to these men Is left the problem of doing

problems that has ever bothered,the rail

"It seems that each foreman of every
ear shop has a different Idea of how a
mall car should be constructed," raid Mr.
Johnston, "snd as a result there are some
of the most outlandish contraptions ron
celvable us In the service. It not only
causes much trouble to the- clerk, but

easily as not, would quickly do away with

Taking advantage of the blizzard Mon
day night, yiggman forced entrance Into
.ha Fanners State Hank of Florence and
attempted to loot the valut.
It la believed that the men, although
they chore a night to attetipt to rob
ihe bank when a large amount of money
tva kept In the safe, are amateurs, for
they made a bungling job.
Nothing was taken from the bank, as
W. R. Wall, prealdent or the bank, saya
the robbera were evidently frightened
away when Mr. Wall returned home,
about 1 a. m.. In fits auto, which be
keeps In a garage under the bank. II
says he thinks they were there when h
snd Mr. Parker entered th garage.
The robbera had secured a sledge ham
mer and a. jimmy, from the blacksmith
shop, near by; They had worked. on th
thick wall of the vault but a short time
when they were frightened away. They
had five thicknesses of sole. leather which
was being used to deaden the sound.
Th robbers eatered through the post
office by prying open the window, but
did not touch snythlng there. There was
about 3,000 in cash in the vault of the
Sick headactie ts cr.use or a disordered
stomach. Ten Chamberlain's Tablets

( , Causes of Typewriter Noise
A "writer in a recent publication, divided typo
writer noise, i. e.that referring to the typewriter:
itself, like old Gaul, into three parts.
" ,' " First; that "produced by the spacing mechanism?
Second, that produced by the impact of the type
against the platen.
Tlxlrd, that produced by the shifting of the ear
f y ringe to maJke capitals..
" An analysis of, these divisions, with reference to
i ; ' "Smitlv Premier'-discloses: j ,
; i , As o the first (the noise produced by the spacing
. mechanism )tho Smith 'Premier is as quiet, if not
; 1 ' 'V. more quiet, than anyj ' . ,; ; '; " I
' 't ' . As to Kecond-(the noise produced by the inv
V P,nct of.tho type onit the. platen) -it is less on
.. X the Smith Premier than on any other, because the
Y Smith Premiei4 prints' wiih -a high speed, light
weight, single type baragainst a platen, firmlv
' supported in a, rigid carriage.-. .
As to the thiri( that produced by the shifting
, of .'the carriage, or basket, to make capitals)"-
! there is no such noise on the Smith Premier, be
cause it has no shift. -
