Workings of a Press Clipping Bureau. It has come to be a necesaity that any one whose name ever appears in a newspaper must be a subscrlber to prtss clippings, stiU there are few who ?jnderstand anythlng about the work? ings of such a bureau. People take *>russ clippings because ln no otner way can they learn how many papers throughout the country prlnt storles concerning them. They must have a bureau to read every paper published. Then r-vcry line concerning them roaches their hands. There are some forty press clipping bureaus ir. the Unlted States, but he tore beconiing a subscrlber one should ui.derstanci just what bureau to deal Wlth. Thls is necessary, because in or? der to read a.OUO differenl publlcallons a bureau must have a large area of working space and- einploy many peo? ple. Somo bureaus work ln one room with three and"~four workers. The largest bureau ln the world, that is the Burrello Press Clipping Bureau in New York, roads every publlcatlon Issued, has 2,000 square feet of space, and has loO workers. There aro dozens of departmenta in the Burrello Bureau, but the one spoc tncular feature is the work of those who actually read tho papers. Thestf rt-aders slt before an incllned desk on which tho paper rests. The reader scans the column. her pencll following tlie lines wlth lightnlng-like rapidity. Tho moment sho sces the name of a cltcnt, down goes the pepcil and a mark ls put under the name. The niar velous part is, that the reader must boar in mind something like 60,000 names. It ta a feat of meinory that al tnost passes human understandlng, and k ls done day ln and day out. The reader's mind is kept actlve on these subjects ln a daily school of Inatruc tlon. For an hour each day tho read ers sit allently before tholr desks while a forewoman takes up a list of cus tomers, and one by ono oalls off tho names nnd oxplalns tholr wants. It tnkea ten .lays, an hour pach day, to complete tho list. On the elnventh day tho formvoinan boglns over ngain. So the routlho goes on, weok ut and week out. Any one who hasn't a press Rlipplng bureau or nny one who hasn't the larg? est In tho world, should write n note addressJd simply "Burrelle, New York Clty," which wlll put them ln immo dinte touch wlth every paper published.

Mr. Withers was in good splrlts, and relterated that he had uo dispositio.n to klck when his party had acted upon nny important matter. " He and Coi. W. W.
