      Boyhood Employment Sometimes Beneficial
      By Karl Kay

      A man named Jake Bishir was
      engineer of a threshing crew that
      operated in our neighborhood several
      years, and I hung around the
      engine all I could, asking many
      questions which Jake seemed to
      take pleasure in answering. He
      even allowed me a few times to
      steer the engine as we were passing
      from, one farm to another.
      One day, we had finished at our
      farm and were proceeding to another
      one. We drove out of our
      crossroad onto the Willettsville
      Pike, turned up the hill toward
      town, then at the top of the hill
      turned left onto another narrow
      road which presently became a
      very steep hill. When engine and
      separator were fully extended on
      this hill, the engine stalled. I was
      on top of the separator and I scrambled
      to set the brake which I found
      to be useless. Then I began a hasty
      descent for I expected the whole
      outfit to run backwards down the
      hill.

      Meantime, two men sprang off
      the platform and started to place a
      large chunk of wood behind each
      drive wheel. Jake said, "Move them
      back two feet." This was done.
      Then he closed the throttle and the
      engine began to roll slowly back
      until the wheels met the wood, and
      to my horror, slowly rose over the
      chunks and started on down the
      hill. Jake yelled, "Take them
      away."

      The men hastily removed the
      chunks, when to my amazement
      Jake opened the throttle and the
      engine proceeded to pull the whole
      load on up the hill. When the machine
      was set in the new location
      and the threshing was in full operation,
      I climbed onto the engine
      platform and said, "Jake, we were
      stuck on that hill." "Yes," he said.
      "Well, the engine ran back and up
      over those chunks, then you opened
      her up and she went right on up
      the hill. How come?" Jake laughed.
      Then he said, "I guess you didn't
      notice I turned the blower on just
      as we stopped and I closed the
      throttle. During those few moments
      while we were sliding back, the
      steam pressure went up ten pounds,
      and that was enough additional
      pressure to pull the hill. Now just
      remember, with a steam engine, it's
      the last 10 pounds of pressure that
      does the work."
