.THE BROTHERHOOD OF
By F. S. Sullivan
When I read the daily papers
of the doings of "our boys'! ,1
can almost , smell . the battle
smoke, and hear tbe awful noise
of 'monstrous guns abooming
along' tbe battle line, and my
rheumatiz gets better and I read
on, feeling fine. I can see our
lines advancing with bayonets all
set, I tan see our colors flying
o'er ground that's slippery wet
with the blood of slaughtered
Prussians and Bulgars and of
Turks, and my heart keeps beat
ing faster, until it tbumus and
jerks. I can hear the shell
a screeching, see the airplanes
in the sky, and see tbe bombs
a dropping from somewhere up
on high. I used to think that
Europe was faraway indeed, and
tbe people who inhabit it of dif
ferent sect and creed, and a dif
ferent set of morals from us
that's on this side, but the war
has brought this truth to me.

prayer, and a short address by

Cemetery the G. A. R. services
were held. Mr. Byrns was one
of the oldest citizens of the coun

ore his death was active for one
of hisyears. A few months ago
when it became evident that his
health was failing, he went to
Louisiana with the hope of rt
gaining it, but without avail.

John Deere Kaffir Header
For Kaffir Corn, Milo Maize,
Sorghum, Feterita, and Other
The knives cutoff the stalks
at an angle; This is belter
than cutting squarely, as less
power is required, and the
knives last longeron account
of less wear.
John Deere Kaffir Header
knives are special high carbon
crucible steel and are especi
ally designed for this work.
Its construction and the lo
cation of the John Deere Head
er on the wagon' are such that
the heads fall directly onto
the carrying chain as soon as
cut. This places them in the
right position to be elevated
promptly. It means rapid work because, the direction the
heads are moying does not have to be changed by the header.
The John Deere is mounted on a pivot at the rear end
practically at height of top of wagon box.
But little power is required to operate it, as drawing mid
mounting pivots are oh a common center and there is no
change in relative positions of working parts when it is ad
justed to cut shorter stalks. '
' The knives grasp the beads, cutting them off as they fall
'back onto the elevator..- I Tbey(are j,hen' elevated with an easy

heads of unequal height. "
The speed of cutting knives and both upper and lower
chain are the same. . There is no tendency to drag or break
tbe stalks, and the strain on tbe machine is evenly distributed.
There are nrt corners into which the beads may drop and
collect. s Choking up The John Deere Header is paactically
impossible . '.'.-, '..
