SQUARING ACCOUNTS. E. R. Pritchard, who contributes this queer story to the Arkansaw Traveller, vouches for it as a literal fact, and no fancy sketch: Tom Robinson was an old-school Presbyterian ; and so far as outward observances went, his life conformed strictly to the rules laid down by the church discipline. His Sabbath began with the going down of the sun on Saturday night, ana lasted until midnight of Sunday. He wasaustere, bigoted and hypocritical. He had one prayer which he had used, without change or rest, night and morning in his home, and on Sundays in the church, for at least twenty-five years. In fact, Tom was a machine Christian, a sort of pious automaton; he had spent a good deal of time ascertaining his routine churchly duties, and these hedischarged in a neverfailing, drop-a-nickle-in-the-slot sort of fashion. He kept a sort of book account with the Almighty, and took care to keep a fair-sized credit on his side of the ledger. But Tom had one weakness?he would trade horses; and it goes without saying that no Christian has anv business to ever trade horses. Tom's method of squaring accounts, that is, of easing his conscience in his horse deals, was certainly original. He used to put his lies against the other fellow's, ana call it even. Whenever he got wofully cheated, which happened not infrequently, he very freely and frankly forgave the fellow who had gotten the best of him, and then laid low and waited for ducks; and, as a rule, it was not long before he found a chance to get even. On a certain occasion, however, Tom traded boraes with a brother deacon in the chaieh,and waxed it to him to the tune of a hundred* dollars or more. The deacon, who had got thwworst of the trade, went to the minister aboat it, and finally the matter was brought before the board of sessions, and Tom was hauled up on trial forconduct unbecoming a church member and a Christian. When it came his turn to testify, Tom slowly arose, and, addressing the moderator, said: "Mr. Moderator and Gentlemen: To give you the straight of the thing, I'll have to go back 'bout five years." Here there was a visible commotion among the board, and the plaintiff coughed violently and got very red in the face. Resuming, Tom said: "'Bout five years ago come next complantin', I was one day goin' over to Adaqas's miil, with a grist, when who should I meet but Deacon Wilson, there. [Here he nodded toward the plaintiff.] I was drivin' a spankin' three-year-old colt that I had hitched up for 'bout the first time, alongside of its mother, as steady an old mare as I ever pulled a line over. Well, the deacon was ridin' a mighty likely-lookin' critter hisse'f. I looked at his horse an' he looked at mine, and the first thing I knowed he bantered me for a trade. I got down outen the wagon an' looked at his horse all over purty keerful like, an' I says: 'Deacon, your horse's eyes are bad ; fact is, he's moon-eyed,'says I. 41 'Not by a blamed sight, he ain't,' says the deacon. 'That horse's eyes are as sound as yours. You're mistaken for once,' says he. "Well," continued Tom, "I didn't suppose the deacon would lie to me, a brother in the church, and so we traded. I took the horse home," said Tom, raising his voice a little, "an' he went stone blind in less'n a month." He paused a moment here to watch the effect of his words on the jurors, and then continued: "I found out afterwards that the horse had been goin' blind every dark of the moon for a year; an' that Deacon Wilson, the plaintiff in the case, kept a goose-quill and a bottle of fine salt in the stable, an' every time he took the critter out he blowed its eyes full of salt tocutthegum offen its eyes, so'syou couldn't see there was anything the matter < with 'em. Now, brethren,"inquired Tom, persuasively, 'Mid I squeal? Did I come befprelbeu>fflrfcff>?with a complaint against Brother Wilson an' try to get him ousted an' disgraced before the whole community? No, I forgave him like a man and a brother ought ter do. 1 snowed the time'd come when I could git even. The Lord generally brings things out right to those who try to do His will." He sat down amid a slight but subdued < - murmur