automatically close. These openings are utilized in winter for circulating the air from the weave room into the basement.
It has been found that this method of ventilating, cooling, and humidifying, has been exceedingly satisfactory. There are no parts of the room that are not thoroughly ventilated, and there are no "dead" spaces where condensation can occur. The air is kept perfectly sweet and clean and the conditions, as far as humidity is concerned, are good. The cooling has been very successful, as appears from the table attached hereto. The temperatures in this weave shed have been kept much lower than the temperatures in the old "A" weave shed, and on hot days have kept as low as, or lower than, the temperature of the outside air.
It is believed that this cooling tends to better work and to attract a higher class of operatives. The whole system has been so satisfactory that the Farr Alpaca Company have decided to completely rebuild their old "A" weave shed along these lines.
The PRESIDENT. Are there any questions to be asked?
Mr. W. W. CROSBY. I am much interested in what Mr. GREEN has to say regarding the construction of the gutter, particularly with reference to his use of galvanized iron in connection with the asbestos paper. I am not sure whether Mr. GREEN and the other members of the Association are familiar with the so-called asbestos protected metal, or, not, but in this connection, I should like to bring it to their attention. This material consists essentially of a sheet of steel to which is attached, by a process of cementation on each side, a sheet of asbestos felt. The gauge of the steel and the thickness of the asbestos felt may be specified to suit any local conditions. I have used this material in numerous cases, and am much pleased with it. It strikes me that in this particular situation, it would
be particularly useful, for the asbestos felt is so firmly attached to the metal that the metal cannot be injured by rusting where there might be condensation on either side. I should suppose that all the advantages of the galvanized iron would be conserved, with the added advantage of entire security against corrosion.
Has Mr. GREEN any further explanation
to make in regard to that question?
Mr. SAMUEL M. GREEN. I have nothing more.
