"Saving time and speeding the work in our engineering department is important in hastening installations and repairs as well as estimate and cost work.

"The Photostat method of photographic copying has eliminated practically all tracing, and where it formerly required two days to trace a drawing at a labor cost of $5.00, it now takes less than half an hour, and costs about 25 cents for an 18 x 22 print.

"This process is thus about 20 times quicker and cheaper.

"We copy, reduce or enlarge organization charts (many of them colored later by hand), pencil drawings or blueprints, graphic charts for executives, all with great speed and accuracy.

"The machine for itself in 8 or 9 months, because of its man-power savings."


The Photostat, which is manufactured by the Eastman Kodak Co., is a combined camera and copying machine. The copy is made directly onto a roll of paper. No intermediate glass plate or film or other negative has to be made. By copying thus directly onto the paper, the copy is made very quickly and at a low cost. Also the copy is a facsimile of the original, so that there can be no mistake in it. The print is developed and fixed right in the apparatus itself: this part of the process, as well as the focusing and exposing, all being mechanical. running water in which it is washed free from chemicals. and dried and is then ready for use.

The New York State Fair of 1918 will be held under conditions and with advantages that will distinguish it from all of its predecessors.

Coming at the threshold of the harvest season of our second year of war, it will go far beyond its customary limits as an agricultural exposition and an educational agency.

Its value will be greater than ever, which is simply saying that it will be in every detail abreast of the times; but in addition it will illustrate in many new and powerfully appealing ways the country's tremendous achievements in the twelvemonth since the last State Fair was held.

Washington's interest is indicated by the exhibits by the Federal Departments of War, the Navy, the Interior, Commerce and Agriculture.

Secretary of the Navy visits grave of distinguished New Yorker-Political
career of a man who for half a century was a power in State and nation


OMPARATIVELY few Americans today know that there was a president of the United States by the name of Martin Van Buren. And yet when his life and times are studied with the same interest given to men who have stood out in the nation's history, it brings to light a brilliantly able and faithful public servant. Our school children revel in the history and anecdotes of George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Andrew Jackson and Abraham Lincoln. There

are perhaps transcendant reasons why their careers should be a more open book than the lives of men who lived in less exciting times. It remains true, however, that the public service of Martin Van Buren is more deserving of the attention of the people than is usually given it.

The memory of Martin Van Buren has recently been honored and brought to the attention of New York citizens by a visit of Josephus Daniels, secretary of the navy, to his grave in the

little village of Kinderhook, 30 miles south of Albany. Secretary Daniels was the principal speaker at the Flag Day exercises in Albany, June 14. He remembered that he was near the obscure home of the eighth president of the United States. Kinderhook, a village of 600 or 700 inhabitants on the east side of the Hudson river, has a history that long antedates the Revolution. It is one of the beauty rural spots in that section of New York State and is celebrated

Martin Van Buren

for having given the State and nation several men of ability and prominence. Secretary Daniels, accompanied by Mrs. Daniels, Martin H. Glynn, former governor of the State, and Mrs. Glynn, journeyed from Albany to the little cemetery Sunday afternoon, June 15. Mr. Daniels placed a wreath of flowers on the grave of the most distinguished son of Kinderhook. Mr. Glynn himself, is a native of Valatie, an adjoining village of Kinderhook.

When it is remembered that Martin Van Buren was
