Letters of patent were granted last
week to another of New Ulro's inventors
of whom the city already boasts a large
number. The patent last week was
granted John (Si) Dengler, connected
with his father in the bakery business,
and is a novel idea to do away with the
labor of greasing bread pans in the larger
shops. The old method of lubricating
bread pans is not only a tedious job, but
also fails of uniformity in spreading the
grease upon the bottom and sides of the
pans. The device invented by Mr.
Dengler eliminates both objections to the
old methods and will no doubt find a
ready market in the larger cities of the
country as it can be manufactured at a
small cost and requires little or no at
tention in its operation. Mr. Dengler
has received dozens of inquiries from
specialty manufacturing concerns in all
The past two weeks.we have received
notice of a change of address of two of
our subscribers, nothing unusual in our
office for we have an average of two or
three changes daily, but there was some
thing unusual about these two partuiclar
changes. The first came from Chicago
and the writer enclosed the yellow label
taken from her paper showing just
exactly what the old address was and
stating clearly what the new address
should be and in the other instance, the
writer at the bottom of his letter put
a line thus: Old address (Street, No.
and City) and New Address (Street No.
and City). We were able to make these
changes without a bit of trouble about
looking up the location of the subscriber
and each of them will receive the paper
at the new address promptly, thus
aving vexation and irritation all around.
These two changes were so different from
the average change of address received
by this office that we mention them for
the benefit of others who change their
location and want the paper changed
also. We know the greater number of
our subscribers personally but there
are a great many of them whose place
of residence is to us quite unknown
we could not remember all if we made it
a point to inform ourselves every time
a subscriber changed his place of abode.
It therefore becomes a matter of great
difficulty at times to make the changes
asked by our subscribers since our system
of records for subscriptions requires that
we keep track of our various accounts
by the place of residence rather than by
the name of the party. When you
want quick service with regard to any
change on your newspaper, tell us your
old address as well as your new one
and we will fix you out promptly and
