Now a d?>ft workman lakes th?' horn
rohheil of its tip and saws it in two

position of the bone as it is fed up to
the taw. so that it will come out as
nearly as possible in two equal parts.
Hut the horn is loo stiff and hard in

anything that looks like a comb.
Just how or when it was no one
knows now, but somebody more
thoughtful than his fellows found out
a long time ngo that boiling will soft
en even this seemingly Inflexible sub
stance. This, therefore, is the next
process in the art of comb-making.
Il does not take long for the curves
all lo straighten out.
A rapid process of pressing sends
the pieces out .in flat, triangular
shape. A bath in cold water hardens
them once more, and they are. ready
for the workman standing next to the
tip saw. Here the horns are cut into
strips of .various lengths according lb
their size. Every hit is sawed so far

In thu beginning of horn comb
making it was not so essential thal
waste should he avoided as it is to
day. Not eo many combs? were re
quired as at present, and the horns
were not worth as much us they are
today. And for these reasons the
teeth of combs were cut by thin saws
which made a slit of the desired
depth down toward the back of the
comb. One such saw was at first
used, then gangs of twos working
side by side, doing the work more
This was a costly process, how
ever, and the day came when a ma
chine was invented which could cut
the teeth down through the plate of
horn. Just as a die would chop out a
tlisk of metal. This sawed every bit
of the horn and lessened the expense
for raw material very greatly.
Hut the comb would not be very
comfortable to use nt this point in
the process of manufacture, neither
would lt be beautiful enough to ap
pear in places where combs may be
called upon to do service. To give
it more of beauty and bring lt to the
smoothness- required, the comb ie
now put through an operation of pol
ishing which tukes every hit of the
rough exterior away, leaving it a very
pretty as well as highly necessary
article of household furniture. In
this process of polishing the humble
corn husk and the smooth-faced cha
mois are brought into play. It may
seem strange that the husk of corn
sould be worth anything as polish

really was a bright Idea to put this
quality of the corn husk to use in
making combs, and, after the chamois
skin and theyrough corn leaves have
done their work, horn combs have a
beauty which makes them preferable
to many people, even to the exclus
