STRING BINDER TRIAL.
(From our own Correspoij^M®,) CHRiSTCHUECii.'fIain 5.
The trial of the string binder in Mr. John Overend’s paddock, at Prebbleton, to-day, was the commencement of a new era in harvesting in New Zealand. Nothing could be more complete than the work done, and no crop was ever better tied. It is a much more complete machine than the wire binder in many respects, and especially surpasses it in the uniform size of the sheaves, in tightness of binding, and in being entirely unaffected by the wind. Unfortunately there will be none to be had this season, but the}' will be used next season, as the string binder can bo attached in substitution of the wire binder. The coil of twine will be less than that of wire, the bight is perfectly secure, and the binding more uniformly tight.
