One of tho vow*, tha writor rnndo when ho was " dovil " in a

power. And tho vow has been kept. Como and seo.
We l)o Not Believe
Thero is another city in tho State which sends 6uch a small propor?
tion of its orders for printing and blank books away to our Northern
friends as Koanoko. All honor to our bankers and business men;
that is?most all of it. "Wo must rcsnrvo a little, as tins is cur
" own country."
We Print Anything
That can bo desired or devised from movablo typo, paper and ink?
and brains. Brains aro just as important in our work as paper or ink
or typo. It is tho combination that tells. "Wo do not mean to bo
egotistical at all; but combining these things to bring forth a harmo?
nious result has besn our study-~und wo do claim to know our
ousineas ng'nt thoroughly.
All logether
One o( the things which hag contributed largely li) tho success cf
our establishment is tho systematic working " together" ot all our
forces in all departments. Thi3 has reduced
to a minimum tho "lost motion" 'which is
usually to bo found in largo industries. II

wasted daily by each of our employes would mean tho interest on
$1<VM0 a yoar. In thoso days of close margins each moment of
tfc\nj must bo productive.
Quite Recently, Too
Tho times aro hard, money tight, everything handled econom?
ically?but it cannot possibly slay that way. So wo are pushing
("not shoving") ahead, just as though good times were upon us.
"Wo cannot aflord to hig behind or worry ; but in times of pcaco wo
aro preparing for war. And when it conies wo will have an cstnb
tssnmunt mat can tano euro 01 anytntng mat comes?nnd thinga Chcl

largest lots oi now typo ever given at ono timo in Virginia.
Our Establishment
Is just opposite and overlooking tho lawn of Hotel ltoanoke, (ono ol
tho finest hotels in tho State,) which gives us a magnificent, bright,
refreshing view st all times. Our business offico and press-room aro
on the ground floor (along with our price-s). Each floor and depart?
ment is connected with tho offico by Klectric Hells, Speaking Tubes,
and Elevators ; and all departments aro bountifully supplied with all
kinds of Labor and Timo Saving Appliances.
In Our Press-Room
Can bo seen tho rapid, diminutive and monster cylinder presses
including tho famous "Promise Keeper," turning out thousands upon
thousands of sheets ovory day. Our largest and best paper cutting
machine, tho automatic cutting knifo sharp
oner, and tahleting appurtenances aro on
this floor. Tho wonderful and poworfvl
electric motor, which propels tho machines
oil all three floors, is also on this floor. Ovor
in ono corner, hardly noticeable, is kept in
readiness, as a supplementary power, an
improved Gas Engine, to be attached nt
momentary notice, in case of accident to the
electric, motor, or lor other causes. This precludes tho possibility of
a "holo" on tho power question.
On the Second Floor
A long row of small presses, used for cards, envelopes, statements,
noto heads, tickets and small work. Horo, also, is probably tho most
wonderful picco of mechanism in our establishment?tho Railroad
Ticket Printing Machine. Think of it tho next timo you purchase
your ticket. Secured behind iron bars and douhlo locks, it at once
suggests government bonds, with all theso safeguards.
Further Along
On this floor is tho type-setting department, ".hero expert minds and
lingers think nnd act rapidly and correctly, interpreting at times hand?
writing that would make Iloraco Greeley turn green with envy.
Largo, extra largo fonts of type permit tho handling of very largo
orders in a most satisfactory and expeditious manner. Our forco in
this department can set up about as many pages in a day as a man
car read. A plentiful supply of Algebraical, Astronomical, Geometri?
cal signs and characters, acconte letters, and "odd sorts" onahlo us
tc handle difficult and intricate work in special lines.
On the Top Floor
Is our Blank Book Manufactory, ruling raachions, including on
which is probably the largest south of Philadelphia; our various wiro
stitchers, which will tako wire from a spool, cut it tho proper length,
shape it, and drivo through n book three-fourths of inch thick, or
ono not so thick, V20 a minute; thon our paging and numbering
machines, board and paper cutters, book presses, which exert a
pressure of twenty tons or more, perforating, punching and eyeleting
machines, and tho engraving department?which latter is an innova?
tion for this section.
And Our Stock-Room!
If some of our friends who usually buy a quiro or so of paper at a
time, could look in upon this department, they would not ceu-o won?
dering for days. Wo do not exaggerate a particle when wo say you
You say: "What, ten tons of ono kind of paper in a town liko
Koanoke?" That's what wo said. Como and see. And, besides,
hundreds of other kinds of plain, fancy and unique; there are stacks
of card-board, of a kind, as high as a mar., and ho need not bo a
Lilliputian, either.
What Can We Not Do
With such facilities? A card, a circular, noto bead, envelopo, pair,
phlet, price list, catalogue, book, railroad rate sheet or timo table, a
ruled blank or a 1000-page ledger, on any or all, WO assuro our
friends wo aro AT HOME, from .January 1st to December Hist.

A Schoolmate of tlie President Tells of
ills Early Life.
Mr. George H. Ycuowino contributes
:i pupcr on "ThoBirthplucoof Lincoln"
to St. Nicholas. Air. Ycuowino quotes
tho following from nil old man named
Austin Golluhcr, who went to school
with tho emancipator: "Lincoln was un
onusnally bright boy, und he made good
progress in his books?better than ut?
most any one else in school?und he
studied very hard, although he was
young. Ho would get spice wood bushes
und hack them up on u log and put u
few of them in the fire ut n time to
make a light for him to read his books
by. It did not make :i very good light,
but it was all ho had ut night. Young
Lincoln was never good looking. Ho
was angular and awkward. His mother
was a rather slim woman of medium
height. Tom Lincoln, his father, was
toll. Ahe w::s not very much like him,
for Tom Lincoln hud n fuller faco and
was of n heavier build. "
In answer to a question ns to Lin?
coln's brothers or sisters, the old man
brightened up und said: "Oh, yes, he
hud u sister. Her namo was Sully, und
sho was about my age. That was one
reason why I thought so much of Abe.
But when the Lincolns moved to In?
diana I did not say goodby to cither of
"I next heard of Lincoln several
years afterward. It was said that ho
would make rails during tho summer
und thus earn money to go to school.
Then I heard no more of Lincoln until
he was nominated for president, I told
the boys that no matter what happened
I was going to vote for Abo. I said I
was going to vote for him if it wius tho
last act of my life, because I had played
with him when u hoy, and I was glad
ho had gone up in the world, nnd I did
vote for him!" said the old man.
Not Fall Vet.
The world is by no means full up yet.
Queensland has still an urea of 480,000,
OOU acres to a population of about 4C0,
(itio people. Its government has lately
bi en offering more tempting conditions
to settlers, who may now hold ordinary
laud for 20 years at u rental of threepence
per acre, while '"scrub land" may bo se?
lected in areas up to 10,000 acres nnd held
for o<? years ;it an average rental per
acre of very much less than a penny.
This ought to be good news for many
struggling fora Intro living in the moth?

ditions in many portions of tho colony
uro trying, but so they ore in western
Australia, which at the present time is
adding 750 per week to its population,
