The skins used by the London furriers for making muffs, boas, and tippets, are submit-ted previuusly to a singular process, called tubbing " The workmen are ranged in tubs along the sides of an apartment, or shed, r ou1house, in a yard, or sume secluded spot London. Every tubber, with the exception f those who may be unwell, who may taen wear a loose sort of jacket, which, however, ells against the efficiency and rapidity of his workis altogether naked ! The tub in which the man works reaches up to the waist, nd a thick yellowish cloth is thrown over its op, which the workman keeps very now nd then gathering about him, andnwhich he caedraw aruund him like a bag, so that while t his labor the upper part of his person alone s visible. There is no water or any other Uid used in tubbingfbut the fleshy part of the skins are all buttered, and with the cheap-st butter or scrapings, and in some places ancid butter, when such things are purchase-ble in sufficient quantity. Sawdust is used, which gives the buttera firmer tread, and ends to aid, by its friction, in scouring skins ; prepared, the men tread, and the perspira-tion which sometimes pours from them is onsidered better and readier for the cure of he skins than any butter or other fatty com-ound, which are looked upon as merely aux-iliary to what uozes from the workman's bo-dy, And in this way men's sweat is forced or hours together into the skinny parts of the urs which are tu be'. ladies' muffs, boas, and ippets.
