When machines are thus equipped the loss is very slight, but owing to the fact that there were very few~ fires last year a great many of the machine men did not anticipate any trouble of this kind this year. consequently they were unprepared for fires. Most of the losses are covered by Insurance md the loss to the threshermen is slight, except for the loss of time while repairing the damage done by the fire. Last Saturday the machine operat- .ed by Glen Harlow was burned up. He repaired his machine and started working a~at~ Monday morning and had t~reshed eleven sacks when an. other explosion o~curred.
