Tho Eriter-prlse reporter In his rounds recently visited this establishment and was surprised at the splendid system which prevails there. Each article Is handled like clockwork and passes through tho varlouB processes without a hitch until It goes to the bundle room, a sample ot the very beat In progressive laundry work.  Not only does the work move along smoothly, but the excellence of tho operatives is on all sides manifest, while the thoroughly, modern machinery which Is I11 use greatly adds to the general efficiency of the plant.  It Is hard to see why the establishment shouldn't prosper exceedingly the way things aro done there now and certainly the best of support locally should bo accorded tho management la their efforts to build up something worth while In the laundry business. .
