Insurance Paid.
Mrs. Mary E. Klngsley has received

Missoula the Travelers, Insurance
company of Hartford Conn., is in re
ceipt of a check for 11,500. It is
made payable to Mrs. Mary E. Kings
ley and is tho amount for which her

the prompt liquidation of the claim.
A Complete Descripti . of its Operation and
A Picture Ne Dress of Type
For The Examiner.
This week wo present to our reader
Numlter one, Volume 27, of the IjuV-i
County Examiner, iu a new dress ; '
type aet tip with one of the woderful
Simplex typesetting machines. The
constant growth of The Examiner had
brought us face to face w ith a problem
that the manufacturer of machinery
capable of turn lug out more work in
less time could only solve. The do-'
mnnd for more and Inter news was w
apparent that in order to Ix-st serin
the public we soiiht tho DitMlern u.u-
chines to meet this demand and how
well we succeeded remains for tho pub
lic to judge.
A picture of our machine accompan
ies the description of its operation.
It is the most wonderful piece of ma
chinery yet invented, and practically
takes the place of about three compos
itors in a printing otHco.
For Beverol mouths wo correspond
ed and figured with the Uuitype Co.,
of Rrooklin, New York, which has a
branch oftlce at 410 Sausome Street,
San Fraucisco, aud a force of expert
employees who understand tho busi
ness thoroughly and are able to cope
with the most ditllcult circumstances
that may exist iu a gountry newspa
per office iu tho West. This com
pany's manager Mr. Grigsby, soon put
us in possession of reliable informa
tion which uufolded the mysteries we
sought to have solved, that of putting
out tho greatest amount of news at
the loast cost to our readers. Pa
tron of newspapers must pay tho ex
pense of the publication, or a paper
could not exist, and the more they
can get for their money the better
they aro served.
Mr. Perry J. Wilson of the Uuitype
Co., put aside every doubt that a
piece of machinery could do the work
of brain aud hands when in fifteen
miuutoB from the time the belts were i
put on the had a stroain of type pour
ing out of the machine arranged into
words and sentences.
We are proud aud glad to show the
iiom typesetting mac Blue to any of
our readers that will cull at the olllce.
The body of the Simplex consists of
two cylinders, one above aud rotating
on the other, having a common axis.
Iu both cylinders extending verti
cally, their full length are ninety paral
lel chanuels, those in the lower cylin
der forming the magazine into which
type distributes from the channels of
the upper cylinder and is stored
for resetting. The channels are slightly
wider than the body of the type which
the machine is made to Bet.
On the forward of each channel in
the lower cylinder a series of steel
strips are inserted and projected
part way across. They preform the
same functions as the wards of a lock.
The combination of war da in each
chanel differs from that of every oth
er channel. Each typo character
iu a type font is given a combination
of nicks corresponding with the com
bination of nicks in one particular
channel, and can enter this channel
only. The central ward extends the
full length of the channel and is cut
, off just short enough to permit one
type to be pushed out at a time at
the bottom when the key is touched.
Channels in the upper cylinder have
no wards, so that the lines containing
all characters in the font will enter
any channel in this cylinder freely. In
each channel is a sliding weight, the
function of which is to press lightly
down on the line of dead type con
tained in the channel so that when the
bottom, key comes to its proper chan
nel in the lower cylinder it will drop
quickly. These weights are lifted up
when the channel is to be loaded, the
line of dead type inserted in the
channel aud the weight lowered again
on the top of the line.
The channels in the upper cylinder
are filled with lines of dead type and
the cylinder is revolved step-by-step,
bringing each of its chanuels in turn
directly over each channel in the
lower cylinder. At every step or
movement of the distributer the bot
tom type of each line of dead type
is tested by the wards iu the channels
of the cylinder. Every type with a
combination of nicks matching the
combination of wards ou top of the
rests, they iu turn dropping
when the cylinders in its revolution
brings them to their own channels.
As the distributer can supply type
much faster than operators 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, aud
is wonderfully simple in its construc
tion. The channels in thetwocyliuders
are cut with the greatest precision.
When it is understood that each of .the
niuety channels iu the upper cylinder
matches perfectly each of the chan
nels iu the lower cylinder, this accur
acy will be appreciated. This la itself
would not Beoure proper distribution
unless the upper cyliuder were moved
positively at each step to the point
where the channels all coincide as
described, held there rigidly an iu-
stant to permit the dropping of any
type which may have found ltd chan
nel. This accuracy of movement Is ob
tained by employing a cam to impart
the step-by-step movement to the re
volving cylinders.
On a solid upw right, fastened at
the top to the crossbead, and at the
lower end to a ring attached to the
bottom of the lower cylinder, is a
bracket upon which is placed a galley
of dead type for distribution. The
mechanism for loading the channels
of the distributing cylinder with lines
of dead tpye from this galley is also
attached to the upright, and ita shaft
is connected by gears with the shaft j
of the cam which moves the cylinder,
so that the two parts work in unison.
A galley of dead fe being placed
on tho bra' " , with face of type
outwar distributer is etarted.
The distributor is not delayed by
the loading but rotates at its normal
sliced. If every channel in the distrib
uting cyliuder should lie empty when
it is started the loader would fill it in
threo-quartcrs of a minute. In prac
tice, however, there are generally but
a few lines to bo loaded in each revo
lution of the cylinder. On the set
ting mechanism there is a key board
w ith ninety keys one for each chan
nel in the cylinder each key being
connected by levers and wires with a
small plunger at the bottom of its par
ticular channel.
The 'front end of the plunger rests
immediately behind the foot of the
type iu its channels, the plunger be
ing less iu thickness thant thidse
When a key is depressed on the board,
its corresponding plunger is moved
forward carrying one tyep out ahead
of it. The keys , work very llightly,
aud their action is practically in
When ejected by the plungers, as de-
scriljeL tb type I pushed out upon
the flat surface of the disc, " T.luch
circle the bottom of tV-cylinder, Its
upper wvrfaee bsing on a level wwith
the bottom of th cii.imiel. The lic
revolves rapidly, and the tyi joced
upon itare swiftly carried to the right
hand sido of the machine, where or
guide deflects the type off the disc
and upon a traveling flat belt About
half way between where the type leav
es the belt , is a little device called
the separator, consisting of two rolls
revolving rapidly in a direction oppo
site the motion of the belt. After
passing the separators the type are
guided one at a tim to wwhat is called
the packer. On entering the packer
the type run on a cam, by which they
are lifted ; a roller, bearing on a piece
called the hook, whicn is pressed for
ward by a spring, holds the type light
ly against the wall of the inner wall
of the channel. A part known as the
hammer now pushes against the foot
of tho type and carries it forward to
its proper position. The packer is
capable of handling over six hundred
type a minute. Type succeed each
other iu the ' packer, forming words
in a continuous line, which extends
across the back of the key board, the
face of the type in this line being in
view of the operator. At the left of
the key-board is the justifying mech
anism, aud the channel through
which the long line passes leads to
this, the type in the line now being
on its feet. Wheu the long line has
boon filled, the operator, swings his
chair around to the left, aud with a
small instrument called a "grab, " sep
arates from the long line enough mat
ter to practically fill a width of the
column being set. Between each
word in the line a three-em space was
played from the keyboard. Tho oper
ator increases or reduces the width of
these spaces enough to properly justi
fy the line, reading the line as he does
so, aud correcting any errors which
he may have made in setting. It is
thus possible to produce matter "re
markably clean and free from errors.
Any rerors which may be overlooked
and appear iu the proof are corrected
as iu baud set matter, and without
delay to the machine.
Having justified tb line the op
erator touches a thumb lever located
beside the galley. The thumb lever
releases a pawl which engages with a
rachet ou a rotating wheel under the
keyboard. In one revolution of tho
wheel the rule which stands behind
the type line is drawn down below it
while a line pusher comes up in front
of tho line and curries it into the gal
ley. The pusher now returns to its po
sition of rest, and the rule comes back
into position ready to support the

