We are simply gifted with a goodly amount of -horse sense." We know that 
there will be a good wheat crop next yeai. because the bulk of the wheat 
mm this fall will be sown with Knipire Disc Drills. ami they make no mistake. 
Kmplre Drills are positive and absolnte. They do exactly what you tell them to 
do. The Kmplre Disc Drill is the only positive feed drill made. It will feed the 
same quantity of wheat, rye, oats or barley with ihe mum g»ar. Size of the groin 
cuts no figure with the Kmplre. You do not have to sow 'our or five acres before 
you kuow what you are doing as with other drills. The Kmplre has telescoping 
steel conductors which never break or choke up as do the old-fashioned rubber 
conductors. The Kmplre drag bars are fastened to the top of the boot, Ive inches 
higher than on other drills and trash will not choke and slop the Kmplre.

will drill corn successfully. Remember, the Kmplre is a positive feed drill, and 
the only one on the market. The grain is gently lifted into the conductors by a 
round, saucer-shaped part which is made to rotate by a square shaft. Only so 
mnch grain can be lifted and fed as this part will hold, and in order to sow a 
large or small quantity of grain per acre yon simply put a large or small cog 
wheel on this shaft, which makes the round, saucer-shaped lift revolve faster or 
slower. Kach cog wheel is numbered and guaranteed to sow an exact quantity 
of any grain per acre— wheat, rye, oats, barley. The Empire has tapering axles like 
a thimble-skein wagon, and a peculiar wheel, a wheel that we will gnarantee will 
not rnb the boxes In five years as on other drills— no, not In twenty-five years. 
Buy the best. Buy the Kmplre and take advantage of 48 years experience. The 
factory now offers yon the result of a lifetime's study and invention, viz. The 
Kmplre Disc Drill. Ask yonr grandfather about it. Ask any old citizen if he 
ever heard of an Empire Drill. I can show you an Empire Drill that is 31 years 
old and still runniug. The Empire for 48 years has had a National reputation— 
kuown and used the world over except Mason couuty. The Kmplre is not a cheap 
drill. It costs the agent a little more than other drills. Perhaps that is why 
your implement dealers have uever sold the Kmpire Drill here. Empire Drills 
are being exhibited and sold in Mason county now. I have shown this drill to at 
least 80 farmers in the last two weeks and every one Is enthusiastic in its praise. 
Call, examine this wonderful machine and couviuce yourself. It is a pleasure 
for us to exhibit It. Call and see us.

WASiirs.iTON, Aug. iV— When the

on Friday he had not received 
the reply of Spain, nor any intima- 
tion as to how soon the reply might 
be expected. The French ambas- 
sador hod not been heard from 
throughout the day, and he, as 
well as our government officials, was 
waiting for Spain to give the 
final response. Two days have now 
passed without a word officially from 
Spain, cither in the way of inquiry or 
response. From this it is clear that 
the Spanish cabinet fully realizes the 
time for argument, counter proposals 
or moiliiication has gone by and

Mischief Wronght hy Too Pro-

The Wftf Department is Much Worried 
Over the Situation at San- 
tiago de Cuba, 

Washington, Aug. 6 — The war de- 
partment is much worried over the 
situation at Santiago, not from fear of 
any additional danger from the fever, 
but from the effect upon the soldiers 
of the action of the officers in almost 
creating a panic. The officials state 
that they have been working for weeks 
to prevent just what seems to have 
happened, a stampede among the sol- 
diers, and if the men get disorganized 
it may cause trouble. 

Soldiers could not be rushed pell 
mell on board the transports, because, 
if they did the conditions of the 
Seneca, Concho and other transports 
which came back with the wounded 
would be repeated, and again it was 
not possible to remove all the soldiers 
at once while the Spanish prisoners 

made for the camp at Moutau* Point 
and two weeks ago work was begun 
on hospitals at that place. The war 
department notified Gen. Shafter fully 
two weeks ago to get ready to move 
his troops and only gave orders to 
send them to the mountains pen. ling 
their removal altogether. Orders were 
under way to experiment by sending 
parts of cavalry home on the Louis- 
iana, as it was thought advisable not 
to transport the entire army 
until it was found that 
the e Louisiana made a suc- 
cessful trip. There was no intention 
to keep the army at Santiago de Cuba 
during Amrust, and transDorts were 
ordered to leave that place justassoon 
as possible after the Louisiana had 
made her trip. The action of the 
nfflefN in sending the round robin, 
the officials of the war department 
here claim, has stampeded the soldiers 
and destroyed to some extent dis- 
cipline and order, which is necessary in 
the army. However, the officials at 
the war department are now straining 
every effort to hasten the return of 
lien Shafter's troops, and they will 
be removed as soon as they possibly 
can be. It will be impossible to re- 
move all of them as long as the Span-
