HOW KHAKI WAS DISCOVERED. .FORTUNE FOR A LIEUTENANT. Khaki, the color which will render our troops so difficult to see, was dis covered by a happy accident. The British troops in India wore a cotton uniform which, when it was new, was khaki in color, but after a vsiit to the laundry was indescribable. A Man chester business man, discussing this defect, remarked casually that a for tune awaited the man who could find a khaki dye that neither sun, soap, nor soda would fade. A young offi cer heard the remark, hired a skilful native dyer ,and began the search. Years passed in fruitless experiments till one day, turning over a heap of rags, relics of their failures, they chan ced upon one piece which was still khaki ,though the laundry had worked its will. But it had rec.eived no spe cial treatment, so far as they knew, ex cept that it had fallen into a metal dish. That was the secret.
