nearly broke my heart. I went to the hotel and shed bitter tears.
Then I braced myself up and said try again, and I went to your com-
petitor and he said, 'Why certainly; .we will start you in business
and .lend you money and let you take your time to pay it.' -And then
Jie took me out and gave me a dinner and paid 50 cents for it, by -
gosh, and gave a tip of a dime to the waiter, and I thought I was in
the hands of millionaires and that my future was bright and rosy.

Many times after that* I concluded that the advice of your con-
cern was sound, for I had a hard row to hoe, with many discourage-
ments, mostly up-hill work, nearly ruin, and if I had not had good
luck and good health I would have been ruined, but for years I laid
it up against you that you would not trust me without any collat-
eral. Now, however, I see that it would have been unfair to you and
unfair to me if you had done it. It is not the right thing to do.
I should resent it if you started a competitor against me who had
not any money, i.e., if you went into business as my competitor. You
would be doing me an injustice, and every other legitimate printer.
It was a personal accommodation at the time, but it was a bad busi-
ness policy. I recognize now that you were right and he .was wrong
and I prefer the right man to the wrong man, therefore you get my
business. I paid up the little debt and the dinner and the tip many
times over; in fact I paid dreadful usurious rates for them. We
both gambled and both won, but it was a gambler's game nevertheless."

That is our case. We believe we are doing the right thing
to-day in not starting competitive houses against youhouses that
have not sufficient capital to do business. It has always been our
principle, so that if you owe our competitor something for having
started you, you owe us a great deal for not having started others
against you. Isn't that a fair statement of the case and on that
basis don't you think you could spare us apart of your trade at
least?

Messrs. Bronson & Sanbron,

Middlesex, Ind.

Gentlemen:

Printing an imitation typewritten letter is little
more trouble than ordinary printing. It is a growing
specialty, as is shown by one Chicago man who does this
work and nothing else. He began some years ago with one
man and weekly expenses of $25.00. Now he employs 160,
and his weekly pay roll alone is over $1500.00. and
growing.

3 imitation can be so well done that not many
will detect it; and even if known to be counterfeit it
is yet a more effective circular than the one printed in
ordinary type.

When your form is ready to be locked up, spread a
piece of -China silk over its face, tucking the edges
down into the furniture and locking them up with the
form. Silk need not be tight. A little looseness gives
more of the almost imperceptible blur that marks the
original. The form, of course, is printed through the
silk, the rollers inking the silk and not the type. If
you want a heavier effect use two thick-nesses of silk.

Copying ink will not do. A new process ink is
necessary. Use rollers that have never been covered by
any other ink. When used with process ink rollers
should never be used for any other purpose, and should
never be washed.

A little experimenting will open up a new and
profitable business for you.

Yours truly,

BARNHART BROS. & SPINDLER

I have been a customer of your house for fifteen
years; I have traded with you in preference to all
others. Do, you know why? Well I'll satisfy your
curiosity.

I have discovered that you fill orders, not
only with the best type and material and machinery,
but that you fill them with such promptness and care
that an error or a delay is something almost unheard
of; certainly it is something that I have almost never
experienced in my dealings with you.

Last Tuesday I had a hurry order which came in
at 3 p. m. It must be delivered to the customer the
next evening; upon starting the work I found to my
dismay that I was unable to do the work because I
lacked two fonts of type, and some special brass rule.
I called you up told you of my dilemma and at 8
o'clock the next morning you landed the material in
my office. I now have a happy customer and his
sovereigns are in my breeches pockets. It was your
usual way.

I have had printing offices in various parts of
the country and have had occasion to order from
various branches of your house. In every case I have
found the branches like the main house prompt, exact
and intelligent. And that's why I trade with you.

Gratefully yours,

Eastwood
Dear Sirs:-

In reply to your inquiry of recent date, regarding
chases, our Electric-Welded chases made of Silver-Gloss
steel will do away with the trouble you call attention
to. For color printing where a perfect register is a
matter of utmost importance, the Electric-Welded chase
bridges the difficulty so often present in chases of the
old pounded together style. Possibly a comparison
between the old (hammered together variety) and the new
(Electric-Welded product) methods of manufacture will
convince you of the superiority of the Electric^Welded
chase when made of Silver-Gloss steel. The forge, the
anvil, the hammer, and the smithy's strong arm were the
necessary factors in the manufacture of the chase made
before the introduction of the Electric-Welded. The
uneven heat of the forge and the uncertain blow of the
hammer "in the old, has in the new way been superseded by
the gradually increased heat of the electric current,
and the lever controlled pressure, both of which are
scientifically, combined in the modern electric welding
forge. Only by the latter method is it possible to
produce a perfect chase; one that is square inside and
out; one that will lay flat; one in which type will not
work up.

Under separate cover we are sending you our latest
chase pamphlet, in which will be found full information
as to size, prices, etc.

Hoping to be favored with an order from you at an
early date, we beg to remain,

Yours very truly,

Barnhart Bros. & Spindler.

Dean-Hicks Printing Co., Feb. 10, 1906

Grand Rapids, Mich.
Gentlemen:

Concerning your letter referring to the 20th.

