N on have doubtless geed in the Associated Press dispatches that some one had succeed*^ in per* J feeling a simple device, to he quickly interehangoaule with the twine knotter j for binding grain, thin enabling lh** j farmer to use either twine or wire, by 1 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 fibres from which twine suitable for binding purposes is made. The enormous in-j crease of consumption of fibres (unless 1 some new* fibre should he discovered .suitable for this use) would necessarily in a few years put twine out of th** reach of the farmer, especially with the I present low* prices of grain. We hardly need tell you that it is McCormick who has perfected this device above referred to. It is practically our old wide-famed wire binding device much simplified, which is if jMissible even more simple than our simple knotter. It needs no further introduction to make it a recognized success the w    n    ^ thus add another laurel to tin- Mel or* J Lip-i fest ween Fort Worth aud Braver. I ma\ mick.

We hardly need attempt to instruct either you ’or the farmers as to its advantages. We only need refer to tile advantage of owning a machine that can successfully use either or both. We shall be able to supply this attachment to the farmer tor th** -mall sum of Sh"*, truly a small stun as insurance to make him master of th** situation. If there are any who do not wish to give an order for one now there are surely none who will not prefer a machine that can have it attached in future if the twine markets are excessively against them, which they are pretty sure to be unless they (the farmers) decide to use wire and reduce the consumption of twin**. Neither you nor your agents new] get excited or rattled for fear of it.-', materially reducing the price of twine for this season, for all the twine now made and all the fibres that can arrive in time to be manufactured into twine for this harvest will be needed to bind the crop of lvs‘.L T he fibres b>r making it have been purchased by the twine manufacturers at a price that will not stand much reduction, and if the crop matures favorably, us 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 figure it 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 reducing the time in which the available fibres may tie made into twine in time to save the crop of this year. Let every one know that this device is McCormick’s. The opposition will doubtless in their mad efforts to detract, promise everything for the future to be attached to their machines that shall equal McCormick’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 continuous 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 once ordered by the agent it must be paid for whether sold by him or not. we will not obligate ourselves to supply beyond the amount that we can secure in the short time that is left, as you will readily understand that it isasubject which we cannot 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 hear from you fully, giving your views, and anything in the way of information as to what your territory will likely demand so far as your judgment would go, followed by developments as they present themselves. This attachment will not be sent out on consignment, but iv*' guarantee it to be equal to our old wire binder. We will be ready to commence 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.

No other trails-coatmental through rail line reaches any portion of Wash Ington Territory. Ten days stop over privileges are given on Northern Pacific second class tickets at Spokane Falls and all points west, thus affording intending settlers an excellent opportunity Ut see the entire territory without incurring the expense of paying local fares from point topoint. The Northern Pacific is Hie shortestroute from ^t.

No other line from St. Paul or Minneapolis runs through passenger cars of any kind into Idaho, Oregon or Wast)ington. In addition to being the only rail line to Spokane Falls, Tacoma and Seattle, the Northern Pacific reaches all the principal points in Northern Minnesota and Dakota, Montana, Idaho, Oregon and Washington.

Editor Standard: The voting of $125 to buy up or bribe certain reporters reminds me of an old law of Moses, which provides that the people shall carry paddles to cover up their du ty tracks, (see Deuteronomy, Chap. xxiii, 13 14).
