What's the Use of Waiting?
"They " flay "all things como to him wno waits," but wo have no
been waiting, and we don't propose to whit. "We KNOW our prices
are right, our work A-l, and if you don't
bring us work v/o will como alter it, in ono
way or another, either by bringing to your
notice our prices, facilities and quality o2
execution, or poreonal interviews. We are
not grumbling; far from it. We've had our
ahare; we are still getting our share. But we
have placed at your disposal a modern, and
almost ideal, printing establishment, with
wen facilities as to. command admiration from ail ith "whom we
have business intercourse. We aro not waiting; havon't timo to wait
An Up-to-Date Printing Office.
One of the vows the writer made whon he was "devil" in a
country printing office was, in effect, that if ho over owned or man
aged a printing establishment, it would be kept clean, at least by .
comparison. At that time he hardly felt the force of the vow, for he
has learned aftor years of experience that it is necessary immediately
after one "going over" to start at the beginning and go over it all
again, ft never ends?just like a housokoepor'8 duties?but not like
tho boy who sees no ubo hi washing his face becauso it will got
Boiled again. But, a clean printing establishment is just as necessary
for tho proper execution of work in our line as light and heat and
power. And the vow has been kopt. Come and see.
We Do Not Believe
There is another city n tho State which sonds such a 3mall proper
tion of its orders for printing and blank books away to our Northern
frionds as Roanoko. All honor to our bankers and business men;
that is?most all of it. Wo must reserve a littlo, as this is our
We Print Anything
That can bo desired or do vised irom movable type, paper and ink?
and brains. Brains aro just as important in our work as paper or ink
or typo. It is tho combination that tells. Wo do not mean to be
egotisticnl at all; but combining thoso things to bring forth a harmo?
nious result has been our study?and wo do claim to know our
ousiuess right thoroughly.
One of tho things which has contributed largely to the success of
our establishment is tho systematic working "together ' of all our
forces in all departments. Thi3 has reduced
to a minimum tho "lost motion" which is
usually to bo found in large industries. If
a minute can be saved h?re, another there,
it is done?an hour ia gained?thus we take
care of tho fleeting moments. Five minutes
wasted daily by each of our employes would mean tho interest on
$10,000 a year. In thoso days of close margins each moment of
timo must bo productive.
Quite Recently, Too
Tho times aro hard, money tight, everything handled econom?
ically?but it cannot possibly stay that way. So wo are pushing
("not shoving") ahead, just as though good timeg wero upon us.
We cannot afford to lag behind or worry; but in times of peaco we
aro preparing for war. And whoc it comes we will havo an es tab
t'.snuicnt mat can uiko euro 01 anytning mat comua?uui things that
do not como now. Recently wo placed an order for one of tho
largest Ibis of now typo ever given at ono timo in Virginia.
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 the most
wondorful piece of mechanism in our establishment?the Railroad
Ticket Printing Machine. Think of it tho next tjrne you purchase
your ticket. Secured behind iron bars and double locks, it at onco
suggests government bonds, with all these safeguards.
On this floor is tho type-setting department, where expert minds and
fingers think and act rapidly and correctly, interpreting at times hand?
writing that would mako Horace Greeley turn groon with envy.
Large, extra large fonts of typo permit tho handling of very large
orders in a most satisfactory and expeditious manner. Our forco in
I this department can set up about as many pages in a day as a man
car read. A plentiful supply of Algebraical, Astronomical, Geometri?
cal signs and characters, accente letters, and "odd sorts" enable us
tc handle difficult and intricate work in spcciul lines.
On the Top Floor
Is our Blank Book Manufactory, ruling rnacheins, including on
which is probably tho legest south of Philadelphia ; our various wire
stitchers, which will tako wire from a spool, cut it tho proper length,
shape it, and drive through a book three-fourths of inch thick, or
ono not so thick, 1"0 a minute; then our paging and numbering
machines, board and paper cuttere, book presses, which exert a
pressure of twenty tons or moro, perforating, punching and eyeleting
machines, and tho engraving department?which latter ia an innova?
tion for this eection.
Is just oppokito and overlooking the lawn of Hotel Roanoke, (ono of
tho finest hotels in the State,) which gives us a magniflcont, bright,
refreshing view at all times. Our business office and press-room are
on the ground floor (along with our prices). Each floor and depart?
ment is connected with tho office by Electric Bells, Speaking Tubes,
and Elevators; and all departments aro bountifully supplied with all
kinds of Labor and Time Saving Appliances.
In Our Press-Room'
Can bo seen the rapid, diminutive and monster cylinder presses
including the famous "Promise Keeper," turning out thousands upon
thousands of sheets every day. Our largest and best paper cutting
machino, the automatic cu'.ting knife sharp?
ener, and tableting appurtenances aro on
this floor. Tho wonderful and poworfw!
electric motor, which propels the machines
on all three floors, is also on this floor. Over
in ono corner, hardly noticeable, is kept in
readiness, as a supplementary power, an
improved Gas Engine, to be attached at
momentary notice, in enso of accident to the
electric motor, or for other causes, i This precludes tho possibility of
a "hole" on the power question.
