Here is something interesting we met up with on our trip this
summer. 8 hp. Advance engine of 1888, owned by Benny Heggrude,
Cooly, North Dakota. An S. S. Messenger thresher made at Tatamy,
Pennsylvania, in 1888 and owned by John Sandstrom, Lone Tree, North
Dakota. That is one of the neatest rigs we have seen for a long
time. It was worth the trip. Mr. Sandstrom is a most interesting
fellow. He has a museum of his own. His lawn is a dream. Paul
Bunyan and his blue calf stand serene amid stumps from the
Petrified Forest and realistic stumps made by John from concrete.
Make a trip to Lone Tree.
