C.M. Blakesley bought a gasoline engine to do his water pumping and other farm work for him.
Silo filling is the order of the day. The gasoline engine is certainly a great help for the farmers to take away some of the drudgery and at the same time gives time to accomplish more of their daily labor.
Potatoes are coming in some now but digging has not commenced in real good earnest yet. May are expecting better price yet than is offered. But so far this is an open question which the near future will decide.
Mr. Florence from Nasonville exchanged a 6 horse power engine for a large one to do easier work for his new hay press.
John Ebben and Anton Ebben have both sold their farms to parties from Illinois. They will give up possession the first of March. So far they have not decided where to located, but may perhaps go to Brown County from where they came.
There are 2 or 3 more farms for sale here, good chances for young energetic farmers.
