There is no weight on tho horses' necks; no tearing of canvas or straps, Lur there aru springs to relievo the strain caused by shrinkage; no choking at front, of elevators, for their is a relief take to prevent it. No other Binder has litis valuable device. Everything on the CHAMPION has been made as simple and substantial as possible. No other Harvester bas as good cutter bar and ritards, or aa many and as good knives, or as strong and adaptable reel, or as simple a method of driving the Binder, nor as good plan for squaring the butts of tho bundles. The CHAMPION Butter is unlike any other, and is superior to them all. The CU AM PION will entail ki lids of small grain that grow no matter in what condition; it is lighter draft than any other Harvester doing the same work; it is easily managed by any far uh r; it will cause less trouble and expense for repairs, it will make less delay in harvest time, and it will do more work aud be more durable than any other Harvester and Binder that is made.

CONSIDER!NU < ITV CONCERNS, Another Lien of the Matter ham Ilion Men Are I p ll Arms, Elf Hor tSfaiiffri rtf: Referring to the letter of the Md or-mirk Harvester Co. published in your Inst issue, please insert the following lines in order to illustrate the other side of the question. It is funny reading when Met 'ormick states: “VV hen Hie farmers call for relief McCormick is reach with a helping hand to come to their aid.’* The helping hand is extended to farmers using Met ormick binders in offering an attachment at sir, cash down with order; but Mel ormick agrees not to furnish the necessary wire, and most likely it will lie impossible for the farmers to obtain any wire at all localise tin* manufacturers of wire may combine’ with the twine men and both try to skin the fanners and divide the profit. At any rate McCormick's brotherly love for the farmers in calling for relief is at un end after collecting 815 for an attachment, probably at a profit of IM) per cent. tile fanners will not be able to use and therefore the relief will only come to McCormick’s treasury. Furthermore, the letter is ti bait to other farmers in need Of new binders, and likely some victims may be caught by it who never used any wire for binding. "“Midi fanners. however, who formerly were subjected to the annoyance of using wire for binding, as well as to tin* danger •iud losses in getting the broken win* mixed up with the straw, fodder, teed and grain, will never use wire again, no matter how low the price oI wire and how high th)* twine. They would sooner change their selfbitider to a harvester by taking off tie* binding attachment and substitute a platform arid table which any farmer could make himself at v«*ry little expem-e and bind bis grain with straw by hand. In this manner farmers could easily break up any combination adopted to raise the price of twine or wire beyond a JKJ-.ut which seems unreasonable. It is evident, however, that this season no such action is necessary, and reports about .scarcity in material for twine and the alarm about the twine trust is undoubtedly greatly exaggerated. Considerable twine is carried over ail through tin* country from last year, .and there will not bt* near as much required in I reel>om county as in former years. While it appears that less mamba and sisal twine is made than formerly, tile difference is made up by twine made from hemp liber raised iii this country. I his hemp twine may not be quite as strong as manilla lint it answers to the purpose. The undersigned have l>een offered such hemp twine at a figure to enable us to sell it at Iii cents and wa* are in hopes to b<* able to sell it even tor less, while manilla and sisal twine will sell at IO to I* cents. Though these prices do not seem to Is* out of reason, indications an* pointing to considerable lower prices on twine for tin* near future. It is almost certain that the liber from flax straw will soon be largely worked up for twine iii the Northwest, giving a supply ol material almost unlimited. Quite a number ol Herman farmers iii Freeborn count) will give the flax culture their attention this season. These men have worked up Hie Max liber in tin* old country, tin y understand it perfectly, aud thev claim they can furnish the cleaned ’ tiber at 5 cents per pound. > plan cries will spring up in every county, and Max tw ine fully as good as manilla can then be supplied iii retail at less than lo cents per pound, or else farmers can spin it themselves costing univ their labor in winter when they cannot employ their time to better advantage. We respectfully ask our farmer friends to consider tilt* above statements and not let them be influenced to detract from the merits of their machines which they found superior, by such mad efforts aud doubtful improvements as set forth in McCormick’s recent letter. Please bear iii mind that the Champion Binders and Mow ers, which we represent, do not require such mad efforts for popularity. Common sense alone will satisfy anybody not prejudiced that the late improvements un the Champion machines make them superior to all other makes of binders and mowers, while farmers who have used Champions for many years are satisfied that their old time* tried machines are still far more desirable than any other named binder or mower even ol the latest make. If you want a harvesting machine and want the most practical, durable, most easily managed and of lightest draft, buy a Champion of Yours Respectfully, Sieiiman A Horning, Albert Lea, Minn. Branches at Glenville and Twin Lakes. ttev. Mr. Ward Saji that \ovv-n-itiij * \n One Loot* There Cor Orient Iflr* Fart. The New York and Brooklyn Association of Congregational Churches held its spring meeting lust week, at tim Trinity Congregational church in Tremont. The New ^ ork Sun says there WW a discussion of “Tin* Modern Perspective of tin* Bible,' by the Rev, I)r. William Haves Ward of Newark and editor of the Independent. Mr, W ard said; ‘'The old view of the Bible was that it was till verbal plenary inspiration, .and therefore absolutely in-f.dlible, The traditions of thousands of years had held that the Bible was incapable of error, either historical or ethical. To-day, however, people are willing to listen to cool, logical discussions of Biblical questions. They now ask themselves if Isaiah really wrote Isaiah. There is already a split in tin* Presbyterian church on this very ground. 'The more advanced critics of tin* Bible, of whom Prof. Briggs is the chief exponent, say that many seientilie facts ar)* not borne out by the Bible, and that is so much the worse for the Bible. To-day tin* progressive christian weighs everything cand ally, and conies to conclusions in accordance with scientific facts. Nobody goes to the Bible for scientific information."

