We call your attention to the Standard Sewing* Machine because we be- live it to be the very best sewing machine for family or factory use ever invented. Its great superiority over all other kinds is readily admitted by every person when once understood. The Standard's rotary shuttle has revolutionized the whole sewing machine principle and other sewing machine Co's are paralyzed because of their inability to meet the Standard in competition. The Rotary principle is the only correct principle for a shuttle to a sewing machine.

In tho first placo tho country as a wholo is ovor stocked. Socondly, fall feed is and will bo vory scarco on account of tlio protracted drouth. All this will tend to mako coarse wintor food scarce. It certainly will not pay to buy hay at oight or ton dollars a ton to winter stir plus stock. Now it seems to us that two things should bo done. The first, ia to save all the com foddor possible by cutting it up NOW; and the second is to Boll off some of the stook, If you have moro than you havo food to maintain through the wintor.

The Standard with its almost noiseless shuttle, which turns round like awheel, with no stop or jar motion; its great speed; its 'perfect ease in operation; its perfect tension and elastic stitch; its powerful feed; with its Steel Set of Foot Attachments, combined with its great simplicity and almost endless durability makes it by far the Best and Cheapest sewing maohine in the world, and no one should think of buy ing a sewing maohine without investigating the prin oiples of the Standard Rotary Shuttle and giving the maohine a trial.
