I, Herbert St. Clair, am 71 and I have a son 40 years old and he has a son 6. I want the bell to keep on going down the line. In my opinion, this bell is 100 years old.

Mr. Bell passed away quite suddenly May 17. He was 79 years old and had lived in Schoolcraft, Michigan all of his life. He was a pioneer in the automobile business, building the present Ford Garage on Grand Street in 1927 and serving the community as the dealer for many years. Following his retirement from the automobile business he moved across the street, restoring and enlarging the building and equipping it as a machine shop. Here he did custom machine work for people from all over the country, especially those who were in trouble attempting to replace old partsMr. Bell always made the parts and folks were able to go home happy and back in business.

It was also in this shop where his hobby of old steam engines (and making new miniature ones) flourished. Many will remember the glorious old steam engine he fired up every 4th of July and earlier drove in the parade. Several years ago when he no longer considered it safe, he sold the machine to the company that had originally manufactured it.

Engine is 50 horsepower Case Serial No. 33646, restored and owned by John L. James (pictured) of Lancaster, Ohio.



Mr. James purchased the engine from Glenn Hill, Bethel, Ohio. It was originally used to steam tobacco beds in Kentucky. Mr. James now owns a complete threshing outfit. It will be in use on his farm hear Somerset, Ohio, this fall to thresh timothy seed.

He is the only grandson of the founder of Huber Manufacturing Company, bearing the name of Huber. Standing in the picture left to right is Mr. Amos Brandt and Mr. Francis Huber.
