  Threshing
Still, as the work of threshing is never done till the corn is separated altogether from the husk, so chastening and discipline have never accomplished their design till God's people give up every form of evil, and abhor all iniquity.
The threshing instrument is therefore a humbling token, and so long as we feel it we should humble ourselves under the hand of God, for it is clear that we are not yet free from the straw and the chaff of fallen nature.

In conventional threshing arrangements, tobacco leaves are processed by beating the leaves to break off bits of lamina, the threshed material is passed through a separator wherein the loose lamina is separated from stems, and the threshing/separation process is repeated several times to obtain as much lamina as possible.
The threshed tobacco leaves are then passed through a plurality of separators 730 arranged in series, preferably three separators, to separate the free lamina from the attached lamina.
The threshing action is accomplished when the moving teeth strike the tobacco leaves and tear or rip pieces of lamina from the leaves and openings in the basket allow certain sizes of particles to leave the thresher while maintaining larger particles in the thresher for further threshing.

 WER: Hamlin Garland [2]
In the midst of the dull, slow progress of the fall's ploughing, the gathering of the threshing crew was a most dramatic event.
Stewart had begun to farm, but it had not yet reached the point where steam displaced the horse-power; and the grain, after being stacked round the barn ready to be threshed, was allowed to remain until late in the fall before calling in a machine.
Of course, some farmers got at it earlier, for all could not thresh at the same time, and a good part of the fall's labor consisted in "changing works" with the neighbors, thus laying up a stock of unpaid labor ready for the home job.
