NEW EASTERN DEPOT FOR THE WORLD RENOWNED SEWING MACHINES. Opposite the Post Office, AUGUSTA, - - MAINE. These Machines, by their simplicity, durability, and : the great range ol' work they execute, have gained n reputation truly enviable. The famous successoi the si.noer Mantfactuk- ! ixg Tomi'Any lias stimulated many other compan ies to put forth all their energies* and talents to ■ produce a sewing machine that would eclipse or equal the Singer, but in every ease they have aig- . millv tailed, a.- i- plainly diou n by the fact, that of i all the travelling agents—“runners or drummers’’ ; —of other companies, none have the assurance to | claim more than an equality with the .Singer, even ] upon any special class of work. There’are many sewing machines, now offered t » . the public, that have their good point-, and arc of | much assistance to the housew ife and the industri ous seamstress. 1’arlics purchasing a sew ing ma-; chine of any sort, find the improvement on the old fashioned way of sewing by bend so great and pleasing, thal’tbey are natural)c, but erroneously, led to believe that they have the l>c.-t, until tin* spell ; is broken by the introduction of the Singer of 1870 I into a neighbor’s family, which is sure, by the in- ; creased rapidity and ease with which it does every , kind of plain or fancy sewing, to aw aken ihein to a positive, although it may be silent acknowledge- i incut ot the painful truth that there are very many varieties of work that are easily executed upon ihe Singer, but that they must either be content to do w ithout, or exchange, at a heavy pecuniary sacri fice, their curved ueedlcu, frail-powered, uurelia ble-tensioned. low-speeded or ravcl-stitehed ma chine for a Singer Sue Family Machine. Various expedients are resorted to. that the pub lie eye may be turned from the singer for the pur pose of introducing inferior machines—viz. “The .Button-Hole Dodge,” “The over-'■seaming,'” “The Double-Lock-lvnot-Stitch.”“Kla.-tic Stitch,” “Twist ed Loop,” “Self-Adjusting Tensions,” “King Finish and Beautifully Ornamented,” “Straight Needle,” “Stitch AJikc-on-both-Sides,” “Medals from Fairs,” “Vertical Feed Bars,” “Noiseless Running,” “Silent Feed.” and last an#xvorst of all, the low-priced— “Family Shuttle Machines.” Many of these points are desirable, (and the Singer’excells all in each individual speciality^ but the greatest use made of these special points! is by the retail agent who parades them be I ore* the inex perienced purchaser with such fluent and earnest style, a> h> entirely divert attention from the really important bearings of the ease. While othei inno cent local agents ignorant! \ represent that ttic ma chine sold bv them is capable of doing every varie ty of work, egual to the Singer, and *olien do tin y thus unconsciously swindle customers who cannot aflbid to squander their substance upon gilded follies and worthless rattle-traps. Parties in quest of a Sewing Machine should look about them and learn what machine is most exten sively used in families, tailor shops, shoo factories, and carriage factories. It is an aclmotrledged fact, ireely admitted by all seirtng machine dealers, that more than tiro-thirds of all the clothing worn in this country by bath sexes, whether custom made or ready made, is actually manujactured upon THE .SINGER m vv ing Maghi’m: These Machines are manufactured by one of the oldest, strongest, and most enterpr.-i’ng Compan ies that has ever been engaged in the business in the world. Throughout their immense manufac tories, which are kept in constant opera*ion “d-iy and night,” none but highly skilled mechanics are employed. Newly improved machinery is em ployed* turning out each part finished to that me chanical exactness, that every one is a perfect du plicate of the other in si/.i . weight and fini-h. All new inventions are carefully examined and tested, and if approved, are adopted, regardless of ex pense, while the many impractical humbug* that are patented are let! to grace some new wonder and learn the purchaser w hen too late, that he has “paid too dear for his whistle.” It should be re membered that the Singer Manufacturing Com pany has never made a poor Machine—from the very (list twenty-odd yearn ago. They never buv editorial notices’, or expend lnnds in “log-rolling'* at Fairs to gain medals or premiums. They simply make their Machines as valuable as money and science cau perfect them—place them in their Sales Rooms, and leave the public to find out their virtues in their own way. By this straight forward course they are m-w manutaeturingabout four hundred per dav, and at that rate, even, are unable to supply the demand. WHAT IS THE SEW r ANIL!