And Our Stock-Room!
If some of our friends who usually buy a quire or so of paper at a
timo, could look in upon this department, thoy would not ceaso won?
dering for days. Wo do not exaggerate a particlo when wo say yoit
can see A TON OF A KIND; yes, TEN TONS OF A KIND.
You say: "Whut, ten tons of ono kind of paper in a town like
Roanoko?" That's what we said. Como and see. And, besides,
hundreds of other kinds of plain, fancy and uniquo; there are stacks
j of card-board, of a kind, as high as a man, and ho need not bo a
What Can We Not Do
With such facilities? A card, a circular, note head, envelope, pain
phlet, price list, catalogue, book, railroai rate eheet or time table, a
ruled blank or a 1000-page ledger, on any or all, we assure our
friends we are AT HOME, from January 1st to December 31st.

Corsages Closed at tho Sido?Some Trim
It would bo Impossible to sot down a de
scrlptlvo list of nil tho vnriutlons seen In
bodices, for tho pluy of fnnoy is unlimited.
Among tho most conspicuous novelties,
however, uro bodices half of lnco and half
of other material, of whioh one part crosses
over the other, the tipper ono being fas?
tened by ribbons and shoulder knots. Many
corsagesuro closed at tbo sido in a diversity
of ways. Another novolty is tho oulrass
of laco, whioh rises In a point and forms n
corselet, likewise descending in a point on
tho skirt, like a little tubllcr or end of a
flohu. Theso two parts of tbo cuirass ore
separated by a belt of ribbon with n bow.
Tho sleeves of the bodico are of hioe.
Although plain skirts aro still worn,
there Is a growing tendency toward trim?
ming, especially for thin goods. All the
lawns, dimities, cambrics and organdies
aro more or less adorned, Huffy decorations
being prcforrcd, as is tho case also with
thin silks of all kinds. Ruffles orphtitings
of gnu/o or tufTctn are much used, nnd ac?
cordion plaited skirts, especially of tho
"sun" vnrlety, nro having a decided vogue.
They'arc sometimes plain, sometimes em?
broidered, sometimes adorned with Hot
bunds of ribbon, velvet or guipure.
Ordinary skirts for walking ore round,
touching the ground evenly nil around or
escaping it by an equal distance. The
back must be no longer than the front ex?
cept in the case of a train, but trains aro
reserved for elegant ceremonious costumes,
und aro never now soon on the street.
Today's illustration shows a summer
wrap having short bolero fronts of red
grosgrain silk, covered nil over by an em?
broidery of soutache and stool beads. Theso
fronts aro arranged over a full nccordlon
plaiting of black moussclino do sole. The
ctipoliko sloeves nro also of accordion plait?
ed moussclino do sole, us is the rnfllo form?
ing the back, which has a lnrge^ plait, in
tho middle fastened by u knot of black
satin. The plaited modicl collar in lined
with white guipure, which also forms a

HINTS FOR THE WARDROBE.
Abont This Year's Shirt WalsU?Belts of
Hats for young girls aro always round
and are worn toward the front of tho
bead. .The trimming Is comparatively
simple. The coifTuro for both young girls
and young women is waved nil over. The
coll of hair is arranged higher than it ha3
been this winter, and is placet! ulmost on
tho top of the head.
Shire waists aro mado of cambrics, dimi?
ties and ginghams having n muoh more
mixed design than was popular last year.
Several colors aro often combined, find tho
effeot has not tho freshness and cleanness
of tho stripes and other opon patterns
favored last year. Tho newest sleeves nro
?mite closo, except at tho top, wlicro a sud?
den bouffancy is evident. They liavo a
turn back oulf at tho wrist. Silk shirt
waists aro among tho novelties of tho sea?
son, and are worn with linen collnrs aud
men's ties, just llko tho cotton ones.
As long as shirt waists arc worn belts
will, of courso, likewise bo worn. This
year they aro comparatively narrow, of
leather or kid of various tints, of taffeta,
velvet, satin, silk or spangles. Many moro
elaborate bodleos are made to be worn
with a bolt, and in that case tho latter Is
joweled or covered with lnco. It may bo
closed by a buckle, clasp or bow of ribbon.
Sometimes it fastens at the back with long
onds like a child's sash. This stylo is very
pretty for pluitcd gowns of taffeta or mus?
Although fluffy, much adorned cos?
tumes are tho tasto of tho moment, a con?
trast is afforded by the olassof tailor mado
gowns which art; perfectly cut, but very
sinirdo and plain. Of covert cloth, scrgo
or light cloth, they tire onilncntly fnshion
nble looking and yet serviceable.
An illustration is given of a traveling
wrap of changeable silk. It is closed in
front by tabs fastened by born buttons.
Tho fronts of tho wrap form largo rovors
extending from tho neck to the foot. Tbo
pelerine, lined with white satin, joins the
revits at t ho to]i. The turned down collar,
like the rest of tho mantle, is ornamented
with stitching. Tho cuffs nnd pockot flups
