o".. •Slip's-
On Saturday the REVIEW and the Bul
letin each purchased Simplex tpye setting
machines. The new departure will cost
each office about $1800.00, but the results
should be improved news service and a re
duction of running expenses on the part of
both papers. The REVIEW cannot set
much more type than it has been setting,
for during the past few months it has set
nearly all the type the paper could hold.
We will be able, however, to set the type
more quickly and economically and to
handle in better shape the rush of corre
spondence and local news that always
comes just prior to publication. Last
week, for instance, we were compelled to
omit an excellent correpondence from
Schleswig. The letter came too late, and
it was a question of omitting important
local news, delayiug the paper a day or
leaving out the Schleswig letter. With
machine composition all such matter can
be quickly handled and the REVIEW will
be able to give its news fresher and better
than ever.
'Another advantage .which our readers
will appreciate will be that the REVIEW
will be printed in brand new type through
out. We have selected a large-faced,
easily read type, and with our brand new
press, and using the best print paper, the
REVIEW will.be a- thing of beauty.
The addition of the tpye-setting machine
makes the REVIEW plant a model in every
respect. When our new building js com.
pleted and the machine installed we hope
every reader of the paper will call and see
the plant in operation.
The REVIEW printing plant will be all
on one floor occupying the basement of
our new 40x60 building. It will have

Certainly the business men of Denison
cannot complain that their newspapers are
not keeping abreast of the times and are
not representative of the town and its best
interests. On the other hand it is the
splendid support of home merchants which
I enableB the papers to make these improve
ments and thus to secure the large sub
scription lists they now have Again it is
the co-operation of live merchants and
live newspapers that has held Denison
steadily to the front and made it the only
town in western Iowa thaa has never
known a back set. We are proud of our
county, our city and our business men and
we want them to be proud of the REVIEW.
If they will bear it in mind to say as many
good words for us as we do for them it
will help wonderfully, and everything that
that helps the papers of Denison, that ex"
tends their influence and widens their cir
culation helps every business man.
There is ample rcom for two good
papers in Denison. Both for business and
political reasons they will always exist
For our part we are glad to note that the
Bulletin is also making progress. We
welcome the competition, it puts us upon
our mettle, and makes Denison sure of
two first-class English papers.

the ball of the eye and narrowly missing

Court Sustains Motion of De-
in Gibson Case.

Damage Case
Jury»by Judge Powers
on Which Notable
is Taken From the
.4 r'/
S» «g£. jV
The case of Francis Gibson vs the City
of Denison occupied the attention of the
court and jury from Wednesday until Sat
urday morning. The plaintiff claimed
$5000.00 damages from the city on account
of injuries received by falling on a defect
ive sidewalk near the Heiden property on
Sweet street south of the Chicago & North
Western Railway tracks, on November
8th, 1904. The city denied liability on
the grounds, 1st that the walk, if defect
ive, had not been in that condition such a
length of time as to charge the city with
constructive notice, and that the city had
no actual notice and 2nd, that the plain
tiff was guilty of contributory negligence
in passing over the walk when he knew of
its unsafe and dangerous condition. The
plaintiff testified that he knew that the
sidewalk was unsafe when he went upon
it, and had known of it$ unsafe condition
for a long time, and that he knew it was
dangerous to go upon it, but said that in
passing ever it he walked in the middle of
it, believing that he could cross it in safe
ty. The evidence showed that this walk
was one hundred and sixty-five feet in
length and that the plaintiff in going to
and from the city could have travelled the
highway which had been graded up and
had cinders placed upon.it to make it
available for the people living on the
south side of the track to travel on in go
ing from their homes to and from the city,
and that the plaintiff knew of this high
way and had used it. At the conclusion
of the evidence the defendant made a mo
tion to take the case from the jury on the
grounds that the plaintiff was guilty of
contributory negligence in going upon the
walk when he knew of its unsafe and dan
gerous condition, especially in vfewof"the
fact that another and safe way of travel
had been provided. The court sustained
the motion and a verdict was rendered for
the defendant. P. W. Harding and J. F.
Glenn appeared for the plaintiff and Con-

plausible reconciliation between its recent

respect to the Chicago street railways and
the following statement made by ex-mayor

of democrats in good standing: "'Mayor
