An Up-io-Date Printing Office.
One of the vows the writer mado whon he was "devil" in a
country printing office was, in effect, that if he ever ownod or man?
aged a printing establishment, it woidd bo kept clean, at least by
comparison. At that time he hardly felt the force .of the vow, for he
has learned after years of experience that .it is necessary immediately
after one "going over" to Btart at the beginning and go over it all
again. It never ends?just like a housekeeper's duties?but not like
the boy who sees no uso in washing his face because it will got
soiled again. But, a clean printing establishment is just as necessary
for the proper execution of work in our line as light and heat and
power. And the vow has been kept. Come and see. j
We Do Not Believe i
There is anothor city n the State which sends such a small propor?
tion of its ordore for printing and blank books away to our Northern
friends as lloanoko. All honor to our bankore and business men;
that is?most all of it. "Wo must resnrvo a little, as this is our

That can be desired or devised from movable typo, paper and ink?
and bruins. Brains r.ro just as important in our work as paper or ink
or type. It is tho combination that lolls. "We do not mean to be
egotistical at all; but combining these things to bring forth a harmo?
nious result has boon pur Btudy?and wo do claim to know our
j ouBinoss right thoroughly.
1 One ol the things which has contributed largely to the success of
our establishment is the systematic working "together ' of all our
forces in all departments. TlnB has reduced
to a minimum the "lost motion" which is
usually to be found in largo industries. II
a minute can bo saved here, anothor there,
it is done?an hour is gained?thus wo take
care of the fleeting moments. Five minutes
wasted daily by each of our employes would moan tho interest on
1510,000 a year. In these days of close margins each momont of
time must bo productive.

Tho times are hard, money tight, everything handled econom?
ically?but it cannot possibly stay that way. So wo aro pushing
("not shoving") ahead, just as though good time? were upon us.

fyn the Second Floor
A long row ot small presses, used for cards, envelopes, statements,
note heads, tickets and small work. Uore, also, is probably tho most
wonderful piece of mechanism in our establishment?tho Railroad
Ticket Printing Machine. Think of it tho next time you purchase
your ticket. Secured behind iron bnrs and double locks, it at once
suggests government bonds, with all theso safeguards.
On this floor is tho type-setting department, 'vhero expert minds and
flngore think and act rapidly and correctly, interpreting at times hand?
writing that would make Horace Greoloy turn green with envy.
Large, oxtra large fonts of typo permit the handling of very large
orders in a most satisfactory and expeditious manner. Our forco in
this department can 6ot up about as many pages in a day as a man
car read. A plentiful supply of Algebraical, Astronomical, Geometri?
cal signs and characters, accente letters, and "odd sorts" enable us
to handle difficult and intricate work in special lines.
On the Top Floor
Is our Blank Book Manufactory, ruling maeheins, including on
which is probably tho largest south of Philadelphia ; our various wiro
stitchers, which will .take wire from a spool, cut it tho proper length,
shape it. and drive through a book three-fourths of inch thick, or
ono not so thick, 1120 a minute; then o?r paging and numbering
machines, board and paper cutters, book presses, which exert a
pressure of twenty Urns or more, perforating, punching and eyeleting
machines, and tho engraving department?which latter is an innova?
tion for this section.
Is just opposite and overlooking tho lawn of Hotel Roanokc, (ono of
tho finest hotels in tho State,) waioh gives us a magnificent, bright,
refreshing view at all times. Our business office and press-room aro
on tho ground floor (along with our prices). Each floor and depart?
ment is connected with the olfico by Electric Bells, Speaking Tubes,
and Elevators; and all departments aro bountifully supplied with all
kinds of Labor and Timo Saving Appliances.
In Our Press-Room
Can be seen tho rapid, diminutive and monster cylinder prosses
including tho famous "Promiso Keeper," turning out thousands upon
thousands of sheets every day. Our largest and best paper cutting
machine, tho automatic cu'.ting knife sharp?
ener, and lableting appurtenances aro on
this floor. Tho wonderful and powerful
electric motor, which propels tho machines
on all three floors, is also on this floor. Over
in ono corner, hardly noticeable, is kept in
readiness, as a supplementary power, an
improved Gas Engine, to bo attached at
momentary notice, in case of accident to the
electric motor, or for other causes. This precludes the possibility of
a "hole" on tho powor question.
And Our Stock-Room!
If some of our friends who usually buy a quire or so of paper at a
time, could look in upon this department, they would not ceaso won?
dering for days. Wo do not exaggerate a particle when wo say you
can see A TON OP A KIND; yes, TEN TONS OF A KIND.
You say: "What, ten tons of ono kind of paper in a town liko
Roanokc?" That's what we snid. 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 man, and he need not be a

