''THE SAW MILL WHISTLE''


| September/October 1952



Saw Mill

R. D. 1, Kearney, Missouri

The whistle at the saw mill is a thing of fascination. .it calls to old and young alike from over all creation. They come watch the big saw hum and see the saw dust fly. It keeps the crowds enthralled for hours and oldsters heave a sigh, and tell about the saw dust piles where in they used to play, the sweet perfume of fresh new Slabs, it seems but yesterday. Yes, the whistle at the saw mill brings to some the old time joys.... while to others, less nostalgic, it is just a lot of noise.
