Reinforcing Corn Crib
Forty-two years ago when Walter
Thimgan was a lad of 13 years old,
a corn crib was built at the farm
home and as Walter grew to man
hood and after he became a man and
farmed for himself, this same crib
served to house the crops which he
grew. Then, as time went on. a new
roof had to be placed on the struc
ture, but still it served very satis
factorily as a granary for the farm
stead. Lately the building has de
veloped a disposition to bulge at the
foundation, and Walter was in town

and an iron plate to reinforce the
building and have it ready for the
