Your copy of the Independence Examiner looks queer. Most of you would not know just what the matter might be, but if you had been in the office and saw the printers getting used to setting type by hand once more and observed the apparent slowness of the process, you would have understood immediately. A linotype machine, on which the type is set for the daily paper, requires to be fed gas, electricity and a regular supply of brains. All these elements were present, but the gas. The gas came on during the afternoon, but the machine cannot be used until the mass of metal is heated to the proper consistency for use.
