Furs Preserved by Cold When tlio "life" of a fur garment is considered in relation to its cost, the ec momieal quality is a high one, par ticularly to-dny, when scienee has effec ted so perfect a preserver as cold stor age. This development of preserva tion, wllieh actually arrests na'iural deterioration caused by evaporation of th9 natural oil in the leather and hair of furs in temperato and hot atmos pheres, apart from the immunity it provides against ravages by moths, prolongs tiro life of the commodity in a wonderful degree.
