OUR TYPESETTING MACHINE
The Herald has installed during the
past week a new Simplex typesetting
machine, manufactured by the Uni
type Co., of New York.
The new machine is a marvel of
mechanical construction, and the trial
we have already given it proves that
it will meet all all the claims made
by its manufacturers, and that it will
fill a pre sing need in the equipment
of this office.
The new machine was purchased
that Pullman might have a printing
office equivalent to every demand
that might bo made upon it, and we
believe that the Herald has today the
best equipped country office in the
state of Washingtonh, leading by far
any other printery inWhitman county.
The installation of this machine
will enable us to give greater atten
tion both to the newspaper and job
printing, and as soon as we are suffi
ciently acquainted with our new ac
quisition, the paper will be enlarged
and improved. By solving the com
position problem, we are enabled to
have workmen free at all times to
work on that little job of printing of
yours, and to do it with the greatest
dispatch and expediency. And to the
people of Pullman, whose liberal and
appreciated patronage has made the
continued improvement of our equip
ment possible, we extend a cordial in
vitation to visit our print shop and
inspect the working of the new ma
