In these days of mechanical won ders and the various types of auto mobiles ob the market, it may be in teresting to many people to know that the largest automobile ever built ia a harvester and "auto" combined and is being used in Southern Cali fornia, according to a writer m the Washington Star. This writer adds: "It is equal to sixty horses, and goes at the rate of three and a half miles an hour, mowing a swath thirty-six feet wide, putting up the grain in fin ished shape, threshing, etc. The machine is sixty feet long and thirty feet wide. The motive power is fur nished by oil. It is such an expen sive 'harvest hand' that one farmer cannot, of course, own it ulone, but it is the property of a company, and goes from one farmer to another. Eight men are required to run it. As the machine starts off the grain be gins falling in sacks on the opposite side from where it is cut, and the stiaw drops into a cart behind Three machines sent to Russia for work on the steppes were delayed in China and captured by the Boxers There they remained for a couple of years, but they are now in Russia, » and considered an American wonder. The Louisville Courier-Journal provides some food for thought when it asks: "In view of the actual fact —since the administration made short shift of Colombia, which ;to say truth deserved little consideration on its own account—why was it so liberal with the French company?" The Courier-Journal adds: "It could have wiped out the French company in Panama as easily aa it has wiped ont Colombia and got ita mneb-vamdod franehisea tor notbiog. Waa it afraid of Franc«? Or wore its relation a with Bnnan-Vsrilla, and the «lock gamblers who financed the revolution, too close to make it safe to play the donble-crosa on the French company? The Washington correspondent for the Chicago Chronicle reports this interesting incident: "A group of congressmen were talking presiden tial politics in a committee room when ene of the members said: "Here is Hanna ready to enter upon a new six-year term March 4, 1905, but he will never begin that term. You re member Garlield, another Ohio man, had been elected to a similar term, but instead of being sworn in as sen ator he took the oath as president. Mark me, history will repeat itself.' 'But Hanna is for Roosevelt,' was suggested. 'Ves, and Garfield was for Sherman,' said the first speaker significantly." A. North Missouri editor asked: "Who is the happier, the man who possesses ŸiOO.ÜOO or the man w ho has seven daughters?" Another Mis souri editor promptly solved the problem in this way: "l'he man with the surplus girls, of course. The man with the money is not satisfied and wants more, the man with the seven daughters is satisfied—he has VICTOR NBWS. SyiM-lal (iurriisumirli'iiue to tile Western New Victor, Nov. 30.
