The gasoline traction engine of the Crookston Manufacturing Co., is now plowing on the M. R. Brown farm west of the powderhouse north of the city, and is doing great work. The company now has a new engine nearly completed, which will be sent to the Minnesota State Fair for exhibit, and it's work as a plow puller will be demonstrated there. There is no question that the engine will attract a vast amount of attention, as one of the greatest expenses of farming operations has without a doubt been vastly reduced.
