  • Real steam locomotive
    No, it wasn't an illusion. There sticking up in the overgrowth of palmetto and scrub is a real steam locomotive. My wife and I had left the main road a few miles back on our way to a fishing camp on the St. John's River in Florida when I thought I saw the

  • Ox-driven outfit
    This ox-driven outfit is the only one of its kind in the world. The thresher was built in 1890. I broke the cattle to the yoke, I made, along with the bows, the forgings and chains. This outfit was a star attraction at Terraceville, U.S.A., 1959 where sev

The explosion shook the town like an earthquake. Mr. Chas. Fletcher who was in Wolf Point at the time was awakened out of sound sleep five blocks away. It blew the boiler up and ahead of the bottom of the engine, while the smoke stack hit the rail and broke it in two.

We also have a Case 80, No. 30661, built in 1913. I operated the rig at the I960 Pipestone Co.Fair. I have been wondering how many thresher men have the separator that they started with when they were boys.
