Thousands have been made, and one has never been known to break down. The Cutter Bar is made of angle iron, and is the best known. The Guards are so placed on the cutter bar that we are enabled to cut short, lodged and tangled grain better than any other Harvester made. The Platform Canvas runs close to the sickle, and does not permit tlie butts of grain to draw on Cutter Bar. The Raising-and Lowering Device is more simple than any other known, and more easily operated, and from the drivers seat. The Double Truss Brace holds the platform and elevator frames solid.so that it is impossible for them to get “out of true." The Canvas Adjusters at each end of the Binder, help to form a good bundle in long or short grain, or on side hill. The New Sliding Seat enables the driver to balance the machine instantly, whether going up or down hill—one of the most valuable im provements. The Three Discharge Arms prevent dragging of the bundles even in badly tangled grain. Our Knot Tying device has been so simpli fied that it astonishes even “old binder men" to see how little machinery is necessary to tie a knot. E. P. HORNER, Agent, myy 15-3m Greenwich, Cumb. Co., N.

James G. Blaine was born January 31, 1830, at the Indian Hill farm, Wash ington County, Pennsylvania, on the west side of the Monongahela river, opposite the town of Brownsville. The house is somewhat of a historical spot, being the first stone building erected on the western side of the river. It was built by Mr. Blaine's grandfather, the elder Neal Gillespie, in 1778, on what was at that time considered the western borders of civilization. Mr. Blaine s boyhood days were passed at Lancaster, Ohio, where he lived in the family of a relative, the Hon. Thomas Ewing, then Secretary of the Treasury, and attended a neighboring school. He was the third son of Ephraim L. Blaine, a justice of the peace, who became somewhat noted by deeding to the Economists the tract of land -- ksj uic ui A UlRUUI^, for which he received $25,000. Being elected Prothonotary of the County Court in 1842, the elder Blaine sent James to Washington College in 1843, from where he graduated in the fall of 1847 at the age of 17 years. During his college days he demonstrated his fondness for politics, and was known as a strong Clay man, and was always the court of last resort in political dis cussions among the students. On leaving college the youthful graduate went to Kentucky and taught school, his father at this period being compar atively poor and having insufficient means to support the large family of which he was the head. While follow ing the occupation of a country school teacher Mr. Blaine met his present wife, who was also teacher of a coun try school in Kentucky. Shortly after their marriage they went to her former home, at Kennebec, Me., where he en tered the journalistic profession, as suming control of the Kennebec Jour nal, and afterward of the Portland Advertiser• He immediately sprang into a position of influence in State politics, and at the age of 25 was recog nized as one of the young leaders of the Republican party. At the age of 29 years he was selected Chairman of the Executive Committee of the Republi can organization of the State, a posi tion he has held ever since, and prac tically shaping and directing every campaign, and leading the party to victory. In 1858 he was elected to the Maine Legislature, and served in that capac ity four years, two of which he was Speaker of the House of Representa tives. In 1862 he was chosen a Representa tive in Congress, from which time he has been prominently before the public. During the course of his Congressional career as a member of the Postoffice Committee he was instrumental in unugiug inio use tne present system postal card, a branch of the depart ment which hitherto had not reached any degree of perfection. He was elected Speaker of the House of Representatives in March, 1869, and was re-elected in 1871, and three years later entered on his third term as such. In 1875 he took his seat on the floor of the House, and was recognized as the leader of the Republican minority, the Democratic “tidal wave” of 1874 hav ing given them the majority. His dash and brilliancy as the Repub lican leader on the floor of the House made him a popular candidate for the Presidency in 1876, he, on the first bal lot, receiving 298 votes, and on the seventh ballot, on which Hayes was nominated, received 351 votes. The same year Governor Connor, of Maine, appointed him United States Senator to succeed the Hon. Lot M. Morrill, who