should be awarded the prize and also
that the men holding the number
nearest the flirure which should he

should be given one.
An i anilnatlon of the meter on the
machine soon disclosed the fact that
a mistake of 100,000 stitches had been
made and that the correct number

Smiley, while the one holding the
numher nearest the right one was F.
