Evolution of the Peacemaker.
Recently Berlin apprised the world
Jn no uncertain tones that Germany Is
Interested In the Balkan question. Evi
dently the kaiser has learned through
his little tilt with the public that It is
better by long odds to say n strong
thing occasionally than to keep feed
ing out sensations. In all his utter
ances on International affairs the Ger
man emperor has been consistent with
the old doctrine of the realm that n
nation can have peace only when It
can command respect. That was when
Germany saw possible enemies In Its
continental neighbors.
Now when the Ualser speaks for
Germany as a world power there Is In
his tones the same old ring of assur
ance that the nation Is strong enough
to command respect. Once the power
behind the Imperial frown or threat
was a big army. Now it Is a big army
plus a big navy. Once the cry of the
-would be peacemaker of Europe was
for a big navy; then it was for a big
ger navy. Now the same Hps demand
the biggest navy in order that all the
world shall respect Germany's will and
mandate. The first martial Hohen
sollern ransacked the earth for big
soldiers to inspire his neighbors with
fear. The Prussian who now alms to
do as Frederick the Great would do if
he were here wants the biggest navy
ta order to command: the respect of
the world, and the world must either
take his word for it that he seeks the
general peace or It can keep Ger
many's navy down to second or third
"Optometrist" is the new term applied
to that skilled class of people who make
a specialty of iitting glasses to defective
ryes, familiarly known as opticians
An optometry bill is now pending in the
legislature at Harrisburg. Several states,
including New York state, already have
optometry laws. The passage of this
bill will force illegitimate so-called opti
cians and spectacle fakirs out of busi
ness, and will be a blessing to the public
at large. In order to qualify as an op
tometrist after the passage of the bill,
the applicant will have to pass a rigid
examination upon the refractive, mus
cular and accommodative anomalies of
the eye. These examinations will be
given by a state board of optometrists
appointed by the state.
New Yorkers have an eighty cent
gas statute riveted down, but that
doesn't prevent the meters showing a
dollar rate consumption when tho col
lector calls with his no-pay-no-gas ulti
matum. The way things are a big' navy
seems to stand for a bigger navy, and
the way things look the biggest navy
will soon be the only one to have 'any
standing at all.
Some one must have let loose among
the English suffragettes Bourke Cock-
ran's campaign epigram, "Better riot
than rottenness."

Something that should be found in
every needlewoman's workbaskct is a

The woman who understands Mex

material employed is a very fine cross
barred muslin, worked with a colored
mercerised thread. A row of dots is

Most Useful Invention of The Age. Over 13,000 American Built
Linotypes In Daily Use Throughout The, World.
give herewith an illustration of the New Typesetting Ma
chine, which is about to be installed in TUG CITIZEN"
office as a part of its up-to-date outfit.
Years of continuous experiment and
money were required for the invention of the greatest typesetting machine, which
is called the "Mergcnthaler Linotype." The word "linotype" is a coined word,
which means "line of type." The Linotype is conceded to be the most remark
able machine ever invented, and is scarcely second in importance to the wonders
wrought by electricity. Its invention and
in the printing business. The Mergenthaler Linotype was the first commercially
successful composing-machine, and is to-day the standard composing-machine
everywhere. It marks the first and only successful departure from the long-established
forms of type-composition. The last great improvement was the pro
duction of a machine inwhich the "linotypes" were produced instantly and ready
for use on the press by the mere fingering of keys like those of a typewriter. The
keys serve to assemble temporarily a line of matrices made of brass, bearing in
dividual characters or dies, a Roman character in the upper or regular position,
and the Italic or black letter in the lower or auxiliary position, against which the
slugs or "linotypes" were cast in type metal.
The Linotype is a single machine, operated by one man, producing at a single
operation the finished product directly in response to the operation of the key
board. It composes matter more readily and more economically than can be done
in any other manner. It does away with worn and battered type, and always
gives a new, clean dress. Matter may be.kept standing indefinitely, at the mere
cost of Linotype metal.
The Linotype is guaranteed to be capable of setting 5,000 ems of solid nonpareil
per hour, and this output is widely obtained every day in commercial offices by
first-class operators. The two most recent records on a Linotype were made by
Mr. Nichols of the Salt Lake (Utah) Herald, and Frederick Koelle, Jr., of the
Philadelphia Inquirer. Mr. Nichols set
seven hours and fifty-two minutes, making
eight hours. Mr. Koelle, on Mav 11,
hours, working' off the hook.
The inventor of the Linotype was Ottmar Mergenthaler, a German clockmaker.
It has been stated many times that Ottmar Mergenthaler died in poverty, while
others reaped the reward of his genius ;
thaler died a millionaire, in 1899, and his
less than $50,000 a year since that time.
