His collection of 11 engines at his farm home along Rt. 36 has drawn much attention for several years and has brought him visitors from several states. It has been a lot of work to keep the hie steam trartors fainter! and polished. Most of idem have been steamed up now and then to insure their condition. Kiser, an ar- | dent Republican. Rot his biggest : thrill by steaming up some of i Ihem on election night in Xovem- | her. 1352. then celebrating Kisen| hower's election by rousing the I countryside with their whistles. C'ontmrtH I*i>t«n>ntnt; Last summer he contracted I paint poisoning, while painting one of the machines, and it was then he dfcideti to hreak up his collection.

These three are a small Jirmbo. a small Case, and a little stationary engine which he calls "Butch". Four of the eneines were sold ft- hohhyists in Kalamazoo, Mich., who hauled them home on iowboy trailers. They were a Jumbo, a Nichols and Sheppard, an Advance, and an Advance Rumeley. A 'X horsepower Minneapolis ucnt to the Pukenski Brothers in St. Paul and a 16 horsepower Ru.sse'l \\as sold to Neil McClure of Macomh. 111. This was one of the newer models and was built in 1925. One of the finest engines is a Port Huron. It was sold to a tobacco grower in Kentucky and will again be in service as a sourer of steam in his curinR and packing plant. An 1S93 model, Glamor Gin, was sold to Frank Stark of Rilling, Mo. Authority on Threshers Riser's experience as a thresh- erman and later his hobby as a collector has "made him an authority on the subject of steam tractors and on the threshing art of a generation ago. He has written one book and many magazine articles on the subject. His collection has also been photo. graphed and published in many newspapers and magazines. Travelers along Rt 36 are going to miss the display of those big awkward machines which brought fond memories to many of them.

Hni ii s Force MilA/irrnnm* tip in CalhfWH HARDIN - Thursday's warm rain caused countless mushrooms to spring up i-.11 o\er Calhoun f'ounty and seekers after them had the higg-st day of the season Friday. Although thpre ha\e been I-P- ports of bir; finds for thp past two or thrpp works, they were not to be compared to the thousands of mushrooms that were bagged alter the rain. These are the later ones and are all of the white and gray varieties, always more In demand than Ihe red ones. Probably no family in Harrtin has failed to onjoy a platp of mushroom* thp past fpw days. Friends divided up with others who had to stay home, and many hunters went after the funfri com- meroially. They found ready sale for all they could find at $1 per Ration. No spring srason is complete to a local riti/en without a hij; feed or two on mushrooms, and | no one has ever hern sick from j eating- them. i A new stiRar refinery at Mossi- RP.
