THE MASSEY-HARRIS MODEL “26” WITH
SAVES MORE OF YODR 6RAIH
Balanced Separation is a new harvesting principle found only
in the Massey-Harris Model "26" Self-Propelled Combine. So efficient
in this new harvesting design that the Model "26" gets all of your
grain saves whatever you cut. Up to 85% of separation takes
place right at the cylinder.
And you harvest more acres in less time when you own a Model
"26" with Balanced Separation. The "26" has greater capacity
lets you work faster, with less fatigue, and ... with savings in time,
grain, fuel, and manpower that just naturally lower production costs.
Many owners handle their harvests alone ... eliminating the usual
harvest labor problems.
Look into this new land of harvest freedom and profit.. see ua
soon for complete details on the Massey-Harris Model "26" Self
Propelled.

OPEN SATURDAY EVENINGS
It’s harvest week in Bluffton—
wheat harvest to be sure—and Tues
day was harvest time for all those
whiskers that have been flourishing
in Bluffton in preparation for the
big ’49-er Fourth of July celebration
and there’s no doubt but that
the event was by far the biggest
event of its kind ever seen here
began Saturday night with a
whopping big parade—streets jam
med through the entire business sec
tion with the attendance upwards of
10,000—that’s our estimate and if
you don’t like it, you can set down
your own figure—and wound up Mon
day night with a rodeo under the
Harmon field lights until midnight
with the big crowd polishing off un
believably huge quantities of hot
dogs, hamburgers, pop and ice cream
forgetting all about that 90
odd degree heat and oats bugs
and despite the crowds there were
no accidents or rowdyism Bluff
ton itself took on a carnival air as
the oldtime pioneer atmosphere per
meated the entire community
merchants put aside business cares,
grew beards and wore cowboy hats
—Yvomen were in pioneer sunbonnets
and garb of great grandmother’s
day best of all everyone laugh
er grew more neighborly more
friendly ... it was a belated re
action from auctere days of war and
postwar anxieties a psychological
tonic and escape from the humdrum
andn routine of everyday living, ben
efitting everyone who took part.
A Bluffton artist, Mrs. Ralph
Rammel, the former Geneva Blakes
ley, did a remarkably good piece of
work in reproducing a miniature of
old time Shannon as one of the win
dow exhibits of the '49-er celebra
tion. Working from faded photo
graphs and data supplied by early
residents, she fashioned from card
board fronts of north Main street
business places they appeared
some 75 years ago.
There was Keim’s hall, now the
Boss Mfg. Co., the second floor of
which was a favorite social center
of the early days and on the first
floor were John Martin’s harness
shop, Keim’s shoe store and the
Kramer and Jackson grocery Stein
er & Hilty’s hardware occupied the
place where the Bluffton Slaw Cut
ter company now stands. The Shel
don hotel and Langan’s bank mark

Those covered wagons in Saturday
night’s parade held a personal in

years ago out west when he was

Whiskers the real thing not
those grown impromptu fashion for
the ’49-er celebration, were in Bluff
ton last week. It was a really fine
and luxuriant crop, bushy, black,
and worn as a permanent facial
adornment by A. Singh Gill of Pun
jab, India, here as a guest of Prof.
H. D. Raid of Bluffton college. The
visitor from India happened along
last Friday evening just as some
of the be-whiskered local men were
lining up to have their pictures tak
en on Main street. He was invited
to join the group which he did—
wearing his native yellow turban
which gave a bright dash of color
to the ensemble.
The cause of music in Bluffton has
suffered a distinct loss in the death
of Sidney Hauenstein—an accomp
lished musician in his own right,
he gave unselfishly to the training
of Bluffton young people in an ap
preciation of better music. The
good which he has accomplished will
remain as an eloquent memorial to
his lifework.
Just 72 days from the time the
seed was planted, Sidney Stettler
and his sister, Mr s. Inez Neuensch
wander of South Lawn avenue had
roasting ears on their table last
Friday. So far as we know this is
the first home-grown sweet corn in
the Bluffton district. The corn was
of the Spancross variety which has
proved a successful yielder for a
number of years for Stettler who
raises a flourishing garden as a
pleasant and profitable hobby.
One day late, the W. O. Geigers
had roasting ears last Saturday.
Albert Augsburgers were third
with roasting ears home grown, on
the Fourth of Julv.

was the sparkplug of
night’s big rodeo on Harmon
an illustration of the old
that big oaks grow from
acorns. Looking over the
which gathered here for the
of July event, we recalled six years
ago when Ray Patterson, former
Bluffton barber and horse fancier
now living in Findlay inserted a
small notice in the Bluffton News
calling a meeting of all those who
might be interested in the forma
tion of a saddle club. From that
meeting grew the present organiza
tion of the Bluffton Saddle club.

How farm land values have grown
in the Bluffton district was revealed
in connection with an old deed ex
hibited in the Bluffton News win

the deed was for the purchase of 80
acres from the government for what
was later known as the old Bucher
farm some six miles northwest of
Bluffton. The price was $1.25 an
acre. Thirty years ago Bixei pur