The old soldiers of the First were consolidated in companies A and II, numbering when we joined the regiment some 120 men, who all claimed to have seen four years service and I believe the boys told the truth.

Cooperative Associations. The Minneapolis Tribune finds an instructive article on “Cooperative Savings and Loan Associations in the last issue of Hie Quarterly Journal of Economics. The author, Seymour Dexter, savs that no form of direct cooperation among the wage earners of the United states is attracting more attention at the present time than the various associations grouped under this name. After a review of the principles and various plans of such concerns lie gives a condensed sketch ol their • u igin and growth in this country up to Mate. He holds that the economic benefits resulting to society from this form of cooperation, when properly conducted, can hardly bt* over-estimated, and that the influences which radiate from these associations in a community are elevating, while the results which they induce possess in a high degree the desirable characteristics of permanency. The author has no confldence in loan and building associations aspiring to become national in the extent of their business. Ile characterizes them as schemes which will prove in the end unsatistactory, if not disastrous, and which will unjustly cast odium upon the trite cooperative savings and loan associations. Quoting from an article in the Tribune describing the rapid growth of a corporation of thiclass, he contends that such concerns are, in fact,“corporations formed and conducted for purposes wholly different from the objects of the class of associations whose name they assume.’’ The subject has attracted great attention in St. Paul and Minneapolis, and throughout the stat e, the result being the passage of a bill by the legislature providing for a rigid inspection of the so-called national associations, which, it is hoped, will protect the people against their frauds and impositions. Boring for (his. How to Make Money. To save money is to make money. The common way of washing clothes on a washboard is growing out of favor fast. The Eclipse Washer will do the win k better, iii less time, and with no wear to the clothes; the savings will in a short time buy a machine. Used by hundreds of families in this county alone, a recommend of this wonderful machine is unnecessary, S. Reinsberg warrants them for two years. The Right Kind of A Justice Wanted. Discussing the kind of a justice of the peace needed in Hokah, the Chief fearlessly champions the rights of the people and with patriotic zeal presents their irresistible demands. It says: What we want is a man that knows law from a redltorse when lie sees it ami will give justice to whom justice is tine. It is not agreeable to 111 VV HUH! UfllUC *:    liitv .    ..... have a fellow decide acus© against you just be cause you hold his enmity. We want law and v ail’' you    . justice separated from suckers and redliorse. That is the point. Be Sure to Read Carefully. The Pioneer Meat Market has come to the front again fully stocked up with the choicest of all kinds of meat.

Nelson, 12-tf    Clark’s Grove. sr. Caul Globe. A good deal of sport lins been made of the scheme in the Kansas legislature to bore four deep holes iii different parts of the state. There was some reason in it if there are probabilities of striking natural gas, coal or other valuable substance. I,ess rational uses arc made of a good deal of public money in this state than in experimental deep borings in the geologically diverse parts of the state. Individuals have been riskingagood deal ot money in tests for natural gas in Freeborn county aud at Stillwater. I hey will do good service if they fully determine the question of such deposit in those sections, lf there is anything of value laid away by nature within reachable distance of the surface, it will not subserve its mission unless expensive Chances are taken.
