Harvcstcr-Thrcshcr Operated by Povcr
Drive rom McCormiclt-Dccring Tractor
WITHIN fhe List few years there has developed a demand
among many grain growers for a lighter harvester-thresher
with a somewhat smaller capacity than the standard Prairie
type and which would take the power for its entire operation
from a McCormiclc-Dccring 15-30 tractor. The machine illus
trated here exactly meets these requirements.
The McCormick-Dccring power-drive harvester-thresher
cuts n 10-foot swath, but instead of operating the cutting and
threshing mcchantem by means of an auxiliary engine, the power
take-off equipment of the McCormick-Deering tractor is employed
to furnish the power for this purpose, while the tructor pull3 the
machine over the field.
This arrangement of power having first been developed to
operate a grain binder or com picker, has been given the most
severe test on the harvester-thresher and found to work out
most successfully. Its convenience is beyond question because
it eliminates the weight and care of an auxiliary engine. Every
prospective buyer of a harvester-thresher will fully appreciate
' the advantages in this machine.

Newt Hedin is bu y with the Irri
gation system on the Flat. Recently
he tried the experiment of melting
mow by letting water into the banks
with disasterous results. The snow
backed the water into the ditches and
waahed out banks. It required the
combined effort; of a large force of
men to remedy the breaks and now
Newt will be willing that nature be
allowed to pursue her ways without
hindrance on his part.
A bull is described in Webster's

be compelled to live alone without
human company.. Then they could

have at la t gotten together on an
acre of ground near the reservoir.
The acquiring of that acre has been

time, and now that Maupin will be
able to have title to it presages an
early enlargement of the reservoir.
At present there is hardly water
enough for houshold use in the even

day, and with a larger reservoir the
question of a hortagc of water sup
ply will- have passed into the discard.
