Arkell's patent is for a "new and improved machine for manufacturing paper and other bags having pasted seams direct from a continuous roll. The machine folds the paper or other fabric, and pastes it, so as to form a flat tube, and then creases and cuts it at proper points, in such a manner as to admit of the bottoms of the bags being properly folded and formed, and, finally, cuts the pasted flat tube into suitable lengths, the folding and pasting of the bottoms of the bags complete the same afterward and separately performed." (Patent Number 74,190)
