ON' THE ROAD TO ST LOUIS,
July 23d, 1877.
MK. BATCUELOR:—You may think it
strange to receive this but I thought it,
my duty, although I have no respect
for you or any other man in the north
west. will find your boat half way
between Maiden Rock and Stockholm,
oa the Wisconsin side ot the lake.
The man I sold the boat to is a Swede
that lights the Government lanterns.
He is a bachelor. You can easily find
him. His name in Swede would be the
same as Deer in English. You will be
sure to find th« boat if you go after it
and if you wish to find me
just come down to Kentucky and I will
settle all accounts at the point of the
bayonet. I will be up to Red Wing
next summer on a pleasure trip with
my wife. I would neyer have told you
where the boat was if I had sold it to
a white man. I hope you will get this.

P. S.—I write this

where if. he does not forget. W. S.
Messrs. Batchelor went after their
boat and found it according to diree
tions. The sale spoken of seems to
have been peculiar, inasmuch as no sale
was made. Smith stayed all night
with the Swede, telling him his name
was Johnson. In the morning, after
making a failure to trade the boat for a
watch he noticed hanging on the wall, he
stole the watch, leading the boat. The
Swede followed him to Stockholm, but
he escaped across to Lake City ancl
took the train for the east. Then,
wishing to ghe an exhibition of cheek
seldom equalled, he wrote the above
letter, which is nearly equal to one re
ceived some years ago, by Mr. Bennett,
at that time proprietor of the Tepaton
ka hotel in this city. In those days
there was a goodly quantity of game in
this vicinity, and late in the Fall a man
stopped at the hotel with a gun and a
lot of traps, and told Mr. Bennett*he
wished to board with him through the
winter was going to hunt and trap, &c.,
and would pay him his board in fur. As
spring approached the trapper was
missing frcm his place at the tabic one
day, and a short time altei'ward Mr. B.
received a lettet us follows:
a small office, not fitted up for euch
werk, succeeds in obtaining the printing,
it is obliged to send away to haye the
entire work done. A Ramsey county
paper has just paid a Chicago office
$400 for such work instead o( having
that sum paid for stock and type setting
at home. Just what rule should be ap
plied to such eates is not easy to de
termine but it seems as if -in office
might reasonably be content to bid on
work that it can do, letting alone work
which is entirely out of reach.—Repub
The above is the wiy that Jennison
has of easing his conscience about that
tax list business. The Republican is
the only office in this county where the
County Board would be likely to get the
conveniences that they want from time
to time and we hope they will bear that
in mind. Jennison goes on to explain
in the above what an amount of "type
has been lying idle in their office for
years. We think, for that, matter, that
some of the rest of their office stock has
been idle too, but we keep say nothing
about that, as Jennison don't take any
pains to tell the innocent and unsophisti
cated, that every time a paper sets up a
tax list it more than gets pay enough to
buy all of that terrible amount jf stock

The Zumbrota Independent reprodu
ces our statement that we did not know
what Mitchell's bid was for the tax list,
until all the bids were opened, and ours
found to be the lowest. It formed a
well deserved and conclusive defense of
the County Auditor, the members of
thetCounty Board and all others against
an insinuation from a certain quarter.
The Independet says: "We should
have had the sense to have kept still
about this tax list business if some one
else hadn't opened up." That is en
couraging. When Mitchell shall have
acquired "the sense to have kept still,"
he will have reached the acme of intel
ligence possible for him.
A Successful Twine Binder.
We spent Tuesday afternoon in a
wheat field of Mr. A. W. Etter, about
twelve miles from this city and a mile
west of Etter station on the railroad,
whither we went with others to witness
the operation of a combined harvester
and binder manufactured by Mr. N. C.
Thompson, of Rockford, Illinois. This
is an entirely new machine throughout,
ST. LOUIS, May 1st.
Mil. BfcAStEiT:—You are probably
aware that I boarded at your house last
Winter, and was to pay my board in fur.
I have now got as fur as St. Louis, and
if that ain't.fur enough, I will go fur
ther. Kvcr your«,

