The only Machine of the kind that has stood theef and
given satisfaction to the public. It has surplanted every
Smut Machine yet offered in the State, more or less of
wbicb bas been taken down to make room tor it. 1 he
public need fear 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 op but 4 feet square in
the Mill, and requires but little power. It is warranted
for 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
Fair of the Marvland Institute, at Baltimore, last Fall.
