Changed to Steel in an Hour
David Simpson, a blacksmith employed in the Carbon Iron Works, Pittsburg, Penn., claims to have a process by which ore can be converted into refined iron in one hour. He says: “I know I have a good thing and am watching it carefully. I can put ore in that furnace, add a few chemicals and in a short time I can draw our good iron; put in some more chemicals and I can draw out good steel. Here is a razor blade of steel, made, forged, sharpened and brought to this city in two hours.”—Chicago Herald.
