It seemed that some time previously, Jones was persecuted, almost to death, by a
sewing machine agent who wouldn't give up trying to sell him a machine. In
desperation, Jones built himself a diving bell and went out to sea for 400 miles,

THE SEWING-MACHINE MAN. " There ! " said Mrs. Hall, as the sewing machine
came down with a thump and stopped; "I've broken my needle. Do go and get me
one, Carrie, and hurry back." " Well," said the young girl addressed, " I will

come ...

Around mid morning Tom and Ann Carnellis, the campsite owners, gave my
slashed tent to their handyman, a little old man with an ancient pedal powered
Singer sewing machine in a ramshackle hut and he began the repairs straight
away. From their comfortable bungalow I called American Express, the local CID

machine man and from inside of a worn out black, cheap looking plastic bag for
which most ...
