Now that we can look for a rise in temperature remember that the temperature of chemical solutions affects their action. Chemicals are more active as the temperature of the solution rises. Watch your summer solutions, especially the developer.
When you place exposed Seed Plates in an Eastman Plate Tank filled with Eastman Permanent Crystal Pyro developer, your negative quality is properly taken care of, and when you place a sheet of Aristo or Artura Iris in contact with such a negative, you register every gradation of that negative in the print. Photographs produced via this quality route are sold on sight and bring reorders.Convention Dates April

From the reports being circulated by the makers of "just as good as Artura" and the makers of "just the same as Artura," one would think that in purchasing that company we got nothing but a trade-mark and a bunch of machinery.
As a matter of fact, we are the only ones who have the Artura formula, the Artura know how or the Artura staff. There were six directors in the Artura Company; five of them are with us.
M. A. Yauck, President, is with us; Schuyler Colfax, Vice-President, is with us; C. W. Burley, Supt. of factory and a Director, is with us; E.C. Yauck, Advertising Manager and a Director, is with us; C. L. Swing-ley, who had charge of technical correspondence and was a Director, is with us. Dr. L. M. Early, Secretary and Treasurer, has retired from the photographic field and is in the automobile business in Columbus.
When the "just as good as" and the "just the same as" stories are told to you, remember these facts and be careful that you don't confound any similar name with that of the one Artura director, Dr. Early, who is not with us, for he is not now interested in any way in any photographic manufacturing concern.
Furthermore, the business is with us - only more of it every minute. The men who made Artura and the Artura Company are just as much interested in its success as ever they were. So don't accept the "as good as Artura" stories on faith - just remember it's the old, old cry of the imitation imitators.
In this issue of Studio Light we reproduce Artura Iris prints from the studio of Howard D. Beach, Buffalo, N. Y.
Mr. Beach - now proprietor of one of the finest studios in the country - began his photographic career in 1884, in the employ of Andrew Simpson, forming a partnership with him in 1897. In 1908 he took possession of his present location, successor to E. F. Hall.
The name Howard D. Beach stands for photographic excellence and this statement is fully substantiated by the photographs herewith reproduced.
It is in successful, progressive establishments producing the very best grades of work that Artura 1 ris is a favorite, and the illustrations demonstrate how admirably Iris lends itself to the making of quality portraits.
