Sullivan Upon the banks of Euphra tes the Saints of long . ago preached to the weary multi tude the tiuths they ought to know. Now after centuries have rolled across the. burning sand another race of people con trol the Holy Land. The Turk with ornamental dirk, the Turk with oriental smirk, the Turk who round the barems lurk, and could not be induced to work, the Turk who murdered just for fun, and kept the Christ hns on the run, and took his orders from the Hun, the Turk at last is getting his since we commenced to do the biz. We've taught the Turk'tbe turkey trot, We've made the Holy Land so hot the turban and the fez he wears are irksome, and he soft ly swears as to the rear b . makes a streak th'e while the sweat rolls down his beak. The Turk will soon be civilized; our argu. ments are emphasized with Boot and shell and sword and bombs and bayonets like we prod the Hun. And when we drive the Moslems out, when all tbeir army in a rout are driven back ward to the sea the Holy Land will then be free. And may the good work now begun continue till the Turk and Hun, and all tbeir friends beneath the ton their cursed, bestial race bare run.

J ohn Deere Kaffir Header k -.l V.-o-I For Kaffir Corn, Milo Maize, Sorghum, Feterita, and Other Similar Crops The knivescutoff thestalks at an angle. This is better than cutting squarely, as less power is required,, and the knives last longer on account of less wear. " John Deere Kaffir Header knives are special high carbon crucible steel and are especi ally designed for this work. Rapid Elevation Its construction and the lo cation of the John Deere Head er on the wagon are such that the beads fall directly onto the carrying chain as soon as cut. This places them in the right position to be elevated promptly. It means rapid work because the direction the heads are moying does not have to be changed by the header, The John Deere is mounted on a pivot at the rear end practically at height of top of wagon box. But little power is required to operate it, as drawing and mounting pivots are on a common center and there is no change in relative positions of working parts when it is ad justed to cut shorter stalks. The knives grasp the heads, cutting them off as they fall back onto the elevator. They are then elevated with an easy incline until practically in the wagon. , There is no whipping effect, which would thresh out the grain or corn, but the. movement with The John Deere is grad ual from the time the knives cut off the heads until they fait into the wagon an especially desirable feature when cutting beads of unequal height. The speed of cutting knives and both upper and lower chain-are the same. There is no tendency to drag or break the stalks, and the strain on the machine is evenly distributed. There are no corners into which the heads may drop and collect. Choking up The John Deere Header is paactically impossible. W. F. CASTEEN & CO.