To make an excavation costs time and money. The
larger the hole the more it costs, and the less chance
for its being filled quickly or easily.

In type the excavation is tha '"count ,er

it is the better for the printer, and the more it costs
the type-founder. It cannot be filled readily with lint
from paper, sediment irom ink and washing liquids, and
dust and dirt from every source.

Being deep-cut there is opportunity for the face of
the letter to wear down considerably before it will
begin to show indistinctly as a blotch, The shallow
counter, as the small hole, is filled quickly and easily;
and often this sort of type is rendered useless by the
filled counter when the face itself is little worn.
High shoulders accompany the shallow counter, and these
are apt to show on paper, as you have sometimes seen.

Beep- cut type is necessary not only for maximum
service when it itself is used on the press, but is even
more essential when electros and stereos are made from
it. In these it duplicates itself, and gives the deep
shells and matrices needed in good and fast presswork.

Deep-cut type. - and that is our type is best for
every use. Type possesses no quality more important
than this. It means longest wear, good plates, good
presswork. It saves at every turn; and were we to
charge a considerable percentage more than we do, ours
would still be cheapest. We furnish, too , the most
durable metal known, with point-line 3 point-set and
point-body, supporting faces that are artistic and
handsomely useful.

Respectfully yours,

Mr. Morgan L. Wrightley,

Compliance, Ohio.
Dear Sir:

You ask concerning the term "Superior Copper .
Mixed" employed to distinguish the quality of our type
metal .

It came about quite spontaneously years ago when
we had ended our primary experiments to discover an
alloy for use in the manufacture of type that would "be
more durable and better than any known. When, with much
money and time we had accomplished this, it came as
naturally as breathing to call the result "Superior
Copper Mixed" Type Metal.

As you know, ordinary type metal is an alloy of
lead, antimony and tin. These can be mixed in many pro-
portions. Each mixture will give a different metal, and
each will have a wearing quality at variance with the
others. Our experiments discovered those proportions of
these metals giving highest result in durability, and to
these we added Copper to give even greater tenacity and
wear resistance.

We make the best type metal known. We make it
uniformly and all the time. It is a very Superior
metal, and is Copper Mixed.

Respectfully yours,

BARNHART BROS. & SPINDLER.

Chicago , 111 .
Dear Sirs :

When I bought my outfit of you nearly five years
ago, your salesman mentioned as one of the reasons
for dealing with you and using your type that you
cast all your type under one roof; that if I wanted
in future to add to a font or to procure sorts I
would get quick service from you because of that
fact, because I wouldn't have to wait till the
casting foundry, perhaps located in a distant city,
should cast and forward the supplies. That seemed
to me a good reason for giving you the order at that
time, I have had something like fifty chances to
applaud my good judgment and to confirm your
excellent argument.

In past years I have had bitter experience of
waiting for sorts and type and material, I have lost
work and patience and almost imperiled my immortal
soul because of delays that have followed orders.
Since I have traded with you its been smooth sailing
and I do not think I have had just cause for
complaint .

I find that I do not now feel compelled, as I
once did, to lay in large and unnecessary stocks of
goods to provide for POSSIBLE future wants. If I
need a thing QUICK I can get it of you.

I like that sort of a thing and therefore I like
you and I don't care who knows it.

Yours fraternally

WILLIAM B. TEMPLE.

Messrs. Barnhart Bros. & Spindler,

Chicago, Illinois.
G en t 1 emen:

I used to be in the machine business, and
having recently bought a press from you am moved
to make a few reflections. The rebuilding of
machinery in the proper way requires no mean
ability; if anyone doubts this statement let him
experiment a little in buying second hand machin-
ery from various firms that overhaul it. I have
bought several machines, and without flattering,
want to say to you that none of them has come up
to the high standard which you established in the
Cottrell & Babcock Drum Cylinder that you have
just sent me. The things that I have gotten under
the title of overhauled machines have generally
proven wrecks, and caused lawsuits, failures and
profanity. I believe, as one of your advertise-
ments says, you have applied to this part of your
business the same ability and conscientious
thought used in making SUPERIOR COPPER-MIXED TYPE
famous. Quality tells! Quality Pays! and the
best man will want the best; perhaps he will
experiment to find what the best IS, but my exper-
ience is that in all lines of printers' supplies
you are furnishing the best that can be had. You
are saving money to the buyer and you are making
it easier for him to do business. -I saw a state-
ment that during the past 15 years you have sold
nearly 10,000 second-hand machines, and I wonder
with how many kicks. You must have come out
without bruises and with abundant credit to your-
selves for you have made 10,000 buyers happy.

I went thru your shop once and noticed
these things: When a press comes in it looks like
a heap of old iron; you put it into a lye vat, so
that all the grease, putty, paint and other con-
cealing makeshifts come off and the thing lies
there in its nakedness, exposing all its weak
spots; that you throw away many a machine because
you canno t r e commend it or because it will not
pay to rebuild it; but that when a machine is
rebuilt it is rebuilt, not rubbed up, slicked up,
puttied, pasted and painted up, but rebuilt.

I like to tell you this, it is simple
justice to a firm that does its work right and
gives the customer a square deal.

Your s truly,

John N . Al br o .
