'A "Singer" Is Always the Prido

' The Slnper Sewing Machine is recognized
nil over the world as the model of ecwing
machine perfection, and nil other niakes
are judged by the Singer standard. That
is why every woman is proud to own a Singer.
It needs no apology nor explanation. Singer Sewing
Machines cover the field; either Oscillating Shuttle,
Rotary Hook, Vibrating Shuttle or Automatic Oiain
Stitch. When a woman can point to the name SINGER
on her machine her friends realize she has the best
machine of its type that money can buy and every
woman knows this.
Singer Sewing Machines are sold only at Singer
Shops or by Singer Salesmen never through dealers
or under other names. Look for the big, red "S."

Bryce, British ambassador at Wash

had in no way influenced the views

Theodore Roosevelt was private, Mr.
Bryce could not have any knowledge

Adopting strong resolutions favor

custom of laudatory planks in praise
of state and government officials, the
republican state convention named
four delegates-at-large to the na

"big four" is: Henry J. Allen,

wild worm. As raveled out from the
cocoon the silk is uneven In texture,
and this unevenness gives that'
quality or roughness which wo ex
pect to And in pongee. The largest
proportion of silk fabrics is made
from the cocoon spun by the culti
vated worm. If perfect cocoons aro
used and the silk merely unwound,
tho result is the extremely valuable
product called "reeled silk." But a
much cheaper silk may be made by
using tho imperfect cocoons, or
those from which tho moths have
been allowed to escape. This is still
pure silk, but ' these cocoons aro
made up of countless short fibres
instead of the one continuous fila
ment of the perfect cocoon. By tho
use of spinning machinery similar to
that used, in cotton manufacture, this
wasto silk is carded and spun into a
product called spun silk. If this is
of good quality it can be made into
a most satisfactory fabric, but when
a poor quality is used and factory
vaste added, the resulting silk is
decidedly not worth while. Charles

WHERE TIES SILK COMES FROM
Pure silk is produced from two
sources: the mulberry silk, or the

iti 1 , lum uie cocoon of the
cultivated worm feeding on the mul
berry leaf, and the wild silk, or that
obtained from the cocoon of the wild
worm, which usually feeds on oak
leaves. The difference in the food
and care of the worm itself has a
decided effect upon the cocoon and
the resulting fibres. The silk of the
wild worm is inferior in smoothness
and firmness of quality. The luster
is less than that of cultivated silk
on the other hand, wild silk is often
the stronger. The cocoons of either
variety are always ecru in color. All
