CHURCHILL . & . DANFOrJ < DS « IMPROVED MODE OF HARVESTING . THIS mode of Harvesting consists in threshing the grain while standing , without cutting the straw , and saving the grain in the chaff ; no cutting machinery being used . This improvement has been thoroughly tested during the past harvest ; its success has surpassed the hopes of the most sanguine , and will , in a short time , bo the only mode of harvesting . The machinery is simple and durable , and requires but two men and four horses to operate a machine that will harvest , on an average , from ten to fifteen acres per day . The advantages of this mode of harvesting are , a saving of three . fourths ofthe usual expense of harvesting and threshing , having the grain ready for immediate marketing , saving the grain free from tho dust attached lo the butts of the straw , and leaving the straw as a manure on the field in a good condition to be ploughed under . The arrangement of , the machinery is suc...
