Respectfully submitted, . HORAOK BOIES. ODD SELECTIONS. Nearly #10,000 is paid for pensions to firemen in New York city every month. more work with tho same effort, would naturally attract the attention of nil interested m typewriting-. «o that when the Duplex- Typewriter Co. of thisi city exhibited the work and speed of their "Duplex" ut the World'sTair m October it was a great' surprise to the from all parts of the world who saw it in operation, and it suddenly became famous. Expert on- eratorsand salesmen of other tvne- wnters on exhibition looked it over knewag-ood thing- when they saw it' applied for g-cneral n.g-eneics and are now selling-the "Uuple.v." The judg-c of awards thought it was entered too late for competition, but finally promised to''send a committee around to look at it." 'I'he committee went and the Duplex' wn-rietl off the hiffhcst honors, a.medal and diploma, and in giving 1 reasons therefor the committee stated the superior points of the "Duplex" in a nutshell, as follows: 1. It is a successfu) attempt to double the speed now attained by capable operators on other typewriters. ». This maehin'e can print any two clifterent letters of the alphabet lit tin- same instant and us nnickly as any one letter win be printed by 'other typewriters. This is consequent on Jmvin«- an alphabet for each hand, hence permitting- both hands ALWAYS to bo ut work. 3. It hits a double center, or two points of contact for type and paper •1. It is strong-ly built, with c-i'-wit probability of long- service in omt-o work-. An opportunity to exhibit the "Duplex" was all that was necessary to launch it on the market, Tho company arc receiving- applications for ag-encies Irom all parts of the United States and Irom foreign countries. Within the last week they huvo received applications from Month Africa, South America, Australia, 2\ r ew Xeuland and an application from Odessa, Itussi!),, with an order for a '• Duplex" for immediate shipment. Dealers have' been appointed m nine liti-ffe cities and orders are coming- in faster than the machines «m be manufactured. It is every whore admitted to be the fastest typewriter m the world. Thus within three mouths a DCS Aloines enterprise lias passed throug-h the experimental into a profitable trade, and with promise for the future. A' Vale ' eie, 'In! ' UJe ."D, Bishop, Terry.
