CHAMPION NONPAREIL MILLS, For grinding corn meal, corn cob and shuck, oats, mixed feed, spices, malt, bones, &c. The Nonpareil Mill for general grinding purposes—both for the farmer and mechanicfor grinding, crushing, and pulverizing purposes, being a powerful, durable, and simple mill, and not liable to get out of repair ; enabling the farmer to do all his meal and feed grinding at home, thereby saving both time and toll in going to mill. This mill possesses some new and valuable features not

IPATENTED found in any other. The teeth are Y shape, and so constructed that each tooth, as it pulverizes, forces the meal or other substances, towards the periphery and discharging edges, and does not depend upon the centrifugal force at all. The corn and cob crusher being separate from the grinding plates, is more substantial, durable, and effective; requiring less power than when cast on the plate ; it also operates twice at each revolution. The journals have regular caps, and are on each side of the driving pully, the lower end, or supporting part, being cast, with the frame of the mill, in one entire piece, giving it great strength and durability ; it is not liable to choke, runs in either direction, and can be instantly changed from grinding fine corn meal to cob and corn. The Nonpareil is adapted for fine grinding as well as for feed.

We present a cut and a short description of Mattice & PexFIELD'S DRAIN TILE MACHINE


This machine no: only grinds he clay, and in old; th: tile, but places them upon the drying bo srd«. 4, represents the die ; 3, ti, tile; and 2, the drying boards, which are cut the length of three tiles, and placed upon the carriago, 1, the portiou of which, under the machine, is covered with an end. less b.-It, upo i wbich these boards are placca, on the rar of the carriage, and are drawn und:r by the tiles as ibey issue from the die, and deposit tb mselves upon be boards. 7, 7, is a frame held together by the handles, across which small wires are rirtichtd; 8, 8, for the purpose of cutting ibe tiles. This frame is movable, for the purpose of cutting the tiles where the end of the toard occurs 6 is the shaft wbich passes through the machine, opon which is on koires are fas tened to grind the clay. To ibe lower ends eccentrics are fastenı d, that move the plunger in the clay box, to which the die, 4, is fas tened. 5, is the lever by wbich the cut-off plate is driven over the clay box, after it is filled, w prevent the clay from pu:bing

A, is the sweep. The machine makis a plunge at erery turn of the fliaft. Less than one-fourth of the time required to make a turn of the shaft, makes a plunge, which gives the man that cuts theni ample time to do so, and set them in drying racks, which are placed upon the band barrows for the purpose of moving them when dried to the kilo.


For flour, corn, and feed, by horse or any other power.

DESCRIPTIOX.—The grinding surface of the Conical Burr Mill is made of the best imported French Burr stone, conical in shape, the bed stine beine formed out of solid cubical block, see cured in a square cast-iron case, in the center of which Burr blocks the concave grinding surface is formed, as above r, presented, in Fig. 1, at B and 0. The running stone-stone, or cone, is one solid block of burr stone, securely fastened on the mill spindle, as above represented in Fig. N. Both the running and concave stones are fitted to each oiber, and then ground in to. gether, which forms the grinding surface : into which surrows are cut at regular intervals, to (noilitate the discharge of the flour or meal ; the whole being firmly fastened on an iron framo as above represented in Fig. 2, having no joints or wood in the entire frame, which establishes a solidity and durability beyond any other portable mill known. The stones are dressed in perfect order for immediate use, to be workid with a belt as wide as the mill pully, drawn from any kind of power sufficient to give the necessary motion to the mill, as designated below.

The above cut represents W. A. Flanders' Patent Movable Comb Bee-Hive. It is upon a modified plan of the celebrated Huber Hive, the frames opening like a book, with surplus honey boxes above. In swarming, this hive is divided by uplifting one-half and replacing it with an empty part.


Patented April 7, 1863. DESCRIPTION.—This fence is constructed of pannels made in part by means of braces interlaced diagonally, which pannels are so united together at the ends, that the fence may be thrown into a zigzag position, which insures great firmness without the posts entering the ground, and also provides for opening the fence at any desired point for the passage of a team, in a manner similar to the opening of a gate. The braces are made about four feet four inches long, two inches wide, and full three-eighths of an inch thick ; and are nailed to top and bottom rails, made of stuff about one and one-fourth inch thick, and about three and one-half inches wide, one of which rails is inserted in the standard, and both are pailed to the post inserted between them at the other end.

EXPENSE OF MATERIALS.— When lumber is worth ten dollars per thousand, the cost of lumber and nails for one rod of fence complete will not exceed thirty-eight cents. The pannels can be made by any farmer at a rapid rate, with the help of a bench frame. The advantages of this fence over all others :

1st. It is very strong; wind cannot blow it over if properly set up and anchored to the ground at the corners with a small wooden hook.

2d. It is very light--a team can haul enough at a load for thirty rods of fence. 3d. It is rapidly put up, and as readily opened at any desired point as a gate.

4th. The cost of building and materials, as stated above, make it the most desirable fence in use.

In the class of Tools and Household Implements there were 58 entries, with the following awards :
