Clarksville, Iowa.

I have threshed 55 years with steam power, running 28 years with
two complete outfits. I did not get to thresh last year (1951) on
account of two new combines coming in my ring and the shortage of

I’ve always owned a Port Huron compound engine and Red River
separators with Garden city feeders and 14 foot carriers. I still
have one complete out fit in very good condition with a 19 hp. Port
Huron engine. I have used the engine on many jobs of steam heating
of concrete materials and water for cement floors and walls of new
buildings, and state bridges in cold weather. Last year I heated a
10,000 gallon, tank of asphalt used to black-top streets here in
Clarksville. This year (1952) in July or August I will have the
engine out and heat another car of asphalt.
