Invention, Machinery

    The first illustration shows a man having his hair brushed by a large brush rotated by a machine above the barber's shop. The other illustrations show the barber, believing that his machine requires oiling, finally discovering that its poor performance is due to the fact that the boy who turns the belt of the machine has fallen asleep.
