Why Is It?
Wo have, in our oxporionco, mot
Imlhtiov" oT in??*'"hT ovory* Iniagi habl? ??i??
of business; but tho happiest, most ener
getic, and agrooablo follows aro tho agents
of tho well-known and popular "Davis
Sowing Machino." Thoy are as happy as
tho day is long. Thoy mako ovorybody
witli whom thoy havo dealings fool tho
samo. Why is it? Thoy aro mon from
tho ordinary paths of lifo,' chosen moro
for their honesty and respectability than
on account of mechanical skill, because
this "Davis" machino is thc vory aomo
of mechanical simplicity and requires no
skill in its manipulation. One hour's
operation in a customer's house amply
[lomonstrntes this fact and its advantages
become at once apparent. It does not
tako tho lady long to dcoldo In favor of
this machine, finding, ns she doos, that
she can do work on lt that would bo
impossible on machines of tho undo,
feed pattern. Any lady who has any
knowlodgo of tho Davis and other ma
shines, will toll you without hesitation
that tho Davis is incomparably tho best
Not only will it perform moro than don
bio tho work possiblo with any other
machin?, but tho work is dono with hali
tho oxovtion and with au oaso that is as
pleasing as it is surprising. Sold by
