A One-Sided Conversation:
TAKE a look through our establishment? Cortainly, in a few moments."
"Yes, wo occupy tho wholo building?threo stories, fifty-two und n r.?lf
by ninety feet. Nearly fifteen thousand square feet of floor t-pueo. AH ?>f
our largest and ilnest presses aro on this floor. This tho is the Lto-t tiddiii )>,
mints u sheet 29x42 at a maximum speed of 2,400 impressions tin hour, running
vilhout 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 wo uso for our finest Illustrated Catalogue, School Annual,
iml other Hook Work; prints a sheet 81x50. It is driven by a direct, individual
slectric motor?no bolts or pulleys."
"These two are for Railroad and Commercial Work, tho largest;one being used
for copying-ink work almost exclusively. All of our presses have autoinuth.unting?
machines which register tho sheets as they aro printed, leaving no chance for errors 11
count. A great many blanks are put up in pads of titty or one huu<li<d; an
Httondnnt watches the indicator, and when the tlgureli show iifty or a multiple, a
board is laid between the sheet*."
"No, tho operator does nothing but cut paper all the time. See. he must cul
a lot of it; wo have a muchine solely to sharpen bis knives. It's autonome. '
sharpens a knife forty-eight inches long. It usid to cost a dollar when we sent a k ite
out to be sharpened; wo have a knifo to sharpen about every live hours. l?uite a
little saving, don't yon think?"
"Over there is the largo eloctric motor, and beyond is tho go3 engine, which we
keep as a ' reserve force.' "
"Suppose we take tho elevator, now, to the top floor."
" No, the largo motor runs tho elevator, too."
" How many.employees? About sixty, ull told."
" Very few people have an idea as to tho extent of our establishment until they ?
go through it; then 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 tho newspapor 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."
""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-matter."
"That is a Slumping Machine; for stamping in gold or bilvcr on tho covers of
Hooks, stamping Hibben Madges, etc."
"Yes, we have had it several years."
" Pore gold."
"Hilling Machines. Thh one is the kind in ordinary use. We brag on tho
other one: it takes a sheet lifi v Inches wido. We can rule a job on it that wo had
to send to Boston onco; couldn't get it ruled in Philadelphia."
"Just finished a Puy-iMI Sheet 19x48. Think of a sheet IS inches wide."
" Yes, it. had a printed hendintr. A largo machine in one department calls for
large machines in other departments. In this instance, the largo press would have
been of no use without the large ruling machine."
"This is a Hound-Cornering Machine; this n Sewing Mitchino that will stitch
through half an inch of paper, and make a stitch three-quurieis of an inch long, i;'
we wi.-ll it so; this a Punching Machine, und this an EyelCtting Machine, for eyelets
like you see in Calendars, Card Price-Lists, etc."
" Folding Machine?folds eigh*., twelve, sixteen, twenty-four, or thirty-two
pages; almost any size page."
"Then, hero'n a Wire Stitching Machine, a double-header?stitches on two
different kinds of work at the sumo time. One maybe an eight-page pamphlet and
ilia other mnv bo as thick as the Century or Harper's Mnyminc. You've noticed the
wire staples that bind them together. Same kind of machine; takes tho steel win
from a rpool, cuts it to an adjustable length, forms it into a staple, drives it through
the hook-, and clinches it ?120 sta| los oh each side a minute: taster than an operator
can handle the work. Then tho cover.-, are parted or glued on afterward."
"Oh, yes, we bind all kinds of magazines."
"You can see the progress of n Ledger, .Journal, or ('ash Hook being made lo
order here. Eirst ruled, then the heading printed, then tho sheets inspected, folded,
sewed, and now the Leather Minding being put on. Lots of people think we buy
the covers already made, but wo do u all ourselves."
" Didn't know wo bad an Kngruvlng Department?"
?'Any and every kind, from thu design for a Catalogue Cover, or i. Letter
Heading, to cutting a wood type."
" Not much to be seen in that roomy The "collating " or " gathering of the
"forms" or ''signatures" of a pamphlet or hook is dene liiere. Thu forma are
arranged in sequence on the tables and girl* walk around the tables and gather one of
each form until tho complete book is gathered. Thun it is ready for the stitcher.