of applause. The plaintiff, or more properly speaking the complainant, had already stated his side of the case, so ; the board of moderators had only to request both the parties before them to retire , while they made up their decision. Half an hour later it was announced, and was, in substance, as follows: "We find that the charges of cohduct unbecoming a Christain, which were preferred against Brother Thomas Robinson, of this church, by Brother Deacon Britton S. Wilson, also a member of this church, to'be not sustained by any evidence which was put before this board. We, therefore, dismiss this case, and extend to Brother i 'Robinson the right hand of fellowship, and assure him that he still has our sympathy, and that our confidence in him as a true and faithful Christian Remains unimpaired. We further find brother Wilson, the complainant in this case, upon his own admission, to have been guilty of practicing a deceit on a brother church member, , and so recommend his beiug held to trial for the same at the next regular session of | this body." ( A GOOD JOKE ON MAHONE. Previous to the recent election, Messrs. i Cheadle, of Indiana, and Brumm, of Pennsylvania, were invited by General Mahone to stump the State of Virginia in his interest. They had an appointment at the Court House, in Cumberland county, which has a very heavy negro majority ; i and the Democrats made no attempt to meet them, supposing it would be a hopeless case to make any contest there. So i me iwu xveyuuiiutus, uiuue, auurcaseu u very large negro assembly, discussing at length the intricacies of the tariff and other questions of national importance, and went on to speak in the highest terms of General Mahone, his Republicanism, his friendship for the negro, and how much he had done to elevate them and help assert their rights. A negro in the audience, by the name of Hughes, before the meeting adjourned, requested that he might be permitted to reply to the two gem'len from the North, and referred to Mr. Cheadle as Mr. Beadle, and Mr. Brumm as Mr. Bruen, sarcastically likening them to the animals those names represented. After discussing other matters agitated in the campaign, he finally look up the question of General Mahone's love for the negro, saying he would illustrate how much the General loved the negro by repeating a dream he had the night before: "I dreamed," said he, "that I had done gone and died, and after I was dead I found out I didn't have no wings, and I 'lowed I'd walk to Heaven, and when I fetched up at the golden gate I knocked, and the gate keeper, he came out and axed me how I got way up there to the golden gate, and I 'lowed to him pintedly that I come all the wav on foot. The gate keep er, he says: "You caint come in heretoday, for I ain't admitting nobody now, 'oept they is on horseback." So I was turned away from the golden gate. When I was coming back to you again, I met General Mahone right on the same road, and I says, says I: "Whar you gwine, Mars' Billy ?" and he says,says he: "I'm gwine to Heaven, stand aside." I tole him "you can't get in thar, Mars' Billy, 'cause they ain't taking nobody in 'less they is mounted on hossback." Then Gen. Mahone said : "You get down on your hands and knees, you black rascal, and I'll get on your back, and we'll ride in together." So Mars' Billy, he climbed up a stump and got onto my back and we cantered up to the gate, and I 'lowed I'd knock again. The gate-keeper, he come out and he says: "Who's thar ?" I says : "Mars' Billy Mahone." The gate-keeper, he says again: "Is he mounted or on foot ?" I tole him, "He's on hoss-back, of course, for he's Mars' Billy Mahone, of Peters- . burg, the friend of the cullud man." Then the gate-keeper, he hollered out loud, he did : "General Mahone, tie yo' hoss on the outside, and come in 1" And I jest laid back and 'lowed to myself: "Niggah, sold again!" And that's the way Mars' Billy Mshone wants to ride you into the Republican party. Thetequel was that the county of Cumberland, which had previously given 800 Republican majority, was carried by the Democrats by about 150, and the first time they had carried it in twenty years.

