What's the Use of Waiting ?
"They " say "all things come to him who ?waits," hut we have no
been waiting, and we don't propose to wait. Wo KNOW our price*
aro right, our work A-l, and if you don't
bring us work we will come alter It, in one
way or another, either by bringing to your
notico our prices, facilities and quality oif
execution, or personal interviews. Wo are
not grumbling; far from it. Wo've had our
share; wo aro still getting our share. But we
havo placed at your disposal a modern, and
almost ideal, printing establishment, with
To BALL & MAY Dr.
?iucn facilities as to command admiration from all ith whom we
have business intorcourso. Wo are not waiting; haven't time to wait
An Up-to-Date Printing Office.
One of the vows the writer mado whon he was "devil" in a
country printing offlco was, in effect, that if he ever owned or man?
aged a printing establishment, it would ho kept cloan, at loast by
comparison. At that time he hardly felt tho force of tho vow, for he
has learned aftor years of oxperlence that it is necessary immediately
after ono "going over" to start at the beginning and go ovor it all
again. It never onds?juBt like a housokeeper's duties?but not like
tho boy who boos no uso in washing his face because it will got
soiled again. But, a clean printing establishment is just as necessary
for the proper ox ecu lion of work in our line as light and heat and
power. And tho vow has been kept. Como and see.
We Do Not Believe
There is another city ii the State which sonds such a small propor?
tion of its orders for printing and blank books away to our Northern
friends as Koanoko. All honor to our bankers and business men;
that is?most all of it. Wo must rosnrve a littlo, as this is our
We Print Anything
That can be desired or devised from movablo type, paper and ink?
and brains. Brains aro just as important in our work as papor or ink
or typo. It is tho combination that tells. We do not mean to ho
egotistical at all; but combining these things to bring forth a harmo?
nious result has boon our study?and we do claim to know our
ouainoss right thoroughly.
Ono of tho things which has contributed largely to tho success of
our establishment is tho systematic working "together ' ot all our
forces in all departments. This has reduced
to a minimum tho "lost motion" which is
usually to be found in largo industries. If
a minute can bo saved hero, another thoro,
it is clono?an hour is gained?thus wo take
euro of tho fleeting moments. Five minutes
wasted daily by each of our employes would mean tho interest on
510,000 a year. In these days of close margins each momont of
timo must ho productivo.
Quite Recently, Too
Tho times aro hard, money tight, everything handled econom?
ically?but it cannot possibly stay that way. So wo aro pushing
("not shoving") abend, just as though good times wero upon us.
Wo cannot afl:ird to lug behind or worry; but in times of peaeo wo
aro preparing for war. And whon it comoa we will havo an ostab
nsnuicm tust can uuce euro oi anytmng that coima?nn? thingn that
do not como now. Recently wo placed an order ior ono of tho
largest lots oi now typo over given at ono timo in Virginia.
On the Second Floor
A long row of small presses, used for cards, envelopes, statements,
note heads, tickots and small work. Hero, also, is probably the most
wonderful piece of mechanism in our establishment?tho Kail road
Ticket Printing Machine. Think of it tho next timo you purchase
your ticket. Secured bohind iron bars and double locks, it at once
suggests government bunds, with all thoso safeguards.
On this floor is the type-sotting department, ?whore expert minds and
fingers think and act rapidly and correctly, interpreting at times hand?
writing that would make Horace Greeley turn green with envy.
Largo, extra largo fonts of type permit the handling of very large
orders in a most satisfactory and expeditious manner. Our force in
this department can sot up about as many pages in a da}' as a man
car road. A plentiful supply of Algebraical, Astronomical, Geometri?
cal signs and characters, acconte letters, and "odd sorts" enable us
to handlo difficult and intricate work in special lines.
On the Top Floor
Is our Blank Book Manufactory, ruling maeheins, including on
which is probably tho U.-gcst south of Philadelphia; our various wiro
stitchers, which will tako wire from a spool, cut it tho proper length,
shapo it, and drivo through a book three-fourths of inch thick, or
ono not so thick, 1110 a minute; then our paging and numbering
machines, board and paper cultets, book presses, which exert a
pressure of twenty tons or more, perforating, punching and eyeleting
machines, and tho engraving department?which latter is an innova?
tion for this section.
Is just opposite and overlooking tho lawn of Hotel Koanoke, (one of
tho finest hotels in tho State,) which gives us a magnificent, bright,
refreshing view at all times. Our business oflico and press-room aro
on tho ground floor (along with our prices). Each floor and depart?
ment is connected with tho olflco by Electric Bells, Speaking Tubns,
nnd Elevators ; and all departments aro bountifully supplied with all
kinds of Labor and Time-Saving Appliances.
In Our Press-Room
Can bo seen tho rapid, diminutive and monster cylinder pressoB
including the famous "Promiso Keeper," turning out thousands upon
thousands of sheets every day. Our largest and best paper cutting
machino, tho automatic cutting knifo sharp
onor, and tableting appurtenances are on
this floor. Tho wonderful and poworfu'
electric motor, which propels tho machines
on nil three floors, is also on this floor. Ovor
in one corner, hardly noticeable, is kept in
readiness, as a BupplomenUiry power, an
improved Gas Engine, to be attached at
momontary notice, in case of accident to tho
electee motor, or for other causes. This precludes tho possibility of
a "hole" on tho powor question.
