bring us work wo will como after it, in one
way or another, either by bringing to your
notico our prices, facilities and quality of
execution, or personal interviews. Wo are
not grumbling; far from it. Wo've had our
share; wo aro still getting our sbaro. But we
have placed at your disposal a modorn, and
almost ideal, printing establishment, with
such facilities ns to command admiration from all with whom we
havo business intercourse. Wo are not waiting ; haven't timo to wait.
An Up-to-Date Printing Office.
One of tho vows tho writer mado when he was "dovil " in a
country printing office was, in effect, that if ho ever owned or man?
aged a printing establishment, it would bo kept clean, at least by
comparison. At that timo ho hardly felt tho force of tho vow, for he
has learned after years of experience that it is necessary immediately
after one "going over" to start at tho beginning and go over it all
ngain. It never ends?just like a housekeeper's duties?but not like
tho boy who sees no use in washing his faco because it will got
soiled again. But, a clean printing establishment is just ns necessary
for tho proper execution of work in our lino as light and boat and
power. And tho vow has been kept. Como and see.
We Do Not Believe
Thcro is another city in the State which sends such a small propor?
tion of its orders for printing and blank books away to our Northern
friends as Roanoke. All honor to our bankers and business men;
that is?most nil of it. Wo must reserve a littlo, as this is our
Is j list opposite and overlooking the lawn of Hotel Roanoke, (one of
the finest hotels in the State,) which gives us a magnificent, bright,
refreshing view at all times. JOur business office and press-room nro
on the ground floor (along with our prices). Each floor and depart?
ment is connected with the office by Electric Bells, Speaking Tubes,
and Elevators ; and all departments are bountifully supplied with all
kinds of Labor and Timc-Saving Appliances.
In Our Press-Room
Can bo seen tho rapid, diminutive and monster cylinder presses,
including tho famous "Promise Keeper," turning out thousands upon
thousands of sheets every day. Our largest and best paper cutting
machine, the automatic cutting knife sharp?
ener, and tableting appurtenances nro on
this floor. The wonderful and powerfv*
electric motor, which propels tho machines
on all three floors, is also on this floor. Over
in one corner, hardly noticeable, is kept in
readiness, as a supplementary power, an
improved Gas Engine, to be attached at
momentary notice, in ease of accident to th
electric motor, or for other causes. This precludes tho possibility o
a "hole" on tho power question.
One of the things which has contributed largely to the success o
our establishment is tho systematic working "together" of all our
forces in all departments. This has reduced
to a minimum tho "lost motion" which is
usually to bo found in largo industries. If
a minute can bo saved here, another there,
it is done?an hour is gained?thus wo take
care of the fleeting moments. Five minutes
BLACK & WHITE,

P. O. Box 26. Roanoke, Va
wasted daily by each of our employes would mean tho interest on
$10,000 a year. In these days of close margins each moment of
time must bo productive.
Quite Recently, Too
The times aro hard, money tight, everything handled econom?
ically?but it cannot possibly stay that way. So wo are pushing
("not shoving") ahead, just its though good times wero upon us.
We cannot afford to lag behind or worry ; but in times of peace we
aro preparing for war. And when it comes wo will have an estab?
lishment that can take care of anything that cutties?and things that
do not come now. Recently we placed an order for one of the
largest lots of new type ever given tit one time in Virginia.
We Print Anything
That can be desired or devised from movable type, paper and ink?
and brains. Brains aro just as important in our work as paper or ink
or type. It is tho combination that tells. We do not mean to be
egotistical nt all; but combining these things to bring forth a harmo?
nious result has been our study?and wo do claim to know our
business right thoroughly.
On the Second Floor
A long row of small presses, used for cards, envelopes, statements,
note heads, tickets and small work. Here, also, is probably tho most
wonderful pieco of mechanism in our establishment?the Railroad
Ticket Printing Machine. Think of it the next timo you purchase
your ticket. Secured behind iron bars and double locks, it at once
suggests government bonds, with all these safeguards.
On this floor is tho type-setting department, where expert minds and
fingers think nnd net rapidly and correctly, interpreting at limes hand?
writing that would make Horace Greelcy turn green with envy.
Large, extra largo fonts of typo permit tho handling of very largo
orders in a most satisfactory and expeditious manner. Our force in
this department can set up about as many pages in a day as a man
can read. A plentiful supply of Algebraical, Astronomical, Geometri?
cal signs and characters, acccnto letters, and "odd sorts" enable us
to handle difficult and intricate work in special lines.
On the Top Floor
Is our Blank Book Manufactory, ruling machines, including on
which is probably tho largest south of Philadelphia; our various wire
stitchers, which will take wiro from a spool, cut it the proper length,
shape it, and drive through a book three-fourths of inch thick, or
one not so thick, 120 a minute; then our paging nnd numbering
machines, board and paper cutlers, book presses, which exert 8
pressure of twenty tons or more, perforating, punching and eyeleting
machines, and tho engraving department?which latter is an innova?
tion for this section.
And Our Stock-Room!
If some of our friends who usually buy a quire or so of paper at a
time, could look in upon this department, they would not cease won?
dering for days. We do not exaggerate tt particle when wc sny you
can see A TON OP A KIND ; yes, TEN TONS OF A KIND.
You say: "What, ten tons of ono kind of paper in a town like
Roanoke?" That's what we said. Como and see. And, besides,
hundreds of other kinds of plain, fancy and unique; there aro stacks
of card-hoard, of a kind, as high as a man, and ho need not be a
What Can We Not Do
With such facilities? A card, a circular, note head, envelope, pnm
phlet, price list, catalogue, book, railroad rate sheet or timo table, a

