tirely, too small an item to be taken into
consideration especially to be offered as
an apology for public sales, and that too
when the matter so far as cash is concern
ed, is altogether in favor of leaving the
lands subject only for pre-emption.
No, no; that won't do. The whole
secret of the object of land sales is, that
the lands may be offered and returned as
such, and thus be subject to private en
tries. Then eastern capitalists can come
in with their thousands of acres of war
rants, and take up all the vacant lands!
We repeat, that in our opposition to
land sales, we are not fault finding with
those who have chosen the vocation of
dealing inlands as one by which they
$ain a livelihood or make money. It is
legitimate business, in which it is every
man's right to engage if he choose.
But the question with us is, is such a pro
cedure at this early day'an act of justice
to those who have, and are now becoming
ectual settlers ? and will it advance the
future interests and welfare cf the coun
try ? We are confirmed in the opinion it
irill not." Hence our opposition.
While we think a great wrong isbeing
infkted upon the country by ordering
sales, we do cot entertain the strong
fears that many do, of homes being taken
from- the settler at the sales. It is the
after consequences we regret. In addi

lands leing bid off at the sales, we be

UPRIGI1T ST DAM SAW MILL.
This mill commands the universal admiration of saw
mill men everywhere. As its merits become known, the
demand for it increases. Orders are coming from every
section of this country, Canada, Cuba, and South Amen
ca. It is suited for every section of the world wherever
there is timber to be sawed, no matter of what character
how hard, how large or how small. Two extensive ma
nufactories are now engaged in building these mil Is, yet
it is almost impossible to turn them out as fast as tbey
are wanted. Tbey embrace several valunble patents
and improvements, and combine all of the following ad'
Simplicity Both the mill and power are so simple ii
their construction tbat anyone of ordinary mechanical
ability can comprehend them, put them up and run them
without danger or difficulty.
Portability The whle establishment can be very
quickly takeu apart and put together, thus rendering it
easy to be moved from place to place as desired, and sav
ing the necessity of drawing the logs a long distance to
Durability lt is constructed iu the most solid and
substantial manner, runs perfectly still, is not liable to
get out of order, and will last for years without repair.
Kamaitu It win saw taster than any other upright
upright mill. The speed of the saw is about three hun
dred strokes per minute, and the feed from one-eighth to
three-quarters of an inch per stroke. Thus, at a medium
speed the saw will cut through a log twenty-four feet
long in about three minutes. From this data any one
knowing the character of the timber can calculate bow
much lt will do.
Effiieieneyr It does its work well, cuts smoother and
straighter than the ordinary mills, and the arrangement
of the saw is such as to render it utterly impossible for
