THE SAN FRANCISCO MINT IS THE
LARGEST IN THE WORLD.
Where Thousands of Dollars Are Coined
Every Day How the Shininz Yellow
Metal Is Changed Into Currency Melt
ins and Stamping Silver Coins.
There are four United States mints, lo
cated respectively nt Philadelphia, Xew Or
leans, Carson City and San Francisco. On
the corner of Fifth and Missouri streets
stands a large gray stone building, suffi
ciently imposing as to attract immediate
attention, and if curiosity leads the visitor
up the long flight of broad stone steps
and into the reception hall, he will. find him.
self within the walls of the largest mint in
the world. This mint was established in
1S53, and the present building was erected
in 1859. A polite, well informed and cour
teous guide awaits to conduct the visitors
through the workrooms, where can be seen
the different processes through which bull
Ion must pass tiefore it can be used as
United States money. The furnace room '
Is the first one to which the visitor is con
ducted. The machinery is run by water
power, furnished by an artesian well in the
yards of the mint building.
The next room is the deposit room, or,
more properly speaking, the ingot room.
Here old gold, silver or jewelry is received,
of which any one can deposit to the value
of not less than $100 and have it melted
into bullion, assayed and the next day re
ceive in money of full value in gold coin
with 10 per ceut of copper alloy and no
charges made for coining. On the day of
our visit 500,000 in silver coin was being
melted over. Why? Xo one could or would
explain. It looked odd to s:-e the appar
ently perfectly good 30-cent pieces shoveled
into the small, redhot Imvls, where the
intense heat of the furnace soon reduced
the coins to a molten fire, which is stirred
by smnll paddles held by immense iron
pinchers in the hands of skilled workmen,
who practically "earn their hrcad by the
sweat of the brow." The small paddles, as
well as the bowls in which the metal is re
duced to liquid, are made of clay and plum
bago. The ingots of gold and silver lire 12
inches long, yt iuchrs wide and X inch
thick. The value of the gold ingot is$l,G00,
and the value of the silver ingot of the
same size is 55.
The next process through which the met
al passes is that of rolling into long, thin
strips. This is Hone by heavy rollers under
a pressure of 250 tons. It takes 13 times to
roll gold and 17 times to roll silver. The
gold strips are now put into long copper
tubes, wuicu are then placed in a furnace
until they are redhot, thence thrown into a
vat of water, which process tempers the
metal. Knch of these long copper tubes is
bandied by two workmen and will hold
fcJU.tHH) in gold or $2,500 in silver. When the
gold strips are removed from the tubes, the
gold is waxed, and the silver strips are
grense.1. This is done to prevent alinision.
The metal is now ready for cutting into
pieces, t he size according to the denomina
tion of the money to be made. The work
men shove the long gold strips into the cut
ting machine, which handles Uie precious
metal as it would pasteboard, and indeed
it is quite soft, as what is left of the strips
isdo;ili!ed up by the hands of the workman
and Uirowu into a box t;i be s: nt back t o
the ingot room. One dollar ia silver and
$20 in gold are cut o;;t at ti e rate of 1S5
pieces per minute, the smaller at the rate
of 2S5 pieces per minute. The round pieces
of gold and silver are now passed to the
cleaning room, where they are washed free
from the wax and grease
Peeping into the door of the cleaning
room, which visitors are nut idlnwed to
enter, could be i-ecu a Uix of unstamped
$20 gold pieces. The box cutit'iitied f 100,0110
in gold. The unstamped coins, now bright
and shimmering, are ta n to liu-ailjusting
room where the ladies work They are
here adjusted to the exact weight of the
coin to be made. Should a coin prove to
be too heavy it is filed off: il "too light it
goes back to tie melted over The milling
process puts the metal in blank form for
stamping, liut first it must lie freed from
oxidation, which is done by whitening.
The ronnd coins are now ready for the
stamping which makes the metal money.
There are five stamping machines, and the
dies of these can be changed.
