THE matter of lining type is so important that every printer should be familiar with the details of our
Point-Line, Point-Set. Point-Body Lining System. This system saves the printer many a dollar in composition
time, to say nothing of the increased beauty of his work. Every -printer has experienced trouble in bringing
type on different bodies to line, and in lining rule with type, and therefore knows the great loss of time
unavoidable when lining type is not available. Take a legal blank, for instance, in which words in larger type
that begin paragraphs, as well as some others, must be lined as near as may be with the letter selected for the
body of the work, and in which two-point brass rule must be lined with the type; hours of valuable time must be
spent by the compositor having only old-system material at his disposal, because of the necessity for using paper
and cardboard to bring about even a semblance of alignment between the various faces and between type and
rule. No printer worthy of the name will willingly send out slip-shod work; hence the time spent in lining
different faces with each other and with rule is a matter of serious moment. All such expense is unnecessary
now, thanks to the Uniform-Line type, and the printer is enabled to pocket the money heretofore expended for
work of this kind. The Barnhart Bros. & Spindler Point-Line. Point-Set, Point-Body Lining System embodies
the following well-known and tried lines. Uniform-Line. The point line in each body to which the majority
of faces are cast. All Roman and body faces are cast on this line, as well as the leaders, etc. This line is so
placed that properly proportioned descenders can be cast entirely .upon the body, free of kerning, from smallest
to largest size. All Uniform-Line cast faces will line together body for body without justification; and, by the
use of point leads or slugs, one size body can be readily made to line with all other sizes. In the majority of
cases the difference between any two bodies is two points or a multiple thereof. Text-Line. For such faces as
Scripts, Texts, or the like, where a longer descender is cut for typographical effect, we have established a point
line on each body always varying above the Uniform-Line two points or a multiple thereof. Hence any Text
Line face may be made to line with any face cast on Uniform-Line or Cap-Line in the same way that Uniform
Line faces on different bodies are brought to alignment, and the result is attained as easily. Cap-Lne. For
Title, Two-Line, and other faces without lower case. All Cap-Line faces on the same bodies line with each
other at the bottom without justification. All Cap-Line faces from the smallest size to 36-point line with each
other at the bottom without any justification. All 42-point and larger Cap-Line faces line with each other with
out any justification. All Cap-Line faces in bodies from the smallest to 36-point will line with 42-point and