Tlio amateur photographer who is also
an angler is wall awuro that his camera
will back him up when boasting of Iiis
piscatorial prowess. Ono photo I saw
represented a huge flail, tho length of
which appeared to equal that of iv 2 foot

tho "tako" was a littlo dace, or carp,

Ouo of my authorities was onco en?
gaged by both sides in tt law case. A
company, which I will call tho City
Lands Im|>rovomontcompany, wanted to
abolish a certain court leading from
Lombard street to King William street
and were willing to establish in its stead
a passage through cno of their own
buildings. Tho company 's ploa was that
tho court was n dingy, not to say dirty,
ouo, and, furthermore, that it was haunt*
cd by loaf era of questionable character.
Counsel for tho other side, representing
merchants having offices in tho court,
stoutly maintained that tho passage was
well lighted and eminently respectable.
Photographs wore handed in from both
sides. Tho first photo showed a narrow,
disreputable looking alloy, strewn with
rubbish and fallen hoarding. Tho other
picture, however, showed tho court in
dispute to bo it fairly broad, well lighted
city thoroughfare, frequented by mer?
chants of thriving appearance. These
photographs wore taken for t ho houso of

Machino company vacated their prem?

the company tho second tenant loft tho
old name on tho windows and over tho
door, hut added tho word "lato" in very
mimito characters for his own protec?
tion. Tho Shuttle company waxed
wroth, brought mi action and engaged a
photographer to tako a view of tho of- j
feuding shop front from a tailor's win- j
dow opposite. Wlion this photograph
was produced in court, it was handed to
tho presiding jndgo with a powerful '
glass, whereupon his lordship was able
to perceive that what appeared to tho
eyo to bo a mere ornamental dash was
in reality tho protecting word "late."
Tho photographer himself, by tho way,
was not aware of this. Tho nggrioved

It Welched Too Mach For tho Stonic-.st
One of tho interesting features of the
laroczar's funeral was, as usual, tho two
men clad in mcditrval armor, one on
horseback and tho other on foot.
Tho mounted knight had his visor
open, and his armor was of burnished
gold, which gii'ttcrcd in tho sun. Ho
Tho other was on foot. His armor
was coal Mack steel. His visor was
closed, and in his hand ho bore a drawn

of SS. Pet'-.- aud Paul, where tho impe?

fainted during tho march from tho
Winter palace to the placo of interment
and was carried to tho hospital, where
ho died the same night.

Tho most famous southern madstone

Walker of Tallahassee, Pia. Tho stono
was presented to the governor several
years ago by the person who took it from
tho stomach of a deer. Tho valuable lit?
tlo concretion is oblong in shape, about
\% inches in length and of a bluish gray
color. One end tapers to a blunt, point;
tho other is flattened and has an aper?
ture through which the spongy, porous
interior may ho plainly seen. When in
use, tho opening is applied directly over

which forms tho interior of the stone is
supposed to "suck out" and absorb tho
poisonous venom, whether injected by a
deadly serpent or a rabid dog. Persons
who havo seen tho stono applied declare
