Title Each Man to His Own Liking
Description The Dennison brothers hauled hay for farmers in the valley. They were instructed to haul the second crop off as soon as possible so they could water the third crop over while there was still enough irrigation water to do it. Jim made the decision. 'Veil, he c'n make me lope, but I'll be *@J? if he c'n make me trot," and they continued to work at their usual pace* Jim, Henry and Skib hauled logs from I>uck Fork in Six Mile Canyon and Works Sawmill up Mayfield Canyon. They could only pull half a load at a time from the draw on the other side, up to the top, where they unloaded them and went back for the other half. When they got to the top they loaded all the logs on the wagon and came down the canyon, Jim was weaving down the street past the Millstream Bance Hall when Andrew Judd, a teacher at Manti High School, stopped him and asked, "Are you all right? Are you sure you can make it?" Jim, referring to hauling1 two jags to make a load answered, "Ho, but if I can't make it in one trip, I c'n make it in two." Jim, Henry and Elmer (Skib) had three teams and three heavy iron-tyred wagons that they hauled logs with. They were cleaning the corral and there were a million flies. A horse fly bit jijn. "*#!& you," Jim cussed. "Just for that you c'n all get off." Jim and Henry were bringing a load of logs down the canyon when their load slipped and they had to stop and re-adjust it and tighten the chains around it. Henry was in excruciating pain; the load was heavy and the wheel was relentless. "Jim! Oh, Jim! Step the horses up a step, the wagon' s on my to e." 20
