This is a water tube boiler at Lake Kankee, Yukon, between White Horse Y.T. and Toke Junction, Alaska. The boiler is supposed to have been removed from a small steamboat used by the lumber people before the first World War. It is hard to believe anything like this can be so far inland from the rest of the world. The boiler is made from Crane pipe fittings and a head and does not look like it was ever much good. It is said to have been used by the lumber people prior to 1910 on a steam launch and has been at this spot over 50 years. This lake is famous for fine fishing and has its own air strip and hotel, light plants, etc.

The bus stop is about a mile from the Alcan highway far up in Canada with the next house maybe miles away. The reason we saw the boiler was because the bus had to leave the highway and leave a lone little Indian teenager at this spot. The driver honked his horn and soon a canoe came across a small branch-like stream to pick her up. This was a mile or so from the bus station at the lodge as we made a semicircle getting off and back on the Alaskan Highway. All of this is north of White Horse Yukon Canadian Territory.

I patented the automatic drag for a corn sheller. I may get a picture of some of the first clover hullers I mounted.

This is a picture of an M M sheller and a power plant I made up in about 1929. The sheller was the first year the rubber was on.



I have put in just like others done things, not much credit. The things have changed.
