Pttn woolen* are adulterated even mqre than silk because they are in gr®*ter demand and also because they Aft Me quite easy to ^nltate. Many a V* yard of cloth sold as “pure wool” con V» tain* from 80 to 00 per cent cotton, ■ft Blanket* sold a* “half w©ol” have fre X* quently been found to contain only 10 V* per cent of pure wool. There are ma FJ chines today which cleverly wrap •V wool around cotton threads, and the Aft finished product has every appearance of being “all wool.” Another method V* °f adulterating is by taking cotton JK cloth and “felting” short woolen X* threads upon its surface by means of heat, moisture and pressure. FJ A purchaser may be fully convinced y, from the appearance and feeling of ■ft cloth that it is all wool, but the only W safe method is to take home the sam V» pie and make tests. Immerse the sam Ffc pie of so called wool in oil of vitriol for X* about two minutes. This will destroy the cotton, but the wool will not be affected. Another test is to moisten a y, sample with 50 per cent nitric acid, ■ft Thl* will turn the wool yellow, but the V* cotton will retain its color.—Washing V* ton Post X~ Harvest From One Ad. Do you know what was the largest FJ harvest ever reaped from an adver y, tisement? ■ft It was the settlement hi Pennsylva nia ni* nt inn non fJarmnn pnlnnkta at I V» Germantown, which was the first Ger P® man settlement in America. We also know that in fifty years double that many thousand Germans came to Wil 11am Penn’s colony. Furthermore, history tells us that AH wars and religious persecutions In V Germany caused this then unparal V» leled exodus of men and women. But what brought them to Pennsyl vanla and so made of this the Ger man commonwealth?

One man in English history owed his success in life almost wholly to his y, Rood looks. It was George Villlers, JMI first duke of Buckingham. James I. was wanting a private secretary, and V* when young Villlers applied for the po sltlon the king was much Impressed with the beauty of his person and the gracefulness of his manners. He gave “ him the place, and that was the begin y» nlng of a great career. From that time to the end of James’ reign the history of England was in great part the per V» xonal history of George Villlers, the ad venturer—first the cupbearer, in a few weeks knighted, then made gentle man of the bedchamber and knight of ™ the Order of the Garter; then succes slvely he was made a baron, a vis count, an earl, a marquis and lord high I* admiral of England. I v Snubbed the Composer. Gustav Mahler had a queer experi ence in Munich one day for which his name was partly responsible. His new symphony •was being rehearsed, and he took advantage of an hour’s intermis sion to get some fresh air. “On return ing to the building,” says a Munich pa per, “he lost his way and tried to reach the hall through a corridor in which plasterers were at work. ‘You cannot pass through here,’ he was told. ‘But I am Mahler.’ (Mahler is the Ger man for painter.) ‘You look it,’ was the unsympathetic reply of the man who blocked his way. ‘We are not ready for the painters yet, so run on.’ And the composer, realizing that argu ment would be useless, plunged into the labyrinth and finally reached his destination.” Matter of Taste.
