stated that contracts had been made
for about $2u,uuu worth of the latest
improved machinery; that new build

during the ensuing fiscal year, thus
adding to tne facilities for getting

On the first floor Is an up-to date

On three of these presses is to be seen
the new cross automatic continuous
paper feeder. The capacity of the cyl
inder prtses is from 12,uu0 to 15,U00

In the second building, which is two

day more generally observed. As to
whether & program will be rendered
both by day and night has not been de
cided upon. Of course it is the cus
tom for schools to have their special
exercises, , but the chapels of the
schools are, never large enough to ac
commodate citizens on special occa
sions. The churches selected for the
citizens' program are not sufficiently
large to accommodate more than the
regular membership. In many cities
