LONDON. Jan. 11.—The many friend®
who were attracted to Mr*. Hail Ca<ue
by the sweet and dainty womanliness of
tbe famous author's wife, will be glad to
know that she treasures as the happiest
experience of bygone days the that
she made through the United Slates.
Much as the people of the United States
were attracted by her sympathetic face
and the brightness and geniality of her
manner*, however, to see Mrs. liall Calne

country. is spend in* her days in Lebanon,
lit. She has Sr-en ths marvelous growth
of the 'hread tndustry in ths United 3:ates
and often, when she feels In the humor,
s » ean recall the early days -when that
grand industry consisted cf one small
spooling mili in Dracut. a little tcwu © *
Long ago the swiftly ffowir ; g Menrtmac
river furnished the power necessary to
drive ths machinery that wound about the
9pool the fine thread tisat was imported
from abroad—for America had not yet cie
v:.c;tl the thread manufacturing indus
try. This little flant, in which Martha
Little and fcer sister worked, has sine*
grown to be the great industry whose own
ers hava made their name a household
ward in the land.
Lswson was the name ef th# man who
then owned the little m il which has since
grown with such wonderful strides. It was
he who brought Miss Little and her sister
over from Scotland to loo* after ths spool
ing cf the thread.
One of the recommendations that com
mended h»r to the Messrs. Lawson wis
that she held a perfect record. This meant
that in the exacting task of counting accu
rately the lengths as he rapidiy reeled
them upon the spool, in keeping ths ac
count correctly and winding exactly ths
required lenx-hs upon tns spool, she had
never been found in error or remiss in the
other requirements of ths work by :he
careful and repeated tests mud* by the
overseers, who took cognizance not only of
the style of the work, but of the accuracy
of the court, froin which it seems that the
then established guarantee and still famil
iar representation on ths labels, "warrant
ed 20v yards," was conscientiously main
The young woman undertook the trans
atlantic journey, then no trifling undertak
ing, in company with her sister Elizabeth,
IfKivlns behind her parents and her home.
They embarked in th« Neptune, a sailing
vessel. in March, 1*44 and were ten wee its
upon the sea, encountering a severe storm,
losing both main and mizzen masts, which
being found by otner vessels, the Neptune
was reported io<»t. Put they were finally
driven into Halifax, and three month* af
ter the young women sailed from .Liver
pool they reached their destination, Dia-
CUt, Jdai»9.
Mrs. Davidson, formerly Miss Little, was
the tlrst to operate a spindle in the n« w
factory, and in June of the year IH4,
through her hands, the infant industry of
America produced its first spool.
The machine was a comparatively sim
ple affair in apptaran e and in manner of
construction, not wholly unlike the famil
iar spinning wheels of old-fashioned Nt w
England households. Such was the em
ployment then, in humble comparison with
the perfected spindle which performs mul
tifold duty In t. at capacity new, and tm
latest improvement in which, recently
n-ade. th* old lady noted with Interest.
Mrs. Davidson continued her employ
ment at the Draeut mill, together with her
sister, for about a year, when homesick
ness impelled them to return to their Scot
tish home. But they returned to America
a year later, and on board ship met John
Semples, i-on of Samuel Semples, w ho was
foreman of a mill erected in the meantime
by "Sammy" Shrevea, a quaker, at
Shrevesville, N". J , now Smithviiie. The
sisters were pre\*ailed upon by young Sem
ples to change their destination for
Shrevesvllle and accept employment in the
Shreves mill. This plant was equipped for
the < ntire pr->cesit. turning out the tinish< d
product from the r..w cotton, and Was
probably the fecond mill in the history of
American thread manufacture. Here tht
two sisters, who had been pioneers in this
i.ne of work In the new world, did duty in
\ariois capacities, until Shreves, ruined
l>y s-'-. urlty oblicati n.s, failed in business.
Samuel Samples, the foreman of the de
funct mill, at established a mill of his
own at Mount Holly, N. J., where the-e
two young »umca followed to pursue their
favorite employment. Samuel S mp!es -a is
destined to became a thread magnate in
this coufttry, *nd thirty years age* his
brard of this domestic article was one of
rise most familiar and popular known to
the An: rkan trado. Tin re is a stror. f
touch of romance In tie fact that one of
the sisters. Elizabeth, whose connection
with the thread manufacture in America
was so historic and who had met the
y unger S mples on L ard ship on her r -
turn to this country was, after a number
of j • ars in his father's > mp! y, to become
t! bride of this John S< m-. l-»s, who, aft* r
