piece of work worthy of reproduction.
We will acknowledge in this department every
thing that is submitted to us for consideration. If we
do not think it worthy of reproduction, or even favor-
able conmmient, we will at any rate acknowledge tlie
samples and try and point out wherein it is deficient.
We have received several samples this month fromi
the job department of the Brantford Expositor. Tlie
cover design of a menu is reproduced in half-tone. It
is decidedly novel and unique. The wording appears
in black, while the rules in upper corner are printed
in red. A piece of Scotch heather is nieatly fastenced
on by means of plaid ribbon bow, sealing wax being
the adhesive used for holding the ribbon and heather
in place. The stock used is a white deckle-edge cover
paper. The heather and the plaid bow give it a de-
cidedly Scottish appearance, which, no doubt, was
much appreciated by the Sons of Scotland.

W. F. Hiltz, an employe of the Union Printing
Company, of Kentville, N.S., sends us a copy of a
catalogue turined out by that filrm for the Lloyd Manu-
facturig Co. Tlie presswork throughoutt is decidedlly
good and far above the average, the make-ready ion
the half-tones being worthy of special mention. 'Tlie
cover, which was designed and executed by Mr. Hiltz.
wlhile plain, is very neat and effective. Mr. Hiltz lha
showln considerable enterprise by hiiimself cuttintg ili(
tint block used, which registers perfectly with the rilt
work snlrrounding it.
The special souvenir itiimber of the St. Catlariitll
Standlard is a very interesting one indeed. It consists
of 54 pages and cover, the size of page being about
9 inch x 12 inch. The nuimber contains a great lmasny
half-tones, which are well printed. The make-up of
the various pages is rmuch above the ordinary. 'hie
cover design, which is reqroduced, is very attractive
