Title Each Man to His Own Liking
Description Paul Smith would often stop to talk to Jim on the street when he ran home for dinner from Manti Meat Market. They were neighbors-the back part of their lots had a common boundary line. "".¦/ell, Jim," he'd say, "Shall we go hone and get something to eat?" "I d o n* t think I o r t a," Jim would answer. But he always came. He helped Paul check the cows and horses to see if they had enough feed and water, while Geneva fried the meat Paul brought with him, unless it was washday, when they had navy beans on a ham bone. She emptied a quart bottle of peaches into a bowl and passed them to Jim. He set it down on his plate and ate the whole quart. After that she dished peaches up for each family member and gave him those that were left-about 2/3 of them. Jim sure did like fresh bottled peaches! Slmer died in the Veterans Hospital in May, 1946. Jim died in July, 1946, and Henry died in 1951. In every man's life there comes a time when a younger generation grows up and pushes the old timer aside. Only their families revere them-but the three Dennison brothers had no children to carry on their name. As Jim said, "When the Lord, don't want you, and the Devil won't have you-what can you do?" But there are many friends who still remember the past and laugh with pleasure at the tales Jim, Henry, and Elmer left for us. 21
