Of getting a threshing rig now, so you can get in on the winter wheat threshing, and while you are
about it get a GOOD rig. The trouble with a good many threshermen is that their rig is of inferior grade,
consequently they are not making the profit they should. To make a threshing rig pay you should have
a CASE machine that is fire-proof and weather-proof. It is a machine that you can depend upon and it
will make you money. The J. I. CASE Separator is a fast and clean separator, practically all wood and
cast iron parts have been replaced with structural steel and galvanized sheet steel. The structural
steel is of open hearth quality which is many times stronger than cast iron. This material is expensive,
but it makes a machine that is indestructible through ordinary wear. The J. I. CASE Traction Engines
will give you a good deal more power than it is rated at. Its hill climbing qualities are unsurnalsed.
Engines did not used to be built with a view of pulling loads, but in the Case Engine the weight isevenly'

SEVERAL KINDS OF ACCENTS.
Observant New Yorker Noted the Dif

in the Choir.
"In so cosmopolitan a city as this," j

New York churches, "I fumy a choii
master's duties are doubly hard."
"How so?" asked his companion,
who, though less observing, lia! sat
throuch t lie same service,
"Because of t he various pronuncia

day I heanl distinctly four different
methods of pronouncing the word
mercy. It took me pome time to fig
