There is no weight on the horses' necks; no tearing of canvas or straps, there are springs to relieve the strain caused by shrinkage; no choking at 1-or.l uf clevalors, for their is a relief rake to prevent it. No other Binder has Ihin valuable device. Everything on the. CHAMPION has been made as simple and hubritantial as possible. Xo other Harvester has as good cutter bar and guards, or as many and as good knives, or as strong and adaptable reel, or as sim- ple a method of driving the Binder, nor as good plan for squaring the butts of (ho bundles. The CHAMPION Butter is unlike any other, and is superior to them all. The C1IAMPION will cutnll kinds oCsmall grain that grow no inatterin what condition; it is lighter draft than any other Harvester doing the same work; it is easily managed by any farmer; it will cause less trouble and expense for repairs, it will make less delay in harvest time, and it will do more work and be more durable than any other Harvester and Binder that is made. THE WARDER, BUSHHELL OlESSNER COMPANY, SPRINGFIELD, OHIO.------HIAKUFACTURERS-------CH1CAOO, ILL. KeJVrring to the letter of the MeCor- mick Harvester Co. published in your last issue, please insert the lollowing lines in order to illustrate the other side of the question. It is funny read- in" when Md.'orniick states tlie fanners call lor relief McCwmick is> ready with a helping hand to come to their aid." The helping is ex- tended to farmers using McCormick binders in oll'ering an attachment at cash down with order; but MuCur- nnck agrees not lo furnish the m-ces- sary v.ire. and most likely it will be 1111- farmers to obtain any wire at all because the manufacturers of wire may combine nitli the twine men and both try to skin the tanners and divide tin- profit. At any rate Mi- Cormick's brotherly love for the fann- ers 111 calling for ix-liti' is at an end after collecting 81o for an attachment, probably at a prolit of 2m per cent, the lunuers will not be able to use and therefore the relief will only come to MeConuick's treasury. Furthermore, the letter is a bait to other farmer.-; in need of new binders, and likely some victims may be caught by it who never used any ii'ire for binding. Mich farm- ers, however, who lormeriy were sub- jected to the iiimoyanc'- of using wire lor binding, as well as to the danger and losses" in getting tin- broken wire mixed up nitli the straw, iced and grain, will never use ire again, no matter how low the price ul wire and how high the twine. They would souner change their selllmider to a harvester by taking off the binding at- tachment and substitute a plaitorm and table which any farmer could make himself at very little expen-e and bind his grain with straw by hand. In this manner farmers could easily break up any combination adopted tu raise the price of twine, or wire beyond a point which seems unreasonable. It is evident, however, that this season uu such action is necessary, and report.-, about scarcity in material for twine and the alarm about the twine trust is undoubtedly greatly exagger- ated. Considerable twine is carried over all through the country from hist >ear, and then- will not be near as much required in l-'reeboni county us in runner years. While it appears that less manifla and sisal twine is made than formerly, tin- difference is made up by twine made from hemp liber raised in this country. This hemp twine mav not be quite as strong as manilla but it answers to the purpose. The undersigned have been oll'ered such hemp tisiue at a figure to enable us to sell it at cents and we are in hopes tu be able to sell it even 1'or less, while Manilla and sisal twine will sell at 10 to 11 cents. Though these prices do not seem to be out of reason, indi- cations are pointing to considerable lower prices on twine for the near future. It is almost certain that the liber from llax straiv will soon be large- ly worked up for twine in the .North- west, giving a supply of material al- most unlimited. Quite a number of German farmers in Freeboru county will give the llax culture their atten- tion "this season. These men have woiked up the llax liber in the old country, they understand it perfectly, and they claim they can furnish tin- cleaned "liber at 5 cents per pound, ginneries will spring up in every county, and llax twine fully as good as manifla can then be supplied in retail at less than 10 cents per pound, or else farmers can spin it themselves costing only their labor in winter when they cannot employ their time to better ad- vantage. respectfully ask our farmer friends to consider the above state- ments and not let them be influenced to detract from the merits of their machines which they found superior, by such mad efforts and doubtful im- provements forth in McCormick's recent letter. Please bear in mind that the Champ- ion and Moners. which we re- present, do not require such mini tfforts for popularity. Common sense alone will satisfy anybody not prejudiced that the late improvements on the Champion machines make them superior to all other makes of binders and mowers, while farmers who have used Champ- ions for many years are satisfied that their old time" tried machines are still far more desirable than any other named binder or mower even of 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'Kespectfully, SIKUMAX HORNING, Albert Lea. Minn.

The New York and Brooklyn Asso- ciation of Congregational Churches held its spring meeting last week, at the Trinity Congregational church in Tremont. The -New York Mm says there was a discussion of-The Modern Perspective of the by the Kev. Ur. William Hayes Ward of Newark and editor of the Independent. Mr. Ward said: '-'The old view of the Bible was that it was all verbal plenary in- spiration, and therefore absolutely in- fallible. 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 coul, logical discus- sions of Biblical questions. They now ask themselves if Isaiah really wrote Isaiah. There is already a split in the Presbyterian church on this very ground. The more advanced critics of the Bible, of whom Prof. Briggs is the chief exponent, say that many scientific facts are not borne out by the Bible, and that is so much the worse for the liible. To-day the progressive Christian weighs everything can-fully, and comes to conclusions in accordance with scieutiiic facts. Nobudy goes to the Bible lor scientific inhumation." The Itev. .loliu L. scndder of Jersey City spoke on the subject of "The Mission of the Church to the Lapsed Masses." Among those present were the llevs. S. .1. N. T.iit. Dr. Lyman Abbott, Dr..I. (J.

Yours Truly, NELSON 8ORENSON. 307 East Broadway. How to JIake Money. To save money is to make money. The common way of washing clothes on a washboard is growing out of favor fast. The Kclipse Washer will do the work better, in less time, and with no wear to the clothes; the savings will in i short time, buy a machine. Used by mudreds of families in this county alone, a recommer.d of this womleiful machine, is unnecessary. S. Ueinsberg warrants them for two years. The Right Kind of A Justice Wanted. Discussing the kind of a justice, of tlio peace needed, in Ilokah, the Chief fearlessly champions the rights of the people- and with patriotic zeal presents their irresistible demands. It says: What ne want is a man that knows law from a reilhori-e when he sees it anil will civc justice 1o whom justice is tine. It is not MjreeaMr to a fellow deride a case against yon just be- caii'-e yon liolil Ills enmity. We want law ami juslice separated from suckers and redhorse. That is the point.

NKLSON, 12-tf Clark's Grove. JJoriiig for Gas. St. I'aul Globe. A good deal of sport has been made of the scheme in the Kansas legislature to boro four deep holes in different parts of the state. There was some reason in it if there are probabilities of striking natural gas, coal or other valuable, substance. Less rational uses arc made of a good deal of public money in this state than in experi- mental deep borings in the geologically diverse parts of the state. Individuals have been riskingagood (leal ot money in tests for natural gas in Freeborn county and at, Stillwater. They will do good service if they fully determine the question of such deposit in those sections. 1 f there, is anything of value laid away by nature within reachable distance of the surface, it will not sub- serve its mission unless expensive chances are taken.
