According to the following, from "The Economist," the United States can produce the best wool of any country in the world :— " By recent scientific researcheson the part of PetejjA. Browne, Esq., of Pennsylvania, it has been established that the United States can outrival the world in wool as in cotton. Thus, Spanish sheep yielding naturally wool 2,000 to the inch, carried to England, degene-, rated to 900 to the inch, and brought to the United States recpvered to 2,100, or finer than the original. Thefact being once established that our soil and climate produce finer wool than other countries, will give to our manufacturers invariably the superiority in cloths, if the manufacturer is allied in his interest to the grower.
