In announcing the rules governing the contest, the authorized com mittee appointed by the assooiation to take charge of the same, isned a ciroular con taining the folliowing information: : "S. PAUL, Mlnn,, July 8.-The American Newspaper Publishers' asseoolation, at its .last annual meeting in New York City, on the 12th day of February, 1891, sadopted a resolution appointing a committee of three 'to invite all manufacturers of devices for machine composition to a test of their re speetive machines, before such committee, for the-purpose of determining, on behalf of this assocition, which machine is eapa ble of producing the best practical results under ordinary newspaper conditions in well managed offices.' "President. Scott thereupon appointed Frederick Driscoll, of the Mt. Paul Pioneer Press: W. J. Richards, of the Indianapo lis News, and B. H. Wood, of the Boston Herald, as such committee, all of whom .ac cepted and entered upon their duties. 'This committee fully interchanged views, and adopted ruled to govern the con test. The deep interest manifested by all the publishers of the assoo0ation in this tournament warrants the statement that the proprietors of any machine capable of doing good work by type or cast line com poition,-cannot nfford to be absent from this test, as it will undoubtedly prove to be a golden opportunity, not alone for trial before the committee, but for convenient exhibition to the publishers of the United States." The foremen selected to superintend the mechanical features of the contest were: Frank B. Moore, St. Paul Pioneer Press; William qtinni, Boston Herald; E. H. Per kins, Indianapolis News; Frank H. Ehlen, Chioago Herald. The assistants of these men were: Hugh T. Fisher, printer;- Will ism F. Carroll, proof-reader; Frank Fergu son copy-holder; James E. Johnson, copy cutler; and James H. Thurston, setter of hands. There were four different maohines in the contest. These were the Mergenthaler lin otype, with W. H. Rand representative; Frank Hnsoall, operator; Charles Letach, machinist. The St. John tynobar, with R. H. St. John, representative; E. A. Schaffer, operator, and W. B. Carter, assistant. The Rogers typograph, with J. .R Roers, in ventor; Ford Starring, secretary of tee company manufacturing same, and A. V. Phister, operator. The McMillan typeset tor and distributor, with J. L. McMillan, inventor. E. McClellan, representative; George W. Fitch. operator; Henry Schmulz, justifier, and H. C. Brownell, distributor. The last-named machine is the only real typesetter among the four. Two of the others are type-line castitg machines, using molten metal, while the St. John typobar of Cleveland, casts a line of type from cold metal. All of the machines work antomat ically, and they are certainly wonders of human skill in mechanism. The McMillan machine was invented by J. L. MgMillan, of Ilion, N. Y., in 1888. The first machine to leave the works was sent to the office of the Utica Morning Herald in 1885. An important feature of the type setting machine is that the keyboard is an exact reproduction of the Remington type writer an advantage that can be en joyed by no other company. Owing to the small numberjof keys used and the conse quent conciseness of the keyboard, opera tore acquire skill in much less time than is required to learn large keyboards. Rem ington stenographers readily adapt them selves to the machine. The forty keys of the board communicate with the eighty characters in precisely the same manner as a typewriter. The typesetting machine is quite com pact, the parts are all accessible, the mo tions seem positive and safe, the pressure of the keys very easy, approximating a typewriter.in this respect. The line of set up matter is directly in front of the oper ator, and he may see every letter take its place. add any character not in the ma chine, or make a correction when wrong keys are struck. For daily newspaper work the machines are made with the justifying attachment fastened to the frame and the type is justified as fast as set up, but for book, magazine. and periodical work not iequiring special dispatch a repafate usti fying machine is provided. On this latter class the orerator of the typegetting ma chine sets the matter into a "storage gal ley," which is provided with a number of walls about twenty-eight inches in length which serve to separate the lines. A. soon nas a galley is filled it is removed and a fresh one put on the maohinb. !Ther.dlled galley is then proved, corrected, and taken to the justifyina machine, which feeds the long line automatically to the spacer, who justifies it into lines of the required length. The distributing machine occupies per haps a little more room than two ordinary type frames. It distributes from 10,000 to 25,000 ems per hour, owing to the ss;e of the type. The distributor consists of a rotaty dise which has eighty-five inside distributing radical channels. The type is distributed by means of nicks on ie side, directly into removable brass chan nels and is already for use on the type setting machines. Te ,waltda-that make the combination for-t e nie· s are small rolls at the mouths of the outside or re ceiving channels. The rolls, like the out side and inside sectors, are of hardened steel. The inside bbannisle ar straglht grooves in which thbftbb tiPsi pIlaced with a follower and spring t hold the type against the rolls or was by which the type passes into the receivina ohannels. It is lalmed that the MoMillan machine will save about one-balf of the pritent boat pg composition.

