The Man Who Gave to the World

the Typewriter.


C. Lathome Sholes,of Milwaukee, and the

Wonderful Work We No Wrought -- He

Drew No Profit from the Fuit of His Unique XXX


[Special Millwaukee (Wia.) Letter.

Thickly covered with grimy dust

there recently reposed in the junkroom

of a Milwaukee machinist the remains

of the first successful typewriter ever

built. The machine which has revolutionized commercial correspondence

had lain thus amid ignoble surroundings,

quite forgotten, for over twenty

years, but, like John Brown's body, its

soul was marching on.

"I saved it because the Ivory in the

keys was worth something, and I

thought I could use it over again some

time," said the machinist to the

writer. "If you want to pay me for the

ivory you can have it." A bargain was

immediately struck at $1, and both

parties to the transaction were abundantly

pleased. Four times the size

of the machine on the market todday,

a drayman was hired to bring the relic

from the machinist's, and when a tape

measure was applied to it, it was

found to be two feet across by two and

a half long. It had been larger, for it

was somewhat dismantled.

When in working order there was a

printing carriage that moved across

the top and printing types that were

arranged as they now are in the standard

machines. The keyboard, as is

shown in an accompanying view, was

modeled after that of the piano, there

being a row of white and a row of black

keys, back of which was a third row of

rond brass keys, from which the idea

of te present keyboard was eventually


Every schoolboy knows, or has ample

opportunity to know, that Elis Hows

invented the sewing machine, and .e

knows, also, If he knows anything,

that the-cotton gin was Invented by

Whitaey. These ames appear in his

text books of history. The names of

Morse and Fulton are inseparably assm

elated with the telegraph and the

steamboat, and ere long the name of

Bell will be fanmiliar to the schoolboy

as connected with the origin of the

telephone. It is doubtfl if there has

been sineo the production of the sew

ing machine any invention so notable

as that of the typewriter, or one d

sisned to so completely penetrate the

business life of the world-the tele

phone, even, not excepted. Away back

in 1?67 the tclentifie American said


editorially that the man who would

invent a seecessful writlag machine

would not only secure a fortune, but

would confer a blessnag on meaknld.

invemtlen that foreshadowed the type

to be used by bookidders and others.

regarding the importance that would

attach to the successfu invention di

such a machine.

Gidden showed the paper to Sholes,

and the latter was ispired to begin

active experimects, Soule being also

Induced to help in the endeavor. They

made Klelasteuber s place their sew

denvous, and interested the propriet.r

and his head workman, Matthias

Sehwalbach, in the work. As with

many other inventions, there were

constant disoauragements met with

while the idea was being worked ouat

Varioui principles were tried sad then

liacarded, and the experiments were

found by no means inexpenaive.

It was in Septenber, 167, that a ma

chine was fnally produced that weould

write. The inventor was in high

feather, and letters were at once wri

ten on the machine sad seat to per

sons who had been ogniasant of the

work. So atissed was Mr. Sholes that

he had produced a machine of peas

cumbersome afair on an expeem

a Milwaukee life insurance eompaty.

"I wouldn't give the thing table

gruf though well-meaning way, when

the work of the machine had been

demonstrated. The inventor Was

somewhat cast down, but he lived to

It was so far satisfactory, however,

that it wrote rapidly and accurately,.

One very noticeable defect was that a

sheet could not be seen until the writ

inl was completed and the plan of

printing through the paper against the

ribbon was bad, necessitating,as it did,

the use of tissue paper entirely.

One of the letters written on the hut

typewriter was sent to James Dens.I

Slowed down sequential movement of adjacent typebars.

If manuscript reading, then the typebasket restriction might be.

If speaking by only their own tangs at the time in ad-live, then it might not.

Tang or mouth might have the restriction of not to speak bad and not to chose like tongue twister  but smooth tongue, though.

The age of people living not to collide typebars.

The era of tamed people avoiding collision of typebars with living to chose keyboard wording ways.

A hundred years of Westerners writing with typewriter of manual operation.

Their keyboard wordings were filtered to go out though the typebaskets not to collide.



Bukowski could write (faster? maybe or) quicker than typewriter could, and could write on electric and Mac on and on.

Until Bukowski's wild heart tamed calm.

And then, the typewriter kept running for a while.

And later, electric introduced.

Or later, his IIsi brought him to the Mac or PC stage of poet..

Don't hurry, be happy. When you operate typebars sequencialy especialy in adjacent.

Don't hurry, be happy.

Don't too quick

Don't too rapid

And cope with the risks of adjacent typebars’ collisions each other.

The world without rapidity or quickness of series of words' appearance.

Visible and accessible to typebars made user people participate in better performance of typing.

Visible and accessible to typebars made people users possible to participate in better performance of typing.

How to cope with the risks of the typebar collisions.

Slow and calmed down operators in front-striking era. or How to relate well to risks.

Slow and calmed down operators after front-striking era.

As Stickney proposed in his patents of US676208 or US889344, the risk to collide typebars each other was increased in change from up-strike to front-strike.

But the direction and the stream to change from up- to front- did not change and continued.

Without Stickney's patents of these execution.

Why? Visible, yes. But besides..

It was said. To strike keys in rapid one after another , would make collision or lead to the jamming together of typebars.

So why they do not jam so badly in front-strike era?

Because typist became slow.

Slow against quick or harry haste or rapid.

Even pacing.

Even if the typing speed is fast, if the interval of sequential keying is kept enough, typebars do not collide.