Stone, recently of Tennessee i Experiment Station, but now Professor of Organic Chemistry at Purdue University, , Indiana, made, while at the Tennessee Station, an investigation into the use of cotton seed hulls and meal as a feed for ' live stock. The whole of the cotton seed oil industry is of comparatively recent growth, and hence, though the hulls have been uskl more or less for twenty years, nothing like an economic utilization of them has been attempted. The information in regard to its direct feeding value has been obtained principally from parties using it in a rather extensive way. From 1 this information and from analyses made of the hulls, meal and resulting manure, the professor concl udes: i The practice of feeding cotton seed hulls and meal as an exclusive diet is well established and increasing in the vicinity of , the centres of the cotton seed oil industry. All the information available indicates that 11 ?? -a : 5 nn 1 unrl nrnfifflhlo. ' lilt) prtttlll'O 19 ClUUUUIIUll uuu |/tvuwv. It seems in no way harmful to the health 1 of the animal or to the healthfulness of the products (beef and milk) resulting. The j diet seems to be adapted both to the pro- i duction of beef and mutton as well as milk. The average ration should consist j of twenty-five to thirty-five pounds of hulls and five to eight pounds of meal daily. The hulls are a cheap and effective substitute for hay. The manure produced < by this system of feeding is an important 1 factor in considering its relative profitableness. j Compact the Wheat Ground.-Wheat succeeds best in a compact seed bed, one , in which the particles are not fused into ' masses, but in which they are distinct and in close contact. Hence, in the preparation of ground for wheat, the roller and ' harrow should be used as mucn 10 compact the seed bed as to pulverize the clods. In such a seed bed there is greatest capillarity ; moisture and heat are most gener- , ally and equably diffused through the ground. Each grain of seed is likely to find those conditions essential to germina- 1 tion, and the plants those conditions favor- 1 able to growth. When the wheat is sown 1 there is often a deficiency of moisture in the upper soil; but if the seed bed has * great capillarity, moisture will be lifted i from it. In a compact seed bed there are I no holes in which water can collect, and the capillary condition prevents an excess | of moisture about the roots. The wheat ] plant is doubtless injured by stagnant j roots, and this is also chiefly responsible for the serious heaving out of wheat by frost. In a compact seed bed the roots also ' get a surer hold than when they must y cling to the sides of holes and crevices. 1 Finally, such a seed bed most readily yields plant food, and the plant can make a i stronger growth against frost, insects, or ' more readily recover from their attacks. ] ?[American Agriculturist.

On Men's Shoes.?I have only one hobby, and that is shoes, or rather the feculiar fashion I have of wearing them. used to think that a man got the best Bervice out of a shoe by putting on the best pair a shoemaker could make him and wearing them constantly until the leather gave away somewhere, but I now think that it is the most extravagant way of dressing the feet. I am never without three or four pairs of shoes in good wearable condition. I never wear the same pair two days in succession, and at least once a month I go over each pair with a brush dipped.in vasaline. Thus, with three pairs of shoes, I give each pair one day of work and two days of rest, and the leather has time to regain its elasticity and stretch out the wrinkles the foot has made. These wrinkles break in the leather when the shoe is continuously worn. The vasaline is better than oil for fine leather. I used to wear out four pairs of $8 shoes a year, one at a time. The same number now last me two years.?[St. Louis Globe. Milk for Chickens.?It is not every one that is aware that hens are very fond of milk, which is as good for them as it is for pigs.

BRAZIL. The empire of Brazil comprises nearly i half the territory of South America. It is nearly as large as the United States, and larger than the United States without Alaska. Its population is only about 12,000,000, less than 200,000 of whom have exercised the right of suffrage. A large part of the population consists of emancipated slaves. A larger part is Indians and persons of mixed blood. Probably not one-tenth of the people are at all qualified to rule by popular vote. The soil is fer! tile, and, on account of the warm climate, very productive. Four-fifths of the country* is an elevated plateau, and this is sep-' arated from the 4,000 miles of sea and river i coast by ranges of mountains which shut off free access to it, and which are pierced by railroads only with great difficulty and at enormous cost. It has been the policy of Dom Pedro to push public improve ments, witn tne national credit, and the great debt of the country is for public works, railways and permanent improvements, and not for costly wars. There are now, 5,000 miles of railway in the country, and several thousand more are in process of construction. The Amazon is navigable for nearly a thousand miles, and the commercial facilities it gives can be seen only