On September 18th and 19th, the Eagan threshing show was held on the George Ohmann farm in Eagan township, Dakota County, about nine miles from the east end of the Mendota Bridge, St. Paul, Minnesota.

Threshing and lumber sawing were the main events. Two large settings of oat stacks were threshed.

When I was there on Saturday, L. I. Belden of St. Paul Park, Minnesota was operating his 1916 50 H.P. Case, running a 36 x 60 Minneapolis separator with wing feeders. Mr. Belden was assisted by Ted Knack of St. Paul Park.

Oney Darson of Inver Grove Heights was the separator man.

A second Case engine owned by Mr. Belden was operated by E. J. Roggerman of Minneapolis.
