Don't forget that. 11. Tho Cutter Bar Is made of Heavy "V Shaped" or Angle Iron, requiring no wood to support it, or to rot or warp. By Its use we can cut closer to tho ground than any other har vester made, and at the same time run our plat form canvas within one quarter of an Inch of the guards. Our cutter bar not warping or twisting, holds the cutting edges of our guards and sickle in one and tho same straight line, thus doing the cutting most easily. 12. Tho Platform Canvas Is very wide and runs close to tho sickle, Instead of having a space of three or four inches for the grain to drag on tne cutter bar, and thus cause It to go "heads first" to tho elevator and binder, as in other ma chines, thereby making it possible for our ma chlno to cut and elevate the shortest straw In good manner. 13. The Siekle Is driven from its end or heel, and directly from tho crank, same as a mowing knife, Instead of from the centre of tho sicklo, thus doing away with tho objectionable, shaky "sway-bar" movement, with Its numerous and unnecessary joints under the platform. 14. The Levers, namely, the reel lever, the tilting lever and the raising and lowering lever, are all long and within reach of the driver, so that without moving from his seat he cn adjast the reel, raise or lower the machine, tilt the guards for lodged or tangled grain; all of these operations being performed wioir easily than on any other self-binding harvester made. 15. Tho Tongue is braced from both sides with strong iron braces, and so placed as to allow the sickle to cut a full swath without any side draft. Te be continued next week.

There was a proposition made to the city couu cil at its meeting on Tuesday evening which shduld receive more than passing notice. It was in effect to provide the city with accommodations for city hall, engine house, stables, Ac, and for a" club room for the boys for a term of five years. The proposition was made by Noah C. Perkins, who would, In the event of the city's taking the property, proceed at once to fit up'the building known as the Rugg foundry, on Clinton street. The plan cotemplates ample accommodations for for all the city's apparatus, the hook and ladder truck being place! in a suitable shed to be built, a stable to be fitted up in the latest and best plan as good as any in Chicago, a large council cham ber, a meeting and club room for the fire depart ment, a 40 or .vl futi l"-!l tower, nrt-ii;in wn. r from a Weil du 1'ur luul fiurpuse, iXC An elaUd, the city would be required to execute a lease of these premises for five years at an annual rental of f 7K), payable monthly. This would also In clude the rent of the present calaboose. It is al leged that something must be done within a few months to provids for the requirements of the city. Building anew city hall and engine house on the old site is considered out of the question, with the finances in tbeir present condition. Upon the completion of the court house the council can no longer use the court room, and the ground lease upon which the building now stands expires Iu July. Whether or not the prop osition of Mr. Perkins is the best that can be ob tained we cannot say, but it is the only thing that now seems available. The Spring; Open. The spring trade has opened with a Doom at the Carriage Manufactory of Gay A Son, on Jef ferson street, west of the post office, which is turning out an immense amount of work. The Factory of the Messrs. Gay has become the most noted in the county, and we observe that many neighboring dealers are recommending to their customers and advertising to the world their goods In preference to all others. From the beginning of their business Gay & Son's constant aim has been to build only first-class vehicles of every class, and having so far done so have ac quired a splendid reputation throughout the part ot the state as far as their operations have extend ed. They use only the best materials: the cele brated Sarvent patent wheels, screwed rims, steel tire; ash and poplar bodies; second growth sea. soned hickory gearings; the best Norway and refined Iron; oil tempered springs; Ives A Miller patent sand-box axles ; and best No. 1 trimmings ; and painting to match. These materials, handled by 11 rut class workmeu, under the direct superin tendence of the proprietors at all stages of con struction, produce results that cannot bo excelled by any builders. For this season they call attention to the im proved Tlmkins Side-Bar Buggy, the most popu lar buggy In tho market, which this year Is stronger and better than ever; also the Slide Seats, the most perfect manufactured, which for durability has in the past withstood the most searching and critical examination; also the Two and Three-Spring Farmers' Buggies, which make a very popular and strong buggy for general use, of which they always carry a large stock; also phaetons, Ac. We say "Ac," for we cannot enumerate all their novelties. As they make and carry In stock some 21 different styles of car riages, phaetons and buggies, it will be readily understood they present a stock which the pub lie here have never before seen equalled. They also do all kinds of repairing, In painting, trimming and wood or iron work. Every vehicle Is guaranteed to be as represent ed, and they ask the public to call on them, as suring all they are in a position to offer bar gains, and will prove it if given an opportunity tO do 60.

While peaches and cherries in this re gion have been ruined by the April frosts, and strawberries so damaged that they will not yield a quarter crop, apples and pears continue un hurt, except a few tender varieties. Tho ruin to the peach and cherry crop came of the warm weather In the beginning of April, forcing the buds so rapidly as to be in junt the worst condi tion to encounter the succeeding frosts. The cool weather, however, has been just the thing for wheat, rye and early sown oats, and, barring the chances of Hessian flies, chintz, bugs and rust later In the season, the prospect for small grain in this region is splendid.