One dollar ia silver and ?20 in gold are
struck off by the same machine at the rate
of 5,000 per hour. The capacity of the ma
chines is much larger than the supply of
gold. But if all the machines could be
kept working in gold they could stamp
$450,000 in one hour, or $3,150,000 in seven
hours, or $945,000,000 in 300 working days.
To look at the large engine of 150 horse
power that controls the machinery used in
the mint building one would scarce imagine
it had been used for 19 years, as it appears
as bright and glittering in its polished
metal plates as if it were new.
In this great building where $40,000,000 of
treasure is stored away, many seemingly
small economies are practiced, yet the re
sults are quite astonishing and more than
repay the labor. The floors of the work
rooms are covered with perforated iron
flooring in small sections. Every night
these sections are removed and the floor
swept. The sweepings are then worked
over with acid, and the yield in gold and
6ilver amounts to $0,000 per annum. Once
a year every truck about the building is
burned, irrespective of its condition, and
also the clothing worn in some of the work
rooms, that not a particle of the precious
metals may be lost. Once in four years the
carpets of the adjusting room are burned.
The last burning enriched the United
States coffers to the extent of $3,200.
Leaving the stamping room the visitor
finds himself in a long stone corridor facing
two vaults, whose heavy iron doors conceal
the treasures of $10,000,000 and in their
mighty strength of steel and iron seem to
mock as childish play the official papers
eealed with red wax and marking them as
belonging to the United States government.
The guide now leads the way up stairs to
the main hall, where the visitor can, if so
disposed, pass a pleasant and instructive
half hour viewing the collection of rare old
coins on exhibition in the reception room.
San Francisco Cor. Omaha Bee. "
And She Never Smiled.
A middle aged man who has made enough
money to take his wife to France a dozen
times and not even missjthe change, but
who has never known a word of French
until the last few months, was calling at
a neighbor's not many evenings since. A
girl who took high honors in her French at
school some years ago happenedto be sit
ting near him, and the attention of both
was attracted by a handsome dog outside
on the pavement.
"Ung shiang," the gentleman practiced
softly to himself. Then, turning to the
young lady, "Shiang," he repeated benign
ly; "that is the French word for dog."
The maiden did not smile; her own dear
fathegr had been worried, into studying
French of late, and she knew how it was.
flic Japanese Versus tne Western Artist.
The greater part of our "decoration" is
carried out just tl.j contrary way to that
of the Japanese Our artists accept as a
momentary curse the fact that to live they
may Lave to draw patterns, or work in
glass, or paii.t. . : :iu.del subsidiary orna
mei:tati'JU l iuy kn'; forward to theglo
ric:;s time ivher. they may wreak their
lofly souls ;i; the dignity cf paint mixed
with the sacred linseed oil. or in the statue
done iu bronze or carved in marble by other
hands than theirs And y t if their'nature
be not too :'ai removed from ours the
habit of doing less than their best, the
habit of iloinjj poorly, the scorn of any
thing but the fine clothes of a fine ma
terial, will never lie got over, and through
out this little cheapness of soul, this essen
tial snobbishness, will be felt to puzzle and
disconcert those who wish to admire.
That is to say that they too often do not
look to the end, but to the means, while to
the artist the means are a mere path. As
with the Greeks their work will live, even
if its very physical existence is obliterated,
because it is built in the mind in the eter
nity of thought. So Greek art existed and
has lived and lives the most flourishing
and richest that we know of, with less to
represent it than we turn out daily So it
lived when it had uo longer anything of its
own body to represent it; in everything
that was done in every country which kept
Its lessons, and lives still without examples
to refer to even into the very painting of
today. It is the principle of the proper
place of means that makes the little piece
of Japanese metal work for instance, the
swordguard or knife handle an epitome
of certainly a greater work of art than any
modern cathedral And as certainly we
shall never even produce good ordinary or
namental work until we feel the truth that
I have lamely indicated. John La Farge

Castoria Is the best remedy for children of

far distant when mothers will consider the real
interest of their Children, and use Castoria in
stead of the variou8quack nostrums which are
destroying their loved ones, by forcing opium,
morphine, soothing syrup and other hurtful
agents down their throats, thereby sending
them to premature graves.1
