See the New Typesetter.
Last week the Glacier Installed a
late style Simplex Type Setter. The
addition of this new and expensive
machiurey la necessary to more fully
meet the requirements for publishing
a newspaper such as the enterprise and
progreBsiveness of this community de
mands. The largest possible amount
of news matter must be handled, and
hand composition Is becoming too
slow in this rushing age. With the
Simplex, we will not only be able
to handle a larger amount of news
but do it easier and better, hold ins I
the forms open later and gotting tho
oest or the news of Whe dav that
wnicn comes in late In the day.
We cordially Invite the readers of
this paper to call at the offlce any
tune during the dav and witness
the operation of the machine. Be
lieving our friends will be interested
in knowing something of this tine
piece of mechanism, we Dresent here
with a cut of the Simplex, and a de
scription which will enable any one
to understand its working.
ihe Dody of the Simplex consists
of two cylinders, one above and rota
ting on the other, having a common
axis. In both cylinders, extending
vertically their full length, are 90
parallel channels, those in the lower
cylindor forming the magazine into
which type distributes from the chan-
nels of the upper, and is stored for
resetting. The channels are slightly
wider than the body of the type which
the machine is made to set.
On the forward side of each channel
in the lower cylinder a series of steel
strips are inserted and project part
way across. They are called "wards",
as they perform the same functions
as the wards of a lock. The combina
tion of wards in each channol differs
from that in every other channol.
Each type character in a font is given
a combination of nicks corresponding
with the combination of wards in one
particular channel, and can enter this
channel only. The central ward ex-
ends the full length of the channel,
and is cut off just short enough to
permit one type to be pushed out at
the bottom when the key is touched.
The channels in the upper cylinder
have no wards, so that lines contain
ing all characters in the font will en
ter any channel in this cylinder free
ly. In each channel is a siloing
weight, the function of which is to
press liiihtly down on the line of
deatl type contained in tho channel,
so that when the pottom type comes
to its proper channel in the lower
cylindor it will drop quickly. These
weights are lifted up when the chan
nel is to be loaded, the lino of dead
type inserted into the channel and
the weights lowered again on top of
the line.
The channels in the upper cylin
der are filled with lines of dead type
and the cylinder is revolved step by
step, bringing each of its channels
in turn directly over each channel in
the lower cylinder. At each step or
movement of the distributer the bot
tom type of each line of dead type is
tested by the wards in the channels
of the cylinder. Every type with a
combination of nicks matching the
combinations of wards in the channel
over which it is brought drops down,
while those differing in combination
rests on the tops of the wards, they
in turn dropping when the cylinder
in its revolution brings them to their
own channels. As the distributer can
supply type much faster than operat
ors can set it up, it is not necessary
to keep it working all the time.
The mechanism by which all this is
accomplished is accurately made, and
is wonderfully simple in its construc
tion. When it is understood that each
of the 90 channels in the upper cyl
inder matches iwrfectly with each of
the channels of the lower cylindor,
this accuracy will be appreciated.
This in itself would not secure proper
distribution unless the upper cylinder
were moved positively at each step
to the point where the channels all
coincide as described, held there rig-
tho drop
limy liuv
This accuracy of movement is ol
tained by employing a cam to impart
the step-by-step movement to the re
volving. Ihe cam revolves on
shaft, the bearings of which are rigid
ly attached to tho crosKheHil of the
machine, which in turn is llnnlv at
tached to a main shaft extern! iiiK
'inrougn ootn cylinders, lotion i
unptirxou 10 uie cam inrottgn gtiars
extending back to a shaft on the
orosshcad driven by a belt or a motor.
The cam works against rolls having
Hearings on pins driven solidly int
the top of the cylinder. These rolls,
45 in number, form a circle about
four inches less in diameter than the
cylinder. As there are jtiHt half
many as mere are Channels, the cam
in each revolution gives the cylinder
two forward thrusts, moving it each
time a distance equalling the distance
between the channels. The rolls are
shaped to conform to the shape of
the cam; this insures the accurate
movement of the cylinder. Tho rolls
overcome friction, thus preventing
wear on uie cam, and nils, tho part of
we machine requiring greatest degree
or accuracy, will work for years with
out readjusting.
On a solid upright, fastened to the
top to the crosshoad, ami at t he low
er end to a ring attached to the hot
torn of tho lower cylinder, is a brack
et upon which is placed a galley of
dead type for distribution. The me
chanism for tho channels of tho di
tributlng cylinder with lines of dead
type from this galley is also attached
to the upright, and its shaft is con
nected by gears with the shaft of tin-
cam which movos the cylinder, so that
the two parts work in unison.
The working parts of tho londinu
mecnantsm consists of un arm. tic uat
ed by a cam, for lifting tlie weights
In the channels of the ilistrilititinc
cylinder: a plunger ror niishinu a sin
gle line of dead matter into tho chan
nel whou the weight U raised, which
plungor is operated by an arm con
nected with a sceond cum; and a
devise for making tho parts operate
whenever an empty channel comes
to tho loading point as the distribut
ing cylinder revolves. Theso parts
are all driven by a single shaft, on
which are two cams and the releasing
A galley of dead type lieing placed
on the bracket, with the face of the
type outward, tho distributer is start
ed, If the matter boing distributed
is leaded the leads are withdrawn by
the plunger as it roturns, and are
droppod into a receptacle below the
loader. The pawl being disengaged,
as before described, the vortical shaft
now rests until another empty chiui
nol presents itself to be loaded, The
column of dead matter is moved for
ward by a spring, bringing the next
line in the galley into position to be
loaded. All these movements are tier
formed during the interval between
each forward step of the cylinder.
