up, its trained team aided its appearance on the
field, the lodged, wet clover revealed a heavy side
draft. Ihe brother Cayuga Chief—with more

nearly left the grass, they gained nothing by com

' with a powerful array of help, one party coming all
the way from Harrisbnrg, one of their machinists
j present, one agent and two sub-agents, meant to
j teach the young ideas " how tit shoot." From eir

j not send in a request for the manufactures of the
! Farmer to enlarge their factory to supply their
wants. The Hubbard had not mowed over ten

among strangers. Strong indications exist that it is
considered one of the very first machines in the
The dynamometer test, I regret, was to late to
be witnessed by the great majority of farmers, not
having a committee to decide for us, I was over
ruled in numbers, that the machinery should be
allowed to do its own work on said test. The Star
asked the privilege of an extra hand to keep the
odged grass off the Track clearer. I firmly objec
ted as the Hubbard is built to do all such kinds of
jobs without a servant. Star insisted, a man fol
lowed and pulled grass off the track clearer, all the
time under the test. Hubbard went in and done
its nwit work- alone. Cayuga Chief had a hand very
busy to keep the lodged grass from clogging. Far
mer had a man true as steel to keep off the grass,
he was only outdone by the clogging on return, all
hands stopped and another friend helped remove
the gathered clog, being great for one to masticate.
The Star, Hubbard, and Cayuga Chief, had to have
an extra splice on the tongue to make room lor the
dynamometer to work, this brought the team some
eighteen iuches further from the machine. The
Farmer had an arrangement under the tongue so
that the common short tongue was used in the test:
I objected, a-s that would give lower figures, as it
was with variation in length of tongue. The length
of cutting bar, is as described by the Farmer.
Result, two men to do the labor that one did on
the Hubbard is obtained in going in, figures as low
as the lowest, and in cutting off its beaten down

It becomes more and more manifest taut tbe As

become acquainted with its aims and operations.
From reports and letters received, it is further ev
ident that the Sunday Schools of our County were
never more flourishing than at the present time.
While we thus have occasion to thank God and
take courage, it should not he forgotten that the
work is yet hardly begun. The future results of
our efforts will find a feeble comparison in their
present beginning. It is now an undertaking ;it
will be a glorious achievement.
The Missionary makes special acknowledgement
of his obligations to the Christian young men of
Towauda, and others who, with much self-denial
have cheerfully cooperated with him in the prose
cution of the work thus far. "Instant in season
and out of season " let us, Christian friends, "wea

Towauda, July 10th, 1805.
teg"" Or. T. S. Ui DE GRAFF, Oculist and
Aurist, at Lis office opposite the Brainard House,is
constantly performing some feat of scientific sur
gery, in the way of opening people's eyes or ears,
or relieving a patient of some embarrassing defor
mity. We have repeatedly seen him bring the
blind to sight, and in one instance put into success
ful operation the organ of an ear for a child which
was born with a head as smooth as a whistle in the
place where the ears ought to be. The Doctor
bored a hole, or cut a hole, or by some sort of
magic made a hole, into which he adroitly inserted
a hearing apparatus on the similitude of those
made by nature, and 10, the chilil*3ieard. The de
light of the mother when she knew that her infant
noticed a noise can be imagined but not described.
The pleasure of Dr. Up De Graff in witnessing
such a scene as the result of his skill and science
must be worth more to him than any possible fee
he can obtain for his work. This incident was no
ticed at the time of its occurrence in the columns
of the Dally Advertiser.
On Friday last the Doctor operated for cataract
upon an old man who resides in a neighboring
township of Pennsylvania. The man, whose name
is SILAS SMITH, has been entirely blind for seven
years. He came to Dr. Up De Graff with a certifi
cate from Archibald Fellows and T. M. Watts,
Overseers of the Poor for the town of Canton, to
the effect that he had been for forty years a resi
dent of the town of Canton, was a very respectable
man, but in indigent circumstances, and unable to
incur a heavy bill of expenses for surgical opera
tion. His neighbors, out of sympathy for him,had
contributed something to partially pay his expen
ses, and they asked Dr. Up De Graff, in consider
ation of the facts, to make his charges in accor
dance with the circumstances of the patient, and if
possible in justice to himself to remit the entere
It was just such a case as the Doctor liked to get
a hold of. He therefore took AD. SMITH in hand,
and in fifteen minutes showed him the sunlight of
heaven. It is needless to say that in accordance
with the request of Mr. SMITH'S friends and neigh
bors, he remitted the entire bill, and sent him on
his way rejoicing. He not only did this in the
case of Mr. SMITH, but has done it a hundred times
before, and holds himself ready every day to do it
to all cases similarly authenticated and worthy.
We saw the man when he first began to see, and
really envied the Doctor the skill which enabled
him iu so little tune, and apparently so easily, to
accomplish such remarkable things. We imagine
also the Doctor enjoys it, for he seemed as happy
as his patient, and since he did it for nothing had
a right to be.
Dr. Up De Graff informs us that he has perform
ed more operations in this and other classes of
surgery during the last few weeks than ever before.
His rooms arc at all times thronged with patients
from all sections of the country. He never fails in
any case which is not absolutely incurable. The
fact that his large and profitable practice contin
ues to increase for year after year, rendering his
Eye and Ear Infirmary a fixed and permanent in
stitution in Elmira, is evidence enough of the real
and genuine quality of his skill. Quacks can live
and prosper for a brief time on a manufactured
sensation, but only those in any profession who
are equal to what they advertise can outlive the
test of time, aud remain permanently and increas
ingly successful. The reputation of Dr. Up De
Graft' as one of the most skillful and scientific Oc
ulists and Aurists in the whole country was long
since thoroughly established. He needs no cer
tificates to that effect, and yet so well are we im
pressed with the excellence and value of his Insti
tution that we esteem it both a pleasure and a duty
to draw the attention of the public occasionally to
it.— Elmira Advertiser.
