NEW MERGS. INSTALLED.
Two of the latest pattern double-decker, quick-
chatnge Mergenthalers, imanufactured bv the Mergen-
thaler Co., of New. York, have been placed in the Gov-
ernment Printing Office, Victoria, B.C. The machines
have the Royer tabular attachment, which permit.
of a wide varietv of tabular composition.
A repeat order has been received from the
L'Action Sociale Catholique of Quebec for another
Mergenthaler. This office now has a battery of four
machines, all of American make.
Three new Mergs. have been placed in the office
of the Toronto Telegram, making this one of the
finest eqt?ipped offices in Canada. They iave now
ten American quick-change Mergenthalers.

H. C. Hocken, has iinstalled a No. 5 quick-change
Mlergenthaler, manufactured by the tMergenthaler

MOVED TO LARGER PREMISES.
The Mtergenthaler Co., agents for the Mergen-
thaler Co. of New York, have moved their office
from Adelaide Street west, Toronto, to No. 35, 37
and 39 L.ombard Street, where they have secured(
nuch larger premlises. The change was necessi-
tated bv the very large increase in business being
tlone in' Canada by the Mergenthaler Co.
)One featuire worthl melntioninig in colnnection
with the new office is the school to be established
shortly for the traininlg of operators. A battery of
Mergenthalers is being itlstalled for this purpose.
Owing to the largely increased numiber of machines
being used throughout the Domnion, the t emand
for competent operators is becoming larger and(
larger. It will be greatly to the advantage of
printers and publishers to have this school in exist-
ence and thus be assured of a constant supply of
In the news offices, there is plenty of room foil
the compalny to store fixings and parts, etc. Thev
will thus be in a position to effect repairs quickly.
Printers visitinig the city will always find a wel-
coine at the offices of the Mergenthaler Co.
A BRIGHT AND SHOWY CALENDAR.
Chas. B3tsh, Lmited, 16 Sheppard Street, To-
ronto, are sending to the trade a calendar, which
admnirably effects its purplose of showing just what
13ush printing inks are like. A reverse block, on0
whtich is centred the familiar Charles Bush signa-
ture, occutpies the top half of each calendar sheet,
measuring about 20 1)V 2) inches, with the calendar
for the month below. A perforation permits of the
calenldar portion being torn from the sheet, without
removing the toi htalf, which serves as a sample
sheet of the ink. Each sheet is printted in a different
color, giving thuts a series of twelve samples. By
imeans of the reverse block the colors are effective-
1v sihown and the twelve printed are certainly very
line specimens. The calendar will be found very
useful in printiiig offices on account of its imposisng
The Queeii City Printintg Ink Co. of Canada,
Iimiited, selnd out a convenient daily reminder desk
calendar, which will be greatly appreciated in malny
Canadian offices. It is fitted itto a metal stand andl
has a page for every day of the year, thus being a
constant remintler of where to buy good lithograph
atld printing iink.
ORIGIN OF NEWSPAPER NAMES.
Is it a loose applicatiotn of language to apply the word
"journal" to the publication issued every week or
month? Probably not, since the idea of the word,
seems to have been that the news sheet was a diary, a
record of day-by-day events, rather than that it ap-
peared daily itself. The very first reguiar newspaper,
indtieed, is considered to have been the Frankfurter
Journal, which appeared in I6I5 as a weekly publica-
lion. If newspapers were compelled to adhere with
literal accutracv to their titles all "gazettes"o would sell
