Yet, thousands are still sold; we make them and they are sold to printers at close to cost, but it is the most expensive investment a printer can make. These articles will cost the printer from $5.00 to $10.00 each at the start. Every Common Stand and Square Leg Stone Frame will cost him more than that each year--in waste of space, 50% to 100%, in loss of composing-room labor, 25% to 50%. A modern Composing-room Cabinet will cost the printer from $75.00 to $90.00 net, but that's the end of it. Such a piece of furniture will not assess the printer each year several times the cost in loss of floor space and labor. On the other hand, it pays him dividends amounting to about 100% of cost each year. A printer will pay several hundred dollars for a press--one man works at it. He pays the price because there is no press obtainable at $5.00 to $10.00 that will do the work. Yet he will pay $5.00 for a Common Stand and $10.00 for a Square Leg Stone Frame--each article accommodating two workmen, and the printer will congratulate himself that he is economizing. There are thousands of printing-office proprietors who will tell the superintendent that the composing-room equipment is good enough. The superintendent usually knows better.

Each day sees a new convert to the idea of modernized composing-room furniture.
