Bill Schultz’s 20hp. Rumely in the town of Eldorado about
1910. That’s Bill on the left, Art Brasch (Bush) on the
footboard, Ed. Shoemaker, on the water wagon. Bill threshed 40
seasons in Minnesota, Wisconsin and Illinois. That particular
season he threshed 100,000 bushels in 50 days. A record for
Wisconsin with its long straw and frequent moves. Note the two
suction hoses. It indicates that his pump works. Note also the
shiny bright drive wheels. He had nice dry weather for it.

commonly used in Pennsylvania in the Horse Power days.
This picture was sent to us by Mr. J. C. Mattix of Oskaloosa,
Iowa. Also the article ‘One of the Earliest Automotive Steam
Engines’. A note of explanation says the inventor, Wm. L.
Hussey, who is on the left. Mr. Brewer is on the right
‘I am sending you a clipping and a picture of an old time
steam engine that I found in an Auto Parts Company News, that I
thought you might like to have for the IRON-MEN ALBUM. I have never
seen anything like it in the IRON-MEN and I thought it very good
and I would send it on to you.
‘I think you are sure doing a wonderful job and I really
enjoy every one of them. My wife says she can tell when the
IRON-MEN comes as I will not go to bed until I have read every word
in it. Ha, ha. My brother and I get it together.’
