SINGER SEWING MACHINES
Cannot be obtained through merchandise dealers. They are delivered
directly from maker to user only through the Company's own em
ployees. There, ig.as great a difference in the cost of making sewing
machines us there is in making watches. A cheap watch wilf indicate
time with fair accuracy for a short time. Fairly good stitching can be
done on some of the old patterns of cheap sewing amenities when they
are aew, but they always work hard, are noisy and soon wear out.
livery SINGBR MACIIINJi is tested by actual sewing at the factory.
It is always ready for every kind of stitching and will do better work
and do it longer than any other because it is of Utter design and
