deeired quantity of clay, and after this
forced through dies under heavy pres
sure. These dies are cut from emeralds
and sapphires. The lead as It comes
through the dies resembles long- strings
of black spaghetti. It is then placed
in furnaces and baked to a proper de
gree, after -which It is cut into lead
Cedar the Best 'Wood.
The wood from -which lead pencils
are made is mostly Virginia cedar, al
though the heavy demand upon this
"wood has made it necessary to resort
in the cheaper pencils, to certain kinds
of pine. The wood is first sa-wcd into
slats, a quarter of an inch thick by
two and a half inches -wide by seven
inches long. These slats are then pass
ed through a grooving machine, -which
cuts a groove for every half inch. The
prepared leads are next placed in these
grooves, and another grooved slat
glued over it. The resultant block is
then passed through another machine
-which cuts It into five half-Inch
squares, seven inches long. Another
process makes the pencil round or such
other shape as may be desired. After
this it Is fed through a mechanical
varnishing machine and then placed
away to dry. The more valuable kinds
pencils are varnished by hand, pol
I ished, and stamped with gold letter
About nine-tenths of . the pencils
manufactured in the United States are
provided -with rubber tips. Those with
out metal caps are put into the pencil
by a machine, from which the inventor
Is said to have made $100,000. The
erasers are made of a good quality of
rubber, which is thoroughly masticat
ed by a machine, cured, mixed with
sulphur and ottier materials to improve
the (erasing qualities, and then mould
ed into shape.
It is said that few lines of station
ery yield a greater profit to the dealer
than lead pencils. In the departments
J at "Washington one of the principal ef
j forts at economy is the saving of lead
I pencils. So great was the tendency of
! the clerks to carry pencils away and j
I supply their families with them at gov- j
J eminent' expense that an official in- j
j terdict to the practice became necessa- j
I ry. The government" ordered that pen- !
I cils should be used only in the offices,
! and even then should be used down to
the lowest possible size. This economy
has resulted in the saving of thousands
of dollars in Uncle Sam's annual pen

nPHE worlds most wonderful story is the record of
its inventions. They have enabled man to multi
ply his power, subtract from his limitations, and
add to his well being.
The octogenarian of to-day has witnessed
more human progress than all the other gen
erations since Adam. When Andrew Jackson
won his great victory xat New Orleans, there
was no better method of carrying the news
to Washington than was in-use in the days
of Xerxes and Darius.
The civilized nations of the earth have
issued three million patents, and of this
number approximately one million are to
be found in the filesof the United States
