Thomas A. Taylor Makos Record Cut
of 60 Acres In Ono Day
The writer had the pleasure
Monday afternoon of seeing the
first combine harvester operated
in Central Oregon, by a Cata-
pillar gasoline engine,.
The machine is owned and op
erated by Thomas A. Taylor
about three miles west of Mad
ras. Mr. Taylor this year has a
large amount of land in grain
and is using this means to har
vest it, which is much cheaper
than could possibly be done
with horse power.
mi i i v f
ine largest aay s cutting so
far was last Saturday, when the
machine cut sixty acres of grain
at the usual working hours.
This seems to be a record for
harvesting and threshing in this
section of the country for one
i . nil i .
uuy. mis recora cut was ac
complished with a crew of four
men, while if done by the old
way would have taken at least
25 men and possibly 50 head of
Mr. Taylor expects to farm on
a larger scale next year than he
has this, having rented an addi
tional tract of land from Messrs.
Morrow & Keenan, and lias about
1500 acres under summer fallow
at the present time. It is his
idea that this is the only proper
way io maice xarming pay.
