William J. Gamble,
INDIVIDUALITY IN TYPEWRITING.
j:any LJttle Peculiarities In the Work of
The typewritten page has no individual
ity for most persons, bnt a study of the
subject shows many characteristics by
which the work of different machines and
different operators cai be distinguished.
This field presents fewer opportunities than
does that of the bandw -iting expert, but is,
i;vvertheless, of some interest and impor
tance. In a legal coi test tbe whole case
might hinge on the authenticity of a page
For instance, it became necessary in a
court not long ago to find out whether one
page of the long typewritten document in
evidence had not been replaced with an
other in which some of the words had been
changed. In this cast; of course the sus
pected page was written on the same kind
of a machine as the others. The difference
between instruments of the various manu
facturers was therefor- of no service.
An expert stenograp her and teacher of
typewriting was callel as a witness. In
reply to questions put by counsel he said
that as a general rule it was not difficult
for an expert to distinguish between the
writing done upon di.Ierent machines of
the same manufacture. Two instruments
might write so nearly alike as to make it
impossible to determine upon which of
them a certain sheet wts turned out. Still
there were many little marks of variance
in the writing of different machines, and
even of the same one, et different times or
when used by different persons. The wit
ness did not believe thai the page in ques
tion was written at the same time that the
others were, nor by the same person. All
might have been writtt-n on the same ma
chine, but not consecutively.
The reasons given t r this conclusion
were, in the first place, that the type used
on page seventeen was clean; on t he others
many of the small letters were clogged up.
The "e" and "s" were especially bad. The
ribbon used for page 17 was not so much
worn as that for the rest of the docu
ment, and the writing was more uniform
in color; the latter fact was in part due to
the superior skill of the writerof the single
rage. The letters were ii better alignment
on that page than on the others, in which
the "t" and "e" were badly out of their
In page 17 the "i" was accurately cen
tered; in the rest it was to the left of
where it should be. The "p"' was upright
on the suspected sheet, .md leaned a trifle
on the others, being turned in the bar.
The one sheet, also, had a wider margin by
two spaces than those which followed and
When asked why he believed that dif
ferent persons wrote t ie sheets he said
that the operator who turned out page
17 was more ex p t th;:n the other. The
former's touch was nort uniform; none of
his letters seemed to i erride each other,
as was sometimes the case on the other
pages. His punctuation inarks did not
perforate the paper. T! e indentations of
his paragraphs were si spaces, against
five on the rest of the document. He used
three spaces between his sentences; the
others only two. The l rst made a space
after a comma: the latte- did not.
The writer of the btifk of the paper was
less acquainted with the rules of punctua
tion than was the other man. One man
always put a period and a colon after
the words "to wit;" the other used only a
comma. For the figure I in the paging of
sheet 17 a lower case T? was used; on the
other sheets a capital "I."' The jury could
hardly help agreeing vith the expert's
conclusions. New York Tribune.
A Correspondent's Experience.
I saw the Ixmgchamps review, entered
Paris with the German column, and in the
Champs Elysees was s.Kken to by tbe
crown prince of Saxony i t the head of his
staff. I immediately be ame a center of
interest on the part of a knot of French
men, who followed me when I quitted the
protection of the German cordon and then
promptly raised the cry of "Spy!" I was
attacked, kntx-ked ilovrn, most of my
clothes were torn off me, i sabot split my
lip open, and men danced on me and kicked
at me while I was teing dragged by the
legs' toward a f mntain, in which such
was the expressed intention I was to be
drowned. From this fale I was rescued
by a picket of nntior.al guards, and pres
ently made pood my rele.-tse. As soon as I
was free and had fullille 1 a grateful duty
toward one who had helped me to my free
dom 1 hurried to the pl ice where 1 bad
engaged a dogcart with a fast and stout
horse to be in readiness. It was neither a
safe nor a pleasant ride through Paris to
tbe St. Denis gate.
But once outside 1 could let the horse
out, and he made iood timeoverthe twelve
miles to Margency, the crown prince of
Saxony s headquarters, yheIlce 1 was al
lwed to dispatch a telegram of consid
eraule length to I.onclo'i. 1 bat accom
plished, I drove Imck to St. iK'iiis in time

A fall as a rule injures a drunken man
much less than a sober one, because the
controlling power of the mind being ren
dered nil through intoxication the body
falls as an inert mass, and thus the chances
of injury are lessened, for, strange though
it may appear, it is no less a fact that the
most numerous cases of injury arising
from a fall are caused by the effort, volun
tary or otherwise, to avert the conse
quences, thus straining the muscles and
tendons. Very rarely are injurious effects
from a fall known in a lunatic asylum for
the same 6imple reason tbe mind has no
Influence over tbe action of the body.
And it is a remarkable and well known
fact to those who have to deal with such
cases that whatever injuries are so caused
heal much more rapidly than in the case
of sane people, the mind having more to
do with retarding or assisting nature's
efforts than is generally known or real
