Here is lo-l cated a huge double elevator to! take corntoom the trucks bringing it from the field, and conveying it in buckets and on belts to sorting rooms on the second floor, where the windo'ws -are located. Here there fis' space for 80 sorters and graders, 40 on each side, and the corn comes pouring out of sorting bins onto tables in front of the workmen. Inferior ears are separated and the perfect corn placed in baskets. It is inspected once more, and then goes to the drying rooms below. Doors permit Inspection as the corn Is drying. In order to speed this drying process, heated air can be forced in and around all of the storage area. In the back or north part of the building is a huge corn-sheller, in a pit. Corn from the drying chambers Is carried by belt to the sheller, and the shelled corn is carried by belt to the treating and sacking quarters located in this part of the building. All through-the building there are separated storage rooms so that all the crop would not be lost in case of fire. This picture, taken some three weeks ago by Brown's Studio, does not show the outer coating of composition material. The building is being rushed to .completion to be ready for the new crop now being raised on some 800 acres in the county.
