Austin Hughes Hewing a log, new demonstration at Fall Harvest Day program A new addition has been made to the Fall Harvest Day program for Sunday, Oct. 15 at the Dubois Coun- ty Museum. Jason McCoy and his family will be dem- onstrating hewing a log us- ing the early pioneer pro- cess of taking a log from its natural rounded shape to a more or less flat surface us- ing a chopping or scoring axe and then a broad axe. This was a bygone meth- od, and used before the coming of sawmills, or if a homesteader was on a low budget and would hew their own lumber after falling it. Hewing was the standard way of squaring up wooden beams for tim- ber framing. The museum will be open from 1-4 p.m. this day for the public to observe all the activities planned for Har- vest Day. The lineup of ac- tivities for the day include shucking, shelling and grinding corn. Take some corn home for the birds. Ex- amine the old tools for pota- to and corn planting. Learn how the harvesting machin- ery worked from members of the Antique Farm Ma- chinery Club. Kids can take a pony ride. Get in line for a taste of what the Dutch oven crew is cooking up. (Could it be some of those delicious hot beans, potatoes and bis- cuits, and maybe stew, from Jim Peter.) Taste the differ- ence between honey, mo- lasses, and sorghum. Taste the famous drink of fall— apple cider. Try the home- made butter. See what is going on in the model train room as the Model Train Club prepares for the October 21 Mod- el Train Show and Swap Meet. Check out the small animals. Come see what the ladies are working on with their needles. The Stone Carvers will be busy carv- ing on their stones.
