick of swood with a loose
ball or bunch of the material to bd
spun suitably prepared by processes
which need not here s be described
attached to Its uppqf end. ' .
The spinner either fixed the lower
end of the distaff In her girdle or car
ried it under her left arm. Then draw
ing out; a prepared end of the yarn,

'either by twirling It with the fingers,
j or more ; commonly' by rolling It be

quired speed of rotation was attained.
As soon as it was loose- fresh sup
j plies of fiber were . drawn out from
' the distaff and - manipulated by both
hands . into an ' equal and uniform
strand of yarn or thread having the
degree- o'f attenuation required. The
yarn thus- formed' was then - wound
on the spindle until the point; was

among the great reformers only John

enlightenment as the British isles are
