(known as "tabulators") have been de
vised, it is true, to assist them, but so
much time is lost in "setting" the mech

stant raising of the carriage (occasioned
by the operator s lack of confidence in the
tabulator), that the invoice could very well

The typewriter that has come to stay is
not the one of ten years back, when in
novation caused such a stir in business
circles. Then nobody ever thought of as
sociating the word "alignment" with a
typewriter; it satisfied the user so long as
the machine would write some fashion or
other, and with constant break-downs
ever-present repair bills were paid smil
ingly. Bjt things are different now
i une tests au tilings, i he business man
has become wise. He wants what he
pays for. He has learned the value (from
dearly-bought experience) of a machine
which will write properly, not only the
day it is bought, but perpetually.
He also wants to be satisfied upon the
peculiarities of the many machines now
before the public. The individual claims
of our product places its position beyond
all question, and the few particulars we
give on the following pages will, no doubt
be found of interest to those buyers who
"want what they pay for"
ABOUT THE OLIVER
The No. 3 Model, which has secured
such a firm foothold on the universal
markets, constitutes what is reckoned as
the most perfect typewriter possible.
Here is our answer -IT
WRITES IN SIGHT
There is no carriage to lift; no con
structional parts to peer over. Your
work is there right before you.
Each type-bar is a double or U-shaped
one and the alignment is secured thereby.
No slots or so-called "guides" are neces
sary to preserve the alignment of the
Oliver. The U-shaped type-bar does it.
In the construction of the Oliver less
than one-half the usual number of parts
is employed, consequently what there is
to learn is learnt quickly.
The freedom of the Oliver type-bar
permits of any desired force, so that in
heavy manifolding equally good results
are obtained first to last copy.
From one to twenty copies can be
made simultaneously, without materially
No extra-heavy touch is needed to cut
a perfect stencil on the Oliver. The or

risk of "cuttingout" isavoided. The type

vital parts of the typewriter itself, render

The Oliver is the ideal machine for in
voicing. With its visible writing, per
manent printing point indicator and per
fect release key, margins are instantly
found and maintained all with greatest
simplicity. No tabulator is necessary on
the Oliver, but if one is wanted, we sup

mind, however, that we save extra cost
and give better results.
