The threshing machines keep the path-masters busy fixing up the culverts.
Al Nonhof seems to be satisfied with things at the factory here and didn’t have any notion of going elsewhere, but last Monday morning after having loaded his milk and just after a bright flash of lightning and a hard clap of thunder the team thought they’d haul milk where they pleased. So they ditched one-can before they reached Truman Davis’ and the other two at Foemmel’s corner, leaving only 11 pounds in the cover. From there they went straight to Granton and took their places in a wagon shed where Al found them a little later.
