What's the Use of Waiting ?
"They say "all things come to him wno -waits," hut we have no
beon waiting, and we'don't propose to wait. We KNOW our prices
are right, our work A-l, and if you don't
bring us work we will come alter it, in on*
way or another, either by bringing to your
notice our prices, facilities and quality oi
execution, or personal interviews. We are
not grumbling; far from it. We'vo had our
share; we are still getting our sharo. But we
have placed at your disposal a modern, and
almost ideal, printing establishment, with
iuca facilities as to command admiration from all ith whom wo
have business intercourse. We are not waiting; havon't time to wait
An Up-to-Date Printing Office.
One of the vows the writer made when ho was "dovil" in a
country printing offlco 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 time ho hardly felt tho force of the vow, for he
has learned after yoars of exporionce that it is necessary immediately
after one "going ovor" to start at the beginning and go over it all
again. It nover onds?just like a housekeeper's duties?but not like
tho boy who sees no use in washing his face because it will get
soiled again. But, a clean printing establishment is just as nocessary
for the proper execution of work-in our line as light and heat and
power. And tho vow has been kept. Como and see.
We Do Not Believe
Thoro is another city n tho State which sends such a small propor?
tion of its orders for printing and blank books away to our Northern
friend* as Roanoke. All honor to our bankore and business mon;
that is?most all of it. Wo must reserve a little, as this is our
We Print Anything
That can be desired or devised from movable type, paper nnd ink?
and brains. Brains aro just as important in our work as paper or ink
or typo. It is tho combination that tells. We do not mean to bo
egotistical at all; but combining these things to bring forth a harmo?
nious result has boon our etudy?and we do claim to know our
ousiness right thoroughly.
One of tho things which has contributed largely to tho succoss of
our establishment is the 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 hero, another there,
it is done?an hour is gained?thus wo take
care of the Hooting moments. Five minutes
wasted daily by each of our employes would mean tho interest on
$10,000 a yoar. In theso 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 aro pushing
("not shoving") ahead, just as though good times wero upon us.
Wo cannot aflard to lag behind or worry; hut in times of peace wo
are preparing for war. And when it comei we will have an estab
lisnment turn can tnico euro oi anyining mat cornea?ani thing* thcS
do not come now. Recently wo placed an order for one of tho
largest lots oi now typo ever given at one timo in Virginia.
On the Second Floor
A long row of small presses, used for cards, envelopes, statements,
note heads, tickots and email work. Here, also, is probably tho most
wonderful piece of mechanism in our establishment?the Railroad
Ticket Printing Machine. Think of it tho next time you purchase
your ticket. Secured behind iron bars and double locks, it at once
suggests govornmont bonds, with all these safeguards.
On this floor is tho type-setting department, 'vbore expert minds and
fingers think and act rapidly and correctly, interpreting at times hand?
writing that would make Horace Oreeloy turn green with envy.
Large, extra largo fonts of typo permit the handling of very large
orders in a most satisfactory and expeditious manner. Our forco in
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, acconte 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 macheins, including on
which is probably the liegest south of Philadelphia; our various wire
Btitchera, which will tako wiro from a spool, cut it the proper length,
shape it, and drivo through a book three-fourths of inch thick, or
one not so thick, l'JO a minute; then our paging and numbering
machines, board and paper cutters, book presses, which 9xcrt a
pressure of twenty Ions or more, perforating, punching nnd eyeleting
machines, and tho engraving department?which latter is an innova
/ tion for this section.
Is just opposite and overlooking tho lawn of Uotel Roanoke, (ono of
the finest hotels in tho State,) which gives us a magnificent, bright,
refreshing view at all times. Our business office and press-room aro
on tho ground floor (along with our prices). Each floor and depart?
ment is connected with the otQco by Electric Bells, Speaking Tubas,
and Elevators ; and all dopartments aro bountifully supplied with all
itinds of Labor and Time-Saving Appliances.
In Our Press-Room
Can be seen the rapid, diminutive and monster cylinder presses
including the famous "Promise Kcepor," turning out thousands upon
thousands of sheets ovcry day. Our largest and best paper cutting
machino, tho automatic cutting knife sharp
oner, nnd tableting appurtenances aro on
this floor. Tho wonderful and powerfw!
electric motor, which propels tho machines
on all threo floors, is also on this floor. Ovor
in one corner, hardly noticeable, is kept in
readiness, as a supplementary power, an
improved Gas Engine, to be attached at
momentary notico, in case of accident to tho
electric motor, or for other causes. This precludes the possibility of
a "hole" on tho 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, they would not ccaso won?
dering for days. Wo do not exaggerate a particle when wo say 3*ou
can seo 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 wo said. Como and see. And, besides,
hundreds of other kinds of plain, fancy and unique; thoro are stacks
of card-board, of a kind, as high as a mar., and he need not be a
What Can We Not Do
With such facilities? A card, a circular, note head, envelope, pam
phlet, price list, catalogue, book, railroad rate sheet or time table, a
ruled blank or a 1000-pago ledgor, on any or all, we assure our
friends we" are AT HOME, from January 1st to December 31st.

Cheerful Surroundings For tho Bedrotfin.
Wicker and Enamel Choir*.
Bedrooms are usually furnished In light
or bright colors, to Insure cheerfulness of
effect, which is considered beneficial to tho
health. Light natural wood, wicker, rat?
tan or enameled furniture 13 preferred,
light carpets or mattings and pale wall
tints. Flowered cretonnes or silks uro em?
ployed for tho hangings, and a general guy
ety of tone prevails, as a rule. If tho room
is used for slocplng only, however, and not
as a boudoir or sitting room, it is some?
times more satisfactory to have a darker
tono prevail, as darkness is more apt to in?
duce slumber. Nobody likes a l>ed to look
like a cutafnlquo, yet an old fashioned four
poster, with dark, richly colored curtains,
is certainly more reposeful looking than
lacquer, enamel and htco arrangements. A
wall paper of moderately deep color, warm
but not aggressive, floor coverings of tho
samo character and curtains thick enough
to subdue the light give an impression of
quiet, reserve and dignity that is very in
ducivo to repose. Antique furniture,
chests of drawers, tables and chairs of
dark wood, made in a ponderous style, are
particularly suited to tho furnishing of
Louis QlliuKO nnd Louis Scizo styles of
furniture are much in vogue tit present,
(lilt and enameled chairs and couches, of
light and delicate forms, uro upholstered
with delicately colored materials in de?
signs of (lowers, ribbons and shepherds
and shepherdesses. These materials may
be all of silk or of silk and cotton mixed,
tho lattor looking quite its well and being
more serviceable. Tho curtains and por?
tieres may bo llko tho furniture covering,
or of tapestry, which Is still better.
