SILK FROM WOOD PULP. There will shortly be started in Lancashire a new industry of a character so novel that the mention of it may be suggestive of an absurdity rather than of sober truth. It will be one for nothing less than the manufacture of silk out of wood pulp. Quixotic as the idea seems, it has already been established that silk, or rather artili'-ial silk, can be so made that it is especially suitable for working-up with natural silk, cotton, or wool, for dress material, ribbons, trimmings, church decorations, vestments, « £ :c. that the artificial silk can scarcely be distinguished from that for which we have hitherto depended on the silkworm and that it can be sold at prices much lower, and still leave a substantial profit. A factory, which will cost is to be built near, to Manchester for the manufacture of artificial silk yarn from wood-pulp for sale to weavers who will work it up by means of their existif ? machinery.
