Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - July 10, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta July 10, 1973 -THE UTHBXIDGE HEKALD f Mechanic in 30s Concluded from Page 8 ing the night had left a thick coating over everything, in- cluding the tractor insides we had so carefully covered. half-grown lambs were performing gymnastics over and around the tractor and benches, and when the door was opened they did a farewell skip over the works on the way out. There was nothing else to do but start picking up pieces we could see, then get forks and rakes and begin sifting through the dust and sheep droppings for bolts and things we couldn't see. An Reminder of the past This Baker windmill, built in Windsor, Ont., could have been much in demand during the past month. Al- berta's windiest June on record. But like other wind- mills throughout Western Canada, this Vulcan district mill has gone the way of Edsels and Long used by rural residents to either pump water for gardens and home use or to charge batteries during era of 32-volt sys- tems which were made obsolete by the encroachment of modern electricity. As a reminder to new generations, the Fort Macleod Historical Association has erected a similar mill- to pump water for the trees surrounding-Midnight Stadium.

Phone 327-5020 old bed spring separated out a lot of small bolts and nuts and washers, and the few we never found were repaired at a town garage. The boys all pitched in and by mid-after- noon we were ready to re- assemble toe mess. Several got into a short heated argu- ment about whose fault it was over why the fence fell down, but it didn't last very long. I couldn't understand much of it as their private debate was mostly in their native language, otherwise they always talked English on account of me. I expect the added pressure of being pen- ned in a smaller space caused the break, and a strong panel fastening would have saved a lot of trouble. I never got called back to the tractor so the sheep ma- nure we must have left in- side couldn't have caused any harm. As I drove away next morning my hands were still' smarting from too long in distillate washing fluid, and my nose held sheep aroma for days after. T had idea then why the oldtime cattlemen were so bitter against sheepmen, they couldn't stand the smell. The boss would be wondering what became of roe, but this was just one of the many jobs that would take longer than expected over the com- ing year. I've never been aWe to face a lamb chop since, and as I've heard some say, "just a blattin' bunch of smelly woolies."
