developing. One of the many small
article newled is the printing frame,
which iu itself Is very simple in con
struction. A Brooklyn photographer
has patented a few minor Improve'
incuts to photo printing frames which
add to the facility of printing from the
negatives. This frame is made of
boards in two parts, with handles at
the end of each part.
The two sections are hinged together
at the ends opposite the handles, pref
erably with spring hinges, so that the
apparatus is normally held In a closed
Iosition. In the center of the back sec
tion Is au opening, rectangular lu form.
The front part Is divided transversely
ne-ar the end. the division being con
nected by hinges. It will thus be seen
that by opening one part on the hinge
the sheet of sensitized paper can easily
1h placed over the opening, which is,
of course, covered by glass, and in
order to determine the progress of the
copying the top part can be turned
backward and the edge of the sheet
turned up in the usual manner. A pad
in the top portion securely holds the
sheet in position. New Orleans Times-Democrat.
