How Dimes Ara Made.
Tbe process of dime making is an interest-

run into two-pound bars. These in turn are
run through immense rollers and flattened
out to the thickness of tbe coin. These silver
strips are tbeu pasted through a machine
wiiii-h cuts tliem into round discs of the ex
act dimensions of the coin, ready for tbe
presses, the strips first having been treated
with a kind of tttllow to prevent their being
sci nulie.1 in their passage through the cut

feeder of tbe stamping presses, anil are fed
to tbe die by automatic machinery at tbe
rate of 1U0 per minute 4M.0UO being turned
out iu regulur working days of twilve hours.
As the Miiinitli blanks are pressed between
the ponderous printing dies they receive the
lettered and figured impression in a manner
similar to that of paper pressed upon a form
of type; at the same time tbe piece is ex
tended iu a slight degree, by which tbe mill
ing is formed on its rim. Tbe machine drops
the completed com into a receiver, and it is
ready for she counter s hands. The instru
ment used by the counter is not a complicated
machine byaur means, as one might suppose.
It is a simple copper colored tray, having
raised edges running across tbe surface at a
le-taiu-e about the exact width of a dinia
From tbe receiver tbe money is dumped on
t lie board or tray, and as it is shaken rapidly
by the counter tbe pieces settle down into the
spui between tbe ridges. All tbese spaces
bumg tilled, tbe surplus com is brushed back
into the receiver, ami tbe counter has exactly

number it requires to fill tbe spaces. Tbe

How a Toad Removes His Skin.
It is safe to say but few people have ever
lu fortunate enough to catch a toad in the
act of changing bis skin.
A man who professes to have been an in
terested eye witness to such a transaction de
scribe the novel operation as follows: I ob
served bun pressing bis elbows against bis
sides and rubbing downwards. His move
ini iits were so singular that I resolved to find
out, if possible, what ha was up to. After a
few smart rubs bis skin began to burst open
along bis back, "rtow," said I, "old fellow,
you have done it, but be appeared to be un
concerned, aud kept ou rubbing uutd be bad
win ked his skin into folds on bis sides and
bius; then, graspiug one hind leg with b
fure paws, he pulled tbe skin from tbe leg
slick as a mau would remove a pair of pants;
then stripped the other bind leg iu the same
He next took the cast-off portion of bis
cuticle and pulled it forward between bis
forelegs until he could catch it in his mouth,
whereupon ha forthwith began to swallow
it; then, by raising and lowering bis bead,
swallowing as tbe head beut forward each
time, he stripvd off tbe skin underneath
until it came to bia forelegs. At this stage
of the curious proceedings he ftraaped one of
the forelegs with tbe opposite paw, and by
much pulling stripped oil the skin ; changing
hands, he stripped the other, and by a slight
motion ot tbe bend, all the time swallowing,
he drew it from tbe neck and swallowed the
whole. Tbe entire operation occupied but a
few minutes of time. St. Louis IlepubUc

a bear at home among bis sisters, and dis
courteous to bis mother, is just tbe man to
avoid when you come to the great questiou
