Hygienic Dress Cutting. DEMONSTRATIONS AT MERTHYR. Yesterday (Thursday) at the Town Hall, the Mayoress (Mrs. James) presided over an inter- esting meeting1 of ladies who had met to see the new European Hygienic system of cutting and fitting, which was introduced to Merthyr for the first time pablioly by Madame Lowther Knight, the inventress. Mrs. James gave some account of the com- mencement of the work, and mentioned that the Queen, when Princess of Wales, accepted and acknowledged one of Madame Knight's first system, and that Princess Christian had also given her name as a patron (both letters were in the room). This, she thought, greatly in the lecturer's favour. She presided because she thought it was a good thing to know how to cut-out and: fit, and that whether it was for home use or professional some system was necessary. If Madame Kmght could prove her two points, simplicity and fit, she, for one, would like to learn such a delightful method, and her daughter, too. She thought she could not do better than ask Madam Lowther Knight to giige her demonstration. Madam Knight at once complied, and ask- ed for a lady to measure. In a few moments the measurements were taken, and each part of the pattern drawn entirely from the chart. It seamed incredible when the perfect fit was on that it could have been produosd by one piece of board. The utter simplicity was proved by the fact that Miss Williams, of the "Tyst" office, who had her nret lesson on Monday last, bad finished the full course by Wednesday, and was there to draft from the chart without re- ferring to the book. She had in three lessons learnt how to fit any ordinary figure. In proof of this statement she drafted a pattern much to the astonishment and pleasure of all present, who were naturally proud that Merthyr leads the way in South Wales for one of the quickest and best pupils Madame Knight has taught. We understand that a class has been formed and will commence to-day (Friday), at Mil- bourne Buildings, Glebeland-street, where Mme. Knight will attend from 10 a m. to 12, and from 3 to 6. Residents who need' such valuable information should take this, the only oppor- tunity possible, of learning from tOO actual inventress. As Madame Knight is on tour, she can only devote a limited time to each town. —
