MEL 1905-A

Miser's Dream

In this picture is seen the interior of a metallurgist's labratory in which he is conducting experiments in order to produce gold from basr metals. The cauldron is seen in a large open fireplace and into which he puts various chemicals. Great clouds of smoke ascend and through them a gigantic golden sovereign is seen. The coin eventually disolves into a representation of a handsome female, who offers to the alchemist a bag of gold. Reaching forth to grasp it, the woman disappears and the old man realizes that he had a dream.
