Furs Preserved by Cold [Newspaper Article] — Port Fairy Gazette — 26 January 1914
Furs Preserved by Cold .Wien, the "life" of a fur garment is considered in relation to its cost, the economical quality is a high one, par ticularly to-day, when s:cenoe has effec ted so perfect a preserver, as cold stor age. This development of. preserva tion, which actually-- arrests natrural deterioration caused by evaporation of the natural oil in the leather anid hair of furs in temperate and .hot atmos-. pheres, apart from the immunity, it provides against ravages -- by moths. prolongs' the life of the commodity in a wonderful degree.
