Don't you wonder what the pioneers would think of today? They hauled lumber for their houses from Waterville, a 5 to 10-day journey and today, the trip can be made in a couple of hours. They turned the thick sod with a one-bottom plow. pulled by one horse or oxen. Cows were milked, fed and watered and wood was cut before the man went to the field.The day ended at a reasonable time as the animal needed rest. food and water and the man had chores to do before dark. Today, giant tractors cover many acres in a day, while the plow is rusting from non-use. These are the days of no-till. Many homes have central heat and air. modern appliances and are connected with the world through the imernet. These and many other inven- tions have made life easier since this land was declared a state. Happy Birthday Kansas, tomorrow.
