Miss Leanna Nelson

Miss Leanna Nelson, eight-year-old daughter of N. B. Nelson, Rollag, Hawley P. O., Minnesota, and her one ton toy one-half scale Advance engine, built by her father. That's my size, Leanna.

Model Case engine built by Walter Hargreaves, Kelso, Sask., Canada. It has no governor or gears as yet but runs perfect. The boiler is steel and all seams are rivited the same as the large ones. It is 20 inches long overall. Regular Case Wolf reverse. Cylinder is 1 and a sixteenth by 1 and seven sixteenths. Three and one half finishing nails were used for spokes in the rear wheels. I have operated a thresher every year since 1913, only 3 or 4 days the past two years, said Walter.
