Then it was that Nichols & Shepard, of Battle Creek, Mich, .inventedand began novel style of Grain Thresher and Separator, which they very appro priately named the “Vibrator.'’ It was a revolution in Thresh ing Machines, and from a small beginning of five machines in 1S5S they soon reached a pro duct of 1,000 yearly. Their Vibrator drove the “ End less Apron” machine out of mar ket, and all other makers copied it as closely as they dared. To day all Threshing Machines of any reputation or merit use the principles of the old Vibrator. Nichols & Shepard have con tinued in the business without change of name, location, or management; and during the past three years have brought out and developed another new Threshing Machine for grain and seeds, as superior to all existing machines as their former was to the ‘ Endless Apron.’ They name this new and improved Thresher and predict as great a revolution in the trade, and as complete success over all rivals as they had thirty-one years ago.

Charlestown,Jefferson County, West Ya. June O.tSSO. I INTERESTING LETTER FROM HON. A. M. KEILEY. lie Tells the Ilramlnteal Story of Eden. Correspondent of the Richmond State. I find in your issue received to-day a number of maxims respecting women, ta ken ‘from the sacred books of India,’ one of which reads as follows : "It was at the prayer of a woman that the Creator pardoned ruau. Cursed be lie who forgets it." The origin, or to be more accurate, the occasion which gave rise to this maxim forms one of the most charming of the legends of Braminisra. I wish I could repeat it as I heard it from the lips of a pious Bramiu, but in default of that it may interest you even in the prosaic garb in which alone, I can hope to clothe it. It is the Hindoo story of the Fall of our First Parents, and proceeds thus : When God created the first pair he placed them in the island of Ceylon, of whose surpassing loveliness in that spring time of the earth one may easily be pur suaded who sees it to-day, after millen iums of decline, still the most enchanting spot on which the eyes of wandering men are privileged to rest. Then it was a royal garden filled with everything that the needs or tastes or just longings of the human heart could desire; whose fruits, now nameless and un known ; whose flowers, uneatalogued even in imperial gardens; whose birds, without counterparts in the forests of to day, surpassed all that men have ever known of deliciousness and beauty. All their heart could long for was there in profusion—all that their lives could need was given without toil and enjoyed with out peril; and the benign Creator asked of his happy creatures but one tribute— contentment. “Stay you here in this earthly paradise I have prepared for you alone, and ye shall live forever in undivided happiness and perfect peace; but stay ye here. The command was easy to obey, and ......... .......»!.« not* imm. .V,. .......j .-.- | I oil their lives in this island of delights without a wish unfulfilled or a need un answered. But one day Adam surprised his part ner with the statement that as ravishing as was their home he had seen from its hills across a narrow strait forests even more fair and brighter flowers and trees more luxuriantly laden than those about them, hoping that her curiosity thus piqued would lead her to countenance, if not commend, a thought to wander that had sprung in his own breast. But Eve was silent. Again and again he told her of the fairer land beyond the sea ; but she an swered his appeal, now often made in words, by reminding him that the Crea tor had only asked one thing of them— that they should rest where they were— and that nothing could excuse neglect of so simple a command. But Adam persisted, saying: “How will He know it we are merely absent for a few hours, for the strait is narrow which lies between us and the delightful land beyond—and since he placed us here be has never returned and probably never will return to inquire about us.” But Eve refused to disobey. And so, day by day, the controversy went on until Eve, wearied with Adam’s persistence, one day replied : “But how can we go. We are surrounded by water, and if we seek this more beautiful shore we shall surely l»e lost.” But Adam answered : “Not so, I have already gone nearly across, and it is very shallow ami easily compassed. Come.” But she would not. Nevertheless, it came to pass finally, that wearied with his importunities, Eve yielded, and one morning as the snu was rising they start ed to cross the strait that severed them from the mainland, Adam eager and triumphant, Eve reluctant and afraid. In the middle of the chanm ’ her courage* failed, and she would return, but Adam reassured her and grasping her in his arms bore her to the farther shore. But no sooner had they set foot on it than the magnificent flowers and fruits which had tempted them were found to be far more remote from the shore than they had supposed, ami they perceived that not half their work was done. .But the beauty of the forbidden land was as seductive as ever and they resolutely set toward the distant groves. And now the sun was rising high in the heavens and their feet became wearv, and the growing heat began to oppress them ; when sudden y Eve cried : “Oh, Adam, look! Do you not see that the forests are constantly receding before us, and surely we are no nearer to them now, after many hours of toil, than when we first set foot here. Let us return at once, before it is too late. Mayhap we may yet reach our home before our diso bedience is discovered." And Adam saw she spake truly. And so, fearing and downcast, they turned to retrace their steps, and lo! as they turned, the Avenging Angel, with a sword of flame, confronted them and cried, with a terrible voice: “Prepare to die, ye disobedient. I am sent to punish you." And thereupon Adam fell on his knees before the terrible Angel of God and cried out: “The woman is without fault. It was 1 who temptetl her to nrenK me com mancl, and she resisted long and ardently, until 1 overpersuaded her. Kill me, but spare her.” And the angel answering said : "It is right. Why should she die for your fault? You alone shall suffer.” But there upon Eve prostrated herself at the feet of the angel and weeping, said: "Oh, mighty Angel of Justice, my fault is as great. Let us suffer together. Even if you spare me, what is my life without him, and sparing me it will only be for a few days, for surely I shall fol low him unto death as I cling to him in life.” And a great light shone around them | and the white wings of the Angel of God’s mercy were over them and a voice ol heavenly sweetness was heard saying : “For her great love I spare not only her life but his. They shall suffer and all who come after them, hut the love of the woman has saved their lives. They shall not now die.” Thus was it that "at the prayer of a woman the Creator par doned man, and cursed be he who forgets it.” A. M. K. Cairo, April 23d, 1889.

He suggests « an appropriate time for relieving him a day convenient for his successor as well as him self, the close of the fiscal year. The letter of resignation is manly and of elevated tone, recognizing the propriety of a change in bo important an ofiice which shall allow the Administration t'' be represented by one in political accord with itself. The entire good nature of the letter and the spirit of accom * modation shown by the writer come as a fitting termination of an incumbency which has been mo*t creditable to Mr. McGraw. His office has been well administered and his record at headquarters is first class. All which shows again that an earnest partisan is not unfitted to be a good public officer.