The conductor will mail it some-1 not used in other harvesters and binders,
several mechanical principles
and is, we believe, pre-eminently a suc
cess. It binds with twine, tying a hard,
gquare knot which cannot be drawn or
slipped Is very simple in its construc
tion, not likely to get out of order, and
does its work regularly and unfailingly.
It is not possible for us to describe it in
detail in a newspaper article, but we
endeavor to convey art idea of it and its
manner of working.
First, we ill speak of the harvester
as that deserves especial attention al
most a* much as the bnjder, in th 't it
possesses a number of ieW ami ma'i
tori&US features. It cuts a svv ath five
feet six inches broad, cutting clean and
gathering every thing. This machine
is hung in chains, which may be length
ened or shortened by winding up on
an iron windlass toshorten or unwind
ing to lengthen. By this process the
machine is raised or lowered to suit the
height and condition of the grain. This
opeiation is performed with two small
iron hand-spikes, one end of which is
inserted in orifices in the windlass alter
nately, and it can be done by one man.
When the proper height is attained the
wind.lagg is secured in its position by a
key* flhe reel is, also, different from
Any o! her we ever saw, and is suscepti
ble of being raised or lowered, or thrown
forward or backward. Indeed, it may
be readily made to assume any position
in which it can become desirable to car
ry it, and will work with unfailing reg
ularity in either.
For these reasons and because the
reaper will operate at any required in
clination, so that the points oF the sickle
guards may bo carried closo to the
ground, if necssary, to run under and
pick np fallen grain, wo belies that
this reaper may DO efficiently used is
any field of iTmin. i'« nvittpM w'u L
condition. seems tc us that what it
wjjl not cut qitn .only he eiifcw\itl
that of the elevator, under the gentle
pressure of four flexible strips of steel,
which are curved so as to direct it to
the binder. A 'lever, within reach of
the driver enables him to move the ele
vating bands backward or forward, so
as to deliver the grain to the binder in a
manner that y\ ill insure its being bound
ia the right place, whether the straw
long or short.
The inclination of the binding table
JUI of itself, insuic the slipping of
the grain down to th* binder, but in
this machine nothing is left, to chance.
Working througn slotb in this table are
two feed dogs, each having three prongs
about ten inches apart and working alter
nately. Rising to the top of the blots
they .ire thrown up and the prongs pro
jected through the grain, which is borne
down againbt them by the flexible steel
fet:ips already described. Passing down
to tiie bottoms ot the blots and carrying
the grain with them, these feed dogs
drop below the table, ascend to the
tops of the slots, and are again pro
jected up through the table to receive a
new supply of grain and carry it down
to the binder. Tne grain is crowded
down by the feed dogs ajrainst one
prong or spoke of a four pronged wheel,
and, when the quantity accumulated
there becomes tufficient for a bundle,
the pionged wheel springs outward, per
forming an eighth revolution. Iiibtant
ly tb° feed dogs stop iind a giain shield
is projected through A blot in the table,
separating the grain to be tied from
that still coming from the elevator, and
from this shield the cord-arm is thrown
forward to carry the cord to the tyer.
The tying we cannot describe intel
ligibly. Let it suffice to say that the
band is tied in a hard square knot and
the twine cut off. The pronged wheel
then makes another eighth revolation,
throwing up another prong to receive
the next bundle, the cord-arm and shield
return beneath the table, the feed dogs
resume work, and the process of mak
ing another sheaf has begun. The fin
ished bundle being at the same time
dropped gently to the giound. This is
the whole operation. It curious,
beautiful, deliberate. No hurrying, no
throwing or scattering of the giain, but
careful, clean, good work. The bun
dles are of uniform size and cannot be
otherwise, for the pronged wheel will
not spring till grain enough for a bun
dle is crowded against it, and this it
that regulates the operations of the
binder. It is not dependent on the mo
tion of the "bull-wheel." Even if the
strings breaks, unless the end is drawn
out of the end of the cord arm, only one
bundle is missed, for the cord-arm will
faithfully deliver the end of the string
to the tyer every time, if it has it.
The machine is ingenioua and beauti
ful. It was drawn by a span of light
horses, and cut five acres from half-after
one till five o'clock, one swath hem* a
mile long, and the hoises did not sweat,
although the day was hot, more than
teams drawing em.pty wagons. We
must not omit to mention, either, that
the grain general'y was very heavy and
the ground rough and unevea, several
gullies beiug crossed by the much ne
and two mounds (of the old mound
builders) cut over. Again, the bun
dles were not only uniform in size but
tightly bound- We compared a number
of them with band-bound bundles pick
ing both up at random, ssd in every in
stance the machine Lound weJe trie
tightest. We have a bundle in the of
fice which we caught up and shook, and
then we took up and shook in the same
Eiauasr ti Iwad, bound bundle. The
latter fell to pieces and \vc left it ip
