CORUNNA This is the Northernmost Province of Spain. a part of the old Province of Galicia, bounded North and West by the Sea. The country is very mountainous, craggy and picturesque; and essentially agricultural. The inhabitants are de- scendants of the ancient Goths. They are not very tall, but stout and robust. Corunna, the capital, was founded by the Phoenicians several centuries B. C. Our picture represents the Provincial dress of the rural population, in a multitude of whose homes you will find our Grand Old " Singer.' THE SINGER MANUFACTURING CO. TUNIS. ONE OF THE BARBARY STATES OF NORTH AFRICA. BOUNDED NORTH AND NORTH-WEST BY THE MEDITERRANEAN, SOUTH-EAST BY TRIPOLI, SOUTH AND SOUTH-WEST BY THE SAHARA, WEST BY ALGERIA. IT WAS LONG A DEPENDENCY OF TURKEY, BUT HAS BEEN UNDER FRENCH PROTECTION SINCE 1882. THE NATIVE INHABITANTS ARE MOORS, ARABS AND NEGROES. VERY LITTLE IS KNOWN OF THE INTERIOR OF THE COUNTRY. BOTH MANU- FACTURES AND AGRICULTURE ARE IN A VERY UNDEVELOPED STATE. TUNIS, THE CAPITAL CITY, BUILT AT THE HEAD OF A LAGOON CONNECTED WITH THE BAY OF TUNIS, 18 A CITY OF GREAT ANTIQUITY, AND 18 BUT THREE MILES FROM THE SITE AND RUINS OF THE ANCIENT CITY OF CARTHAGE. FOR MANY YEARS THE TUNISIAN PIRATES WERE THE SCOURGE AND TERROR OF THE MARINE OF THE WORLD. OUR PICTURE REPRESENTS A NATIVE TUNISIAN IN THE USUAL COSTUME, SEATED AT OUR “SINGER" MACHINE, WHICH IS EXTENSIVELY USED IN TUNI8. THE SINGER MANUFACTURING CO. SERVIA Acountry of Europe, bounded N. W. by the river Save, separating it from Austria, N. and N. E. by the Danube, separating it from Mungary and Rou- mania. The capital city is Belgarde. The country is mountainous, being traversed by portions of three great mountain chains, the Carpathians, Balkans and Dinaric Alps. The climate is cold in the mountains, but mild and pleasant in the valleys, The inhabitants are Serbs, a branch of the Slavic race, who speak the softest, most musical of all the Slavic dialects. They are noted for their firmness, courage and generosity. Our photo represents a group of Servians in their usual somewhat fantas- tic dress, demonstrating the usefulness of our Singer Machine, which has found its way over the mountains into thousands of Servian homes. THE SINGER MANUFACTURING CO. BOSNIA. A territory of Europe, enclosed by Dalmacia, Slavonia, Servia, Albania and Montenegro. It was formerly a Turkish Vilayet, but is now under Austro-Mungary. The country is very mountainous and better adapted to grazing and stock raising than to the cultivation of grains. Fruits are an abundant product, especially prunes. The Bos- nians are of Slavic stock, finely formed and intelli- gent. This young man in his picturesque national dress is a fair type of the average Bosnian. The Singer Machine has found its way into the moun- tain and valley homes of Bosnia and large num- bers are sold annually. THE SINGER MANUFACTURING CO. SERVIA A country of Europe, bounded N.