And Our Stock-Room I
If some of our friends who usually buy a quiro or so of paper at a
time, could look in upon this department, they would not cease won?
dering for days. Wo do not exaggerate a particle when we say you
can see A TON OF A KIND; yes, TEN TONS OF A KIND.
You say: "What, ten tons of ono kind of paper in a town like
Koanoko?" That's what we said. Come and sec. And, besides,
hundreds of othor kinds of plain, fancy and unique; there are stacks
of card-board, of a kind, as high as a man, and ho need not ho a
What Can We Not Do
With such facilities? A card, a circular, note head, envelope, pam
phlot, price list, cataloguo, book, railroad rate sheet or timo table, a
ruled blank or a 1000-page ledger, on any or all, wo assuro our
friends wo are AT HOME, from January 1st to December 31st.

JACKETS AND WRAPS.
Tho Former Are Short, Silk Lined and Gay
Most of tho lightweight Jackets are
very short. They uro nuido of thin oloth
and llnuil with silk of u contrasting color,
usually light and guy. Tho jackets tbom
solves aro also qulto brilliant, being scon
iu scarlet, all shades of clear and ollvo
green, bright blues and purples, as well as
in the standard black, gruy, belgo and
tan. These ?ny jackets nro very pretty
worn with n black or modo colored gown.
Soino are entirely plain, others trimmed
with little or much elaboration. Both
jackets und capos uro uiorolavishly adorned
than usual this season, although capes for
ordinary wear aro not so bright in tone as
jackets of tho same grade. Black, grays
and modo tints uro proforrod for tbo for?
mer. Among tho trimming used for both
aro mohair braids, both wide und narrow,
cord, galloons with metal threads Inter?
woven and embroidery. Extromely ex?
pensive and fanciful jackets aro made of
very pale cloth, with rovers, cuffs and pock?
et flaps of bright roso or blue cloth em -
broidoredwith silver. Others aro lncrustcd
with applications of embroidered luce,
whilo on still others aro boloros and eton
shapes, embroidered In silk on tho body of
tho garment. Many of them aro open in
front, showing a plastron or frilled vest.
There is also a variety of hybrid wraps
which partake of the character of lx)th jack?
et and capo and yet aro neither. These
are fitted behind and In front or behind
only and huvo wing sleeves or pelerines
of plaited material falling over tho arms.
There is room for much fancy in these
Wraps, and in black, with lace, jut, em?
broidery and frilllngs of moussclino do
soie, they arc decidedly effective. Applica?
tions of white or yellow luco may be em?
ployed for them, or mutallio embroidery,
but they are only sifitnblo for formal wear
when thus richly adorned.
Tho sketch shows n summer costume of
ecru linen. Tho plain skirt has a deep,
full flounce around the lower nurt. headed
by a band or wide, wnito guipure. The
bodloo has a plaited chemisette of ooru
linen and a Imhro of white gulpuro over
ecru silk. The very high, wrinkled coreo
let is of ml geranium surah. Tho closo
sleeves are slightly bouffant at tho top and
arc finished with frills of gulpuro at tho
wrists. The collar is of guipure. Tho
hat of geranium red straw is trimmed
with red roses und plaited red canvass.
Ilucucs of Mousnellne do Solo?Various
Capes aro Infinitely varied, hut they all
havo one thing in common?that is, mous
Eollno du soio trimming in tho form of
ruches or plnltings. Around tho edge, at
the nock and on tho shoulder caps, this
fluffy, transparent decoration asserts Itself
voluminously. As these ruchings and
plaitings may bo bought by tho yard,
ready made, it is not dillicultto rejuvonoto
u last yenr's capo by cutting it short and
putting on this fashionable adornment no
cording to tho newest modelB. Yokes und
motifs of jet are also much worn, und for
tho capes themselves moire, satin, breche
silk and tulle, gauzo and moussellno do
soio over changeable silk nro employed.
Somo of these capes havo long ends om
hroidercd with jet and trimmed with
ruffles. Others havo u closo jacket body
or a tight bolero with capos for Fleoves
mudo of plnltings or superposed ruffles.
There is another stylo of summer wrap
having a sort of blouse of shirred laco
with a jet yoke. Two full frills of the laco
form a sort of short sleeve, and a rucho of
lace composes the collar. A double jubot
of cream lace extends down tho front to
Tho illustration shows n very full capo
of beaded black net over black silk. It
has an oddly shaped yoko of jet and is cut
away and carried into the figure in front
to give a bolero effect, tho bolero being
edged with jet fringe. A full plaiting of
black silk gau/.c with a beading trims tho
edge of the capo, and two largo bows of
black satin are placed in front. There is
a very full collarette of black plultod gauze.
The hat of white straw is covered with
plaitings of whito gauzo and is trimmed
with green velvet and black plumes fas?
tened by a paste buckle.
