A Tailor Advice a- 1o Him to Detect Cut-1
ton Warp and SboJdy la CIotli.
'The stuff in this ait of black
clothes you made for me t3 not what '
I took it for," said one of an uptown
, tailor's customers to him the other j
' day, in a reporter's hearing UI have

"That's because of the cotton warp
in the material, which the scouring
soon makes apparent," said the tailor,
'JJat you assured me particularly
that the material waau't shoddy."
'"So I did, and I told you the truth.
But at the same time I told ou that
it was cheap American goods, and
that is just what it is a well-appearing
American woolen manufacture,
with a large percentage of cotton
wnrpr If you had wanted shoddy,
1 could have sent jott where you'd
have got something still cheaper, for
shoddy is a kind of goods 1 won't
make up for love or money. But, if
you will remember, I showed you
much better, but more expensive
goods, of both foreign and American
manufacture, which I offered to rec
ommend heartily enough. But you
were bent on liayitig tho poorer but
well-appearing goods and so consult
ed your own wishes instead of my
The customer heemed to have noth
ing to offer against these statements,
.nud presently took Ins departure,
apparently much dissatisfied with
himself, if not with the tailor.
"How," asked the reporter, 'is an
inexperienced buyer to distinguish
between all-wolleu goods and the ma
terial containing cotton warp, of
which that gentleman was complain
ingr' "By merely raveling the rough
edge of the material and inspecting
the threads," said the tailor. Any
one can tell a cotton thread from a
woolen thread. Tho one will break
short in two, on being tested, while
the other will fray and Hoss out, like
yarn and worsted, in this way you
can readily detect a mixture of cot
ton warp in a sham all-woolen fabric."
"How do you detect slioildv m
'In just the same way. and even
more easily. Pray out two or three
threads from the rough edge and uu
twist them. If they contain shoddy
it will drop out of the twist, somo
times like sand, and then again iu an
impalpable dust, that will like enough"
make you Bneeze. It youu inhale
enough of the stuff it would bo apt
to give you both a headache and sore
throat, for most shoddy is rank poi
son. Ever in a shoddv factory?"
''Well, 1 was, and I know some
thing about it Fact is I worked in a
shoddy factory jtiBt one week when
I was a much younger and more ne
cessitous persou than I am now. Ne
cessitous? Well, I should say so, for
nothing short of starvation could
have driven me to seek employment
in that poison mill. Talk about quicksilver-mining
aud that sort of thing
for turning live workers into galvan
ized corpse 1 "Why, such employ
ment is positively invigorating com
pared with a shoddy mill. I stood it
just one week, and was then laid up
for six months. Lucky I switched
off when I did, or I'd have been
atrophied into kingdom come long
ago. iwen as it was it was a close
4,How is shoddy made?"
'I can tell you how it was made
twelve or fifteen jears ago, when I
served my week's apprenticeship at
it. They may have made improve
ments in the milling since then,
though, of course, the product itself
is just the same mean, swindling,
poisonous stuff it always was. I was
placed over a sort of machine some
thing like a patent straw cutter, only
in lieu of straw, you fed it with cloth
scraps, remnants, clippings and rags.
These pass through the teeth of the
machine on to revolving knives, just
like - straw cutter, which minced
them up pretty fine. After that they
passed through another and yet an
other machine, getting minced finer
and finer at each operation, until the
stuff was reduced to a coarse powder.
This powder was then bolted, aud the
flue powder or dust that passed
through the last sieve was the beauti
ful stuff called shoddy, or flock. Then
came the dyeing process, and the
dirty job was complete. I never got
any further-than feeder to thepnmarv
machine. Although I kept a wet
sponge tied constantly over my month
and nostrils, the work was almost too
mnch for me at the end of the first
day. "Why, once an hour I would
squeeze out that sponge muzzier, and
the water that came from it would be
blacker than your hat, and smell
worse than any ragpicker's sack. At
the end of the week I pocketed my SC
wages as if I had stolen it, and 'slid
for home like a rocket, where I was
sick abed a long time afterward."
"Howdid the other operatives stand
it so much better than youi"
"Some of them didn't, while those
that did had cast-iron throats aud
lungs like bellows, I suppose. Some
men can stand anything."
"How is the shoddy mixed with the
"It is simply twisted up with the
warp before the weaving. This gives
fictitious weight and durability to a
fabric whose native flimsiness would
otherwise betray tho worthlessness of
the woof. Young man beware of
shoddy, whose presence in cloth yon
can always detect iu the manner I
I have told yon."

"Fnllint' is the last or finishinc
process through which cloth passes,
or should pass before it is ready for
the wearer's use. It is u process by
which cloth is scoured, cleaused aud
thickened. It consists of a series of
pestlesor stampers, which alternate
ly fall into and rise out of a trough,
through which the cloth is being
passed, along with fuller's earth or
some other cleansing material. The
process, besides ridding the cloth of
the grease and oil used in preparing
wool, prevents it from shrinking

instance, that looked large euough,
aud even overlarge, when first put on,
but which, nevertheless, shrink up
too small, or all out of shape, after
encountering a single hoar of wet

But how can an "inexperienced
person tell whether it has been prop

"He can't There 1- no way by
which he can. His only safeguard in
this respect is to take his tailor's
word for it. Heuce how" important it
is for every man to have an honest

material, beware of shoddy, and put
vour faith in an honest tailor."
