What's the Use of Waiting?
"They " flay "all things como to him wno waits," but wo have no been waiting, and we don't propose to whit. "We KNOW our prices are right, our work A-l, and if you don't bring us work v/o will como alter it, in ono way or another, either by bringing to your notice our prices, facilities and quality o2 execution, or poreonal interviews. We are not grumbling; far from it. We've had our ahare; we are still getting our share. But we have placed at your disposal a modern, and almost ideal, printing establishment, with wen facilities as to. command admiration from ail ith "whom we have business intercourse. We aro not waiting; havon't timo to wait An Up-to-Date Printing Office. One of the vows the writer made whon he was "devil" in a country printing office was, in effect, that if ho over owned or man aged a printing establishment, it would be kept clean, at least by . comparison. At that time he hardly felt the force of the vow, for he has learned aftor years of experience that it is necessary immediately after one "going over" to start at the beginning and go over it all again, ft never ends?just like a housokoepor'8 duties?but not like tho boy who sees no ubo hi washing his face becauso it will got Boiled again. But, a clean printing establishment is just as necessary for tho proper execution of work in our line as light and heat and power. And the vow has been kopt. Come and see. We Do Not Believe There is another city n tho State which sonds such a 3mall proper tion of its orders for printing and blank books away to our Northern frionds as Roanoko. All honor to our bankers and business men; that is?most all of it. Wo must reserve a littlo, as this is our "own country." We Print Anything That can bo desired or do vised irom movable type, 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 be egotisticnl at all; but combining thoso things to bring forth a harmo? nious result has been our study?and wo do claim to know our ousiuess right thoroughly. All "logether One of tho things which has contributed largely to the success of our establishment is tho systematic working "together ' of all our forces in all departments. Thi3 has reduced to a minimum tho "lost motion" which is usually to bo found in large industries. If a minute can be saved h?re, another there, it is done?an hour ia gained?thus we take care of tho fleeting moments. Five minutes wasted daily by each of our employes would mean tho interest on $10,000 a year. In thoso days of close margins each moment of timo must bo productive. Quite Recently, Too Tho times aro hard, money tight, everything handled econom? ically?but it cannot possibly stay that way. So wo are pushing ("not shoving") ahead, just as though good timeg wero upon us. We cannot afford to lag behind or worry; but in times of peaco we aro preparing for war. And whoc it comes we will havo an es tab t'.snuicnt mat can uiko euro 01 anytning mat comua?uui things that do not como now. Recently wo placed an order for one of tho largest Ibis of now typo ever given at ono timo in Virginia. On the Second Floor A long row of small presses, used for cards, envelopes, statements, note heads, tickets and small work. Here, also, is probably the most wondorful piece of mechanism in our establishment?the Railroad Ticket Printing Machine. Think of it tho next tjrne you purchase your ticket. Secured behind iron bars and double locks, it at onco suggests government bonds, with all these safeguards. Further Along On this floor is tho type-setting department, where expert minds and fingers think and act rapidly and correctly, interpreting at times hand? writing that would mako Horace Greeley turn groon with envy. Large, extra large fonts of typo permit tho handling of very large orders in a most satisfactory and expeditious manner. Our forco in I 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, accente letters, and "odd sorts" enable us tc handle difficult and intricate work in spcciul lines. On the Top Floor Is our Blank Book Manufactory, ruling rnacheins, including on which is probably tho legest south of Philadelphia ; our various wire stitchers, which will tako 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, 1"0 a minute; then our paging and numbering machines, board and paper cuttere, book presses, which exert a pressure of twenty tons or moro, perforating, punching and eyeleting machines, and tho engraving department?which latter ia an innova? tion for this eection. Our Establishment Is just oppokito and overlooking the lawn of Hotel Roanoke, (ono of tho finest hotels in the State,) which gives us a magniflcont, bright, refreshing view at all times. Our business office and press-room are on the ground floor (along with our prices). Each floor and depart? ment is connected with tho office by Electric Bells, Speaking Tubes, and Elevators; and all departments aro bountifully supplied with all kinds of Labor and Time Saving Appliances. In Our Press-Room' Can bo seen the rapid, diminutive and monster cylinder presses including the famous "Promise Keeper," turning out thousands upon thousands of sheets every day. Our largest and best paper cutting machino, the automatic cu'.ting knife sharp? ener, and tableting appurtenances aro on this floor. Tho wonderful and poworfw! electric motor, which propels the 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 be attached at momentary notice, in enso of accident to the electric motor, or for other causes, i This precludes tho possibility of a "hole" on the power question. And Our Stock-Room! If some of our friends who usually buy a quire or so of paper at a timo, could look in upon this department, thoy would not ceaso won? dering for days. Wo do not exaggerate a particlo when wo say yoit can see A TON OF A KIND; yes, TEN TONS OF A KIND. You say: "Whut, ten tons of ono kind of paper in a town like Roanoko?" That's what we said. Como and see. And, besides, hundreds of other kinds of plain, fancy and uniquo; there are stacks j of card-board, of a kind, as high as a man, and ho need not bo a Lilliputian, either. What Can We Not Do With such facilities? A card, a circular, note head, envelope, pain phlet, price list, catalogue, book, railroai rate eheet or time table, a ruled blank or a 1000-page ledger, on any or all, we assure our friends we are AT HOME, from January 1st to December 31st.

