In contlection with an article on billheads on page sevetr of
this issue,a prize is offered for the best sample ofa statement head.
The idea is to foster an exchange of ideas between job printers
and to form a class for mutual education. Withl tlie co-opera-
tion of the meibers of the craft, this cai be inade very tenre-
ficial. The past courtesies of otr readers lead us to look for-
ward with confidence to a successful issue of this undertaking.

HUG;HI C. Ml,I,I?AN, To think that a job printer would do somethilg original is
. decidedly jarring to tle trade's cotiservative sensibilities, aild
. when one is discovered at the business it is certainly just to the
rest of the trade to expose him. The Ploole Printing Co. were
'r~s~. ~ showing a proof of an advertisemnent tlhe other day, in the
TRADIE. centre of which was a cut of a box in perspective. The proof
was run off in red ink, and the proofreader then took a brush
SIN;. and some yellow paint and tinted the top and front of the box
just to show the increased effect produced by two colors. It
looked exceedingly handsome, but such originality must be sat
upon or, goodness knows, half the printers will have to get otit
THE INGERSOLL SUN.
The Ingersoll Sun man is keeping up with the times, and in
consequence of the extra motion which he has succeeded in
niaintaining he has got into new premises. These are more
cominodious and convenient, and justly so, for a good paper is
always worthy of a decent habitation.
But Mr. Bellamy has not stopped here. He has put in a
new Potter drurn cylinder press at a cost of some $I,200. J.
l. Vivian, of Toronto, made the sale. As a result the readers
of thie Sun can see a huge improvement in the paper, and the
customers of the job department will, no doubt, see it also.
New type, new and specially engraved headings and sub-
headings, and better paper are also being used. There are
many printers in Canada who nleed to make such improvements,
and whose need is much worse than was that of the Ingersoll
Journalists in Newfoundland seem to have sunken to the
same depths as the politicians of Canada's sister colony. I'he
editor who commits ait assault or allows one to be committed
on himself is sadly lacking in the dignity whlich is always the
mark of the man who graces his calling. The newspaper pro-
fession generally has got past the pugilistic stage in all countries
except some of the Western States, and even there they are
better than their reputation.
P. T. McGrath, editor of the llerald, was attacked a few
days ago by a Whiteway supporter and hadly beaten. Iast
autumn the same McGrath was assaulted by a mat named
Skiffington, and later by Sir Robert Thorburn's son. l'he
latter beat him into insensibility with a club. tast June a
member of the Assembly attacked him with a loaded horsewhip.
'This makes the fourth time he has been assaulted.
The weaker party is generally to be sympathized witl, but
not here. ''he man who causes his opponerts to hate him
rather than fear him is lacking in tact and judgment. From the
reports to hand of tiese cases, Mc(;rath seems to have persist-
ently and mercilessly " nagged" his opponents in an exceeding
