Faster Printing on Better Paper

The United States is at last competing with England and Germany in paper making, and in the Graphic Arts building are exhibited the finest grades of American made fine drawing, bond printing and blue printing papers. The size of paper-rolls has been greatly enlarged, condensing large shipments. One roll, the largest ever made, is shown one hundred and fifty-six inches wide. Automatic typesetting machines have cheapened and accelerated setting, and presses are larger and faster than ever before. Color-printing is a comparatively new development, and there is a machine in the workshop which prints fifty thousand sixteen-page forms of paper an hour in four colors.  The daily magazine of Mr. Harmsworth's dream becomes nearer a possibility in the face of a machine which folds, numbers, stitches and covers printed magazines or pamphlets at one operation. Engraving machines work so finely that they can be made to cut a long paragraph on stone, appearing as a mere dot to the naked eye, but perfectly readable through a magnifying lens. Aluminum has replaced stone in lithographing, while three-color printing is developing to a point where it becomes dangerous to lithographer and chromo-printer.
