  • Roy's Cartoon Book

Roy's Cartoon Book is out and selling some. It is a delightful piece of furniture. 60 some cartoons and a good laugh in every one. Just the thing to have on your coffee table for friends to read while you make dinner. It is only $1.00 from either Roy or the Stemgas Publishing Company.

We expect to have a new book out by the next issue of the Album. It is a history of one of the threshing companies and very well written and much detail by a college professor who never got agricultural machinery out of his mind. It had 80 typewritten pages and with some pictures, there will be about 90 pages in the 5x8 book. Wait and see.

This tribute to an Old Steam Engineer was entered by Mr. Mattix to be published in the Iron-Men Album. Little did we know that we would be printing it along with his own obituary.


He just gets a full head of steam, mounts the cab, gives a toot on the whistle and puts a steady hand on the throttle with keen eyes on the straight and narrow road.

He just floats away to meet THE CHIEF ENGINEER OF ALL and his old steam friends of years gone by to his home over there where there is no pain, no sickness, no sorrow, no death, but life eternal for ever more.
