Bad Paper Conditions
The conditions in the paper market are at present very demoralized and the situation is further complicated by the recent severe storms which made it impossible to procure any paper from our regular mills. In consequence of this FIRE AND WATER ENGINEERING has been compelled to fall back upon a little different grade of paper, as have the majority of other publications. Several, in fact, have even been affected so far as to temporarily suspend publication on account of the lack of paper. We trust this is only a temporary condition and that matters in the paper market will soon improve. After all. the editorial contents of our paper is what counts rather than its appearance, and this will continue to be held up to its present standard.
