History THE PERKINS JOURNAL, Thursday, May 3, 2012 - A5 .=,sot= T=.= ' Water Storage Tanks Chopping wood and carrying water are held by some to be the path to enlightenment. Perkins homesteaders, however, seem to have found these tasks to be the path to drudgery, and they mechanized both processes as soon as possible. It would not be long before wood was being cut with buzz-saws and water was being transported around the farm through pipes fed by elevated l! storage tanks. Two types of well pumps were t available to the settlers. Lift pumps only raised water to the level of the open  ,._ spout from which it flowed outward Lift Pump through gravity. Force pumps, on the other hand, were equipped with a pipe connection (typically opposite the spout) which carded the water further upward into a storage tank. A valve on the spout and a packing nut around the pump rod forced the water to leave the pump only through the pipe to the tank. Both types of pumps could be operated by hand or windmill power. The storage tanks were made Force Pump of wood or steel and were usually fitted with lids. The tanks could be located on the windmill tower, in the barn Wood tank loft, in the house attic, or on a separate elevated platform. The need for maintenance access and the fact that water weighs eight and one-third pounds per Steel Tank gallon eventually made the last option the most feasible.  : As soon as it could be arranged, water = ,qll, was piped into the farmhouse kitchen or pantry. A cast-iron sink and drain pipe carried the wastewater away. As convenient as this arrangement was, mid-summer in Oklahoma had a way of giving storage-tank water some memorable flavors. So, July" and August would usually find pitchers of cool drinking water being carried directly from the pump into the house and jugs of coot drinking water being carded directly from the pump into the fields. Perhaps this did result in enlightenment, but it certainly became the stuff of fond lr -- memories.  The Farm Museum at the Oklahoma B Territorial Plaza could use photographs r of early water storage tanks and U windmills. If you have family : photographs of any of these, and you  would allow them to be enlarged for  display in the Museum, please call   Bob or Norma Constien at 405 IF" "': 547-5057.

T19N-R2E SW QUARTER OF By Charles Wall There are various uses made of old vehicles and farm machinery, besides taking them to the metal recyclers. Some rural residents show great ingenuity to make useful items and ornamental items from worn out and obsolete machines. Some people use old farm equipment as ornamental objects in their yard. It gives the yard and surround- ings a rustic look or an old farm appearance. I enjoy seeing those displays. In 1950. I did not see any of these rustic displays in yards. Some of that machinery would be around the farmstead, but it would be in operation and not for decoration. Maybe that generation was just too close to the horse-drawn implements and hand tools. They had just come out of World War II, and they wanted something modern and streamlined. But now. we often see old farm tools as decorations. I like it. A favorite is a cream separator. Other decora- tions include cream cans and milk cans. Cream cans were five gallons and milk cans were ten gallons. Also used are cultivators, cotton planters, walking plows, steel wagon wheels, and implement wheels. Wooden wagon wheels are sometimes used, but they are scarce. Old washing machines have been filled with soil and have flowering plants growing in them. Lynn and Kelly Kinder have a good yard display which includes a horse-drawn mowing machine, imple- ment wheels, and other tools. Some old hand tools are used for inside decorations like in family rooms or even in restaurants. These tools are hung on walls and include cotton scales, hay knives, hand corn planters, and cross cut saws. Another good use for old tools and horse-drawn imple- ments is for them to be put on display at the farm tool and implement collection at the Oklahoma Territorial Plaza here at Perkins. The curators of this collection, Bob and Norma Constien, have a column each week on this page which shows illustrations of the old tools. Other town have displays and museums of old farm tools, like the Phieffer collection at the Payne County Expo Center. This is good both for education and tourism. My grandsons have resurrected some old farm tools, like a corn planter, cultivator, and corn picker for their special field plots. The corn picker is Wayne Allen's which he used 60 years ago, and the cultivator was Palmer Sadler's. Since the age of automobiles, 1915 to present, vari- ous kinds of trailers and wagons have been made from old car and truck frames and chassis. My family had two grain trailers made from truck frames in Cegil Redus' shop in Perkins. Jerry Sadler did the work on one of them. K. D. Hoisington of Tryon built a really good hay trailer from truck frames for Wayne Allen. We have the trailer and it is still in use. One common type of trailer used in recent times is the bed from an old pickup with the frame and ear axle still intact with the bed. l The hopper bins of old combines make good con- tainers for small batches of feed and seed. The bins hold from 15 to 55 bush- els. The bins are removed from the original combine, and a framework of steel is used to keep it right side up. Another idea is to take the back part of an old combine body and make a little house for a calf, sheep, or dog. Gary Cun- ningham west of Perkins on Highway 33, made a dog house out of an old Alli s-Chalmers Gleaner combine. And guess what the name of his gog is? Her name is Allis!
