NEVER A FAILURE. The Bed River Valley of Minnesota and North Dakota has never had a failure of crops. It produced 30,000,000 bushels of wheat besides other cereals in 1890. Farms can be had on the erop plan, or long time cash payments. It is not an uncommon thing to pay for a farm from the proceeds of one erop. It has all of the advantages of an old country in the shape of school, church, market, postal jtrailway facilities and all the chances of a new country in the way of cheap lands, rich soil, and increase in values. It is one of the most fertile and promising regions in America not yet fully occupied. In the rush to the far west, however, this rich valley has been over-looked. It has room for a million more people. Write to F. I. WIIITNEY, St. Paul, Minn. for particulars. Publications sent free. THE SONG OP THE "No. 9." My dress is of fine polished oak, As rich as the finest fur cloak, And for handsome design You iiist !-boud see mine- No. 9, No. 9. I'm beioved by the poor and the rich, For both I impartially stitch ; In the cabin I shine, In the mansion I'm fine - No. 9, No. 9. I never get surly nor tlred, With zeal I always am fired ; To hard work I incline, For rest I ne'er pine- No. 9, No. 9. I ac ;:- vurcliased by all, With in. talments that monthly do fall; And when I am thine, Then llfs is benign- No. 9, No. 9. To the Paris Exposition I went, Upon getting the Grand Prize intent; I lef l all behind, The Grand Prize was mine- No. 9, No. 9. At the Universal Exposition of 1889, at Paris, France, the best sewing machines of the world including those of America, were in eompetition. They were passed upon by a jury composed of the best foreign mechanica! experts, two of whom were the leading sewing machine manufacturera of France. This jury, after exhauBtive examination and teBts, adjudgéd that the Wheeler & Wilson machines were the best of all, and - ed that company the highest prize offered- the GRAND PRIZE- giving other companies only gold, silver and bronze medals. The Freneh government, as a further recognition of superiority, deeorated Mr. Nathaniel Wheeler, president of the company, with the Cross of the Legión of llonor- the most prized honor of France. The No. 9. for family use, and the No, 12, for manufacturing uses, are the best in the world today. And now, when you want a sewing machine if you do not get the best it will be your own fault. Ask your sewing machine dealer for the No. 9 Wheeler Wilson machine. If he doesn't keep them, write to us for descriptive catalogue and terms. Apems wanted in il! unocenplea territory.
