USES FOR OLD PAPERS.
Some Is Made Over-Utilized By
The Different Trades.
"'New uses for old paper are being
found almost daily by the different
trades and by people who have a lit
tle ingenious turn of mind," said a
local junk dealer this morning. "You
don't see much waste paper thrown
away nowadays, and when you con
sider the great amount that is daily
accumulating it seems remarkable.
The newspapers are reeling off tons
of papers every day. All this great
quantity of paper must me destroyed
or used. There are eager scavengers
of the city after every stray paper and
bundle of wrapping paper. If it
werc not so the street cleaning de
partment would have to organize a
special corps o: men just to collect
-newspapers and burn them.
-Most of the newspapers are gath
Cred up and converted into market
able paper again and some go in with
the rags to make various kinds of
commercial material: but outside of
these two lines of industry the paper
is made into differrnt useful articles
of a wonderful nature. The news
papers are made of the spruce pulp,
and by a steaming process they can
be reconcerted ointo a similar pulp
again. This puln is not so good in
-the first instance, and no one has yet
found i way to make it possible to
use it over again for newspaper t
work. However, it is chewed and t
steamed up and then used for many
other purposes. Wood pulp novel
ties, lead pencil holders, paper
weights and ash receivers are mann- e
iactured from this waste paper.
-"'Of course there are experimental s
workers in waste paper and some of c
-them are working on problems which
appear very easy of solution,, but
-which in reality are most difficulty.
For instance. what seems easier than e
-to use the paper over again for print- t
ng? Why not boil and steam youra
waste paper and roll it through ma
chinery into new sheets for the daily
presses? Nothing appears at first
sight easier, but there is nothing that a
seems to give back to the paper the
life which the process of printing
takes from it. It is dead paper. It
lacks vitality strength. finish and it
is mixed with inks and chemicals. If
any man can rejuvenate the paper and
m-ake it fit for the presses over and
over again, he will make a fortune
and revolutionize the printing busi- i
iiess. What a boon it would be to
the newspapier to run its waste
paper back again and buy its old a
