  • Model engine
    Here is a Model built by someone. The builders name was not on the picture and it got separated from the letter or other identification. It is surely an interesting picture of a well done job. Maybe the builder will write us and give some specifications.

Here is Marcus Leonard of Salina, Kansas, wanting an explanation-page 13, March-April 1956 issue in the second column. Here, in part is Mr. Leonard's letter:

In my description of Jacob Herl's engine in my recent correction, did I, in the original manuscript, describe his engine as a 21 horse? If I did, I think it is time for me to write nothing more.

Jacob Herl's engine was an Advance Compound 26 and bought in 1907. The first Advance Compound 21, No. 10991, was built in 1908 and I sold it to Glick & Best. The Chattel Mortgage was recorded in Lincoln County, Kansas, June 29, 1908. That was the only Advance I ever saw, plugged for an indicator.'
