A One-Sided Conversation:
"*T"AKE a look through our establishment? Certainly, in a few moments."
I "Yes, wo occupy the whole building?three stories, fifty-two and n naif
by ninety feet. Nearly fifteen thousand squaro feet of floor space. All of
our largest and finest presses are on this floor. This Hie is tho l.te-t addition,
prints a sheet 20x42 at ft maximum speed of 2,400 impressions an hour, running
without perceptible jar or vibration, with a 'click ' that does one good to listen to.
Wo doubt if its equal, for its class of work, is in the State."
"This is tho press we uso for our finest Illustrated Catalogue, School Annual,
and other Hook Work; prints a sheet 31x50. It is driven by a direct, individual
electric motor?no belts or pulleys."
"These two arc for Hail road and Commercial Work, tho largest one being used
J for copying-ink work almost exclusively. All of our presses have automatic counting
4 machines which register tho sheets as they aro primed, leaving no chance for errors la
count. A great many blanks are put up in puds of fifty or one hundred; an
attendant watches the indicator, and when the figures show fifty or a multiple, u
board is laid between the sheets."
"No, the opondor does nothing but cut paper all t'-o time. See, lie must cut
a lot of it; we have a machine solely to sharpen his knives. It's automatic, too,
sharpens a knife forty-eight inches long. It used to cost a dollar when we sent a knifo
out to he sharpened ; wo have u knife to sharpen about every live hours. Quite u
little saving, don't you think?"
"Over thero is the largo electric motor, and beyond is the gas engine, which wo
keep us a ' reserve force' "
"Suppose wo take the elevator, now, to the top floor."
"No, the largo motor runs the elevator, too."
" How many employees? About sixty, all told."
" Very few people have an idea as to the extent of our establishment until they
go through it; tlion they invariably express astonishment."
"Yes, it takes lots of printing to keep them busy constantly. Sometimes we
wonder ourselves where it all comes from."
" No, no ! The people realize that the newspaper is not the only method of
advertising. For certain purposes, the circular is incomparably superior."
"The two mediums are necessary each to tho other. They do not conflict."
"We print a great many Circulars, Price-Lists, and the liko. They have tobe
g?lten out very quickly sometimes."
" Letter Circular? Ten thousand in two hours, if necessary."
"Oh, of course. A reasonable amount of reading-matter."
"That is a Stamping Machine; for stamping in gold or silver on the covers of
Iiuoks, stumping Uibbon Budges, etc."
" Y'es, wo have had it several years."
"Hiding Machines. This one is the kind in ordinary .use. We brag on the
other one: it takes a sheet fifty inches wide. We can rule a job on it that wo had
tosend to Boston once; couldn't get it ruled in Philadelphia."
"Just finished a Pay-iMl Sheet 10x48. Think of a sheet 4S inches wide."
"Yes, it bad a printed head in?. A huge machine in ono department calls for
largo machines in other departments. In this instance, the largo press would have
been of no use without the large ruling machine."
"This is a Uound-Corncring Machine; this i\ Sewing Machine that will stitch
through half an inch of paper, and make, a stitch three-quarters of an inch long, if
we wi-h it so; this a Punching Machine, and this an Eyclotting Machine, for eyelets
like you see in Calendars, Card Price-Lists, etc."
"Folding Machine?folds eight, twelve, sixteen, twenty-four, or thirty-two
puges ; almost any size page."
"Then, here's a Wire Stitching Machine, a double-header?stitches on two
different kinds of work at the saino time. One maybe an eight-page pamphlet and
the other may be as thick as the Century or Jlnr/irr'.s Magazine. You've noticed the
wire staples that bind them together. Same kind of machine: takes the steel win;
from a spool, outs it to an adjustable length, forms it into a staple, drives il through
the book, and clinches it ?120 staples on each side a minute: faster than an operator
can handle the work. Then thu covers :;re. pasted or glued on afterward."
"Oh, yes, we bind all hinds of magazines."
"You can see the progress of a Ledger, Journal, or Cash Hook being made to
