(Original Caption) This is an illustration of the improved washing machine. The engraving shows an improved washing machine recently patented by Thomas J. Meroney of North Carolina. In this machine, while the clothes are being agitated or rubbed, they are subjected to the action of steam. This machine is very simple, both in construction and operation. It can be operated with very little exertion, and does its work quickly and thoroughly. It will wash the thickest fabric, as well as the thinnest muslin or lace. In addition to its use as a clothes washer, it may be used for washing wool, and the boiler answers for a good purpose for steaming and boiling grain and vegetables for stock.