Sometimes u dozen girls are walking around the table?, collating, at one time."
"A Paging Machine, an old-stylo Perforating Machine?but I forgot to show
vou a modern Perforator, one with live timos thu capacity of this one : wo'll see thai
liefere we go down stairs, Surplus stock of envelopes, material for binding, etc."
"On this floor we do all the typo-setting and proof-reading?wu pay particular
attention to our proof-reading, and you have no idoa of tint care that a painstaking
proof-reader exercises. We recently had a University mm. to write us that our proof
Fending was equal or better than they had been getting in Philadelphia."
" Doesn't matter?wo sometimes have German, Latin, Greek, and Hebrew.
Knglish, "as she is spoke," or rather written, uiukes it interesting to a degree. Ol
course, wo have all too Dictionaries at our Hngsis'onds: Webster, the Standard,
" Yes, customers uso different Standards. We have just finished a Catalogue l<>r
a School that neos Worcester, and, of course, we had to conform to Worcester ii. ?mr
spelling throughout the Catalogue."
"Other reference books like the Encyclopedia Britannica, Applotnn's, National,
various Atlases, Dictionaries of Foreign Languages, Algebraical Works, thu Hoe;*,
Novelists, Philosophers, etc., must be at band, also. You would b? surprised at the
familiar quotations that are misquoted. We verily and compare whenever there is
doubt. Tliis is the duty of tho proof-reader and hi? assutaiit."
"Here uro hundreds of pages of standing typo?price-lists, railroad turifL, and
items that uro changed slightly und printed frequently."
" Yes, enough capital in standing typo to equip a good-sized prii g office."
"These cabinets contain 'sorts,' or evtru quantities of various iul'.rs, figures, or
signs that may bo needed any moment. Probably a ton that has neve: been Used."
" For instance, a Price-List may be ordered, nnd it will bo full of unusual
measurements (128 T3y,T X 10 f|), -signs (10? :W 47"), reference marks (* t 11 ii)<
or may require a very large quantity of tome particular ligure. An ordinary font of
typo contains only u limited number of such characters, so wo prepare tor the-se prob?
able demands ns our judgment suggests. Wu printed a job a few days ago thai
required nearly three thousand (:;,UO0) parenthesis ^ ) marks. Tho number that
usually accompanies tho quantity of typo necessary to set up such a job as a whole,
would bo about twenty-live ; this shows thu necessity for 'sorts.' "
"Wo have in these cabinets nearly ten thousaud engravings o ?11 kinds all
catalogued, numbered, and in their proper pluces. We can ?isuall) lind any one
desired in live minutes."
"The Stereotyping and Rubber Stamp Departments?it's rather warm in there
Well, you enn take a look at that another tune."
" About 100?."
"Taking too much of my time? No, this is my business. If you are interested
you will be telling somo of your friends, and that's just what we want."
"Down to the stock-room, next."
" Keeps one man busy all tho time getting out stock for the presses, etc."
"Wuit a moment, bore's the Hnilroad Ticket Printing Machine. Prints and
numbers them at one operation. Operutors uro hold 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 a year."
"There's another machine?for printing long runs on envelopes?that's as fust no
tho Ticket Machine."
" Nearly ten thousand an hour."
" Automatically, of courae." *
" Here's the stock-room."
" A great many of our papers are innde to order: our Stone Bond, and Crystal
Spring Brands?you've noticed the water-marks? "
" Five or ten tons at one time is not an unusual order for this kind_to your left. '
" Why, tho presses in the adjoining room alone will u*e 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 the number of tho job. This mini her indicates an envelope containing your
original copy of the job, the proof, tho '? O. K." sheet, and a completed copy." The
recotd will also show who received the order, whether by letter, 'phoiij, or personally,
the date stock was gotten out, tho quantity, then the name? of tho various oper?
ators in the several departments wlio 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, tho receipt horn the customer showing that it was
received in good order."