by imagining that a river, navigable for the largest ship afloat, extends from Cincinnati to the Atlantic, so that every place between this and the ocean should possess the advantage of a seaport town. The country has been subject to the wise and humane reign of the now deposed emSeror, Dom Pedro II, since 1840. Under )om Pedro I, in 1821, the country threw off allegiance to Portugal. The grandfather of the recently-deposed emperor was Dom John, king of Portugal, who fled to Brazil at the time of the French revolution. On his return to Spain he left his son, the first Dom Pedro at the head of Brazilian affairs. This son, the father of the deposed emperor, led the revolt against Portugal, and was crowned constitutional emperor of Brazil October 12, 1822. The government was given into the hands of Dom Pedro II when a boy of fourteen, in 1840, and a few months more would have completed a reign of fifty -> r\? ?..?. ^caio. vsu auuuuut ui ins iccuic ncaiiu, ' the government has for some years been to a considerable extent in the hands of , his daughter Isabel, heir to the throne. , Her husband, Count d'Eu, a Frenchman of narrow views, was nominally commander-in-chief of the Brazilian army. The fact that he was universally disliked by the people, and that the effect of the succession of his wife to the throne was feared, has had much to with the revolution. The national debt is only $500,000,000. The credit of the government abroad was excellent. The legislative assembly is composed of a senate and chamber of deputies elected by the few who have the ; right of suffrage. The senators hold office ' for life and the deputies for four years. Only those vote who have an income of $200. Dom Pedro had long cherished the idea | of freeing the slaves, but found great diffiL culty in the opposition of their owners, and the fear of turning adrift so large a body of people that had no training in self? support to provide for themselves. His. i plan was, therefore, to abolish slavery by i degrees. An emancipation fund was esi tablished in 1870,and slaves were purchased and freed as rapidly as possible without j the risk of a shock to the government, i Other provisions were made, by which . those born in slavery after a fixed date were to be free in a certain number of years. The number of slaves was by this plan gradually reduced until May 13,1888, when the legislative assembly passed a bill at once abolising all slavery. This bill was signed by the emperor's daughter, acting as regent during his absence, and was clearly in line with his policy. Indeed, i it was only his long continued policy and preparation that made the bill possible. Isabel and her husband, however, took the credit to themselves. Compensation was not made to the owners, as Dom Pedro had planned, and as would have been just, and their oDnosition has nrobablv had i much to do with the revolution, if they , have not been its chief instigators. The cause of the revolution is given out as the unpopularity of Isabel and her husband, Count d'Eu, who are ruled by the 1 priests of the Catholic church. The Count d'Eu, although nominally the head of tile army, possessed no influence. He had been cashiered for a grave offence, and was saved from punishrnei t only by a pardon from his father-in-law. The real leader of the army was General Fonseca, who has ' always been opposed to the Count d'Eu. 1 Taking advantage of the proper time, he i has succeeded in overthrowing the gov> ernment. Could the nation have looked forward to a worthy successor of Dom Pedro, the revolution might not have occur, red. He is an old man, in feeble health, and it may prove fortunate that the revolution has occurred, without loss of life, i during his lifetime. The Brazilians would never have consented to the rule of Isabel and her worthless husband, or to the do1 minion of the priests of the Romish church. Our annual import of coffee from Brazil amounts to $34,000,000, and of rubber to 1 about $12,000,000. So little were the first reports of the revolution credited that many regarded them as an attempt to work up a coffee speculation. "TRUSTS" AND "COMBINATION'S."

Both congress and several Stato legislatures are inquiring into the constitutionality of these bodies, evidently with a design to i break them down, or to control them, if a way can be found to do it. The idea and the plan of these trusts are very simple, and the method of their working is not difficult to understand. ; The leading corporations in a certain business, to all intents and purposes, intrust ! the management of their affairs to a committee of their own members, who constitute the board of officers of the "trust." What shall be the amount of an article to be produced by each ofthecorporations, at what price shall sales bo made, within what district shall goods be sold by each, so that there shall be no competition between them?these are among the leading matters regulated by the trust. But, of course, in order that the decisions of the officers of the trust may be carried out, it is necessary that all concerns engaged in the business shall be either members of the combination, or obedient to its decrees, i The motto of a trust, in effecting unity of action, seems to be, "Peaceably if we can; forcibly if we must."

