From the Cleveland Plain Dealer.
Does any one ever see a specimen of
the old Paisley shawl nowadays? Tet
how much in vogue they used to bet
Paisley has been famous for Its tex
tile fabrics as far back as the year 1696,
and the industry grew steadily until In
182.0 there were as many as 7,060 looms
In the town.
About the beginning of the last een
tury the weavers commenced to Imitate
the renowned Kasmlr shawls, some of
which were brought to western Europe
by the French on their return from the
campaign in Egypt.
The Ill-fated Empress Josephine wore
one of the Kashmir productions, and the
graceful manner in, whleh she did so
gave an impetus to the fashion for
donning ouch articles of apparel. There
was a demand -for something similar.
Tho cost and difficulty of obtaining the
real article led to imitations, snd Pals-
lay gained the first position by its splen

It was somewhere about the year 1806
that the making of tho Paisley shawl
was commenced, but in the year 1820
the hand loom was perfected for this
kind of manufacture, and It at once
achieved such great popularity that the
sale Increased by leaps and bounds and
in 1844 the output of the Scottish town
was valued at $5,000,000 per annum.
The sale continued with periods of
