Important to Millers &. Mill Owners.
THE Undersigned would respectfully inform those
engaged in the Milling Business in N. C.,that he
keeps constantly on hand, and will supply at the shoitest
notice, that almost invaluable article
YOUNG'! IMPROVED PATENT
SMUT AND SCREENING MACHINE.
The only Machine of the ki nd that has stood the test and
given satisfaction to the public. It has surplan'ed every
Smut Machine yet offered in the State, more or less ot
which has been taken down to make room tor it. The
public need tear no imposition, as there are now some 280
Machines running in N. C; and I wish to offer no other
references than the gentlemen who are using them,
whose expectations have been more than realized in
their performance. It not only thoroughly cleanses the
Wheat of smut, but also purifies it of all other substances,
almost to perfection. It takes up but 4 feet square in
the Mill, and requires but little power, if is warranted
for five years against breaking or wearing out, and also
to retain its cleaning qualities lor that time.
There are a number of these Machines through which
100,000 bushels of Wheat have been cleaned, and they
have never been out of order one day.
There was awarded to it the Premium at the Maryland
State Fair, and a Premium with a Silver Medal, at the
Fair of the Maryland Institute, at Baltimore, last Fall.

last eight years.) I take pleasure in recommending him
to those who have stood by me so long, as a gentlemen
every way worthy of their confidence and support.
I look upon Mr. Procter, wit hoof attempting to dis
parage others, and what I say now must be believed,
(being totally disconnected with him in business) aa be

cutting all the Coats made up lor our customers for the
last fourteen months, and has no superior fn that depart
