Why should a Farmer drive around his field cutting a swath of only six feet when he can just as easily cut and bind a twelve foot swath with , Ji OIJUJLIl oJD G Carver's Harvester can be used as a BINDER or HEADER. The Harvester King Company, iully confident of the superiority of their great Machine, issneBjthis ohallenga to the makers of any and all six foot cut Machines: .We trill put the twehe foot oat Harvester King Maohine into any field of Wheat, Oats or Barley andunder the name favorable conditions of grain, will' i oat and bind more grain within a given number of hoars than any two six foot Binders in the market of whatever make. - We willtto the work as well in the same conditions of grain. 1 , We will leave as clean or clearer a stnbble. We will bind as tight or tighter. We will show that the Harvester King will oat as close to the ground and can be changed by the ase of the lever to cat higher stubble than any six foot binder oo earth. ... The draft of the Harvester King will be less than the combined draft, fairly and accurately ascertained, of the two six foot Binders. Oar Competitors have been deolaring that the Harvester King is a failure, that we misrepresent its qualities, that it is impracticable and won't work in the field. Now if any of them have confidence in the superiority of their six foot maohines, they will have abundant opportunity to establish that superiority in the field jr. W ?f1E ASSOCIATION AT MARVIN. . The Beloit Distriot Ministerial As soclation assembled in Marvin, Kan- iaa,MylO, 1897. Kev. J. A. Bull, Prenldic Elder, in the chair. The first etening "was given to an Ep- worth League rally, and the inter est, of that great organization, the League, were ably represented in papers by Mr. E. 0. Tilton of Beloit, distriot president, upon the subjeot, "Methods of Maintaining Enthusi tarn in League Work," and by Miss Nellie Gudger of Eirwin, subjeot, "Our Relation to the League;" and onl inspiring address by Kev.

Getty of Downs, ex-district president, on "Why Have a League," and Bev. B. T. Btauber of Jewell Gity, on "Battlements," constituting an ex cellent progi am. Congratulations ' noon the musio furnished by the Marvin choir were profuse. The ftsjooiation proper opened Tuesday, May 11, at 8 o'clock a. m., with de votional exorcises led by P. E. Bull, and the holy spirit was present in blessed power. "And Heaven came down onr souls to greet, while glory crowned the mercy teat." After the sacrament of the Lord's supper at 9 o'clock a. m., the order of the day became "business" aad the several commit tees reported, among the rest a com mittee on constitution, which oreated ao small amount of harmless debate and resulted in a new constitution being adopted. H. H. Bowen was wlctpd secretary and J. M. Allen tiiarer. The literary program was taken dp at intervals to suit conven ience. At four o'clock p. m. achil drens meeting was conducted by Bev. 6. W. Hood of Logan, he speaking upon the subject of "Joseph." The meeting proved to be an occasion of great interest to the junior league. Eight o'olock a. m. was the hour for the Kansas Weslyan University Anniversary. Bev. B.

The K. W. U. is one of the leading schools in Kan sas and by far exoells any in doing college and university work in west ern Kansas. From eight to nine a. m. and from four to five p. m. each day was devoted to penteoostal ser vices, led by different ministers, and were each ocoasions of great refresh ing and spiritual power. Wednes day evening at 8 o'olock Bev. W. A. Mo Wright of Cawker Gity, preached one of his sermons, at once so sub lime and mighty,, so wonderful for edifioation of the church and conver sion of sinners, and of overpowering eloquenoe. Thursday evening, Bev. E. M. Evans of Concordia, preached to a crowded house with powerful effect, the speaker moving his con gregation at will. Truly we are ' sel dom carried on the wings of sublime thought we can get nearer views of glory than we were then, and as a result several souls manifested a de sire to lead a better life.

' Secbetakt. From the Cincinnati Enquire. INdALLS AQAIN. Atchison, Km., May 10, 1897. . "It is obvious that if the greenback treasury notes, silver certificates and other paper obligations of the' gov ernment are to be presented for re demption in gold, redeemed in gold, reissued and presented again for re demption in gold indefinitely, it will be neoessary to have surplus revenues in gold or to sell more bonds for gold. '"There needs no ghost, my lord, come from the grave to tell us this.' "As an economic proposition, it does not make muoh difference whether the people are taxed to. obtain the'sur p'.us . revenue or taxed to pay the bonds issued, to enable the gamblers and brigands to plunder the nation by methods that make Monte Carlo respectable. "It seems inoredible that the ink is yet wet upon a contract by whioh President Cleveland transferred the protection of the treasury and the de fense of-the publio credit to a foreign syndicate which agreed, for a profit of $8,000,000, to' restrain their own depredations upon the gold reserve -King Buy a Binder that operates in front of your team and does not destroy hundreds of bushels of wheat by the horses arid machine running over sections.

Any pri vate business conducted on such scheme would consign its proprietor to the bankruptcy court, the alms house or the penitentiary, according to the caliber of his lawyer or the dis position of the jury. v "The fatal infirmity of Mr. Ding- ley's theory is his assumption that the executive has the right to hold the greenbacks in the treasury, either to exchange for gold or for the pur' pose of bonds. The greenbacks liai' ited to $345,618. 01G, were intended as permanent and constant addition to the legal 'tender currency of the country, and any policy which has for its object their temporary or final withdrawal is without warrant; in law. "Another defeat in the hypothesis of Mr. Dingley is his assertion that the retention of the greenbacks in the treasury would not oontract the cur rency because the gold for whioh they were exohanged would enter in to and become a part of the circulat ing medium of the country. Every body knows to the contrary. "Practically gold is never in cir culation. It is not available in the daily transactions of wage earners because it is not susceptible of sab dividing into coinage of small denom inations. In placid times of tranquil and contented prosperity the people prefer paper and gold remains in un sought seclusion. When d'strust and apprehension prevail, when credit is impaired and confidence shaken, then gold is hoarded or transferred in bulk from kingdom to kingdom, to be buried in the vaults of the Jews, or to replenish the treasuries of monarchs. "The statement of Dingley empha sizes the declarations of those who framed the financial plank in the St Louis platform, and of their demo cratic allies that "sound money" means ultimately the retirement of the greenbacks, the degradation of standard silver money, and the trans fer of the legal tender function of gold coin alone. The volume of the currency should have no more to say about the number of dollars to bo issued than about the number of hats inffler when you open VV- ' ' :.; " "7 . uv ii vuvj A W WAAU UVtJV) 54-1! t i 11 ei iv utMiiio to be made or the number of bushels of wheat to be ground or the number of cattle and hogs to be raised.

"All the people of the United States are unreservedly in favor of honest money and the maintenanbe of public faith, credit and honor. Many of them believe in the principles of a tariff for revenue and for protection. But any measure whose justification is the oontraotion of the currency, or whioh will reduce the price of wool, hides and othor raw material by un restrained competition, and increase the cost of coats and shoes by heavy duties on the manufactured prod not, will not be received with unmeasured enthusiasm by the republican farmeis of the Mississippi valley."