Romance has also entered into this do?
minion of Mammon and unrighteousness.
It has come in tho form of a pretty girl,
whom nobody knows, and yet whom every
one loves. Sho Is by no means a daughter
of tho gods, and is neither divinely tall
nor most divinely fair, but she Is a sturdy
beauty, who works her own claim and
who, tho gossips liavo it, is making
money. Not only does sho work her
claim, but on more tlmn one occasion has
defended it with revolvers. If there is any?
thing that the miner admires, it is a plucky
woman. If tlicro is imglit that ho really
loves, it is a pretty girl who seems not lo
be aware of bis existence. Pleasant,
bright, with u cheery word for all and a
word of affection for none, this girl of (ho

No man has (be slightest claim on An
nlo Graves, ns sho calls horsolf, and if any
man alleged that he did have,'it would
probably have a tendency to shorten his
existence Miss Annie is in many respects
like unto the typical westerner. About
tbo medium hoight, she is of good figure
anil enrries herself well. Her face is nei?
ther oval nor round. As one of the red
shlrted gentry said, "She's pretty?that's
nil." There is scarcely a night that in
somo ono of tho places where whisky and
cards rule there is not a quarrel over this
young woman between men who have per?
haps never spoken to her. Sho is the
daughter of the diggings, and there is no
man there who would not fight fur her at
tbo drop of tho hat.
As to her past history sho is silent. No
ono knows whonce sho came. The most
that anybody cun say Is thut sho. simply
upDonrcd here one moraine and from that
umo the uigRhigs- iiinnDitonw bove been

dangerous task for a pretty young womun
to go about nlono und apparently friend
loss, so for as clusc friends nro concerned,
but the man who would say on insulting
word to Annie Graves had better turn his
thoughts to the nest world, for that is the
direction in which he is suro to go.
Drew and the Man.
"American men, us a rule, are slov?
enly, untidy and careless," according to
a writer in the Now York Tribune. "A
oertain set, it is true, that lias leisure
aud nicuus, is well dressed and .thor?
oughly groomed, but with men of affairs
the distiuctiou betweeu Americans and
Englishmen is marked. Iu England tho
some class look, as a whole, decidedly
superior, and it is simply their olothes
and tho way they uro worn uud the gen?
erally scrubbed look of their fuces that
make the difference." It is useless to
ignore clothes as a powerful factor in
our lives. If tho tailor docs not actually
"make the man," he certainly has a
great deal to do with the semblance.
Ono of the great causes of uutidiness
amoug men who can afford to dress uud
appear well is tho lack of proper valet?
ing. In England overy well to do man
has his clothes taken earo of by a serv?
ant, aud if he has not his own espe?
cial man there is always somo cue in
the household whoso duty it is to seo
that his coats are well brushed, his
trousers cleaned and pressed, his shoes
polished, hats brushed and all the de?
tails which in this country?except tho
shoes, perhaps?a busy man is supposed
to seo to himself.
In America a man arrogates to him?
self a certain credit iu not caring for
clothes?"ho bus no time for such non?
sense"?the cousequenco being that
when conventionality demands n recog?
nition of its claims, it requires au espe?
cial effort, which is often apparent.
Many political and business men will
say that it is a distinct disadvantage to
dress well iu this country. Older mer?
chants regard a punctiliously dressed
clerk with disapproval. Publio men say
that their constituents distrust "frills,"
while u large majority simply do not
want to take tho trouble to dress, und
yet these very meu liko their women

cerned, while they themselves wear
slovenly clothes aud do not even try to
look fresh and neat;
