The rare spectacle of seeing the - manu - facture of silk from the raw material np to the finished product, has drawn thousands of people to the show windows of C. K. Whitner & Son's dry goods establishment, 442 Penn street, to witness this unusual sight. The exhibit, is made by the Natchaug Silk Company, of which Whitner & Son are heavy buyprs and, have sold their dress silks for years. Q. L. Mc4voy is th,e company's representative and the exhibition will be held for one week. To look at the unsightly cocoon one would hardly believe that this creature is capable of producing a substance to form an article of dress so dear to the heurts of the female sex. The exhibit is very complete and contains specimens of the cocoous from the first day's growth np to the lortieth, when the insect begins to spins the filaments. To obtain the silk fabric the progress of the worm's development is arrested at the cocoon, or otherwise the formation of a butterfly wouiu oe tne result.

In about ten days the moth emerges from its cocoon, deposits about 350 eggs, and in a few days dies. There are about 40,000 KmffiLIS hcient silk to girdle the eartn. Cocoons range in length from 300 to 400 yards in one continuous thread, which is l - 2150th of an inch in diameter composed of two fibres. Ten to twelve pounds of leaves consumed by the worms produce one pound of cocoons, and three and three - quarter pounds of cocoons yield one pound of raw silk.

CONGRESSMAN ERDMAN IS BE - oittstu BY APPLICANTS FOR OFFICE, Ex - Congressman Bruuner's Caodidate - aud jiuernate ior a (lauetshlp at West Point Both railed George Heffner'e Aspirations. The Washington correspondent of the Philadelphia Press contains the following paragraphs of interest to the people of Berks oounty: Under date of Thurs - ujr, ou instant, ne writes tnns: Representative Erdman, of the Ninth District, arrived in this city this afternoon and will pay the customary visits to the departments to - morrow. Both he and Mr. Hines declare that they are wurnea more witn applicants for little fourth - class postmasterships than by office - seekers of any other kind. They of course, are solicited every once in a while to aid some of their constituents wuoaesireto serve ths lnnrnmnt ;n higher positions. Mr. Hines is doing what he can to have Mr. Conniff, of wiiKes - uarre, made Col ector nf th. iwemn internal Kevenuo District, and Mr. Erdman finds that several of his constituents are anxious for appoint ments to Consulships abroad. HEFFNEE HAS BEEN imnin One of these applicants is Mr ri,... Heffner, of Kutztown, who has embraced in his petition a list af nina he thinks he could fill very acceptably. He would be very willing to undertake vuo uuues ui consul ueneral at Paris me aawiy ana lees stnnnnt ouiue iY4,vuu a year, mere are several other places in France, where h u be willing to be stationed, stlthnnoh ramiiraaiB nbs mucu lower ugure. He might be induced to accept a small commercial agency, as his petition is said fa contain a proviso that in case the larger salaried positions are not available he would be willing to accept one at an "ordinary salary." Mr. Heffner it is understood, believes that he is peculiarly fitted to represent the (i abroad from the lact that he spent some six months, a few years ago, in travel pn the Continent. In his peteurinations ne claims to have covered over 11,000 miles. On h's ;eturn home he prepared a lecture entitled "Travels in Europe," which he has delivered through various parts of his native county and adjoining districts in Eastern. Pennsylvania. He has also written a book on the subject which will likely be filed with his papers at the Stat Department to show the grasp he has on foreign atliiirs, Mr.' EmestNakeofCatasauqua,Lehighcounty, another of Mr. Erdnmu's constituents, desires to be appointed Consul to Prague, Austria. One of Mr. Nake's recommendations is that he was a member of the Pennsylvania Legislature, some years ago. CADETSHiPS tOU PKNN - WLVANIANS. Mr - . Erdman received notice from the War Department to - day that the candidate and alternate appoint! by his predecessor, Mr. Brunner, for a cadetship at West Point, have both failed, through Physical disability, ! he is requested to fall the vacancy. Lloyd Henry, a son of Cdtouel Guy V. Henry, of the regular army, now a student at Lehigh University, is a candidate for the appointment. There is some question, however, about his being a resident of Mr. Erdman 's district, preventative Hines has an appointment to the Naval Academy to make from his district, the young man appoiuted from there having failed. He intends to hold a competitive examina tion ana appoint the boy making the u'gueei, icomi, AMUSEMENTS. Grand Opera House.
