FRONTISPIECE. . William M. Donaldson, president and founder of the widely known lithograph- ing house which bears his name, was born in Cincinnati, O.. March 14th, 184.0, and is consequently now in his fifty-fifth year. The photograph from which our cut was made, was taken only a few weeks since, and is a splendid likeness of the original. Mr Donaldson is entirely a. self-made man, having lost his father while he was yet a babe and his mother dying when he was eight years of age. He has had as much experience crowd- ed into his busy life as nsually falls to the lot of half a dozen men; he has made and lost s-everal fortunes, and is now at the head of the Donaldson Lithograph- ing Co, one of the most enterprising and populars printing offices in existence. This great concern was founded by Mr Donaldson in 1863, and has ever since been under his control. It has been won-. derfully successful aud now boasts of agencies in New York, Chicago and San Francisco, and branch offices in Austra- lia and England, the latter of which was established by Mr. Donaldson last. year, he making a special trip to Great Britain for that express purpose. George Leonard, the bill poster, of Grand Rapids, Mich., is doing all the advertising for the Powers Opera House and is doing it so well, that there is no libe'ihood of a change. George attended the billposters' convention, here a short time ago, and was welcomed^by v great many "troupe"' people. The mayor of Boston will not approve the ordinance permitting the swinging of advertising banners across the street. WHY? Why is the attitude of the press always inimical to the bill boards? They make business and promote industry. Any- thing that does this, helps the newspapers and everybody else. IN ENGLAND. As others see us, through the medium of British spectacles. From America we have received what Me ^ay* term ''our other self " It is designated "Billboard Advertising." It is a title which sounds strange in our ears, but it is realy the American Bill- poster: The first number was issued on November 1st and a very interesting, bright, and sanguine journal it is The style of its comments are too piquant for our more phlegmatic temperment to fnlly appreciate, but to those who are i'in the know 3 ' they are doubtless all the more interesting ' It is jlliistra'ed very finely, is puMished at Cincinnati, Ohio and the price per copy is 10 cents The subscription for a year is 90 cents. Many of the Atnericau billposters take «-ur publication, and it may be that some of our friends would like to take in the American organ of the trade. If so, thev will know where to obtain it, or we should be pleased to supply them with i- each month if they make their wishes known to us — The Bill foster, publisfisd in London. England. Mr. O. P. FAIRCHILD, Whose picture appears above, was born in Cincinnati, Ohio, March 1, 1832, went Covington, Ky, in 1842. At the age of sixteen he learned the cooper trade, at which he worked until 1866, when his health failed, and being advised by his doctors to do outdoor work, he commen- ced carrying the daily papers, and in conjunction posted a few bills on small fences, averaging about two dollars'per week for long time. While pursuing this occupation, he became acquainted with Mr. Jos. Havlin, father of the now fxmous theatrical manager, who went his security for umber to build bill boards, whichhe built himself. From this small beginning has built up a substantial bus- iness, employing at present, three men, one of whom has worked for him nine- teen years, which goes to show that he does first-class work. He now has over 7,500 running r eet of bill boards, 1 1 and 12 feet high, also a large number of three sheets, and about 7,000 running feet of fences for small work. Besides Covington, he bills West Covington, Lud- low, Mildale and Centra] Covington. He is now building more boards along the electric car line to the Lagoon Park. Mr. Fairchild is highly respected in both Cincinnati and Covington, and has a large circle of friends. FROil PRINTERS' INK. "The trouble with a bill board is it's apt to fall flat in windy weather.—Jed - Scarboro." And the trouble with the above squib is that it is utterly flat, no sparkle of wit or meaning to it.. The Beeman Chemical Co., Cleveland, 0.,'and the Pillsbury Milling Co. Minre- apolis, Minn., are again using the bill boards extensively Mr. E. T. HEVERIN, A splendid likeness of whom appeared in our January number, is the senior member of the Louisville Bill Posting firm, E T. Heveim & Bro., and Vice President of the A. B. A. Association. Being a practical man, he has piloted the business for the past sixteen years to success. Mr. Heverin is energetic and alive to all business improvements, genial in his manners, a quiet man in political matters and yet a power to such an ex- ten» that his advice and assistance is al- ways sought, he never being on the los- ing side. And even now. at this time, he is setting his figures for a big sur- prise" in 1896 Mr. Heverin being pro- gressive in all matters of national and municipal importance, is a member of the Commercial Club, is chairman of an ortaat committee on reception of the G. A R. Encampment in Louisville, in September. He has taken a great interest in the Bill Fosters' Association, and has taken pride in being the organizer for the Southern States, and has worked un- tiringly to building up the State Asso- ciations and assisting the A. B. P. A A Poster Show, that is tc say, an exhi- bition of posters, probably the finest ever seen in 1 his country, was held in Buffalo last week,' undei the auspices of the Buffalo Society of of Artists. A correspondet sends us some partic- ulars, and the catalogue with its Beards- ley illustrations in green, purle, white, which contains a description of 138 pos- ters,; this including the collection recent- lv shown at the Grolier Club in New York. These latter were obtained through the courtesy of Geo. DeiForrest and are mainly French in design and execution. ■ DENVER NOTES.
