The MCCORMICK TWINE BINDER has won a world-wide reputation for STRENGTH, DURA BILITY and the superior quality of its work, and the machine for 1884 has been greatly improved. Is very light draft and is so evenly balanced that there is positively no weight on the horses' necks. It has the strongest and most perfect DRIVING GEAR. THE CUTTER BAR IS COLD ROLLED IRON. The adjustable Reel and Binder, and the many other improvements on the McCormick Binder have made it the leading machine. Be sure and see it. Sold by EEHR" BROS. MERCANTILE CO., Abilene, Ran.

This ma chine is beyond all doubt the best Header manufactured in the United States. It will cut lower, and higher, than any other Header made without stopping the team.
