The "White" .

SSewing Machine


Alphabet

I FOR THE MILLION.


PRINTED BY LEAVE & ALDEN'S PUBLICATION DEPARTMENT,
107 LIBERTY STREET, N. Y.
1884.








THE "WHITE"
SEWING MACHINE.

The unparalleled popularity of, the WHITE
SEWING MACHINE is simply the verdict of the nearly
one-half million happy possessors, who, by practical,
every-day experience, recognize
ITS INTRINSIC MERITS
and intuitively give generous expression as to
ITS SUPERIOR QUALITIES.

MANUFACTURED OF THE BEST MATERIAL
and upon principles embodying all the known
devices to prolong its wear, there can be no question
as to its DURABILITY, and, with a range of work
UNEXCELLED, we do not hesitate to claim
THE "WHITE"

THE BEST IN THE WORLD.







*Aa


A is for agent,
Whom you'll ever find
Ready to sell
When to buy you're inclined.



Bb
B is the buyer
Who wants a machine,
And likes the WHITE better
Than any she's seen.




0 stands for children,
Two wide-awake boys,
Who run to the door,
Forgetting their toys,







]i I JI
Dd
When D, the big drayman,
Drives up with his team,
And leaves in the hall -
A new WHITE machine.




SE is for ease,
S Which every one knows
Who uses the WHITE
In making up clothes.




F is the father,
Who comes home at night, ,
And finds in the parlor
The beautiful WHITE. I- -

"- Who comes on the scene,
And joins in admiring
The new WHITE machine.


Hi h

Who takes great delight
In fancy work done
On the light-running WHITE.
.".. .. .. .
4 Ii
I is for idler;
But this is hard work,
And tells us again
Of "Hood's Song of the Shirt."










J is a "jewel,"
None brighter is seen,
Than the beautiful finished '
WHITE SEWING MACHINE ..




K is a kingdom,



L 1
"And if I was a king,
J^^H F~ rA new WHITE machine
THEdA ^ Y To y0ou each I would bring.




But as L stands for labor,
And labor is riches,
You'll get rich by sewing,
If you make enough stitches.







M M
M is for mother;
Who says to the boys,
Get your books now and read,
For the WHITE makes no noise."


N n
N is the notice,
Without any fears;
That warrants the WHITE,
For a term of five years.


Oo
SO means the order,
And that's what you'll write
When you "make up your mind"
To order the WHITE








P n -fe^ i..


P is the postman ---
Who brings us your letter;
Among all our callers
There are none we like better.





Q means the questions
We always expect
When folks call to see us,
The machine to inspect.





R stands for reasons
Why our's is the best;
Good reasons are plenty-
Quite a hundred at least.










"S. is a sign
You see on the store;
Where they sell WHITE machines,
.. To the rich and the poor.



h;/

Who studies his lesson, ; jvt
But next to good learning,
The WHITE is a blessing.



Uu
U is for union,
And for use it will stand-
Our machines are in use
All over the land.








VV7
V is for venture :
We'll venture to say
You'll call in upon us
At some future day.


fWw
's the wheel-
i How pleasant the sound
When some one is sewing,
SAnd the wheel spins around!


Xx VY
X is x-anple, -mle
Some are wrong and some right; I
You'll follow the latter
When you invest ill a tWHITE.







Yy
S Y stands for years;
If you keep it with care,
W 'riThe WIIITE will last twenty,
And still do its share.

Zz
Z ii the Zenith,
The tip-top of fame;
The NEW WIrrE has gained it- H LL OF
Remember the nami.. .FA

DECORATIVE


A T

AND


EMBP OIDERY





Household Decorative Art has, within the past few years,
received marked attention from the ladies, and, catering to the
demands of the public, we have invented and produced the best
embroidery attachment in the world.
The WHITE" Embroiderer is without doubt the simplest,
best and most complete attachment of its kind ever produced,
and being patentees of the same, we reserve its sale exclusively
to the patrons of the WHITE." The simplicity of this attach-
ment is such that any person understanding the first principles
of a sewing machine can produce beautiful braiding upon felt,
silk, satin, cotton or linen, and with a little practice can as easily
produce beautiful patterns of applique, vine or flower embroidery,
enabling you to make elegant table-scarfs, lambrequins, curtains,
tidies, pillow-shams, etc., etc.
We give an illustration here of this unique attachment; full
directions for its use being sent with each.
In selecting a machine you will naturally choose the best,
and as simplicity, durability, and great range of work are the
three great elements of a sewing machine, an intending purchaser
that will thoroughly investigate will surely choose the WHITE."
