  • Plot: Two days' travel from civilization our photographers came upon an old but vigorous Navajo brave seated under a tree and making bracelets of silver. For centuries and ages these Indians have done such work with the most primitive of tools. Their forge consists of a little pile of a peculiar clay fashioned so as to hold the coals. A hand bellows made from the body of a young lamb and of most primitive form blows the flames around the home-made crucible. All this is shown in the picture, and most vividly, too. The Indian throws a chunk of native silver into the crucible and then blows the fire until the metal is molten. With a pair of strangely wrought tongs he lifts the crucible and pours the metal into a little depression in a square stone. As soon as this "slug" is cold he takes it up and pounds it into shape on a crude anvil. Occasionally he lays the partially-wrought piece on the coals and anneals it until finally he has fashioned one of the picturesque and strange bracelets so well known as the treasured work of the Navajos.
