Martin Anderson is working on an
automatic stump puller that will pull
stumps without an application of out
side power. He keeps his machine out
of sight as he has not secured a patent
as jet, but it is understood that the
device consists of a large drum made
of water-elm wood which is well known
for its tremendous warping and twist
ing power. The drum gets its work
on the stump by a series of cog wheels
and steel cable. The wood while wet
will warp in one direction and while
dry it will warp in just the opposite
direction. Thus by alternate applica
tions of water and heat the inventor
hopes to pull all stumps within reach
of the cable. Mr. Anderson is con
vinced by some former experiences
that after a little practice the speed
can be considerably increased without
much loss of power.
