Storyline

This entry follows the manufacture of shotgun shells through the various processes, and then shows the use of the shells by championship skeet-shooters, one of whom just happens to be Grad Sears, the General Sales Manager and President of Vitagraph, Inc. The second segment shows the creation of artificial flowers from pulp, and the final subject deals with the processing of gold leaf, from gold ingots beaten until they are as thin as tissue.
