The funeral of Mr. Mlchael Stein,
who died Thursday morning at his
home on Balnhridgo Street, took plnce
yesterday evenlng from tho Flrst Pros
Workings of a Press
Clipping Bureau.
ll has come to be a necesslty that
any one whoso namo ever appears ln
a newspaper must be a subscrlber to
press clippings, stlll thore ai'o lew who
uuderstand anything about the work
ings of such a bureau. People take
press clippings because ln no oitier way
uan they learn how many papers
throughoui the country prlnt stories
concernlng them. They must have a
bureau tn read every paper publlshed.
Then every llne concernlng them
reaches their hands.
There nre some forty press clipping
bureaus ln tho United States, but be?
fore becomlng n subscrlber ono should
understand jusi what bureau to deal
wlth. Thls ls necessary, because in or?
der to reitcl 5,000 different publlcatlons
a bureau niuat have a largo area of
working space and employ many peo?
ple Somo bureaus work in one room
wlth three and four workers. The
largest bureau ln the world, that ls tho
Burrellq Press Clipping Bureau ln New
Vnrk, road3 every publlcatlon issued,
has 2,000 squaro feet of space, and hus
luO workers.
There aro -dor.ens of depnrtments In
thi- Burrellf. Bureau, but the one spec
tacular feature is the work of those
who actually read tho papers. Theso
readers slt before an incllnod desk on
whlch the paper rests. The reader
Beans the column, her pencll following
the lines wllh llghtnlng-llko rapidlty.
The moment she sees tlio name of a
clicnt, down goes the pencll and a
mnrk is put under the name. The mar
veious part ls, that the reader must
bear in mlnd something llko 60,000
names. lt Is a feat of memory that al
inost passes human understnndlng, and
*t Is done day In and day out. The
fi-ader's mlnd ls kept actlvo on these
