TO TUB PUBLIC :
We Uke pleasure In preset ting to tbe people
Of our County the Premium List of tbe Third
Annual Fair of tbe Butler Coouty Agricultural
Association.
Our prospects for a successful meeting are
Ten (Uttering indeed. We bare secured tbe co
operation of repreaentatlve termer* In different
■M lions of the county, wbose n*mes foarsntee
tbe success of any enterprise with which they
may be identified.
Tbe iLaoagemeut ape determined that tbe As
sociation sbal) be devoted exclusively to tbe ad
vancement of tbe Ajrricultaral, Mechanical and
otber domestic interests of tbe county, and will
•pare BO means to make tbe coming meeting all
tbat could be desired by both exhibitors and
visitors. And we earnestly ask the co-opera
tion of the cittern* ol oar ceunty,.especially tbe
termers, in making tbe coming Fair a sncceaa,
•ad In doing so, would say tbat we are fully
dive to the fret that without the co-operation of
Ibe farmers, ao Agricultural Fair can be made a
success. And believing, as we do, tbat tbe Inter
est* of agriculture are best advanced by tbese
annual meetings, we hope tbe cltteena ol tbe
County will look on it as s matter In which we
■ll bare a common interest; «nd let it be remem
bered that tbe management cannot make an
Agricultural Fair a success without tbe co-oper
ation of tbo*e moat Interested in Agriculture.
If yon have any article of merit on tbe farm,
is tbe shop, or in the boose, bring it along and
pat it on exhibition, and if yon don't get a pre
mium yoo will at Irast have the sstUtaction ot
knowing tbst yon have contributed to tbe en
joyment of others, and of helping to make our
Fair a success.
A new feature of onr Association is, tbat It is
oar intention to pay all premiums which are not
protested, on the last dsy of tbe Fair, so that
exhibitors can take their premium* home with
them. ... i
A Grand Cavalcade at one o'clock, r. *., oi
each day will be one of the features of tbe exhi
bition, and will be well worth a visit to tbe
grounds, as each and every animal on exhibition
can then be seen.
Ail articles are admitted to competition free,
except for speed, horse# and cattle, and every-'
body to invited to compete.
Another new feature of onr coming exhibition
to, that there will be only three days of tbe Fair,
tbe first to be devoted to making entilef, and
arrangement of articles and animate on tbe
ground, and tbe two other days to exhibition.

SUPERIOR MILLING!
WALTER & BOOS,
Proprietors of the Well-Known Splendid
POU RING MILL
BXJTLER, i'Js..
We wish to inform the public that we have remodeled our Mill with the
latest improved
Gradual Reduction System Machinery,
whk-h is well known by Millers to be the best in existence We can say to
Farmers and Producers of wheat that it will be profitable to them
to give us a trial. We claim that we can make a
BETTER ARTICLE OF FLOUR, AND MORE OF IT,
out of the same number of bushels of wheat than any other Mill in the
countv, and equal to any first-class Mill in the city, or \\ estern Mills.
The new Under-running Mill, used for Regrinding, bought of Munson & Bro.,
Utiea X. Y.; the George T. Smith Middlings Purifier, bought
' at Jackson, Mich., together with Bolting Cloths,
Reals, Conveyers, &c., suitable for
the Machinery, cannot be
Excelled in the United States
or elsewhere. This may seem an exaggeration to some, but we wish the pub
lic to know that we are able to perform all that we publish, as we have given
our machinery a thorough test in the presence of several good Millers and
Millwrights, and it has proven even better than it was guaranteed to do.
We are also remodeling our Mill for
Grinding Other Kinds of Grain,
which will be entirely satisfactory to our customers. Farmers wishing to
have their grist home with them the same day, can do so on
short notice. They will thereby save another trip.
WE HAVE ALWAYS ON HAND THE BEST GRADES OF
WHEAT Ft-OUB, GRAHAM Ft-OUB. RYE FLOUR,
Buckwheat Flour, Bolted and Unbolted Corn Meal, different kinds of Chop,
Bran and Mill Feed, all of the best quality and at the
LOWEST PRICES.
Parties in town purchasing from us will have their orders promptly
atended to and articles delivered at their place of residence.
We Pay the Highest Market Price for all Kinds of Grain.

A NEW DEPARTURBI
THE BYRACUSE CHILLED PLOW CO.
at SyraouM, N. Y.
Are now putting on the market a Plow that
, ia as much superior to any Plow heretofore
made as the Plows of the past few years have
been superior to those made hall a century
ago.
It combines all the excellencies of any Plow
In use.
It obviates all the objections made to any
other Plow.
In addition it embraces several new features
of the greatest value, for which we have ob
tained exclusive Patents.
Its Beam, Clevis, Jointer Standard and Wheel
Standard will be STEEL, and its mold board
win be a composition of Steel and Iron chilled
under a process for which we have also
obtained an exclusive Patent. It will Da
called
THE SYRACUSE
CHILLED STEEL PLOW
Its weight will be eighteen pounds leas than
our present styles.
A OrßUclasß steel Plow, made In the or
dinary way, full rigged, retails for twenty-two
dollars. Inferior steel Plows retail tram six
teen to nineteen dollars.
The price of our new Plow will be but
Seventeen Dollars, and It will be the
cheapest Agricultural Implement ever sold.
Its mold board will outwear three of the
very best kinds of the ordinary steel mold
boards.
It will scour in soils where all steel plows
and all other plows have hitherto proved a
failure.
With this How will be Introduced a corru
gated Plow Point and Jointer Point, on which
we have also obtained a Patent, and which la
also a great Improvement, both as regards
Strength and wear.
The Jointer can be shifted ao as to take
more or less land, and also more or less pitch,
and it can always be kept on a line with the
Plow.
The wheel will run under the beam or one
side of it oa desired, and always kept in line.
The beam is adjustable for Spring or Fall
Plowing, and also for two or three horses.
The handles can be adjusted to accommo
date a man or boy, on the same Plow.
It Is a perfect Plow.
Wooden beams arc going out of use because
they shrink, swell and warp, and never run
two seasons alike.
Iron beams are too heavy.
Malleable beams become demoralized and
bend, which Is much worse than to break.
A Steel beam Is the necessity of the day. It
to three times as strong and very much lighter
than any other style.
When we say a Hold board Is chilled, the
farmers know It Is so.
Wo do not palm off on them a com position
Of various metals and call It chilled metal.
We want agents tor this new Plow In every
town In this State.
We can give but a very small disooont to
them, but we will pay the Railroad Freight.
We propose to place this Plow in the hands
of Formers as near the coat of manufacture
as possible.
It will be the but Agricultural Implement
ever sold.
It shall also be the chtapuL
Persons therefore who are not willing to act
as agents on the principle that " a nimble six
pence lg better than a slow shilling," need not
apply for an agency.
No Plows on commission. All sales absolute.
tVThls is the only Steel Chilled Plow la
the World.
Steel caste several times more than Iron.
But this Plow, full rigged, by giving small
discounts, can be sold for Seventeen Dollars.
Compare this price with that of any Iran Plow
ever mode.
It Is cheaper than any other Plow now
Bade would be at Ave dollars and a halt.
Where there are no agents we will, on re
ceiptor seventeen Dollan, send a Plow to any
Hallroad station in the State and pay UN
freight. Address,
