Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - September 5, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta -Tuwfey, S, THE LHWMDGE HBALD S POT-LUCK RICKARD Sleep-walking is my little girl's caper. She gets more exercise than a postman. Christine is her name and sleep-walking is her game. Little Miss Sleepy-Steps prowled around every holiday stop we made. She walked in Trail, West Vancouver, Squamish and Sicamous. I know Christine will grow out of it, because I did. My greatest sleep-walk was at Birdseye Ranch. One evening, after a hard day in the hay fields, the cook put Spanish Rice on the table. Well, the haying crew was really enjoying Uiat Spanish Rice and 1 was too. I loved it, every deli- cious, tasty morsel. Uncle Max used to say, "It costs me more to board 'you than to pay your wages." I ate enough Spanish Rice to fill Chief Mountain. Well, sure, we worked hard and we all had good appetites. Never one to make a pig of myself, the sixth helping was my last, until I started sleep- walking. Victor Smith watched me descend the stairway. I didn't miss one step. Heading for Spanish Rice, in my dreams, I was as sure-footed as a Rocky Moun- tain Goat at the salt-lick. Then Vic saw me sit down at the long cook-house table. He heard me say: "Another helping please." He swears, to this day, I said that. And I believe him. After supper, sweet dreamland supper, 1 headed out for the barn. That's the truth. I headed out for the barn. Vic followed me, darn near killing him- self with suppressed laughter. We didn't wear pyjamas in those days. And we didn't wear undershirts. Fact is, I must have been a bit chilled in that midnight air. Moon- bathing. But I had work to do and I headed for the barn, about 300 yards away from the cookhouse. No, I didn't bump into that little stand of trees, nor did I trip up on the old haymowers and bull- rakes that were strewn about. Inside the barn, I reached for the harness. Then It was thrown into the was a horse there, in my dreams, maybe Maud, or maybe Min- nie. Both beasts were harnessed. Vic didn't help me, as usual. Minnie snorted but I didn't wake. It was time to do the milking. I wandered out of the horse area, around the building, and into the cow barn. Then I sat squarely on the milking stool. I bal- anced perfectly, like the Great Wallenda tight-rope walking across Niagara Falls. Yes I did. And had there been a tight-rope to the haylofts, I could have walked it in my slumber. Then Vic saw me milk the cow, strip her down, kick the cat out of the barn and head for the sep- arator. Well, Vic's laughter had changed to serious ad- miration. He watched me step adroitly over the cow gutter without spilling a drop of milk and he couldn't believe it. He led me gently back to bed. And there, dear reader, is where I'm heading now. And a special goodnight to all those hay hands who are lucky enough to eat Spanish Rice. Sweet dreams. Constant wet conditions can cause damage to legumes Cbnsfant wet condition can be a serious condition for for- age legumes. Most permanent pasture and haying operations across the country depend on a legume or legume grass mixture for their long term success. However, low-lying areas which are liable to be flooded for several days are dangerous places for certain legumes they may not survive. Dr. D. II. Heinrlchs, head of DM (oragc production section of the Swift Current, Sask. Re- search Station, surveyed the flooding tolerance of common agricultural legumes and of- fers the following advice. "BIrdsfoot trefoil ami the red and white clovers have the best he says. "Three can safely stand 15 to 20 days of constant flooding. "Alfalfa rates a respectable third, with a survival rate ing 15 days under water. "Sweet clover and Cicer milk- vetch are poor and Sainfoin very intolerant of flooding."
