THIS TIE, with the HOOP, complete, weighs no d more than the usual rope used in baling cotton, and renders an allowance for tare unnecessary. It is the only Tie requiring no slack while putting on, and so perfect that the necessity for heavy boops, to make up for deficiencies in the Tie, is entirely obviated. In this Tie the hoop bears evenly across its whole width, ] thus taking advantage of the entire strength of the iron, and there are no thin edges or sharp corners to w cut the hoop. It cannot be put on wrong, and does u not require over one-fourth of an inch slack to admit of insertingshe pin. a ByU using the " UNINERSAL TIE," planters can avoid the frequent loss of Cotton from broken bales; also heavy mending bills, which result from imperfect ties and mising ropes. The following letter, dtdressed to the agents of the s maker, at Savannah, Ga., by a gentleman who has used over twenty thousand, is sufficient evidence of the es timation in which these Ties are held: OFrICE OF THE CENTRAL COTTON PRESS, t Savannah, May 27, 1867. F Messrs. F. W. Sims & Co., Agents for Dillon's " Uni- t, vernal Tie," Savannah : Dctar Sirs--In my business of compressing Cotton, Ic have had occasion to examine closely all the various Ties for iron bands used in baling Cotton, and take a pleasure in testifying to the superiority, over all oth- i1 ers, of the " Universal Tie." It is as easily adjusted t and is MUCH STRONGER than any other Tie. A Tie that is not good at the Press is not good at the - plantation, as nearly all the Cotton is compressed at the ports, and a weak Tie must then be replaced by a good one, at the expense of the planter. 1 have never seen one of your Ties break, thongh I pitched a bale ( of Cotton secured by them out of a second story to the ground, without any break to the fall. Under these circumstances I unhesitatingly recom mend the " Universal Tie" to every planter, as combin ing the greatest simplicity with unequalled strength. n S. W. WIGHT, C Manager Central Cotton Press Co., Savannah. In New York, this tie is much preferred to any other. 0 The Fire Insurance Companies of that city- have given this Tie a decided preference over others, by insuring Cotton with the " Universal Tie" at :3!l less than the regular rate. They assert that many of the other Ties are no bettcr than rope, as they have proved in the many fires taking place in New Y'ork. The " Universal 'lie" can be ,old by the pound or ton as cheaply as the heavy hoops and less perfect Ties. Each and every Tie is warranted perfect.

(4ULLETT'S PATENT I31PROYED STEEL BRUSH COTTON GINS. HIS GIN is made under the patents granted to B: SD. Gullett, of Aberdeen, Miss., in 1853; was for m'erly manufactured by Gunnison, Chapman & Co., of New Orleans, and Beckett & Tindall, of Aberdeen, Miss., and is now made only by the Mystic River Hard ware Manufacturing Company, under the personal-sun nervision of Mr. B. D. Gullett, the patentee. The peculiar advantages of this Gin are: First. The quantity of cotton ginned in a given time is much greater than by any other gin of an equal number of saws. A gin of eighty saws turns out ten. bales per day. Second. It separates from the cotton more dust and' motes and leaves it clearer froem. nap-than any other' gin made. Third. The ect. of the steel brush is to straighten out the lint-remoring all the kinks and knots-canus ing it to undergo a partial carding process. Fourth. The roll cannot be broken by over-feeding. It does not "spew." Fifth. It is made in a superior style of wo, sman ship, strong and substantial; with iron ends. lvery one is tested before being sent from factory. lo. L. & J.
