ToeerfllI disposition. ' As a-member of the
fc Baptist Church at Chester, into which he
was received by letter only a few months
ago, he impressed every one as being a
sincere Christian. He came to Chester
with high commendations from his former
church and pastor, and in no respect did
he disappoint his friends as a professed ad
vocate and exemplar of piety, temperance
and truth. It is a melancholy thought
that he was so unexpectedly called to ter
minate his earthly life when the future
here looked so full of joy and success. But,
for him, the change is a glorious one. He

Dear Sir: I was very negligent in try
ing the " Acme" Pulverizer bought of |
you in the Spring, as I had some mis
givings as to its adaptation to my rough
bottoms, which I broke early in the
spring and left very cloddy. Fully six
weeks after breaking I concluded to try
the " Acme." In this time the land was
overgrown with a heavy coat of grass
and weeds, and had become hard and
dry. As a matter of experiment, I put
the pulverizer at work, and I soon be
came convinced that I had the very im
plement for the- place. The " Acme"
most thoroughly pulverized the clods,
which were exceedingly rough and hard,
and every particle of the weeds and grass
were entirely cut up, and my land was
left smooth and in the most beautiful
order. I can now unhesitatingly pro
nounce the "Acme" Harrow a wonder

every farmer. I believe for preparing

It also gives the candidate a chance

not count the cost of feeding the can

The fortunate results of the late

largely brought about by the untiring

to call for complimentary conftnent.
