How the Mexicans Tan.
Inasmuch as the tanning of leather by
the canaigre plant is becoming such an
important industry it will be interesting
and instructive to know how the Mexi
cano, the disooverers of the plant, utilize
it. ' '
In order to extract the virtues of can
aigre for tanning, tho nearer it can be
reduced to a pulp the better. The best
cheap plan to accomplish this, if tho
root can be obtained fresh, before it has
time to dry, as to run it through a com- (j QJJ) SILVERSMITH.

may be spread out and dried and stored
for future use. If the root if allowed to
dry first, then something stronger must
be used, as for instance, the old-fashioned
hark mill, or a patent grinder.
The Mexicans use two fiat rocks for - the
purpose, literally pounding it into pulp.
In order to make the "liquor," where
the root is plentiful, the Mexicans mere-
leech the pulp something after the
manner of the old-fashioned leech for
leeching lye from wood ashes. Iiv
others, such waste of the precious root is
considered sacrilege, and care is taken
to extract all of its strength possible by
heating, which must be dono in a cop
per or galvanized caldron, otherwise the
"liquor" will turn your leather a bluish
collor by oxedizing the iron in an iron
vessel. Success has been obtained. by

After the "liquor" is made many havej
failed to produce first class leather
through not taking into account the
wonderful strength of the canaigre, and
putting their hides into a solution alto

"burning" the leather. "Feeding" the
hide, or in common English transferring
the hide at the proper time from a weak
to a stronger solution, ran only lie
