The portable saw mill regularly featured at the Mt. Pleasant
Reunion. It is owned & operated by Tom Traut and is a Jackson
Mill. They changed engines frequently but at this particular moment
it is powered by a double Nichols & Shepard. This is a feature
that never fails to draw a good audience. Only part of the folks

The outfit of Mr. Harvey Hoffman, Rheems, Pennsylvania. Taken in
1910 near Mt. Joy, Pennsylvania. It is a Peerless ‘T’
engine, Peerless Thresher and an Ohio Baler. Mr. Hoffman’s
thresher is 60 years old and the baler is 50 years old. He got the
machinery from his father, the late Samuel Hoffman, Mt. Joy, Pa.,
Who did much of the threshing for the farmers in this part of the
country. Harvey is standing on the baler in this picture. Note the
dust collector on this machine. They were quite popular in many
sections in the East where barn threshing was the rule.
