"Tired at Three O'clock?" "No Sir! I Use the Monarch"
IF typewriters were machines run by mechanical means in
stead of human hands, you would find that, agfren amount,
a jK ircr, a Monarch could be run at a higher maintained speed
than other typewriters.
Run by "girl power," you find that the Monarch is run at
a higher all-day average speed than other typewriters, and
without a "tapering off,M from fatigue toward the day's end.
Both these truths are due to the fact that
lightens the draft, uses nower more economically. Eliminates
the waste of energy that typifies the heavy-touch machines.
This in turn means increased production per machine and de
creased cost of typewriter work per folio.
While Monarch Light Touchand the
Monarch Rigid Carriage are exclusive
Monarch features, every other import
ant feature of the modern typewriting
machine, such as Back Space Key, Two
Color Ribbon Shift, Contained Tabula
tor, etc., etcwill also be found on the
Monarch. Let us give you a demon
stration of Monarch Light Touch and
other Monarch advancements.

ut In Damaging Evidence Against

It tloes not seem to he frequent
that a plaintiff get through the
courts what he considers a satis

an injury sustained when a railroad
company is the defendant. Cases

attorney for the railroad has un

resulted it. u tp!Vt f t Mi" ;i!:iin?
tilL Such a case was that of Mifc.
Herkimer of lteloit, who Fued ho
Missouri Pacific for $10,000 bo tore
a court in Kansas.
The defendants were represented
by tho able and learned Waggoner,
who Fought to prove that there wm
a full moon on the night of ,tho
accident and to place tho responsi
bility with the plaintiff. A messen
ger loy was sent for and secured
nn almanac of tho year of the acci
dent. Kxamining it only to learn
that it contained tho desired proof,
ho offered it in evidence.
In his argument the lawyer for
the plaintiff declared that the de
fendant company was the property
of certain millionaires, whom he
nnmed, who had amassed fortunes
totaling a great number of millions
and were well able to enro for his
crippled client.
Waggencr was immediately on
his feet offering loud objection
to this line of argument, claiming
that nothing had been introduced
in the evidence to justify tho state
ment. "May it please your honor, there
is," declared the other lawver. "It
is in the direct evidence offered by
the learned attorney for the de
fense." "Where?" shouted the surprised
"It is in this almanac, your
honor," cplmly replied the lawyer.
He had studied the book, and there
in its pages were pictures of tho
men named, together with sketches
of their lives, and every one of
them was rate.l at from $100,000,
000 to $150,000,000.
These figures evidently appeared
to the jury to be substantial enough
to award 11 verdict for the amount
asked, and that without leaving
their seats. New York Tribune.
