(93tfn) Frank Flalg of Lone Rock is about the only village blacksmith left In the area. Flalg, who will be 74 years old Friday, has owned and operated a blacksmith shop in Lone Rock since Oct. 13, 1916. He has followed the blacksmith art for 62 years since he began the work when he was 12. Blacksmithlng Is a dying art and has changed drastically since, he began. Fifty years ago his, principal work was shoeing nor-" ;::se's.,and.,';w&|klhg on wagons and. plows. The last horse he shod' was in 1950. He still uses two coal-fired forges, but forge coal is harder to find than it was. Fairmont now is the closest place where it is handled. It is a special coal, with sulphur and slate removed. The forges still glow now and then, but they no longer burn full- blast all day. The handoperated bellows formerly used to bring the fire to intense heat has given way to an electric blower. Welding is now done with an acetylene welder. Most of the blacksmithing work now done by Flaig and his employee, Bernard Pettit, consists of repairs to farm machinery. The Flalg shop Is filled with iron bars, scrap metal, a wide variety of tongs and other interesting tools, While much of it looks useles)? -to ; Uie ; a,wage visitor^'lie I&ems"to have ft all in his mind and easily lays his hand on a certain piece that lends itself to a demonstration of the art of pounding and shaping metal. Asker< whether he had thought about retiring now that another birthday is com.'.ng up, he says, "Well, I'm thinking about it." He adds, however, that he has no such plans right now. A. A.
