Beaming. Before beaming, loosen.the belts around the reel,and add the friction, then tie the yarn to the leader. This isgenerally a piece of burlap attached to the beam. If a smallquantity is tied at once, better warp is made, as the knot will besmaller. The amount of friction required must be determined bycircumstances. Do not make a soft beam, and do not add toomuch friction, or it will strain the yarn; 7 or 8 pounds of steamare sufficient for drying purposes, and it is well to shut off thesteam if the dresser is to be stopped for any length of time, or theyarn will be burned. It is also well to have separate connectionsfor the size vat from the steam pipes, so that they can be runindependently. Press Roll. This is a recent invention for making^ betterbeamed warp ; it also allows more length of yarn to be placed onthe beam. It is of great value, because the beam is harder pressed,thereby preventing the layers from sticking to each other, withless possible chance of uneven cloth. 81

IDEAL AUTOMATIC LOOM FOR PLAIN GOODS The Geo. W. Stafford Co. WEAVING. PAET I. TWISTING AND DRAWING IN WARPS. In some mills, so little attention is given to this departmentthat it is no uncommon thing to see a warp cut out of a loom onaccount of bad harnesses. This means extra cost credited to theweaving department, for the man who generally has charge of thisbranch is in turn responsible to the overseer of weaving. Lack ofinspection of harnesses when out of the loom, or in the loom whena warp has been woven out, results in considerable unnecessary ex-pense. Harnesses are frequently cast aside, which by means of alittle repairing could be made almost as good as new. A little tallow brushed on the wire heddles and heddle rodswill make the heddles last two or three years longer than if theywere rubbed with oil, and most certainly longer than if no lubricantwere applied. Tallow does not run as much as oil; when placingit on the harnesses, a brush should be used that will apply it to theh

Special reclaimable parts,such as bolts, nuts, bolsters, springs, brakebeams, etc., are, if necessary, taken to thedepartment where that part of the workis performed. An average of about threecars loaded with scrap are received eachday, and about the same amount of re-claimed, salvaged and repaired material,and scrap sold to dealers, is sent out.
