SATURDAY WILL BE BARGAIN DAY. but with the Bkins of other fishes it has been found suitable for making travelling bags, brief cases, pocket books, belts and handbags for women. The demand for shark skins for tanning into leather for travelling " bags is greater than the sup ply at the present time. The commissioner of fisheries of the United States, in his annual report, saya that two companies have established fish ing stations along the southern Atlantic coast to provide regular supplies of shark lii.tii fivr fimninrr nnrrMlMPR. These rdants are situated at Morebetfd citv N. C, ana Iiort Meyers,' Fla. One of the companies has a tannery for converting the skins into leather. On the 'Pacific coast .one eotapany ha acquired a fite at Edmunds, Wash., Avjiere it plans to convert aquatic hides into leather and, wilk draw its 'sup--plies from sharks, whales and hair, seals. Other companies are experimenting in the iish leather industry and the commis sioner of fisheries expects that they will engage in the industry on a large scale. ; At the present stajre of the new indus try the shark furnishes the greater pari of' the new leather supply. Difficulty was encountered at first in separating the shagreen (outer covering) of the shark skin in a satisfactory manner. Suitable methods have been provided, however, by tntinn. and the sha- green sometimes remains until the close of the tanning process and then is re moved. . The bureau of standards in Washing ton, which has been co-operating with the bureau of tisheries in establishing the new leather, reports1 that shark skin lea ther is more spongy and oi greater norous texture than mammal leather. When pulled open at right angle to the surface it often exhibits a laminated structure similar in appearance to that of a lowed? matted felt." The 'bureau 'is assembling materials to establish more djfiiiitely the quality of fish leather, such as durability; pliability, porosiity, water absorption, wearing qualities, and also -will make '.fur ther tests to gauge the tensile strength. Tests already made by the bureau of sta'ndards have established from . the . sam ples of fish leather submitted that it pos sesses less strength than mammal leather, such as calf skin .or cow hide, but; that it is soft and pliable and has ample strength for many uses.. Experiments al so are being made to find a suitable sub stance for hardening the skin, to give it the strength . necessary to put wearing qualities into ' shoes. , " The bureau is devoting its major efforts to the shark leather industry because the supply of sharks appears larger than that of other fishes. It has been and remains the practice of fishermen to operate most intensively for those fishes for which the demand is greatest and to permit such predatory forms, such as sharks, possess ing little or no value, to multiply and increase . their depredations on the more highly prized forms. This is an added reason for the development of the shark fishing industry, for as the depredations of the sharks on the food fishes are de creased the supply of these more valuable fishes will increase.

If the high price of cow hides that means shoes pinches your pocketbook loo much when you drop into your fav orite store for the annual spring fitting and purchase, ask the clerk for a pair of shoes made of fish skins. That old ter ror of the seas and the bathing beaches, the shark, has come to the rescue of the shoe wearing public and has offered his hide as a means of lowering the price of leather products during the present high ltvpla Judging from reports received by the government the shark turnislies an excel lent leather for the manufacture of shoes of all kinds. Not only is the skin of the shark used for manufacture into leather, CARL F CAIN MERCHANT TAILOR 159 Main Street GUILFORD CENTER. After a week's visit with his parents, Robert L.
