344 THE NATIONAL GEOGRAPHIC MAGAZINE THRESHING A HANDFUL OF WHEAT It is obvious that the farmer attaches value even to such a meager quantity. It will represent the labor of himself and his wife for half a day. WINNOWING THE GRAIN While her husband flails the straw for the last few grains, the wife goes over the chaff, a bowlful at a time, to separate the wheat. It may be noted that the chaff is blown by the wind out of the line of falling wheat. This woman feared to pose before the camera, but eventually consented, to please the "Gringos" who wanted the picture to show to their people.
