SOMETHING ENTIRELY NEW!
The Washer That
Where The ‘ldeal” Exeellu.
The Ideal Washer should not be
confounded with any of the many de
vices sailing under the name of wash
ing machines, some of whioh have
merit in a special line, wbile they are
nseless in other classes of work but
most of which are simply invented
and made to sell by men who never
learned or understood the true prin
cipal of washing clothes.
Rubbing, not wearing shortens the
life of garments. Washboards and so
styled washing machines brutally
tear and rend, oaustio compounds
knaw and ruin.

To be the most perfect and practical
hand washing machine yet invented.
It is warranted to cleanse all kinds
of clolher easier, better with less wa

all defects, should any develop, bub
