machinery for elevating tho grain to the binding table is admitted to bo the best in Tho Osborne takes a very wide over six and for this reason is capable of covering much more ground in a given time than the Adams French or most other The bind ing of the Osborne was closer than that ot the other machines and its delivery of bundles was inferior only to that of tho Adams Either of these if capable of doing as good work in all kinds and reasonably fair conditions of grain as they did last Monday aro worthy of high recommendation and are certain to find sale among grain raising They kept con

quit recently from at and have located and btii houses in They are sobe industrious with wh have hail their physical constitution undermined by work in tho healt destroying wiro manufactories and havo come to Kos siuh County to build a home am to regain lost Bu in an evil hour those devils incai the lightning rod peared and liy their peculiar santanical nnd powoi drew out of the newcomers a cor sent to have their new houses roddc for protection against lightning The peddlers estimated that th rods of each building would cos not to exceed and this seeming a reasonable amount to pay a verbti agreement was entered into at tha But and hero is wher the swindle comes iu the contrac book was now produced by tli peddlers and the unsuspecting settlers wore requested to sign i printed and written order and agree ment merely as a matter of form you The peddlers hat judged their victims and down went the signatures without an examination of the terms of tin contract and without a suspicioi that everything was not just as thi peddlers had Tin contracts gave the peddlers thi right to judge as to what length o rod should bo of course placed the purchasers entirely a heir as Measurements were taken and the announcement was made to th astounded Swedes that the of each house would amount t nearly A righteous resistance vas made to this outrageous jeeding and tho peddlers were in lucod by threats and the dangerous lemonstrations of their victims to desist from any attempt to place their rods in They ac cordingly threw their merchandise on the ground and left with athreal o bring suit in the United States Now these are but two of the cores of similar outrages perpotrat icl against honest but unsophisticat id citizens of this and neighboring and it does seem that some ounishmeut should be meted out to he beings are parrying on the windling If there is 110 ither way to punish them we should advise a resort to muscular argu It may be argued that people who are unwise enough to sign apers without an examination cau ot expect the public to re Iresa their but this ule ought not to be applied to its ullest extent to all tho foreign born immigrants who little of he devilish