Demorest's "What to Wear" for spring ani summer just received at Osnaan A Hapeman's. It is the most common of commonplaces to say "we havo the largest stock," and of course some times the expression doesn't exactly "hold wa ter." Now we don't remember whether Child A Phipps have so advertised or not; but If fhoy have they had a right to do so, for we think it will be conceded that their stock of ladies,' misses' and children's and gents' fine shoes is beyond ques tion tho lurgest and most complete line of these goods now in the city. And they are the genu ine fine goods the best made and come In all sizes and fashionable styles. In addition they carry a full line of goods of all other grades and styles, making as generally satisfactory a stock as one can desire. They ask all to call un.1 Bee their goods and get their prices. Now for Light, The next subject tf agitate tho minds trf the court houso and jail building committee is "How shall the county buildings bo lighted?" Electric light is being considered, both the Brush aud Edison plans. On tho latter it is thought that 4iH) lamps of lC-candle power would bo re quired and that sufficient power could Its obtain ed from the engine at the boiler house. In con versation with a gentleman who has matin dec trie light a study a representative of this paper was informed that to furnish electricity for -loo Edison lamps would require an 85-horse power engine and a pructical engineer and firemen to run it; also, that the estimated length of time which one of these lights will burn (fioi) hours) is greatly exaggerated, that they will not burn ordinarily more than 250 or K) hours, and re quire replacement once a year at a cost of ! each, or f400. Other comparisons of nearly equal importance were made, which, from pres. ent knowledge of the Edison light were not In its favor. But as the committee are in search of light of the best and most economical kind they may learn some points in favor of this plan not yet made public. All who Iiave observed the benefits of the electric light in Ottawa do not hetdtati! to declare Jn its favor as compared with ... , ' ' .: ! .!.! I" 'I'M ! ai.'t :! !li io.'i the eyes. The prejudice that ouee existed and the fear that persons working by this light would suffer serious consequences has vanished, for daylight itself could not be easier. The con tracts for building provide for emergencies by calling for gas pipes laid throughout the build ing; but this, it is claimed, wUl not confine them to the use of gas should a more favorable plan by electric light present Itself.

The tea cuestion in Ottawa is getting to be, especially t( the consumers, of considerable im portance "here are hundreds upon hundreds of people to-dy In the United States who sell tea who actualy know uioro about cabbage leaves, squash or )umpklns, and who often, indeed too often, wei(!i tobacco, llmbergcr cheese, and sometimes patent axle grease in the same scales, and then lavo tea and coffee standing perhaps for monthsln very close proximity to barrels of kerosene oi and kegs of smelly codfish, and yet these men till tell you right to your face that they are sellng you Dure tea when it is already impregnate! with the above named aromas suf ficient to Bitke the gods swear. The tea leaf Is a very dellate leaf and ought not to be handled with hands that deal out soap and a thousand things usuSly kept In a general store. To get tea that is tia and coffee that is coffee in all its original sweetness, the majority of consumers in New Tort city, and indeed all over the ststes, are flndiid out that It must be purchased where nothingelse is sold or handled. This is as It should te aud accounts for tho big trade of the American Tea Company and its branches. The com pan ; will handle nothing else, and instead of paying about eight different profits to small dealers who buy themselves but a few chests at a time, by purchasing from this company yeu can savt all these profits made by middle men and go; tea right from any of the company's branclns much cheaper than those small dealers can purchase It in wholesale groceries in Chica go orehewhere.

Two rears or more ago a man passed through the farm land lying within easy hauling distance of the Illinois and Michigan canal, oueriug to buy tin granite boulders so numerous on Illinois Valley farms relics of the old Illinois river of prehistoric days or the glacial period of Illinois. There arc in the valley thousands and thousands of torn, from the sizo of a nigger head to the bould.f wcigliinir a ton. To our readers along the rivvrs they are old acquaintances. WeK, the ttcntlciiau spoken of wanted to buy all the farm er had The furmers in all cases were only too glad to get rid of them even anxious to turn them over to the man who would corry them off. The pi rchaser, however, would buy, and bought them at the rate or -1 per farm, taking the farm er's ce-tificate of sale at that rate. The farmers had rmny a laugh over their "salo of boulders" and th.'ir pocketing of "the idiot's" dollar. The explanation cutno this week, when Judge J.

The beauty and bar mony of a room Interior cannot bo more tlior oughly or practically obtained than by ceiling decoration a form of ornamentation now grown very popular. The broad, plain, cold surface of a white nuked ceiling is out of keeping with the figured carpets, furniture and wall paper.