order here. First ruled, then tho heading printed, then the sheets inspected, folded,
sewed, and now the Leather Binding being put on. Lots of people think wo buy
the euvers already made, but wo do il all ourselves."
" Didn't know we had an Engraving Department?"
?'Any nnd every kind, from the design for a Catalogue Cover, or t, Letter
Heading, to cutting u wood typo."
" Not much to be seen in that room. The "collating " or "gathering" of tho
"forms" or "signatures" of a pamphlet or book is do no there. Tho forms are
arranged in sequence on the tables and girls walk around the tables and gather otic of
each form until the complete bonk is gathered. Then it is ready for the stitcher.
Sometimes a dozen girls uro walking around the tables, cid biting, at one time."
"A Paging Machine, an old-style Perforating Machine?but I forgot to show
von a modern Perforator, one with live times the capacity of this one; we'll see that
before we go down stairs. Surplus stock of envelopes, material for binding, etc."
"On this floor wo do all tho type-setting and proof-reading?we pay particular
attention to our proof-reading, and you have no idea of tho cure that a painstaking
proof-render exorcises. We recently had a University man to write us that our proof?
reading was equal or belter than they had been getting in Philadelphia."
"Doesn't mutter?we sometimes have German, Latin, Greek, and Hebrew.
English, "as she is spoke." or rather written, muk?s it interesting to a degree. Of
course, wc have all the Dictionaries at our fingers' ends: Webster, the Standard,
" Yes, customers use different standards. We have just finished a Catalogue for
a School that uses Worcester, and, of course, we had to conform to Worcester ii. our
b pel ling throughout tho Catalogue."
" Other reference books liko the Encyclopedia Brltnnnica, Applcton's, National,
various Atlases, Dictionaries of Foreign Languages, Algebraical works, tho I'ocib,
Novelists, Philosophers, etc., must he at hand, also. You would be surprised at th<
familiar quotations that are misquoted. We verify and compare whenever there is
doubt. This is the duty of the proof-reader und hi- assi-tant."
"Here are hundreds of page- of standing type? price-lists, railroad tariff'-, and
items that are changed slightly and printed frequently."
" Y'cs, enough capital in standing type to equip a good-sized prii g office."
"These cabinets contain 'sorts,' or extra quantities of various let'.r*, figures, or
signs that may be needed any moment. Probably a ton that has neve: been used."
"For instance, a Price-List may bo ordered, and it will be full of unusual
measurements (12:1 TA7ff, X ID \,';). signs (10? 80' 47"), reference murks f* t t.j $ li)..
or may require a very large quantity of some particular figure. An ordinary font of
type contains only a limited number of such characters, so we prepare for these prob?
able demands us our judgment suggests. We printed a job a few days ago that
required nearly three thousand (3,000) parenthesis ( ) marks. The number thai
usually accompanies the quantity of type necessary to set up such a job as a whole,
would bo about twenty-live ; this .-hows the necessity for 'sorts.' "
" AVe have in these cubine'..* nearly ten thousand engravings o ?11 kinds, all
catalogued, numbered, und in their proper places. We can usual!) find any one
desired in live minutes."
" The Stereotyping und Rubber Stamp Departments?it's rather warm in there.
Well, you can take a look ul that another time."
"Taking too much of my time? No, this is my business. If you are interested,
you will be telling some of your friends, und that's just what wc want."
" Down to the stock-room, next."
" Keeps one man busy nil the time getting out stock for the presses, etc."
"Wait a moment, here's tho Railroad Ticket Printing .Machine. Prints nnd
numbers them at one operation. Operators are held responsible for correct count, etc,
Of course, every ticket is checked, double checked, before it comes out of the 'cage.' "
"Don't average one error u year."
"There's another machine?fdtprinting long runs on envelopes?that's as fast 09
the Ticket Machine."
" Nearly ten thousand nn hour."
" Automatically, of course"
"Here's the stoak-room."
" A great many of our papers aro made to order : our Stone Bond, and Crvslal

