How Do You Like the Journal’s New Dress? [Newspaper Article] — Lompoc Journal — 21 March 1908
How Do You Like the Journal’s New Dress? With this issue the Lompoc Journal takes a new lease on life, with all the ancient type-in the office sold for old metal and its place taken by a complete line of Century Expanded body type. Or, in other words, the body of the paper is set in a brandnew “dress,” as printers say. We have selected a type that is clear-cut and x-eadable and hope our readers will like it and get others to like it. The old type that .has stood the test of time for twenty years and has been the vehicle of awsome editorial thunderings; that has befriended the lowly and warned the mighty; that has sung the praises of the “charming bride” and the “eloquent preacher;” recorded the birth of the soft-headed infant and the courtings of his soft-headed papa; that has stood for every creed and political faith under the sun; been set up and lambasted by editors of all sizes and thickness of frame and skull, and yet its utterances having never deviated from the pure and lofty...

Green Thursday evening in Odd Fellows hall, this being the third number in the series of popular entertainments furnished by the Lompoc Lyceum Bureau. It was gratifying to note that the speaker was greeted by a faix’-sized, representative audience. Dr. Green is a dazzling exponent of the English language “as she is spoke” and talks like the greased lightning he referred to. Rippling sentences glide from his lips fx-eight-ed with x high-priced words that jostle each other for space and threaten to wreck the whole train of thought; but all goes well and we listen to the mellifluous word picture of the wonders of the age painted by a past master of his art. We hear gigantic statistics of invention, of immigration, of wealth and production juggled as lightly as soap babbles, and all interwoven with a deep philosophy of life into a kaleidoscopic maze of wonderful ...
