B7 assoeia'ed Press. NEW YORK, August 14.—Invention of a "sweet tempered’’ typewriter was announced today by Joseph Spiel Vogel of Newark, N. J. No matter how angry you are when you use it, the machine refuses to get riled. Punch the keys as hard as vou will. , but the typewriter keeps putting the letters down on the paper at the same even-tempered, undisturbed pace. It taps each letter so that every word is as black as tbe next one. It pushes the “I” key more lightly than the I "W.” for if the two fell with equal weight, the "I" would be darker than ; the ' W.” The invention prints type, similar >o that of a printing press. Instead of giving each letter the ! same amount of space, as is the case ! on conventional typewriter keys, the ! device with the unruffled temper varies the space to suit the sice of the letters, as in standard type. It prims bold-face type when the proper control is adjusted, i A complete newspaper, except for headlines, could be produced on the typewriter. Spiel Vogel said, for it au j tomatically spaces the type to bring each line out even at the right as well as at the left margin. 20 RAIL UNIONS CONFER | Plan to Make Job Insurance | Schemes Uniform Is Topic. i CHICAGO.
