arrived there. Clearing for Guam was
don by ships which wished to con
ceal their real domination. AccordiiiK
to maritime law, when once a vessel
has cleared for a port it must proceed
there by the most direct route or give
a satisfactory explanation. Guam was
a closed port imder tho Spanish rule,
and ships could always ive that as a
reason for not going there after having
cleared for the place.
The houest and efficient collection of
customs revenue at Santiago de Cuba
by the American officials has thrown
unexpected light on the extent to
which the Spanish government was de
frauded there by its own officials. Last
month $100,000 was collected in cus
toms, which is at the rate of $1,200,000
a year, and it is believed that.as trade
is increasing, the intake will l.o $1,500,-

One of the lUany Varieties o 1 Sewing:
Machine Made Nowadays.
It is a more or less familiar fact that
sewing machines are used nowadays
for sewing many dirTerent materials,
as leather, paper, canvas, carpets, rub
ber. They are used for making but
tonholes and sew-pg on buttons. Thes
are made of many types and in simply
hundreds of varieties for special uses.
But it may not be known so common
ly that there are many sewing ma-
hines now made with more than one
needle. The first of these, a two
needle machine, was made in the early
eighties. about fifteen years ago. It
was used by manufacturers of heavy
clothing, perhaps linn of all by the i
overall manufacturers, making seams
stronger by putting in two rows of
stitching. The utility and economy of
the two-needle machine soon became
apparent and it came into widespread
and diversified use. Whenever two
rows of stitching were to be made, a
two-needle machine was used. A fa
miliar illustration of the work is seen
in the two parallel lines of stitching
running with perfect exactness around
the top of a shoe vamp. Shirt sleeves
are stitched into the body of the shirt
on a double needle machine, the two
rows being made in the same time that
it would take to make one. Collars
and cuffs were stitched on two-needle
machines, as were a sreat variety of
these things, and later there were pro
duced machines with more than two
needles, the first of these coming into
use within five or six years. There are
now made sewing machines with as
many as twelve needles. A twelve
needle sewins machine simply has
twelve needles where the ordinary
sewing machiue would have one. In
stead of a single spool of thread on the
top of the machine there appears there
a rack of twelve spools. Tlu-re are
twelve tension-disks. The thread Troni
each sjtool runs through its o. n ten
sion disk to its own needle. There are
below twelve shuttles, one for each
needle. When this machine is ouer-
ated, it makes twelve rows of stitch
ing, just as an ordinary machine would
make one. The twelve-needle machines
are used chiefly in the manufacture of
