Work to Begin on Windmill Tower in 1907


Transcribed by Norma Knotts Shaffer from microfilm of the Calhoun Chronicle dated 8/20/1907.

T.R. Stump will soon commence work on the tower for his power windmill.  It will be a great thing when done.  The power generated by a 25 mile wind will be equal to 10 horse, and will be all that is necessary to do his corn crushing, feed chopping, etc. or whatever power he may need on the farm.
