Furniture upholstered in wool or mo
hair Is attractive, and ninny people
buy It for their homes. Unless proper
precautions are taken, however, In
Jury by moths Is apt to occur. The
bureau of entomolgy of the United
States Department of Agriculture be

woolen covers cannot be maintained
In good condition indefinitely if cer
tain control measures are used.
The adult insect, or clothes moth,
which may be seen flying shout it
practically any season of the year in
heated houses, does not eat the fab
rics. It Is seeking a good place to lay
Its egps, so that when the larva or
worm hatches it will have Its favorite
food right at hand. The larvae eat
the fabric on the surface of the furni
ture and also ?et under the cover and
eat the wool threads that go through
to the back.
Many manufacturers now treat fab
rics to be used for furniture covers
to make them resistant to moth at
tack. Another precaution taken by the
manufacturer Is to place a layer of
cotton batting between the padding
and the cover of the piece of furni
ture. It Is essential that this layer of
eotton batting should be continuous,
without breaks through which the
moths ran work their way to the un
der side of the fabric. Fumigation at
the warehouse or by the furniture
dealer Is also used to assure freedom
from Infestation In the piece when It
Is delivered to the purchaser.
In buying upholstered furniture, the
choice of leather, silk, cotton, linen, or
rayon covers eliminates the moth prob
lem from the start. Feather cushions
are not Immune to moth damage, but
are rarely disturbed. If mohair or
wool covers are selected. It la well to

are a number of other pages for In

as accounts payable and receivable, a
