A One-Sided Conversation:
"*T"AK.E a look through our establishment? Certainly, in n few moments."
\ "Yes, we occupy the whole building?three stories, fifty-two and a half
by ninety feet. Nearly fifteen thousand square feet of Hour space. All of
our largest and finest presses nre on this floor. This rno is the Lte-t addition,
. prints a sheet 20x42 at a 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 Stato."
"This is the press wo uso for our finest Illustrated Catalogue. School Annual,
and other Book Work; prints a sheet 31x50. It is driven by u direct, individual
electrio motor?no belts or pulleys."
"These two are for Railroad and Commercial Work, the largest one beim: used
for copying-ink work almost exclusively. All of our presses have autonuitie counting,
machines which registor the sheets as they arc printed, leaving no ubitncu for I'rrors la
count. A great many blanks are put up in puds of fifty or one hundred ; an
attendant watches tho indicator, and when the figures show fifty or a multiple, ? '
board is laid between tho sheets."
"No, the operator docs nothing but cut paper nil the tim*. See. he inu?t cut
a lot of it; wo havo a machino solely to sharpen his knive*. It's automatie, too,
sharpens a knife forty-eight inches long. It used to cost a dollar when we sent a knife
out to be sharpened; wo have a knife to sharpen about every five hours, yuito a
little saving, don't you think?"
"Over there is tho largo cloctric motor, and beyond is the gas engine, which we
keep as a 1 reserve force.' "
"Suppose we take the elevator, now, to tho top floor."
" No, the largo motor runs the elevator, too."
" How many employees? About sixty, all told."
"Very few pcoplo havo an idea as to tho extent of our establishment until they
go through it; then they invariably oxpress astonishment."
"Yes, it takes lots of printing to keep them busy constantly. Sometimes we
wonder ourselves where it nil conies from."
" Ng, no ! The people roulizo that the newspaper is not the only method of
advertising. For certain purposes, the circular is incomparably superior."
"Tbc two mediums are necessary each to tho other. They do not conflict."
"Wo print a great many Circulars, Price-Lists, and the like. They have to be
gotten out very quickly sometimes."
" Letter Circular? Ten thousand in two hours, if necessary.*'
"Oh, of course. A reasonable amount of reading-mutter."
"Tliat is a Stamping Machino; for stumping in gold or silver on tho covers of
Hooks, stumping Hibben Badges, etc."
"Yes, wo have had it several years."
" Pure gold.''
" Biding Machines. This one is tho kind in ordinary use. Wo brag on tho
other one: it takes a sheet fifty inches wide. We can rule a job on it that we hud
to send to Boston once; couldn't get it ruled in Philadelphia."
"Just finished a Pay-Roil Sbeet 19x48. Think of a sheet 48 inches wide."
" Yes, it hud a printed heading. A large machino in one department culls for
largo machines in other departments. In ibis instance, tho large press would have
been of lib use without the large ruling machine."
"This is a Hound-Cornering Machine : this a Sewing Machine that will stitch
through half tin inch of paper, and make a stitch three-quarters of mi inch long, if
we wi*ii it so; this a Punching Machine, and this an Eydotting Machine, for eyelets
like you see in Calendars, Curd Price-Lists, etc."
"Folding Machino?folds eight, twelve, sixteen, twenty-four, or thirty-two
pages; almost any size page."
"Then, here's n Wire Stitching Machine, a double-header?stitches on two
different kinds of work at the same time. One maybe an eight-page pamphlet and
the other may be as thick as the Century or Harper's Muyazine, You've noticed the
win; staples that bind them together. Snine kind of machine: takes the steel wire
from li spool, cuts it to un adjustable length, forms it into a staple, drives it through
the book, und clinches it?120 staples on each side u minute: luster than an operator
can bundle the work. Then the covers :ire pasted or glued on afterward."
"Oh, yes, we bind all kinds of magazines."
You can see the progress iif a Ledger. Journal, or Cash Hook being made to
order here. First ruled, thou the heading printed, then the sheets inspected, folded,
sowed, and now the Leather Binding being put on. Lots of pcoplo think we buy
the covers already made, but \vu do it all ourselves."
" Didn't know we hud un Engraving Department? "
"Any and every kind, from the design for a Catalogue Cover, or u Letter
Heading, to cutting a wood type."
" Not much to be seen in that room. The "collating " or " gatheringof the
"forms" or "signatures" <>f n pamphlet or book is dene there. The forms are
arranged in sequence on the tables und girls walk around tho tables and gather one of
each form until the complete book is gathered. Thun it is ready for the stitcher.
Sometimes a dozen girls are walking around the tables, collating, at one time."
" A Paging Machino, an old-stylo Perforating Machine?but I forgot to show
vou a mildern Perforator, one with live limes 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 we do all the type-setting and proof-reading?we pay particular
