NO TROUBLE TO SHOW GOODS

[For the benefit of advertisers, present and prospective, it should be stated that these are only a few of the publisher’s kinds of type.]


Speak gently to the printer man,
His work is pretty hard;
Besides, he does the best he can
To help along a bard.

O ever ready his response
To anything we ask,
Though we demand a hundred font
He would not curse his task,

And yet his lot is not a pipe;
Small wonder he is vexed,
If we mark this for Jensen type,
And this for Caslon Text.
