It was about 75 years ago back in Minnesota that the first "sure- enough" binders appeared. We did not have one for some time after that as our reaper had to do. But the first binders used bailing wire --- not twine. Some of those who had purchas- ed reapers converted to binders by attaching the binding mechanism to their reapers. Some others bound their grain by two men standing on the platform of the reaper and gathering up and tying the loose bundle as it passed in front of them. At about this time mowing ma- chines made their appearance and cost from $25 to $35. Horses were becoming more common and any- one who pretended to be anybody eagerly converted from oxen to horse power. Backing up was a difficult and nearly impossible act with ox-drawn equipment but could be easily done by horses, mainly because of the difference in "hitching". It was about this time, too, that flour mills became neighborhood institutions and one only had to haul grain a few miles to the mill. Most of these mills were made from grinding "burs" carefully chiseled out of rock. An ox on a treadmill furnished the motive power. Water power was used whenever available but was un- common in our locality. As the settlers increased, com- munity towns sprang up and we were only six miles from town in- stead of eighty. By that time general stores sold items locally and trade was brisk, up to a point. Over-production was discouraged. There was no market for surplus produce and farmers geared pro- duction to home needs and to a small "exchange market". Life was simple, worries were minor, a n d wholesome neighborhood gatherings were fun. But that was then. Em Maha Beck ~ee4~ Dorothy French, and Bob Vore contributed a lot by their fine job of presiding at the various sessions. The speakers, including Pete ttarper, who showed slides on his trip to Arizona, were very inter- esting and informative. I heard some very good com- ments on the high school debate on Farm Policy. Members were Arlene Altizer, Sanda Mayer, Kaaren Katches and Pony Goodson. Our thanks to Rev. Walter Spen- cer, to those who provided us with such very fine entertainment, and to members of the Institute Com- mittee. I heard some very good com- ments on the panel "Agriculture and Conservation is Everybody's Business." Those who participated from Crook county were Earl Dil- linger, Harlan Williams, Ed Jones, Mrs. Marjorie Goodson, Maxine Dillinger, and Frank Blakeman, some of whom had to work es- pecially hard because of having to substitute for those unable to be present at the last moment. Our only regret is that we didn't have as large a crowd as should have been present for such a well prepared meeting. 4-H CALENDAR Feb. 16 --- Tractor Leader's School - Lusk.
