Peri lies Upon the manners of
the Davis Sewing: machine
for tiie Second Time.
The Davis Carries off the Honors at the
Nebraska Stale Fair.
The sewing machine contest at the
Nebraska stale fair was very interest
ing, particularly as the exhibits of dif
ferent machines was quite extensive,
and the various agents were all striv
ing earnestly to get to the front.
The display of the Davis sewing
machine company attracted a great
deal of attention. One exhibit wa
in Floral hall and the other in Max
Myer & Go's, building, both being in
charge of Mr. V. II. Dyer, general
agent, and an efficient corps ol assist
ants, and by the way, these latter are
all customers of the Davis, and not
experts, as the machine in question is
not so camplicated and difficult to un
derstand as to require an expert to ex
hibit it. Everybody is familiar with
the popular machine and about its de
partment were scores of samples
which attested in unvarying reliabil
ity, and the variety and quality of its
woik is not excelled by any rival
Among the samples exhibited was as
piece of work for a duplicate of which
the company offered 6100, an offer
which was kept open for two days. It
it is a fine specimen of shirring, knife
side and scallop plaiting, and all are
represented on the same pattern with
out basting. In auother place were
two fine specimens of embroidery, one
is net lace representing moss roses on
one side aud yellow roses on the other,
without any packing whatever of the
goods. The other is a pattern of moss
roses on the same material, and with
out any foundation.
In this connection an interesting
little episode, by the way, took place
on Inst Tuesday. Mr. Dyer, it seems,
while explaining to a lady the superior
quality Oi his machine said, "I'll cive
100 to any man who'll duplicate this
piece of work on any other machine,"
and at the same time he exhibited a
sample of work done on the Davis ma
chine. Another sewing machine agent who
heard him spoke up ami said, "Do you
mean what you say? If you do, then
put up your 3100."
Dyer accepted the challenge at once.
He said he did the sample of work in
half hour on the Davis machine, would
give the other agent, at any time,
twelve hours to do it on his machine.
The money was put up in the hands
of Max Myer, who is to witness the
work. The result is awaited with
some little interest.
Yesterday the committee on sewing
machines made their report, and
THE FIRST PREMIUMS
to the Davis sewing machine for two
samples of work, one being a piece of
silk chenille embroidered oh both sides
aud the other work baing done on
one side of the goods.
ANOTHER FIRST PREMIUM
was awarded to the Davis machine
for the best sample of heavy plain
sewing. Mr. Dyer offers $100 reward
to any company who will duplicate
The mechanical principles involved
in the Davis sewing machine differ
widely from those commonly in use,
and combine in the most complete and
perfect mannar simplicity, strength,
durability, economy, and an adapta
tion to the largest range of work.
The feed is a vital peint in any sew
ing machine, and upon its accuracy of
movement depends the regularity,
strength, evenness and perfection of
stitching. The feed commonly in use
in other sewing machines, and known
as the ratchet or four motion feed
consists of a horizontal under feed-bar
which has a four motioned movement
produced by complicated under-gear.
This feed-bar is furnished with "teeth"
which raise high enough above the bed
of the machine to take hold of and
carry forward the work, A presser
foot ceraes down on the goods and
holds them firmly to the surface of the
feed. It is obvious then, that as the
feed moves it must carry the under,
ply faster than the upper, for the sim
ple reason that the presser foot is re
tarding or holding back the upper ply,
while the feed i.s taking place; hence it
is impossible to have both ends of the
goods come out even ; and a strong and
elastic seam cannot be made, because
the lower piece being in a measure
"gathered," yields more rapidly than
the upper to any strain upon the gar
ment. The threads will be broken and
3he seam will rip.
This great defect ha3 existed since
the first introduction of sewing ma
chines, and until the invention of the
"Vertical Feed" principle (the patent
for which is the exclnsive property of
THE VERTICAL FEED,

is capable of sewing elastic goods,
making a smooth and flexible seam
with stitch alike on both sides; also of

without basting, operating with equal
facility on the heaviest as well as the
It has no underwork to be looked
after or get out of order; the working
parts being closely confined in the
head of the machine, requiring ho
other attention or adjusting than oc
casionally putting a drop of oil in the
holes provided for that purpose; it is
composed of a less number of working
paits than any other shuttle machine;
its use is more easily and quickly
learned; it is especially adapted to the
diversified wants of family sewing,
and is so simple that it can be used
efficiently by any one with facility.
Its working parts are made of tl e
best material, are compact, strong and
durable, each point of friction being
case hardened, insuring the longest
wear with the least expense for re

PRACTICABILITY AND ECONOMY.
The vertical feed enables the opera
tor to turn the work at any curve or
angle while the machine is in motion,
without changing tke tension or length
of stitch; consequently, it can easily
do in a given time one third more
work than any under-feed machine.

In the following remarkable state
ment. William J. Coughlin of Somer
ville, Mass., says: "In the fall of 187G
I was taken with a violent bleed
ing of the lungs followed by a se
vere cough. I wa so weak at one
time that I could not leave my bed.
In the summer of 1877 I was admitted
to the City Hospital. While there the
doctors said I had a hole in fhy left
lung as big as a half dollar. I expend
ed over a hundred dollars in doctors
and medicines. I gave up hope, but a
friend told me of DR. HALL'S BAL
SAM FOR THE LUNGS. I got a
bottle to-satisfy him, when to my fur
prise and gratification, 1 commenced
to feel better, and to-day feel in better
spirits than I have the past three years.
I write this hoping that every one
afflicted with Diseased Lungs will be
induced to take Dr. WM. HALL'S
BALSAM FOR TIIE LUNGS and be
convinced that CONSUMPTION
CAN BE CURED. I can positively
say that it has done more good than
all the other medicines I have taken
during my sickness." Sold by drug

Many persons will take no med

ness. This is folly. Nature always
caPs for assistance when needed to
throw off impurities. With our habits
ot life, it is necessary to render this
help. Prickly Ash Bitters will not

ders the assistance required. Try
Experience the Best Care.
The constant practice most women
have in caring for the sick makes
them often more skilful than physi
cians in selecting medicines. The
reason why women are everywpere
using and recommending Parker's Gin
ger Tonic is, because they have learn
ed by that best of guides experience
that this excellent family medicine
speedily overcomes despondency, peri
odical headache, indigestion, liver
complaints, pain or weakness in the
back and kidneys, and other troubles
peculiar to the ex. Home Journal.