resigned to accept the position of Secretary of the Treasury. At the following session of the Maine Legislature he was elected to his seat in the United States Senate. Four years ago he was again put forward as a candidate for the Presi dency, and after thirty-six ballots were cast he was defeated by the late James A. Garfield. On the inauguration of President Garfield, Senator Blaine was appointed Secretary of Slate, which position he resigned several months after the death of the lamented President, owing to a difference in his ideas to those of Pres ident Arthur on matters of public pol icy. Since his retirement from the Cabinet he has been engaged in litera ry pursuits, having written during that period his “Twenty Years in Congress.1 Throughout his distinguished career lie has been always regarded as a man of good temper and temperament, with a powerful intellectual vehem ence. During his career in Congress and the Senate he delivered many elo quent speeches, among them his de fense of Maine, in reply to reflections by the Hon. S. S. Cox, on fishing bounties, the conscription bill, the sil ver question, the army appropriation bill, and other subjects. His studies have always been largely on political questions and history. In his earlv college days lie was noted for his early love of American history, which, in his subsequent years, he cultivated, and at the present time it would be impos sible to find a man in the Union who could, without reference, give so many accurate facts and statistics relating to the linancial and revenue system, and, in fact, to everything that con stitutes and includes the developments, achievements, and success of the United States. John a. logan. John A. Hogan was born of Irish parentage, in Jackson County, Illinois, February 9th, 1826. Upon tlie declara tion of war between the United States and Mexico he volunteered, was made lieutenant of the First Illinois Infantry i and was for a time adjutant of his •regiment. At the close of the war he studied law’ with his uncle, Alexander M. Jenkins. In 1849 he was Clerk of Jackson county. Subsequently he completed his legal studies at the Louisville University, and was admit ted to the bar in 1852. His popularity may be inferred from the fact that in the year of his graduation he was elected to the State Legislature, and in the next to the office of Prosecuting Attorney of the Third Judicial District, holding that office until 1857. He was re-elected to the State Legislature in 1853, 1856 and 1857, and was Presiden tial Elector on the Buchanan and Breckinridge ticket. In 1858 and 1860, he was elected Representative in Con gress. In July, 1861, he left his seat in the extra session of Congress and joined the Union troops on their way to the disastrous battle of Bull Run, and was one of the last to leave the field. He was made Colonel of the Thirty-first Illinois Infantry in September, and in November met the foe at Belmont, where his horse was shot beneath him during a successful bayonet charge. He led the charge on Fort Donelson, was wounded and compelled to leave the field for several months. In March, 1862. he joined Grant at Pittsburg Landing and was appointed Brigadier General of Volunteers. During the Summer of 1863 he was urged to run for Congress, but replied: “I have en tered the field to die, if need be, for this Government, and never expect to return to peaceful pursuits until the object of this war of preservation has become a fact established." His bravery in Grant’s Northern Mississippi move ments met with a promotion to the rank of Major General. At Vicksburg his column led the entrance on J une 25th, and lie was the first Military Governor. He superseded Sherman at the head of the Fifteenth Army Corps in November, 1863, and when McPherson lost his life on the 22d of July, Logan succeeded him and com manded the Army of the Tennessee with the same ability and success which had characterized his command of smaller numbers. He was with Slier man on his “March to the Sea,” re maining with him until Johnston's surrender. From the close of the war until 1871, he occupied various posi tions of honor. In 1871 and again in 1879 he was elected Senator from Illi nois. Senator Logan lias played a brilliant part in the political history of the United States during the last twen ty-five years. His speeches in the House and in the Senate are famous for their impressive power. Heroism and courage, eloquence and ability are attributes of his possession of which no man has ever questioned. In tearing down a