without the plough-share. Well, what does he say.'' He
says. No, he cannot. But the plough-share is made of
iron. AVill iron melt in the fire? Put the poker in and
try. Well, is it melted ? No, but it is redhot and
soft; it will bend. But I will tell you, Charles; iron will
melt in a very, very hot fire; when it has been in a great
while, then it will melt.
Come, let us go to the smith's shop. What is he doing?
He has a forge; he blows the fire with a great pair of
bellows to make the iron hot. Now it is hot. Now he
takes it out with the tongs, and puts it upon the anvil.
Now he beats it with a hammer. How hard he works!
The sparks fly about: pretty bright sparks! What is the
blacksmith making? He is making nails, and horse-shoes,
and a great many things.
Lesson 4.
Steel is made of iron. Steel is very bright and hard.
Knives and scissors are made of steel.
Lead is soft and very heavy. Here is a piece, lift it.
There is lead in the casement; and the spout is lead, and
the cistern is lead, and bullets are made of lead. Will
lead melt in the fire ? Try: throw a piece in. N^ow it
is all melted, and runs down among the ashes below tlie
grate. What a pretty bright colour it is of now!
Tin is white and soft, it is bright too. The dripping-
pan and the re-flect-or are all cover-ed with tin.
Quick-sil-ver is very bright, like silver; and it is very
heavy. See how it runs about! You cannot catch it. You
cannot pick it up. There is quick-sil-ver in the weather-
Gold, silver, copper, iron, lead, tin, quick-sil-ver;
one, two, three, four, five, six, seven metals. They
are all dug out of the ground.
