CURIOUS MATTER OF ATTRACTION
Useful in industry and the home, magnets are also very good for picking up people.
PICKING up pins with toy magnets is kid stuff to the Eriez Company of Erie, Pa. Designers of magnets for industry, Eriez at-tractors can pick up people—if they’re attached to something magnetized. Industrial magnets have other uses, too. Housewives, for example, use them to pluck tin cans from high shelves. Rolling varieties will pick up anything made of metal. The beauty of these magnets is that they won’t lose more than one per cent of their strength in a century of pulling—a real attraction.
