Page fhtii 3 i-iiiiiii iM.ndiiil'i rJcConm5c!i-IIDeoi?5n5 Harvcstcr-Thrcshcr Operated by Povcr Drive rom McCormiclt-Dccring Tractor WITHIN fhe List few years there has developed a demand among many grain growers for a lighter harvester-thresher with a somewhat smaller capacity than the standard Prairie type and which would take the power for its entire operation from a McCormiclc-Dccring 15-30 tractor. The machine illus trated here exactly meets these requirements. The McCormick-Dccring power-drive harvester-thresher cuts n 10-foot swath, but instead of operating the cutting and threshing mcchantem by means of an auxiliary engine, the power take-off equipment of the McCormick-Deering tractor is employed to furnish the power for this purpose, while the tructor pull3 the machine over the field. This arrangement of power having first been developed to operate a grain binder or com picker, has been given the most severe test on the harvester-thresher and found to work out most successfully. Its convenience is beyond question because it eliminates the weight and care of an auxiliary engine. Every prospective buyer of a harvester-thresher will fully appreciate ' the advantages in this machine.

Newt Hedin is bu y with the Irri gation system on the Flat. Recently he tried the experiment of melting mow by letting water into the banks with disasterous results. The snow backed the water into the ditches and waahed out banks. It required the combined effort; of a large force of men to remedy the breaks and now Newt will be willing that nature be allowed to pursue her ways without hindrance on his part. A bull is described in Webster's dictionary as "the male of any spec ies of cattle, also of any large quad ruped, or of the whale." But there are bulls in human shape. That i pec ies is one who force, his opinions on jthem, or who drives others as a ;lavc owner, or who shows no con ideration for the feeling or health of members of hia family or neigh bors. It were better that such men be compelled to live alone without human company.. Then they could "bull" llinniiflves into believing they vr bing ''bullied" instead of bing a -bull."

Pill made the con nection, pronounced the job 6. K. and left. Later a couple of other electricians (?) were called in to pass on the job. They found it all wrong; tinkered with it and finally put it back tho way Rill hnd left it. Upon bring asked regarding the work the electrician in charge of the ' Portland telephone exchange said that Bill's way was the right way. Again our worthy mechanic wins out. The city fathers and Bill Staats have at la t gotten together on an acre of ground near the reservoir. The acquiring of that acre has been one of a small controversy for some time, and now that Maupin will be able to have title to it presages an early enlargement of the reservoir. At present there is hardly water enough for houshold use in the even ing after people have irrigated all day, and with a larger reservoir the question of a hortagc of water sup ply will- have passed into the discard.
