Title Each Man to His Own Liking
Description Street, between First and Second South, at one time was owned by the Independent Order of Odd Fellows. Jim, Henry and Elmer (also called Skib) were walking down the street and saw the newly installed sign "I 0 0 F" identifying the building. "By gum," Jim remarked, "I'm sure that's fu'ther than a hunnert feet." Jim had been ailing and after postponing a trip to the doctor for weeks, he finally decided he'd better stop and find out what his malady was. After debating back and forth all that time, he found that Dr. G. L. Sears had been called out to deliver a baby and his office was closed. Jim walked across the hall to Dr. Fred Tuttle, the dentist. "Fred, will you pull ma tooth?" he asked. "Certainly. Which tooth do you need pulled?" "It don't make no difference. I jus1 don't wanna make this trip for nothin'," Jim answered. Until Elmer left for military duty, all three brothers declared that they had never loat anything in Salt Lake and what's more, they wouldn't waste their time going up there. Then Elmer had to spend a couple of days there. When he registered at the hotel, the clerk asked if he intended to atay Saturday night, explaining that it would cost him an extra 31.00 for a hot bath. "Ho! I e'n have a bath at home," Elmer stated emphatically. "Ho need a me stayin* over for that." When Elmer moved his bride into the house where the three bachelors had lived together, Henry and Jim moved to a little wood shack where Manti City Yards are now located. I don't know if they were celebrating or mourning, but they drank too much that night and got fence and muttered, "Kow don't get in a hurry. Just stay back and don't crowd. There's goin' to be plenty for all." 19
