Not long ago, the Argus discovered that the number of papers it printed every week was too large to be folded by hand. It accordingly put in a newspaper folder, which is doing excellent work, folding papers at the rate of nearly 2,000 an hour. The Argus has for a long time been setting much more type for its readers than any of the weekly papers of the county. Henee for some time, the proprietor has 'been watching the progress of the Rogers typograph and, the first of the week, made a visit to Detroit to investígate the workings of the typograph in that city. So that we may now announce that type for the Argus will hereafter be set by machinery. Af ter our [operator becomes acquainted with the working of the machine, we expect to give our subscribers much more reading matter than they have had. The work on the Argus will then be nearly all done by machinery from the setting of the type to the folding and mailng the paper.