A HAUNI ED WHITE OAK, Under Its Branehes Twelve Men Weare Shot to Death. Near New Holland, Ga., there is a little wamp near the road. At its edge stands a Lcrge white oak tree. Years ago this spot was often pointed out as the scene of the murder of twelve men, and the place bore the reputation of being haunted, It was maid the rattling of chains and groans and ravers tcfo mercy conuld be distinctly heard Spassers-by. No one ever stopped to in vestigate, as we can testify from personal experience, ha.ing heard the groans some lourteen year ago, and having also done some of the most distinguished traveling in ll our eventful cereer. Blutl to the story: Howard Thompson was a witness to the killing, which occurred in 188, he being about 10 years old at the time. The killing was done by Bob and Ben Jordan, of Pickens county, and the murdered men erre deserters who had been arrested in Gilmer county. While the Jordan boys were in the Con federate army a crowd of deserters visited the house of their father, assaulted their sister and the wife of Bob Jordan, and car ried their father, who was about 70 years old, through the mountains a ditance of sixtymiles, and subjected him to many hocking cruelties. Then the Jordn boys returned home and bean their record of killing. Every man known to be a deserter or a skulker became a victim of their un erring rifes. Bob kept a list'of the names and dates in a small book. Ha was pur sued one day, and in rossing a river lost his book. It contained 125 names. After that he kept no record. This was before the killing near Gaineeville. Bob and Ben Jordan -became reoruiting offlloer and arrested twenty-six men in Qlmen ounty.and started with them~to the front. On the way two escaped and twenty four were lodged in Gainesville jail. Next morning the Jordans picked out twelve whom they had the best reason to believe had been implicated in the outrages upon their family, and chained them together and marched them to this white oak tree onthe New Holland road. They stood them up in a ow,. and Bob Jordan marched slowly along thfline with a large pistol and shot them with his own hand one at a time. Some fell on their knees and prayed, while others looked their slayer straight in the face and died with an oath on their lips. Among the number was a fragile boy, about fifteen, who was chained to a very large The boy was shot first, and the man sup ported him in a standing posture until he himself was shot, when they fell to the ground together. Those twelve men were hastily buried in a trench dug upon the spot, but after the war they were exhumed by the federal authorities and removed to the National cemetery at Chattanooga. After the war Bob Jordan was shot to death in Florida, by a weak, sickly young man, upon whom he .was imposing. Ben was stabbed to death in a barroom in Texas. The soot where the killing occurred is now in cunltivation, but the old tree still re. mains.

We are rieved to se stdente goins out from sebeol aflter few weeks' coOrse in some busi ne oollege (our own not exoepted), only half sited to perform the ordinary duties of businees life, It is treuleat we can furnish the finsehing touchse in the science of accounts to, and make a firet-cla accountant out of a person who has had to or three years' experience in business for himself or his employer, in three months' time, for he realises what his deficiencies are and what principles must ecsesrily be well Impressed on his mind; but we cannot make a first-class book keeper out of a student who has had no previous knowledge of actual business in less than six months. No school can conscientiously advertise to omplete acsur in either shorthand or boohl keeping in less time, for neither science can be completed in less time, to say nothing of other branches absolutely necessary to the qualificoatiton of a first-clue stenographer or beokkeeper. Stenoente often come to us, having been promised a situation by some business man to qualify for one position, as if his whole suce as depended on that one position. He asks as to fit him for that position in the short time of one month or six weekn. He performs hie duties to the satis fetion aof his employer, perhaps, but when he comes to cope with a firitolas bookkeeper or steoegrapher, alas! he is "left," to use the school boyexpresaion. A sad experience teaches many that it is better to be fully competent, though it cost more, than partillly fitted, to cope with an other. Now we eant students to come for a term of six months, in which time we guarantee to give them a complete course, if they make gool use of th:ir time. The theory of bookkeeping will consume about faour months, taking into consid eration the other necessary branches. The other two months will be given to business practice. We mean to go further than edrertise a business practice deparlment. We shall haveit in our school and get out of it the best results possible. We have the best room for this department in Helene. realising that many students are not able to lay out much money in an education, we shall Sreduce tuiton for six months from 150 to $40. SThis reduction will, we think, be appreciated by many students who are Economis in their ex Wpenditure of money. The reduction will take effect at once, and continue until Oct. 00, 1891. Although the Montana Business College has done but little advertising, except through its I student, it has bern well patronized, as student and others friendly to its existence are aware. This can be accounted for only in the faet that it awas founded by men of integrity and moral worth, and I opt alive on principles of true merit its pr, sent manager hopes to make it the ideal business college of Monulana. It takes time to build up a school that will meet thebs approval of a. telligent people, such as we have in Men We solicit the hearty cooperation of all that have an interest in such an institution; also in vite you to rome to Electrio kulding, corner Sixth and 'ark avenues, and learn something of the management and concrne of study.
