MACHINE THAT CUT AND BINDS CORN
Henry LEH, of Allentown, has a corn cutter and binder at work on the Fountain Farm, near that town, which cuts and binds the corn stalks and does the work of more than ten men. Mr. LEH says he will take from 25 to 30 tons of
fodder from an acre. These corn stalks with the cobs are cut by electric power into pieces and during the winter are fed to the cattle. The fodder looks like sour kraut. The entire crop of corn ears, fodders and stalks, are saved for use during the winter.