They are made quietly, and without
strain upon the typo, each line lieing
separate from the column in the gal
ley before ixing carried into the
channel by tiro plunger.
The distributer is not delayed In
itio loading, but rotates at its normal
sjieed. if every channel in the dis
tribnting cylinder should be empty
when it is started, the loader would
fill all in three-quarters of a minute
In practice, however, there are gen
erally but a few lines to bo loaded in
each revolution of the cylindor. The
lower case letters and other characters
principally used are located in front
of the operator, and as they becomi
filled or emptied ho stops or starts
the distributor by moving a conven
lentiy located lever. When the galley
of dead type becomes empty, it is the
work of but a moment to take it off and
substitute a full one of either leaded or
solid matter.
The sorts in the different channel
distribute in about the proportion re
quired by the operator. This depends
somewhat upon the character of the
matter which is being set and dis
tributed; so provision is made for
aulckly removing from its channel
in tho lower cylinder any sorts which
distribute faster than required, or for)
replenishing the supply of sorts which
do not distribute rapidly enough,
tialleys ror containing a reserve sup
ply of sorts are kept iu a cabinet sent
with machine.
On the setting mechaninin is a key
board with ninety keys one for each
channel in the cylinder each key be
ing connected by levers and wires
with a small plunger at the I
ttom or
s particular cliaiinei. ihe front-
end of the plunger rests immediately
idly an instant to
ping of any type
found its channel.
behind the foot of the bottom type in
us cnaunei, and when a key is
uepressoa on the board, it corre
sponding plunger is moved forward
eanying one type out ahead of it.
Ihe keys work very lightly, and their
act ion is practically instantaneous.
W hen ejected by the plungers, as
described, the type is pushed upon
the Hat surface of the disc which en
eireles the bottom of tho channels
Ihe disc revolves rapidly, aud the
type ejected upon it are swiftly car
ried to the right hand side of the ma
chine, where a switch or guide de
llects the type off the disc and upon a
traveling flat belt, running parallel
w ith the edgo of the disc at this point,
by which the type is carried forward
to a point directly back of the key
board and somewhat above it. About
half way between where the type
leaves the disc aud the point to which
they are conveyed to the belt, is a
little devloe called the aeparator, con
sisting of two rolU revolving rapidly
in a direction opposite to the motion
of the belt. There is just distance

lino a three-em space was played from
the keyboard. The operator increases
or reduces tho width of these spaces
enough to properly justify the lino,
reading the line as he does so and
correcting any errors which ho may
have made in sotting. It is thus pos
sible to produce matter remarkably
clean and froo from errors. Any er

lug mechanism is the fact that the
spaces and quads distribute directly
into boxes located within easy reach
when justifying. Those sorts return
to tho point where they are noeded
without handling or attention of the
operator. In justifying, it is not nec
essary to pay any attention to the
way spaces and quads) are put in, as
they will dslrihiite no matter which
end or which side around.
Having instilled the line the opera
tor touches a thumb lever located be
side the galley. The thumb lover re
leases a pawl which engages with a
ratchet on a rotating wheel under the
keyboard. In one revolution of the
wheel, the rule which stands behind
the type lino is drawn down below it
while a line pusher comes up in front
of the line and carries ft into the gal
ley, which rests on a support behind
t he rule. The pusher now roturns to
its position of rest, and the rule comes
buck into position roady to support
the succeeding line while being insti
lled, the whole movement of these
parts occupying but a moment.
J On top of the line pusher, which car
ries tho line of type into tho galley
as above described, is a receptacle for
leads, the mechanism is so arranged
that a supply of leads can quickly lie
inserted, and, being in full view, the
operator can toll when tho supply is
becoming exhausted and replenish it
without disturbing any other part of
the machine. If the matter being set
is to bo leaded, the ojiorator moves a
small thumb-nut to position and a
lead is delivered liehiud each line as
the lino pusher carries it into the
galley. If more than one lead is re-
u uired lietween the lines, the thumb
lever referred to before is held out
and tho pusher will continue to de
liver lends until the dosired number
has been delivered. If, however, the
matter is to be set solid, the thumb
nut is returned to its original posi
tion, an the line pusher will convey
the lines into the galley without de
livering any leads. This devise has
been found to lie a great convenience,
as tho operator is relieved from in
serting tho leads lietween tho lines by
hand, and tho output of the machine
is thus increased. When a galley has
been filled it is removed from tho
support by moving back the latch,
and an empty galley substituted the
typo of the galleys being all ready for
proving, etc., when removed from the
machine, without furthor lock-up or
other handling, licside the justitler,
aud w ithin easy reach, is a partition
ed shelf, for containing rules, dashes,
heads, etc. Every need of the opera
tor has been carefully studied and
means provided by which he can por
form his duties without incouveui
ence or loss of time.
All parts of the machine have been
designed in the most simple and sub
stantial form, particular attention
haing lxcn given to making them
accessible and interchangeable. Lti
plicntos or parts subject to wear aro
sent with machines, and can easily bo
substituted by the operator when
those on the machine are worn. The
averago compositor quickly learns tho
requirements of the machine and how
to meet them, and will soou attain
average speed in operating.
