GREAT CLOCKER! VIOLET MILLS RAILROAD unaffected and at times almost bur lesque humour therein displayed is irre sistibly human. One hardly feels that here machines are being offered for sale. Are not these delightful illustrations in tended to show above all how pleasant a thing life can be; how much more com fortable and amusing it could be made and incidentally more profitable to the owners of such machineswith the help of such amenities? Amazingly simple too are the means used to stimu late curiosity and arouse interest. The delightfully roguish elements portrayed in these compositions radiate an at mosphere of happiness and well-being. This effect is obtained by a deliberately economical use of humourous forms and by a masterly skill in the employment of direct contrasts of black and white. Where, however, colour is introduced, the ingenious devices of half-tone tints have been avoided. In clearly, almost roughly etched strokes is to be seen the course of both processes of printing, now side by side or intersecting as occasion demands. Droll and amusing always, ever bewitched as by a goblin and yet full of innate charm. Just as there are people from whom it is im possible to take a joke amiss, so in the bold flights of the Mills' advertising genius one is always prepared to find unfeigned pleasure. Captivating is the natural freshness of the compositions as well as their charming unaffectedness which is the outcome of that rare wedding of commercial shrewdness to an artist's vision. Such an alliance not only swells one's banking account, it also enriches the heart. Translated by Flora Salmond-Volkmann The Great docker!
