UNUSUAL THRESHING OPERATION: This picture shows a threshing outfit that is seldom used in Washtenaw county or vicinity. It was taken on the Clayton Carpenter farm on Chilson Rd., three miles north of Lakeland, where nine acres of cucumbers were ground up for seed last week. The cucumbers are being shoveled into a hopper by Willard Wiltse, a neighboring farmer. The seed and juices are sifted out in the revolving wire cage, falling into a moat lined with gunny sacking, and the residue is being shoveled away by Mr. Carpenter. The horse at the right is operating a treadmill, which turns the grinder and sifter.
