Title The Latern
Description "That was great," Peter answered, ignoring Jody's tale of abuse, "and when the choir sang so beautifully , with Dad, Hans, and Dorothea all helping, "I almost cried." Hans and Dorothea were older members of the family. "Will President Young be here today?" asked Jody. "Not this time, it isn't that important," explained Peter. "This is just the blasting to loosen the rock so they can excavate the top part of the hill. Then the temple will be built on the lower half." "Will they make roads up to the temple?" "Of course." "And will it really take a hundred cans of black powder, all they can find in Utah, to blow that top pieve off?" Jody's voice shook with excitement. "They won't blow it off. They will just loosen the rock so they can move some of it away. The best rocks will be left there for the building." "You see, it is like this," Peter went on. "All winter Hans and Dad have been digging, along with the other men. They have made a tunnel a long way back, perhaps two hundred feet. Then two more twelve foot tunnels join the first one, forming a T shape. They will put the black powder in these tunnels. Today they will light the fuse and bang! All the rocks will be shaken up." The boys hurried the cows alone only to be interrunted bv the train as it rolled oown the tracks. Tne train, now in its ninth year of operation was of great service to the scattered communities of Utah. Jody waved as it went by, and the greeting was returned by the engineer and a few passengers. "Hoppe that train is bringing coal and oil (kerosene) for my lantern," said Peter. I haven't had any for a long time". Coal had not been discovered in Utah at this time, and coal products were shipped in from other states. - 28 -
