Among the different types of» reapers ami the numerous variations |of each type rhe bitterest rivalries | prevailed. There mta no pool, no , "gentlemen's agreement." no "com i inanity of interest." Indeed the . '"harvester business" was not busi- I ness. It was a riotous game of I "farmer, farmer, who gets the farm er?" The excited players cared less for the profits than for the victo ries. As fast as they made money I they throw it hack into the game, i Mechanics became millionaires and "millionaires became mechanics. The whole trade was tense with risk and rivalry and excitement, as though it were a search for gold along the high plateaus of the Rand. And j this in spite of the fact that, with I the exception of MeCormiek, Os ! borne and Whiteley. the men who came to be known as reaper kings J were not naturally fighters. No ! business men were ever gentler than Deering, Glessner, Warder, Adri j anee and Huntley. But the making |of reapers was a new trade. It was I like a vast, unfenced prairie, where I every settler owned as much ground jas he could defend, i Each step ahead meant a strug i gle for patents. Whoever built a ! reaper had to defend himself in the j courts as well as approve himself in ; the harvest ftelds. Cyrus IE McCor- Imicfc especially, a3 William Deering against every man'who .hired' to make reapers, lie Was the grizzled j old veteran of the trade, and he P«*S». He wai their commooene. j my. and the reaper money that was j squandered on lawsuits brought a j | Some of these patent wars shook • the country with the crash of hos tile forces." The tide of battle roll ed up to the supreme court and even I into the halls of congress. Once in ! 11853, when MeCormick charged fail ! tilt upon John 11. Manny, who was i making reapers at Rockford, 111., a j three year struggle began that was j the most noted legal duel of the day. McCormick, to make sure of his j victory, vent into the fight with a . battery of lawyers whom lie thought : invincible—William H. Seward, E. iM. Dickerson and Senator Reverdy 1 Johnson. Manny made a giant ef j fort at self defense by hiring Abra ham Lincoln. Edwin M. Stanton, I Stephen A. Douglas, Peter 11. Wr.t ! son. George Harding and Congress man H. Winter Davis. ' Prom first to last it was a law yers' battle, and McOrmick was finally defeated by Stanton, who 'made an unanswerably eloquent ! speech. For this speech Stanton re ceived $10.'":.). and Lincoln, who had made no s] a Job at all, was given Isl,ooo. Yei i:i the long run the i mau who profited by this lawsuit was Lincoln, ;';>r it was this money that enabled him to carry on his fa mous debate with Douglas and thus male him th<> inevitable candidate of the Republican party. — 11. N. Cassoa in Everybody's Magazine. He Didn't Care. '"We—we want you to marry us," said the blushing young man, indi cating a young woman with down cast eyes and smiling face who stood a step behind him. "Come in," said the minister. And he endeavored to ease their embarrassment for a moment. But he soon decided that it was useless to try. "Will you he married with a ring?" he inquired. The young man turned a helpless gaze on his companion and then looked at the minister. "If you've got one to spare and it can. come out o' the $2, I guess -he'd like it," he said at last.— Youth's Companion. Solicitude. 'T have had a delightful evening. Miss Genevieve," sai l young Chol ly. ri.-ing to go at 11:30, "and I had no idea it was a o late, had you?" "Why.

Contest closes Saturday, April 11. There are some surprises in store for the readers of the World, as well as the candidates ere many days pass, and when the final count of votes is made on April 11. the con testants who failed to ask their friends to subscribe for the World will see the opportunity they lost. Before the close of the co.itest a great majority-of the people will come in of their own accord and cast ballots for their favorite young ladies Of course, there will be many back ward ones—there always are in af fairs of this kind—and the cons tants will go after them hammer and tongs, and try to get them to see the benefit derived from a free trip to Alaska and persuade them that the votes should rightly go to such a one. This is the way to do it. and no one will refuse to give a three months' or a year's subscription to help these young ladies to secure extra votes, i as unlike other contests, there is a The World-Advance Voting Contest, ■ Subscription Voting Ticket. Please eater Votes For MiS3 Name of Subscriber Address Amount paid This coupon, L presented at the World office at Weaatchee.

Not very many when it comes down to fig uring the days, is it? This means a little accentuated work for every con testant in the race, especially if the candidates expect to make any kind of a showing 0.1 the last day. Just one month to convert*evvry non-sub scriber of the World into an ardent ; reader. Can this be done, is asked by many?

Each candidate, however, is entitled to receive votes from all the districts. The entire party will travel first | class to Alaska by way of the beau jtiful Inland Sea route, including i first-class transportation both ways, stateroom, meats and all accommoda tions while enroute. It is indeed a truth that "along the coast no trip like this."
