THE reputation of this Machine is now fully establish
ed as the mott reliable Machine in tbe market for
family use, and has been attested too by thousands of the
most respectable families in the Union.
This Machine makes the celebrated " Double Lock
Stitch," the only one made by machinery that meets all
the requirements of Family Sewing. Each stitch is tied
twice, so that every one is securely fastened and wholly
independent of all the other stitches for strength, so that
if tbe seam Is cut or everv tourth stitch broken, the sew?
ing must hold good while the fabric will wear. XL#
machinery which makes this stitch is a marvel of sim
plicity, requiring no mechanical skill to manage it, nor
does it require adjustment more than the mere change of
thread and needles to adopt it to the character of the
work to be sewed—coarse or fine as the case may be. It
will sew gauae iaces, and ail varieties and kinds of fab
rics between and including heavy beaver cloth, without
changing either needles or thread equally well, and re
| turn to either variety of work with perfect satisfaction,
