of it. Very often it won't fit and he must
take it back to the bench and file it a little
or exchange it for another. When he finally
gets it in position and starts to tighten the
heel bolt, he finds that the threads are stripped
or the bolt turns. He must then make
another trip to the bench for a hand-vice or
another bolt. During all this time not only
is the loom stopped, but others which are
needing attention are stopped also. Every
fixer should be provided with one or more
spare rockers with parallel tongue, bolt, etc.,
and keep a stick fitted up ready for the loom.
Only a few minutes will then be necessary
to replace a broken stick and at his leisure

he can fit up another ready for the next
In the United States where the spinning
and weaving are iisuall}^ carried on in the
same building, the looms are of necessity
placed on the ground floor. Almost invari-
ably a hill or some building shuts oft^ a part
of the light from the ver}-^ place w4iere it is
most needed. As this state of affairs can not
be very well remedied, the overseer should
see that he gets all the light possible. The
walls should be frequently white washed and
the windows kept clean. A man occasion-
ally employed doing this will save many
times his wages in increased production and
better cloth. The way the window curtains
are put up has a great deal to do with the
light. They are often simply tacked to the
top of the frame, and when not needed are
twisted and folded on a nail or hook. Even
when this is done at least 20^^ of the
window surface is still covered and at the
top where it is most needed. A much better
plan is to have the curtains wide enough for
the whole window and stretched across the
top on a tight wire. ' The edges are secured
to a cord passing through a screw-eye at
each side. When the cord is pulled one way
the curtain is drawn across the whole surface
of the window and when pulled back is

drawn entirel}^ away and can be folded in a
narrow space at the side.
When tlie hours of labor are long, say
eleven or twelve hours per day, from 15 to
20 per cent of the work must be done by ar-
tificial light, and it is of the greatest impor-
tance that it be as abundant as possible. The
old rule (made where the hours were short)
was to allow one sixteen candle power light
to every four looms. At that time the lamps
cost eighty cents each, while at the present
time much better ones can be had for nine-
teen cents. It is certainly bad management
to economize in this direction. There should
be a lamp between every tvv'O looms, and the
additional expense will be covered in a few
months bv better cloth and more of it. There
are some mills that have a few hundred
looms in a dark basement where for half a
day or more they have to weave by electric
light. The overseers of such mills have all
noticed that with the looms running at the
same speed, and wdth the same class of
weavers, the production was at least 10%
less than from the well lighted sections. I
have spoken of this matter among the little
things, but it is really of the greatest impor-
tance and under no circumstances should be
In running a weave room or in fact any
go Loom-Fixing and Weaving.
room in the mill, in order to obtain the best
results, it is absolutely necessary to keep the
machinery running. I know an old super-
intendent, who on giving some rules to his
son placed this at the head of the list. I re-
member that he once had a small boy perch-
ed on a step-ladder for nearly half a day
pouring water on a hot hanger rather than
stop ten minutes to adjust it. Again, I have
seen a whole mill stopped in order to tighten
a pully which ran only two looms. Of
course there is sometimes a method in such
madness, as some mill men will stop five
minutes in order to make up ten. When
this is done the help are sure to notice it and
get "even" in some way. It is better to lace
a belt at night rather than have a dozen
looms standing while it is done in the day
time. Without entering into a discussion of
the subject the writer has always found it
best to draw the line at Sunday work.
Only a few of the many little things which
need attention have been mentioned- The
wide-awake overseer will always be on a look-
out for such things, and in the long run the
wisdom of his course will be apparent, for suc-
cess is the reward of vigilence.
