It has not boon no very long sinco the Argus installed its big cylinder press, but our largely inorniiHcd patronage of job printing becoming of too wide a range for our one job prass, we decided wo must, have another. We also decided to overlook present cost and put in the largest and best preps of the kind made, and this week it arrived from the factory and is now installed. It is a Chal- lengo (iiirdon make and will print, a sheet Kix'Jl inches. This will facilitate the handling of small booklet printing and such work as huge posters, Half-tone printing can be done perfectly as it. has a special ink distributor for this purpose.

The only way to stop the growth of n child's mind is to stop his body from growing. Appetite Is the mother of the mind, and muscle Is Its father.

CRENSHAW, Prop. The Home of Storms. Tho waters of Cape Horn have never been mi visited by storms for more Ihan a week or two at: a stretch wlthlu Ihe memory of man. Standing on 1 the ) outpo 's of the world, Cape Horn Is the meeting place of ocean currents of very different temperature, from the Icy cold waters of the Antarctic drift to the warmth of the Brazilian and Peruvian return currents. The prevailing winds are from the northwest and west, and these, coming from the warm regions of the Pa- cillc, condense Into fogs, which the sailors cull "Cape Horn blankets" and which are the forerunners of storms. The extremely low level to which the glaciers of Tlorra del Fuego descend, tho perpetual congelation of the subsoil, the meeting of conflicting winds at very different temperatures, are nil direct or Indirect causes combining to make this the most constantly stormy region of the world.