portion of the Washington Hotel at Bordentown last week, a violin with the name of “Thomas Paine'’ branded on it was found stowed away in the attic. Paine did considerable writing in this old town at the inn named. Juries are so tender with men who commit crimes when intoxicated that j a good motto for those contemplating dark deeds would be: “Be sure you’re 1 tight; then go ahead.” ~ The new postal notes are now being 1 issued by the Post Office Department, i The new notes are of a lilac color and not so complicated in design as the old form. SUNDAY SCHOOL CONVENTION. The Second Annual Convention of the New Jersey Sunday School Associ ation for the Fifth District met in the Baptist church, Cape May, on Wednes day afternoon of last week, at 1.30 o'clock. There were about 125 dele gates, Sunday School workers and vis itors present. Rev. J. Judson Pierson, V. P, presided. Rev. V/. H. Hodder, of Port Norris, read the scriptures. An address of welcome was delivered by Rev. G. F. Bishop in his usual warm and earnest manner. A confer ence followed upon “How to regulate the week day reading of our youth,” Dr. Brewer, of Vineland, delivering quite a lengthy discourse upon the sub ject. Dr. S. W. Clark, Corresponding Secretary added some useful hints. “Spiritual qualifications of the Sun day School worker” by Dr. Henry Hartshorne. editor of Friend's lieview, Philadelphia, was ably discussed. Dr. Clark led at some length in a confer ence upon the theme of “Success in the Sunday School work—what is it and how secured?” Several members of the Convention gave views upon the subject. Reports of the County Secretaries followed. Cape May first, by Rev. J. Ingram: Cumberland by Wilbur F. Wilson, of Vineland; Salem by Jos. R. Lippincott, of Salem; and Gloucester by J. C. Tatum, of Woodbury. The evening session began at 7.43 o’clock. The church was much more closely filled than during the after noon. After devotional exercises and singing Rev. E. W. Hitchcock, D. D.. delivered an eloquent address on “The duty of tiie Church to the children." He was followed by Rev. John B. Gough Pidge, of Philadelphia, who occupied the place of Rev. John Ped die, D. D. He chose for his theme “A grain of wheat," and gave a very in teresting and profitable discourse. Rev. Dr. Magoon pronounced the Ben ediction. The morning and closing session on Thursday was one of considerable in terest, commencing at 9.30. The work as laid down upon the programme was reversed, first coming the address nl Rev. DeHart Bruen, of Clayton, on “Mistakes of Superintendents.” A conference on “What constitutes a teacher's preparation for his work?” was conducted by Rev. S. W. Clark. Rev. S. M. Vernon, D. D., of Philadel phia, arrived on the morning train, and delivered his address on “The spiritual needs and possibilities of childhood.” With closing words by the President, thanking the people of Cape May for their generosity and hospitality, the convention adjourned. HAMMONTON BABY FARM. Hammonton was thrown into an un usual state of excitement last week over the discovery of the bodies of twenty-one children buried in a small plot of ground attached to the Nivison Home, the new infant's sanitarium which was started there last January. Dr. Ezra M. Hunt, Secretary of the State Board of Health, was officially notified, and accompanied by Dr. In gersoll, county physician, he visited the home on Wednesday. The exami nations brought to light the fact that of the twenty-three infants brought to the home since the 22dof last January, twenty-one have since died. The phy sicians were led into the yard and the twenty-one bodies were exhumed. They lay in soap boxes and barrels at the bottom of a deep trench. Dr. In gersoll summoned the coroner and on his arrival an inquest was held. The attendants at the home testified that the deaths of nearly all the children have occurred within the past two months. It appeared that Irish moss formed the staple of food for the in fants. The home was founded by Miss S. S. Nivison and is held in trust by three trustees of New York City and Brooklyn. Miss Nivison, a graduate of the Women's Eclectric Medical Col lege, of Philadelphia, is the sole owner and manager of the institution, and is also at the head of one at Dryden Springs, N. Y. She was absent from the home from the 13th to the 27th of May, though she heard from the home every day, according to her own testi mony, and although the mortality was then at its height, the children had no medical treatment, nor did she hasten home. Nine died in her absence and two of