There, are, 1 however, others, not so thoroughly organ1 ized, and not intended to be general and 1 permanent, which are simply "pools," 1 formed to sustain the price of an article for a short time, or to control production, which do not require a separate descrip, tion. i There can be no question that compe tition in manufactures and trade is broadly speaking, a good thing for both dealers and the public, and all measures which artificially restrict production or regulate prices are bad in their influences and effect; but . when this has been said, we have not made much progress in the solution of the perplexing problems raised by these trusts. For, how can we say that a man or a corporation snail not, mane an agiccujcuias to the amount of goods to be produced, the price at which and the place where thev shall be sold ? Indeed, how can we find out whether a man or a company has made such an agreement, without exercising such a supervision over his business as no country, however despotic, claims 1 the right to exercise ? Moreover, the employes in any trade are permitted to combine for the purpose of regulating the terms on which they will sell their labor, and they can use any means short of physical violence and open annoyance, to enforce their claims. There can hardly be one rule for employes and another for employers. Yet it seems necessary in some way to Eut a stop to the system, or at any rate to ring it under restriction or legal control. The State properly refuses to give any power to corporations, which have been i well-called "artificial persons," except that which is strictly defined in a charter; and ; that power it gives only to corporations which it creates and controls, and may l destroy again. I Now a "trust" is a self-created corpora tion ; it employs powers of the most important character, which it has prescribed and assumed without legal authority; and it is, thus far, at auyrate, exempt from all legal supervision. Out of the conflict between the undoubted rights of persons and the undisputed right and power of the government, some system of control will certainly come, at no distant day. DEFINITE RULES. A thoroughly competent house keeper, who has never been to a cooking-school, but was locally famous for her culinary skill, was lately telling another woman how to make a pudding. The story, as given by the Chicago Ledger, is evidently true to nature, even though the dialogue may not have been reported verbatim ; for some cooks go more by instinct than by rule. "If it's to be a small pudding, why, of course, I don't use much flour; the bigger it's to be, the more flour I take. Hometimes I have to use a good deal, and then again I very often get up quite a pudding without having to use much. You see, it depends pretty considerably on the baking powder. If that's real good, it don't make much difference about the flour." "I suppose you use raisins?" "Sometimes I do, and then, sometimes I don'. It depends upon whether I want it rich or not, and what kind of sauce I'm going to use." "How much sugar do you take?" "Well, now, some folks take a good deal and some folks don't. For my part, I never did like to have anything too sweet, so I'm always careful not to get too much sugar. After you've made itonceor twice you won't have a particle of trouble in getting it just to suit you." "How many eggs?" "There! that's the beauty of it. With this kind of a pudding it don't make so much difference how many you use. If you've got plenty of eggs, why you Cttn put in several; it wont hurt; but if eggs are scarce you can get along with less just as well, nobody will ever notice the difference." "Do you mix your dough with milk ?" "Yes?sometimes. I'm not so very particular. It depends. If I've plenty of milk, I do; but if you get everything else all right, it's no matter about the milk." "How about spices ?" "Use 'em if you want to. Some folks like 'em, and I think myself they rather help a pudding sometimes, especially if you use plain sauce. But you must follow your own taste about that; and if you don't get it right the first time, don't blame me, for I've done my very best to tell you just what I do and all about it." -Systematic RonnERY.?The smallest child in America who has gone through any of the simple arithmetics taught in our schools would say "24 sheets make 1 quire," and with a little calculation would tell you that there are 4 pages to each sheet, 24 times 4, or 96 pages to each quire, and you will find on the back of each blank book figures representing the numher of mi ires in the hnnk. These figures a -1 ? --? ? ? --#1 long time ago did tell you the truth. But examine your blank book now and see for yourself. Look at the figure on the back at the bottom. You find 6? Yes. Well, that means 6 quires, 9G pages to the quire, or 576 pages. How many pages do you really find in the book? You look and find only 432 or 480, or it may be as low down as 288 pages, and yet were you not told there were six quires in that book, and did you not have your attention called to that figure "6" on the back of the book ? and didn't the clerk who sold you the book say 6 quires atsoand so, per quire? There are frauds and frauds all over and through the land, and you must keep your eye open or be sold out.?[Progressive Farmer. How to Read Newspapers?There is a right and a wrong way to read a newspaper. If a person picks up a newspaper and begins reading the first article that catches his eye, then turns and returns the paper, skipping over it and devouring only that which appears to suit his fancy, he will almost invariably overlook the very thing he would have liked best to see; then after throwing it aside decide that the paper is not what it should be. When, if he had first looked at the name and date, then commenced going down the column reading the headings, or if short particles the entire piece, he would, when through, hotro hofJ a fair lrnnuroIcrc nf its pnntpnia it is no harm and takes but little time to see what every piece is about, even if you should prefer not to read it through, for then you have its contents and can refer to it later on. So when you pick up a paper take it a column at a time, just a9 you would a book or a continued story, and see how much more satisfaction you will gain yourself, besides giving the paper its dues. Human life is estimated to have lengthened twenty-five percent.duringthe last half century. "The average human life in Home, under Ctesar, was eighteen years," says Dr. Todd, of Georgia, "now it is forty years. The average iu France fifty years ago was twenty-eight, and the mean duration in 1887 was forty-five and one-half years. In Geneva during the thirteenth century a generation played its part upon the stage and disappeared in fourteen years; now the drama requires forty years before the curtain falls. During the golden reign of good Queen Bes9, in London and all the large cities of merry old England, fifty out of every one thousand paid the last debt to nature yearly, which means, instead of three scor9 and ten, they averaged but one score. Now, in the city of London, the average is forty-seven years. Nine Points of Good Husbandry.? When your wife has been busy at home all day, do not, immediately on your return, spy out some omission, but glance around and recognize her efforts by some such expression as, "This is comfort." 2.