attention to our proof-reading, and you have no idea of the care that u painstaking
proof-reader exorcises. We recently had a University man to write us that our proof?
reading was equal or better than they bail been getting in Philadelphia."
" Doesn't matter?wo sometimes have Gorman, Latin, Greek, and Hebrew.
English, "as she is spoke." or rather written, makes it interesting to a degree. <>!'
course, wo havo all the Dictionaries at our fingers' ends: Webster, the Stundard,
" Yes, customers use different standards. We have just finished a Catalogue for
u School that uses Worcester, and, of course, we had to conform to Worcester h; ? hiv
spelling throughout the Catalogue."
" Other reference books like the Encyclopedia Britannien, Applcton's, National,
various Atlases, Dictionaries <>f Foreign Languages, Algebraical Works, the Poets,
Novelists, Philosophers, etc., must beat hand, also. You would bo surprised tit the
familiar quotations that are misquoted. Wo verify and compuro whenever there is
doubt. Tills is the duty of the proof-rcador und Iih assistant."
"Here arc hundreds of page- of standing typo?price-lists, railroad tariffs, and
items that are changed slightly and printed frequently."
" Yob, enough capital in standing type to equip a good-sized prii g oflico."
"These cabinets contain 'sorts,' or extra Quantities of various lei'.m, figures, or
signs that may be needed any moment. Probably a ton that bus novel been used."
*" "For instance, a Price-List may be ordered, and it will be full of unusual
measurements (123 ,,V.,T X 10 !';), signs (10? 80' 47"), reference marks (* t % jj g
or may require a very largo quantity of some particular llguro. An ordinary font of
tvpe contains only u limited number of such characters, so wo prepare for these prob- '
able demands as our judgment suggests. Wo printed a job a few days ago that
required nearly three thousu'id (3,000) parenthesis ( ) marks. The number that
usually accompanies the quantity of type necessary to set up such a job as a whole,
would bo about twenty-live ; this shows the necessity for 'sorts.'"
" We have in these eabinots nearly ten thousand engravings ? "11 kinds all
catalogued, numbered, and in their proper places. We can 'isualt) find any one
desired in live minutes."
?'The Stereotyping and Rubber Stamp Departments?it's rather warm in there.
Well, you can take a look at 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, and that's just what we want."
"Down to the stock-room, next."
" Keeps one man busy all the time getting out stock for the presses, etc."
"Wait a moment, here's the Railroad Ticket Printing Machine. Prints and
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 tho 'cage.' "
"Don't average one error u year."
"There's another machine?for printing long runs on envelopes_that's as fast us
the Ticket Machine."
" Nearly ten thousand an hour."
" Automatically, of course."
" Here's the stock-room."
"A great many of our papers are made to order: our Stono Bond, and Crvslal
Spring Bruneis?you've noticed the water-marks? "
" Five or ton tons at one time is not an unusual ordor for this kind_to your left.''
" Why, the presses in the adjoining room alone will use up two or three tons in
a day, sometimes."
" No, we make no effort to ?job' paper. Just for our own needs."
" Here's where we keep our record of each order?if you instruct us to duplicate
your last order for Letter Heads or a Blank Book, wo get the date from our Ledger,
then tho number of the job. This number indicates un envelope containing your
, original copy of the job, the proof, the " O. K." sheet, und a completed copy. The
record will also show who received the order, whether by letter, 'phone, or personally,
the date stock was gotten out, tho quantity, then the nuines of the various oper?
ators in the several departments who put ' time' on the job, the machines on which
it was run, the date it went to the delivery or shipping clerk, tho amount of the
charge, the cost, and finally, the receipt from the customer showing that it was
received in good order."
" Detail? yes, infinite; but each job has its peculiarities that make it different
from its companion that is being handled at the sumo time, requiring tho exercise of
different degrees of knowledge, experience, or cxportness?so there is no danger of
"No. no! we have orders from all over Virginia, West Virginia, North Carolina.
Tennessee, etc., and at this moment we are filling an order for ten thousand Cata?
logues for a customer in Washington, and another order for about ten thousand
Circulars for a customer in Now York. Both orders-received undercompctitive bids."
" Electric Bells, Speaking Tubes, and Dummy Elevators to each department,
and Individual Tclephono to tho Foreman, save many a step and a great deal of
time, and each moment counts on a ' rush ' job. '"
"Yes. its interesting to us, as often as wo go through, and a double pleasure
when our friends enj03-.it."
'?That's all right?will bo glad to show them through at any time."

