The management of the Herald takes pleasure in announcing to the many readers
o f the paper that we have installed this week a junior linotype, in order to put our
selves in a position to set more, and more seasonable news matter. The cut below is
a likeness of the machine.
This week we have been badly handicapped because of not having our engine prop
erly connected to furnish power, but hereafter this trouble will be obviated and the
paper issued on time.
The linotype is the greatest invention o f the age, and we take pride in being the
first weekly paper on the Oregon coast to install a machine of this character. There
are two linotype machines ¡on the bay, but o f different model.
Ours, so far as we
know, is the third to be used in the state o f Oregon.
The machine is operated by means of a keyboard similar to a typewriter, but the
machine is much larger, weighing about 1,200 pounds, and there are several thousand
parts, varying in size from castings weighing over a hundred pounds to pieces as small
and delicate as parts of a watch. It is automatic throughout, the operator merely op
erating the keys and the machine doing the justifying, casting the line from melted
lead and distributing the molds, or matrices.
The installation of this machine is in line with our policy to give the people o f Co-
quille and Coos county a modern and up-to-date newspaper, and we consider the appre
ciation of our readers ample recompence in so doing.
Any one interested in fine machinery is invited to come in and inspect the linotype.