Jay Gould Neveli Alone.?Jay Gould, who has been here with his family for two weeks, left to-day. The peculiarity has been noticed that Mr. Gould is never alone. He never left his room or appeared anywhere without several persons with him. His daughter, Miss Nellie Gould, almost always had hold^of his arm, and his son, George Gould, walks behind or at his side. Generally there have been four persons with him, but seldom less than three and there was also at the United States hotel during his stay here a man who managed to keep near him, or followed closely in his wake wherever he went. This man is supposed to be a private detective. With all fyis millions Mr. Gould looks like a careworn, harrassed and unhappy man.?["Saratoga letter to Philadelphia Times.

The watch is an open face, stem-winder and setter, and is, perhaps, the best and most reliable Watch, considering price, that can be obtained. A leading jeweler of Yorkvillo says that "it is a good, honest watch, well made and well worth the price at which it sells." The case is a combination of silver and nickle and will wear a life time. The retail price of the watch is $10.00. The time fixed for completing clubs under the above offers is limited to one o'clock, p. m., on MONDAY, the 10th day of MARCH, 1890. Competitors may commence to secure subscribers at once. All NEW SUBSCRIBERS that are returned in clubs previous to the 25th of December, 1889, will be furnished with the paper until the FIRST OF JANUARY, 1891, for $1.75, but in every instance the subscription price must be paid before the name is entered on our books. . No name will be counted in competition for a premium, and no premium delivered, until the subscription price has been paid. To persons who make up clubs of ten or more names, but who may fail to obtain one of the above premiums, we will send The En quirer one year free of charge; and to those who send a club of twenty or more names, but who may fail to get one of the other premiums, we will forward The Enquirer one year free of charge, and a copy, one year, of any weekly newspaper or monthly magazine published in the United States, the publication to be selected by the person entitled to receive it. It is not necessary that the names of a clnb should all be at the same post-office. Names may be taken at any number of places. One name for two years will be equivalent to two names for one year each. All subscriptions must be forwarded to us at the expense of those sending them. We will be responsible for the safe transmission of money only when sent by draft, registered letter, or money order drawn on the Yorkville post-office. In sending names, write plainly, giving postoffice, county and State. All subscriptions will be discontinued at the expiration of the time paid for. A separate list will be kept for each clubmaker, who will be credited with every name sent, so that the number sent by any one person can be ascertained at a moment's notice. Persons who commence making clubs, will not be permitted, after the names have been entered on our books, to transfer the names to another club-maker's list. The time in which additions may be made to clubs under this proposition, will expire on the SECOND MONDAY OF MARCH, 1890. Therefore, persons who desire the benefit of club rates, must subscribe and pay for the paper before that date, as after the expiration of that time it will not be furnished for less than 32.00, unless new clubs are formed.

