Several calls were received from Nielsville farmers today to secure shockers to set up the grain which was scattered all over the fields as a result of the hurricane there Monday night. Nearly all the shocks in that section were blown down and, in addition, many of the grain stacks were also blown over and the bundles must be gathered up again.
Marcus Nelson, of Climax, who has moved his threshing machine near Shelly ready to begin threshing operations and left it standing on a graded road, had it blown over in the ditch and badly demolished.
At Climax there was hardly any wind and no damage was done to the shocks.
