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. Bottle
No. 1 contains the linseed oil, which
forms the basin of the linoleum roix-
t-1 : i 1 .. i 1 1 .1 . . i . : . i i .
and the mixture is poured over sus-j
Ipended cloth sheets. 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. There is a sam
I pie of battleship linoleum, the heaviest
'made, anotner of printed linoleum and
pieces of plain lalaid linoleum.
' On a display card the history of the
Wild company is given in brief. This
concern began the manufacture of lin
oleum in the town of I-inoleumville, on
Staten Island. N. V., in lhT-l. this con
cern being the first in the fieid.
