not grumbling; far from it. We'vo had our

An Up-to-Date Printing Office.
Ono of tho vows tho writer made when he was "devil" 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 time ho hardly felt the forco of tho vow, for he
has learned after yoara of experience that it is necessary immediately
after ono "going ovor " to start at tho beginning and go over it all
again. It ncvor ends?just liko a housokoopor's duties?but not like
tho boy who sees no uso in washing hia f.ice because it will get
soiled again. But, a clean printing establishment is just as necessary
for tho propor execution of work in our line as light and heat and
power. And tho vow has boen kept. Come and see.
We Do Not Believe
Thoro is ar.othor city h tho State which sends such a small propor?
tion of its orders for printing and blank books away to our Northern
friends as Iloanoko. All honor to our bankers and business men;
that is?.aost all of it. Wo must resolve a little, as this is our
We Print Anything
That can bo desired or devised from 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
egotistical at all; but combining these things to bring forth a harmo?
nious result has been our study?and wo do claim to know our
ousincss ngnt thoroughly.
Ono ol the things which has contributed largely to the success of
our establish men t is tho systematic working "together ' of all our
forces in all departments. This has reducod
to a minimum tho "lost motion" which is
usually to bo found in large industries. If
a minute can bo saved here, another there,
it is done?an hour is gained?thus wo take
caro cf tho fleeting moments. Five minutes

wasted daily by each of our employes would moan tho interest on
$10,000 a year. In thoso day3 of closo margins each moment of
timo must bo productive.
Quite Recently, Too
Tho times aro hard, money tight, everything handled cconom.
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 afford to lag behind or worry; but in times of peace wo

Largo, extra largo fonts of typo permit tho 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

to handlo difficult and intricate work in special lines.

pressure of twenty urns ur more, perforating, punching and eyeleting
machines, and the engraving department?which lattor is an innova?

Is just opposite and overlooking the lawn of Hotel Roanoke, (ono of
the finest hotels in the State,) which gives us a magnificent, bright,
refreshing view at all times. Our business otlice and press-room are
on tho ground, floor (along with our prices). Each floor and depart?

Onco upon a timo tho woman whe
wished to economize took hex* bodice to
a celebrated fitter and let n seamstress
make her skirt, but wo bnvo changed
all tbut now. As The Puritan says,
tho woman who makes a science of dress
knows that that intangible thing which
she calls "stylo" depends upon her out?

hut if the outline of the whole figure is
not satisfying, harmonious and full of
something better than piotnresqucne.ss,
something more to be desired even than
grace?uiodisbness?tho gown is not a
success, and this supremo quality is
given by the set of tho skirt moro than
anything else. Tin- following points
concerning the new skirts aro also
furnished by the authority just quoted:
The new skirts are froo from crino?
line, haircloth or any artificial distend- !
er. They are not narrow, but fall in
full, handsome folds. Many of them
an; fitted to the figure by tucks all
around, but the most graceful have a
plain front breadth and largo plaits
turned toward tho front over the hip.-,
for large hips are fashionable just now.
There is: an unusual proportion of thin
materials this season?organdies and
canvases in linen and cotton, und silks.
Among the summer silks, tho flowered
satin finished foulards, aro the most to
be desired. It is not necessary that these
pretty things should be made up over
silk. Many people find them much more
desirable for summer wear when com?
bined with colored lawns. Tho lawns
aro more delicate in color than former?
ly, and the under skirt is as beautiful in
finish as tho outer, in somo cases being
ruffled with lace to tho knee or above.
The outer skirts of all the thin silks |
and satins us well as tho muslins aro
made separate from the linings, giving
a very full and airy effect. The skirts
of the gowns aro all fluffy. Old fash?
ioned bareges and mozuinbiques are re?
appearing as new fashioned goods.
Spanish flounces, accordion plaiting
and ruffles, besides lace insertions and
tucks, uro all used as skirt garniture.
One pretty white organdie skirt has not
a scrap of lace, but is trimmed *? fie
km c with close laid ruffles of tho or?
gandie. A good sample of this sort of
costume is shown in a garden party
The separate skirt of the moment
is of black satin. Tho velours poplins
which tho manufacturers pressed upon
ns all winter have never been popular.
Tho full, rich skirt of plain black satin
is tho accepted background for tho real?
ly effective bodices for little dinners
and the theater. Those skirts must al?
ways bo worn with h-igh necked bod?
ices, nothing being in worst; taste than
a low necked "emergency waist." It is
tho last confession of being induced to
a makeshift for an evening dross.
Belts and Neckbands.
Fancy metal and t mimel belts set
with colored stones arc now much worn

ments fo match. These es? icdiugly

A sick man is like a
man who goes up in a
balloon. He is blown
hither and thither by
the winds of disease.
A traveler by rail or
steamer has a regular
track. "He is reasona?
bly certain of reaching
a given destination;
but the balloonist is at
the mercy of totally
uncertain elements. No track, no course,
no rudder, no certainty that any breeze may
not bring destruction.
So with the sick man. His disordered
constitution renders every natural operation
uncertain. No organ can be depended on
to do its normal work. The stomach will
not digest food; the liver will not filter bil?
ious poisons from the blood; the kidneys
and skin will not excrete the waste. No
regular nourishing or purifying process is
going on. There is no certainty except the
certainty of suffering.
In all dyspeptic, bilious, debilitated con?
ditions, what is needed is to change the ab?
normal, erratic operations of the system
into a natural, regular, straightforward pro?
gress in the right direction. Nothing in the
world will do this so rapidly and certainly
as Dr. Pierce's Golden Medical Discovery.
It directly regulates the vitalizing func?
tions. It sets the stomach and liver into
natural, healthy operation and gives the
blood-making glands power to manufacture
an abundance of pure, rieh blood.
It creates appetite; builds up muscular
strength, and banishes nervousness and
neuralgia. As it can be assimilated by the
weakest stomach, its nourishing properties
are far superior to nauseating cod liver oil
in severe coughs and all wasting diseases.
The druggist who recommends something
else as "just as good " is thinking more of
his extra profit on the "just as good " kind
than of your welfare.
