EDINBUnOH, Oct. 1. By Tho As

somo reminiscences of tho lato And
rew Cnrneglo, In which ho dispose.!
of a story which has long been cur
rent that Mr. Carncglo received tho
lato King Edward at Sklbo with the
salutation, "Hall, tat King Eddy."
Guthrie tolls what the story is based
on as follews:
"At Dunrobin, not at Sklbo, his
lato Majesty asked Mr. Carnegie to
tell him about a great banquet giv
en in Mr. Carnegie's honor at Pitts
burgh. Mr. Carnegie mentioned
that Joaquin Miller, tho American
poot, had recited a poem in which

ON TRADE PAPER
NEW YORK, Nov. 1. For tho
second time i,n the history of the
modern publishing industry, a maga
zine has been published without the
aid of compositors. The experiment
was first mado a week ago by the
Literary Digest, one of the scores of
periodicals forced to suspend type
setting by tho lockout and strike in
tho local printing trade.
Nugcnt's Weekly, a national mag
azine, devoted to the interests of
manufacturers of women's garments,
followed the example of the Liter
ary Digest with the' announcement
that publication would be maintain
ed by tho samo process every week
until the striko is ended.
Tho trade magazine claimed to
have made considerable advances
over Its literary contemporary in
mothods. Tho same process of type
writing and then photographing the
pages was used, but by the use of
a special typewriter the lines were
"Justified" or equaled in length. A
special process was also used in the
electro-engraving, said to bo a meth
od recently patented.
