Champion Unequal for Light Drift, Easy
Handling and Durability
Highland, Ohkgok, Nov. 8, 1898.
MitchtU, Lewii, A Staver Co.,
OrNTt.KMKN: I dcBiro to ofl'er this as
my testimonial in behalf of the 6-foot
Champion Binder and Bundle Carrier
purchased from you this year. For light
ness in draft ana ease of operation, sim
plicity in construction and durability,
will say that no machine to my knowl
edge is its equal, nor near it. Having cut
150 acres of grain, the machine did not
cause me tive minutes' delay, conse
quently not a cent for repairs. All the
Champion machines put in my neigh
borhood have given equally good satis
faction. In fact, I want no butter uin-
' chine than the Champion.

All the farmers we out for are more than
pleasod with the work, and have promis
ed us their entire cutting for another
year. Can cheerfully recommend the
New Champion Binder to my friends,
acquaintances, and fellow farmers who
expect to buy Binders in 1801).
