tfT THIS ADVERTISEMENT SHOULD BE CAREFULLY READ REMEMBERED BY EVERYONE IN TERESTED IN FENCING. THE PATENT OVAL SAMSON FENCE WIRE Efaii now been before the public for four years, and during that time 5,000 TONS HAVE BEEN SOLD Giving very great satisfaction, in proof of which we hold numerous testimonials from well-known colonists ; and the demand is daily increasing to such ah extent, that numerous spurious imitations have lately been introduced in the various markets of Australia and New Zealand, for the sole purpose of damaging the reputation of the Patent Oval Samson Wire. The Samson Wire By using the Patent Oval Fence Wire you get a better and cheaper fence'than any other, and the best proofs are the nutations already referred to. A comprehensive circular as to its advantages, with numerous testimonials from well-known colonists, will be posted to any address on application. The state Forests of Victoria are fenced with the Patent Oval Samson Fence Wire; the one at Dookie is, without doubt, the best Wire Fence in Australia, and people come from great distances to see it.
PRICES GREATLY REDUCED The public, when purchasing, are therefore cautioned to see that each coil bears a tin tally thus : PATENT OVAL SAMSON WIRE, IN OVAL ; And the Patentee’s Tally or Trade Mark : M B R IN PADLOCK. Manufactured by the Whitecross Wire Company, Warrington, England. Was patented and introduced four years ago in Victoria, New South Wales, Queensland, and New Zealand ; and the, principal claim set fourth was its being made OvaL to prevent fraud. Yet, inthefaceof these patents, firms—many of respecaltry standing—have, for the sake of a paltry commission, lent themselves to the introduction of various spurious imitations, which render them liable to at law, and annoyance and disappointment to the users. We would point out to intending purchasers that any person erecting Oval Wire Fences, other than the Patent Oval Samson, renders himself liable for damages. The Patent Acts on this point are very explicit y therefore, after this notice no excuse can be made. Wehave had instances brought under oui notice where scmepersonshave been so unprincipled as to mix the Spurious Oval Wire amongst the Patent Oval Samson in order to make a sale, and damage the the reputation of the genuine article. We have a great aversion to take legal proceedings in this matter, but shall be compelled to, in self-defence, unless these practices are at once stopped.
