Vertid of the Beet i ourt
Washington, April 90.?The military
court of inquiry, investigating (?en
Miles'charges against the t?eef Mupplied
to the array during the war with Spain,
concluded its work Saturday.
The verdict of the court is that the
allegations which Con Miles made are
not sustained with reference to th?? re.
frigerated beef. There is direct criti?
cism of Gen. Miles for failing to
promptly bring to the attention of the
War Department the reports made to
him concerning bad beef.
The oourt finds the testimony conclu?
sive that both refrigerated beef and
oinned beef were in good condition
when delivered to the government and
continaed so until issued to troops, ex?
cept in special instances, where deter
i-ration was due to aociilontal condi
tions in transportation or to InflnunOM
of the tropical climate.

FARMERS SUPPLY STORE.
In fad we are here! With the
HARVESTERS and MOWERS loi ? season ol 1888.
The recognized perfect Machine tor Wheat and Hay Grow?
There are other machines in the market, but there is but one McCormick
Machine, and that is the best made or ?'?old.
We want every farmer interested in saving their whoator hay crop to in?
vestigate the advantages of these celebrated machines and do "themselves
justice in getting a McCormicV- Harvester or Mower for 1899, for while the
machines are the best made, the prices and terms are always satisfactory to
buyer.;. There is no disputing the fact that we sold more " McCormick" ma?
chines last year to the farmers in the surrounding counties than were sold of
all other makes combined. This is a startling fact, and there is a reason for
it, it is the best and most satisfactory machine made or sold.
We refei lo the following farmers who bought McCormick Machines lasl season and
who aw thoroughly |>? ? ? -i-- <l in every respect :
