New Device Creates Sensation Amcrug
Once in a while there is something
really new and novel that eoaiies out and
creates a sensation. The newest nov
elty and one of the cleverest in a long
while is called the "Model Suit Mak
er, although the name "magic suit
maker would perhaps be more appro
priate. The first one in
was brought here by Geo. W. Geist
white, tailor, 22 South Fourth street.
Mr. Geistwhite has been wondering
ever siuce he got it why some one never
thought of the device before. It looks
just like a life-size picture of a man
in a ,frame on an easel. The front
lifts away and the body of the figure
is covered with the cloth to be shown.
The front is replaced and the figure
shows the suit .just as it would look
on a person. Style, cut, pockets, but
tons and all the details are brought out
juts as if the suit was made up. It
is a simple device that will prove in
valuable to merchant tailors.
