few days since wo visited this spa

For extent and convenience, wa think this

arranged, well lighted and ventilated, and!
warmed by steam; in a word,ihero is noth

just what it is intended to be a model1

Steam presses, boiler and engino, engineer

Tho cost of tbo machinery on this floor
alone, must havo been over 50,000. Four
largo presses aro constantly running on
the immense edition of ll Gleason's Litera
ry Companion," a paper universally ac
knowledged to bo tho bost literary journal
of the present age, On tbo second, or
street floor, ia situated the cashier and head
book-keeper's department, and the grand
business hall, where tho packing, directing,
&c, is dono. On the third floor, one flight
up, is the editorial sanctum, proof reading
room, publisher's office, &o., all furnished
with elegant rose-wood furniture, velvet
carpels, &o. On the fourth, or next floor,
are a suite of rooms devoted to the artitt?,
designers and engravers. On the fifth floor
aro tho composition rooms, where the pa
