The original was in LaTeX, so I just hacked a Plain TeX solution into it :





\noindent\textbf{No. R.14.\\
5-inch Heliograph.\\
Marks III*, IV, V. Spare Parts.}

\begin{tabular}{c c}\toprule[.1em]
   \multicolumn{2}{c}{In Spare Mirrors Box.}\\\hline
   \multicolumn{2}{l}{Mirror, duplex \leaders \hbox {... }\hskip 3 in\ 1} \\
   \multicolumn{2}{l}{Mirror, signalling \leaders \hbox {... }\hfill\ 1} \\

** Phil.
