no much the letter. The same di'lkul
tles confront the manufacturer by ma
chinery and are met in the same way.
The bark, after bavin; been wet and
thi n allowed to remain for a time iu

the stripping machines, which relui-e
It t. Nlabs of a size proportionate to
the corks to 1 made. These machines
are merely small iron tables, thrj'.'.Ii
which jippear very thiu steel di-U-,
like circular saws, except that they
have no tii-th. They are reaily keen
dj;ed nK-cl knives, us thin as j.ajKr
and running at a hili rate of speed,
but so si.ivH,thIy that they seem to the
spectator t Ik' standing still.
The little slabs or strips of cork K
next to the bloekers." The cutters
here are cylindrical steel punches, or
tulies, with razor c:'is. They are ar

They ;;rc. of course, perfei-tly cylindrical-thai

that form they are preferred by bot

tlicir shape 'iiables them the better to
resist the pressni-o of the restrained
But for the um of druspists, who are
the ureal users of corks and need the
very tiuest. a taperiutf stopper is .ie
fcrreil. and this necessitates another
peration. the tapering, lua.hiues are
ru:i mostly by yoe.tiir women. Kach
machine consists of a little lathe,
which centers the cylindrical cork au
tomatically and then brings it into con
tact with the iilge of the cutting knife,
which. I.ke the cutter of the slicing
machine, is a very thin steel disk. As
the cork touches this knife a thin
shaving rises and curls away, like as a
puff of smoke.
One who knows nothing of the ma
chinery could see no reason, for it. but
during the second that the cork ha
been, iu contact with the apparently
motionless disk some dozen yards of
flying, razor edgi-d sb-el have 1m-cu
at work, ai d the cork is now n perfect

surface and an even and vegular taper.
