TXIEI ADVOCATE. THE DEAD LINE. Continued from page 3. " Certainly." said Mrs. Euble, "Please be seated; he will be here in a very few minutes. just then Lena entered the room, looking somewhat haggard. "Miss Chipperwell, said Mrs. Ruble, "this young lady is Mr. Cotterell's only sister. She is anxious to see her brother, but I am compelled to seem cruel and to refuse. These are friends who came with her." When Mason and Mrs. Delorme ar rived, Kate and Lena were locked in each other's arms. Mason introduced Mrs. Delorme to his father and his mother. "Marshall! Is it possible?" "Yes, Hallie, it is I at last." And brother and sister, parted by a father's avarice and pride of caste, met for the first time since their youth ful days. Mrs. Mason was presented to the sister-in-law she had never met before; then, turning toward Kate, Overton said: "Hallie, this is Mr. Cotterell's sis ter." "Mr. Cotterell's sister? What an ac cumulation of pleasures I am having! You have not seen your brother, I pre sume, Miss Cotterell?" "I hope I shall do so soon. We are waiting for the physician. My brother has often spoken of you in his letters, so that I seem to be quite well ac quainted." "And I know I shall love you dearly. You and Lena are already friends I see," and, smiling, she took each of them by the hand. "You will all stop at my house while you remain in Graham? You can do no good remaining here, even could Mrs. Ruble lodge so many. Lena, your father and the Major left to-day to be gone some days; so I am all alone, but for Marshall. I shall have to call you something else now, Marshall, or 1 shall get you and brother Marshall con fused." "Call me Overton," said the brother. "That is one of my names." "So it is. That will do." The surgeon came. le was told that Kate was his patient's sister. Kate looked at him anxiously, and he was struck dumb with the dazzling beauty of this "face with a soul in ft," as he afterwards described it. "Please tell mo quickly is my brother going to die V" exclaimed Kate, misinterpreting his silence. "Can 1 not sec him right away? It is so awful to be kept from him this way when he needs me so much," she continued tearfully. (To be continued.) Given IUgk Ilonors. The World's Columbian Exposition though now only a glorious memory has left lasting monuments behind. For generations to come its impartial awards will be the basis of determining the com parative merit of the things judged. Few.if any, of thousands cf exhibitors at the fair were more highly honored than William Deering & Co., of Chicago, the world's largest manufacturers of har vesting machinery. Of the total num ber of twenty-six awards given to the seventeen exhibitors of harvesting machinery and binder twine, this firm was given sixteen awards, sixteen medals und sixteen diplomas. The other ten awards were distributed among four other exhibitors, the highest of these receiving six awards, another two and two others one each. This supremacy waa given to the Deering maohines simply because the outclassed all competitors in -their rec ords of draft and efficiency as tested in competitive field trials. Deering machines were given exact ing official field trials in Colorado con ducted by the regular judges of farm machinery, appointed and paid by the government. These trials were on irri gated farms where the growth was rank and the land strewn with stones and gridironed with irrigating ditches and laterals. Notwithstanding these ad verts conditions the Deering Improved Steel Binder made a draft record 113 per cent. Issa, and the Deering Pony Binder 16.9 per cent, less, than the reo ordamade for a competing binder in straight grain on smooth ground at Wayne; III Similarly, the Deering 5 foot Idbsl Mower showed a draft 88.8 per cent lower than the 5-foot mower tried at Wayne; and the New Deering 6-foot Mower 19.5 per cent lower. The Deering Giant Mower showed a saving of 23.7 per cent over a competing mower of the same size in the Wayne trial This remarkable saving in draft made a strong impression on the judges, who could not help realizing its great im portance to agriculture. The novel fea ture of the jointed platform, coupled with the simplicity of the binding at tachment and the marked efficiency and evident strength of the whole machine were all taken into account by the judges in giving their awarda for the binders. In considering the mowers the judges were strongly impreesed with the unique adjustable drag bar, the two-piece pit man, the everlasting gears, and the per fection of mechanism which enables these machines to do better work for mora years with lighter draft than any other mower made. Manufacturers of harvesting machin ery and binder twine were especially fortunate in the high character and wide experience of the judges appointed to examine their exhibits. They were Prof. John E. Sweet, for years professor of mechanics in Cornell university at Ithaca, N. Y., who is recognized as being one of the greatest authorities on me chanical matters in the United States; lion. Hiram C. Wheeler, of Odebolt, la., one of the largest farmers in that state, who was republican candidate for gover nor of Iowa in 1891; and Mr. Charles Whitney, of Illinois, an inventor and mechanical expert of wide reputation. One of the great events of the exposi tion which, though having no bearing on the award of prizes, gave Deering machines honors considered by many as even higher than the actual award of prizes, was the famous tour of the for eign commissioners to the bonanza farms of North Dakota. The results of this tour, together with a description of the Deering maohines, are set forth in a beautiful book entitled, "Why Bonanza Farming Fays," which is sent free on application by William Deering & Co., to all farmers desiring it There are longer but no better roads in this or any other country than the Chicago & Alton railroad. This line makes a peimanent patron of every traveler who once gives it & trial. Its tracks are of the heaviest steel and as smooth as glass. Its road-bed is stone ballasted throughout. Ita epuipment is superb. It was the first line on which a Pullman sleeping car was ever run, the first line to adopt dining cars and the first line to run free reclining chair cars, and to-day its solid vestibuled trains, containing all of these modern luxuries, are running through on fast time to and from Union Depots in Kan sas City, St. Louis and Chicago with astonishing regularity and with exceed ing comfort to ita ever increasing pat rons. If you ever make a trip in any di rection between Kansas City and Chi cago, or Kansas City and St. Louis, or St. Louis and Chicago, and fail to pat ronize the Chicago fc Alton, you may be sure that you have missed at least one opportunity for increasing your happi ness in this life.

The greatest circus is usually on the Bill-boards, and the circus on Circus Day is consequently a disappointment. There is, of course, the occasional exception which proves the rule. McCormick Binders and Mowers are an exception. Their promise on the "Bill-boards" is always fulfilled on "Circus Day." For years the makers of McCormick Grain and Grass Harvesters have been telling the World that they could and would at any time demonstrate the superiority of their machines in the actual competitive field test. The "Bill-boards" of other manufacturers have glaringly proclaimed that their machines are the best. But "Circus Day" came at length. The World's Fair urged all these manufacturers to take their machines into the field that the results might be compared. The McCormick was there; its show went on. It's promises to the World were carried out. But how about the other "great and onlys"? They stayed at home consoling themselves with the reflection that "the people like to be humbugged," and their artists got up new pictures for the "Bill-boards." Before deciding about going into these field trials, the competitors of the McCormick went and examined the crops to be cut, and realizing the severity of the conditions, they said to themselves: "We don't propose to come here and compete with the McCormick ;" "a live coward is better than a dead hero ;" "a sucker is born every minute, and we'll catch some of 'em anyway." That policy may answer for the "Bill-board" sort of circus; it will not do for the McCormick. Promises must not be broken. If McCormick machines are not better than all others, they must not be so advertised. If they are so advertised, every Binder, every Reaper and every Mower must be ready at a moment's notice to go out into the field and show up. That's business. Write to the McCormick Harvesting Machine Co., Chicago; or, better yet,' call at once on your nearest McCormick agent.