these in one day. The jury found that the infants came to their deaths from natural causes, aggravated by the neglect of Miss Nivison, im proper sanitary arrangements and general incompetence of the nurses in charge. Miss Dr. Nivison is a lady of about fifty years of age or over, of dis tinguished manners and appearance, and apparently of Scoteh-Irish parent age. The case is now in the hands of Joseph Thompson, Esq., Prosecutor of the Pleas of Atlantic County. THE EDITORIAL EXCURSION. The arrangements for the coming re union of the New Jersey Editorial As sociation are now complete. The par ty will leave Jersey City by the West Shore Road on Monday, June 23d, at 1 p. m., reaching the Grand Hotel on the Catskill Mountains after a ride of about four hours and a half combining a variety of river and mountain scene vy, the attractions of which can scarce ly be overstated. They will remain at the Grand Hotel, which has a roman tic situation some 2,000 feet above tide water and commanding a view of un surpassed sublimity, until 9 o'clock Wednesday, the 2oth. when they will take the cars for the Fort William Henry Hotel, Lake George, stopping for dinner at Johnson's Dining Rooms. Albany. Lake George will be reached about 5 o’clock. Thursday morning at 10, they will take the steamboat Horicon for the upper end of the Lake, sailing the full length of that charming sheet of water, and after a short ride by rail will take dinner on the steamer \ ermont at her dock near Fort Ticon deroga on Lake Champlain, which will be detained there specially for the ac commodation of the party. It is ex pected also that time and opportunity will be given for the inspection of the ruins of the fort. Saratoga will be reached about half past 4, and the par ty will be quartered at Congress Hall until Saturday morning, when they | "hi leave at an early hour for home. ; reaching .Tersev Fitv at 19 pa r, The train will be a special one all around, made upwof.the magnificent cars of the AVest Shore Road, and the Excursion promises to be one of the i most attractive and delightful ever j given by the Association.

The i’ party will be limited to 200, and appli cations for tickets must be made be fore the 14th inst., to the persons j named below. They will be ready for delivery after the 16th. In the Counties of Cape May, Salem, Cumberland, Gloucester, Camden and Atlantic, to Sinnickson Chew, Cam den. The New York Times and the Evening Post, both Free Trade journals, have refused to support Mr. Blaine as a can didate for the Presidency. This is well! The Republican party is the party of protection to American labor. No Free Traders are wanted in the Republican column! The editor of the Times, Mr. Jones, was born in England, and is a Free Trader in every respect. The Times is backed by British gold, j the stock being largely held by Eng lishmen. The course of the paper has i long been un-American and un-Repnb ; lican. Let it go to the Democrats where ' it properly belongs! Mr. Blaine is not a Catholic as has ' been asserted. He and his wife are | both members of the Congregational | Church at Augusta, Maine, and have ! been for many years. Gen. Logan, candidate for A’ice President, is a Meth odist. Mrs. Logan, his wife, is one of the most prominent members of that denomination. Since the nomination j she has received congratulatory tele grams from several of the leading men of that Church, including one of the I Bishops. AVitli John A. Logan on the Repub , lican ticket as candidate for ATce ! President, there ought to be no trouble in rallying the solid soldier vote of the country. The man who led the victo rious hosts of the Army of the Ten nessee never lost a battle, and he won’t lose the battle which is to be fought at the polls of the nation in November ; next. In Oregon, the first State this year to elect a Congressman and members of the Legislature, the Republicans made a clean sweep. At the election in that State recently, Herman. Re publican, was elected to Congress by 2000 majority, while in carrying the Legislature the Republicans gain a United States Senator. President Arthur tenders his hearty support to the ticket! Mrs. Garfield widow of the late lamented President, sends a congratulatory telegram to Mr. Blaine! Gen. Grant heartily sec onds the nomination! Mr. Conkling is favorable! All of which indicates that the campaign is opening well! The Governor has signed and al lowed to become laws one hundred and twenty-live bills and nine joint i resolutions. Vot President, Jame G. Blaine, of Maine! We are happy!
