Corn Husking

Source: Crawfordsville Review 23 Nov 1895 p 8
“Linden News” - Talk about fast corn huskers and we have them here. HC Fraley in one day husked 121 bushels and 7 pounds weighed here at the elevator.  Charles Smith husked in one day 112 bushels.  Clio Stephenson husked 117 bushels and scooped it all out of the wagon all in one day. Then we have our common huskers that husk from 60-100 bushes day in and day out and attend to their teams.  Where is there a place that can beat the above and do honest work?
