You have doubtless seen in the Associated I'rcssdispatches that some one had succeeded in per- fecting a simple device, to be quickly interchangeable with the tsviue knotter for binding grain, thus enabling the farmer to use either twine or wire, by this device effectually preventing the purchaser of a machine from being subjected to any combination or trust on twine, or in any manner suffering from the cause of scarcity of libres from which twine suitable for binding purposes is made. The enormous in- crease of consumption of fibres (unless some new iibre should be discovered suitable for this use.) would necessarily in a few years put twine out of the resell of the farmer, especially with the present low prices of grain. We hardly need tell you that it is ilcConnick who has perfected this device above referred to. It is practically our old wide-famed wire binding device much simplified, which is if possible even more simple than our simple knotter. It needs no further introduction to make it a recognized success the world over, and thus add another laurel to the ilcCor- raick. When the farmers call for relief, McCormick, with his ever ready and helping hand, comes to their aid. It is looking more to future relief to the tanners than to the present year that we now offer this attachment for sale. It will be our effort to serve first those who give their order-, fur machines lirst. We cannot at this time tell just how many we can complete in time for the present harvest, probably or but you may broadly say that for the harvest of "1S90 we can have in the Held 200.UOU if the larmers demand them. They will readily attach to any of our chain drive binders of previous years' manufacture. tests and com- parisons we might say that, with wire at 10 cents to the farmer and twine at 2u cents, wire would be about 30 per cent the cheaper material; further, it is proof against the fraud and decep- tion which are so much practiced by twine manufacturers, and is also insect proof. We hardly need attempt to in- struct either you 'or the farmers as to its advantages. "We only need refer to the advantage of owning a machine that can successfully use either or both. shall be able to supply this attach- ment to the farmer for the small sum of Slu, truly a small sum as insurance to make him master oi the situation. If there are any who do not wish to give an order i'or one now there are surely none who will not prefer a machine that can have it attached in future if the twine markets are excess- ively against them, which they are pretty sure to be unless they (the farm- ers; d'ecide to use wire and reduce the consumption of twine.

The fibres for making it have been purchased by the twine manufac- turers at a price that will not stand much reduction, and if the crop mat- ures favorably, as is now indicated throughout the world, there is very liable to be a great demand at harvest time that cannot be supplied, and price will not cut much will be twine, twine at any price. You are as well aware of the "fact as we are, that harvest will be much earlier this season than for years previous, materially re- ducing the time in which the available fibres may be made into twine in time to save the crop of this year. Let every one know that this device is ilcCormick's. The opposition will doubtless in their mad efforts to de- tract, promise everything for the future to be attached to their machines that shall equal JlcCormick's. It is perhaps not necessary for us to say to you that it would be an impossibility for any of our competitors with their old known devices of a single wire to make a machine that would permit of the holding of the end of the wire in the head of the needle and allow it to be forced through the falling grain on the deck of the machine. The double spool with its devices for operating the con- tinuous wire is ours and covered by a patent. A word on the subject of wire. It is difficult for us to tell at this writing just how much wire we can supply. We shall do everything we can to meet the demand, but unce ordered by the agent it must be paid for whether sold by him or not. AVe will not obligate ourselves to supply beyond the amount that we can secuie in the short time that is left, as you will readily under- stand that it is a subject which we can- not anticipate and do not know how much to provide for. We have done our part well. To what extent the farmers will appreciate it and protect themselves remains in their hands. We shall be glad to hoar from you fully, giving your views, and any- thing in the way of information as to what your territory will likely demand so far as your judgment would go, fol- lowed by developments as they present themselves. This attachment will not be sent out on consignment, but we guarantee it to be equal to our old wire binder. We will be ready to com- mence supplying them in about twenty days. What we can accomplish in the short time left before harvest depends largely upon the quickness with which the farmer responds with his demands. Would advise them all that they must depend largely upon twine for this year, but for the future the price of binding material is almost in their hands.

If you are going west hear in mind the follow- ing facts: Pacific railroad owns anil operates 9S7 miles, or 57 per cent of the en- tire railroad mileage of Montana; spans the ter- ritory with Its main line from east to west; is the short line to Helena; the only Pullman and din- ing car line to Butte. and is the only line that reaches Miles City, Billings. Bowman, Missoula, the Yellowstone and in fact nine- tenths of the cities and points of interest in the territory. The Northern Pacific owns and operates C21 miles or.W per cent of the railroad mileage of Washington, its main line extending from the Idaho line via Spokane Falls, Cheney, Sprague. Yakima and Ellensburg, through the center of the territory to Tacoma and Seattle, and from Tacoma to Portland. No other trans-continental through rail line reaches any portion of Wash ington Territory. Ten days stop over privileges are given on Northern Pacific second class tick- ets at Spokane Falls and all points west, thus affording intending settlers an excellent oppor- tunity to see the entire territory without incur- ring the expense of paying local fares from point to point. The Northern Pacific is the shortest route from Paul to Tacoma by miles; to Seattle by 177 miles, and to Portland by 'S'4 correspondingly shorter, varying from one to two days, according to destination. No other line from St. Paul or Minneapolis runs through passenger cars of any kind into Idaho, Oregon or Washington. In addition to being the only rail line to Spok- ane Palls, Tacoma and Seattle, tlie Northern Pacific reaches all the principal points in North- ern Minnesota and Dakota, Montana, Idaho, Oregon and Washington.
