Masox Citv. May 15. A remarkable
case of what can be done by a blind per
son is now beius; exemplified atSwaledale,
near this city. Some twelve years ago S.
Ik Angell purchased the Swaledale ISee.
and not having enough assistance his
blind sister. Miss Ilattio Angell. prevailed
upon him to allow her to ixo into the office
nnd assist ia the work. For the first lew
days she found occupation in folding pa
pers, etc., and she soo:i became so proiii
cient in lhat that she asked to be allowed
to set type, and was given a case to see
what she could do.
Iu less t ban an hour she had the boxes
learned and her first stickful of type was
set in fifty minutes. Whut is still more
remarkable she can now set us much type
as t he average compositor and doit with
preutcr accuracy. She experiences but
litite trouble with her copy. She is ex
pert in writing the language of the blind,
and the mauer is dictated to her. In or
der to get the typj right side up her mid
dle linger is used in feeling the nicks, and
tiiis is done while the type is being lifted
into position iu the slick. She has not yet
attempted to distribute type, but she ex
pects to soon become master of this art us

if he had beeu a bag of potatoes. There
was much confusion ou the floor nnd in
