T. GRANT CO. MONDAY ONLY! THRESHING MACHINE AT WORK ' The long belt from the flywheel of a steam engine last steam powered thresher rig in area is operated frames Albert Drcxelhis, left; as he and brother John, on farm off Fosterburg Road. It recalls a time when right, and L. A. Birkenstock thresh winter oats. The such rigs went from farm to farm to harvest the crop. Steam Thresher Used On Fosterburg Farm Nostalgia for the old way of dong things brings volunteer helpers from as far as Greenville vlien the Drexelius brothers on 'oslerburg Road begin threshing vheat and oats with their steam hresher. The three brothers, John, Al- )ert and Joseph, use the old hresher on their farm near Clo- -erleaf Golf Course because they eel it does a better job, though they occasionally use a combine or threshing too. Though the steam engine that powers the separator is not very old, dating from 1940, they are getting harder to find because here aren't many in use anymore o winnow grain. In the old way of threshing vheat, the stalks must first be cut with a binder and shocked, or picked up after the binder and brought to the steam rig. The Drexilius brothers use a tractor- drawn wagon to do this, because heir horses are not accustomed o the steam engine and mal become restless. The animals' well being is al:o considered since wheat harvest- ng is done in the hottest part of the summer and horses could become overheated working in the fields. Winter oats were being threshed Thursday, the wagons standing under a shed for protection from the occasional showers. Breezes kept swirling the chaff in every direction as the fine powder was blown from the stack of the separator. Operating the steam engine was Perry Miles of Greenville, who lias been interested in the old rigs for years. He brought his grandsons along to learn the "trade" before it completely dies out. Working on the separator, turning the stack to build the pile of itraw, was L. A. Birkenstock, also of Greenville. 24 File for City Labor Jobs -So, Far • Interest in the Alton Civil Serv ce Commission examination Aug. 6 for applicants seeking to qualify 'or employment at city laborers continues to mount.
