|+||When a [[f:form|form]] is working at press, and any of the letters are loosely [[j:justifying-lines|justified]], or from any other cause are not tight in the form, and the adhesion of the [[i:ink|ink]] and [[b:balls|balls]] or [[r:roller|rollers]] pulls them out, they are said to [[d:draw|draw]].|
|+||This accident too frequently occurs; and as it is not always perceived, errors arise which neither the care nor the skill of the [[r:reader|reader]] can prevent; when it is perceived, after an impression or two have been pulled, the [[p:pressman|pressmen]] often put the letters into the wrong place, and thus cause an error. They are occasionally left by the ball on the form, and produce a [[b:batter|batter]], which is a waste of materials, and of time in repairing it. A good [[c:compositor|compositor]] guards against this evil by care in justifying his lines, and also in [[l:locking-up|locking up]].|
