hides come from Buenos Ayres. They weigh

is nominal, but each hide takes unten nonn.l.

Oak bark, hemlock bark, and the powdered
leaves of sumac are the things that supply
tanning. The bark is coarsely ground and
tteejied iu fresh water to make ooze tor the
vats. A very late invention Is a mill for
grinding oak wood as well as bark into a sort
of coarse meal, which, It Is claimed, makes a
double quantity of the vary best ooze, at less
than half cost.
Ouce through the rats, the hides are
washed again, scraped anew on the flesh side,
curried with tanner' s oil, whose source is
those rod livers that are not fresh enough
for medicine; then steam dried, pressed be
twixt hot rollers, and sent to market the
"sides of sole leather" that everybody knows.
Tbs bulk of it is hemlock tanned. That
bark is cheaper and gives a harder finish,

Oak leather fetches almost a cent or two
more in the pound, and is invariably used for
tine footwear, aa well as whenever leather of
peculiar strength and toughness is requisite.
