Detroit vs. Owosso
The gnmc of base ball between the
Detroit League club and the Owosso
amateur club, played at Pastime Park in
this city on Friday afternoon, was a sur
prise and a pleasure to the hundreds of
spectators. The receipts were $192.10
and were more than satisfactory. The
playing on the part of both clubs was ex
cellent, the Owosso boys surprising both
themselves and their friends. The Detroit
Tribune gives the following report of the
MAKING IT LIVELY FOR OWOSSO.
The Detroit team went out to Owosso
yesterday and played with the local team
there. Knight and Trott constituted the
professional battery up to and including
the sixth inning, when to please the people
who wanted to see the regular battery at
work, Derby and Bennett took charge of
the batters, Derby striking out sevcR men
in the three remaining innings. The
spectators and the members of the home
team expressed themselves satisfied witb
this exhibition of skill. The Rev. L. B.
Piatt, Congregational minister at Owosso,
played second, the Detroits say, in superb
style. The score is as follows:

commenced his ministerial labors in this
county some 40 years ago. made the open

preliminary business the society took a re
cess for dinner. By this time the grove
presented a lively appearance, and the
constant arrivals and the cordial greetiugs
showed that "Old acquaintance was not
forgot." At 1:30 o'clock, the processiou
headed by the Morrice cornet baud, formed
on Main street; im mediately following
were the Pioneers in their carriages. Then
came twenty Contiueutals, but not "in

Detroit on their way here and procured
new and shining suits in the style of one

on horses and made a very attractive ap
pearance. Next came a band of martial
music, with Win. Ward, one of Shia

Then came tho Jones family with their
oxen aud cart; and if the sight of that
turnout did not vividly recall the scenes of
1840, then I think those scenes are past
recalling. Next, on a platform wagon,
trimmed with evergreens came the octoge
narian John Ward, dressed in continental
costume and Mrs. Harmon, aged 87, with
her spining wheel and distaff also spun her
ibix during the march, and after she ar
rived at the grove. Last but not least,
came fifteen braves from Sitting Bulls old
gang, arrayed in paint and feathers and
showy costumes and mounted on spirited
steeds, These iiuiians were very orderly
during the march, but they had their own
way after they reached the grove. When
all were in line the column was nearly one
half mile long. After marching through

grove, which by this time was literally
packed with people.
The literary exercises consisting of
songs, speeches a,nd music were interes

BRILLIANT VICTORY FOR THE CELE
BRATSD BUCKEYE SELF-BINDER.
From Indiana Farmer, June 24.)
Considerable commotion has been
caused among rival machine men over
the signal and brilliant triumph of the
Buckeye Reaper at St. Louis Cross
ing, Bartholemew county, on Wednes
day, the 14th inst. The competing
machines were the Osborne, Mc
Cormick, Excelsior, Walter A. Wood,
Minneapolis, Deering and the Buck
eye. The contest took place in a
field of barley on the farm of D. C.
Hager. From first to last the Buck
eye won the plaudits of the crowd for
its perfect work. The Osborne, which
had offered the challenge, opened the
ball, but before completing the cir
cuit of the extensive field was obliged
to stop for repairs. The Walter A.
Wood got mired in a part of the field,
over which the Buckeye passed with
perfect ease. The heavy side draught
of the Esterly, Deering and Minne
apolis, readily detected by the crowd,
at once laid them in the back ground.
The failure of the McCormick to
work successfully in grain which had
been beaten down by the storm and
which was picked up and bound
neatly by the Buckeye, gave the latter
machine the lead, and won for it the
highest admiration from all who wit
nessed the contest. The Buckeye
took the sympathies of the crowd
from its very first circuit of the field
and each additional round gained for
it new friends. The victory was com
piete, and the Buckeye can wear its
laurels without fear of surrendering
on any future occasion. It holds its
own on every field of battle, and
stands forth as champion of the West-
THE BUCKEYE AOAIN VICTORIOUS BY A
(Indianapolis Journal, June 20, 18 82.)
A representative of the press, seek
ing a day's recreation along the shady
banks of Blue river, yesterday, lost
his helgomite by a monster bass, and
being "put to" for bait, was attracted
to a neighboring harvest field by the
merry "click, click" of the reapers,
and, bending his steps in the direc
tion of the golden grain, upon arriv
ing on the scene, discovered that the
occasion was a gala day for the in
habitants of the beautiful village of
Morristown and vicinity. The an
nouncement of a field trial of self
binders at the Muth farm attracted a
large crowd of farmers.
The reports of recent interesting
contests had whetted the appetites of
the rural population, and several
hundred tillers of the soil were present
to witness the struggle. The follow
ing reapers entered the contesting
field: Buckeye, Esterly, Excelsior,
Osborne and Minneapolis. The Mc
Cormick, Walter A. Wood, and Deer
ing, failed to come to time, evidently
having had all they wanted of con
tests at St. Louis Crossing last week.
The fight commenced at 2 o'clock
sharp, and was continued for two and
one-half hours with a vigor and
earnestness seldom ever before seen
on a harvest field. Every machine
on the ground did good work, but the
Buckeye and Estenly led all others,
and for a time it was difficult to tell
whjch would win. But the steady,
never-let-up vim of the Buckeye man
agers and the superior excellence of
this celebrated machine soon exhibi
ted itself. The Buckeye put in faith
ful work all the afternoon, passing
around other macaines that were stop
ped for repairs, and, to its credit be
it said, it missed not a single bundle
during the entire contest, and it was
the only machine of which this can
Upon each circuit of the field the
superb work of the Buckeye called
forth cheers from the crowd. It was
acknowledged by all unprejudiced
persons that for lightness of draft,
freeness from side-draft, clean cutting
and perfect binding, the Buckeye
reached the topmost round of the lad
der. As a test of the sentiment of
the crowd upon the work performed,
a vote was taken, with the following
This vote gives glory enough to
the Buckeye for one day. And that
it was a profitable occasion is evi
denced in the fact of the sale of the
trial machine and the receipt of
orders for four others. In the minds
of the agricultural portion of the in
habitants of Shelby county, if there
has been any doubt as to which reape
in the market was the most perfect
that doubt is now removed. There
is not a farmer who was present yes
terday but is now willing to wager his
entire wealth on the Buckeye. In the
elegant language of Shakespeare, the
Buckeye "takes the cake." Its hon
ors are certainly well deserved.

