The yellow mill is a Kelly Duplex, No. 2, made in Springfield, Ohio. I got the mill one week, and the next week, in the January issue of GEM was the information about when they sold out to Superior. One and a half weeks later, I received the American Farm Implements and Antiques Encyclopedia, and on page 144 was the history of the Kelly 1888.

The mill was rusted and frozen up pretty badly, but not busted. Yellow is the original color. The mill stands 36 inches high.

The grain box was copied from the implement book, but made smaller. The history of this mill was easy, thanks to such publications.

The orange mill is a Montgomery-Ward. It had been taken partly apart and it was rusted pretty badly. On the burr release handle is marked February 2, 1909. The hopper extension is poplar. The unit stands 29 inches high.
