They had a Fordson tractor for power, and it was acting as if it were tired; It would puff, steam, and make a general fuss. Our guess was that there was something wrong with the timer. When wo called last week Wednesday at Herman Dreesman's, two miles west and 2% miles north of Titonka, he kidded us about one time In the spring when the roads were bad, and We drove to his place with team and buggy and tried to sell his father, Eno Dreesman, a tractor, In those days tractors were Just coming into style. We were at Geo. G. Eden's, two miles south and 1 3-4 miles east of Titonka, Saturday. The men were putting wood in the basement.
