By abbreviating mv letter last week you
made me find fault witb the operator for not
reoeiving the signal the night before.
I onlv said that the signal should have
been reoeived the night before. I meant in
order to be a prediction. No one expoots an
operator to stay up until 10 o'clook p. m. to
get a message that eeuld not bo displayed.
There would be very few up late enough to
see It. No more on this subject,
"A miss is as good asamllo" is the old
adage, but we would rather that little barn
that burned last Friday just north of Mr.
Hanson's harness shop had boon a mile away.
Had the wind been a little north of cast, in­
stead of a llttlo south of east, in all probabil­
ity there would havo been but little of Lyle
standing today. As it was,the liarn containing
some hay, and August Webber's bugury were
consumed. The display of our lire depart­
ment at the lire was, tosaytho least, amus­
ing.
Bewaro of experimental Binders and Mow­
ers. Let the manufacturer do tbe experi­
menting at bis own expense. Performance
boats promise, and it is best for a farmer to
buy a machine that has an established repu­
tation in his vicinity. The manufacturers of
the Champion keep their machines abreast
of the times at their own expense. This is
the third harvest for their Chain Drive, Raise
and Lower Binder. Bach harvest baa
brought many impromements. Other manu
acturers are imitating. The imitation is
fever as good as the original.

J. Rummings of St. Peter was in town Sun­
day, tbe guest of bis daughter. Mrs. W. B.
Sleeper. He was accompanied by his son-in
law, H. Banke of New Ulm.
s. A. a
Tbe Champion Binders, Mowers and Reapers
have been on tbe market about forty years,
and are recognized as tbe standard for excel­
lence in all that goes to make first-class Har­
vesting Machines. The Warder, Busbnell*
Glessner Company, tbe sole manufacturers,
commenced tbe business in 1860 in one small
wooden building. Now their plant consists
of twenty brick buildings, each as large as an
ordinary factory, and covers forty acres.
First-class machines and wise ana liberal
methods have placed this Company in tbe
front rank of American manufacturers. Tbey
are recognized as wide-awake, shrewd adver­
tisers also, and we are gratified at their selec­
tion of our paper as an advertising medium
to reach tbe best farmers in this locality. We
welcome tbem to our columns.
C. B- L. L. CORNERS.
We need rain badly.
Early sown grain Is up and looks well.
C. Hambrecht bad bis wells sunk deeper last
week.
Jobnnie Makeney retured from bis western
trip Wednesday.
Miss Anna Boyd went to Chester, Minn,, last
Wednesday to visit relatives there.
Less Balden, tbe veteran well driller of these
parts, is drilling a well for Mrs. Hagerty of
Clayton this week.
Farmers are about through with tbe sowing
of small grain and are now turning tbeir at­
tention to flax and corn.
Sneak thieves raided Charles Smith's place
one night last week, but were frightened
away before tbey got what they wanted.
A. McKee, the wind mill man of Le Roy,
raised a sixty-five foot tower with a ten foot
Halladay at tbe top for A. Makoney last Fri­
day.
A wolf hunter killed a Jack rabbit near Mr.
Kougb's grove one day last week. Several of
these beautiful animals have been seen
roaming over our prairies of late.
A casual observer passing P.J.Peterson's
place migbt remark, "That man keeps a lum*
ber yard." But P. J. says it is only a barn he
is going to put up, as soon as spring's work
is over.
D. C. Corbit of Le Roy is having a new En­
terprise wind mill put up on bis farm on Sec­
tion 18, Lc Roy township. To say that McKee
Mason are to do the work is a sufficient
guarantee of a first-class job.
A farmer living near Le Roy owns a dog
that beats any of the canine tribe we have
either seen or beard of for bis display of
human-like intelligence. One evening not
long ago be started to go bome and it was
somewhat late. Did bis dogship strike out
across lots like the 'average dog? No. He
simply bid bis friends good night, took a Ian
tern and started down the road as nice as you
please and with an air that seemed to say
"It's getting late, it's time I was at bome and
1 must get there." To say that bis late asso­
ciates were amused would be but a feeble ex
pre8sion. He did not carry his lantern in his
mouth as some might suppose, but on biB tail
"Haste makes waste." Now is the time to
carefully examine the merits of the different
Harvesting Machines and decide which is most
durable, best suited to your wants and best
worth the money asked for it. Do not put off
the decision until -you must have a machine.
You may not then be able to get the machine
you want.
The manufacturers of tbe Champion Bind­
ers and Mowers invite tbe fullest and most
critical examination of tbeir machines in com­
parison witb others.

A Strang* case.
Had Mrs. H. A. Gardner, of Vistula,
Intl., lived two thousand years a?o she
could have been thought to be possessed
of evil spirits. She was subject to nerv­
ous prostration, headaches, dizziness,
backache, palpitation and forty to fifty
spasms a day. Though having been
treated by eicrht physicians for years
without success, she was permanently
cured by one bottlo of Dr. Miles' Re­
storative Nervine. A trial bottle of this
wonderful medicine, and a llnely illus­
trated treatise free at Giles t&Tryon's drug
store, who recommend and

Marvelous Endurance.
The vast amount of labor performed
by the heart in keeping all portions of
the body supplied with blood is not gen­
erally known. It beats 100,000 times,
and forces tbe blood at the rate of 168
miles a dav, which is 3.000,000,000 times
and 5,150,880 miles in a life time. No
wonder there are so many heart failures.
The first symptoms are shortness of
breath when exercising, pain in the side
or stomach, fluttering, choaking in throat,
oppression, then follow weak, hungry or
smothering spells, swollen ankles, etc.
Dr. Franklin Miles' New Heart Cure is
the only reliable remedy. Sold by Giles
