Title There is a Time to Live and Time to Die
Description kitchen. There was no indoor plumbing and no refrigerator. We had my mother's old coal stove, a green studio couch and a maple table with two chairs that we bought from Christiansen's in Ephraim, a copper boiler from A. 0, Anderson's in Manti, a chest of drawers and a cedar chest. Our washtub was stored behind the stove, and we had several orange crates to hold utensils and dishes and groceries. Our dining-living-sleeping room had one light hanging from the ceiling, as did the lean-to. The floors and walls were bare, and there were no blinds or curtains on the two windows, The holey screen door provided lots of entries for insects, so we hung numerous fly-catching strips from the ceiling. Behind the house to the north--probably 15 steps away--was the one-hole Chick Sale "meditation" shack. Next to it and fewer than 10 steps away was the well. I never could pump it enough to get rid of the muddy brown color nor the taste of epsom salts, so the Neilsons down the lane (they had indoor plumbing) let us haul clear water from their well. What a difference today! * * * THERE IS A TIME TO LIVE AND A TIME TO DIE Conrad Frischknecht 12225 Shady Wood Lane SW Tacoma, UA 98498 Honorable Mention Anecdote In the early days of Manti, a marauding band of Ute Indians camped nearby the settlement. Before leaving, they built a stockade by setting posts close together on what was to become the Temple Hill. In it they incarcerated three old squaws whose only short-comings were age and incapacity. They were cast off as useless and were condemned to die from thirst, hunger and exposure to the elements. 6
