England, discovered J the art of silver plating. He was re- j pairing the handle of a knife in which both copper and silver were used. At- ! cldentally the two metal were fused ' together. Based upon this observation. ' be developed the new pnwess. Cpon a thick ln:ot of copper he bound by Iron wire a thinner Utsot of silver. The whole was then heated lu a revertieratory furnace until the K)ges ; of the silver lnsot were observed to : begin to melt. The two inirots were : then reinovey'rom the furnace, slowly . cooled and pickled, cleaned and rolled to the b sired thi'-kDc-.". Tin? result was a plate of 'JI -!" more or les thirty covered v. ith silver on one M'"e. Th!s was the tirst H:-!hM pl:it?. For fifty years f!lw liu the cor,) er was p!atcl n one vide only and the cut eiles hiweil the cupper. Later the process was so perfected that no copper W:is left exi-ed. All the sll verpiate of tin world w?n made by this process until e!wtn!'!.itin? was discovered made commercial. Popular Mechanics. Real U- of the Bee's Sting.
