very kindly made for us, and pleas

member of the class received a copy
of the paper containing an item about
Since we have been studying news
papers, how news is gathered and ar
ranged affording to its importance,
and the construction of a newspaper,
we tjuitf naturally, wanted to know
how a paper is printed.
We l.y which I mean the mem

We were courteously received and
shown about the plant by members of
the staff, who very kindly explained
the details about the interesting
things that we saw.
The first, and to me the most inter
esting of all that we saw, was lino
tvne machines that cuts the letters
in metal. The linotype has a keyboard
and tiperatos somewhat like a type
writer- When the operator hits the
keys, the letters indicated fall into a
rack, and when the duplicate letters
are cut in the metal which is heated
to about 500 degrees, a lever carries
the Jotters to the top of the machine
and each letter returns to its right
place. Then the lines of type whicji
have been cut into the metal, are
placed hi a irame tne size oi a page
of a news paper, - in the order in which
a printed page appears, and tightly
fastened, for if the type Rets jum'bled

PRINTING OF A NEWSPA
. (English Theme)
Kv Jessie Chambers, Clyde
Among the forces that have worked
for Droirress in civilization, none is
of greater importance than the mod
ern newspaper. In point of both
literary and mechanical perfection,
the America newspaper stands su
preme. The American newspaper is
the "best exponent of the freedom of
the press, and in its fearless attitude
in all matters, serves the public with
a unique and honest loyalty.
While everyone is aquainted to a
great extent with the salient pro
gress of American journalism as ex
emplified in any of the thousands of
American newspapers, few of the
people are acquainted with the pro
cess of printing the pages. Few peo
ple get the opportunity to learn any
of the interesting details connected
with the production of a newspaper.
Our suprise, delight and enthusiasm
upon learning tnat we were going to
be given the opportunity of visiting a
newspaper office, can easily be imagined-
What would be the first important
thing to learn in this interesting es
tablishment Well, we soon learned
that it was the linotype machines.
These machines have keys on them
resembling tho keyboard of a type
writer. The operator always has an
exact copy, of .he article which he
'wishes, to type. Then be touches the
key 'of the letter of Which he wishes
to make. This cuts the letter on
metal. The letters arc always up
::ide down and 'backwards in order
that they will be right when appear
ing on the printed page. The metal,
upon which these letter are cut, is
remolded and used again. After be-

When all the new has been proof
read it is classified, that is, it is di
vided into several classe?, each class
making up different pages of the
paper. When the news Is classified
the pages are made up. The making
r.f each page of the paper is a unique
process. The news type is arranged
in columns. These columns are placed
in a metal frame, the size of one page
of the paper, in such a way that it
is impossible for any word to get
misplaced. The columns are also
placed in the order that they appear
in the paper. When the pages if the
paper are made up they are ready
for the printing press. The frames
containing one page of the paper, are
then lowered to the press room and
placed in the press.; Four pages of
the paper are run off the press at one
time. This press runs smoothly be
cause of an air chamber located in it.
A large ink roller rolls over the four
and puz.lmg thing concerning the
rollers wnich ink the type. The roll
ers used in summer cannot 'be used in
winter because they get too hard, and
those used in winter cannot be used
summer because they become too soft-j
This was puzzling to us.
In one corner of the press room
Was a small press which is used for
printing forms, advertisements . and
the like. The letters in this press are
picked, out and set up by hand. .
Among other things that we saw
were the mats for advertisements and
pictures. These mats are made-by
pressing together 16. sheets of tissue
paper over the. form to be printed.
These cardDoard molds or "mats" are
then sent to the different newspapers
desiring this advertising service. The

NEXT WESTERN UNION
When on my day of life the night is
And; in the wind from unsunned
I hear far voices out of darkness
My feet to paths unknown
Thou who hast made my home of life
Leave not its tenant when its walls
O love devine, O Helper ever present
Be thou my strength and stay!
Be near me when all else is from me
Earth, sky, home's pictures, days of
shade and shine.
And kindly faces to my own uplifting
The loye which answers mine.
I have but Thee, oh Father! Let Thy
Be with me then to comfort and uphold-
No gate of pearl, no branch of palm,
No street of shining gold.
Suffice it if my good and ill unreck-
And both forgive through Thy
I find myself by hands familiar beck
Unto my fitting place
Some humble door among Thy many
Some sheltering shade where sin and
And bows forever through heaven's
The river of Thy peace.
There from the music round about me
I fain would learn the new and holy
And find at last beneath the trees of
The life for which I long.
