It is not labeled, therefore people who see it have difficulty in telling what it is. It looks like a cross between a dirt scrap er and a mower. It really is a corn cutter. It is driven through a corn ild and cuts all the stocks of a row, leaving them lie in bundles on the ground. The machine was tried on the farm of Mr. D. O. Uoe on Saturday and on Mr. J. Frank Utley's to-day, and works very successfully. No doubt an attachment will soon be made to bind the bundles before they are dropped on the ground. The machine was sent out by the McCormick company of Chicago for trial. We understand local manufacturers are perfecting one something like this. —Did you ever stop. to think what a tireless letter writer a good local paper is? Week after week, reaching into year after year, it goes on telling of the marriages, births, deaths and the coming and going of the people of our town, business success or failure, accidents, crops, Improvements, meetings, in fact, events of all kinds. All is a grist that comes to the hopper of a good local paper. Why, if you were to undertake to write a letter eveiy week to your absent friend, and tell half the news that your local paper gives, you would soon give up in despair.' The supposed pleasure becomes tiresome, and the letters grow shorter, farther apart and Unally quit. Why the difference'! 1 Because with a newspaper it Is business. People in a live town recognize this and take pleasure in giving the editor news items you would never learn.—Ex. - M'p.-n.

The title of his last piece of doggerel is "Who killed Cock llobln'r 1 — Grover Cleve.", People can judge of the man's curious state of mind by hearing him recite but one of his pieces. Milton once gathered together enough money to have a score or more of his rhymes printed aud sent them to various magazines for criticism. The New York Independent, the well known religious journal, gave Curtis a long and scathing notice. People who knew him were surprised that the Independent should fall Into' the error of even noticing doggerel from such a source. —"We are going to have an early fall and a long, cold "winter," remarked a farmer to a Fond dii Lao reporter. "Aud how do you figure that out?" was asked. "In the Qrst place," he replied, "just try the skin on any of your fruit; you will flnd the apple and grapea and fruit, for that matter, with a thicker and tougher skin than you have seen for years. This is one of the Indications. This is the way nature takes care of her products. Last year apples and other fruit were so thin-skinned and tender that it was hard work to gather them without bruising them. Corn Is another of nature's signboards. The ears this yea r are protected by thicker and stronger husks than I have aoen before in years. Wheat and rye straw are tougher and wirier aad the seed pod» at* better protected than usual.
