rpHE (trover & Raker Elastic-Stitch Sewing Machines
1 are superior to all others for the following reasons:
1. They sew direct from the spools, and*require no
rewinding of thread.
2. They are more easily understood and used, and
less liable to derangement than other machines. .
X. They are capable of executing perfectly, without
change of adjustment, a much greater variety of work
than other machines.
4. The sti'.ch madehy these machines is much more
firm, elastic, and durable, especially upon articles
winch require to be washed and ironed, than any
5. This stitch, owing to the manner in which the
under thread is inwrought, is much the most plump
and beautiful in use, and retains this plumpness and
beauty even upon articles frequently washed and
ironed until they are worn out.
6. The structure of the seam is such that though it
be cut or broken at intervals of only a few stitches it
will neither open, run, or ravel, but remains firm and
7. Unhke other machines, these fasten both endsot
the seam by their own operation.
8. With these, machines, white silk is used upon the
right or face side of tho scant, cotton may be used
upon the other side without lessening the strength or
durability of the seam. This can be doue on no other
machine, and is a great saving upon all articles stitch
ed or made up with silk.
y. These machines, in addition to their superior
merits as instruments for sewing, by a change of ad
justment, easily learned and practiced, execute the
most beautiful and permanent embroidery and orna