"Detail? yes, inlinitc; but each job has its peculiarities that make it different
from its companion that is being handled at the. same time, requiring the exercise of
different degrees of knowledge, experience, or experiness?so there is no daiij-cr of
"No. no! we have orders from all over Virginia, West Virginia, North Carolina.
Tennessee, etc., and at this moment we are Oiling an order for ten thousand Cata?

HIS LAUGH HIS FORTUNE.
It Won Ulm Friends nn<l Fortune and
Disconcerted Ilia Knemlea.
"Ever hoar of a man who mndo a for
tuno out of his lnugbf" said a guest of tho
St. Churloa to a Now Orleans Times-Dem?
ocrat reporter as ho looked over tho reg?
ister. "I have beard of girls whoso faces
wero their fortunes, but I knew n man
whoso laugh was positively his fortune.
That name?Sam Ii. Adams?on tho reg?
ister there reminds mo of a man who imidu
a fortnno out of bis laugh. His name was
.lohn D. Adams, and ho was tho father of
Sam, the gentleman registered thero.
John D. Adams was a typical steam boat?
man of Arkansas and in addition to bis
Steambouting was a planter of oxtonsivo
interests and was connected with Other
business enterprises. Ho was tho first man
to run a steamboat up tho Arkansas river,
.Mid his name In that state today is a syno?
nym for goniality, courage and business
success. Ho was very successful, and his
friends used toattribnto his success to hiR
wondrous In ugh. It was not boisterous,
yet loud, and was so musical and joHly
that ono could imagine old Kris Kringlo
was personified In him. Other river men
would say that his laugh gut him all the
government mail contracts. Ho would go
to Washington, get acquainted with the
man who had charge of tho contracts, and
he, like nil of Adams' new acquaintances,
would soon como under tho infection of
his magnetic laugh and form a genuine
admiration for the grizzled old stoumboat?
man. Ho was known at tho hotel by every?
body and wus pointed out for years by a
nogro porter to whom be onco gavo a $6
go Id pi ecu as a tip in a lit of jollification
over tho closing of a big contract In his
"Amazing tales wero fold of bis courage
and bis steamboat experiences. On one
occasion, when an uccldont happened to
his boat and the passengers became panic
stricken, ho calmed then; as if by mugta
by calling them children and laughing at
their fear, his famous laugh 'compelling
confidence and mirth by its very melody
and jollity. Ho oven used his laugh when
very much angered, but It was of a differ?
ent character, and death lurked behind it.
In a steamboat quarrel with three desper?
adoes onco ho denounced them with a
laughing accompaniment, a cynical, chill?
ing, dangerous kind of laugh, his eyes
glitt-jring like a snake's and his forefinger
an h'.s revolver, ready to dash out tho life
of tho first ono who miulo a move. One of
tho desperadoes said afterward, in speak
>ig of tho occurrence, thut he never felt so
queer before in his life. Ho said he felt
ns though the very marrow in bis bones
was being frozen."
Tho Finest southern Tobacco.
The leaves of the bright tobacco aro thin
and small veined. To bo of good quality
thoy must possess good hotly and texture
as well as uniform and attractive color,
and therefore high manuring with nitrog?
enous fertilizers, which latter tend to
produce rank growth and give tho plants a
dark or red hue, should hu avoided. Much
of tho highest grades of bright tobacco
producod in the famous North Carolina
and Virginia gold loaf district is grown
jpon poor land, mid it is tho prevailing
belluf in that district that tho superb col?
or, silky toxturu und other merits of tho
>eBt produets tiro due to this poverty of
the soil. This, however, is doubtloss an
extremo view, for a soil must hnvu suili
cicnt fertility to produce a good sized leaf
of good body, which, if of tho desired col?
or, brings a higher price than small ones.
Tho superiority of tho products of those
bright tobacco lauds is duo largely to their
lightness and porosity, which nro con?
ducive to a quicker warming of tho soil in
spring and freer aeration of tho roots of
tho plants and consequently to ourlier and
morn rapid growth and quicker maturity,
in South Carolina such soils are excellent
for early vegetables and aro now taking
t> front rank in tho production of tho finest
