patent No. 3 «.T 9 I, dated Nov. 2 d,
1809 . gràhliî to John Strange But
ler, for " Improvement in Copy
Holder»," arrived here by Friday's
matt.
Tlie Invention has for Its object a •
»impie ar.d Convenient copy li .'dergj
designed for compositor« an ! copy
1 st*. The < ,mpo"ifors' bold, f fs> so '
constructed and arranged ■ to ho ;
placed between the upper and lower ;
occupying but little
ivpccusett,
space, and without covering up any j
T the type-boxes as is the case when 1
the ropy is sj revl upon the upper
c«r in tho ordinary way. The copy
in Ho bolder is always in one po«l
tion and the line being set always
marked by a steel wire, which lays
»cross the face of (he copy as a
guide, which prevents (he eomposib
or from tod ,tr hi-da while e en
owing. Th" holder is a small met
nlic or h if 1 rubber box of peculiar 1
rhape, which cannot well be de
scribed without a cut to represent ;
it. The 1 ow<t pm is narrow Of
spout shaped to go between the
c»s's, • small notch in (h upper
edge of tho lower case, being neecs
, r ,
tor that purpose. There ar« j
two compartments or pa-ages in
the box, front and rear, the nnper
par* f the front being open and a |
p- ..in pinto , »kin:* ih ■ pi tee of the ;
Ur, this pinto Ih« j
portion of the copy bei. g uMd is
exposed, while the upper end pusses !
between tw, rollers padded with
indin rubber. The rollers are pfv- 1

it on the right hand »ido, by which j

between the rollers the copy pews ;

position by keeping the eye of the
compositor directed to one place in
ste id of wandering up and down
the ease in search of the right line
<jf the copy, by being out of the
way instead of covering up the
boxes of the upper case, and by
disposing of the copy alter it has
been »el instead of having to hang
it on a dead Imok. The machine is
uo simple in its conslruutioa that it
will always keep in order and does
away with so many little annoyances
and inconvenience» in composdltm I
that it appear» to be an indispensa- j
ble necessity on every printer'« ca«e.
The ladder for copyists, recorders,
ulerks, attorneys, copvcrs of tnvoio- i
es, etc., etc., is simpler in construe- |
tion, amt consists only of an up-1
right stand without the apart
ments. The matter to be copied is
placed between the rollers, as in tbe |

j
}
former case, exposing to the eye the
portion being copied, with the guide
to mark the lines, and deliver» tho
instrument, when finished,on the ta-i
ble behind the holder. Those who I
have done much or this kind of work j
will appredete the eonveuienee of
always being able to catch at a |
glance the right line without having '
to read and search for the last word !
written. This machine has also been I
in MW here in the Sheriff '» oOlce a I,
found to be a great convenience in
copying tax sale» and other papers,
The' Recorder has also found it use
ful in his department, although the
models used were very rude in con
struction and far from being true or
workmanlike.
