The Dixon Telegraph, where Mr. Atkins was employed for seventeen years, has this to say for him. "Charles C. Atkins, who was for a score of years foreman in this office, is now holding the same position in the Sterling Gazette. We do not know a printer who understands his business more thoroughly than Mr. Atkins and therefore believe that our neighbors will find him a valuable employee." Mr. Atkins is foreman of the job rooms of the Gazette and Mr. W. H. Tuttle is foreman of the daily & weekly Gazettes. The business of the Gazette is of such magnitude that no one man can fill the place of foreman of the entire office. Mr. Atkins is all that the Telegraph claims for him and Tuttle is equally skilled in the arts and appointments of the honored craft. All our patrons can be assured of the most thorough work done in the most satisfactory manner.