Would Give Dowry to
Miss Roosevelt
Mr. and Mrs. Longworth Ought
to be Able to Keep the Wolf
From Their Door.
BAKER CITY, Or., Dec. 25. (Spec
ial) Great enthusiasm has met the
proposal made here to raise a dowry
for Mins Alice Roosevelt, daughter
of the President of the United States
who is to be married February 14,
next, to National Representative Long
worth, of Ohio. Tom C. Gray man
ager of the Ophir mines in the Cabla
Cove district is the promoter of the
dowry plan, and he U receiving
hearty backing by a largo number of
influential ctizens. .
Miss Roosevelt will be the third
daughter of a President to be married
in the White House. During General
Grant's Becond term his daughter Nel
lie became the wife of Algernon Sar
toris. President Monroe's 17-year-old
daughter Martha was married in the
East room, to samuel Gouverneur, of
New York.
Subscription lists have been started
here w ith a limit of 10 cents to each
subscriber. Everybody is invited to
send a dime. The sum is to tie for
warded to the State Treasurer at Sa
ljrr, ho at" a receipt, wll return to
tvcJ subscriber a yy-tnl crd as a
souvenir of the. o.'rai ou. . Wheu the
subscriptions do s'Jh'wty 8, the
Stale Trtj.-M.urp will send Vu-t;kL.
at Wahincton. . " H.n. ta.
dowry can be turned over to the bnu
the day of the wedding.
It is expected that the plan will be
followed in every state in the Union
the Treasurer in each state being made
the custodian of the funds. At least
$800,000 'it is figured here, will be
rais d by these 10-cent subscriptions,
giving the daughter of the President
a tangible expression of the regard in
which she is held by tho people.
subscriptions are pouring in fast
to the originators of the plan in the
city, and State Treasurer Moore will
within a day or two be the recipient
of the necleus of the fund tat is expect
ed to grow to great proprortions.
The cost of issuing postal-cards re
eeipts, it is believed, w ill not be more
than 2 cents on each subscription.
This would leave 8 cents clear for the
It is expected by the promoters that
subscribers to the fund from other
tows in Oregon than Baker City will
send their contributions direct to the
State Treasurer at Salem.
After her marriage she will leave
her rooms at the White House and re
side at the home of her husband a
commodious, elegantly furnished
house in the center of the fashionable
Washington. There Mr. Longworth
now lives with his mother, and there
he has lavishly entertained during the
two seasons he has been in Washing
ton. But after this season the Long
worth home will have a new mistress
and will become even more conspic
uous than it has been in seasons past.
Between seasons the Longwortha
will make permanent home at Cincin
nati, though they will probably joia
the Summer colony at some of the re
sorts on the New England coast for a
part of the hot spell. It Is their pur
pose to make a tour of Europe after
the wedding, though this trip may be
deferred until after the close of the
session of Congress. Neither Mr.
Longworth nor Miss Roosevelt has
visited Europe and tho proposed wed
ding trip will be a novelty for them
