It will also give encouragement to those master manufacturers who emp is loy usual women in , the by Potteries _opening to to them employ a good women market only . in For the instance coarser , thoug and least h it

numbers of them from earning an honest livelihood , and it seems to me that the proposed plan is likely to have a strong effect in that way , if sufficient funds are obtained to carry it out on a large scale .
