For the benefit of "Interested
Reader," we quote the following from
Encyclopedia Britannica, in regard to
A perfectly flat and horizontal slab
of stone, bedded in a heavy, Iron
bound wooden frame, with a gutter
running around the outer edge, Is nec
essary. On the surface of this table,
which must be perfectly smooth and
level, is spread a sheet of tin-foil,
somewhat larger than the glass to be
derated upon, and after all folds and
creases have been completely removed
by means of stroking and beating with
a covered wooden rubber, the process
of "quickening" the foil is commenced.
A small quantity of mercury is rubbed
lightly and quickly over the whole
surface, and tho scum of dust, impure
tin and mercury is taken off. Mercury
is 'then poured upon tho quickened
foil until there is a body of it suffic
ient to float the glass to be silvered
(abdtft one-quarter of an inch deep),
and the edge at one of the sides hav
ing 'been cleared of the scum peculiar
f n.ir. the class (scrupulously
'cleaned simultaneously with the above
operations) is slid from that side over
the surface or me muruuij,
aro placed over tho surface until tho
greater part of tho amalgamated mor
cury is pressed out, tho tablo ia thon
tilted diagonally by mcaiiB of dumb
screws, and all superfluous mercury
finds its way to tho guttor. Tho glass
Is loft twenty-four hours under
woights; It is then turned over, sil
vered side up, and removed to a
drainer with Inclining sholvos, whero
by slow degrees, as It hardens and
dries, it la brought to a vertical posi
tion, which In tho caso of largo sheets
may not bo arrived at in less than a
month. This process yields excellent
results, producing a brilliant silvor
whlto metallic luster which is only
subject to alteration by exposure to
high temperature, or by contact with
damp surfaces. The morcurial vapora
to which the workmen aro exposed
give rise to nitet distressing and fatal
Thero are many patterns in drawn
work .which can bo copied in crochet,
and tho greater durability of the lat
ter renders this now work of great
uso In trimming household linen, such
as sheets, table-cloths, sideboard
scarfs, towels, etc. Ordinary crochet'
cotton is used in this work, and in sizo
and color must corrcsponi with tho
linen to bo decorated with it. After
tho crochet is.completed, an edge of
double-crochet sliould bo worked
around tho pattern to afford a founda
tion for tho button-holing with which
it is secured to the linen. After the
button-holing is completed, the linen
is cut away from under the crochet.
Before mounting tho crochet, draw
out a thread of tho linen for both
edges of the pattern as a guide in
sewing, in mounting intricate pat
terns, it may be well to stretch the
linen In a frame and tack the crochet
in place beforo button-holing. Some
times a line of feather-stitch along
tho edge of the crochet will be found
In making up small pieces like doil
eys, bands for shirt-waists, collars and
cmfs, etc., bias tape will be found an
excellent substitute for picco linen, as
it saves the trouble of cutting bands
of material and the edges of the tape
and crochet may be oversewn together
instead of button-holed. As tape
comes in different widths, much var
iation may be made in effect by mak
ing the same pattern of crochet with
narrow bands for one article and
wider strips for another. When the
crochet, has been mounted, it should
either be damped and pinned out on a
linen-covered board and left till dry,
or it may be pressed directly with a
hot Iron. The work sliould be care
fully pulled out and laid between two
damp cloths before being ironed.
