That position now is held by Repre
sentative Scott Ferris, of Oklahoma,
who led the fight agalnBt the Oregon
delegation in its efforts to secure for
Oregon an equitable share of the funds
arising from the sale of the Oregon &

The number of DALTONS used by the Pennsylvania System is typical of
D ALTON demand. The simple 10-Key keyboard is instantly grasped by
any employee. Accuracy is assured because the opportunity for error is
eliminated. A figure item of six figures, followed by one of four figures,
followed by one of one cent the DALTON puts dollars under dollars,
cents under cents automatically.
That is one reason why the DALTON is the fastest adding and listing
machine made. It saves miles of hand movements, saves continuous eye

they operate by touch. Make a test on your own work and see for yourself.
