Such judgment may be set aside upon motion without showing ex cuse for delay in making such motion and without merits being disclosed. An attachment under chapter 36, general statutes o11878, is a provisional remedy in the action and does not confer jurisdic tion to enter judgment against defendant without a service of the summons in the manner prescribed by statute.

HARRIET ALLISON, daughter of Rev. E. R. LATHROP, died Sunday, at 10:15 p. M., aged twenty-four years. Miss Latbrop had been gradually failing for three years past, from consumption. Yet her death was very sudden and unexpected. Part of the family had returned from church about an hour before, when she was seized with a hemorrhage, which brought death in a few minutes. She was a graduate of the St. Cloud Normal school, and was just finishing the second year of teaching in Rochester, when her health failed, three years ago. The people of Austin have known her only as an invalid, but her patient, christian en durance has commended her to all who have known her. For three years she has wreBtled with dis ease, and made a heroic struggle for life, but yielded to death with the utmost christian resignation, having waited now in almost daily expectation of that event for three mouths past: The members of the church and congrega tion of which Mr. Lathrop is Pastor, and many others, have been very devoted to the family in this sickness. "EVE'S DAUGHTERS." A. NEW BOOK. The announcement of anew book by Marion Harland, whose popular novels and worlu on household economy have endeared her to thou sands of hearts, is sufficient to excite great public interest. Probably no woman in the entire list of American authors is so peculiarly fitted for the task of writing a work which deals with the physical, intellectual and moral life of her sex as the successful and popular author of "Common Sense in the Household," of which 100,000 copies have been sold. The book is sure to excite a great deal of discussion and will be sought after by every intellegent woman, young or old. The book deals frankly, earnestly and fearlessly with the whole subject of woman's condition and position in the world, the position God intended she should occupy her rights, duties, and privil eges the delicate peculiarities of her complex nature her relations to her own kind, and more especially her relations to the opposite sex. All thoughtful persons admit the crowning need of a work of this peculiar character, written by a woman of unquestioned ability and wisdom, and that woman a wife and mother, a woman whose reputation for ability and purity is world-wide, just such a one, in toct, as Marion Harland, Every mother in the land may not only profitably read this book, but safely place it the hands of her daughters. It was written from a keen sense of duty, and with the high purpose of giving help where help is sorely The work is the earnest practical talk of a thoughtful woman with women, upon what is to them the most momentous subject of the day and age. Beginning with the birth of the baby girl, the author leads the child up to girlhood and womanhood, each with its vicissitudes of recreation, study, society, home duties—on to marriage and prospective maternity. The book is intended for home-reading,—as a reference and a help to those with whom the author is already In full sympathy, through the medium of her Common Sense in the Household Series,"—the Housemothen and Daughters of America. The style is easyand sprightly each chapter is delightful reading, apart from the'vital questions therein treated, and the value of the practical lessons to be learned from every page. Price $2.00.

CHICAGO, 111., April 10, 1882. EDITOR TRANSCRIPT-. AS the McCor- miek Manufacturing Company of Chicago are causing notice of the suit of the owners of the GORHAM PATENTS against me and other manufacturers, to be gen erally published in the newspapers of the country with inspired comments intended to "promote the sale of their own ma chines, and injure others, I deem it proper to say: The owners of certain patents, known as the "M. L. GORIIAM," have brought suit against me, alleging infringe ment in my DEERING TWINE BINDER. I wish to state that the Gorham patents have for along time been offered me at a moderate royalty, and were carefully in vestigated by my attorneys, who decided that I in no way infringed them. If the owners think otherwise, it is quite legiti mate and right they should submit the same to the decision of the proper ribunal. I 'will cheerfully join issue and abide the result. A decision in the circuit court can scarcely be expected in less than three- to five years, and a final one in the Supreme court in any less time you need not therefore expect to be made immediately acquainted with the final issue. The courts are open to any one wishing to litigate his patents, and the owners of these patents were at liberty to prosecute their action against either the manufac turer and vendor, or any seller or user but having properly elected to proceed against me, they arc debarred from action against any of the others concerned. I should not consider this suit of sufficient importance to mention to you, only that it has been made the occasion by a well known concern for a BUNCOMHK ADVER TISING DODGE. This concern is understood to have be come the owner of a one-third part of these patents by exchange of other pat ents ot little value, and is now flooding the newspapers of the country with no tices of the suit, accompanied with com ments intended to make the impression that it controls the TWINE BINDER pat ents, and that it will be hazardous for far mers to buy any other than their own machine Any machine that requires this class of advertising must he in sad need of substantial merits to commend it. This concern fails to insert in these paid advertisements for the benefit of pur chasers of farm machinery, that they arc now in the courts as defendants in suits for infringements of the MARSH HAIIC VESTER patent, for infringements of the Gordon patents on Binders, and for in fringement of the Graham patents on Mowers. Why do they not advertise the fact that all, or nearly all, the machines they have put out of late arc subject to patent litigation? And with the formula usually appended to the notices of the Binder suit, "It would be well for farmers to be cautious" in buying MCCORMICK'S machines, etc. Farmers are not supposed to be much versed in patents, or to consult an attor ney every time they have occasion to pur chase apiece of farm machinery, and any concern who should propose to trouble an innocent purchaser with questions of this kind, is and deserves to be considered un worthy of the confidence or patronage of the farming community,and is, and should be odious, especially when redress can be had of the responsible party who makes and puts the same upon the market. Such advertising can and should only re sult in injury to the party authorizing it, and no reputable and higli-minded party will resort to such methods of intimida tion and threats. The "Drive Well" or "Barb Wire" method does not take well with farmers, or generally commend itself to manufacturers of harvesting machin ery. Finally, I wish to say, I was first to put a successful Twine Binder in the harvest field. I have made and am making the best and most successful Twine Binder. I have sold more and am now making (as I believe) more Twine Binders than any other concern in the United States. I shall continue to make and sell the best binder. I am able and disposed, and will warrant, defend and proteet against all ad verse claimants and comers.all past, present and future purchasers of the Deer ing Twine Binder. If the courts in this case, or any other, find me guilty of infringement, I will abide their decision and respond to their mandates. Yours Truly, WILLIAM DEERING. Graham vs. McCormick. Judge Drummond, of the United States Circuit Court, on Saturday the 22d, en tered a decree in the patent case of Hugh Graham vs. Cyrus H. McCormick and partners. This is the second decision in the case in Graham's favor. This in volves the tilting'or rocking of the cutter bar of mowers and reapers. It is understood that the complainant claims $5 royalty on each infringing machine, and that the McCormicks have built many thousands, so that the case probably involves several hundred thous and dollars.—Inter-Ocean, April 28, 18825 Bucklpp's Arnica Salve.
