Amy D. Cummings

AS THE train slowed down and stopped at our little country station, I found that I lacked my usual happiness in coming home.

I loathed myself for ever getting sick and having to give up my business position in the city.

Two years’ work in an office had changed me, and when I got home everyone said,

“Why, Amy, how thin you are!”

My purse was thin too, but I didn’t care—at least I tried to make myself believe I didn’t.

Country air and rest soon did their work—built me up and made me well and strong again —but my purse was still very empty. It was necessary for me to earn money, for my father is a farmer and the prices of farm products had dropped very low, leaving other prices still soaring.

I was entertaining very serious intentions of returning to the city and getting another office position.

Then, on coming in one day, I found my mother all smiles. She was absorbed in a magazine article, and as I entered the room she read these words aloud,

“How I Make Money at Home”

“By hunting eggs and milking cows,” I answered flippantly.

She only smiled and said;

“Read this, Amy!”

I took the magazine and read the page. It gave the experience of a woman whose husband’s income was insufficient. She felt she just had to make extra money but could not leave her home and children to work outside. Finally she heard of a hand-knitting machine called the “Auto Knitter.” The company that manufactured it offered to make a contract with each owner of a machine to pay for all the woolen socks made with it— and to replace the yarn. The rest of the article told how the “Auto Knitter” helped this woman to make the money she needed.

Well, this sounded as good to me as it had to mother, and the result was that we wrote to the Auto Knitter Hosiery Company for the particulars, and later secured one of the handknitting machines.

“The Auto Knitter” justifies the saying, “good goods are doné up in small parcels” for it is small and light, easy to

clamp on any table and equally easy to run. Many of our neighbors soon called to see it, and the “Auto Knitter” was quite the topic of conversation.

When we had learned to run the machine, and people saw the splendid socks it made, two or three -of our friends began seriously to consider getting Auto Knitters themselves.

The company is always ready to accept and pay for socks made accord i n g to their dir e c t i -o n s and their wage checks come back very promptly, together with the replacement yarn.

I have now given up all idea of going back into a city office to work, for I am making from eighteen to twenty dollars a week with the Auto Knitter, and I do it without leaving the protection of my home, I have earned all my spring clothes, and a very coveted wrist watch too. Besides I have a fund that is to pay for a trip this summer.

I often wonder why more girls do not stay at home and do this pleasant profitable work instead of going to business. Some girls think, of course, that there is no fun in the country. This idea is largely based on the fact that milking cows and other farm work doesn’t appeal very strongly to most girls. At least it didn’t to me.

But give those same girls a way to make money and have nice clothes, minus the slavish work, and they would probably „think the same as I do—that a home in the country is the best place in the world.

It takes me ten minutes to make a sock, on the average, and my younger sister can knit with the machine almost as well as I can.

Mamma has never regretted getting the Auto Knitter for me, and I am delighted to have this way of making money at home, for now I am my own manager.

Instead of more than half my wages going for board and carfare, as they used to in the city, I have the cash I make for home comforts and many other things that I have long wished for. Mamma is writing too. She

wants to tell you what she thinks of the Auto Knitter.

Miss A. D. Cummings, Ontario.

The following letter was received from Miss Cummings’ mother. It gives additional interesting news about what the Auto Knitter means to this Ontario farm home.

This is certainly a strenuous time we are living in, especially for those who have daughters who are obliged to enter city life to earn tbeir own living in business offices, factories or stores—at salaries of $10.00 to $15.00 a week. Out of this a girl has to pay $8.00 a week for board and $2.00 for carfare.

The old saying, “working life out to keep life in” surely came true in the experience of our girl in business, and to make matters worse, she contracted the “flu.” This left her rundown in health and she was obliged to come home in the fall for a

How we longed for a way to keep our dear girl at home with us all the time.

Finally, as my daughter has written, we found out about the “Auto Knitter” and the company’s offer to buy socks made on the machine.

We sent for one and our girl was very much pleased with it. With the aid of the splendid instru c t i o n book she could knit a pair of socks in an hour the next day after receiving the machine. Of course practice made her more speedy, for now she finds no difficulty in making a pair in twenty minutes.

This means an average of $3.00 a day, or $18.00 to $20.00 a week and that by only working the same hours as required in a city business office.

Instead of paying out all her money for board she can dress nicely, and take her holidays when she wishes. Besides earning clothes our former business girl and her sister have helped to make the home more beautiful by adding some new articles of furniture, a new rug for the parlor and new window hangings.

Our girls tell their papa they are planning on having a moist-air pipeless furnace installed in our home this coming winter — and that the Auto Knitter will pay for it.

My husband says a knitting machine like the “Auto Knitter” is more necessary in a home than a sewing machine—and we all know what a sewing machine means to a family.

Just to think—the only expense we had was for the machine and the first supply of yarn, as the company replaces the yarn each time we send them socks. In addition, they pay express charges when we send 10

dozen pairs of socks at a time. We consider the “Auto Knitter” a good investment and a boon—for it keeps our girls at home.

Our own town merchants highly appreciate the work the Auto Knitter does and we have received several good orders to fill for their winter
