The tiny tip of white metal seen on the under side of the Point of a gold pen may be of platinum, but it is more likely to be iridium. Iridium is a very hard metal, and It is expensive. It costs about four times as much as gold The purpose of the iridium tip is. of course, to give the pen a more durable point. The gold pen maker buys his gold at the assay office in bars of pure 24 carat gold. which he melts and alloys with silver and copper to the degree of fine- ness required. Gold of 14 carats is used in the manufacture of the best American gold pens, that being the de gree of fineness deemed most suitable for pen use, but good pens made in this country for sale in France are made of 18 carats, the French govern- ment requiring that all articies exposed for sale in that country as made of gold shall be of not less than 18 car- ats. The gold from which the pens are to be made is rolled and rerolled until what was originally a thick, heavy bar of gold has been rolled Into a thin gold ribbon about three feet in length by four inches wide. Then this gold rib- ben is put Into a machine which stamps out of it pen shapes, all still flat. Then on the top of each of these pen shapes is fused the iridium point, and then the shapes go to a slitting machine, which cuts the slit in the pen. From the slitting machine the pens go through another, which gives them their rounded, familiar pen form, and then the pens are ground and pol- Ished and finished ready for use. American gold pens in fountain pens or as dip pens are sold in every coun- try in Europe in competition with pens of British or of German manufacture. and under the same competition they are sold throughout the world in South America, Africa, Japan, China, wher- ever pens are used.--New York Sun.

MAGNET MARVELS Modern Giants That Raise Tons of Metal at a Time. f LIFT BILLETS HOT OR COLD. A Single One of These Monsters With Invisible Magic Fingers Will Do the Work of Half a Hundred Men--The Magnet In Medicine and In Surgery, Those who have watched a toy mag- net lift up pins and needles and mar- veled not a little at the unseen power that causes the bits of metal to Jump night well be excused for standing aghast at the sight of a modern giant magnet picking up several tons of iron and steel from the scrap heap and con- veying it with ease and rapidity to the melting furnace beyond. So great has been the commercial de- velopment of the magnet that it can lift ve and a half tons. These giant magnets used in iron and steel mills can pick up hot as well as cold billets, and a single one of this character will displace half a hundred workmen. A farther improvement may be not- ed in the combination of skull cracker and magnet. The skull cracker is a huge pear shaped ball of iron suspend- ed by a chain to a hook and steel ropes. This skull cracker is dropped with great force on scrap metal to be broken up for remeltlng. It breaks the metal into conveniently small pieces and is lifted up and down by the mag- net until the scrap is reduced to prop- er size. Then the invisible fingers of the magnet gather up the small pieces and carry them to the melting furnace. The entire operation is acceLpllshed in one-hundredth of the time formerly required by manual labor. More recently magnets have been employed in the milling industry to pick out small particles of metal that frequently get into flour and cause ex- plosions through friction when they come in contact with the big rollers. Not a particle of metal can escape the powerfulmagnets suspended over the chute through which the grain passes. In mining and metallurgical work the magnet has become an indispensa- ble labor saving agent. The magnetic separation of ores has saved thousands of dollars to mining companies. When the rocks are crushed and pulverized powerful magnets gather up the in- finitesimal parts of metal released from their beds and convey them to the smelting furnace. Quantities of ore can thus be saved from old tailings that were formerly considered pure waste. Recently commercial magnets were employed for the novel purpose of rais- ing sunken treasures, k big cargo of nails was lost in twenty fathoms of water, and the loss seemed irreparable until some enterprising genius raised them easily and cheaply by means of a magnet suspended from a derrick by steel cables. In the most improved commercial magnets hollow steel castings are used, in which magnetized coils are placed. The latter are built up of alternate layers of copper and asbestos and in- sulated from the cast steel frames by thick sheets of mica. A magnet of this construction is proof against heat and cold and free from the danger of short circuiting. There is nothing com- bustible used in its manufacture, and it can gather up a ton of hot scraps of steel with comparative ease. But the i]fisible fingers of the mag- net can pick up the most delicate splinter of steel no larger than a sew- ing needle as easily as it lifts a huge iron or steel beam weighing a ton or two. The small magnets have there- fore found as great a field of useful- ness as the big ones. In all trades they are employed for handling pieces of metal too small for fingers to pick up easily. In a medical way they are used suc- cessfully for extracting iron or steel cinders from the eye and also for drawing out of the body needles and pieces of metal that have found lodg- ment there. A dressmaker who had inadvertemly swallowed a dozen nee- dles was operated upon in this way with entire success. For several days she was placed under a powerful mag- net until every needle had been drawn from her body. In a therapeutic way magnets have proved of value in destroying ulcerous and cancerous growths, and even blood diseases of some kinds have yielded to their curative effects. A man with the point of a dagger broken off in his body had it removed by a magnet. Another patient had been suffering from a painful ulcer on the chin fbr many years without finding relief. He was finally cured by treat- ment with a magnet, which drew from his chin a lot of steel filings that had caused all the trouble The filings had found lodgment in a cut in his face one day when working before a turn- ing lathe. No immediate trouble had followed, and the man had forgotten the incident until the magnet drew them out and gave the ulcer a chance to heal.--George E, Walsh in Chicago Record-Herald. A Pertinent Question. There are great men who cannot spell, and small people who object to them. "Spell 'cat,'" said the teacher o the boy at the tail end of the class. "K-a-t," replied the boy. "Silly." re- plied the teacher. "Can't you spell cat? .... Well," replied the sensible boy, "what does k-a-t spetl?"--Londou Chronicle.
