168 MARDER, LUSE & CO. Useful Hints. When ordering a font of type, or sorts, remember that every foundry has Its own Special number, and te number, name of type, and specimen book should beiven. Our "No. 13 Brevier" doesn't mean the same face as the same mtW of other foundries. When the type is received, if it be a job or display font, examine cars- foiP to see i e letter is in t font before Iayingm ne case; i Roman or ctalc check off each letter as it is laid in the case. ALWAYS handle your ty wi1h care, placing it gently in the case, and thus save the hair-lines. In t w you may be able to make type work better and last longer. The r ar paging galley, which is about 5X6 inches, will be found useful in t the back as well as the face of your forms is clean, and have the bed, ten, blanket, tympan, etc., in like condition. When overlaying or undrlaying, look out for lums in paste and paper. The wegh of a single parcel y mail s lmtd to four punis. Ype weighing ove our pounds can be divided as required to send by mail. The rate is 1 cent per ounce. But it is safer and generally cheaper to forward over two pounds by express, and over fifty pounds by freignt. If goods fail to arrive within a reasonable time noty us, and we will send a tracer after them. If freight charges seem too heavy, advise us of the rate and amount paid. On the arrival of goods check them by the bill and no us at once of any shortage or discrepancy. it is desired to open an account at a foundry where you have no ac- qua_ntance, send references or the money.