" Five or ten tons lit ono time is not an unusual ordor for this kind_to your left."
" Why, the prosses in tho adjoining room nlono will use up two or three tons in

"No, wo make no effort to 'job' paper. Just for our own needs."
" Hero's where wo keep our record of each order?if you instruct us to duplicate
your last order for Letter Heads or a Blank Book, we get* tho dato from our Ledger,
then the number of the job. This number indicates an envelope containing your
original copy of the job, the proof, the " O. K." sheet, und n completed copy. The

The Interesting History of a Very Younff
Word?Our Postage Stamps?Tho
Tragedy of Evelina.
Yoa uro probably familiar with the
word "boycott" aud its meaning. Tho
interesting history of this word is told
somowlmt as follows by Tho Great
It is a very young word, ouly 17 years
old, haviug been coined in 1880, and it
derives its origin from a Captain Boy?
cott, who has recently passed away. He
was a captuiu in tho English army.
After nwhilo ho becamo tho ugent of an
Irish landlord, aud it becamo his duty
to mauugo tho estate, sco to tho sowing
and gathering of crops, keep the houses
on tho property in repair aud collect
tho rents from tho tennnts.
Tho Irish had long becu complaining
that their routs wcro too heavy. There
had been a loug period of bad harvests,
followed by a famine, aud tho tenants
could uot pay thoir routs. They begged
that their back rents might bo forgiven
thoni and their future rents lowered.
Irish ngitators, as they wero called,
some of thcin members of parliament,
advised tho people to stop bnyiug from,
selling to or working for any landlord
who refused to listen to their demands
and to prevent others from haviug any
dealings with thorn.
This is what is called "boycotting."
Captain Boycott was its first victim.
Ho would not lower tho rents and other?
wise displeased tho peasants. Then the
laborers and tenants refused to havo
any tiling to do with him.
It was harvest time, but tho crops
were left rotting in tho fields, becauso
no ono would lend a hand to gather
them. The farm servants left tho farm,
and there wus no one to feed tho cattle
or milk the cows. Tho country people
round would sell neither food, clothes
nor medicines to any of tho family.
Finally the government canio to the
resuuo of Captain Boycott, thus unpleas?
antly left to himself. Laborers wero
sent, under the protection of soldiers, to
gather tho crops, und tho captain and
his family wero escorted by soldiers to
a pltice of safety.
Thero being no word which fitly de?
scribed this singular state of affairs,
"boycotting" was coined oud in new
editions of tho dictionaries "boycott"
and "boycotting" appear as regular
words of tho English language.
Our Postago Stamps.
Iu an articlo on "Fifty Years of Post
ngo Stamps," in Tho Ladies' Home
Journal, occurs tho following:
Fifty years ago?in July, 1847?Un?
cle Sitin issued his first postage stamps.
Only two values of tho new stamps
wero introduced in 1S47?a (j cent and
a 10 cent stamp, bearing respectively
tho portrait of Franklin in a bronze tint
and Washington in black.
Our postngo stamps aro now printed
by tho government at Washington.
Each press can print four sheets of 400
each iu a minute, 100,000 stamps au
hour, or 1.000,000 a day.
No woman's portrait appears on our
postage stamps, no man's on our coius.
Tho postage aud revenuo stamps of
Undo Satn form a picture gallery com?
prising 48 great Americans?presidents,
statesmen, financiers and warriors.
Washington appears on 25 stumps,
Franklin on 21, Jefferson on 1,1, Jack?
son on 10 and Lincoln on every issue
since 18U(i, except the Columbian series.
Since 1875 it lias been against tho
law to have tho portrait of any living
man on any of tho stamps, notes or
other securities of tho government.
There havo been 2.r>0 different kinds of
postago slumps issued in tho United
States sinco 1847.
British Mounted Police.
In newly settled countries, whom or?
der has scarcely yet been established,
and whero there aro colored men, na?
tives of tho place, ready to rob und bolt
off, the services of mounted policemen
lire very much in request. These men
lead a fret-, open air life, which suits
young fellows whoso birth and upbring?
ing would have, led us to expect to find
them in a different position. Tliey aro
the sort of young *.en who requiro free?
dom of notion and an outdoor life, and
who would rather gallop over the wild
prairio or push their way through tho
junglo with its many dangers and hard?
ships tliuu settlo down iu tho city as a
banker's clerk, a student of law or a
physician. Tho mounted police force of
Australia or the Capo jnst suits such
young men, who often prove themselves
to bo very (hie fellows indeed?bravo
and yet humauo?ready for every emer?
gency, and steady as a rock iu tho dis?
charge of all duty.
Tho Tragedy of Evelina.
Have you heard of Evelina? Shu'da check liko
Sho had Byes liko sky bluo saucers and tho
shapeliest of noses.
And her hatrwas Ion;: and golden, and tier lips
possessed a pout?
Such a doll as Evolinn wasn't often seen about
But her haughty disposition mado her enemies
Topsy said that she had arrogance enough for
five and twenty,
And Miss Rngglt ?, who was crippled, said she'd
give her other leg
To have lovely Evelina lowered just a singlu
'And I think it may bo managed if I speak to
Quoth Miss Haggles in a whisper, "for he's full
of sport and folly.
And she's full of bran nnd sawdust. Leave this
small affair to me,
And 1 promise yon, dear Topsy, you shall SCO
what you shall seel"
8o sho spoke to Puppy Collie, who was fond of
tun and fighting.
And ho seized on Evelina, and ho gave her such
n biting, .
And hu rolled her innpnddlc, and he dried her
in the sun.
And sho hadn't much complexion when his
naughty romp was done.

That is why poor Evolinn has so little left m
That tho other dolls and Topsy and Miss Rag

That is why her noso is broken. That is why.

THE CAR ROLLED ON.
And H? Was Still n Nickel Ahead of the
Woman la Ulaok.
A red faced woman in n black gown
nnd a black bonnet cuuie aboard a Eu
olid avenue car lust Monday and seuted
horself next to a young man whoso face
was concealed behind a Plain Dealer.
When tho conductor came around,
she handed him a ticket.
"Not good ou this lino, ma'am," ho
said nnd handed it baok.
Tho ?woman in black gave a sniff.
"That's too bad," she said. "I
s'posed it was just as good on this lino
as nuy other. Tho conductor told mo it
was. And I'm suro I haven't got any
more change. I'm goiu out to my daugh?
ter's honso. She's sont for me. She's
very sick and so uuxious to 6eo me. I
don't know what I'll do." And she
"Well," said tho conductor coolly,
"I'm B?rry, of course, but no pay no
rido." And he reached for tho boll.
Tho woman in black looked ut the
yonug man with tho newspaper. Ho
met her gaze.
"Madam," ho said, "I'll buy your
ticket for a nickel."
Tho woman hesitated, and tho con?
ductor smiled and furtively wiukod at
n fat man in tho rear seat. Tho ox
chaugo was made, and tho conductor
"I hoped," said tho young man,
"that your unfortnuuto daughter was
better by this time."
The woman in black darted a venom?
ous look at him.
"Oh, yes," ho said, "wo hnvo met
before, and yon aro still a nickel ahead
Then ho went back to his Plain
