JAPANESE MARTEN.—Size 16X5 in. Is of a woolly nature with rather coarse top hair and quite yellow in colour. It is dyed for the cheap trade for boas and muffs, but it is not an attractive fur at the best of times. It lacks a silky, bright and fresh appearance, and therefore is unlikely to be in great demand, except whereeconomy is an object. Value 6s. 6d. to 18s. 6d.
