Worsted cloths are less often adulterized than woolens and are more easily  detected. A cotton worsted is a lie on  the face of it, for the cotton stands out  with prominence. But often a cotton  thread is twisted with a worsted  thread, and to determine its presence  it Is only necessary to take thc twist  out of tiio dread and then examine its  component parts.  Cotton, having a long staple, can be  carded and combed with wool to be  spun into worsted yarn. This is done  to cheapen the cost of production. Cotton is carded and spun with wool and  shoddy, not so much to cheapen tho  yarn, for cotton is generally as expensive as some shoddies, but is intra-  ' dueed to give strength or spinning  dualities to the stock. In many cases  the shoddy is of such short staple that  It -would not stand the drawing in  ppinning, and, as it would make the  vast nt the yarn too\high to put in  .ncv.s-li wool to. give that lacking  strength, cotton is put in for this 'pui*  ,������)se.  Tbe percentage of cotton in a fabric  can be determined in this manner:  Take a small piece of cloth and weigh  j St. Now boil it for five minutes in a 5  1 per cent solution of caustic soda.. Take  out what is left, and, if any, it is all  cotton. Tbe wool will all be dissolved.  The percentage of shoddy cannot be determined except by experience.  A cloth or yarn with shoddy in it is  easily detected by its feci. Cloth mode  of all new wool is softer feeling than  one containing shoddy, for the' latter  has lost that new, soft, springy feel  peculiar to wool.���������American Woo1- and  Cotton Reporter.

To appreciate the simplicity and ease of  washing with Sunlight Soap in the Sunlight  way you should follow directions.  After rubbing on the soap, roll up each  piece, immerse in the water, and go away.  Sunlight Soap  will do its work in thirty to sixty minutes.  Your clothes will be cleaner and whiter than if washed  in the old-fashioned way with boiler and hard rubbing.  Equally good with hard or soft water.  Lever Brothers Limited,  Toronto ' 153  I .

The third   week of the   session,   has  passedwithout   the  occurrence  of  any  thing of a        startliug       nat  ure,   although   the   opposition did  their best to derive a little comfort of thevotcs of Mr. Macgowan  and Mr. iloustonwhich placed the  government in the minority on the  motion of Dr. King to report progress oh the "Timber Bill." The  fourth member for Vancouver- has  given his explanation of the occurence, he misunderstood the ��������� issue,  or aft any rate the construction that  mibht 'be,placed on his vote,.' and  having declared that he is a. firm  supporter, of  the government and  having   supported   them     on    .'subsequent-divisions there ; does   not    appear     to   We   any     reason   why  should   be  hailed   with delight  the   opposition   as  a   bolter.  T'he member, for Nelson will prob  ably continue to plough his "lonely  furrow," and to vote according to  his own sweet will, but his record affords little satisfaction to those  sitting- 011 thc Liberal benches, a.nd  it will be a matter of surprise if on  any government measure he does  not  support   the  administration.

It is understood that the  princess skirt has not gained great  popularity throughout the country,  but as a city fash-ion it did well  through the fall, and will again be a  factor in the collection of lines lor  spring selling. , s  Separate Coats.  It is safe to predict, judging from  the active garment business ol the  fall season,, that the sale of suits  and also separate coats in -the spring  will both be important. In some seasons when the suit has sold well,  something of a falling off in the demand for separate jackets has been  noted. Frequently women wear" their  suit jackets with waist and skirt  costumes. This sort of an incongruous combination seems inadvisable in  the extreme. If a woman buys a  natty tailor-made suit, the jacket or  coat belonging to it should be worn  as- a complete costume, and not with  other skirts. Many separate skirts  will be worn, and it will also he one  of the best waist seasons in recent  years. For this reason a good line  of separate short coats of some kind  will be necessary. Some of the merchants are already buying coverts a,-  most exclusively, while others are  taking tweeds, Scotch mixtures,  light-weight kerseys and broadcloth.  Dry Goods Notes.  It is said that wide belts are popular owing largely to the trend toward Empire gowns.  Fitted bags are always popular and  each season the fittings are more and  more elaborate.
