This is the process which has brought
about such a startling revolution in the
manner of producing photographic
prints. The arotype prints are made
with printer’s inks on a common hand
press, and are therefore absolutely per

of this improvement is the cheapness

I’ll give you twenty-eight cents
for it,” hid the smart man.
The native turned his head
thoughtfully on one side and con
