Morris Blomgren of R. 1, Siren, WI 54872 sent us the two photos
on this page. The top one is a 25 HP Mogul that Morris bought for
Jim Withers of Osakis, MN some years ago. It had been purchased new
by Willie Lindgren of Trade River, WI to generate electricity and
was also used on a sawmill. Thereafter it was sold to a fellow near
Trade River who used it for grinding feed. Jim is on the right
side: ‘He had it loaded too heavy on the front, so when we got
to Grantsburg, WI, the tires were so hot you could not touch them.
He told me this was the smoothest running engine he owned.’

A picture taken near Elkton, MN about 1912-14- It is a 1
cylinder tractor, 25 HP with 2 opposing pistons in 1 cylinder- hit
and miss. Is it a Kansas City ‘Lightning?’
