Chas. E. Knowles, who is occupying a flat at io1?,
Main strcet, has been in the printing business for 18
years, from tiiie to timie. Milr. Kuiowles reports a veri-
good year's business up to I)ecember, when tlie traude

sevetal racks of type, three platen presses and a
cutiter. Thee miachinery is driveun by gas power. Job,
pamphlet aiind small catalogue work is usually printed,
buit Mr. Knowles seldom passes anything by because
it is too large for hi to handile.
