My uncle ~nd I rode in the freight c~r with the cow, the pigs end the c~icken~ from Waterloo, Iow~. My mother and the others came on the I~ssonger later. We landed at Rozet, unloaded our belongings ~n sheep pen, end my mother and I stayed with the .household furnishings until my uncle, George Stull could obtain a teem and wagon to take our goods to the ranch Homestead ton miles North- east of Rozet. This grea# outdoor country was so different from our homo In Waterloo where we had run- ning water, modern plumbing, gas lights and a gas cook stove. Every evening I would watch the lamplighter make his rounds, turning on the gas and lighting the lamps at each street intersec- tion. school which she held in our house. We used these song books in our first school at fhe home. stead. My mother held school i~ our house and the children come for ten miles around, some on horse back, some walked seven miles to school. One morning before we had eaten our breakfast, Selma and John Raudsep came ~, they had walked the seven miles to sc~hool. Again we used the song hooks the call porter had left us, for text books, until we could get regular text books two months later. We used these for our read- ing, spelling, singing ~ for English Grammar lessons. We e~joyed our little. No cars, no smog, instead cattle, sheep and horses. The coyotes would bowl from the hills every evening. This would send chili down my back end into my he~rt. We would milk the cows, tend the chickens and the pigs, and the horses, while the coyotes howled their serenade. The street car ran pest cur door, ~md for five cents we could 9o to the town or to church. When we came to Wyoming ,11 of these coovenience~ were c~ed, We were on our own. We built our owe plumbing, we dug our well by dtovel and a hoist, that is if you could find water, otherwise you walked to the creek half mile away, horses and cattle ~11 drank out of them water heloo, we would skim the scum and the bugs off of the water, dip up the water in our palls and carry ~ water to our home b~k up the bill. My mother and I would take a boiler end a pail, walk to our noighbore a mile away, the well had been dug by hlmcl and wM r~l good water. We would let down their cNdcon bucket, fill our boiler h~lf full and the I~il, then carry the precious water to our home in the tent. Of course we would stop and sit down a few times on the way to rest. For cooking and ,heating we g~thered up sage bruth and cow chips. Th~ we would take roll core that we brought with us from Waterloo, trek up to the Lone Pine ridge, gather up pine knots and branches and wheel these down to our home a mile away. Mother taught school et Reset this Winter of 1910 and she and I would walk up to the school one ~ three fourths miles from Rozot, where mother rented an upstairs room in the Section House. Then Friday night we would walk to the ranch eight miles across the prairie. Our food was not always the best, my u~cle was gone a lot of the time, and we tmcl no way to bring food from Meorcroft or Rozet. That ~sgiving my grond- mother, my aunt a~d my cousin had our dinner end it co4wlstod 'of wheat middlings cooked to ,a mush, with a bit of sugar on it and chicke~t. The folks had so little and yet we were all so happy, with our so Iittlo. We killed and ate rabbits which were plentiful and young Sage chickens were a feast. We were poor I suppose - but we were rich in the greet life on the outdoor plains. You had to take care of the chickens quite well or the coyotes and the weasels would take care of them for you. We had so much to be H~mkful for, but from tod,ys stmwlpoint so very little. But wealth and things do not make for a perso#s happiness. There is a certain satisfaction thee you derive free raising your own food. Cows for their milk, Chickens, Pigs ~ the g~rd~n. You learn to Imow what it is to depend on the Lord to provide the rein. You work herd to cultivate the g~rden. You know what it is to work hard and have little, the joy of living, yes freedom ~nd no k~omo or sides tax. Now we I~ve so n~my conveniences, the Auto, the T. V., the Radio. Modern plumbing in our homes. The refrigerator, inste~ of lowering our butter end milk on a rope down into the well for coeli~g. A wuhing n~d~ine Inste~ of the old scrub board. So n~ny modem gadgets. What would a mother think tod~/ if she had to go out and chop wood to get dinner. While father would ba walking behind the plow, break- ing up the soil for pleating. And now we h~ve our lovely churches, we cam go to these and thank our Great Creator for the blessing tt~t He has given us. Yes, we c~1 count our so m~mt blessings ~nd see wh~ the Lord has dome for us. His greatest of all blessings is to have the Lord Jesus Christ In our lives. Guiding us in our doily walk. Tskkng hold of our hand helping us, giving us the Joy of living close to Him. All the Lord asks of us, is that we put our faith ~md trust in Him, mncl take Him as our Sovlour. He blesses us so mud% ~ we lt~rdly hold ell of tkm~n~rly blessings. Some day every knee shell bend to the lord, end every hood sh~ll bow. The gre~est of all thanksgiving is to hove the Lords Holy Spirit in our lives, blessing us, guidi,ng our lives, helping us to live better with our ~eigid~r. As time pa~m~l a Baptist call porter came As we approach this Christmas Seem let out our way end left us a few song hymnals a~l us give thanks to the Lord for His moot gracious with these my grandmother organized a Su~rtclay gift, A life wi~h the Lord Jesus for all eternity.
