THE OLD PRINTER.
A Sketch of Life Behind tbc Scents in
There was a wife, and there was a
boy. Long before any one now in
the office had a "sit" in news-room,
press-room, business office, or sanc
tum, and before the old man had be
gun to look out at the world through
spectacles and his figure was as
straight as it was tall, the typos and
reporters used to hear him talk about
buying a lot and building a house out
on the hill, where he could have a
patch of garden. And by-and-by ho
waa going to quit "sticking type,"
and get into something that would
let bim stay home nights, and get ac
quainted with his family. And the
suit o clothes ho bought in the fall
lasted a long way into the next sum
mer, and then they came out again in
the winter, and the old man 4,rushed"
more than he ever did again while
that dream of home was inspiring
him. It is an old story, this struggle
of a printer to get a home; auy one
of these restless mariners of the laud,
drifting from port to port and back
again, lured by the ignis fatuus of
so many cents more a thousand and a
price and a half after two o'clock, and
big bills with four or five nights'
work. Never a wandering "jour" got
a chance to stand at the old man's
case "while he was saving money for j a pity to call him back, and the boys
a house and lot, and the 'subs" look- j would say:
ed at him with the despairing glances "The old man's getting old."

old man worked bravely on, as many
a printer has worked before and since
bis time, and the little plant in the
bank began to grow brighti-r as the
old clothes grew shabbier.
And the boy growing into his tenth
year used to bo seen in tho office
after school, standing .at his tall fa
ther's elbow, learning, in a. very ir
regular, boyish, unapprenticed fash
ion, with a "cataract of question", to
"stick typo." The old man never in
tended the boy should be a printer.
And he was proud of him an of his
standing at school. And once the
boy wrote a ten-lino account of a boy
falling down-stairs, and a good-natured
reporter sent it in just as it came,
although it was a dull day, and the
scribe wanted awfully to make it a
column and put on a hanging head.
And tho old man sent marked copies
of that paper to every soul he knew
iu this world. jr
But one day an unbidden guest
came home from school with the boy,
-and sat down by the hearthstone in
the old man's rented home. And the
long days of fever and doctors' bills
drew out nearly all that little bank
account, and one black day the old
man's case was empty, and tho busi
ness office told tho undertaker that
all his bills would be paid there, and
he mustn't take any money from the
old man. And pale, and quiet, and
sad looking old and worn, was the
printer who came next day and took
'his old place at the case. The types
didn't click very fast in that "alley"
for days after .that. And sometimes
the printer's face would be lying on
the boxes in his folded arms, and how
pathetio looked the half-filled "stick"
in the clasped hands, tho composing
rule fallen out of its place, and the
pied typo and leads all tumbling to
gether. More than one printer, go
ing by on his way to empty his stick
in the galley, was a long time bending
down to find tho "take" his own fol
lowed; and more than one looking
across at the heart-broken picture of
sorrow, leaned close down to his copy
to read fair writing that was never
Dlurred when it came off the hook,
and grimmed his eyes with an un
steady hand, saying something about
the dust or the glare of the light
"And then, about five years after
that the boy's mother, weary of the
long pilgrimage, lay down to rest in a
cool arbor, roofed with waving grass
and blue violets, and awoke to kiss
tf' i- f f tr
After that, streaks of gray showed
plainly over the old man's head, and
the broad shoulders stooped a little,
and it was about that time the boys
began to call him " the old man."
The office was his home now. When
I first came on tho paper, I remember
how he used to come into the sanctum
every Saturday afternoon and run
over the exchanges for his Sunday
reading; and there were certain pa-
frs that were always saved for him.
soon learned his quiet ways, and
many times I have hid his favorite
exohanges for him, so that tho senior
editors might not out them. And
when the manager revised the ox
change list, and cut off, among a hnn
dred others, all the old man's favorite
country exchanges, I was tho guilty
man who, by a mandatory note on
the official letter-head, smuggled
them right back again. And the old
roan .always came into the editorial
rooms to write letters to a half-sister,
I believe, who waB the only relative
he had- in the 'world. She was de
pendent, I think, for I know the bus
iness manager used sometimes to pay
the old man in drafts when ho wanted
to send her money.
Ho began to grow old now. His
sorrows didn't make a morose man of
hiroT He was quiet, savo when he
preached his little sermon on temper
ance to the boys, or expressed his
views on the political issues of tho
day. "When he preaohed or debated,
he had a way of sitting at his case,
or standing in the alley, his stick
poised in the air, marking off tho em
phatio portions of his remarks. Tho
great, big, solemn spectacles came
upon the face now, and the boys oc
casionally suggested that he "open
his windows and let in the air." He
only worked four nights a week after
a while, and fell into a habit of set
ting up a good deal of reprint in. tho
afternoon. Nights when he put on a
"sub," he .sat in the composing room
and.poitered around till midnight, for
aman can't break the habits of a life
time. In the winter he "stoked," be-
cause nobody elae knew how to make
Iho stove draw, and the old man
would make things roar until the
stove-pipe was -red clear to the ceil
ing. He had a fashion now, too, of sing
ing snatches of old hymns as he stood
at his case. I don't know where he
learned them, unless when he was a
boy. A printer on a morning paper,
who goes to bed about 4 or 5 o'olock
Sunday morning, doesn't feel much
like getting up and going to church
at half-past ten. Sunday night ho
goes with I113 family, if ho has one,
and if ho has neither wife nor sweet
heart to take him, it depends largely
on the weather. If he can't stay out
doors, he goes to church; but if the
weatuer is pieasanr, no raiuer inmKs
that six nights a week in the house is
enough. Slug Nine used to call the
old man's case "The Meehn' Mouse,"
and sometimes helped him sing, but
blugJNinos sacred music was always
too vociferous in its character to
please the typo3, who made it a rule
to "wood up' with their sticks and
rattlo him down.
