STEAM THRESHING BEE STAGES OLD-TIME HARVEST

By EARL T. WORTHINGTON

R. D. 1, Box 618, Battle Creek, Michigan

For the third time in three years, I devoted my vacation time to an Old-time threshing project.

Part of the grain had been hauled into the barn and three wagon loads Stood in the barnyard on Saturday morning, July 28, waiting for the crew to appear and start the days activities

At 8 A. M., the 22 horse power Advance Rumely Steam Engine and Case separator swung into action and by three o'clock in the afternoon the newly separated wheat was in the granary. The threshing was started in the barnyard but after a tall stack of straw had been built up under the reconditioned Case separator's blower, the engine and separator were moved into an open field.

Lloyd Smith moved in his baler and kept the mounting straw pared down by baling it up as it came from his separator.
