The Prairie Sickle Guard a Great
Resale ef Practical Teata of a Stw
Reek Island lavestiss-lomp. t
Ittve Trials. '
A new invention which is the product
of Rock Island genius is the Prairie sickle
guard. To O. Mischief belongs the
credit of this invention. It was sub'
jected to three successful competitive
trials on the meadow at Seventh street
and Eighth avenue on SaturJay, Monday
and Tuesday, respectively, last. There
was an immense gathering of eentlemen
present on the three occasions to witness
the test mowing. The competing mower
was a flrst-claes new one of Standard
make. Mr. Mischler thoroughly demon
Btrated the efficacy of his invention in i
manner most convincing and pleasing to
the people present by attaching the Prai
rie sickle guards to an Empire mower
oyer 20 tears old. which he took from a
scrap pile at Milan, and proved to the
entire satisfaction of the spectators that
the old Empire fitted with the Prairie
sickle guard could do better mowing than
the most modern mower on the market.
cutties much cleaner and closer and with
less driving powers than necessary to
drive, the new mower. The old Empire
mower following in the wake of the new
mower cut stubble 1 inch shorter,
and would cut the fine Buffalo
grass which would slip through the sickle
of the new mowers. One of the great
merits of the Prairie sickel guard is that
it is seir-sharpeniDg. The sicfeel on the
old Empire mower was as trenchant after
three days mowing as when first at
tached, while with the same amount of
mowing the sickle on the new mower was
reground four times. Another great ad
vantage the Prairie sickle guard has, over
that of any other mower on the market
is, that the lower knives can be left glass
hard in tempering thereby greatly ens
hancing the cutting qualities owing to
the fact that no rivets are used to attach
knives to the guard. The lower knives
can be rep'aced or removed instantly
without tools owing to an ingenious dc
vice which holds them solidly in place
New lower knives fan be replaced in the
field izietantly witbovt the use of tools,
thereby avoiding the loss of lime so val
uable in the haying season. Another
great supariority of the -Prairie
sicfele guard is the fact that the
guard is so constructed that it will
repulse and throw out any bard substance
it may come in contact with. su-h as
wire, and without injury to the sickle
and guard, while it is a well known fact
fist it will greatly damage any other
AH parties present at the respective
trials cheerfully signed their names to
list heartily indorsing and attesting to the
superiority of the work cone by the old
Empire mower fitted with the Prairie
sickle guard over any other work done by
a rrover they had ever seen.
The Prairie sickle guard can be aV
tacnea to any make or mowers, new or
old, with results not attained by any
other mower on the market. Parties in
tertsted would do well to call and ex
amine the competing mowers a Messrs.

I desire once more to bear mv testi
mony to the value of Allcock's Porous
Plasters. I have used them for 25 years
past, and can conscientiouly commend
them as the best external remedy that
have known. Years sgo, when thrown
from a carriage and seriously injured, I
gave them a thorough trial. In a very
short time the pain that I was suffering
disappeared, and within a wetk I was
entirely relieved. On another occasion,
when suffering from a severe cough,
which threatened pulmonary difficulties.
which I was recommended to go to Flor
ida to relieve, I determined to test the
plasters aga:n. I applied them to my
chest ana between the shoulder blades,
and in less than a fortnight was entirely
cured. On still another occasion, when
suffering from an attack of rheumatism
in the shoulder to such an extent that I
could hardly raise my arm, I again re
sorted to the plasters, and within a very
few days the rheumatism entirely disap
peared, l have them constantly by me.
whether at home or abroad. My family
as well as myself have found them to be
a sovereign remedy, both for external
and internal troubles. I never had but
one kidney difficulty in my life, and the
application of the plasters cured me in a
week. I desire, as I said before, to bear
my testimony in a public way to their
efficacy, and I know of no better way of
doing it than by giving you my personal
