they have already done. At their
last meeting they contracted with
the Howard Aviation Company of
Chicago, for the appearance here
of Walter Bullock, known as the
World's Greatest and Most Daring

flights and no doubt will prove a
wonderful attraction as people in

strips are then passed through a ma
chine. which cuts them into proper size
for the presses, the strips first having
been treated with a kind of tallow to
prevent their being scratched in their
passuge through the cutters.
The silver pieces are then put Into
the feeder of the printing presses and
are fed to the die by automatic ma
chinery at the rate of 100 per minute,
48.000 dimes being turned out in a
regular working day of eight hours.
As the smooth pieces are pressed be
tween the ponderous printing dies they
receive the lettered and figured im

of a paper pressed upon a form of
type. At the same time the piece is
expanded In a slight degree, and the
small corrugations are cut Into Its rim.
The machine drops the completed
coin Into a receiver, and it is ready
for the counter's hands. The instru

complicated machine by any means, as
one might suppose. It is a simple cop

running across Its surface at a dis
tance apart the exact width of a dime.
From the receiver the money Is
dumped on the board or tray, and as
It Is shaken rapidly by the counter
the pieces settle down Into the spaces
between the ridges. All these spaces
being filled, the surplus coin Is brush
ed back Into the receiver, and the
counter has exactly 1,250 silver dimes,
or $12o, on his tray, which number Is
required to fill the spaces. Tho tray
is then emptied Into boxes, and the
