NEW YEAR RECEPTION
How Washington Pays Its Respects
to the Head of the Nation.
Thousands Annually Visit the White
House to Shake Hands With
Washington. Jan. 1. ---(Special Cor
respondence. 5 ---The jieople of Wash
ington, that is the thousands of clerks
and those holding higher official
positions under the government , begin
talking about the New Year's recep
tion to the president for fully a
month prior to the event. Washington
is, in a marked sense, a cosmopolitan
city, for the reason that the hulk of
its population is made up of citizens
of all foreign countries and from
every state in the union, aud when
they unite in any undertaking, the
affair is sure to assume gigantic pro
portions. Aud it is so that we find
this annual event of paying the na
tion's respects to i s chief executive.
Owing to the large increase iu the
popularity of extending to the presi-
dent a New Year's greeting, for the
1 ast five or six years, the time for
receiving the public has had la be
prolonged. The reception proper be
gins at 10 o'clock a. m., when the
cabinet officers, the army aud navy,
the G. A. R . the diplomatic corps and
all foreign representatives to this gov -
apjiear before the president
and receiving ladies in the or !er of a
prearranged programme, rhisteatur.
of the reception takes up practically
two hour's time. The general public
begins to arrive on the scene about
half-past nine o'clock and form in
line two abreast. This line extends
for blocks in either direc'ion along
Pennsylvania avenue with -tributaries
from side streets around the stale,
war and navy building. Here they
patiently stand for hours awaiting
the signal from the gate keeers.
As soon as the gates are opened, those
occupying positions near the head of
the columns, make a mad rush for
the east terrace. It does not take
long, however, for the ranks to close
up as solidly as they were during the
period, of exjiectaucy. aud the slow
process uece.-sary to 'ie observed iu
the prreentation and in introduction i
of each individual renders progress j
slow and irksoine. All the discom
forts that have lieen endured so quiet ly
up to this time are entirely -dissipated
when once the martyrs are usfrw.il iu
to the K.rte cocbere. The heVtrK,
fragrance arising from the banks of
cut flowers tha; ! eaut if y every portion
of the interior, the glare of myriads
of electric lights, the inspiring
strains ol music from the Marine
band and the charming picture of
leauty aud elegance, as presented by
, he ladieg in the
warms the heart and revives the sen-
to such a degree that all thoughts of
the late inconveniences and sufferings
are frignteued away. The soul feast -on

events. During la.-t year many and
extensive iniproements were made iu
and around the exti-utive mansion.
The whole situation as to iiurress and
egress has lieen so remodeled as to
facilitate the progress of the throngs.
In providing for the accommodation
of more jieople. those having the mat
ter in charge ap(iear not to have taken
the president into consideration so
far as handshaking goes. The president
had evidently overlooked this further
tax upon his already strenuous life.
Private receptions iu Washington
liegiu almost immediately after the
White house closes its doors to the
public. These popular affairs are full
of brilliancy, pretty women and loU
of pleasure, and it is uot until near
the hour of B midnight that the tired
hosts and hostesses are at lilierty to
call their homes their own. There
are huudi . .Is of them open to call
ers on these occasions aud the sin
cerity of the welcome extended makes
the day one of much rejoicing and its
recurrence ever to lie loug.il for.
Washington as a general rule, is con
sidered a diffident s.irt of place, and
an explanation for this alleged con
dition appears at intervals iu
press. There is a clannishness exist
ing among forty live ieoples. repre
senting as many different states, to
which the seeming ailment may lie
attributed. But this does not inter
fere iu the least with .lavs of general
good feeling, full of reciprocal felici

SIMPLEX TYPESETTING MACHINE.
The Mechanical Device Which Assembles the Type
From Which the JonrnaMHiner News is Printed.
A Machine Which is One of the Wonders of the Present Age as it Sets
and Distributes Type With Great Accuracy.
The Journal-Miner has been the re
cipient of many compliments during
the past couple of weeks, on its im
proved appearance, as well as on the
increased amount of reading matter
furnished to its subscribers, and it
is most gratifying to the management
of the paper that these improvements
are appreciated. While nothing has
lieen said about it in these columns,
the fact is that these improvements
J are due to the installation of new
moderu machinery, in the way of a

After a long and careful iuvestigation
of the whole subject of mechanical
typesetting, we have finally in
stalled the machine which is work
ing such a revolution in the old
methods of producing newspapers.
It is probable that on no labor sav-
matter is tested by the wards or cbau-
nels of the lower cylinder, until it
finds one exactly corresponding and
drops down into the lower magazine,
The lower cylinder is stationery and
at the bottom of each channel it
contains a lever which is connected
with a keyboard similar to that of a
typewriter. When a character on the
keyboard is pressed down the lever
releases the corresponding character
from the channel and deposits it on a
rapidly moving disc which carries it
around the machine and to a "packer"
which packs the letters into a line iu
their proper order in an aprifjht
position, or. to use a printer's phrase.

human intelligence, we feel like tak

A CUTTING SCRAPE.
Which Is Alleged to Have Occurred
iu Prescott When the Wounded
.Man Went to Phenix.
the following little story which had
its commencement in Prescott and
continued in Phenix, the last chapter
of which has not yet materialized:
There is a colored man lurkiug
around somewhere in this town who
will tie hunting up a doctor if he
wants to go thruogh life with two

repairs. It was a 'pretty td cut nut
the doctor cut into his arm and drew
the tendons together so that the two
middle fingers which were hauging
down were drawn up naturally again.
The doctor put some absorl.ent gauze
into the incision, dressed the wound
and told Harper to return the next
day. He did not return and the doc
tor hasnot seen him since. The sec
ond day he got uneasy and hunted
for his patient but could uot find
him. The doctor was uneasy for two
reasons. The first was that that gauze
would almost certainlv produce a .case
of hlood rMiirtnnincr an.t the nevt whs
that in that event a mighty fine case
of surgery would lie spoiled. Th
doctor came to town yesterdav and he
learned that Harper was here. He
told some other colored men to hunt
him up and tell him that he was not
a well man but that he was courting
the loss of the arm with which he
delivers his right hand jabs.

eluding an ode which was snug at the