It would bo Impossible to sot down a de scrlptlvo list of nil tho vnriutlons seen In bodices, for tho pluy of fnnoy is unlimited. Among tho most conspicuous novelties, however, uro bodices half of lnco and half of other material, of whioh one part crosses over the other, the tipper ono being fas? tened by ribbons and shoulder knots. Many corsagesuro closed at tbo sido in a diversity of ways. Another novolty is tho oulrass of laco, whioh rises In a point and forms n corselet, likewise descending in a point on tho skirt, like a little tubllcr or end of a flohu. Theso two parts of tbo cuirass ore noLErto CAFE, separated by a belt of ribbon with n bow. Tho sleeves of the bodico are of hioe. Although plain skirts aro still worn, there Is a growing tendency toward trim? ming, especially for thin goods. All the lawns, dimities, cambrics and organdies aro more or less adorned, Huffy decorations being prcforrcd, as is tho case also with thin silks of all kinds. Ruffles orphtitings of gnu/o or tufTctn are much used, nnd ac? cordion plaited skirts, especially of tho "sun" vnrlety, nro having a decided vogue. They'arc sometimes plain, sometimes em? broidered, sometimes adorned with Hot bunds of ribbon, velvet or guipure. Ordinary skirts for walking ore round, touching the ground evenly nil around or escaping it by an equal distance. The back must be no longer than the front ex? cept in the case of a train, but trains aro reserved for elegant ceremonious costumes, und aro never now soon on the street. Today's illustration shows a summer wrap having short bolero fronts of red grosgrain silk, covered nil over by an em? broidery of soutache and stool beads. Theso fronts aro arranged over a full nccordlon plaiting of black moussclino do sole.

Hats for young girls aro always round and are worn toward the front of tho bead. .The trimming Is comparatively simple. The coifTuro for both young girls and young women is waved nil over. The coll of hair is arranged higher than it ha3 been this winter, and is placet! ulmost on tho top of the head. Shire waists aro mado of cambrics, dimi? ties and ginghams having n muoh more mixed design than was popular last year.

Tho newest sleeves nro ?mite closo, except at tho top, wlicro a sud? den bouffancy is evident. They liavo a turn back oulf at tho wrist. Silk shirt waists aro among tho novelties of tho sea? son, and are worn with linen collnrs aud men's ties, just llko tho cotton ones. As long as shirt waists arc worn belts will, of courso, likewise bo worn. This year they aro comparatively narrow, of leather or kid of various tints, of taffeta, velvet, satin, silk or spangles. Many moro elaborate bodleos are made to be worn with a bolt, and in that case tho latter Is joweled or covered with lnco. It may bo closed by a buckle, clasp or bow of ribbon. Sometimes it fastens at the back with long onds like a child's sash. This stylo is very pretty for pluitcd gowns of taffeta or mus? lin. Although fluffy, much adorned cos? tumes are tho tasto of tho moment, a con? trast is afforded by the olassof tailor mado gowns which art; perfectly cut, but very sinirdo and plain. Of covert cloth, scrgo or light cloth, they tire onilncntly fnshion nble looking and yet serviceable. An illustration is given of a traveling wrap of changeable silk. It is closed in front by tabs fastened by born buttons. Tho fronts of tho wrap form largo rovors extending from tho neck to the foot. Tbo pelerine, lined with white satin, joins the revits at t ho to]i. The turned down collar, like the rest of tho mantle, is ornamented with stitching.
