In but a few weeks the threshing machine will be in operation here. The amount of grain threshed will not fall short of former years. Although the fore part of the season was unfavorable for rapid work, the latter part has been all that could be asked for by farmers. To be sure there are parties who would like the summer to last all next winter and would still have crops to garner in. The result of the summer's work is highly satisfactory so far. May it continue.
