the trouble is that the average sentence
of the convicted safe burglar haa not ex

good behavior ' usually meant release In

the yegg renews his old vocation.

HOW STEEL PENS' ARE MADE
Mick Skill aaa a Lot of Troable la.
volved la Prod acl ear a v
Pens are made of good ateel which Is
rich In carbon. It la Imported In the form
of sheeJa nineteen Inchea aide and five feet
long. These are cut into strips wide enough
to cut two pens whose points Interlap.
In a lecture describing the proceas, an
expert named Hawkes says that the steel
la annealed to a light cherry red for several
hours, then gradually cooled, when It Is
soft enough to bend easily.
The acals la removed by pickling the
ateel In a bath of diluted acid. It then
goea through the rolling mill, the number
of tlmea depending upon the thlnneaa de
sired. The next atep Is to the cutting room,
where pen blanks sre cut by machines.
On one aide of each blank la a amall dent,
called the bit, which la used as a guide In
passing the blanks through succeeding op
erations. The pena are pierced by machinery,
aome requiring but one piercing, others
two or three, the latter being more ex
pensive. Item the piercing machine tha
pens go to the muffle room, where the
blanks are annealed, ;
Fifty or sixty gross of them ar placed
In each Iron pot and heated and oooled
Just m waa ths sUlp ot steel. .Tha aaa to
then stamped on the blanks and the pen Is
ready to be formed. 8ome pens have
to be crushed, by which procesa a little
wing of ateel la bent under them.
If tha pen Is still soft it la necessary
to take It to the muffle room and again
htat It to a light cherry red and chili It
suddenly. This procesa renders the pens
quite brittle, so much so, Indeed, that they
can be readily crumbled between the
Angers. Later on this hardness la drawn
out by heating the steel gradually. As the
temperature rises It becomes more and
more tough, until at about 678 cLegreea It
has the resiliency of a spring.
By thla time the pen haa become coated
with an oxide, which la removed by scour
ing or by a shaking process, by which the
roughness Is gradually rubbed off.
The next operation Is grinding, aome
pens being ground twice, others three
times. In some caaea by hand and In ether e
by automatlo machinery.
The pen next peases to the slitting room.
This operation is a very delicate one, ss
the pen la now hard and brittle and the
alit must be cut cleanly through the hard
ateel without damaging It In any way.
After slitting the pena go to the round
ing room, where they are made perfectly
round and smooth, so that no matter at
what angle the pen ia held the paper will
be in a tangent to its surface and there
will be no possibility of sticking or scratch
ing. livery pea to new examined, by an axport.
ao that the faulty pans which have accumu.
lated may be thrown out, Thla U tha
third examination. v
The pena jiow go back to tha room In
which the oxide waa removed ' to be pol
lened by the shaking procesa. If they are
to be colored they are placed in, a temper
ing cylinder and heated to the desired color.
The Bra heat brlnga thorn to a light
straw color, a dark yllow, a brown, a
purple and then a blue shads being obtained
by Increasing the heat. IT the pen la to be
left whit, ft ia, of course, not reheated.
In order to preserve the pen and prevent
It from rusting, a coat of lacquer Is put on
by means of machines. If the pen Is to be
plsted with copper or bronzo, sliver or
sold, it goes to the plating- room befor
th lacquering operation Is begun. PlaUd
pens ar now very popular and they can b
plated in almost Iny tuetal desiied.
The pens ar now ready to go to th
boxing room, where they are counted by
ascertaining th weight. It will be found
impossible to put a gross of pena In. the
bei Intended for them unless they ar told
In order to do thla quickly and easily
they are put In a half cylinder and shakari.
This quickly places them la a parallel poal
tlon. and by a Very quick move they are
dumped into the boxes, whldi are then
ready to be labelled and packed. PblladeU
