Woman Hatches Silkworm Eggs on Person in Experiment
[BY A. P. NIGHT WIRE]
TACOMA (Wash.) June 4.
Mrs. Rose Castiglione is endeavoring to establish sericulture on Puget Sound. She obtained 3000 silk worm eggs from Italy. To incubate them she wrapped them carefully, placed them next to her body and let the heat hatch them. She has put them on a mulberry leaf diet and expects to know soon whether silk can be grown profitably in this climate.
