Suits and Overcoats Unusual interest attaches to a lino jleum exhibit opened in the department ! store of Young & McCombs today. The i exhibition is unique in that it is the I first display of its kind in the history 'of the linoleum business. By means of an ingenious arrangement of! boxes and bottles,- containing the ele ments used in making the product, the Droeress of the orocess. from raw materials to the finished goods, is shown. The display is from the firm of Joseph Wild &. Co., of New York City, the first company to manufacture lin oleum. For the present the exhibit lias been placed in the central show j iwinaqw oi tne quality store. i Accompanying the display is a large i card carrying a description of the pro j cess of linoleum manufacture.

Thus through its I contact with the air, the oil becomes' j oxidised. - The oxidized oil Is next ground up 1 I with gums, thus giving linoleum its elasticity. In the next grinding, it is ; mixed with cork, coloring matter and j i rosin, thus giving the finished product jits hardness. Thence.it passes into the j hopper of a machine which distributes jthe raw liinoleu.n on burlap. The next step is the rollers, w here the linoleum is pressed firai'.y and securely upon the burlap. This is plain linoleum and every step ( in its preparation is shown in the ex hibit. Irlaid linoWum is made by a cutting of various colors of plain lin oleum and inserting them into a pat tern in much the ssm manner as in- laid wood. Printed linoleum is finished by passing the plain linoleum over painted drums. ! Six samples of the finished product .turned out by the Wild company ac company the exhibit.
