National Cotton Week Next week the wholesale and retail drapery

trades will concentrate their efforts on interesting the public in Manchester cotton fabrics. It is certain that the fabrics and designs displayed will surprise those who generally look abroad for anything 'particularly striking. It is satisfactory that the industry is at last learning something from' American methods. Although the products of' Manchester have long been unsurpassed, only a few firms have tried to bring their excellence to the knowledge of the consumers in this country. We wish this promising movement every possible success.