KNOCKS THE PERSIMMONS AND
THAT IS WHAT THE BUCKEYE
SELF-BINDER DTD IN THE
GREAT FIELD TRIAL
A GRAND TRIUMPH FOR THE BUCKEYE.
(From the Indianapolis Jour., June 19)
For some weeks past there has been
no inconsiderable expectancy in
dulged in by the agricultural com
munity in the neighborhood of Col
umbus, Ind., over a contest of self
binders, the challenge being made by
the Osborne. The long-looked-for
occasion arrived on the 14th inst., on
which day eight machines entered for
the struggle. The Osborne lead off
in the contest, and was followed by
the Buckeye, Minneapolis, McCorm
ick, Excelsior, Walter A. Wood,
Esterly and Deering. The field of
barley in which the reapers were en
gaged was perhaps half a mile or
more in circumference, mostly level,
and soil in good condition. Before
the Osborne had proceeded half way
it was evident that she was not doing
satisfactory work, failing to do suc
cessful binding, and before she reached
the end of the circuit was obliged to
stop for repairs. The Walter A.
Wood, which had many friends at the
start, lost her good reputation before
she had made the round by getting
stuck in the mud at a low corner of
the field. Wherever the Walter A.
Wood bound a sheaf her wheel would
sink in the ground several inches, and
the crowd which had attended her and
the Osborne dropped back dissatis
fied, and followed in the wake of the
remaining machines. The heavy side
draft of the Esterly, Deering and
Minneapolis soon lost favor with the
crowd, the tongues of these machines
sawing away on the mule's shoulders
until it was painful to witness. It re
minded mi of the old song, with the
air of Aunt Jemima:
Saw my leg off,
Saw my leg off,
Saw my leg off,
With a reaping machine.
And that was literally what they
were doing. It was plain to be seen
that the contest had narrowed down
to the Buckeye and McCormick,
which had become the favorites. The
McCormick did well until at the last
quarter stretch, where it struck a
patch of grain that had been pros
trated by the storm. Here it, too,
fell short of perfect work, leaving half
the barley upon the ground, and pass
ing over the fallen grain, gave it the
semblance of the work ot a field
rooler. Here it was that the Buck
eye won the admiration of the great
crowd of farmers, gathering up and
binding the fallen grain with perfect
ease. The beautiful work of the
Buckeye up to this point was evidence
that she was bound to win, and when
she accomplished this part of her
labor so beautifully, the verdict of
the crowd was already sealed in her
The fight was one of the most
fiercely contested ever known in the
State. While there was an attempt
to bulldoze, and in a quiet way make
it appear that a vote had been taken,
which gave a certain other machine a
majority of the votes cast, the con
trary is true. The alleged vote, as
published, was never made; it was
nothing more than a quiet little
scheme worked up by a paid represen
tative of the McCormick machine,
who, with a half dozen claquers in
the McCormick interest, attempted to
secure an expression from the farmers
present, while the Buckeye crowd,
by far the largest number present,
was on the opposite side of the field,
a quarter of a mile away. With all
their persistent electioneering, we
have every reason to believe that the
few votes taken originally showed a
majority for the Buckeye, and that
the figures were so transposed as to
give the McCormick the vote really
belonging to the Buckeye. The
Buckeye folks knew nothing about a
vote being taken, and the attempt to
secure this advantage of them while
they were on the opposite side of the
field was an unfair proceeding, and
received the unqualified condemna
tion of the farmers and every honest
man. Newspaper victories will not
raise a machine in the estimation of
the honest sons of toil, who, from
years of struggle and experienc, have
minds well fitted for deciding which
machine does the best and most per
fect work, and to this class the Buck
eye appeals. During the afternoon
the Buckeye won the admiration of
the crowd by doing its work with
only two horses, while other ma
chines were tugging away with three.
A large majority were in favor of this
popular machine. From first to last,
its clean cutting, solid binding and
perfect work placed it far ahead of
all competitors on the field. The
lightness of draft of the Buckeye and
its freeness from side draft was com
plimented upon all sides. The result
of the day's work won golden opin
ions from the farmers, and, as a con
sequence, the Buckeye not only sold
the trial machine on the ground, but
several other orders were taken on
the spot. With a single exception,
the Buckeye managers were the only
ones which sold machines on the
Talk is cheap, but money tells, and
the sale of machines is the genuine
test of merit, when the prices are
equal. There were farmers presen t
who came to satisfy themselves of the
respective points of excellent of the
machines, and their decisron, in the
purchase of the Buckeye, was the
strongest evidence that it was the
best machine on the ground. The
Buckeye is winning fame on every
field of battle. It has more good
points and fewer weak ones than any
other machine. This grand victorv
for the Buckeye places it still higher
in public estimation, and continues
it at the head of all competitors.