Sometimes the old man would lay
down his stick, t3ke off his spectacles
in a thoughtful way, and stand look
ing out of the window a long time,
forgetting there was a "galley' that
couldn't bo "proved" until he "em
ptied;" looking away off, so far away
from clicking type and the clatter of
the mallet and planer, that it seemed
but he had a good print-shop educa
liuu. .Jiiij; 4.M11U n.im wiu uiu muu
learned his letters right from tho
boi.e5, and grew up and learned to set
type in one of those mustang offices,
where they keep the typo in a coffee
sack, and chalk out the cases on the
lloor. He wasn't even a very fast
printer; ho didn't often rush, and he
uaver "soldiered for fat on tho hook,"
but took whatever came along with
equal patience and good nature,
whether it was a "pick up" or a groat
take ot "blind copy," Boribbled in
pencil on blue foolscap on both sides
of the paper and maiksd "solid," with
never a break or paragraph from A to
Z. But he would stand at that old
case and pick up type all night, peg
ging along on straight brevier as
tranquilly as though ho struck a dis
play head on every take. He always
made fair bills, and after a while, as
the sixties began creeping on him,
the boys had a way of "soldiering"
for him, and maybe you don't know
how hard it is for a printer not to
drop a good many type, and fumble
for the boxes, and let his thumb get
most awfully sore, and have to hunt
for the bellows and blowout his case,
and study tho copy very closely and
find it dreadfully hard to read, and
all that sort of thing, when by rush
ing a little he can get a "pick-up" as
long as your arm, and a "leaded" take
with a paragraph to every sentence.
But they did that for the old man,
and he knew it by and by, and loved
the boys as though they were his
own, every last "slug" of them.
And so, year after year, he wrought
among the boys on a morning paper.
He went to bed about the time the
rest of the world got up, and he arose
about the time the rest of the world
sat down to dinner. He worked by
every kind of light except sunlight.
There were candles in the office when
they came in; then they had larcUoil
lamps, that smoked and sputtered,
and smelled; then he saw two or three
printers blinded by explosions of
camphene and spirit-gas; then kero
sene came in and heated up tho news
room on summer nights like a fur
nace; then tho office put in gas; and
now tho electric light hung from the
ceiling and dazzled his old eyes, and
glared into them from hi3 copy. If
he sang on his way home, a policeman
bade him "cheese that," and reminded
him that ho was disturbing the peace,
and people wanted to sleep. But
when ho wanted to sleep, the rest of
the world.for whom ho had sat up all
night to make a morning paper, roar
ed and crashed down by the noisy
street under his window, with cart
and truck, and omnibus; blared with
brass bands, howled with hand or
gans, and talked and shouted; and
even the shrieking newsboy, with a
ghastly sarcasm, murdered the sleep
of the tired old printer by yelling the
name of his own paper. Year after
year the foreman roared at him to
"remember that this wasn't an after
noon paper;" editors shrieked down
the tube to "have a blind man put on
that dead man's case;" smart young
proof-readers scribbled sarcastic com
ments on his work, on the margin of
his proof-slips; long-winded corres
pondents, learning to write, and long
haired poets, who could never learn
to spell, wrathfully cast all their im
perfections upon his head. But
through it all he wrought patiently,
and found more sunshine than shad
ow in tho world; he had more f nends
than enemies. Printers, and fore
men, and pressmen, and reporters,
and editors, came and went, but ho
staved, and ho saw news-room and
sanctum filled and emptied, and filled
and emptied again, and filled again
with row and strange faces.
He was working one night, and
when the hours that are so short in
the ball-room and so long in the com
posiug-room drew wearily on, he was
tired. He "hadn't thrown in a full
case," he said. One of the boys, tired
as himself but a printer is never too
tired to bo good natured offered to
change places with him, but the
old man said thero was enough in his
case to last him through his take, and
he wouldn't work any more to-night.
The type clicked in the silent room,
and bye and by the old man said: .
"I'm out of sorts."
Ho sat down by the low window
sill by his case, with his stick in his
hand, his hands folded wearily in his
lap. The types clicked on. A galley
of telegraph waited.
"Will any one kindly tell me what
gentleman is lingering with D 13?"
called the foreman, who was always
dangerously polished and polite when
he was on the point of exploding with
wrath and impatience.
Slug Nine, passing by the alley,
stopped to speak to the old man, sit
ting there so quietly.
The telegraph boy came, running in
with the last manifold sheet, shout sheut
They carried the old man to the
foreman's long long table, and laid
him down reverently, and covered his
face. They took tho stick out of his
nerveless hand, and read his la3t take:
