IULLUU HLAULS NOW HELD AS MORES . Very Few of Famous Spanish 1 Swords In Existence—How They Were Made t .? ' ■v' The collector of ancient arms who possesses among hW treasures an old Spanish blade made in Toledo, may indeed consider himself fortunate for there are not many of these famous blades in existence at this late day. The celebrity of Toledo blades has excited the curiosity of many yho wished to ascertain the cause of their great excellence and renown. Some supposed the sword manufacturers of Toledo possessed a secret Cor tempering their arms; it was not so, | however; their only secret being the waters ot the Tagus and the fine white sand on its banks. This sand wai used for cooling the steel. When the steel was rod hot, and began to j give forth sparks, it was uncovered , a little and sprinkled with sand, and sent on to the forgers. s As soon as the blade was ready it was tempered ( tn the following manner; a line of . fire was made and the blade placed . in it in buch a manner that only , four-fifths of its length should touch the fire. As soon as the blade was • red hot it was dropped perpendicu- < latly into a bucket of Tagus water. , When cpld, if it was found to be - bent, a small portion of sand was < poured on the yoke, the blade was ’ placed upon it and beaten until properly straightened. After this the fifth part of the blade was fired, and when red-hot was seized with tongs and rubbed with suet, which soon began to melt. > After this the blade was sent to the grinding stones, and finished by being polished by wooden wheels with emery powder. Charles, the Third, a year after he became King of Spain, re-estab lished officially the .manufactory of arms of Toledo. He placed it-in a building near the Mirado Alto, and the works began in 17C1. The king soon found the building too small for the purpose and ordered his ar chitect, Sabatini, to build the pres ent one, outsidd the town near the river Tagus, which was finished in 178 S and from this time has been under the superintendence ot the Royal Artillery. Not a single sword-maker existed in 1760 of any note who was com petent to be placed at the head of the works, *and it was found neces sary to bring a proper person from Valencia. Palomares who was present, says: “As soon as the building-was ready and disposed for working Luis Cal isto, a famous sword maker began to work. Calisto was a native of Valencia, and more than seventy years of age when he was ap pointed. Other artists were chosen at the' same time by the Director. In the short space of time in which that chief master armorer lived, be made most excellent weapons; he was most skillful and was probably -imitated by his successor. THE CONNOISSEUR.

Adriance, finan cier and former chemistry instruc tor at Williams College. Mr. Adriance ‘f brothers, Harry Benson Adriance and Vanderpoel Adriance, of Williamstown, Mass., who petitioned for the inquiry, said their brother is incompetent John 8. Adriance, who is sixty three years old, was committed Craig House, at Beacon, N. Y., on June 16, by Justice Taylor, of the Supreme Court, in Pough keepsie. Mr. Adriance was married in 1810 to Mrs. Mathilda R. Adriance. They separated in 1911, and Mr. Adriance created a 1100,000 trust fund in 1912 to guarantee the pay ment of |4,600 a year to her un der a separation agreement. Mrs. Adriance ?ued last March to have this agreement annulled, declaring that |4,600 a year was not sufficient for her, and not in keeping with het husband’s for tune, which, she said, had in- creased since the agreement was signed. She charged that her hus- band had forced her to sign the agreement. At the time, Mrs. Adriance was unable to learn where her husband was, and she bad to obtain a Su preme Court order to serve him by publication. It was said at the time at his Williamstown residence that he was ill in New York, and was not to be disturbed.
