Another job you wouldn't want to do: Reaping and Thrashing

The Manitoba Readers.  Fourth Reader.  Thomas Nelson & Sons.  Clark Bros. & Co., Ltd,
Winnipeg, undated.
From a student reader dating, by the look of it, from the late 1800's.  Interesting that they referred to it back then as "thrashing."  This seems to be a British pronunciation.
