We owe our readers an apolo
gy this week. The publishers have
been as busy as a hen with one
.eliii ken all the week, printing what
the. lawyers call "briefs." This
"brief" business has crowded the
editor ont for a "brief" -space of
time. We have acted upon the
principle, however, that '"naif a
loaf is better than no loaf," and we^
have comc out in half sheet this
week. We beg the indulgence of
the Clarion readers this time, as
suring them that, on theiti account
we exceedingly regret the circum
stances that forced life to clip in
twain the regular sheet. We hope
that our publishers may wind up
their week's labors with fat, round
pocket-books. If they do, the
friends of-lite Clarion will pardon
them for ousting the editor and
causing him to appear on the "half
shell' ' the first week in J une.

GEMINE ! GENUINE 1 GENUINE !
Dealers in sewing machines never
tell a party that the "Stewart Fam
ily Machine" is an Imitation Six
«ïer . That would destroy the prob
ability of a sale. Hence they call
it the " Stewart Singer ." It is
legitimate only to sell a machine
for what its name calls for on the
"trade mark." Sk mld you ask to
be shown "Singer" on the "trade
mark" of the "Stewart Family Ma
chine" an explanation at once be
comes necessary. The world-wide
reputation of the "Genuine Singer"
is therefore used to sell this Boers
"Imitation Singer."
The verdict of the world places
the genuine sixgki: kalt ahead of
all other sewing machines. Com
panies have sprung up in every part
of the Union for making imitation
sixoeii machines. Why are not
similar companies formed for mak
ing imitations of other machines ;
The intelligent public will draw its
own inference. Gold is continu
ally counterfeited brass and
tin never . The Singer has taken
the first prize over all competitors
more than Tw.O . Huiidi'Cd
Times. Why ? Three-quar
ters of all the sewing machines sold
throughout the world in 1878 were
Singers. In 1879 the sales of this
superb machine reached near half
a million in the United States. The
genuine Singer is solidly built and
finely adjusted, doing the most del
icate and beautiful work with a un
iformity which is intensely satisfac
tory. The Singer Manufacturing
works at Elizabeth, N. J.; demon
strates the stability of the company.
Its stupendous buildings are a mar
vel of architectural skill. Main
building 1160 feet frontage and 50
feet wide ; Forging Shop, 100 feet
long and "50 feet 'wide : Foundry,
600 feet long find 100 feet wide ;
Cabinet Shop. 200 feet long and 50
feet wide. ; Packing Box Shop 200.
feet long and 50 feet wide. The
yard contains 5 miles of railroad
tracks. Entire works employ 8000
men. Capacity of works, (>000 ma
chines per week. Over thirty mil
lions of dollars invested in these
works. H T otice Tills. The gen
uine Singer bears the patented
trade mark and the name of the
Singer Manufacturing Company
plainly printed on the arm of the
machine. Waste no money on
counterfeit machines. B uy only
the genuine . The latest Singer has
many devices of superiority, over all
competitors in that the new treadle
and driving wheel on crank, both
worRiivr in : - ~—
lightest running machine ever made.
The public are respectfully invited
to call and examine these magnifi
cent machines, on exhibition at the
"Singer E mporium ," Parsons of
fice. M acey & J ones are perma
nently located in our midst, and
we predict for thein a prosperous
business,

pressed the sentiment of nine
tenth^ of the farmers of this parish.
In fact,, nearly every man in More
house will vote for King and is de
sirous of. his nomination. As
"Fanner" says, it is oniy necessa
ry for the yeomanry of the parish
to attend'the convention in order to
o-ive Gen. J. Floyd King an almost
"solid .shot" from Morehouse.
Let us rally to his support and
work for his nomination, at Monroe,
for he has „some opposition in this
parish hard to "out-general." It
behooves his friends ,to be awake
f. - t : J* ' .
and doing, while King is laboring
so faithfully for them in"Congress.
Nearly every day. the wires flash
from Washington an account "of the;
labors of our faithful King, and it
stands us in hand to work for his
re-election. While he is at his post,
like a true sentinel, his opponents
are mingling with the voters of the
District.
Let King's friends go to work!
