The Great Gold Medal,
Awarded By The
Maryland Institute Annual Fair Of 1858,
To The
Little Giant
Brick Maker.

Dane's Patent ani Sebring's Improvement
Labor-Saving Brick Machine.

For Grinding and Tempering Clay,
Moulding Bricks,
And Throwing Out Stones At The Same Time.

The Little Giant Brick Maker is worked by one horse and four hands, making 1,200 bricks per day.
It is strong and simple-has little machinery about it-any Blacksmith can repair it, or even make one. It
has only to be known, and few Farmers or large Planters would be without one, as their hands, after har-
vest, could be made profitable in brick-making.

Mannual labor is almost entirely dispensed with, except for the purpose of feeding the machine and carry-
ing away the bricks, the moulding and pressing being done by the same power that grinds the clay ; and
the machine will, when worked by two mules or horses, seven common laborers, mould and turn off easily
25,000 bricks per day. It is adapted either to steam or water power.

Baltmore. July 30th, 1858.