THE CORBIN DISK HARROW. -# It is Simple in Construction and Does Its Work Thoroughly. It In Heartily Endorsed by Every J Farmer Who Has Used It. THE COBIN DISK HARROW is the invention of a practical farmer, and is, as now \ ottered to the farming world, the result lit years 4 experience in the manufacture of Agricultural Implements and combines selctions from over ^ two hundred patent claims. It is superior to all other harrows in its lightness of draft, perfect flexibility, regulating lever for adjusting denth of cut, and case hardened anti-friction ball bearings, easily oiled and sand proof. The following are some of the advantages possessed by the Corbin Harrow overall others: First, None other has independent gangs, either of which can fit any ridge or hollow without c turbing the other*. Second, None other has chilled journal boxes; those of the Corbin Harrow are so hard that a file will not scratch them. Third, Noneother has anti-friction balls in lis journal ooxes aim an a tuimviucw ..~..w other has so light a draft. Fourth, None other can be set at so sharp an angle, owing to the severe friction on their journal boxes, and as a consequence none other will pulverize like the Corbin. Fifth, None other has a successful SEEDER ATTACHMENT, making it really two machines in one, at less than the cost of one. Sixth, None other is so simple is in construction or so durable. Numerous other advantages possessed by the Corbin Disk Harrow could be mentioned, but is unnecessary. The Disk Harrow is endorsed by the followiuggenllemen, each of whom is a practical farmer and knows the valueofsuch an implement on the farm, and speak from experience: Rob't E. Guthrie, Guthriesville, S. C. ; Dr. YV. M. Walker, and W. H. Herndon, Yorkville; Felix H. Dover, Grover, N. C.; W. O. Guy, Lowrysville, S.C. ;and in fact by farmers all over the United States. WHAT IT WILL DO. The Corbin Disk Harrow will level rough land. Will soften a summer fallow. Will break up clods and lumps. Will pay its cost by increasing the yield. Will make the best possible seed bed for grain. Will work around stumps, in hollows, or on knolls. Will mix rough manure with the soil as no other harrow can. Will lift and turn the soil to be fertilized by the sun and atmosphere. Will cut weeds, corn stalks, cotton stalks, and roots and bury them at one operation. Will increase the crop at least twenty per cent, by reason of its thorough work. Will prepare grain stubble and corn stubble and cotton stubble lands for sowing without using a plow. There is no implement in the world adapted to more uses, and none has been more successful in every locality where introduced. The Corbin Disk Harrow is intended to successfully take the place of the Cultivator, Drag, Smoothing Harrow, Spring Tooth Harrow, Drill, and on some soils the Plow, for it will do all that any, and more than most, of these tools will do. Used as a Seeder it will cover every seed to a uniform depth. Will pay its cost in seeding grain alone, as it covers every seed. Will enable the farmer to. seed four times as many acres in a day. It will sow all kinds of grain more evenly than can be done by hand. Two sizes of disks are used. The smallestsize is 13 inches in diameter and the'largest 16. The manufacturers make harrows with 12, 16, 20 and 24 disks each, but experience haa demonstrated the fact that the 13-inch, 12-disk, or the 16-incb, 12-disk, six foot cut, is best adapted to general farm work. By an especial arrangement with the manu- * facturers of the Corbin Disk Harrow, we aro enabled to offer the farmers of York and surrounding counties this most valuable implement at unusually low prices?lower than they have ever before been offered. We make the following proposition : To any one who will secure FIFTEEN NEW SUBSCRIBERS at $1.75 each and pay us $24.50 in addition, we will fura 13-inch. 12-disk Harrow, or for FIFTEEN NEW SUBSCRIBERS, and $26.50 in cash, we will furnish a 16-inch, 12-disk Harrow. To persons who do not desire to make a club we igake this proposition: We will send The Enquirer for oue year and furnish a 13-inch, 12-disk Harrow for $30; or a 16-inch 12 disk for $32, which amounts include one year's subscription. We have several of the 16-inch, 12-Disk Harrows on hand and can till orders for this size without delay. The offer made in our prospectus to furnish The Enquirer for the balance of this year and all of next in Clubs to new subscribers at $1.75, also applies to this proposition. In every case the money must be pakl when the name of the subscriber is returned. The Harrows will be delivered, free of any further cost, to persons who have complied with our terms, at any railroad depot within one hundred miles of Yorkville. LEWIS M. GRIST, Yorkville, S. C.
