FglHE Undersigned would respectfully inform those -fl. engaged in Ihe Milling Business in N C.that hn keeps constantly on band, and will supply at the shoitest notice, that almiist invaluable article YOUSfG'M IMPROVED PATEST SMUT AND SCREENING MACHINE. The only Machine of the kind that has stood the test and riven satisfaction to the public. It has surolanied everv Smut Machine yet offered in the State, more or less of which has been taken down to make room for 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 perfoimance. It not only thoroughly cleanses the Wheat of smut, but also purifies it ofall other substances, almost to perfection. It takes up but 4 feet squaie in the Mill, and requires but little power. It is warranted fur five years against breaking or wearing out, and also to retain its cleaning qualities for 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 Fail of the Maryland Institute, at Baltimore, last Fall.