MY LADY'S SECRET.
My lady always smiled?not much to do.
But when toe hours and days increase in

when youth and luv? grow dim in backward
And lifo la but to bear and stiU forbear.
All, then, her gcntlo sweetness, andefilod
By years of bitterness, shono forth. Sho smllod.
My Indy always smiled, in lifo and death.
Some envied her a lifo that seemed all smiles.
And Homo cried out or caught a sobbing breath,
Belf pitying, and God and man reviled.
But some, to sorrow's burden reconciled.
Were glad the gladness of her face to seo
Through toil and care and heartless apathy.
But when they laid my lady with tho flowers
Tu sleep, where wuko a thousand smiling
A solitary father, praying hours
Beneath grand arch und gravo cathedral
Thanked, for, my lady's rest, tho King of
Ho know her soul hod yearned a wcany whilo
To sleep and rest the burden of a smile!

and her little girl wero alouo in their

Everything seemed peaceful, and there
was no thought of dunger. Tho mother

recent raid on whisky stootl in the door?

lady had no whisky, but offered them
food anil drink. The Indians, however,
wero drnnk, and before tho mother
could interfere tho roughest seized tho
little girl and wus making off with her
when tho dog, which had wandered
away a short distance, came bounding
back. In an instant ho had tho savagu

during a recent stay in Washington.
"I once had as a client a thrifty Hun?
garian who invested eaoh month $1 in
the lottery. He would never spend any
more, and often when I reproved him
for throwing away that modest amount
be would declaro that ho'd hit the big
prize some day.
"And, sure enough, ho did. It was
early in 1888 that ho camo dancing into

low's brain. ?(o sooner had ho got pos?
session of his* fortune than he started
ont on a spree that lusted nearly a week.
During that time he threw his money
away as though it would last forever,
and no doubt ho was robbed of a goodly
sum. Anyway he didn't begin sobering
until tho last ceut was gouo. As soon
as the Hungarian camo to his senses
and realized that all of the $15,000 had
absolutely vanished he concluded that
life wasn't worth living, and, locking
himself up in his room, ho sent a bullet
through his brain.
"Tho Monday following tho suicide a
letter came, addressed to tho dead man,
iuformiug him that by tho death of au
undo in tho old country ho had como
into tho possession of property worth in
tho neighborhood of $250,000.
"Now, that is a very fair hard luck
story, and it has tho virtue of truth. I
havo ouo moro of tho same sort, not
quite so tragic, but just as authentic.
This happened to myself. A well known
old character about tho city camo into
my office ouo morning aud, lamenting
that ho was'busted,'asked mo to be?
come joint owner with him in a lottery
ticket valued at $1. I told him that I
didn't caro to invest, but as we walked
down stairs, knowing his weakness, I
invited him to have n drink. He accept?

50 cent piece. Tho quarter I got back
was passed to the owner of tho ticket.

gist as ho drew a nickel's worth of
sweetened bubbles from tho soda foun?

about the 'soda water wink' and all
such nonsense about selling whisky at
tho soda founts. I've been in this busi?
ness ever since it was a business, aud I
never yet ran across tho 'soda wnter

glass of soda water would niako a heath?
enish mixture which no ouo would cure

course, would be a compound which
might tieklo tho palate, but I have
never been asked for it. Tho fact is that
any man who wants a drink of whisky
can get it elsowheru than in a drug store
without any trouble whatsoever. In u

the same speech all over the state. An
old man who heard it the first night
was so delighted that ho asked Crisp
where ho was to speak tho next day.
When the colonel saw tho old man in

change his speech to give it a.semblance
of originality, and so delighted tho old
man that ho insisted on knowing tho
colonel's next engagement. Ho follow?
