How to Tan Leather?Description
of How the Work May be
Cheaply Done at
Abbeville Preis and Banner.
Ninoty Six, S. C, /fpril 22, 1894.
Enclosed you will Hud a bit of alom
tanncd leather. Tho process of pre
paring it is sometimes callod glove tan
ning, from tho fact that small skins are
tanned this way for glovo making.
Sumo persons, who have scon somo of
the leather propared by Mr. J. Rhodes,
who is living on my placo, have askod
mo for a description, in detail, of tno
way it is done. I havo thought it
might prOTO interesting if not profita
ble to the farmer readers of tho Press
and Bauuor, to learn of a bettor way
of disposing of their beef hides and
sheep and goat skins than selling them
at two cents and buying from the mer
chants their necessary supply of leather
at 40 or 50 ceuts per pound.
Another reason for sending this to
you for publication is that there was a
man in the town of Ninety-Six last
week trying to sell tho rights to uso
this or a vory similar process at $5
each. There is nothing new in it. It
is rather ancient for a patont. With
this preface 1 will givo in as fow words
as is consistent witlx boing understood
the dotalls of tho proooss oy which tho
leather was tanned from which tho
piece onclosed was cut. All a farmer
neods to muko a tanyard is a korosene
barrel sawod in two tubs. Locate the
yard under shelter, out of rain and
sunshine. Begin with tho skin as soon
OS taken from tho animal. It is more
easily worked, but If you start oh' with
a dry hide soak 111 water for about three
days or until thoroughly soft and plia
ble, remove all the bits'of flesh and fat
from it and put into llmo or strong
ashes and water sufficient to cover.
As soon as tho hair becomes loose In
about two days, romovo It all. I uso a
common farm boo to scrapo tho hair
oil* with, return the hido to tho ashes
or lime and soak it two to four days
longer to swoll tho hide, this loosens
up the texture so it will readily take
in the tanning substance. Next you
want to get rid of tho limo or caustic
potash loft in tho hido: to do this, soak
It in the other one-half barrel in clean
water, which keep up for four to six
days changing the wator every day, or
tie it to a weight and throw it In the
If you exneot to carry tho leather
you will do better to keep it out of the
sand of tho branch. Tho hido is now
ready for tho tanning vat which is tho
easiest and simplest part. Uso allum
and common salt, allum ono part, salt
two parte by woight.
For calf, sheep or goat skin, one
pound allum with two pounds of salt:
for tho hido of a beef weighing 50
pounds to tho quarter it will take 5
pounds allum with 10 pounds of salt:
spread t he hide out flesh side up, sprin

and salt on it, fold or roll it up with tho
allum or salt inside, plaee in the vat
with heavy weight on it, without wa

hide is not covered by fho solution com
ing out of tho hido and water till it
does, take it out every two days, fold it
a different way and return to the vat.
A small skin should remain in tan four
to six days, a hide from one week to
three weeks, according to size.
When the leather is taken out of
tan, comes the working part of the

elbow grease is essantial just here.
Begin as soon as it comes out dripping

it over the top of a stump for 15 or 20
minutes and repeat three or four times
a day until it is ready for use. Do you
ask what sort of oil? Don't use any
vegetable oil, castor, linseed, olive, nor
cotton seed. Beef-foot oil Is excellent,

Farmer, try this: you can with a box
of copper rivets and burrs make all
your plow and wagon harness at home
that will, with care, last as well as
store-bought ones made of loathcr at
40 or 50 cents per pound.
In dressing shoop skins with tho

Do not weight it or cover it with water,
