An Electric Retouching Pencil.
A device designed for tbe service of ph -tographers
is an electric retouching pencil.
A miniature motor is mounted on the e id
of the pencil and gives to tbe pencil po'nt
which is attached to the armature shaft
and not to the holder tube a very rapid
motion. The pencil is suspended by a
spring in the photographer's cabinet, with
in easy reach of the negative. The soring
relieving the operator from the weight of
tne apparatus, it is only necessary for him
to apply it to the proper point on the nega

own work. Such an arrangement i also
expected to become applicable to dentists

Obliterated Inscription on Coin.
In answer to an inquiry as to how totally
obliterated inscriptions on coins can be
made legible, a collector suggests tbe idon

tbe discovery of genuine coins when silver
is called in. The coin is placed on re 1 hot
iron, an ordinary poker being often used
for the purpose. The parts where th let

at a different rate from the surroui ding
parts, so that the letters exhibit their
shape and become legible in consequence
